I’ve had a lot of work done on my home over the past ten years. Everything that would ever need to be fixed, has been repaired or replaced. Every addition to a home you can think of, I’ve had. I’ve had an attic conversion, two extensions, etc. I’ve even had one room in my house converted into a pretty sweet music studio.
I’m a builder and carpenter by trade which means not only do I know how to do most of this myself, but I also know where to get the best materials for the best price, where/who to hire additional workers, etc.
I know the building game. No-one is going to be pulling the wool over my eyes and giving me shoddy service for exorbitant prices. Like I’ve said, I’ve been doing this for a long time and I’ve seen everything there is to be seen.
Though, saying all of that, there are a few things that I’m either unskilled at or unconfident with. The main one being anything electrical. I can do the most basic of basic tasks when it comes to doing electrical work and I have done a few things myself, but for the most part, this is something that I outsource to others. I know enough to know how dangerous it can be to attempt this kind of work myself without the proper skills and experience.
So whilst I’ve saved a ton of money on most of my home improvements, I’m happy to pay top dollar for top notch electrical works. I know all the best electricians Tulsa and know who to hire for specific jobs. Some companies do do some facets of the job better than others so it’s always good to mix and match electricians.
I’ve had one company that upgraded my wiring system, which was completely outdated, but then hired a separate company to set up my security system. This Tulsa electrician company installed my fire/smoke alarms, burglar alarm, CCTV system.
It’s worth getting to know which companies specialise in what, and to use those companies rather than a generalist electrical company that doesn’t have specific knowledge and experience.
