Choosing an Electrical Contractor

Posted by: headm on: May 2, 2014

Choosing an electrical contractor for your home or business project can be very worrying, especially if you have no knowledge in the field. Many electrical contractors in Lancashire are specialists in specialised fields and therefore it is helpful if you can identify what your particular need before starting your search for the right specialist.

Some questions you may want to consider are:

Is your need for a new construction project or a major renovation to an existing building?
Do you need the service and repair of existing electrical items?
Where is the work to be carried out?

Once you have identified your requirements you will need to find a contractor who is technically proficient, reputable and who has a good understanding of your needs.

Your chosen contractor should hold a recognised electrical safety standard such as the NEC (National Electrical Code). The firm should be financially sound and should be well experienced with all relevant qualifications. Ask for references and check them. Finally, enquire about the contractors warranty and insurance details and get it all down in writing. Will the contractor guarantee the work and ensure that the work meets the required standards. Get a written estimate of the cost and always ask to see their insurance certificate.
