Commercial Electrician Near Me: License, Insurance, Bonding & Background

Commercial electrical work is complex, and it requires a particular level of knowledge and skill. A commercial electrician licensed by Illinois will have satisfied the state-mandated requirements for working on your system safely and correctly. By law, a licensed electrician also will be insured in the event of any damage, accidents or injuries at the site.

Besides the company being state-licensed, individual electricians can be licensed as either Master or Journeyman electrician by their county. The company’s electricians should be certified, meaning they have completed a four-year apprenticeship as well as the coursework for Level 3 qualification. They will also be pursuing continuing education and keeping current with the National Electrical Code, which is updated every three years.

A low fee for commercial work might appear attractive, but it could also signal a lack of elements such as training or insurance. You are well within reason to request the electrician’s current license number and copies of their insurance certificates.

If the electrician’s credentials also include being bonded, that tells you that you will be covered if the electrician does not complete the work. This provides additional security and peace of mind.

You can also verify that a commercial electrician conducts background checks and drug testing for its employees. When you hire an electrician, you allow certain access to your business, and you are justified in ensuring the integrity of the people you work with.

Commercial Electrician Near Me: Experience & Reputation

For something as intricate as commercial power, proper experience and confirmed competency are essential. The company you contract should have an established record of working on commercial buildings. Inquire about how long the electrician has been serving commercial customers.

The provider’s staff should also include a master electrician, which is the profession’s highest distinction of knowledge and skill. A master electrician has completed at least three years of hands-on field work and been vetted for quality of workmanship and knowledge of electrical safety.

Other customers’ feedback and reviews can offer you valuable insight as well. With the internet, you can usually find out fast if people are satisfied or dissatisfied with how an electrician performs. Websites such as Angie’s List and Google Reviews are common resources for community reviews.

Other good resources for information about an electrician are the Better Business Bureau and your local building department.

Commercial Electrician Near Me: Service Range & Warranty

Not all electricians are proficient in all aspects of commercial service. For example, some might be adept with machinery control wiring but not with underground wiring. Other electricians might be superb with smaller jobs but have less specialization in big projects.

Whether you need a switchboard upgrade or wiring for commercial lighting or an alarm system, the electrician should be a good fit for your project type and size.

Reputable electricians will reinforce the quality of their work as well. Inquire about the business’s parts and labor warranty.

"The technicians at Trinity services were extremely professional. It was a pleasure to open up our home to them. My wife and I were extremely impressed with how neat and clean they worked. A lot of contractors just don't care, but I could tell that Trinity was not one of those contractors."

Bruce – Naperville, IL

"I met Josiah last week when he came out to 310 S Rosedale in Aurora to consult with my clients about the house they are buying. I was very impressed by both his knowledge and wiliness to answer questions. Far too many in the trades are not quite so customer centric. In any case, it is my pleasure to recommend your company to other agents and to my own clients in the future."
