How to choose a Qualified Electrical contractor.
If you have an electrical problem at home is can be tempting to have a go at repairing it yourself to save the cost of hiring a pro.
But electrical work in and around the home can be very dangerous and if a person does not know what they are doing it can result in someone having a serious injury and in severe cases the cause of death.
This is why it is wise to hire a qualified electrical contractor to complete the job safely a with a guarantee at the end.
Word of mouth is one of the most common ways to find a good electrical contractor. If you have not found one through this method, you can try a simple search online. You should include your area or postcode in the search for best results. For instance, you can type in something like qualified electrician in London.
Everyone has a budget but it is not always the best option to go with the cheapest option. You can compare different prices to see what suits you best, don’t ever feel pressured by an individual and get a written quotation beforehand. This will ensure that you are not charged extra after work has been done.
The person should have the required documents to prove that he or she is competent to do the job in question. In the UK it is a legal requirement to be approved by the National Inspection Council for Electrical Installation Contractors (NICEIC). This is a body that regulates all electricians and the electrician will be assessed by an assessor and passed to complete work on domestic and business premises.
You can ask to see any relevant paperwork and are quite entitled to ask to see the person’s qualifications. The person in question will not mind at all if they are all above board and legal.
