Residential, commercial and industrial spaces require electrical renovations and installations. Electrical contractors can assist clients with a wide range of electrical services, from small projects to large scale construction. By delivering energy-efficient solutions, they may assist their clients in saving money on their energy expenses.

To improve the safety of their client’s homes and businesses, you can hire a professional electrical contractor. They ensure that their electrical systems are up to code and safe to use so that clients can have peace of mind.

If you’re looking for electrical services, here’s a list of the top five things to look for in an electrical contractor. 

1. They are licensed with ESA/ECRA 
Before hiring someone to fix electrical issues, it is important to ensure that they are licensed by the Electrical Safety Authority (ESA) and Electronic Commerce Research and Applications (ECRA). This would mean that their work is up to the market standards. 

2. They must possess WSIB insurance
Workplace Safety and Insurance Board (WSIB) insurance covers any type of accident or injuries that occur during the project. This will guarantee your protection and that of the electrical contractor against any danger.

3. Their apprentices should be registered
If the electrical contractor has apprentices working for them, those apprentices must be registered with the province. This shows that they are following the province’s rules and regulations.

4. They need to provide a detailed quotation
Request a thorough price quote that includes a price break-up to maintain transparency to keep things clear. This can also help you evaluate their work and check if they offer competitive prices.

5. They should have a local reputation
Generally, people seek such services within their respective localities. You can look out for someone who has an excellent local reputation as such contractors work to maintain their clientage by offering quality services.
