Statistics show that one of the major causes of residential fires in Canada is electrical equipment. It's not a pleasant experience to go into your living room and discover that an electrical short has sent big black streaks up your wall – and that's the best-case scenario. If electrical work isn't done right, it can be very dangerous.
When you need electrical work done on your home, you need to make sure it's done right. In fact, it's imperative that you do. That means that unless you're a licensed professional electrician, you should call one.
If you do electrical work by yourself and you don't know what you're doing - even, if you think you do - you may save a little cash in the short run, but in the long run you'll lose money and endanger lives. Not only do you run the risk of electrocution while you're attempting to do the work, but you're also not likely to do the work properly. Shoddy electrical work can lead to shorts, fires, and unnecessary loss of lives and property.
Luckily, you have a place at your fingertips where you can find a licensed electrician in your area easily and quickly. On HandyCanadian.com, we have an extensive database of licensed, professional electricians who are waiting to bid on your project and compete for your business. These licensed contractors are from all over the country, both in urban centres and in outlying areas, so it's easy to find someone in your area.
The way it works on HandyCanadian.com is that licensed contractors post their profiles from all over the country and you can search through the database of postings. The information includes contact details, service area, and company overview. You can also look up licensing information for electricians. (In Ontario, for example, as of January 2013 all electricians must have a Certificate of Qualification.)
You can read reviews on your prospective electrical contractors. All of our reviews are carefully screened to make sure they come from actual Canadian homeowners who have used the services they're reviewing. You can be confident that you're reading genuine feedback from someone who's been through the process.
Simply enter your search criteria, or browse through our extensive database of electrical contractors. Our databases are kept scrupulously up to date and the search process is fast, easy and simple. All this is carefully designed to mean a few less headaches for you.
If you want some answers quickly and you're short on time, you can post the details of your project. Electricians who read your posting will contact you with quotes and compete for your business by bidding on your project. You can also ask questions about the electrical work you need done, and you'll get answers from professional, licensed electrical contractors.
Once your project is finished, you have the option to post your own review. You can recommend the contractor if you're happy with the work, or if you're not satisfied, you can post reasons why you wouldn't recommend this person.
When you're all done with your electrical project, you feel safe in your home, and you know that your family is protected from electrical shorts and fire hazards, you can move on to other projects you may need done.
