Question and answer

Q. Describe the most common types of jobs you do for your clients.

A. Today, I mainly seek and perform service work, troubleshooting and repair, but do bid on and accept new work and larger projects if they interest me. I also consult on electrical problems, especially those involving stray voltage. Got an electrical problem, give us a call.

Q. Describe three recent jobs you've completed.

A. 1) Wired 2 ea 208 vac hydraulic car lifts in a auto sales lot shop.
2) Troubleshot and repaired a short in a residential lighting circuit. Service request came in at 10:38 PM and had repair completed by midnight.
3) Located an underground short in a feeder to an auto shop.

Q. What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?

A. Ask questions relative to the work you are looking to have completed. Ask for at least five references that can qualify the person's work ethic and ability to do the work. Ask for licensing and insurance information and confirm them. On just about evey project, get a written quote showing a good description and scope of work including terms for payment. Now there is nothing wrong with a contractor asking for partial payment up front to purchase materials. many contractors have properly finished projects only to get stiffed on payment, or has had to order specific materials that can not be returned or used on another project if something unforeseen goes awry. In these instances, the contractor should furnish an itemized, priced list of materials to be purchase with the advance along with a time line of when material will be on the project and when the project take place. Also, the owner should request a lien waiver from the suppliers of material stating the material has been paid for. If the material was purchased from a big box or home improvement store, an itemized, dated receipt would be acceptable with a signed lien waiver from the contractor. These waivers or receipts should accompany any future invoices for completed work.

Mantych Electric, Inc only asks for money up front if the project requires specialized equipment such as light fixtures, specialized motors, etc.

Q. Why does your work stand out from others who do what you do?

A. I am an old school electrician and a craftsman. Today, with the influx of illegal aliens in the construction industry, there are very few true craftsman. The quality and safety of work has declined. When I leave a property, I can go home and sleep knowing my work is not going to damage someone's property or cost them their life.

Q. What do you like most about your job?

A. With troubleshooting electrical problems I enjoy the challenge of solving the problem plus, I have a reputation for fixing the unfixable. Not that I can fix all problems, some are truly unfixable, but some say if I can't fix it, it can not be fixed. I leave very few 'rocks' unturned, if any, in my quest to solve a problem.

Q. What do you wish customers knew about you or your profession?

A. About me? That I am old school, my word is my bond and I have over 35 years in this industry that I can draw on to prove it. Now I am not saying that all my customers over 35 years have been pleased, there are some people no one can please, but I can say that I have tried my best and the customers I have not been able to at least 'pacify' can be counted on one hand.
About the electrical industry, there are to many people out there performing electrical work that should not be and the general public will use them to save a dollar. Seems that what is most important to them this day and time, how cheap can they get it done? Electricity is something to be respected and is tricky. There are certain ways to install electrical work so as to be safe. Many, many people installing electrical work do it improperly and sooner or later they are going to cause a fire or personal injury, even a death.

Q. Do you do any sort of continuing education to stay up on the latest developments in your field?

A. I have to successfully complete at least 8 hours of continuing education by a Board certified instructor every year in order to renew my license. I attend all of mine in a classroom setting but one may attend 4 hours of classroom along with four hours online to satisfy this requirement.
