Spring is in the air, and that means many people are thinking about home improvements. And with that comes hiring professionals to help – like an electrical contractor.
So, what exactly is an electrical contractor and why do you need one? It’s a good question, and one you should ask yourself before starting the home renovation or improvement process.
Simply put, an electrical contractor is a person who has extensive training and experience in the installation and maintenance of electrical systems, equipment and components.
But what does that mean? In a nutshell, on any construction project, you are likely to find an electrical contractor because it is that important!
It’s important to note: An electrical contractor is different than an electrician. How so? An EC works with builders and construction crews while a home or building is being constructed. They do budgeting, project management and help keep a project moving along. It’s more of a managerial and financial job, where as an electrician does the actual work: Wiring, installation, maintenance, repair and more. Electricians are tradespeople.
Electrical contractors hire electricians and supervise them on the job.
It’s an important distinction, and something to note. They can be a true partner in your project, big or small and help ensure it goes smoothly and as expected.
