Electricians And The Importance Of Hiring One With A License

Hiring an electrician doesn’t have to be stressful,

but there are things you should know before hiring an electrician or electrical contractor in Florida.

One thing that is a must for hiring any electrician is to make sure they are fully licensed.

Unfortunately, there are so called “handy men” or general contractors that advertise that

they do electrical work despite having no official licensing, or the proper expertise to do the job correctly and safely. While these unlicensed workers may charge very low fees for their services, you end up paying a lot in the end due to faulty repairs that later have to be done right. These unlicensed repairs, done by workers not properly licensed in the state of Florida can also have disastrous safety consequences. Keep in mind that electrical fires, are one of the most common causes of property damage and fires over all. It is absolutely important that anyone working on the electrical system in your home and business have the proper training, licensing, and experience to do the job correctly and safely. Also important is the liability of having someone unlicensed on your property performing the electrical work; should an unlicensed, uninsured person become injured performing work you hired them for, YOU are responsible for injuries and damages.

How do you know if the electrician you are hiring is licensed in the state of Florida?

Well, simply put, ask for it, and make sure you get the associated license number. If they are unable to produce their license, or do not have their license displayed anywhere on their site or in their store front, then you may want to look elsewhere for electrical work in your home or business.
