Finding the Right Electrician
Poor wiring is a leading cause of fires, and we’re all aware of the dangers. Hence, make sure you take your time going through your options before deciding to hire an electrician.
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. If they tell you they’re licensed, ask for proof, and make sure it’s current and cover the type of electrical work you need. Keep in mind that some electrical licensed carry restrictions. At the same time, see to it that the electrician is covered by workman’s compensation and liability coverage. Again, if they claim they’re covered, ask to see evidence. If you’re in Montreal, you can trust Ozen Electrique, a licensed and insured electrical contractor that can give you all the security you need.
It’s always a good idea to ask for at least three quotes from different electricians (more than three can be confusing). The idea is to describe to them as carefully and accurately as possible the kind of work you need. In return, they should provide you a detailed quote with a breakdown of prices. Once you have the quotes, sit down and make comparisons, and go for the one that matches your standards, needs and budget the most. If you’re in Montreal, Ozen Electrique is one of the most popular contractors that will be happy to give you a quote.
