    "When my mother's health took an unfortunate turn for the worse in the last year due to developing medical issues, the family and I struggled to solve the problem with a bit of DIY trial and error - but quickly realized we were in over our heads! Thankfully, Clark Handyman Services picked up and were happy to help listen and coordinate with me personally to guarantee that our needs were met without fail and assured us that they would be able to meet our goals and have everything accomplished well within the estimated window of completion. The all-weather handicap accessible ramp with attached deck and rails (all treated lumber which was sealed and stained perfectly to match the existing structure) sit neatly in place. It is squared to a "T", stable enough the grandkids can run around without wobbles, and to top it off it all fits snugly against the house without water run off inevitably causing me future worry by penetrating the foundation and basement walls thanks to the gutters and drain spouts they installed before wrapping up the project! THANK YOU for bringing us peace of mind with our mother's mobility, for being safety oriented, kind, courteous, and patient group of professionals who are dedicated to pushing the boundaries for the standard of excellence just a few steps further than I thought possible. Will be using them again this summer and telling my friends! -JB & Family"

    "After discussing the final bill, there appeared to be a misunderstanding as to the time intervals on which additional work was to be charged. Their office staff did not even miss a beat, but quickly refigured the total cost for me. I really appreciated it, because they did believe me when I told them what I had heard on the phone. Cody was a great worker. Next time, I'll double check their rates, and would hope that they would do so also to make sure the customer knows without a doubt what the charge rate is. My only criticism is that, knowing that a ceiling fan was to be installed, why there wasn't a mounting bracket brought with the electrician to put in the ceiling in case it was needed. n our case It was needed and I don't like having to pay travel expenses for parts. I think a little planning ahead and the electrician would not have had to go get that piece. He did had to go get a switch, which he had no way of knowing he would have had to have. He erred on the side of caution, which I really appreciated, and went to get another switch before even trying to turn on the fan. They will definitely get my business again."

    "After discovering that my electric box no longer conformed to the latest city codes, I requested several estimates. I could not have been more pleased with my choice or asked for better electricians than Pro Electric. They were always punctual, efficient, and the quality of their work met the highest standards. They explained the entire process to me at the time they did my estimate and followed through precisely as described. Their expertise became apparent throughout the entire project. Furthermore, not only did they repair my electric box but also they re-finished the dry wall and wood work around it. I had anticipated having to call in other specialists to fix those issues. I will most definitely call them again for any future electrical work that my home may require."

    "Two men came, and I'm an hour from their company address. They were promised between 8-10 and I was promised a call around 30 minutes before their arrival. Their performance was as promised. They needed a special washer for my weird project and drove six miles backtracking to get it for me at a local hardware with no extra charge. Amazing. They completed their work and then performed a free maintenance inspection. All the people on phone calls were well versed in customer service and the plumbers were Master Plumbers. I was well satisfied."

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.
