Change orders in construction

What a beautiful country

Many times a lower bidder will try to put in as many change orders as possible after they win the bid. Here at Peak Alarm we are not always the low bidder and we strive to avoid order changes. Certainly there are times when the owner or the Fire Marshal will ask or require something that was not on the original bid and therefore we put in a change order.

Not long ago we got a set of fire alarm plans approved by the Fire Marshal and we completed the installation and at the time of the inspection another Fire Marshal required that we add another Horn/Strobe that was not on the plans. It is not wise to argue with the Fire Marshal so we installed another appliance.

There have been times when we have made a change required by the customer without getting a change order or addendum signed and then they did not want to pay for the extra work or extra equipment that we provided so before any work will be started, before any equipment will be ordered, the proper paperwork needs to be filled out and signed.

Peak Alarm has been in business for over 45 years, we are licensed, insured, factory trained in several different product lines,we have multiple technicians certified by the State Fire Marshal's office, Peak Alarm has multiple NICET certified technicians including myself and we are set up to do a professional job from the start. Peak Alarm has their own UL Listed 5 Diamond Certified Central Station, Peak Alarm has their own Guard and Patrol division and 5 offices with 270 employees.

Peak Alarm has an A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau and we encourage people to go onto the BBB web site and check the information on any Alarm company they are thinking of using. Peak Alarm has had 5 complaints filed with the BBB in the last 3 years and only one in the last year and they have all been closed out and addressed. Peak Alarm strives to use any complaints and address them in a positive way and make changes where needed to improve. Some of our other competitors have a great deal of complaints and many of their scores are less than the A+ rating for a reason. We don't need to speak poorly of our competitors because their records speak for themselves. We have other competitors that do a great job and have very few complaints and are also licensed and insured. When getting bids do a bit of research to make sure the companies you are using meet the criteria to give you a professional proposal and do the job right the first time.
