Hiring a tradesman for doorbell replacement
Your doorbell isn’t just for convenience: it has a big influence on the first impression that people get from your property. A broken doorbell can be a nuisance as well as an eyesore, and with the growing popularity of wireless doorbells and smart technology, it will almost certainly be better to replace your old model instead of repairing it.
For replacing a doorbell, your best choice of tradesmen will be a qualified electrician. A skilled handyman should also be able to replace a doorbell, providing they have experience doing so. If you are planning to upgrade your doorbell, you may even want to talk to a home automation specialist.

What do you need to know about doorbell replacement?
Replacing a doorbell is not too complicated or expensive, and can be a great first job for a DIY-er learning how to work with electricity. Indeed, the voltage that most doorbells run on is at a relatively harmless level. However, it is best never to take chances with electricity. However simple your job might seem, just remember the old electrician’s creed: “Better safe than dead.”
In other words, if you do not know what you are doing, hire a qualified Pro!
One of the issues with doorbell replacement is that the prices and quotes for doing so are often relatively low, meaning that your tradesman may have to use their minimum call out charge as their quote. If this is the case, do not try to argue or demand your way to a lower price. Instead, try to think of other jobs that your tradesman could do in order to make up the difference in a way that benefits you.
