Whether you are building a new home, starting a renovation project, or need help fixing a faulty electrical component in your house, hiring the right local electrician can make all the difference for your project. But how do you ensure that you are making the right choice for electrification? While there are many options for master electricians in the area, not all companies should be considered equally qualified. With more than 17 years of industry experience, King Electric, LLC has helped many homeowners easily complete their electrical projects. Keep reading to learn more about the top four traits when choosing your contractor.
Top four traits to look for when hiring an electrical contractor
1. Good reputation
Like every other home service company, you should always factor in the reputation of your electrician before hiring them for your project. An excellent place to start is by looking at the recent reviews on their Google Business Profile page or talking to current customers yourself. Electricians will also have references available for you to review, which can simplify your search. Do your research before making any final decisions since this will pay off in the long run with the quality of electrical service provided.
2. Years of experience
Electrical work can be dangerous if you do not know what you are doing. For this reason, choosing a contractor with the knowledge base to complete your project safely is important. Usually, more years of experience in the industry is a good indication that the business will do a decent job on your project too. While this is a good indicator, don’t rely on experience alone to make your decision. Just like a “C” student still gets a degree, a bad electrical contractor can still run a business. Make sure that the years of experience correlate to good experiences for customers.
3. Attention to detail
When hiring an electrician, attention to detail matters more than meets the eye. Since electric work can present many safety issues if not worked on correctly, this is not something you want to do poorly. A good residential electrical contractor will ensure that all work has been completed in compliance with safety regulations. In addition to safety compliance, a reputable electrical company will also be able to hide wires and make the work done look aesthetically pleasing. Make sure to ask questions about the attention to detail for the company you are considering for your project to ensure that the job is done right the first time.
4. Qmerit certified partner
Only a select amount of electricians are recognized as Qmerit certified partners, making this qualification a must when searching for the best local contractor. As a symbolic representation of excellence, Qmerit certified partners must be up to date on all state and local regulations, licenses, background checks, fully insured, trained on the latest technology, and compliant with all worker’s compensation guidelines. Working with these contractors ensures you will receive the best quality work in the electrification industry.

In the meantime, look at this 5-star review from Paul S. to help make your decision easier.
“Used King Electric LLC through our warranty company. Our fan had stopped working, I called our warranty company, and they got the ball rolling to have King Electric diagnose the problem. A time was scheduled, and the tech called to advise what time he would be at our residence.
The technician (Mr. Flores) diagnosed the problem, contacted our warranty company and his office, and said to go ahead and install the new fan that we had. Mr. Flores did an amazing job. He was very nice and considerate and very professional.
Thank you again for the amazing job!”
