The hourly rate charged by professional, licensed and insured electricians or electrical contractors is always worth the cost.
You are basically paying for years of experience, knowledge of housing codes plus insurance coverage.
It’s never recommended to take the easy way out and try to do the work yourself because you don’t want to pay an hourly rate for a professional electrician.
Trying to perform your own electrical work or finding cheap labor is never a good idea. Inexperienced labor might be cheap but very costly in the long run because you will be held accountable for any work performed that does not conform to these codes and laws.
Don’t compromise the safety of you and your family. The risks are too great to leave to chance.
