In our rehabs, we always choose a licensed electrician. The consequences that come with poor electrical work are nothing more devastating than having your home burn down and the insurance company refusing to pay because you used an unlicensed electrician! We finally finished our electrical work in our Dove Trail Dallas property and very happy with it.
3 Major advantages of hiring a licensed electrician are:
– Being licensed means that an exam has been passed and the necessary qualifications to do the work is guaranteed.
– Most electrical work needs to be done with a permit. This means that liability insurance and homeowner’s insurance are more likely to pay out in the event that something bad happens on the job or after a job has been done. Cities just don’t hand out permits to unlicensed electricians.
– Being licensed means that the electrician will work according to the safety guidelines stipulated by the National Electrical Code.
Remember, it’s ALWAYS better to be safe than sorry.
