How to Find the Right St Petersburg Electrical Contractor

It’s not something you think about every day, but if you’re a homeowner you’re probably going to require the help of an electrician. The electric power that runs our homes with such convenience is a necessary part of our everyday lives. Some homeowners are quite handy at taking care of the small projects, such as replacing an old ceiling light fixture or rewiring a wall receptacle. Others have a healthy fear of anything that involves electrical repairs or upgrades; no matter how minor the problem, it is best left in the capable hands of a reliable St Petersburg electrician.

It shouldn’t be hard to find an electrician. Locating the one that you believe is right for your project might not be quite as easy.

Where to Find a Licensed St Petersburg Electrician

Friends, family and people you work with are all good places to start when asking for recommendations. If anyone has hired a St Petersburg electrician in the past, they can possibly give you some good insight. If they weren’t happy with the work, they can tell you why. If they’ve had a good experience they’ll most likely be happy to share the contact information of the St Petersburg electrician with you. You’ll find that people are always eager to talk about good service. You'll find that we have a good reputation and take pride in our work.

Once you feel you’ve found a St Petersburg electrician that might be right for your project, you’ll want to check his background. Any complaints should be on file with the Better Business Bureau. Should you find any complaints, you need to ask for details and learn how any complaints were resolved. Even a very reputable St Petersburg electrician can get a complaint, but what you need to find out is how they handled it. If you find several complaints against any electrician you should definitely reconsider doing business with him.

Requesting a Bid from a St Petersburg Electrician

Once you’ve decided on three or four electricians that you feel are right for the job, you then need to set up an interview so you can go over your project with them. Ask about experience; we'll be happy to explain to you how a St Petersburg electrician can meet your needs. We offer a quality of service that you will not find elsewhere. After the project is complete, you'll be happy we sent an expert St Petersburg electrician.

Do a walk through with each electrician that you are considering and have them explain in detail what they can do for you and how they would complete the job. Talk about what you want to have done and pinpoint any specific concerns you feel are important. By talking with each St Petersburg electrician you will have an idea of how well you’ll work together. If you don’t feel comfortable with a certain electrician, just move to the next one. The electrician you choose is going to be responsible for the safety of your home so he needs to be someone you trust.

Get an estimated time for the completion of your project along with the price. Naturally you can’t get an exact amount until the St Petersburg electrician can prepare a written quote. Provide each electrician with a list of the things you want them to include in their bid. The bids should include the cost of parts and labor and a detailed explanation of what the project involves. Payment options should also be included. If your project is small, you’ll usually be expected to pay in full once the project is completed, while longer more involved projects, may allow for installment payments over the course of the entire job. You also want to make sure you receive a date for completion with each bid.

Selecting the Best St Petersburg Electrician

You’ll then need to compare the bid from each St Petersburg electrician with the others you have received. If you get an extremely low bid that seems too good to be true, you need to be careful. While a low bid can be legitimate, if it’s way below the others you need to question why. When it comes to your home’s electrical system you don’t want to be cutting corners. Should the bid really interest you, ask the electrician that submitted the bid why it is so low. When deciding on which St Petersburg electrician to hire, it’s about more than choosing the bid that’s the lowest in terms of cost but also the one that is going to be the best for your specific project.

When choosing the best St Petersburg electrician, there’s more involved than just your budget. Whenever dealing with electricity, the safety of your family needs to come first. You should choose the St Petersburg electrician that seems the most conscientious about your project and the one you feel you can rely on to do the job right. The life of your home relies on the dependability of the St Petersburg electrician that handles your project.

I first hired Dennis Allen as an electrician when our insurance company said we needed to completely rewire our home or face the loss of our policy, as our house is 100 years old and had most of the original wiring. I asked several other electrical contractors to look at the job and give us a quote. They all pretty much described many holes drilled throughout our first floor ceiling through which they would run the wiring. Then, Dennis was recommended by a neighbor as a professional who took great pride in his work. He took the job as a challenge and ended up doing the work. Unbelievably, he drilled only one small hole which was not noticeable in one edge of the ceiling. He and his two extremely capable associates, Bob and Jess, were total professionals, neat, and a pleasure to have in my home. Their work was flawless. I have recommended them many times to friends, and they have been my electricians ever since.

In 1999, Dennis Allen replaced a dangerously obsolete electrical service for my newly purchased fixer-upper home. The work was done exceptionally well. Since then, Dennis Allen's company has been my electrician for all personal and contractor requirements. Due to work quality, employee attitude, reasonable pricing, and integrity, I recommend him without question.

I have known and done electrical business with Dennis Allen for about 20 years. He has accomplished extensive work for me at my home and at personal rental properties. He has also successfully worked for my family members. As a Realtor, I have referred him to many real estate customers over the years. I have never heard of any negative feedback from those referrals but only positive comments like, "He is fast," "Knows what he is doing," and "Dennis is punctual, too." Dennis is easy to communicate with, returns calls immediately, and I do not have to wait for information or an appointment date and time. You can count on Dennis! I highly recommend Dennis Allen for anything he undertakes to do.
