If you need work done in your home, make sure you know where the problem areas are. While for the most part, finding a great electrician who won’t compromise your trust should be simple, there are a few rules to follow which you can use to buffer yourself against any likely problems.
Here are four of the big ‘don’ts’ with regards to your home electrics.
1. Not Finding your Electrical Guru
Always find an Electrician you want to keep on your contacts list. You’ll recognise them by their punctuality, honesty, and most importantly a real motivation for your safety. Never accept a corner cutter, or hire someone you’re not convinced cares about the job. There are many ways you can identify a great electrician!
2. Not Using the Services Offered
Seek out obligation free quotes and refuse to be hassled to take them on if you aren’t convinced the service is right for you. Once you’ve identified your provider, you should feel comfortable to ask questions, to enquire about prices and ask about the best ways to save. Never hire a service provider who refuses to be transparent with you about costs.
3. Getting it on Paper
A written quote is not a contract, it’s simply an indicator of the estimated amount. You should always be contacted by your service provider should that amount be likely to be exceeded. Check to make sure this is the practise of your electrician, and make your needs known.
4. Not Making Decisions Based on Your Needs
Don’t let anyone decide for you where the best place for your new outlets are, choose colours or styles for you, or give you unsolicited advice. As the homeowner, safety is an issue not to be compromised, but you shouldn’t compromise your own tastes either. Ask questions about your options and make sure your needs are met where they exist.
