How do you pick one quality certified electrician out from a crowd? You might ask for recommendations from friends and family. It’s also wise to check out the company on Angie’s List and the Better Business Bureau. Then you can read the testimonials and find out what other customers have experienced.
While all these techniques are helpful, one of the best ways to find a trustworthy Dallas electrician is to discover what certification and insurance they have compared to what is actually required to get the job done. Far too many homeowners forget to look into certifications and credentials, and end up hiring a Dallas electrician without the proper licenses. Here’s what to look for to ensure you’ve found a certified electrician.
- Certification status: Ask the lead technician on a job to show you his state electrician’s license. He should be able to pull a card out of his wallet and show you. The highest certification is “master electrician.” At the very least, though, the lead technician should be a “journeyman.” An “apprentice” should never lead a service call or be the one who makes job estimates.
- Insurance: Accidents happen, far and few between but for your protection you should ask for proof of insurance. The state of Texas requires minimum insurance coverage of $250,000, but that might not be enough to cover the cost of damages to your home if something goes wrong. A certified electrician should only work in locations their insurance coverage is adequate to cover.
- City license: Across the state of Texas, electricians are required to have a state license first then the city they are operating in second.. As a resident in the Dallas/Fort Worth area, you want a Dallas electrician with the proper licensing.
