Do you show proof of your electrician license and permits?

Yes! One of the single most important questions to ask an electrician is to see proof of their license to operate. Anyone can tell you they're qualified, but showing you the visible proof is a different story. Make sure to double-check that their license period is still valid and has not passed the expiry date.
If you're having major re-wiring work done on your home, you'll need to ask about a master license. This permits an electrician to work on both the design and installation aspects of a job. If an electrician only has a journeyman license, this means they are only licensed to install electric features. Remember that licensing requirements differ from state to state.
Additionally, you need to ask about permits for a specific job and whether an electrician is open to getting these permits where they need to. Working without a permit could land both you and the electrician in hot water. Take note that it's the job of certified electricians to acquire these permits and not yours!

Do you have proof of insurance?

Yes! Insurance is an absolute must for any type of contractor working on or inside your home. When changes are being made to your property. always be sure to ask about contractor liability insurance coverage. If something goes wrong and causes damage to your home or a Person inside it. you want to have that peace of mind that accidents are covered. certified electricians would have an insurance company to cover these damages. This will never be your responsibility.
