"Most important , just good people you can trust." Adam Wager, customer "By far the best experience I’ve ever had with an electrician. He’s very punctual and his work is unmatched. In a short time he was able to swap out a hideous single fixture with three beautiful pendants. He was very clean and you wouldn’t even know that he drilled holes in Sheetrock. 10/10 will be using him again. This time I plan on making it a bigger project. I’m so happy I found him"Ashley R.

  • 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?

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.
