"This is our third emergency experience with Capitol Mechanical. Each time they have rushed out to fix our heating and air, and each time they have been thorough, professional, honest, and reasonably priced. I highly recommend them!"

"Our AC went out at our rental, and not only did capital mechanical get the job done fast and courteously, they passed inspection with flying colors.  Having dealt with several less than awesome contractors, Capitol Mechanical was a breath of relief, and they definitely gets the 5 stars."

How to Choose

Many firms make many claims about their track record, licensing and commitment to customer satisfaction. Most of them are being straight with you.  Unfortunately, there are a few exceptions. 

How can you be sure that the company you hire is upstanding? We recommend following these tips for selecting a contractor:


Contractors State License Board

Enter the contractor's license number in the Contractors State License Board website. Our license number is 539385.  Check for the following:

  • The license is current. It is illegal for a contractor to do work without a license.
  • The bond is current. The bond offers protection for you in the event that work is done improperly.
  • Worker's compensation insurance is current. Any firm that has employees should have compensation insurance.  Some firms don't have employees, so it is not needed.  In that case you need to decide if you want to contract with a one-person firm.

Better Business Bureau

Search for the contractor in the Better Business Bureau website database. You can see our BBB record here. Check for the following:

    • The contractor's BBB rating.  Ours is A+, the highest BBB rating.
    • Check to see if the contractor is BBB Accredited. We are.

References

Check references. Ask if there were any problems and, if so, how they were handled. Also ask how they found the contractor.


Get It In Writing

Get any work to be done in writing ahead of time. Make sure the payment schedule is defined, and all work to be done is described.


Don't Pay In Advance

The contractor should not ask for final payment until the job is complete.


Who Will Lead Your Project?

Find out if the person you are meeting with ahead of time will be involved in the project. Will they be back once the project starts and completes, or will they hand-off the project to someone else?


Multiple Quotes

Obtain multiple quotes from contractors who meet the qualifications mentioned above.
