What is important to know about your profession?

Such as proper licensed personnel, insurances and registration. The consumer has the right to contact the state if they have any complaint about the contractor. If the consumer does not use a licensed electrical contractor for any work on there property, they not only may be jeopardizing the safety of there family. They also have no recourse to seek restitution and may be leaving themselves open to a lawsuit in the event of an accident.
What kind of questions do customers ask you?
How do I know if an electrical contractor is licensed?How do reducing my electric bill?How do I know if an upgrade is worth it?What should I watch for when someone is talking to me about doing an upgrade?Beware of the "you can save up to 30% of your utility bill". This is a sales term meaning "you will never save more than 30% and you ability to reach that savings is practically nil".
What we may not know about you?
I started my career in the electrical industry over 40 years ago, and some people like myself discover what they would like to be doing as a career at an early age. I have worked in the front offices for some of the largest contractors, engineers and companies in the State and Internationally.But what I always enjoyed was helping other people. Which is why in 2001 I started a small more personal company which allows me to reach out to the community in a way a larger company can not.
What do you recommend to know before hiring you?
Start by taking a moment to gather your thoughts and identify what you would like to have done. Take time to jot down a few notes and put together a game plan. Write down any questions you would like answered. Prioritize the work on what you really need done to what you would like done. Look at your personal schedule and think about what needs to be done immediately and what can wait and how long you want this interruption in you life to go on. Also try to establish some sort of budget.
What types of jobs are the most common?
Most common for us are projects where a customer would like something added on our remodeled to there personal taste. But there is a large demand for someone to call in to have something repaired or needs some troubleshooting. For our company we spend a lot of time working on projects that reduce electrical consumtion or has some sort of payback.
What are you most proud of?
We completed 10 lighting retrofits of the Bed Bath and Beyond Stores throughout North and Central Texas. Work was performed at night with a superior satisfaction rating and finishing all stores ahead of schedule.
What questions should a customer ask before hiring you?
Do you have an Electrical Engineer on staff?Do you offer written quotations?
Gary began his career in 1969 in the electrical field giving me over 40 years in the electrical engineering/construction field. He has since then, assisted in the production and profitability in the electrical industry at many levels and positions. His field and office experience enables me to offer a complete range of problem solving solutions and has continually striven to improve my experience and knowledge throughout my career with college courses and trade programs. He has successfully owned and operated my own consulting and contracting businesses including ownership and a working partner of a mechanical, electrical and plumbing engineering firm.
How can we save money hiring you?
Is your utility meter accurite? There was a large outcry in our area about utility companies installing smart meters. We offer a metering system for residential and small business customers thattracks and documents the electrical power usage. This is the only approved method that I know of that you can take to the utility company and PROVE that there meter is not accurate.It is also allows the owner to monitor its usage by the minute,hour, day, week, month, or year.
How many projects do you average in a year?
Our company averages over 100 projects in one year. We have the capacity to send out multiple service trucks for residential and commercial customers. We also have the ability to man remodel and "ground up" projects with over 21 employees.
