Customer Review!

"After getting a couple of estimates from electricians, Lee came out to assess our electrical issues. He diagnosed our problems, solved them, and offered some advice of what we needed to do instead of having someone come in and overcharge us for unnecessary solutions. He saved us from spending over $200 in work as estimated by others. He worked on and educated us for free on grounding a circuit that others would bill for. Lee is a very honest, trusting, practical, and friendly businessman. He is especially appreciative of helping out his military clients. We would definitely give him and his business a call for our future electrical needs."

How Using an Electrician Is an Essential Part of Home Maintenance

There are certain odd jobs and maintenance tasks that need doing around the home that can be easily completed, even if you are not entirely sure of what to do at first. Electrical work, however, falls firmly out of this area and it is vitally important that solving any electrical problems you may have is not attempted by anyone who is unqualified, or uninsured.
In a world where searching videos on the internet can provide you with step by step guides to completing almost any task, it may be tempting to take the do-it-yourself approach and, while this may work in other areas, it is strongly advised against for electrical issues.
Safety concerns
The main issue with trying to fix an electrical problem yourself is a safety one, and it only takes one slight lapse of judgement, or mistake and you could up electrocuting yourself.
Even if you succeed in not harming yourself, you may end up short circuiting, blowing the fuse or other potential problems, which can end up actually making things far worse than before you started.
Electrical systems are often set up in dissimilar ways, or wired differently, so even if you are following instructions to the letter, there is still a chance that something may go wrong. You can't put a price on your health, so don't consider doing any of the work yourself and instead hire a qualified electrician to do it for you.
Hiring professional maintenance
Whether you are a domestic homeowner, or working on behalf of a business or organization, it makes sense to have a qualified electrician survey your premises for outstanding problems on a regular basis.
Safety is the number one concern, so make it part of your home or work maintenance plan and you can sleep safer at night knowing you have taken all the recommended steps and electrical precautions.
Preventative work
As well as giving your house the once over, an electrician will also be able to offer preventative measures to limit any possible problems in the future. This may include pointing out any potential fire risks in your home, such as flammable objects near plug sockets.
An electrician can also provide useful suggestions about how to avoid common electrical problems in your house, such as electrical items short circuiting.
Research and referrals
You may find an inexperienced electrician charging a notably cheaper rate than his competitors and it may seem too good to be true, so tread carefully. Even if the cheap electrician is fully qualified and insured, he may lack the experience, so it could end up taking him twice the time do the same job, which would actually leave you out of pocket.
Where possible, try to enlist the help of someone who has been personally referred to you by someone that you know, or failing that try to seek third party reviews to back up their quality of work, as this will give you the best chance of finding a reliable and professional electricia
