Obtaining and Comparing Bids

Once you've gathered the information, put it all together into a detailed description of the project; use this to obtain bids from at least three local electricians who do a lot of remodel work. Detailed job specifications ensure each pro is bidding on the same thing. If any bids are significantly higher or lower than the average range, ask for a price breakdown to see where the extra costs are coming in.
