There are so many people we have talked to that have had major issues with the electrician they hired to do work on their home or place of business here in the Capital Region. It is highly recommended you do your homework and identify a qualified, professional and licensed electrician in Albany to do the work you need completed.
Here are some suggestions to consider when looking for the right fit:
Make sure you check their licensing and insurance information. You never want to put yourself in a situation that you hire someone who is not licensed. It could wind up costing you a lot of money and potential legal action. A licensed electrician is bonded and will have an adequate amount of insurance. What this means for you is that if there were an issue, their insurance will cover them for damages and you will have the peace of mind you are looking for.
This one might surprise you but be sure to ask for a Journeyman card which will provide proof that they are licensed. You want to be sure they are qualified and adequately representing themselves. Further, you want to find out if they have reviews or testimonials of work they have previously done. This will give you a good idea if they do quality work. Referrals are virtually a guarantee of gaining your confidence.
We think, most importantly, that good communication is paramount. Be sure to ask questions about their skill set, their background, their areas of expertise. If they come across with confidence and are personable, you might just have a great electrician.
