Fixing Your Electrical System? Leave it to the Pros.
Whether you hire a contractor or try to perform home improvements by yourself, it's important to make sure they're done correctly. When it comes to your home's electrical system, it's best to have a licensed electrician assess and repair electrical issues. Here are seven reasons why calling in the pros is a wise decision:
1) They are Licensed Professionals
If an accident occurs while you or an unlicensed contractor is working on your electrical panel, there's a good chance your homeowners policy may deny the claim. A licensed contractor carries their own insurance and should have a surety bond in place. This is a protective measure to ensure the job is done safely and correctly.
2) You Need a Technology-Savvy Electrician
While you may have done electrical wiring in the past, building codes and technological improvements often affect electrical requirements. A licensed electrician is educated and well-versed in the latest electrical issues and smart-home technology.
3) They Have Safety Expertise
Safety is the main component of every electrician's philosophy. Rushing a job on your own and not inspecting every aspect of a potential hazard can have serious consequences. Choosing a licensed electrician ensures that the job is done safely and effectively.
4) You'll Save Money in the Long Run
If you're repairing electrical wires or installing a new GFCI outlet, you could cost yourself a lot of money. If the outlet is installed improperly, it could short-circuit new appliances or damage your electrical panel. Ask a qualified electrician to perform small electrical upgrades, which can save you from costly appliance replacement.
5) They Understand Permit Requirements
The pros at Ragsdale know the laws and will ensure that the proper permits are in place before starting a job. Only a licensed electrical contractor is legally permitted to work on a residential property.
