LED is a good choice to install in your company since it is energy efficient, has high-quality lighting solution and is cheap. 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.. 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. The price quotation must contain the scope of work and all the fees they will charge you with. Whether 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.
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. They should provide you with financing, rebate filing, utility bill auditing or honor the warranties.
Check out their credibility. Check their website and read the reviews to see if there have been any complaints about them. A good contractor would address all customer complaints since they would not want their reputation to be in the bad books. To validate their identity, ask them to provide you a portfolio on their previous customers. 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 must have all of these since it would mean 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.
Their labor and the product must be provided with a warranty. They should be willing to do repairs in case the LED would not work after the installation.
Lastly, they should not damage your home during the project. They should be willing to provide free repair if they have broken any of your valuables or your landscaping.
