If you need some electrical work done in your home or office, you may notice
that there are various titles used by some of your local electricians.

are two kinds of electrical professionals: electricians and electrical
contractors. The following is a breakdown of each role.

home or building or a remodeling project. Electrical contractors often
hire several certified electricians. Furthermore, they must possess a
high level of insurance coverage.
