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.

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.

Jeff walked into a dangerous electrical situation that was left by the electrician Home Advisor had sent. In a short amount of time Jeff was able to uninstall electrical wires that could of started an electrical fire inside my walls. Jeff did it all in 2.5 hours vs the 6 plus hours (in 2 days) that Home Advisor sent. I give Jeff a 5 STAR rating for his outstanding job!!! Don't waste your time and money with other so called "Professionals". Get your job done right the first time with Jeff Brown.

Dennis is all of the above. In addition, he offers both a Senior and a Military Discount. I had an unusual problem with a receptacle dead circuit. All was good until he did a continuity check on the wire between two receptacles and found an open neutral (white) wire. He crawled up in the attic and replaced the wire in this June heat. We had plenty of ice water! I would recommend him to anybody that wants fair and honest work! I had hired a previous electrician who said he had fixed the problem, and he 'scooted' out of here with a $180 check in his hand! Nope, not fixed. and how could it be?!
