With a house build or renovation, the chances are you will need to hire an electrician.

Electrical contractors and electricians will have certifications, regulations and years of experience under their belts that will ensure your electrical work is sorted quickly and professionally. With Houzz, you can read through reviews and ratings of local electricians and electrical contractors, as well as see photos of their finished projects, so you can be sure you’ll find electricians that you can trust.
For what jobs will I need an electrician?
Electricians can handle all sorts of jobs, from small to big, when it comes to domestic electrical work. If your home project is a large one, you’ll probably want to involve local electricians in the early stages and they can plan, alongside the architect and builder, how the wiring will be set up throughout your house.
Single room renovation, or just updating elements of one room, will require less electrical work but hiring qualified, local electricians is still advisable. Electrical contractors will be able to install lighting, fix electrical sockets in place, set up large electrical appliances and wire up systems such as surround sound stereos. Talk to a professional electrician about any special electrical projects you have in mind, such as some innovative outdoor lighting or some up-lighting in your hallway, to see if they can bring your idea to life.
If a power cut leaves you in the dark, a fuse has blown or your plug sockets stop working, then you can find emergency local electricians with Houzz that can help you.
