I trusted this company to get the job done right the first time. We had an issue with our lawn back in June, and the people that came out made it worse. After that, we sent in a request on Thumbtack for two landscapers. Bruce came in July with his company and laid down new sod. As instructed to do, my husband and I busted our tails for two weeks watering our lawn every 45 minutes - over 5500 sq. ft. After two weeks of watering, my husband and I noticed there were bare spots in the areas on the side of our house, which was very upsetting. The rest of the lawn looked good. After making attempts to call the company back, Mr. Bruce came back and said he would replace the bad sod, but would not fix the bad spots on the side yard because it wasn't his fault. I went to my lawyer and he told me to get a second opinion, so I did and I was told that Mr. Bruce did not put down enough topsoil, and that's why we were having the bare spot. My lawyer sent me a letter so I could prove that this was done. Mr. Bruce lied to my lawyer, saying that he could fix the problem, but we would have to pay him $400 even though we already paid him in full for the job, and that we declined to do so. He never told us that. If I had known all this would have happened I would have gone with another professional. He still has not fixed the problem.See more

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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.

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.

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.

Excellent work. I will call on Harold to hook me up next time I need more done. He is a great electrician! Fairly priced and highly recommended.

He responded quickly, arrived early and completed the installation of an exterior 50 amp outlet for an RV in about 2 hours. Worked fast and efficiently and left the work area clean. I would recommend Miller Trades to anyone in the Summerville area needing a good electrician.

Roger was awesome to work with! He responded to my thumbtack request within minutes and was there the next day, he even came early. The job was done quickly, accurately, and cleanly. It was sort of an emergency so to have him come by and complete it all as imagined within a day was very impressive and a huge relief. Not to mention he’s very reasonably priced and doesn’t add any extra fees in from his quote. We found our electrician moving forward 👌🏼
