Electrician in NoCo?
« on: October 08, 2013, 04:08:16 PM »
Can anyone recommend and electrician in NoCo area? There are literally no reviews online. Coming from Boston I feel like i am in an informational black hole up here :)

Most online reviews are BS anyway.  Word of mouth is still the best.

My cousin lives in Thorton and is a master electrician. He gets so much work based on reputation he doesn’t bother advertising. Years ago I did some basic apprentice work with him. Depending on the job he could probably come over this way... what do you need done?

I have a few light switches that are in bad shape, one sparks and one only sometimes works. I don't think it's a large amount of work, but the sparks are concerning...

The sparks won't hurt anything, it's the ensuing fire that does the damage. Ha
You must have a climbing buddy that is handy with wiring. Sounds pretty easy to look at.

What is really concerning that most people don't realize is that Conway, consisting of the 7 districts, North Conway, Conway, Redstone etc.
don't have a residential building inspection process. No structural framing, no mechanicals, nothing. Here's your permit have a nice day.
Live free and die, comfortably at home.

Be careful what you wish for.  The inspectors in my area are guys who couldn't make it in the trades to begin with.  Ninety percent of the inspectors(again, in my area) have NO idea what they are looking for when they inspect the fireplaces I build.  One guy, who shall remain nameless,  doesn't even get out of his truck.

I know, I hear you. I do work all over New England and see both ends of the spectrum, believe me.
I'm not complaining for sure, I love it, but most people don't believe it when you tell them.
Particularly people building several hundred thousand dollar vacation homes.
Again word of mouth references are the way to go.
