The Best Fire Protection Contractors in Rochester NY Are the Ones Proven Safe To Hire

The state of New York requires fire protection contractors in Rochester NY to be licensed by the state to install fire alarm systems which requires 81 hours of education and passing an exam.   No state license is required to install fire sprinklers or to install fire extinguishers or perform fire extinguisher recharging services.
 
But even the state license for fire alarm systems is no guarantee that any particular fire protection contractor in Rochester NY is doing business ethically, providing real value, or satisfying customers.

This makes it all the more significant that all fire protection companies in Rochester NY who bear The Prime Buyer's Report-TOP 10 symbol have been cleared by our research staff as passing all the requirements for Prime Buyer's Report-TOP 10 status such as survey phone calls to previous customers to verify high satisfaction, good complaint record, verified state license (for fire alarms), proof of liability and workers comp insurance for your protection, only employees legal to work in the U.S., and more.

The Best Fire Protection Contractors in Rochester NY Are the Ones Proven Safe To Hire

The state of New York requires fire protection contractors in Rochester NY to be licensed by the state if they are installing fire alarms which requires 81 hours of course work plus either passing an exam, or showing two years of industry experience. This license is not required of those already licensed as Master Electricians.   The state of New York has no state license requirement of other non-electrical types of fire suppression systems such as fire sprinklers, water spray, foam-water, foam-water spray, carbon dioxide, foam extinguishing, dry chemical, wet chemical, halogenated and other chemical systems used for fire protection; the supply mains, yard hydrants, standpipes and hose connections to sprinkler systems; and tank heaters, air lines and thermal systems used in connection with sprinklers, tanks and pumps dedicated for fire suppression use.  So there is no state standard for competency among fire protection contractors, other than fire alarm installers specifically, leaving it up to each city or county to decide to require a license, or not, of such fire suppression system contractors.

But even the state license for fire alarm installers is no guarantee that any particular fire protection contractor in Rochester NY is doing business ethically, delivering value, or satisfying customers.

This makes it all the more significant that all fire protection companies in Rochester NY who bear The Prime Buyer's Report-TOP 10 symbol have been cleared by our research staff as passing all the requirements for Prime Buyer's Report-TOP 10 status such as survey phone calls to previous customers to verify high satisfaction, good complaint record, verified state license (fire alarms only), only employees legal to work in the U.S., and more.

Fire Protection Contractors in Rochester NY Perform Numerous Services
There was a time when the only warning of a fire was the smell of smoke. But fire detection devices that were once exclusively available to industrial clients are now available for private residences. There are fire protection contractors who are trained to enhance the safety of your home with these technologically advanced systems.

Fire protection contractors can install a number of features in your home or commercial property to not only warn you of a fire, but protect you from the damage and financial crises that accompany it. To assess the existing fire risks of your property, fire safety contractors perform hydrostatic testing, safety inspections, fire sprinkler testing and maintenance, fire safety surveys, fire alarm testing, fire extinguisher charging, and remote fire sprinkler monitoring.

Fire protection contractors also offer consultations and free estimates for the design and installation of new fire protection systems with features such as U.L. monitoring, 24 hour dispatching, mobile recharging, high pressure pure air, fixed extinguishing systems, and of course, fire alarms. Some of these companies will even obtain all necessary permits for the installation, repair, or sale of your new fire equipment. 

Fire Protection Contractors Provide the Necessary Fire Safety Equipment
Fire safety contractors sell and install many OSHA approved products to protect your home from the danger of a fire. Many of the systems offered are custom designed and can include automatic sprinklers, hood systems, fire extinguishers, back pumps, emergency lights, or exit lights. Most fire protection contractors install the basics, like fire alarm systems, carbon monoxide detectors, and sprinkler systems, but may also install specialty systems known as life safety systems. These intricate systems might include spray booth suppression systems, kitchen range extinguishers, high pressure cylinders, and stand pipes. Some fire safety contractors also sell chemical fire extinguishers, fire hoses, and even first aid kits.

Questions To Ask Fire Protection Contractors in Rochester NY

When it comes to hiring good fire protection contractors in Rochester NY, first ask these questions about their experience, abilities, and promises:


• How many other fire prevention systems or fire alarm systems like yours have they installed with regards to material, size, commercial versus residential, wet pipe vesus dry pipe, foam water versus water spray or water mist, etc.?

• How long have they been fire protection contractors in Rochester NY specifically?  Greater experience in the specific area suggests more familiarity with local codes and permit requirements.

• Will they give you names and numbers of previous customers for whom they did the same kind of fire protection who you can call? (All fire protection contractors in Rochester NY bearing the Prime Buyer's Report-TOP 10 symbol have already had their customer references called by our research staff so you don't have to.)

• Will they give you their cost estimate in writing, itemized to include the amount of material you're getting, brand names and item numbers?  (This is key because cheap fire protection companies in Rochester NY often only seem cheaper by quoting you less material, or lower quality material that will turn out to be more expensive for you later in extra maintenance, or earlier replacement or repairs.)

• Can they recommend a simple change you could make to the specifications that would significantly lower the cost, and if so, what would you be giving up in performance? Likewise, do they see a big gain in performance or appearance that you could get for just a little bit more money?

• Are there manufacturer warranties on any of the materials to be used and what are those terms?

• Will they give you a written guarantee on their labor, aside from any manufacturer's warranty? If so, what does it cover exactly and for how long after the installation?

• How long will it take them to complete the project once they begin?

• Do they have a showroom where you can look at samples of different finishes, appearances, styles, or materials? If not, will they bring you samples or go with you to a supply store to do this?

• Will they put in writing that the new fire protection or fire sprinkler system meets the local building code ordinances of your community?

• Will a permit be needed for the new fire sprinklers or fire alarm system? If so, who goes and gets the permits, you or the fire protection system installers?

• Can they vouch that all their employees sent to your property are legally allowed to work in the U.S.? (All fire protection  companies in Rochester bearing The Prime Buyer's Report-TOP 10 symbol have already signed an agreement to only hire documented workers.)

• Will they show you proof of liability insurance and workers' comp? (All fire protection contractors in Rochester NY bearing the Prime Buyer's Report-TOP 10 symbol have already had proof of insurance verified by our research staff so you don't have to.)

• Do they use only their own permanent employees, or do they use subcontractors, and if so, what are the names of those subcontracted companies so you can research them?

When you've decided on the best fire protection contractors in Rochester NY for you, make sure they have a license from the county or city if that's required by law in your area, since the state of New York doesn't require any state license of fire suppression systems contractors, except for fire alarm installers specifically, who do need a New York state license.  (All fire protection contractors bearing the Prime Buyer's Report-TOP 10 symbol have already had their county or city license (if required by law) verified, and state license (fire alarms only), by our research staff so you don't have to.)
