Is it worth it to hire an electrician?

Electrical work can be very dangerous. The pros spend many years working and studying before they become licensed and certified. That knowledge and training can help them work safely and perform the job without harming themselves or your home. 

Even a small wiring repair job can be unsafe if not done correctly. Hiring someone that has specialized training on how to do each specific job is the safest choice.

What questions should I ask an electrician?

Here are a few questions you should ask any electrician you’re considering hiring:

  • Are you licensed or certified? A professional electrician should have this information ready and up to date. 
  • Do you have any references? Ask for references to learn about their work history from previous customers. You may be able to look online at reviews, but it’s also good to speak to someone to find out their experience with this electrician. 
  • What types of services do you offer? Whether you need repairs or installation services, make sure the electrician can perform the work you need.
  • How long will the job take? This will help you set expectations and rearrange your schedule (if needed).
  • Can you send me free estimates? Request a job quote or estimate. This will help with comparing different electricians. The numbers may vary, but be sure to factor in the experience of each person, as well as the scope of electrical work you’re asking about.

Do electricians offer remote or virtual services?

While electrical work is typically performed in person, you may come across some electrician profiles that state the pro is offering remote services. If you do, contact local electricians to discuss your particular project and what type of remote services they may offer.

Dana fixed a 3-way switch wiring issue in my home that two other electricians failed at before him. He came in with a mindset of solving the problem and wasted no time in useless complaining about the situation at hand (like my prior electricians). He also installed 2 recessed lights in my bathrooms, one of which was very tricky due to lack of an attic space. Nonetheless, he was able to install the light without cutting open the ceiling dry wall! All of this without any fidgeting... a very rare and refreshing trait among pros these days!! Dana will me my first choice for any and all electrical work in the future.

Luis was able to resolve an issue which two other experienced electricians could not. He went the extra mile to diagnose the problem within several outlets and wiring issues within them, repaired the problem, replaced several outlets, and restored power to outlets which had gone out both upstairs and downstairs in my home. I will most definitely be using him again. Highly recommend his services.

Thumbtack Customer
What I like about Sam, from Sam’s Services, is his professionalism, patience, and his willingness to assist his client despite of the difficulties he encounters. We had an electrical outlet that suddenly stopped working, I contacted Sam via Thumbtack and he was able to come on the same day to check out what the issue was. Sam diagnosed that it was a bad outlet based on the visual inspection, which was similar to what other electricians had suggested prior to Sam. But since Sam gave me a reasonable price on changing out the outlet, I hired Sam on the spot. Little did we know, the issue was not the outlet, it was more complicated than just the outlet itself. To make the long story short, Sam was very patient to try to solve the root cause of the outlet issue. After couple hours of investigation and running back and forth between the outlet, circuit breaker, crawl space, and inside the house, Sam was able to find the source of the problem! And most importantly, he fixed it!! Based on my experience with Sam’s Services, I highly recommend Sam's Services to anyone that is looking for a reliable, professional, and patient electrician who will make sure his job is done correctly! I will definitely hire him again for future electric issues.

Dana is the best, most reliable electrician you can find, which is a rare find these days! Originally found him on Thumbtack because we were new to the area, and he did an amazing job, clean work at fair cost. Also needed him in a pinch to get some work done before we had an awning installed, and even though he was booked solid, he came out at 6am to help us out - who does that? He's the best and clearly very reliable!! Dana is very knowledgeable and has a professional demeanor - offers good suggestions. I appreciate that he not only does an efficient job, but makes it look aesthetically nice too. Sometimes tradesman get the job done, but it looks messy or looks like it was added on, but not with Dana's work! You won't be disappointed!
