How do I find a nearby electrician to hire?

  • 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?

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.
