WOW! Seriously I couldn't imagine better service. This is no joke. We had Nima come downtown to our new loft and he did an amazing job setting up our TV wall mount and theater system. He was on time, kind and very thorough with is work. He is truly an expert and totally knocked it out of the park. This is an inspired review, know that his 5 star ratting and his list of awesome reviews is no joke. Nima is the man and he can handle all of your TV, wall mount, home theater system needs. Thank you Nima!!

Martin did an excellent job hooking up my man cave. He installed a projector and screen and even gave me great advice on a complementing sound system. Martin went above and beyond during the install, including accompanying me to Home Depot to pick up some missing cords and pieces for the install. I highly recommend Martin for your home theater install!

Gabriel and Noe came to my house to install new 2 ceiling fans in the bedrooms. They surveyed to see what they needed to complete the job and then went to get the parts. Even though the bedrooms have attic access it is a tight squeeze. They were able to work around it and get the job done; at a very reasonable price too. I would definitely recommend them for any installation or electrical needs.

Javier contacted me quite quickly after I submitted my request and offered a very competitive quote. He was able to come hook up the receiver for my home theater within a few hours after that. Polite, courteous and knowledgeable of the work that needed to be done, he was also very thorough and quite patient in ensuring that I understood how to now use the receiver once he left me to my own devices even making sure the notes I took were accurate. I will definitely be contacting him again once we buy the subwoofer that will compliment the home theater in our home. I will also refer him to anyone I know who needs assistance in this area. So happy with the service and the whole experience here today. Thank you, Javier.

Mario is in one word - OUTSTANDING!! I contacted him based on his numerous 5-star reviews. I hired Mario after speaking with him as he was able to articulate what I needed to complete my project in a timely manner, under budget, and with the end result nothing short of beautiful. I don't understand how Mario charges so little for his services -- he seems on the low side, and so was skeptical when I received his bid. I contacted four other contractors, all of whom were much much higher, plus and more importantly, did not offer the quality of service that Mario offered. I had recessed lighting installed in townhome with a couple of issues that needed to be addressed to complete the work properly. Mario was able to quickly troubleshoot the issues, perform the installation, and he even brought along a painter to plaster and finish the area so well that all I need to do now is paint. Working with Mario has been the best experience I've had with an electrician as he is honest, well-spoken, and works his butt off to make his clients beyond happy with the end product. Thanks to Mario, I have found my electrician for all future projects, and will refer him to friends and family in the area. He is a rare find, and I feel so fortunate I found him on this site.

We had several electrical projects that needed to be done. We needed a couple of ceiling fans installed plus wiring and installation for carriage lights and a level 2 charger. While Alan's bid wasn't the lowest, he was definitely the most qualified. He was prompt, knowledgeable, courteous and professional. He took great pride in every aspect of his work which was evident with the finished product. As a construction project manager I have worked with many contractors. Alan is at the top of my list for future electrical projects. I highly recommend his services!

Houman came to evaluate my project for an IKEA kitchen installation on a short notice. He was very accommodating when scheduling an appointment, called from the road about very short delay and arrived on time. His estimate was not the lowest, but he said it was negotiable. He approached the project with professionalism and the desire to meet my needs. Even though he didn't do my project (as I chose an IKEA contractor), I was impressed by him.

My experience was great. Four ceiling fans were installed without a problem. One fan was replacing a light fixture and had to be centered on a 2nd floor ceiling and it looks great. The installation of a patio was fan looked so good that I had him come back and remove and correctly install a patio fan that was done by someone else.

Finally finished an eyesore we’d been staring at for months! Replaced baseboards after putting in new flooring. Punctual, great work, even made 2 trips to pick up supplies. No input needed as to what was required to compete the job which made this stress free. We will definitely use again to complete projects in our home!!

Hamo arrived on time and installed an outdoor outlet in short order and went through a wall to connect to power. He was neat and listened to my requests. It was very hot while he worked but it didn't slow him down. I will work with him again.

Our 20 year old water heater was starting to leak, so I figured it was time to replace it, and put the job on Thumbtack. Rudy made me an offer I couldn't refuse. He was very good with updating me about when he was going to arrive. We met at a Home Depot near my house to pick up the water heater, and the installation went smoothly. He gave me a list of recommendations - things that he wasn't able to do himself, so it wasn't just to get more business for himself.

I needed to run some wiring from an existing garage installation to a new outdoor junction box for a security camera. Ruben came to the job site within two hours, assessed the situation, and had the wiring completed quickly. His work was professional, quick, and courteous. I am glad I hired him.

Cedric and his wife are a great team. They showed up happy and ready to help. They assessed the situation and helped us to figure out what would be the best resolution to fixing our ceiling fans. While at our home they helped us explore and select some smart light switches so that we could turn lights on while we're away so that our dog wouldn't have to be in the dark. Overall, I would say the experience was like having a friend do some electrical work in our home. I would definitely call them again in the future.

Everything went well with Sam at ONBOARD.IT.TECH. He responded very quickly and got me an appointment within two days. It took just a couple hours to install my home theater set up, and he made sure it was perfect before he left, testing every part of the projector, and making sure the cables were hidden properly and nicely. I would recommend him to anyone!
