***PLEASE READ*** I will begin this review by expressing the genuine feeling of desperation I was experiencing before I came to Thumbtack seeking help. Unfortunately, I had to kick out contractors that had left behind a mess of unfinished and unsatisfactory work. I came to Thumbtack hoping for a miracle and I found that miracle with Julio’s iFix Handyman Services. Let me begin by saying how prompt Julio was in replying to my inquiry about fixing things such as unfinished tile and grouting, drywall repairs, kitchen countertop finishing, etc. Julio informed me that he and his team would be able to assist in my laundry list of items. When Julio’s team arrived at my home (on time) I was wowed by their professionalism and their level of expertise and experience! The work that they performed superbly exceeded my expectations and I want anyone reading this to know that there is no need to look any further for any of your handyman service needs. I have already secured their services for another job and will continue to use them for my home’s handyman and contracting needs. Thank you Julio and team! You all saved the day!See more

First and foremost, I want to commend Leo and his partner who put in work and fixed my electrical issues throughout my entire home. Who not only fixed the many issues, but also help me understand what and why exactly these shortages/outages were happening. My personal situation was very urgent and they were able to give me a reasonable quote and started to prep and purchased needed materials the very same day. Over the course of 3 days, they got things done in a great timely manner... even through the recent San Diego heatwave! Also while working on my home he installed a new, very much needed electrical panel on my older home, ran a dedicated line for my new washer and dryer, and also ran new lines dedicated for my air conditioner. These guys are very professional and knowledgeable. If you’re looking for someone who will get things done look for Leo, this man did not disappoint. Thanks again Leo!See more

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

How much does a licensed electrician cost per hour?

An electrician’s average hourly rate is $75, but this price can range from $45-$120, depending on the complexity of the job and the materials needed. The total cost will also vary depending on how long your job takes and if the electrician charges for travel time.

Your location may also be a factor in determining the hourly rate of performing electrical work on your home. To get an accurate estimate of how much electrical work will cost you, contact the best electricians near you to receive free quotes.

What do I need an electrician for?

Electricians can help with a variety of electricity-related jobs around your home. If you have a new home, they can install new wiring throughout. Or if you have an old home, they can help with wiring repair. 

If your lights keep flickering, circuit breakers seem to be faulty, or outlets don’t have any power, electricians can assist in sorting out the problem. Your house is full of electrical circuits, wiring and sockets that may need repair or updating. These tasks can be safely completed by electricians in your area.

What’s the best way to set up a consultation or an appointment with an electrician during the COVID-19 pandemic?

To set up an appointment or consultation with an electrician during the COVID-19 pandemic, ensure that you are performing as much of the process digitally as possible. The best way to begin is by conducting an online search for local electricians. Ask if they can perform consultations over a phone or video call to comply with social distancing mandates. You should also discuss a strategy for how to complete the project during social distancing or whether the project should be completed once the pandemic has ended.

How do I hire an electrician?

Go online to find a list of the best electricians in your area. View each individual electrician’s profile and learn more about their services and expertise. Then, read reviews from satisfied customers as well as any issues they may have encountered. This will help you find one with the right experience to work safely in your home.

You should also spend some time researching what qualifications and credentials they have. You might find information about their license on their profile, or you might need to check your local and state government’s website to verify their license. 

Once you’ve done a bit of research, ask to receive free estimates from several electricians in your area. Ultimately, hire the most qualified electrician who can complete your project at a reasonable price.

Do electricians do free estimates?

Yes, they do. Whether you’re looking for new electrical work or wiring repair, the electrician should offer you a free estimate. 

Go online to find the best electricians near you. After researching and finding a few pros who seem qualified for your job, go ahead and request a quote to find out how much those electricians will charge you.

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.

Contact the best electricians near you today to start receiving free estimates for your project.

How can I find out if an electrician is considered an essential COVID-19 service provider?

Guidelines are available from both local and federal government agencies to clarify which services qualify as essential during the COVID-19 pandemic. To determine whether an electrician is considered an essential service provider in your area, check your city or state’s government websites.

For federal guidelines, consult CISA’s Identifying Critical Infrastructure During COVID-19 page, which outlines 16 critical infrastructure sectors. But not that some, not all, jurisdictions follow CISA’s definitions of critical infrastructure.

Is it worth it to hire an electrician?

Yes, it's usually worth it to hire an electrician instead of doing the work yourself.

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.

I had an amazing experience with The Electricians. They literally came out less than 2 hours after I reached out and did a great job replacing 20+ switches and fixing a bathroom fan. They were also very friendly, reasonably priced, and quick. I will not use anyone else in the future for any electrician needs I have.

We had to find other electricians to finish the work United Electric Inc started because the way their work was executed was very disappointing.

The electrician that came out was great and very helpful. But, I thought the price was a bit high. For about 35 minutes of work, we paid $225.

Danny is a hard worker and a competent electrician. He installed 2 ceiling fans for me. My only issue is that as part of the quoted service, he painted and textured over damage he did to the ceilings and walls while installing the fans. This part of the job was done very poorly. The patch and paint work will have to be redone. He charged me extra to do that work and it was not worth the additional money. However, his work as an electrician was fine.
