Finding the Right Electrician
Bad wiring is a common cause of fire and we all know how devastating it can be. Therefore, be sure to study all of your options carefully before deciding on an electrician to hire.
Licensing and Insurance Coverage
First off, check whether the electrician you may be eyeing is licensed. This is your assurance that the contractor has completed all state-required courses and practical work that allow him to do his job correctly and safely. Let them show proof if they say they’re licensed, and make sure the license is current and valid for the electrical work you want them to do. Keep in mind that some electrical licensed carry restrictions. Also ensure that the electrician has both workman’s compensation and liability insurance. Again, if they say they’re covered, ask for proof. In Montreal, one of the most trusted licensed and injured contractors is Ozen Electrique.
Instead of focusing on just one prospect, approach three different electricians and ask for quotes (you may end up confused if you consider more than three choices). Communicate exactly the kind of work you need them to do. In return, they should provide you a detailed quote with a breakdown of prices. When you have all three quotes, sit down and compare them, and find the one that best matches your needs, standards and budget. If you’re in Montreal, Ozen Electrique is one of the most popular contractors that will be happy to give you a quote.
As you might expect, not all electricians are created equal. There are those who are more qualified and experienced than the others, with some even having accreditation by specific industry bodies. For instance, if you hire a Master Electrician, you can be sure that he has at least three years’ experience and will be able to offer you a 12-month workmanship warranty. This type of electrician is your best choice when it comes to workmanship and electrical safety. A good number of organizations also offer accreditation in the field of energy efficiency. With skyrocketing electricity costs nowadays, you may want to use an electrician who has this type of accreditation. When it comes to electrical work in Montreal, Ozen Electrique is one of the most trusted names.
A personal referral given by someone you trust can be very helpful in your search for a good electrician. Because someone you actually know is telling you that this particular electrician is a good find, you don’t have to spend so much time searching for information about him. If getting a recommendation is impossible for some reason (for example, you’re new in town and don’t know many people), just ask your prospect for references and be sure to speak to them. Ask them what in particular they liked about the electrician and if they would have him again for a future need. If you’re in Montreal, Ozen Electrique is one of the best options you have.
[Who wants to deal with an electrician who is moody or shows bad workmanship? If only for the sake of your project, hire somebody you can be comfortable around. A professional electrician will also come on time and call you if they’re held up. With Ozen Electrique, professionalism is a given.
