If you are remodeling or building a new commercial property, it is essential that you pick a commercial electrical contractor that can get the job done right. Here’s what you should always look for when determining which commercial electrical contractor is right for you:
Good Client Relationships
Does the commercial electrical contractor have good, respectful client relationships? You should be given references of past clients without hesitation so you can call and ask questions about the contractor’s reputation, quality of work, and professionalism.
If a contractor doesn’t want to provide you with references, steer clear of them. There is usually a reason why they won’t provide references, like disrespectful workers or a poor job.
Fully Licensed & Insured
Is that commercial electrical contractor licensed and insured? If not, find someone else. While commercial electrical contractors don’t require statewide licensing in Missouri, local governments will often require them.
Contractors also must be insured in order to protect everyone should an accident occurs. This shows that they are not only responsible, but maintaining their certifications and knowledge of safety codes. It will also protect you from being liable for workers compensation if someone is injured on the job.
Experience matters. While you can find a good, reputable commercial electrical contractor that has only been in business for a few years, contractors that have been in the field for a long time tend to have more experience. Which means less mistakes and better customer service.
Don’t take that quoted number at face value. What does that estimated amount cover? A reputable commercial electrical contractor will detail what each number on the estimate means and not leave you wondering or confused. If you have a question, ask the contractor and they should be more than happy to explain the quote to you.
