How to Contract the Best Interior Installation Company

When it comes to finding and hiring an interior installation service to do home installation, there are a number of things to look for in order to find the best interior installation company.

1:    Experience

This is a big one. Does the company have the experience required to provide you with the best possible in home installation?

2:     Backed by Licenses and Insurance

Make sure that the company you choose is licensed, bonded, and insured.

3:    Transparent with Available References

An installer should always be willing to provide a portfolio and references.

4:    Quality Parts

When choosing an installer, look for one who only uses quality parts. How do you know if quality parts are being used? Goes right back to transparency—your quote should include spec sheets for your main components (panels, inverters), including years of warranty for each of the parts.

5:    A Focus on Workmanship

Again, an installation should be an improvement to your home. So find an installer who is just as concerned as you are with the way the installation you are having done will turn out.

6:    Knowledge of Federal, State, and Local Requirements

When it comes to an installation, who wants to wade through federal, state, and local permitting requirements?  Depending on the type of installation you are having done, find out if your installation contractor is licensed to do the work in question.  Are there any permits required for the work being done?  Do you live in an historic district?  An experienced installer will be well versed in such matters.

7:    Two-Sided Communication

Choose an installation company that has people who listen to your needs and design a solution to meet those specific needs.  Avoid companies that specialize in a one-size-fits-all approach.  Look for an installation company that encourages two-way communication, where you can ask questions along the way to guarantee the end result is exactly what you are after.

8:    A Partnership, from Beginning Until End

In short, when it comes to choosing the best installation company for your home, look for a company committed to forming a partnership, from beginning to end. And the ‘end’ means the life of the installation.  You need an installer who will still be around, one who’s built a relationship through transparency and open communication, one who has a track record for providing quality installations through attention to detail.  Don’t hire anything other than an installation company willing to do what it takes, to ensure you have the best installation possible.
