Never Take Shortcuts When it Comes to Electrical in Your Kansas City New Home Construction

At Teague Electric, we know that it isn’t uncommon when building a new home for homeowners to try to cut a few corners here and there in an effort to save money. Of course, no one wants to spend more than is absolutely necessary, but when you are talking about wiring, electrical outlets, switches, amperage, and other things to do with electricity, taking shortcuts is something you want to avoid. Electricity is dangerous, not only for those who take do-it-yourself projects beyond what is safe, but even when hiring someone to wire your new home if the company doesn’t practice good principles. Unless an electrician is licensed, skilled, and highly trained, don’t let him/her anywhere near your new home construction!

Why is it so important to hire a licensed residential electrical contractor when building your Kansas City home? A license means a lot more than a piece of paper. Those who are licensed have passed rigorous tests of their knowledge regarding not only electrical wiring and components, but legal codes, safety rules and regulations, and more. In addition, having a licensed professional take care of all of the electrical aspects of your new home construction protects not only the electrician, but you if something should go wrong.

Ultimately, a licensed electrician is insured and bonded; therefore, your project will be completed in compliance with all rules and regulations, and you will be covered by the company’s insurance should any damage occur. When you hire electrical contractors who are not licensed, you take a huge risk! Would you hire a shade-tree mechanic to work on your brand new car? Your home is a huge investment, so don’t risk its safety or that of your family to fire or other potentially dangerous issues.

When building a new home, you have a thousand things to think about and a hundred decisions to make – why worry about electrical wiring and other electric issues, when you can enjoy peace of mind? You have decisions to make about color schemes, materials for counter tops, flooring, cabinets, kitchen and bath fixtures, appliances, and so much more. Although electricity is something we all use every day and don’t know how we would live without, it’s something that you, as a new homeowner, should not have to think about.

At Teague Electric, we provide whole-house wiring, wiring for home entertainment systems including audio/visual components, installation of buried electrical cables for homeowners who prefer a bit more stability in case of storms, generators, surge protection, installation of security systems, and more. While we don’t want to “toot our own horn” as they say, when you put your new home construction in our hands, you can rest assured the job will be done right the first time. Give us a call today!
