Reviews for Gaithersburg wiring installation and concealing professionals
John S.
I needed Verizon FiOS cabling installed on a wall that didn't have FiOS wiring run to it prior to that. The guys worked very efficiently and definitely knew what they were doing. They were very professional and were just nice guys that were very competent and experienced. Would definitely hire them again.

John did a great job installing my carbon monoxide detector which was wired to an exhaust fan built into my garage wall. On the first trip to my house he quickly figured out the unit I bought wasn't compatible with my exhaust fan so he found the right unit for me to buy online and he came back 2 weeks later to install. Price was reasonable and will use services again.

Great work quality: Steve and his sons installed 4 fans, 10 led pod lights, 2 chandeliers and 3 outdoor outlets for our 1970's home. They took care of the new wiring, new switch boxes as needed, any fan / chandelier setup and the installation. During the process, they helped disconnect our indoor electrical outlets from switches, which was driving us crazy. They masterfully worked with our vaulted ceilings. Everything has been working great (and looks great) since they did all this for us about ten days ago. Great value: Steve's pricing for any materials he provided (pod lights, switches, boxes, outlets) was very reasonable. In fact, his overall quote for the whole job was a great value! Going above and beyond: Steve and his sons were very mindful of our furniture, rugs and floors. They covered these up while working in a room and vacuumed after themselves, put everything back, it was great! Chandelier setup was no easy task, one of these was a (heavy) family heirloom with a separate chain/canopy kit and a yet separate pendant kit. They put the whole thing together. Similarly, the new chandelier we got for a high ceiling required many little decorative pieces to be put together. Steve did it all, so now we don't have to get a tall ladder to do it ourselves. Much appreciated! Punctuality / timeliness: Steve and his sons showed up when they said they would, which was wonderful for planning our day. Steve initially estimated the job could take two full days (which sounded fair to us), but they were able to finish the whole thing in half the time, it was amazing. Professionalism / responsiveness: Steve was accessible by Thumbtack, texts and phone calls, and got back to us very quickly whenever we had a question. I highly recommend Steve and his company for any electrical work. Thank you again Steve for the amazing job!
