Highly rated electrician Dave Hanley of DPH Electric recently offered his tips for hiring an electrician.

What should homeowners be asking an electrician before hiring?

Hanley: I would strongly suggest that they ask for both licensing and references, especially if they are getting work done through a general contractor.

Even though the general contractor might have good ratings on Angie's List, that doesn't mean that they employ licensed professionals (i.e. electricians and plumbers). Many general contractors offer lower bids because they use their handymen to do the electric and plumbing, and thus have a lower cost than those using licensed help.
