Ask for a Licensed Electrical Contractor

A licensed electrical contractor has completed proper courses and job site training to do their job properly and safely. At Premium Electric we are fully licensed electrical contractors with no restrictions on the type of electrical work we can do.

Verify That They Are Insured

There are varying levels of insured electrical contractors so it is important to check on any restrictions your contractor may have that could prevent them from doing work in your home. As a registered electrical contractor Premium Electric Ltd. is fully insured and bonded.

Hire An Electrician with Experience

Years of experience often means that the electrical contractors you hire can provide high-quality workmanship and can work efficiently and more accurately than newer, less skilled electricians. This means you get superior service much sooner and at a more affordable price.

Premium Electric’s electricians, Tristan McAllan and Mike Speakman have over 30 years of combined experience. At Premium Electric, we are an A-ticketed, unrestricted electrical company, which gives us the ability to provide any form of electrical services to our customers. We work efficiently to install only the best electrical products in your home while providing high-quality workmanship.
