PITTSBURGH, PA, March 21, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ -- The Pittsburgh electricians at CW Electrical remind customers that their team is fully licensed and insured. When hiring any contractor for an installation or service request, the first thing you should verify is whether they have this documentation available.
The Importance of Using a Licensed Electrician
It can be tempting to hire someone who offers lower rates despite being uninsured and lacking professional certification, but there is a negative side to everything. What are the risks of paying a contractor who does not have workers' compensation or liability insurance, especially if they have employees working for them?
Pennsylvania state law requires employers to carry adequate coverage for all staff, but if they don't, you could be held liable for the medical expenses if an electrician working in this capacity was to get injured on your property. Furthermore, a vast majority of "on the side" handyman are not properly trained to work around electrical wiring or equipment.
The electrical outlet wiring professionals says you could wind up paying more by using someone who is not licensed. In order to be knowledgeable and up-to-date on electrical safety codes, which are always changing, electricians must be continually trained through accredited courses. Chances are an unlicensed contractor will not have this skill set. If they fail to do to the job properly, you may need to contact a qualified electrician in Pennsylvania to right their wrongs.
According to Chris Walton, Owner of CW Electrical, "All of our staff members have undergone extensive electrical training and certification, so you know the job is going to get done right the first time."
