They replaced all my smoke detectors. It's a very honest company with top-notch customer service.
They installed a roof fan. It was fast and a job well done—no problems after the job was completed.
They installed the following: a dryer outlet with wiring through the walls, a ceiling kitchen light fixture, a ceiling bathroom fan, and a surge protector. They also replaced electrical switches. It was positive. The technician was very knowledgeable and experienced. He also allowed me to watch him complete the work.
They installed oven and microwave connections, brought outlets up to code, installed recessed lighting, and removed ceiling fans and replaced them with light fixtures. Positive—they were on time, professional, and polite. The manager followed up with scheduling confirmation and satisfaction calls. Excellent workmanship.
They replaced my smoke detector and broken switch plates. The service gentleman was professional, pleasant, and informational. He worked in a timely way and left behind no mess.
They fixed everything that needed to be fixed in order for my fourth floor to cool correctly. They took their time to figure out what was wrong, and they didn't treat me as if I didn't know what I was talking about.
They moved two ceiling fans. The man was very kind. We had to try several different solutions, and he didn't stop until I was happy.
There were aging electrical fixtures in my basement and they were shorting out. The technician fixed them and showed me that one of the fixtures was controlled by a reset button on a circuit breaker outlet. He also recommended and installed a whole-house surge protector, which solved the problem of the plethora of surge protectors we are accumulating. The tech was very polite, knowledgeable, and businesslike, and he finished his work in about 90 minutes. It was positive.
They fixed some electrical issues we had in and outside and installed new recessed lighting 20 feet high with switches. The guys were very professional and knowledgeable.
They installed recessed lighting in my home office or study. It was easy to setup an appointment, up front reasonable flat-fee pricing, prompt and professional, great work, and no hidden costs. I plan to use them again.
