TDR Electric Inc.
Electricians in Vancouver
"We recently used this company for a project at one of our stores. We called them up and Taylor answered, he was able to come to our store later that day and give us a quote. We got 3 quotes for this project and these guys were the most expensive. ..I decided to use them because he was very informative and had some great suggestions on what to do with our lighting in the store. Boy were we impressed, they were able to start within a few days. He coordinated the man lift we needed and was dropped off first thing in the morning. Sean and Aaron were doing the job and they were a pleasure to work with. We made some changes throughout the job and it wasn't an issue. They estimated 3 - 4 days for the project and wouldn't you know it they were done in 3 days. We will definitely be using them for our other stores when we are in need of anymore electrical. Thanks guys!"

What do licensed electricians do?

An electrical contractor plans, installs and repairs wiring in structures. He or she works closely with the home’s general contractor or remodeling contractor to determine the specific electrical needs for the project and to ensure that the wiring will meet Vancouver building codes. An electrical contractor’s job also includes installing and repairing fixtures, switches and other visible components of electrical systems.

With today’s technological needs and advances, many electricians in Vancouver also are trained to install fiber optic and coaxial cables for electronic equipment. Certain electrical companies may design and install data systems and wire for security features such as alarms too. Some electrical contractors specialize in specific areas, such as HVAC, low-voltage appliances and systems and more, so be sure to ask about their training to see if it fits your project needs.
