  • Compare at least three free estimates from reputable electricians.

  • 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.

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

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.

Mr. Walters was honest and forthright, fair in his pricing. He installed about 160 feet of wooden privacy fence in my backyard and was diligent about overcoming obstacles like trees and tree stumps that might have impeded the project. He knows his tools and knows his product and is skilled at what he does.
