Fortus Electric suggests you consider the following when investigating a commercial electrical contractor: 1). Skill set: do the electricians have the skill sets you need to provide you with the electrical solutions you need? 2) Experience: Does the contractor you are considering have experience working with commercial businesses and solving their unique set of challenges? 3) Referrals: Can your potential electrical contractor provide credible references for previous commercial work experience? Are the referrals current customers and for work completed in the last 2-3 years? 4) Ask about the electricians safety record? Do they follow safe work habits and maintain a safe work environment? 5) What would be your contractor’s work plan? Will they complete the work themselves or sub-contract out the work? 6) Will the electrical contractor commit to a timeline to complete the work? If not, think twice about hiring them. 7) Meet with the electricians in person. Is there appearance acceptable for your place of business. 8) Be sure to get a commitment to job clean up. Nothing is worse than a contractor that completes a job, leaves and your, workplace is a bigger mess than when the work began. 9) After work guarantee. Will the electrician guarantee their work? Will they commit to completing a punch list if you find issues after the work is completed? 10) Check references, bonding, and other start required certifications. A little pre-planning will save future headaches and build a better working relationship between you and your commercial electrical contractor. Learn more about Fortus Electric.
