Things to Consider when Wiring Residential Buildings
When building a home its important to think of resale value. Just like a new vehicle, fully loaded vehicles are worth more than an entry level. Unlike vehicles though residential homes or buildings have a better chance of increasing in value. The residential buildings that are accessorized with the latest electrical wiring technologies and electrical wiring that is above code requirements will typically be more valuable.

Tips for Keeping on Budget
Have a plan and stick to it.
No matter how much planning goes into the building there will always be a few things that will change but a good plan will minimize the over all cost. Changes made after the electrician has roughed in the wiring will typically cost extra.
Establishing good communication.
A licensed electrical contractor will employ a residential electrician that will typically be the first to start and the last to leave the building. Discuss items and ideas with the residential electrician clearly and early in the job so they have a better understanding of the building that’s being created.
Consider future plans.
If you are considering a hot tub, gates, workshop, detached garage, landscape lighting or outdoor kitchen its important to have conduits installed during construction. It will cost a lot more later on to have these items installed by another residential electrician.
Purchase custom residential lighting as soon as possible.
Custom lighting can take 30-90 days to be assembled and delivered. Once received, the products may be broken or they don’t match what was purchased. This could delay your project by weeks or even months from being finished.
Pay on time.
If payments are delayed it could delay your project. Establishing a good relationship with the electrical contractor could lead to getting things done for free or at discount prices.
