Choosing an Electrical Contractor in North Carolina

An important decision

At Buck Parrish Electric, we realize that selecting a qualified electrical contractor for your residential or commercial projects is important for many reasons. Without a doubt—the biggest reason is personal safety. During a typical year in the United States, home electrical problems account for 67,800 fires, 485 deaths, and $868 million in property losses. Home electrical wiring causes twice as many fires as faulty electrical appliances. Most electrical fires result in problems with 'fixed wiring' such as faulty electrical outlets and old, outdated wiring that has been installed in older homes. In urban areas, faulty wiring accounts for an astounding 33% of residential electrical fires. So you can see, it is extremely important to ensure that the electrical panels, outlets, switches, and junction boxes in your home are correctly installed and not damaged or modified by unlicensed electricians. It doesn't matter if your project is big or small; it doesn't matter if you're located in Chapel Hill, Durham, Mebane, Burlington or Raleigh; please remember that safety is always a key component of our services at Buck Parrish Electric.

Experience Matters

Do you know how much experience your electrical contractor has? Is your contractor reliable and trustworthy? Buck Parrish Electric has had the same phone number for almost 20 years, and we install reliability into every project we work on. From small jobs like ceiling fans and under-cabinet lighting, to complete new wiring systems for large custom homes, we are comfortable with a wide spectrum of work. Reliability means that you can be sure that the installed electrical systems continue to perform the way they were designed over a long period of time. For this reason, NECA publishes the National Electrical Installation Standards™ that establish a level of quality for installing electrical products and systems. Twenty separate standards have been published to date covering various systems such as lighting, panel boards, and distribution equipment. Also, the National Electrical Code™ (NEC) is the nationally recognized electrical safety standard and has been adopted by the wide majority of building inspection authorities at state and local levels.


We speak your language

At Buck Parrish Electric in Hillsborough, we know how easy it is for consumers to become confused by the jargon used by industry professionals. Far from being techno-geeks who sound like they live on another planet; you will find us easy to communicate with and simple to understand. Our founder is a local professional, who has lived and worked in the Raleigh-Durham area for many years to build a solid reputation. We are as comfortable wiring a trendy urban restaurant for an interior designer as we are working with a soccer mom who needs a flat screen TV installed on the wall in her child's play room. Speak to us, we listen. And we provide quality solutions.


Wide Variety of Work

We can provide the quality electrical work needed for your home, apartments, small business, or a major facility. Need recessed ceiling lighting? No worries. Want LED lighting in your baseboards? Not a problem. Do you desire a state-of-the-art exterior landscape lighting system to highlight your architecture? We can handle it. Our normal range of work includes many specialized systems, such as smoke and carbon monoxide detectors, new circuits for water heaters, dryers, welders and machines, even solar power with integrated utilities buy-back systems (where available). We can handle an electrical emergency, or a dangerous electrical condition in your home or business. Do you have a 'combination' project that involves not only re-wiring a wall, but actually MOVING a wall? Do you anticipate possibly needing woodworking or drywall work, together with the electrical? No problem—we have a trusted group of carpenters and other professionals who can save you the time and hassle of coordinating two contractors. In other words, we have the network and the know-how to get it all done properly, so you only have to make one phone call.
