When undertaking any renovation or electrical work on your home or property it is important for you to ensure that you are using a fully-licensed electrical and/or communications tradesperson that has both the necessary skills and qualifications to perform the installation. Renovating can often be a challenging and daunting task at the best of times, especially when you don’t know who to contact or trust with your home renovations.Electrical and communications systems are a significant part of a home renovation, and when done by licensed and professional tradespeople can add significant value to your home or property. But be wary, there are dangers lurking in the contracting marketplace with unlicensed tradespeople performing home renovation works, which can be a danger to both the outcome of your renovation and your family.
Inappropriately designed systems, faulty wiring, and high current loads can lead to house fires, electrical shocks, injury and even death for the unsuspecting home renovator. In addition, your insurance may become null in void if you use an unlicensed contractor, which could mean that you carry the bill to repair your home.Employing an appropriately qualified and licensed electrical and/or communications tradesperson removes the risk from home renovations.
