Electrical and Wiring Repair

  • 3 hires on Thumbtack
  • Serves Milford, CT
Working with Cheshire Contracting in my home was an excellent experience. CC provided was on of the 5 bids I received on my small remodel last year, their price came in middle of the range from 20-60K. I already had a design concept in mind, I just needed a group of solid professionals to execute my plan. Jason, who is either the owner or partner visited my home and we walked through options and the various levels of service he could provide. He quickly identified that my electrical panel would need to be upgraded as well to comply with new building code regulations. This was something no other contractors brought up, I was able to confirm his assertion after a quick review of local building ordnances. This seemly little event assured me that Jason and his team knew their stuff and had the experience I was looking for. I ended up choosing the bid from Cheshire Contracting and Jason was able to schedule the project about 6 weeks after we came to agreement. Jason put me in contact with Cheshire Contracting's inhouse designer who provided me with a 3D render of the project based on the scribbled napkin I provided them with. They were able to piece together exactly what I was going for. There were a few things that needed clarification, but with little lag in communication sorting all of that out was actually a pleasant experience which gave me a sense of participation I'm uncertain I would have received with other companies. It turned out that Jason was assigned as the project manager for my build out and I could not be happier with the level of service which he and co provided. He and his crew (who were consistently the same people) we on time every day, showed up when they said they would, were always available via phone, text and even WhatsApp. At the end of each day, the construction area was cleaned and prepped for whatever was coming up the next day. The work area was immaculate when they were not in my home! There were also some unintended challenges which I presume arise with most construction projects and Jason and his team handled each of them with ease and professionalism making sure I knew all of my options and the best way to approach each issue. The project was completed in a little over 4 weeks, which was 2 weeks faster than originally anticipated. The quality of the workmanship was top notch! I am very VERY happy and satisfied with the end results and would most definitely hire and refer Cheshire Contracting for future remodels! A++See more

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Does an electrician need to enter my home?

Whether an electrician needs to enter your home depends on the type of work that needs to be completed. Any work on receptacles, lights and more located on the inside or outside of your house will likely require an electrician to enter your home.

Ask electricians in your area to perform a video consultation instead of a traditional walk-through to assess the project. During the consultation, they should be able to tell you if they’ll need to enter your home or not. 

Can I use digital payments to pay for electrical and wiring repair?

These days, many electricians will accept digital payments for electrical work and wiring repair instead of traditional cash or check. The COVID-19 pandemic has helped speed up the adoption of platforms like PayPal, Zelle, Square Cash, Venmo, Google Pay and others as a means of complying with social distancing guidelines.

As you search for electricians online, ask whether they’ll accept digital payment and set up a strategy for staying safe.
