It is important to ask lots of questions before hiring a electrician. Most electricians are honest and capable of doing a very good job for you. However, there will be a few that are not. Make sure that you ask plenty of questions before hiring any electrician. Some electricians don’t handle all kinds of projects and this is something you should always keep in mind. Some electricians are only focused on construction and remodeling jobs. Whilst other electricians prefer doing minor jobs and repairs. It is for this reason that you will need to outline to the electrician before any work commences what kind of work you will need done and what type of project you need completing.
It is very important to think about certain things before hiring a electrician. Ask if the electrician is insured as you would not want to be liable if a worker is injured while working in your home.
Our electricans in Celbridge do not mind giving you a estimate at your home. If it is just a small job they can loose money just by driving out to your home. So the electrician may give you a minimum price or a fixed price for the job you want done. You can call around and get the best price for the work if you are not happy. It is a good thing to get the best overall price for the job however this does not mean you have the best electrician to do the job..
You will need certain materials for the job you have in mind but just because you think it will save you money. We would recommend not buying these materials yourself to save money because it usually does not save you money. It is always best practise to let the electrician buy the materials you need because he will know exactly what materials you will need and how much you will need for the job.
All electricians may need to cut holes in your wall for the work he is doing. Some electricians will not repair the damage done so always ask before the job has started what kind of damage doing the job will cause to the overall finish and it the electrician will look after the final finish. On small projects, a electrician will want to be paid when the job is finished. On large projects, an electrician may ask for a deposit before he/she starts the job. When the project is completed, he will either want the balance paid or some sort of payment plan will be set up for you.
Sometimes an electrician has to bring assistants to get the work completed on a larger job so he may have to charge a little more money. So it is always important to ask before any job starts so you are not surprised or shocked when the final bill comes. It is always best to write down all the questions you can think of before you meet with your electrician.
