LED is a good investment for companies since it is energy efficient, has high-quality lighting solution and inexpensive. However, in order for you to be sure that they will be installed correctly you must find yourself a good lighting contractor. You must look for a lighting contractor that will do the audit, design, and installation of your LED retrofit project. Here are some tips to help you look for a good lighting contractor.
You must have 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. Make sure that the scope of work is indicated and that every fee is included. Clear it out with them if you are the one who will purchase their tools or they already have it 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. To get the price quotation they must offer a free onsight visit to your company to measure out the amount of work to be done.
Make sure that you are paying for the quality of their work. The price is still a factor but it should not affect the quality of their work that you’d have to spend more on repairs. To elaborate, there are some contractors that intentionally do a bad job to charge you of maintenance fees. They should provide you with financing, rebate filing, utility bill auditing or honor the warranties.
You should make sure that they are credible. You can look for reviews about them online and check to see if there have been any complaints. A good contractor would care about each customers’ complaints. Ask them to provide you with a portfolio on their previous customers so you can contact them to validate their identity. Ask if there have been any problems on their previous projects and how they were able to solve the problem.
Make them show you certificates from training or technical schools they went to. They must have all of these since it would mean they are capable of doing the job. They should be able to answer your questions about the project.
Their labor and the product must be provided with a warranty. It is important that they are willing to do any repairs if in the case that the LED light would not work after the installation.
Lastly, they should not damage your home during the project. Free repair must be provided if any of your valuables are damaged.
