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. They are in charge of the audit, design, and installation of your LED retrofit project. Here are some tips to help you look for a good lighting contractor.
Look for at least three bids from different contractors.. To ensure that you will have plenty of choices, conduct a canvas on all of the lighting contractors that interests you and have 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. Clear it out with them if you are the one who will purchase their tools or they already have it provided. If the contractor is located far from your company, will they charge some travel costs. Shortlist the ones 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, some contractors deliberately do a bad installment to charge you of maintenance fees. They should provide you with 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 address all customer complaints since they would not want their reputation to be in the bad books. 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. Question them if they have had any problems with their previous projects and how they were able to solve the problem.
Have them show you their training certificates and the technical schools they went to. They should be able to provide you with it since this 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. If in case that the LED light would not work after the installation, they should be willing to do any repairs.
Lastly, make sure that their work is flawless and there will be no damage to your home. They should be willing to provide free repair if they have broken any of your valuables or your landscaping.
