    Finding electrical contractors in Cleveland


    Cleveland homeowners hire electricians for all sorts of services, valuing their training, problem-solving skills, technical knowledge and efficiency. Here are some of the most common reasons residents of Ohio’s second-largest city hire an electrician:

    • Adding new outlets or switches
    • Installing ceiling fans or recessed lighting
    • Hooking up new appliances
    • Rewiring a home
    • Replacing an electrical panel
    • Whole-home surge protection
    • Home remodels
    • 24/7 emergency services
    • System checkups

    When you need electrical services, contacting a professional is the right decision. Many home projects are do-it-yourself opportunities, but not the electrical ones: The risk to your personal and home safety is too high, and stopgap solutions can be dangerous and cost you more over the long run.

    Still, you want to choose an electrician in Cleveland carefully. Nearly 4,000 electricians are working in the metropolitan area, according to data from the U.S. Department of Labor. So how do you find the right one?

    • Only do business with a properly licensed electrical contractor. Licensed electrical contractors in Ohio have passed a trade examination and completed background checks. Electricians in Cleveland must be licensed with the state, bonded and insured and need to register with the city. Call (216) 664-2884 to make sure a contractor is registered in Cleveland.
    • Read reviews from customers. Avoid electricians in Cleveland with a pattern of poor reviews. Look for ones with positive comments about scheduling, attitude, courtesy, troubleshooting, expertise, communication, results and pricing. Reputable electricians will provide referrals. You can also ask family, friends and co-workers for recommendations.
    • Ask about satisfaction guarantees and warranties. Get written proof that an electrical contractor in Cleveland will stand behind the quality of his work. Many offer 100% satisfaction guarantees and have limited or lifetime warranties on parts and labor.
    • Get at least three written price estimates. These estimates should include itemized costs for labor, parts and any other fees, permit information and expected start and finish dates. Most residential electrical contractors in Cleveland offer a free estimate with upfront, guaranteed pricing.

    Cost of electricians in Cleveland

    Electricians in Cleveland generally charge by the hour for their services, usually at a rate of $50 - $100. The total amount you pay will not only depend on the time it takes the electrician to complete the job, but also whether any large parts are necessary (your financial responsibility), the electrician’s service fee and the cost of a permit. If you get emergency service, expect to pay a premium.

    After getting your estimates, make a choice based on price, the electrician’s experience and your comfort level with the contractor.
