The Pitfalls of Using An Unlicensed Electrical Contractor

Meeting Local Municipal Code Provisions

When considering new bathroom construction or a bath remodeling project, one of the most important aspects is that the electrical portion of the work meets the code.

While many homeowners do some of the electrical work themselves, it is wise to enlist the services of a licensed electrical contractor. Improper installation can wreak havoc on your property with fire or injury.

Electrical wiring, circuit boxes, and fixtures can represent a severe hazard if not properly assembled and installed so it is extremely important to select a qualified electrical contractor for your next renovation project.

Just so that you are aware, most local building authorities require that even residential electrical wiring meet local municipal code provisions.

An inspection of your electrical wiring must be performed upon completion of construction work before your bathroom drywall is installed, and a “certificate of inspection” provided by the inspector or licensed electrician should be acquired before you proceed further.

So the question still remains, how do you find the right contractor. Here is a short list you can use when hiring an electrical contractor, just make sure they meet these guidelines: One of the first things that your electrical contractor should do is provide a written quote for the price of the work they will be doing so if there is any discrepancy with the final price you can refer back to the written binding contract.

This one should go without saying, the proof is in pudding. Your contractor should provide references of completed projects, and proof of current liability insurance. If he or she refuses to do so then thank them for their time and quickly walk away.
