A Myrtle Beach electrician is a specialist in the repair and wiring of the electrical components of your home or commercial property. Because you rarely need an electrician, you probably haven’t given thought about how to hire one. However, having a good electrician available when you need any repair or re-wiring is very important.
The Myrtle Beach real estate market has been great for purchasing a home and renovating it for resale or simply upgrading your existing living arrangements. Remodeling and renovations are areas where a good Myrtle Beach electrician is especially needed. There is nothing worse than settling into a new home or addition and realizing that the outlets are not in the right place or the wiring doesn’t work.
Some other areas where a good Myrtle Beach electrician comes in handy are:
- Ceiling Fan Installation
- Installation of outside security lights
- Running electrical wiring outside of your home for a pool or deck extension
- Extending your home by adding additional rooms
- Completion of a bonus room for a great billiard or game area
You should take the time to determine the scope of the work before calling an electrician. You will want to be as detailed as possible. Write down specifically what you need to have done, even include a rough drawing of what you have in mind. In some instances, minor repair work can be completed by someone with less experience like a handyman, but with major remodels, new construction or detailed repairs, you will want a skilled tradesperson. There is nothing more dangerous than improper wiring which can lead to fires which put you and your family at risk.
A great place to look for an electrician is through referrals. Ask around and check the internet to find a Myrtle Beach electrician in your area. Always ask for references and then take the time to call a few of the references. If you have the time, you may want to get estimates from more than one qualified electrician. Meet with each one and ask them about their experience and expertise. Go through the scope of the project with them and ask them if they have done a similar project in the past. Make sure they thoroughly understand what needs to be done and have them tell you how they plan to accomplish the job, how long it will take and the estimated cost.
Always hire a Myrtle Beach electrician that is licensed and insured. You will want to verify and make sure that all documents are current before they start the job. With today’s unemployment rate being high, many inexperienced people are simply adding a sign to their truck and claiming to be a licensed electrician. If an electrician cannot provide you with proof of insurance and proper license, don’t hire them! There is too much at stake for your family’s safety.
Don’t hesitate to ask about their experience level. A Myrtle Beach electrical contractor that has been in business for a few years is usually a better choice than a company that is just starting. It can be tempting to go with a new business when they offer a steep discount just to get established but you may pay for their mistakes down the road. Remember to check references and check them out. Myrtle Beach electricians with a happy customer base will most likely do a good job for you also.
If you are getting more than one estimate for the job, you will not only want to choose the Myrtle Beach electrician with the best combination of experience and price, but also someone with whom you are comfortable. For a large project, you will want to have the project specifications in writing. These specifications should include the details of the project, time for completing the project and the costs. This will give you a reference point if there are problems during the project.
