Questions to ask before you hire a Electrical Contractor

Hiring an electrical contractor for a project isn’t something most people do every day. While you may have a number of electrical companies from which to choose, not all of them are created equal. How can you make sure you select the company that will deliver the solution you can depend on? Here are some questions you can ask to help you make your decision.

How Long Have You Been in Business? Why does it matter how long a company has been around? You want to make sure you’re dealing with a company that has been around enough to really know what they’re doing—one that has a reputation that’s allowed them to not only stay in business for generations, but to be recognized for excellence. Grotberg Electric has been in Business since 1948 and has 1000's of satisfied customers.

Are you insured? Insurance is taken by contractors to cover all the work they perform while on your property. This means that even if an accident does happen, you and your contractor will be covered.

How is Your Safety Record? If a company doesn’t pay attention to the safety of their employees, how can you expect them to pay attention to the safety and security of your electrical system? When dealing with electrical systems, safety needs to be an integral part of how a company does business.

Can You Provide Us with References? What a company says about itself is one thing, but what that company’s past clients say about them and the quality of their work is a whole different ballgame. It’s always a good idea to get and check references.

Hiring an electrical contractor is too important to leave to chance. Make sure you take the time to ask questions that will ensure you select the right contractor for your important project.
