    Electrical Switches, Outlets and Fixtures - Install or Repair, Portable Generator - Install, Electrical Wiring or Panel Upgrade , and 2 more

    "All-American Pro was a great choice. Corey and Joni have put together a great team. When Corey and Joni came to the house for the estimate we had some questions. After discussing what we had planned he made some suggestions we happily followed. We agreed on the estimate so the next day we purchased 6 new fixtures. The day of the repair, Corey and Joni came to the house and introduced us to 2 of their electricians, Dallas and Danny. After about 4 hours, they were done. We couldn't be more satisfied and have them scheduled for more work. Honest,fair and professional is the best description."

    "I used Valera electrical to run 220V cable from circuit break outside the house through the attic in the garage to install fast charger. The workers were professional and they did the job on time. The quote was competitive and lot more affordable than other electricians. I also used them to replace a GFCI on a circuit breaker on another property . They are good people to work with. They do get busy but if you are patient it is worth it. -Mo"

    "At this point, we have scheduled work to be done, but given the communication, the fast service, the friendly estimator, and great customer service we've received so far, I fully expect to be satisfied with the job when it's complete. We are having photocell sensors installed to replace timers for our parking lot lights and we are having new LED fixtures installed to highlight our business sign."

    "I needed the trim replaced on 3 can lights on my front and back porch. Possibly the simplest home repair job in history. The only reason I could not do the repair myself was that I don't own a 23' ladder or scissor lift myself. Another large company that Home Advisor paired me up with wasted my time by insisting they "had to see the job in person to give me a free quote". Their salesman tried to convince me I had other electrical needs and in the end quoted me $1,500 just to replace the TRIM on three can lights. I was so frustrated with the attempted ludicrous upsell and offended by the assumption that I might be stupid enough to pay anyone $1,500 to replace 3 can light trims. Shane quoted me an hourly rate that was quite fair and got two men out to do my job within two days. Lucas and Paul were prompt, professional, polite and clean cut. They arrived with all the necessary tools and ladders to get the job done in one trip. And although the job was super simple, it was evident from talking with them that they know their business inside and out, as well as many other types of home repairs. Best of all, since they were there with such a tall ladder they very kindly helped me out with two other projects I had around the house that required a very tall ladder. They went above and beyond in helping me tackle my honey do list. It was so nice to find honest, down to earth, hardworking local folks that you can trust to help out with home projects. Unscrupulous contractors truly infuriate me, and sadly there a are bunch out there. I will be keeping Murphy's Electric's contact info for all future electrical needs, as well as passing it on to my friends. And I will be requesting Lucas and Paul as my technicians in the future. It was a pleasure to give my hard earned money to a hard working company that didn't try to scam me."

How much do electricians typically cost?

  • Baytown, Texas Average
    $376
  • Typical Range
    $169 - $666
  • Low End - High End
    $99 - $1,230

Frequently asked questions

  • An electrician’s cost per hour comes in between $50 and $100. It’ll vary depending on your location and the type or professional you hire. Areas with a higher cost of living can expect to pay on the higher end of that scale. Licensing level may also increase the price.
  • Usually you’ll pay a higher rate for the first hour. This covers their travel and time expense. Emergency or after-hours rates are usually higher too – expect to pay an emergency fee of up to $300 plus a higher hourly rate.

Electricians do a fair amount of larger remodeling and new construction projects but also common residential projects including:

For cost information related to the above tasks, visit our Electrical Cost Guide.

  1. Do you have a license to perform electrical work in this state?
    All states require an electrical license or work performed under a Master Electrician. You should also ask how many on the job hours of experience they have.
  2. Do you have insurance?
    Never use one who isn’t insured. You can ask to see proof of insurance.
  3. Do you have prior work references?
    You might skip this for small jobs like installing a light or outlet. For larger projects, always get references.
  4. What are your rates?
    Always ask up front. Getting a detailed quote up front is the best way to go.
  5. Who is going to do the actual work?
    Often, a Master Electrician will come out to diagnose and bid on projects, but they have their apprentice and journeyman electricians do the work. This isn’t a terrible thing, in fact it’s common practice. The Master’s license is on the line with any work he supervises.
  6. Is your work warrantied or guaranteed?
    Any reputable company or contractor warranties their work, usually for at least a year.
  7. Are you usually on time?
    Overbooking is a frequent problem with electrical work. Often, a service call goes long, and they end up showing up at your home late. This common complaint is easily remedied with an up-front and honest discussion. If they can’t be on time, make sure they’ll call.

1. Don’t Be Misled by an Electrician’s Hourly Rates

A truly skilled, well-equipped professional with a truck full of parts that charges $100 an hour can be a much wiser choice than an inexperienced hack, working with inadequate tools and no parts, but charging much less. Often, more experienced professionals get the job done quickly with warrantied work.

2. Compare Travel Charges

Rates reflect travel times. Travel charges can have a big impact on your costs and are in some ways easier to compare than hourly rates. Many electricians spend a third or more of their time navigating traffic on their way to a jobsite. Every contractor must find a way to pay for the expense of driving each day.

3. Bundle Repair Jobs Together

When you feel it’s time to call a pro, review your list and then conduct a mini-inspection of your home. Look for faulty switches and dysfunctional or crowded outlets. When the electrician comes, you’ll save money and time by getting everything taken care of at once.

4. How to Prepare & What to Know Before the Electrician Arrives
  • Be as thorough and detailed in describing your needs to your contractor. The more they know, the quicker the job will go.
  • Before they arrive, prepare a precise list of items you want serviced. Electricians have budgeted their time for a service call. They don’t have time for additional requests once they are on site.
  • Make sure the electrical panel box is accessible. You’ll pay for the time it takes to access it.
  • Clear away fragile items, knickknacks and furniture from areas where you expect the them to work.
  • If you have questions about the project, ask them before they start. Most are happy to run you through the problem and the process of fixing it.
  • Ask about potential issues after the work is complete. During a service call a professional will spot any potential hazards.
  • You’ll lose power to parts of your home while they work. Be prepared to pause anything you’re doing during the service call.
  • In most cases you’ll have the option to either pay at the time of service or have a bill sent to you. You’ll be able to pay with cash, credit and sometimes check.
5. Install Money-Saving Electrical Fixtures
  • By switching from ordinary incandescent light fixtures or bulbs to fluorescent or LED ones, you can substantially reduce energy consumption in your home.
  • Motion detector switches can help you save money on outdoor lighting while at the same time providing very cost-effective security to your home.
  • Creative landscape lighting and indoor accent lighting can make your home more appealing to you, your guests and potential buyers in the future.
