What to Know When Finding the Right Electrician in Jacksonville

If you want to protect your family or business, take time to find the right electrician to perform jobs in your home or office. Sadly, one of the leading causes of house fires is electrical problems. Here are a few tips to help when looking at electrical companies in Jacksonville to hire.

Find out if the electricians who work at the company are licensed. Do not consider hiring an electrician who is not properly licensed. A journeyman only has licensing to perform installations. A master electrician can install and design electrical systems. It is common for a journeyman to work alongside a master electrician before getting their master electrician license.

Ask the electrical companies in Jacksonville if they have insurance. This is a deal-breaker question. There is a potentially high liability with this type of work. The contractor should carry workers’ compensation insurance and liability that is at least $500,000.

It is common for electricians to specialize in a specific area. For example, some specialize in remodels and are not familiar with work done on new commercial buildings. Ask questions about the type of work the electrician does and make sure that their experience matches the project you would like to have done.

Get estimates from several contractors before deciding on one. The estimate should include pricing and incidentals. The estimate should be detailed and outline when the project could start and when it should end.
