Bo did a great job on a few different wiring projects, including running new wire for and installing a new 240v outlet. He was also able to troubleshoot and fix a very odd wiring issue we had. He was responsive and super easy to work with, and I will definitely call him for my next project.

Wes is really great. He installed/wired a range hood and changed out all my switches/outlets. Everything was perfect, his prices are fair, and he does a great job. I highly recommend his services.

Slable installed 9 ethernet jacks for my company. We realized only after moving in that our new office space was not wired, and Slable was able to come on short notice and did a fantastic job. The team was extremely professional and completed the work on budget and on schedule. Their work is very neat, all of the jacks are labeled, and they cleaned up very well afterwards. I highly recommend Slable for ethernet wiring and would definitely hire them again in a heartbeat.

Jim was very professional and provided quality job. He found the perfect way to install the Cat6a cable which we recently upgraded for our internet service. It's very nice and clean with wires hidden. I highly recommend using JIM Contractor Inc.

Excellent customer service! I had two pendants installed in my bedroom ceiling. Pablo was incredibly skillful with drilling and running wire, measuring, sealing, and cleaning up the work site. It’s like the pendants were always there. I plan to hire Skylight Renovations again very soon.

Will was great for our EV outlet installation in the garage. Our circuit panel was in our basement so it wasn’t easy getting the wires from the basement to the garage, but they did it seamlessly. He was very clear with his method and completed the job in a very reasonable time. I’d highly recommend him for any electrical needs.

I was very impressed by Ken’s responsiveness and knowledge, jumping on a zoom call to diagnose an issue just a few minutes after I submitted the request. He was out the next morning to do the work, which involved wiring + cable/internet expertise + drilling through the exterior and installing a new box for a coax outlet. Would absolutely recommend!

Tldr: I will absolutely hire him again and you should contact him. Full review as follows: I had a home theater install. This included: A projector A receiver A motorized screen A set of speakers A universal remote An extra hdmi port I wanted everything to be hidden and all wires to be concealed as much as possible. I contacted other companies on thumbtack and each one wanted an exorbitant amount of money and some didn't even return my calls. Sayeed saw my request and we setup a time to chat. We spoke in length over the phone about what I wanted, I sent him photos and setup a time to come over the next day. The following day, Sayeed showed up on time if not early to discuss the layout and finalize everything that I wanted. He made a suggestion of installing in-ceiling speakers (instead of my satellites that I owned) and will include it in the price. I agreed and we setup a time to perform the install. The day of the install Sayeed showed up on time. With everything he needed. He did a quality job and did not rush, my house was built in the 1950s, so it has its quirks when it comes to construction and electrical. This was not an issue for Sayeed he was able to navigate everything. He kept saying "there is always a solution" Once complete the following was done: Receiver, Apple tv and universal remote hub all hidden in the backroom All cabling hidden behind the walls Projector screen mounted Projector mounted 4 outlets installed One hdmi in port installed. Hard wired ethernet installed with extra. It all looks fantastic, everything works as it should. The only criticism I will give is that I would have liked to would have been to hide the ir blaster a little more and have the speakers calibrated with a spl meter... But, this is a small thing and should not take away from the positives. If you are looking for someone to install your home theater or possibly other electrical work and have them truly work their heart out, Sayeed owner of Zago Data Wire is your guy and company.

Khalil and Andre were absolutely fantastic! They were very responsive, efficient, and professional. Hired them to wire my house for ethernet with access point and drops. Khalil was able to come out to price a quote and then completed the job the next week. He and Andre showed up on time, communicated throughout the installation process, especially when they ran into unexpected problems due to the layout of my house. Khalil was very knowledgeable, and even mentioned how I could save some money on the project. Overall, I am very impressed with Khalil and would hire again in a heartbeat. Highly recommend!
