Vince did a great job! When I contacted him and left a message, he responded within minutes. He showed up for an estimate on time and made us feel comfortable with his knowledge and expertise for what we needed done. On the day of installation, Vince arrived on time, was super friendly and worked the entire day. He installed a breaker box (upgrade from fuse box), installed an outlet outside for us, but the highlight of my day was when he made my front lawn lamp post light up again after 8+ years!! He did such a great job and cleaned up after. We can't wait to have him back to do recess lighting for us! Thanks Vince ( and his lovely wife Jen)!Mar 29, 2018Verified

- How did you get started doing this type of work?I originally worked for Eagle Electric, we were contracted under LaMantia Builders back in the late 1980’s. The first job I ever did was a 3 way switch for an elderly woman. The switch had not function for approximately 7 years. I remove the broken switch and installed a new switch. When I flipped the switch on, the lady’s eyes and face just lit up. She was so incredibly happy, as if the heavens had opened, and was shining the light down on her. What a great feeling to do that for someone, at that point, I knew I wanted to be an electrician. True story.
- Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?A customer bought a two unit building in foreclosure. It needed a complete pipe and rewire. The Inspector gave her two weeks to finish, or she would face a $500 fine for every day passed the deadline. I complete the whole job, passed inspection, all before the deadline, at a price that beat everyone else. Needless to say, she was very happy, and even tipped me $200, and a nice dinner.
- What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?Whatever you do, do not take electricity for granted. If something is wrong, have it checked, and repaired. Also, don’t pay someone by the hour to do the work. Ask for an upfront cost for the whole project. Sorry to say, but there’s a lot of shady workers who will “milk” a job at an hourly rate. If you don’t feel comfortable having a worker come to your house, than ask a neighbor, friend, or family member to be there with you. Remember, the more information you provide about what is wrong, or what you need, the better it is to analyze and fix your electrical problem. Reviews tell a lot about a person, and their work, so take the time to read them. Getting the lowest price should not be your most important factor, especially when it comes to hiring an electrician, because honestly, you don’t want to be cutting corners. Trust me.
