LED is a good choice to install in your company since it is energy efficient, has high-quality lighting solution and is cheap. However, the LED must be correctly installed in your building which is why it is important to hire the best lighting contractor. They are in charge of the audit, design, and installation of your LED retrofit project. Here are some tips on what to look for in a lighting contractor.
Look for at least three bids from different contractors.. In order for you to have plenty of choices, canvas on all of the lighting contractors that interests you and have each of them submit a price quotation for the project. It must be indicated in the price quotation the scope of work and all of the fees they will charge you with. Ask whether they will charge you of the purchase of their tools or whether it is already provided. Inquire whether they will charge you with some travel costs if their office is located far from your company. Look into each of their price quotations to help you make a shortlist of those that meet your budget. The initial visit must be done for free for them to measure out the amount of work to be done.
It is best that you are paying for the quality of their work. Make sure that you will not have to spend any more money after the installment. To elaborate, some contractors deliberately do a bad installment to charge you of maintenance fees. The contractor must offer financing, rebate filing, utility bill auditing or honor the warranties.
Find out their credibility. You can look for reviews about them online and check to see if there have been any complaints. A good contractor would value each customers’ sentiments. Make sure also that you ask them to provide you a portfolio on their previous customers so you can contact them to validate their identity. Inquire about their previous projects if they had any problems and they were able to solve it.
Have them show you their training certificates and the technical schools they went to. They must have undergone the proper training required for a lighting contractor to ensure that they are capable of doing the job. They should be knowledgeable about various lighting techniques and are able to answer all of your questions regarding the installment and vice versa.
A warranty must be provided for the product and labor. They should be willing to do repairs in case the LED would not work after the installation.
Lastly, make sure that the lighting contractor’s work is perfect and that they will not do damage to your home. They should be willing to provide free repair if they have broken any of your valuables or your landscaping.
