Hiring an Electrician: Building Omaha Is the Way to Go!

Your home is your haven.  It deserves only the best, including the service professionals who keep it running in tip-top shape.  

 So, when you are looking for an electrician, look to Building Omaha.  We provide the best-trained, safest, and most experienced electrical workers to power your home.


5 Reasons to Hire a Building Omaha Electrician:

1. Insurance and License: Accidents happen.  But if you hire an electrician who isn’t insured, you’ll be the one footing the (often costly) bill if something goes wrong.  


Make sure your electrician has: 

  •     general liability insurance, to cover property damage; 
  •     auto insurance, to safeguard against damage unloading tools and supplies; and
  •     workers compensation insurance, to prevent you from being responsible for any injury or damage that occurs over the course of a job.

      Hire a properly trained and licensed electrician to: 

  •     acquire necessary permits and inspection certificates;
  •     save time and money by having the job done right the first time;
  •     safeguard your home from potentially hazardous shortcuts; 
  •     ensure accountability to state electrical divisions; and 
  •     benefit from bonded electricians.


2. Qualifications and Experience: Your home deserves the best-trained electricians in the business.  Building Omaha professionals:


  •     Are formally educated in the classroom;
  •     Have 3-5 years of on-the-job training through our apprenticeship program;
  •     Keep current on new codes, safety protocols, and the latest technology through continuing education.


3. Warranties: A warranties is a seal of approval.  Building Omaha electricians stand by their work, offering service warranties, ranging from one-year to lifetime, on top of manufacturers’ warranties for such parts as switches, outlets, and lights.  



4. Knowledgeable and Responsive: You need to be confident in your choice of electrician. Building Omaha electricians are trustworthy and give your peace of mind by answering a number of questions:


  •     Are you licensed, insured, and bonded? 
  •     Do you offer a warranty? 
  •     Can you provide references? 
  •     What does your estimate include?
  •     What is your training and experience?
  •     On what kinds of projects do you typically work?
  •     Do I need a permit?
  •     What is the timeframe for completion?


5.  References and Reviews: But don’t just take our word for it.  Obtain references; check out reviews.  At least three references are optimum. And make sure you follow up, asking such questions as:


  •     Were there any issues? 
  •     If so, how were they resolved?
  •     How was communication between you and the electrician?
  •     Was the electrician courteous and timely?
  •     Did the project come in on budget?


In the age of the internet, reviews are plentiful. Consult Angi, Yelp, and Google reviews, to name a few.
