4 Questions You Should Ask Your Electricians

Whether you’re replacing an outdated lighting system or are in need of residential electrical repair, it’s important that you work with the right team of electricians to ensure the success of your project. This will happen if you ask the right questions before you hire them. 

In this post, our experts at Bailey & Shipp Electric list four questions you should ask your prospective electricians.

1. Are You Licensed, Insured, and Bonded?

This should be your first question as you’ll want to ensure that the electric company you’re working with is comprised of valid contractors. The updated license shows that the company in question has been through the necessary training and education, while insurance and bonding protects you from being liable financially for any accidents that may happen on your property.

Bailey & Shipp Electric only hires licensed residential electricians. We handpick our expert technicians to ensure homeowners like you get quality service every time.

2. How Long Have You Been in Business?

Keep in mind that experience is almost as important as having a license. You’ll want to work with a knowledgeable electric company with years of industry experience. Since 2006, we have been providing quality services to our customers.

3. Do You Offer Emergency Services?

Not all electric problems happen on a schedule; in fact, most happen when you least expect them. Therefore, you’ll want to work with a company that offers you 24/7 emergency service for your convenience and safety.

4. Do You Have Any References?

Finally, ask your prospective electricians if they can provide you with any references or a portfolio of recent projects. This allows you to check the quality of their workmanship and gauge if the contractor in question can stand by their work.
