How Can I Check My Electrician’s Credentials?

When it comes to electrical work, safety should be your top priority. That’s why it’s essential to hire a qualified and reputable electrician for any electrical job. All licensed electricians should have the documentation to back it up, so here’s how you can check if their qualifications are legitimate.

4 Ways You Can Verify an Electrical Contractor’s Credentials & Experience

  • Ask to see their license and insurance: Any reputable electrician should be able to provide you with their license and insurance documents upon request. These documents prove that they have met the requirements to work as an electrician and are insured in case of any accidents or damages during the job.
  • Check with your local licensing board or building department to verify their license: Different provinces in Canada have different licensing requirements for electricians. Check with your local licensing board or building department to ensure that your electrician has a valid license to work in your area.
  • Ask for references from past clients: A qualified electrician should have no problem providing you with references from past clients. Contact these references to get an idea of the electrician’s work quality, reliability, and professionalism.
  • Check online reviews and ratings: Check out online reviews and ratings on sites like Google and HomeStars. These reviews can give you an idea of the electrician’s reputation and work quality.
