The top qualities to look for in a commercial electrical contractor, include:

Commercial project experience

We tend to think of “commercial” as related to business, but in the case of electricians and electrical contractors, the term can apply on a much broader scale.

Projects that can fall under the commercial umbrella can include public works projects for governments, residential projects such as new housing tracts, apartments and condominiums, and of course, commercial buildings and campuses.

When considering the best electrical contractor for your project, look for a company that has experience in a variety of different kinds commercial projects. The wider the range, in size, scope, and industry sector served, the better. An electrical contracting crew that has a wide range of experience has pretty much “seen it all” and is in the best position to accurately assess and estimate the job, as the right questions, foresee potential problems and quickly and safely troubleshoot any unforeseen issues.

Licenses, credentials and training

Check the licensing and training of the electrical contracting crew. San Luis Obispo’s Electricraft, Inc. provides this important information for all key team members on the company website.
