6 Rules For Hiring An Electrical Contractor for Your DIY Remodeling Project
When it comes to handling the electrical part of your DYI projects you need a fully licensed, highly experienced electrician on your team. You can rely on Clover Electric to help with your remodeling project. Whether you’re doing the work yourself or you’ve hired building contractors, we can work with you to make sure you get what you’re paying for. When you bring us in to the project, we can review the existing electrical system and discuss how it needs to be changed to meet your new needs. Or, you may be surprised that no changes need to be made. We’re here to help you make the right decisions.
Get it in writing. Some companies might lure you in with a great price on electrical work. But, half way through the project they find a problem. All of a sudden, the price goes way up. A reputable electrician knows what it takes to get the job done right and will be able to give you a price up-front with no surprises later on.
Rule#3 Be sure to check with your local building codes. You may need to get a permit for some electrical work. A reputable electrician is proud to show their work off to an inspector. The other guys may not want anyone to see their work. This can be dangerous. Did you know that some insurance companies won’t pay on a fire claim if a permit wasn’t pulled and a final inspection was done?
Rule #4 Look for experience. A company with just a few years of experience may not be there for you when you need them most. Look for an established company with hometown roots. Clover Electric is local and family owned. You can talk to the owner. Give them a call!
Rule #5 Beware of the lowest price. Contractors who cut corners can charge a lot less for their services. But who’s paying for it in the long run? You are! Budget contractors hire cheap labor and don’t have the resources to follow up if something goes wrong.
Rule #6 Do your research. Check out on-line reviews and ask for references. You can also call the Better Business Bureau to see if they’ve registered a lot of complaints. Keep in mind, a good contractor will stand by their work. Clover does!
The bottom line is you get what you pay for. Clover Electric will never let you down and will always be on your side to make sure everything is done safely, correctly and on budget.
