FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

Customers initiate contact with our company to inquire about a specific scope of work.  We provide free estimates as requested for a given scope of work.  If the scope of work is a repair or small in nature we can provide services without an estimate, it's up to the customer.  We usually do not require any payment up front to begin work.  Work is progress billed if job is large or collected upon completion for smaller jobs.


What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

In 1981 Mark graduated from the Northwest Kansas Area Vocational-Technical College, having completed 1,540 hours of study, with a diploma in Electricity.  Upon graduation Mark returned to the Colorado Springs area and began his electrical apprenticeship. Mark obtained his electrical Journeyman's license in 1991 and his Master Electrician license in 2001.  Mark also obtained his Electrical Contractor license in 2001 and opened his doors for business in March of that year.  Gaddie Electric is licensed in numerous counties and municipalities throughout the state.  Gaddie Electric is an EPA certified lead-safe firm for renovation and repair work.  We are members of the BBB with an A+ rating.


Do you have a standard pricing system for your services? If so, please share the details here.

Some pricing is menu driven, some prices based on estimates, and some prices are based on actual time and materials used.  The scope of the work and size of the project influence what pricing scheme may be appropriate.  Please contact us for more information.


How did you get started teaching?

It is customary for licensed Journeyman and Master Electricians to teach and train apprentice electricians.  Teaching is a natural progression of the trade as one reachs certain licensing milestones.


What types of customers have you worked with?

We work with residential and commercial customers alike.  We provide services to numerous property management companies and numerous HVAC companies.  We provide mostly repairs, retrofits, and renovations.  We do electrical work for a hand full of custom home builders in the area.  We have worked on apartments, condos, churches, fire stations, office buildings, and numerous residential properties in the front range area. 


What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a pro in your area of expertise?

I would recommend the customer obtain a minimum of 3 estimates.  Use an electrician that is licensed, insured, and has background checked employees.  If you are being pressured to, "start the job now" you may be paying too much.  Also be cautious of companies asking for all or a significant amount of money up front to start the work.


What questions should customers think through before talking to pros about their needs?

Ask the estimator about their licenses, insurance, and credentials.  Ask about the timeline or availability within the contractors schedule.  If you have special medical needs or other needs and deadlines be upfront and let the contractor know before awarding the work.  Be open to suggestions and possible alternatives to solve your issue from the estimator.
