How to Find the Best Electricians in Marin County CA 

Electricians in Marin County are required to be licensed by the state for your protection, such as the C10 license specifically for electrical contractors. Unlike most other license categories where only the company owner needs a state license but not their employees, every individual who performs electrical work needs to be licensed in their own right even if merely an employee of a licensed electical contractor.

If the company has employees, they are legally required to have workers' compensation insurance to protect you the customer from being sued if an injury occurs during work performed at your property.  Electricians are not required by law to have general liability insurance; however, all electrical contractors bearing The Prime Buyer's Report—TOP 10 designation have general liability insurance coverage to reimburse you in the event of any damages, in addition to passing all other requirements for certification as Prime Buyer's Report—TOP 10 such as our research phone calls to their previous customers, hiring only documented workers, verified license and workers' comp insurance, clean complaint record, and more.




Electricians in Marin County Perform Numerous Services
To be a licensed electrical contractor, one must be proficient in a number of tasks, but because the industry is so expansive, good electricians often specialize. So a given electrician in Marin County may have years of experience, but they still may not be the best fit for your specific wiring repair or electrical repair project.  Residential electricans can fix or install circuit breakers, dryers, paddle fans, attic fans, oven circuits, ceiling fans and do home rewiring. Commercial electricans in Marin County can install commercial lighting for parking areas, underground commercial electrical work including retrofitting, retail and commercial electrical inspection and testing, backup generators and other backup power systems.

Some electricians in Marin County often have lighting design experience, which they can apply to install track lighting, recessed lighting, and lighting control systems.

Electricians that have electrical engineering certification can install 3 phase motor controls, U.L. listed motor controls, wiring for code UBC, and underground/T.I. wiring.  

 

Electricians in Marin County Regularly Carry Required Components
The best electricians in Marin County perform a variety of electrical repair & electrical services for your home, and often arrive at your door prepared with the necessary test and measurement equipment and replacement parts. Depending on the purpose of the visit, good electrical contractors will be armed with gas/leak detectors and analyzers, wire and breaker tracers, safety switches, and other testing products to restore your power or remediate any safety concerns.

In order to avoid billable repeat visits, conscientious electricians will carry replacement wire, cable, fuses, fittings, connectors and conduits. With the necessary equipment, they can repair fans and thermostats, and perform disconnects or power restorations from your circuit breaker panel. Many of the best electricians can service your light fixtures as well, installing dimmers and bulbs to optimize your home lighting or reduce unnecessary electrical drains. Most of the good electricians in Marin County are trained in CAD and certified for home wiring repairs, so you can trust that, based on the information you've given them, they can capably resolve your electrical problems.
