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.

Larry was awesome. Showed up on time and even gave my mother a senior citizen discount. Larry and his helper installed a 200 amp service at our home. He was very knowledgeable. He also stated that we had some loose neutrals in our home and that was the cause of our lights flickering . We will be have Green Electric back to wire our soon to be finished basement.
