Are you a Kansas City homeowner in need of a bit of “tweaking” for new appliances, or who is considering a complete rewiring in an older home? Choosing the right residential electrical services is critical when it comes to something as important as the safety of your home and family. You may have even considered doing it yourself if it is a small job, but unless you are a trained and experienced electrician, a do-it-yourself approach can end in serious injury – or even worse. At Teague Electric, we bring more than 35 years of experience to the table for residential customers in the Kansas City Metro area. We want you to know that any home project involving electricity is not for amateurs!
So, how can you make certain that you choose the best residential electrical services contractor? Here are a few tips.
Check to ensure the contractor is licensed. It’s easy for someone to SAY they’re licensed, but how do you know for sure? Your home and the safety of your family are paramount, so never hesitate to check out your electrical contractor; in fact, ask to see his/her credentials.
Investigate beforehand to learn of reputable licensed electricians in the area. Even today, in a world that’s high tech, word of mouth is one of the best indicators of a company’s reputation and trustworthiness. You should be skeptical about calling the first residential electrical services company you come to in the Yellow Pages or on the web. Ask around, look for reviews online. Friends, family, and co-workers will be happy to tell you who they use and trust for electrical projects.
Ask for a quote before any work begins. What you don’t want is an unexpected (and unpleasant) surprise after the work is performed. Most professional electric contractors will initially inspect your home or the scope of the project to determine what is involved in terms of work, materials, time, and labor. If there are any serious issues with your electrical wiring system, your contractor should make you aware of it immediately. Get a quote for the full scope of the project before you allow work to begin.
Compare. There are plenty of Kansas City residential electrical services in the area, so choosing can be difficult. Compare the reputation, rates, and services of contractors – and be sure that you are comparing honest, reputable contractors. You may get a cheaper rate from a dishonest contractor, so beware of choosing a company based solely on the lowest bid. You want a professional job, performed by trained, experienced electricians who are dedicated to a quality job and a safe, functional home for your family.
