    Excellent Service
    Our power went out in part of the house. James was extremely nice and was able to come out the day I called. He found that it was a simple fix to the circuit breaker and showed me how to fix it in the future. I will absolutely use them in for all of our electrical needs.

    Switch and Outlet Repair
    Verified Review
    James fixed the outlets in my garage and an exterior outlet that I installed incorrectly. After 20 minutes of resolving the issue, he spent an additional thirty minutes teaching me about my panel, how to install additional outlets, and common reasons for outlet shortages. James is a stud at what he does and I highly recommend him. The service greatly outweighed the cost by far. He doesn't take advantage of people.
