First be sure your Electrician, Electrical Contractor, Electrical Company is licensed.
You can use this link: https://www.myfloridalicense.com/wl11.asp
You can search by Name, License Number,City or County, or License Type.
You can see any complaints on the license and how long the person has been licensed. I believe that any company that has been in business 10 years or more has more credibility than a company that has not been in business that long.
So you have determined you are dealing with a licensed electrician, electrical contractor, electrical company.
And let us say you have determined you need a permit for your project.
Don’t let the electrical contractor talk you into pulling a home owner’s permit.
Be wary of any contractor trying to get you to pull the permit.
