If you are looking to find an electrical contractor, it is important to know what exactly they do. Electrical contractors work with both new construction as well as service and maintenance of previous construction.In terms of new construction, they can help provide electrical items including lighting fixtures, panels and switch gear, switches that power cord-connected electrical appliances, and also other elaborate wiring systems. Most of this work is done on brand new construction but can also be incorporated into the major renovations of an existing building. Service and repair of electrical equipment is often a common task of electrical contractors as well, and this work is done for both residential and business customers. Most of these operations can be undertaken in a single visit. Many electrical contractors will also offer maintenance contracts for regular preventative maintenance of electrical systems, or for specific items of electrical equipment.

For the most part, large projects are contracted by electricians through competitive building.For smaller projects, service work is usually billed on a flat fee schedule, or a cost-plus-fee basis, depending on the scope.

It is important to find a properly licensed electrician to meet your needs, whether it be for a large scale new project or for regular maintenance.There are four different areas of electrical contracting: commercial, residential, light industrial, and industrial wiring.Who is qualified to work on which projects is regulated by local building officials in the United States.Generally speaking, some types of electrical work are only permitted to be performed by a Journeyman or Master electrician.These electricians are often required to serve an apprenticeship underneath other Journeyman or Master electricians for up to 3 to 5 years before they can become fully licensed, as well as attend school for electrical theory and to learn electrical building codes.Not all states offer statewide electrical licenses for Journeymen or Master electricians, rather, they receive licenses that are limited to the county or city licensing board, so it is important to check that they are qualified to perform work in your area before entering into a contract with any electrical contractor.
