In an age of do-it-yourself projects and home renovations, homeowners are doing more of home construction work themselves, literally tearing down walls. A simple plumbing repair, installing flooring, or even a bathroom tile job may be something you feel comfortable taking on. However, electrical work is one area that should definitely be left to the professionals at Wright Construction for a few important reasons.

1) Safety – Working with electricity is extremely dangerous. There are over 400 electrocutions each year due to electrical hazards. Twenty percent of those are due to wiring hazards in homes. Professionals have the expertise, equipment, and training to complete each job safely.

2) Peace of mind – Electrical faults account for an estimated 51,000 home fires in the U.S. each year leading to almost 500 deaths, around 1,400 injuries and over $1.3 billion in property damage. The potential savings is not worth the risk to yourself and family. Knowing an electrical job is done right gives you peace of mind.

3) Cost – It may seem like doing it yourself would save you some bucks. But by the time you buy supplies, any specialized equipment or tools and then still have to call an electrician to fix your mistakes it would be cheaper to go with the professional to begin with.

4) Experience – Many times with interconnected electrical systems fixing one problem can reveal other larger problems that need to be addressed. The experience a professional brings means they can spot and fix additional problems that arise.
