Frequently Asked Questions about Finding the Best Electricians

I’m a GC, how should I be leaving a testimonial and evaluating Electricians?

General Contractors should typically be checking an Electrician's past job performance and what other GCs have said about them. As a GC on a residential or commercial project, it’s important to know and trust the people on the project whether you hired them directly or not. GCs should be checking testimonials and pictures of an Electrician's past work but also their past payment efforts. Did this Electrician hire a supplier or a sub-subcontractor on a past job or will they on this job? If they do, it’s critical for you as the GC to know how that Electrician's has paid their vendors in the past. Not checking an Electrician's payment to a sub-sub or supplier could result in a filed mechanics lien on the project that can delay project completion or hurt a GCs relationship with the property owner. You can check an Electrician's past job performance on the Levelset subcontractor profiles including testimonials from other GCs.

I’m a supplier, what should I care about in the Electricians I work with?

As a supplier, analyzing an Electrician's risk are critical to keeping low outstanding accounts receivables. Suppliers should be looking at industry reports, credit reports, talking to other suppliers who have worked with the Electricians, reading testimonials, and checking past payment performance. Doing thorough research and risk analysis could mean getting paid when you expect it or waiting months for the money you’re owed.

How can I check for references for an Electrician?

There are a few ways a company can check for an Electrician's references. You can ask the company directly to ask for past customer references; any reputable company with a good track record can easily share some people you can reach out to. You can also google testimonials about the company’s past quality of work. You can also use Levelset’s Payment Profiles to see a company’s past job and payment performance including what their payment process was, how communicative they were, and how to best work with them.

What should I be looking for in my Electrician?

First, customers and vendors should be checking for an Electrician's quality of work. Look on the company’s website or on review sites for examples of their past work. Second, you should be asking about their payment process. If a payment problem comes up, do they communicate and answer the phone? Do they send preliminary notices to make sure everyone is aware they’re on the job and transparent about their work? Do they make the payment process easy by communicating upfront what you need to do? The best Electricians not only do great work but are also great project partners by making the payment process smooth and easy for everyone.

How can I find the best Electricians?

There are a few ways to find the best Electricians to work with. First, you can check industry reports and industry awards given to great Electricians companies. Second, you can check third party awards and websites that aggregate Electricians information (like Levelset). Lastly, while not an award, the best way to find the best Electricians is to ask in public forums or in your neighborhood social media groups who people have worked with in the past, what they liked, and what they disliked.

How do I check an Electrician's license?

The more sure proof way to check for and verify an Electrician's license is to look it up on your state government’s website. Most state government websites have this information publicly available and free for anyone who wants to check. Alternatively, many third-party websites also collect and publish this information. You can also check for a contractor’s license status and license number on the Levelset Payment Profiles.

How can I check if my Electrician filed a permit on the job I hired them for?

Like licenses, permits are public information so you can check for a filed permit on your job by visiting your local county recorder office or county recorder website. Permits are public information and you can browse filed permits. Alternatively, you can find them on third-party websites like Levelset. Wherever you check for permits, be sure to check where the permit information is coming from and how the company is aggregating some of this information. The best third-party websites make finding permits easy and have a relationship with the county recorder offices, getting this information directly from the counties.
