New building projects and renovations can be stressful, considering the vast amount of documentation and certification that is required. As a company or individual commissioning a new construction project, there is always the worry that the work will not be up to your exacting standards, or – even worse – not up to Australia’s regulatory standards at all! Peace of mind is hard to come by in the electrical and contractor industry.
By the time you realise that there is a problem, it will be too late – customers want to hold bad electricians accountable for shoddy workmanship, but it is expensive to get legal recourse if you have signed off on a project and only later found out that there is a problem. Here at CFR Electrical, we educate our customers about the latest legislation governing electrical contracting work and what your rights are as a client. Expert advice means peace of mind, always! The reality is that most contractors and electrical “experts” are not equipped to advise you sufficiently on matters of certification and compliance.
Electrical design is often not done as efficiently and safely as it should be, because of a need to do it ‘quickly and cheaply’. Sadly, many of those projects then end up costing a lot more over the long term because of a great need for repair work and comebacks. As the customer, you are responsible for the selection of the contractors, and if they do not have proper certification and integrity, it is on you! Using reputable and fully licenced electrical contractors is essential. One way of making sure you’re getting decent quality work done on your project is to ask for reliable testimonials – individuals and big companies are never shy to offer a right word when work has been done.
Ask about whether the projects were completed on time, to a high standard and without problems. For real peace of mind, ask an expert when it comes to your electrical contracting needs – ask CFR Electrical. We pride ourselves on meeting the highest standards to exceed the expectations of our clients.
