An electrical permit may seem like an unnecessary expense. However, electrical permits are necessary to protect both customers and contractors. Valkyrie Electric pulls electrical permits for several reasons:
Electrical permits provide a documented history of electrical work. They also help differentiate work performed by different electricians. For instance, if your home is being renovated, it’s important that there is a distinction between electrical work previously installed and any new electrical work. This protects both customers and contractors from any liability for previous electrical work that isn’t up to current standards.
Liability. Your home is your most valuable asset. Hiring qualified electricians helps protect this asset. Valkyrie Electric is licensed, bonded and insured. Part of being a licensed electrical contractor is taking electrical work very seriously. We are legally obligated to pull electrical permits, and doing so ensures that all of our electrical work complies with the most up to date electrical standards.
Insurance. Having unpermitted electrical work completed in your home can jeopardize your eligibility for a home insurance claim. An electrical permit shows that you have invested in qualified electrical work by a licensed electrical contractor and everything has been done to code and above board. Any insurance claims that result from unpermitted electrical work might not be covered by your home insurance provider.
Resale value. Maintaining and updating your home is an on going expense. We understand. We’re home owners too. Valkyrie Electric provides professional electrical services that add value to your home. If you have ever had a home inspection done, then you know the condition of your electrical system will be assessed and valued. Electrical permits provide a documented history of electrical work that will help keep that value in your home when it’s time to sell.
