Once you have a collection of licensed, well-reviewed electrical contractors in Green Bay, contact them to get answers to several questions:
Are you insured and bonded?
Are you experienced handling my particular type of request?
Do you offer free written estimates?
Do you guarantee customer satisfaction and include a warranty on labor on parts?
As long as you get a “yes” to all the above, you should ask for an estimate. Try to get at least three estimates before picking an electrical contractor in Green Bay. The estimate should include a summary of the job to be performed, pricing (e.g., labor, parts, service fee) and projected start and finish dates.
