How to choose an electrician

When it comes to the electrical wiring of your home, it is absolutely vital all work is done to strict regulations. This ensures it is safe for you, your family and any future owners of the home. Check out these few pointers to make sure your electrician is fully qualified and will provide quality workmanship.


Check their qualifications

The first step is to make sure your electrician is fully qualified to do the job, so don’t be afraid to ask about their certifications and to see their licences. Everything should be up to date. This should be the very first thing to tick off.


Ask for a quote

Electrical contractors can be costly, since it is a specialised area and often dangerous work. Before selecting your contractor, do a bit of research to see how much they will charge—generally they will provide an obligation-free quote, but this can change from contractor to contractor. Your quote should cover labour, parts and materials, so be sure to ask if it’s inclusive of these aspects. This saves you from forking out money unexpectedly later down the line.
