  • It really helped when you talked about the importance of choosing an electrician that is properly insured. I can see that paying attention to this can help anyone make sure they are covered in case of electrical accidents as a professional is working on it. We are trying to renovate our new house and want to make sure the extra lights we want are installed properly by an electrician that has experience doing that.

  • I agree that you need to consider an electrician’s license before you hire them. A license would show that they are experienced professionals who can do the job right for you. I need some electrical repair after a remodel went wrong, so I’ll have to find someone who is licensed to do the job.
