Learn About Licensing and Permits Wiring

Do I need a Permit and Licensed Electrician?

When considering new construction or renovation, it is imperative to pull any required permits and work with a licensed contractor. Permits exist to ensure your safety and the safety of those working on the construction process. Without a permit, a contractor may attempt to cut corners to finish the project that can lead to a stop in operations, fines, safety issues, and a tarnished reputation. Permit and building code requirements differ city by city. A good choice of contractor is one that informs you of any required permits or even offers to pull them for you.

Even when a permit is not required, it is in your best interest to work with a licensed contractor and business. A licensed contractor will take responsibility when issues arise, both by the contractor and previous work completed. Their license is dependent on getting the job done right. By not working with a licensed contractor, you gamble on future issues and expenses. A small unlicensed renovation today can lead to expensive change orders and work stops during a future renovation. This can lead to issues during insurance claims or lowering the resell value of the property. Do not risk your safety and your business; use a licensed contractor.
