Circuit Breaker Panel or Fuse Box Repair

I had a great experience with Rick! He not only reached out to me the day before my appointment to confirm, he was even 10 minutes early! He showed me the issue with my breaker and gave me options for repair. He was personable and professional and was able to repair my crackling breaker box fairly quickly...oh and he totally cleaned up after (like brought in his own vacuum!). Great value, great work, I would definitely recommend him!

Switch and Outlet Installation

Rick is a first class electrician. He responded to my inquiry within an hour. Even thought it was late afternoon and very hot he came same day. Fished a wall, added wiring and a wall switch for fan , Then he found a huge mistake from previous work ( not his) and fixed it. Very nice guy, veteran ( thank you for your service) and family man. I will absolutely use Rick again

Electrical and Wiring Repair

I don't normally write reviews but Richard was so helpful that I had to take the time to leave a positive review. Our halloween decorations arrived and my 5-year old was jumping up and down in excitement but when we went to plug it in... whoops... no power. Something was wrong with our exterior outlet. So I submitted my service request on Thumbtack and Richard responded within minutes. But prior to jumping at scheduling a same-day service that would have cost me money, he had me trouble-shoot a couple things (over the phone). And within minutes he had pin-pointed my issue and I was able to fix it myself. I give him 5-stars for honesty and I would highly recommend him because my experience is proof to me that he is an extremely helpful and honest individual. Thank you Richard.
