Get at least three bids from different companies 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. Make sure that the scope of work is indicated and that every fee is included. Ask whether they will charge you of the purchase of their tools or whether it is already provided. Ask whether they will include the travel costs if their office is located far away from your company. Shortlist the ones that meet your budget. They should 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. Make sure that you will not have to spend any more money after the installment. 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. 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 able to answer any queries you may have and vice versa.
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, make sure that their work is flawless and there will be no damage to your home. Free repair must be provided if any of your valuables are damaged.
