Can I do my own electric work?

Sure. Building codes and inspections are concerned with HOW WELL the work is done, not with WHO does the work. Many simple electric projects are safely and effectively completed by homeowners.

The choice to hire qualified and certified experts like Price Electric to do the work becomes a matter of your own interest, time, budget, and the complexity of the project. Most homeowners can change a lightbulb themselves. Few can install a GFCI outlet. And almost no homeowner should attempt to install new outlets or wiring from their electric panel to a room in the house.

Few homeowners have any interest in filing the necessary paperwork for certain moderate to extensive installation efforts like adding a room. In fact, in many cases the most talented do-it-yourselfers hire professional certified electricians to do the wiring and circuit work.

Consider your own skills relative to the project to make the best decision for your project, your safety, and the safety of those who live or work in the space.
