Tips for Finding an Electrician in Arkansas

You need an electrician, and you want to hire a licensed and reputable electrical contractor in Arkansas. An electrician search on Google returns quite a few results. With so many options, what do you really need to be thinking about when you need an electrician? As electricians in Arkansas, we’ve seen it all in this business. Our customers often have similar concerns, so we’ve taken those concerns and compiled a list of tips to help you find the right electrician:

Licensed / Bonded / Insured

This goes without saying. You do not want to hire a buddy, nor do you want to do it yourself. We highly recommend that you hire a licensed, bonded, and insured electrical contractor. One thing is for sure; electricity is dangerous. Planning for new construction and remodeling also requires careful consideration, and is best handled by a licensed electrician. Get peace of mind knowing that you’re safe from dealing with electricity, and that your electrician is completely legitimate and has done jobs just like yours hundreds of times.


According to FEMA, 1,280 Americans are either injured or die from electrical fires caused in homes each year.[1] The safety of your home and of your family depends on selecting an experienced electrician. The US Fire Administration goes on to say that electrical work should be done only by a qualified electrician.[2]


For residents of central Arkansas, we recommend that you find an electrician that is a member of reputable business and industry groups, such as the BBB, the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) and ABC (Associated Builders & Contractors of Arkansas.) Your electrician should have an extensive background in electrical service and a respectful history with the community.
