At Miami Electric Masters, we are qualified, licensed electricians with expert training in electrical work—including wiring, installations, repairs, inspections, and much more. In this article, our team of top-rated electricians will share our seven most important questions that you should ask your electrician before hiring them for any task in your home, in order to keep it safe avoid unnecessary additional costs or future repairs.

1. Are you a licensed technician?

As basic or obvious a question as it may seembut it’s highly important to get a straight and honest answer about licensing from your electricianAsk for verification of your electrician’s licensing information and refuse to contact them if they can’t produce proof of certification.

2. Do you have insurance?

No matter how careful they are while doing the job, things can unexpectedly go wrong. In order to protect yourself financially, it is necessary to hire a contractor that is fully insured so you can have peace of mind.

3. Do you have references?

If you’re in the dark when it comes to electrical services, repairs, or installation, it can make things difficult when evaluating an electrician’s qualifications or expertise regarding electrical workReferences from people you know or online reviews from past jobs will give you an idea on the quality of work they provide and the satisfaction of their former customers.

4. What do you specialize in?

Just like any other type of professionals, electricians specialize in one area or another. By asking for their area of specialty, you will be able to choose the professional that’s best suited for the services you require.

5. What types of training or relevant experiences do you have?

If you want quality service, ensure that the technician that you will hire has vast experience in the field and is formally trained. Ideally, hire a technician with a minimum of three years of experience—the rule for this trade is that the longer you’ve worked as an electrician, the better you know the ins and outs of the job.

6. Does your service come with a warranty?

Reliable technicians provide a labor warranty which you can utilize in the unlikely event that there is an issue with the work they performed. Others even assume responsibility for the devices and fixtures they purchase for you while on the job.

7. What does your price quote include?

In order to avoid future disagreements and unexpected costs, clarify what the price estimate covers and request a cost breakdown analysis of the work to be done. Additionally, it is strongly recommended to have everything written out in a contract so that there is legal protection for both parties.
