A Phoenix licensed electrician is the only electrical contractor you should call for residential or commercial electrical repair. However, there’s more accreditation and certification your local electrical maintenance and repair company should have to prove competency and accountability.
Why Choose a Phoenix Licensed Electrician?
You can’t work as an electrical contractor in Arizona without a license. But that doesn’t stop normally logical property owners from hiring their neighbor’s uncle. After all, he works cheap.
Probably the most important reason to choose a Phoenix licensed electrician is liability. Your insurance company may refuse to pay claims for damages resulting from DIY (do-it-yourself) or your neighbor’s uncle’s electrical wiring.
What Does It Mean if an Electrical Contractor is ‘Bonded?’
When you request multiple quotes (a good idea) and one company is much lower than the others, look before you leap. The underpriced may not be bonded.
“Bonded” means the company has a surety bond in place. A surety bond tells you that this licensed electrician is so confident in their work they’re willing to guarantee your project. It’s a promise to satisfactorily complete the job. It’s also a backed-up commitment to follow the regulations governing a Phoenix licensed electrician.
Ask About Insurance
What if your Phoenix-area contractor’s employee is injured while working inside your home or business? What if you or a loved one is injured? Do you have recourse if the contractor damages furniture or flooring?
Always ask about insurance. Your Phoenix licensed electrician should have two types of insurance: worker’s compensation and a general liability insurance policy.
After you have received a copy of the insurance, call the insurance company to verify your electrician’s insurance is up-to-date. If you don’t and you have damages… One Realtor put it bluntly: “You are probably screwed and will have to chase them through the courts to get compensation.”
How to Find a Bonded, Insured Phoenix Licensed Electrician
You can just ask electrical contractors if their company is licensed, bonded, and insured. But then you need to follow-up. Ask to see copies of all three before any work begins.
