Call on us when you need an electrician for an installation, repair or other electrical work.
At Maguire Electric, we understand that there are a huge number of DIY videos online these days that will tell you that you can ditch the local electrician and handle your own electrical issues. We can tell you with complete certainty that is not the best course of action. Sure, there is a lot of satisfaction in completing a project on your own at your Wilmington, North Carolina home, but we recommend leaving the electrical work to a professional electrician. Here’s why:
- It’s not as easy as it looks. Any number of things can cause your electrical project to fail, such as choosing the wrong materials, using subpar materials, and missing one seemingly simple step that creates a fire risk.
- No recourse if there is a problem. To put it bluntly, if your house were to catch fire due to a mistake by the electrician (you in this case), what recourse will you have? None! There is a very slim chance we’ll make such a mistake, but if we did, you’d be covered by our insurance coverage. The reality is that you will have few legal recourses even if you were to hire an amateur.
- There’s no substitute for experience. We didn’t learn to be an electrician overnight. It takes dedication and training to be a certified electrician. Do you really want to use yourself as a guinea pig while you figure out electrical work?
- Pay attention to code regulations. When you do your own electrical work, the impetus is on you to follow all code regulations. This is important when you sell your home as a home inspector could notice work done incorrectly or that should have had a permit pulled.
If you want to play it safe (in more ways than one!), call on us when you need an electrician for an installation, repair, or other electrical work at your home.
