A Story From Our Owner Richard Cordery:
Approximately 3 years ago I was called to a house to do a quote. The people were putting an addition on for a bigger kitchen it looked like it was going to be very nice. We talked for quite a bit about what they wanted and I had a look at their main panel and service it was very old and did not have the capacity so I said we should be do an upgrade. I priced out the work that needed to be done and sent them a quote I was told they were going to do the work themselves.
I was by the house sometime later I could see they did not upgrade the service but the addition looked done about 2 years later I was contacted by an insurance investigator saying he had found a quote of mine in a house where there was a fire and would I speak to him? After looking up the quote and finding it was the house above I said yes. He explained that the fire was thought to be started by an electrical fault and asked if we did any work in the house and did we get a permit for it because there was no permit on file. I explained as it said in the quote I would not do the work unless the main service was upgraded and the people thought it was too expensive so they did it themselves
I was asked to give a sworn statement and the people did end up saying they had done the work them selves without a permit.
The happy part of the story luckily no one was hurt in the fire.
The sad part of the story is they were not paid out by the insurance company.
