Remember, electrical wiring is not a hobby! Many of the serious problems we see are code violations with wiring installed by a “do it yourselfer” or homeowner with some advice from “the guy at the hardware store” or a handyman. These problems often come to light when a property is being sold and a real estate inspector requires expensive repairs. They can also be a fire, safety, or electrocution hazard.
You should always hire a licensed electrical contractor for your safety. Also, keep in mind that price should not always be the determining factor when you choose a contractor. Instead, choose a contractor with worker’s compensation and liability insurance. The company should have employees who are trained, drug tested and background checked. Also, make sure the contractor will warranty their work and will be there when you need them. Keep in mind when you shop for price, you may have to pay twice. You can always count on C & T Electric.
