With more than 11,000 electricians in the metroplex and more than 220 electricians in the Denton county area, it’s hard to know if you’ve picked the best electrician for a job.

Hiring a residential electrician to work in your home can also be nerve-wracking because you want to pick a company or contractor that will prioritize your safety. From rewiring to quick fixes, you deserve the best electrician in the area.

We’ve been in the business a long time, but you don’t have to use our services. Here’s how to find the best electrician near you – no matter who it is.

Find the Best Electrician Near Me

The best way to find residential electricians in your area is by word of mouth. Especially if you live in a tight-knit community, ask around to see who has done the best work on your block. Find a locally-owned business with an excellent reputation for the best customer service and low rates.

After you’ve narrowed down your search, feel free to ask the company you pick for references. It’s best to know what big jobs or reputation-making work the best electrician you can find has done!

It’s also necessary to do some checking up on a company or contractor once you have a name in mind. Ask for a copy of their license and feel free to make sure it’s legit. If you find anything suspicious, contact the Better Business Bureau and get some more information.

It’s also important to ask for their insurance information. Any electrician you work with must be fully insured, and they should have no issue sharing their information with you. It keeps you – and them – safe.

It’s OK to call their insurance provider to ask about their policies. If you have never worked with this company or contractor before, it’s on you to verify that they carry worker’s compensation insurance. Any reputable company will be fully insured.

Don’t Do It Yourself

In the world of YouTube and Pinterest, it can be tempting to try to make minor repairs yourself. No matter who you call, please use a qualified, licensed, and insured electrician to do any electrical work at your home.

Changing a light fixture or light switch can be done by those with some training and the right tools, but for anything more complicated, it’s best to work with a professional. Electrical fires or other expensive mishaps can end up costing you more. When in doubt – call a professional!

For those on a budget, don’t be afraid to try to negotiate rates with your local electrician. Ask for the lowest rate they can give, and ask about options for payment plans.
