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. You must look for a lighting contractor that will do the audit, design, and installation of your LED retrofit project. Here are some tips how to select 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. Make sure that the scope of work is indicated and that every fee is included. 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.
Ensure that your investment is worth it. 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, there are some contractors that intentionally do a bad job to charge you of maintenance fees. The contractor must offer 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. 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.
Ask them to show you certificates of training or proof of graduation from technical schools. 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.
A warranty must be provided for the product and labor. 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 the lighting contractor’s work is perfect and that they will not do damage to your home. They should be willing to provide free repair if they have broken any of your valuables or your landscaping.
