They took great care in assessing the trees and came up with a plan to safely and efficiently cut them down. Not only did they do a fantastic job with the tree cutting, but they also made sure to clean up the area afterward, leaving no trace behind. Their attention to detail and commitment to customer satisfaction really stood out to me. I highly recommend their services to anyone in need of tree cutting." Read more

Do electricians offer free estimates?

How do I find a nearby electrician to hire?

Start by searching online to find licensed electricians in your area. After researching and finding potential candidates:

  • Compare at least three free estimates from reputable electricians.
  • Select electrical companies that are licensed, bonded, and experienced.
  • Verify their insurance, worker’s compensation, and bond guarantees.
  • Look at their reviews on HomeGuide and Google.
  • Ask about their warranties and guarantees.
  • Ask for a written contract, warranty, and detailed estimate.
  • Be cautious of cheap electricians as quality may suffer.

After asking questions and verifying their credentials, hire the most qualified and affordable electrician near you.

What questions should I ask a local electrician?

The best residential electrical contractors are licensed, bonded, insured, and provide free estimates.

When looking for the best electrician, ask the following questions:

  • Are you licensed?
  • How long have you been in business?
  • Is your electrical work insured or bonded?
  • How much will my project cost? Can I get a written estimate?
  • Do you offer a warranty or guarantee?
  • Will you be performing the work or someone else?
  • What permits do I need, and will you pull them?

Can I do electrical work myself?

Doing your own electrical work without a license is not recommended. Even small, simple electrical problems can be dangerous and lead to harming yourself or your home. Licensed electricians have specialized training to perform work safely without damaging your home.

While I have to call around or text to get a quote, Walter called me, and offer me a good deal. He came before the scheduled time, very nice, honest, and patient. He knows exactly what to do, and patiently explained what is the problem, and we really appreciate it. Great service, and we definitely will use his service on our next projects.
