Ron Dorris Electric & Solar Frequently Asked Questions

-How long have you been in business?
I earned my California Electrical Contractors License in 1978 (Lic. No 359610) Since then I’ve incorporated my business to ON TIME SERVICES CO doing business as RON DORRIS ELECTRIC (Lic. No. 978117)

-What special certifications or on-going training do your technicians receive?
Our electricians are either CALIFORNIA CERTIFIED ELECTRICIANS, ELECTRICAL CONTRACTORS their selves, or enrolled in California recognized and approved training programs.

-Do you guarantee your work?
California requires electrical contractors to guarantee their work for 1 year from completion. For a few decades now I have guaranteed, in writing, that for our workmanship, on the home you own and live in, we’ll guarantee it forever. Manufacturer’s warranties apply on equipment & materials.

-Do you help with any necessary permitting?
All the time. In many instances we do every single bit of the legwork. In some instances, we collaborate with our customers.

-Why should I hire you instead of doing it myself (not me personally, but I know people who would ask this…)?
It really depends on how much risk one is willing to take on. Risk for one’s life or one’s family and also risk for the property involved.

-What is the advantage of a Licensed Electrician (vs. my brother-in-laws girlfriends brother who is good at this kind of stuff)?
My quickest answer is that if someone hires the contractor they have recourse should anything go wrong. I’m sure there are some people out there that aren’t licensed that are above and beyond acceptable standards just as we know there are contractors who are simply awful at what they do. But, if there is a valid and active license involved, customers have a chance at some recovery should a project go bad on them. For the record, I’ve never had a complaint against my electrical license since day 1, 40 years ago.
