When you need electrical work done on your residential property, the only person who should touch it is a licensed electrician. Of course, we understand that there are plenty temptations to pursue alternatives.
The average person, whether they fall into the residential client categories, is typically under the impression that hiring an electrician is too expensive. As a result, they will try to fix or install their own wiring themselves. And if they aren’t confident in their ability to do it themselves, they will choose to hire an unlicensed electrical contractor offering them a low price.
Now, we understand why a home owner would always be interested in saving money, but when you consider the risks involved in doing it yourself or hiring an unlicensed electrician, is the low price really worth the risk? One of the first rules of gambling is never take a risk you can’t afford to lose. And we are willing to bet that your residential property isn’t something you can afford to lose. But you need to be prepared for that possibility whenever you are led astray by the promise of lower prices.
If something goes wrong with your DIY electrical project, there is a high probability of injury or damage to your property. And you can bet that your insurance company won’t be too keen to pick up the bill when they find out the damage to your building and to yourself was completely self-inflicted and avoidable. So, if you like the price tag of doing it yourself, factor in hospital bills, the cost of fire restoration services and more before you go through with it.
Furthermore, an unlicensed electrician doesn’t have a license for a reason. Getting your electrical license is more than memorizing facts and passing an exam. It holds the electrician responsible and liable to penalties in the event of illegal, immoral or incompetent actions. Those who fail to obtain a license are denied for a good reason. Do you really want them working on your home?
