Know How to Choose an Electrician

Do-it-yourself projects are pretty popular these days, what with an uncertain economy and HGTV being all the rage, but most homeowners still leave the really complex jobs to the pros, and with good reason. Besides having the potential to damage your home if not done right, there are some repairs that, if not done properly, have a high potential for personal injury or even death.

Electrical repairs, even the simplest, are potentially hazardous. But, when you need a licensed electrician, how do you go about selecting one? There are a lot of electricians in Arkansas and it goes without saying that you want a good one when it comes to your home.

Here are a few tips to help:

    Ask Around: Your friends and neighbors or members of your neighborhood association will likely have had work done at some point and can provide some recommendations on who to look for, or look out for.
    Do Your Homework: You can use the Internet to research electricians in your area, or use a local business directory. A check with the local Better Business Bureau can tell you if any complaints have been lodged against a given contractor, and if those complaints have been resolved.
    Check for License: You’ll want to know that an electrician is licensed and qualified for the type of work you need done.
    Check for Insurance: Should an accident happen while your home is being worked on, you’ll want to be sure in advance that your electrician has adequate liability insurance to cover any damages and/or injuries.
