Electrical and Wiring Repair

  • 2 hires on Thumbtack
  • Serves Houston, TX
We first worked with Barry in 2010 on remodeling an office space. Even though his quote wasn't the lowest, we thought he is a genuine person & awarded the work to him. It took about two months to finish the job and it was done wonderfully nice & my clients were very impressed with the finished product. Based on that experience, we worked with him on my home kitchen remodel as well. Recently we bought an old building for my wife's spa business & Barry did the complete remodel of that space. Total three months work & I would say job very well done. It was very difficult job to remodel the 50-60 yr old building but thay managed it very well. Barry & his team is very professional and the most I like about his work style is 'never say no' attitude. We had several changes to the original design & almost every day we wanted something different than the plan but he always came up with new & better solutions. For us, Barry is our 'go to guy' if we need anything around the property. I highly recommend his company for any construction work.See more

Lighting Installation, Switch and Outlet Installation

  • 14 hires on Thumbtack
  • Serves Houston, TX
Tile Installation and Replacement These guys are top notch! We're at the tail end of a 7 month renovation/addition project and have met a number of contractors during the process. Many companies and subs leave a lot to be desired but Leveltx is a breath of fresh air at a time when Houston really needs it. We were very behind schedule and needed help with several projects (tile/trim/closets/etc) so they brought the manpower and expertise to get it done quickly. Any changes or concerns we had were quickly addressed and they have worked tirelessly to make sure we are completely satisfied. The whole company goes above and beyond from their estimators and supervisors to the guys performing the work. Their pricing is very competitive so overall value can't be beat. I'm happy we found them and look forward to the next project. Thanks again fellas!See more

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

How do I hire the best electrician in Houston?

Reading reviews and ratings, looking at past project photos and getting several references is a great way to ensure you’re hiring the best electrician. You can find a list of the best electricians in Houston by going online. This allows you to view their ratings and read customer reviews to see what people in Houston think of the pro’s electrical work. 

Also, look at the electrician's profiles to learn more about their specialty, experience and credentials. If you can’t find information about their credentials on their profiles, visit the Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation website to see if their license is active.

Once you've found a few electricians you may want to hire, ask all of them for a free estimate so you can make an informed decision.

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.

Hung chandelier. The light worked briefly then stopped working. He then said that I would need to hire an electrician to fix wiring in switch. I thought he was an electrician! Insisted that I pay him the full amount, even though I do not have a working light fixture. He was arrogant too. I will not be hiring him again to do anything.
