Finding the Right Electrician
Poor wiring is a leading cause of fires, and we’re all aware of the dangers. Therefore, be sure to study all of your options carefully before deciding on an electrician to hire.
Licensing and Insurance Coverage
First off, check whether the electrician you may be eyeing is licensed. This is your assurance that the contractor has completed all state-required courses and practical work that allow him to do his job correctly and safely. If they tell you they’re licensed, ask for proof, and make sure it’s current and cover the type of electrical work you need. Remember that some electrical licenses have restrictions. At the same time, see to it that the electrician is covered by workman’s compensation and liability coverage. Again, if they say they’re covered, ask for proof. Ozen Electrique of Montreal is a licensed and insured contractor that can give you the security you need.
Instead of focusing on just one prospect, approach three different electricians and ask for quotes (you may end up confused if you consider more than three choices). The idea is to describe to them as carefully and accurately as possible the kind of work you need. They should give you a quote that comes complete with all the details, including a price breakdown. Once you have the quotes, sit down and make comparisons, and go for the one that matches your standards, needs and budget the most. If you’re in Montreal, you can approach Ozen Electrique and they will be more than glad to give you a quote.
Qualifications and Experience If only for the sake of your project, hire somebody you can be comfortable around. A professional electrician is also time-conscious and will call you if they know they will be late. With Ozen Electrique, professionalism is a given.
