What Property Managers Should Look For When Hiring an Electrical Contractor
As a property manager, you have many responsibilities, one of which is hiring contractors to solve problems beyond what your staff can do safely.
From inspection, maintenance, repair, and installation of a building’s electrical system, you know that you can’t hire just anyone to work on these systems because there’s simply too much on the line.
Sure, you can try to save money by hiring a handyman to fix your electrical problem, but you shouldn’t.
Before you call someone else to tend to your building’s electrical system, let’s look at the risks of hiring an unlicensed or unqualified electrical contractor.
Electrical systems in commercial spaces are much more complex than your typical single-family home. So, when you put the welfare of your property and its occupants into the hands of an inexperienced, unlicensed contractor is just asking for trouble.
If the person you hire makes a mistake, cuts corners, or wings it because they’re in over their head, it can cause damage costing you thousands of dollars to fix.
Faulty wiring is one of the leading causes of electrical fires, so hiring a licensed electrical contractor with the skills, experience, and training minimizes your risk and is crucial to keeping your building and everyone in it safe.
What Makes an Electrician Qualified?
Electricians must undergo an apprenticeship before getting their license in the state they want to operate in.
The requirements for getting a license vary between states. Still, as a property manager, you must be sure that the contractor you’re hiring is legally allowed to operate in your state and exchange work for payment.
However, it’s not enough to be licensed; certification is another factor that speaks to being qualified. To be considered a legitimate tradesman, your electrician must be certified by relevant local agencies and contracting organizations.
Lastly, you must factor in an electrician’s experience when deciding whom to hire because licensing and certifications don’t mean much if the person has no expertise in tackling large projects as you find in apartments and condos.
Simply put, when you need to hire a commercial electrician to manage your property’s electrical affairs, you’re always better off if you hire a company that’s been there, done that.
