Best Questions to Ask a Solar Energy Contractor Contractor
Do you work with subcontractors?
The question is great for some industries and non-applicable for others. A general contractor, for example, will by definition employ subcontractors. Most Sebring Solar Energy companies do not, but there are exceptions. You should always ask this question to your service providers. If they do use subcontractors, ask if they're all licensed and insured independently.
Are you union or non-union?
This really only matters if you have a preference, but it is good to ask. If you have a strong ideological belief about unions or nonunions, it's perfectly acceptable to make a decision based on the preference.
Are you insured and/or bonded for Solar Energy?
You'll certainly want to ask them this. Steer clear of any company that is not insured in Florida, because that means that any incidental damage they may do on your property will be a real hassle to recover compensation for. It is never wise to work with uninsured tradesmen of any kind. Most states also require that someone have insurance in order to be issued a trade license. If they say they're licensed but not insured, they're being less than truthful.
How many contractors do you have working for you? How many vehicles are in your fleet?
This is important mostly for larger jobs. Clearly a two man operation is going to build a home much slower than a 15 man crew. This is also a good indication of the overall size of the Solar Energy company, if that's an area of concern for you. The reason you may want to ask about the fleet is that fleet size is a good indicator of the mobility of the company. Mobility may not sound important, but it's hard for the Sebring contractors to get to job sites if they lack appropriate vehicles.
Does the Solar Energy job require permits? If so, will you be pulling them yourself?
Many jobs in Florida will require municipal permits in order to be approved by the town's inspector. It's always good to ask who will be responsible for pulling those permits, and if you'll be expected to do it. You'll almost never be told to pull your own, but knowing that Sebring Solar Energy permits are required makes you appear to be a well informed customer.
