Planning for Your Next Vancouver Electrical Project 

Planning for Your Next Vancouver Electrical Project 

If you expect to complete an electrical project in the coming months, now is the time to begin planning. At TCA Electric, we often hear from property owners in search of a North Vancouver BC electrician to dive in and complete a project. While we are always happy to help, we also like to caution property owners that planning is the most critical phase of any project. By taking the time to assess your needs and consider how they may change tomorrow, you can ensure you love the results of your project now and for years to come.

Let’s take a closer look at your planning considerations as you work with your North Vancouver electrician. 


Obtaining permitting is one of the first thing to consider when planning for your electrical project. When you hire a licensed electrician, they will be required to pull permits on your behalf. Be sure to inquire about the time constraints you should expect for the permits your project requires and plan accordingly to avoid unexpected delays.

Preparing for the Unexpected

Considering the logistics of your project ahead of time will help you plan effectively. If for example, you’re planning to move a wall and rewire the space, it’s critical to speak to a licensed electrician ahead of time. In many cases, existing wiring has to be brought up to code before new wiring can be installed. An experienced North Vancouver BC electrician will be able to assess your needs, and set your expectations accordingly, before any work begins.


Having all of the electrical fixtures on hand, that your North Vancouver electrician needs to complete your project, is another important part of the planning process. Simple oversights in delivery times or product backorders can cause costly delays. Be sure to speak to your electrician about the fixtures you will need and ensure that they will be available before work begins.

Future Plans

For many property owners, home improvement projects are completed systematically as budget allows. However, it’s important to keep in mind that you can often save substantially if you have several smaller projects completed at once. Be sure to discuss this with your North Vancouver BC electrician. You may find that you’re better off delaying your project, even just for a few months, until you can afford to have all of your potential electrical work completed at once.

Preparing the Space

Planning for an electrical project also requires preparing the space. This can mean temporarily displacing your family from the use of certain rooms or spaces in your home. Speak to your electrician about precautions you should take to ensure the safety of the crew as well as your loved ones.

By taking the time to plan ahead, you can avoid unnecessary project delays and other surprises. At TCA Electric, we are here for you every step of the way, from planning to final inspection. If you’re looking to hire a trusted area electrician, look on further!
