Electrician recommendations

Looking for recommendation for an electrician in the Cary/Morrisville area. I would like to get an additional circuit installed in my garage.

Diy? I'm by no means an electrical but I've added several new breakers to my house. You basically just have to run 12-2 wire from the box to the new outlet (s) and throw in a 20a breaker.

I'm not opposed to it - just don't know how. I would be much more comfortable doing it with someone who has done it before. The breaker box is in the garage on the same wall where I want the new outlet, so it should be extremely simple as far as running wire.

Electrician recommendations

Easy to DIY (especially if you use exterior conduit and boxes) but if you start messing w/ it without pulling a permit there's a bit of risk.

Like if you go to sell and the buyers inspector catches something that doesn't meet code, then they start digging and see that you never had a permit. It can scare a potential buyer away.

But if you are like me and cut a big hole in your wall a circuit is the least of your worries. If I ever move I'll have a contractor come in and put everything back to original and get inspected.

If I was closer, I'd be more than happy to help.

Way to many tanks! I need to downsize, but it's so hard....

Hello, there are a lot of companies that provide electrician services, you have just to search for them on the internet. Of course, not all of them are good ones, but that is why you should make a small research on that topic. I had some problems at my home, and I called Bates Electric St Louis which are the best in the area, their services are not expensive, and they are doing their job pretty fast. So try to call them, I am sure you will be pleased with their work.
