Attention Milwaukee: Electricians and Handymen are NOT the Same!
Milwaukee electricians have an important message for local residential and commercial customers: electricians and handymen are NOT the same!
Too often, we’re called into a home or business to fix electric problems that are caused by shoddy work. And oftentimes, this shoddy work is done by a well-meaning but unqualified handyman. And though we understand that customers often have a relationship with somebody who performs all sorts of maintenance on their properties, when it comes to electric work, you should NEVER use someone who’s not a fully licensed electrician.
Risks of Using Unqualified Workers
No matter how well a handyman knows your home, without the proper training and certifications, he’s not equipped to work on your electrical system. Shoddy electrical work can cause all sorts of highly dangerous problems, from crossed wires that can cause fires to exposed wires that can cause electrical shocks. And that’s not even considering the less hazardous but annoying inconvenience of blow fuses and tripped breakers. Moreover, if the electric system in your home isn’t up to code, you can be forced by the municipality to have it completely redone to meet local regulations. And that’s not only inconvenient, it’s also costly.
The Value of Hiring a Qualified Electrician
A fully qualified and properly licensed electrician, on the other hand, can be a valuable partner in the endeavor to keep your home or business safe and in good shape. With years of training and ongoing education, he’ll know exactly how to keep your home’s electrical system up to code.
A licensed electrician can help you with all sorts of issues, from rewiring and adding power points to installing exterior lighting and planning the power supply for a computer room. What’s more, if you’re planning to remodel or even start new construction, bringing your electrician in early in the process can ensure you get the electric system that meets your functional and design needs.
Last, but certainly not least, a licensed electrician will be properly insured so that you’re protected in the event of any damages. So be smart and ALWAYS hire an electrician to do electric work on your property!
