How to Choose a Good Electrician
Faulty wiring can cause fire, and we all know the dangers that come with it. Hence, make sure you take your time going through your options before deciding to hire an electrician.
Licensing and Insurance Coverage
First off, check whether the electrician you may be eyeing is licensed. This is your assurance that the contractor has completed all state-required courses and practical work that allow him to do his job correctly and safely. Ask for proof of their license, and check whether it’s current and valid for the kind of work you plan to hire them for. Remember that some electrical licenses have restrictions. Also ensure that the electrician has both workman’s compensation and liability insurance. Again, if they say they’re covered, ask for proof. In Montreal, one of the most trusted licensed and injured contractors is Ozen Electrique.
Instead of focusing on just one prospect, approach three different electricians and ask for quotes (you may end up confused if you consider more than three choices). The idea is to describe to them as carefully and accurately as possible the kind of work you need. They should give you a quote that comes complete with all the details, including a price breakdown. Once you have the quotes, sit down and make comparisons, and go for the one that matches your standards, needs and budget the most. Ozen Electrique in Montreal will be eager to provide a quote upon your request.
What likes an electrician who has an unpleasant attitude and gives poor workmanship? If only for the sake of your project, hire somebody you can be comfortable around. A professional electrician will also come on time and call you if they’re held up. At Ozen Electrique, professionalism is a basic ingredient of their service.
