Twisted did an amazing job setting up my surround sound and switching all the wires for our TV/speakers from one side of the fireplace to the other, and also putting in an extra outlet behind the bedroom TV to hide those wires. I had a lot of questions for Ron, especially about how I could bring the cost down, and he was very helpful and patient with every question I had. We reached a good solution I was comfortable with, and he did a great job with the work. Couldn't recommend him more. Hire him!

I am very handy (thanks to my dad), but leave the electrical work to the professionals. Norh was incredibly nice and maintained excellent communication about availability, scheduling, and pricing. He also looked at another project idea of mine and gave very sound advice including different options that may cost me a bit less. He also answered my electric questions clearly without talking over my head. I'd hire him again in a heartbeat.

Can't say enough good things about HasProz and my tech Golden. I got at least 5 estimates for my home theatre install (projector, electric screen, surround sound) and by far HasProz was the most reasonable and easy to work with to get within my budget. From Golden's initial free consult/walk through which he took over 30min to take measurements and plan the layout (which others would just come for 5 minutes and say they could do it without measuring or taking notes....this was not an easy install by any account....to doing the install and taking his time to do it right. Always on time and called to say he's on the way etc, it's all the little things that make these the guys to go to for your home AV installations. The end result was spectacular and it even got my wife's approval! :) referring him to family and will use Golden again for any AV projects around the house.

Harrison is the bomb. On time, helpful, neat, and adept at problem solving. Did I mention that he’s a perfectionist? Also, he answers your most idiotic technophobe questions with aplomb. CJ his helper is great, too. I now have 3 working TVs surround sound Netflix and amazon prime. What more could a girl want?

Darwin was honest , upfront and timely. He gave me a fair price and good sound advice without trying to jack up he price so high that I could not do the work needed. I feel he is very honest and he did such good work in a short amount of time that I already know I will hire him for further repairs to my home. A plus is he was very good with my 3 dogs!!! They liked him too!

I had gotten the quote from a lot of professionals, who were nice to talk to and promptly provided me with their quotes, and I was down to finalizing one out of two guys - Certified AVE and Pro Installations, I decided to go with pro installations, because he offered me huge discount, worked around my schedule, even during after business hours and was very prompt to reply. the two tv's that he installed, along with surround sound speakers and a floating shelf for second speaker system look really nice and he even gave away the moldings for free. and after the job, I found out that two guys are brothers.

Hired Christian to install a wireless speaker system for my great room and kitchen. After much deliberation on my part and information on his part we settled on three Sonos play 1 speakers and a sub. He was able to do everything next day after I made my decision and he absolutely killed it. The system sounds amazing configured per his recommendations and the install is as slick as you could ask for. He can do electrical which is awesome and everything else was clean and polished looking. In less than two weeks I have had him mount a 65in tv and he did a fantastic job with that and now install and configure my Sonos system. I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone. If you want an expert install at a very responsible and honest price you're wasting your time looking elsewhere. Save yourself the trouble and hire him. I assure you, you won't be disappointed. I have every intention of having install my surround sound downstairs and any other AV needs I have I will take to him.

I hired Lyndell to install a shower surround kit in my master bathroom and ended up hiring him to do so much more! He was able to repair some pesky woodpecker damage on my chimney chase. He noticed some loose cedar siding and repaired that as well. The chimney looks great and is better than the original construction. He came in under budget and was very thorough with his work. Couldn't be happier. The shower kit and door kit installation went just a smoothly. Lyndell performed a very "clean demolition, made some structural repairs and installed the shower kit with a high level of craftsmanship and care for my home. The shower surround also came in under budget and looks (and works) great! I'm very pleased with the work he performed at my house. Side note: take the time to get to know Lyndell...he is capable of more than you think. His background is amazing and his work ethic is refreshing. I'm planning on hiring Lyndell for future projects at my new home.

Ivaylo was very professional and worked hard to create a solution that fit our budget. Specifically we moved into a new home that had been previously wired for cable and sound in a customary way that was highly outdated and didn't function with modern equipment (e.g. comcast xfinity). Ivaylo presented us with different options to bring the house up-to-date, and disclosed the pricing for each. After discussing the options with him and choosing one, he worked hard to execute and deliver exactly what we asked for. I highly recommend him for any job (whether simple or complicated) that involves home technology (a/v, cable, home theater systems, etc.)

I recently had a smart TV/video game/surround sound system set up and installed by Williams home theater and everything was great. Steven (who is the owner) not only helped me decide on a placement that I'd personally like now and I to the future but also answered all of my questions and helped me navigate my new smart TV and remote. I'm pretty tech savvy myself, I don't normally need much guidance but even I learned a few tricks. I was a bit nervous choosing an installation company because it was my first time; maybe I got lucky, but I couldn't be happier 2 months later. Highly recommend!

So glad I called double vision after the crappy job another company had done. They set up a complete security system and took the time to explain how to use it (I'm totally clueless when it comes to technology) I look forward to having you gentlemen come back to install my tv and sound system

He is a former house inspector. This is an extremely valuable perspective when you consider making changes to your home. He is thoughtful and measured. He completed several extensive projects in my home: replacing wood flooring in my entranceway with tile, refacing my fireplace surround where he demolished existing large boulder stones and replaced with sleek flat tile and even suggested I lower the hearth to the floor for a more modern look. He shrunk the footprint of an oversized kitchen island that involved moving cabinetry and plumbing and preparing the base for a new top and he helped me redo my powder room and replaced my '80s mirrored cabinet fronts with custom stained wood. I am happy and very pleased with the work he has done on my home. He made a number of suggestions about how to maintain my home going forward. I appreciated this expertise.

Frank has been a jack-of-all-trades for me several times. Twice when I moved he helped set up my surround sound system and hang my TV. When he realized I was inept at these types of projects, he even offered to go with me to the store and help me pick out the proper materials I needed to help him with a few of my projects. My house was strangely shaped and Frank came up with several creative solutions to help make things work. He also provided invaluable advice when it came to other projects I had to do when I moved. Frank is wonderful and you should use him!

Patrick did a great job updating 2 shower valves and rerouting sink plumbing for a kitchen remodel. He even updated some piping to code that was not part of the original work scope. He was very helpful in recommending the right valves and future maintenance. Patrick was also very careful with his tile cuts as that was are only access point. He made a perfect cut that is easy to patch without damaging any other surrounding tiles. Highly recommended and definitely will be my Go To plumber from now on. I even have him coming back for some addition work.
