Whether you are in the market for a residential electrician or a commercial electrician, any of the electrical contractors you consider should be licensed. Believe it or not, there are electrical contractors practicing without a license. Not using a licensed electrician opens you up to liability and other potential problems. Let’s take a look at some reasons why you should also make sure your residential electrician and/or commercial electrician is licensed.


A licensed electrician is also most likely insured. An unlicensed electrician is unable to obtain the proper insurance. You want to make sure that any residential electrician or commercial electrician you consider is not only licensed, but also insured.

Complicating the problem

Electrical contractors who are not licensed likely do not have the training or experience needed to perform quality electrical work. Mistakes and/or oversight in the electrical world could cause the need for more repairs and can even result in serious consequences such as equipment damage or electrical fires.

Hidden or unclear pricing

When working with a residential electrician or commercial electrician, you want to make sure there are no “hidden” or unclear pricing practices. Top Flight Electric uses flat rate pricing software, so the scope and price of the work you need completed is determined before we begin. This is rare with unlicensed electrical contractors and, sadly, not a common practice even with some licensed electricians.
