I called Dale and spoke to him and discovered he is as or more experienced with electrical work than he is with furniture - furniture work was of no interest to me. I had some serious issues with three kitchen fluorescent ballasts and two more ballasts in a master bedroom closet. And the socket for a bulb in a 4-bulb ceiling fan had been destroyed and the thought of disassembling it just to fix that socket was overwhelming me. The closet ballast transformers were making unbearable noises for 15+ years and the kitchen ballasts were just dead because they don't last too many years. A project like these would take me a long time in the kitchen and the closet would be impossible with my arthritis. I sought someone I could trust, who could charge a fair price, and do a great job. And in these areas Dale met and exceeded all expectations. He was prompt, courteous, kind, efficient, professional and personable. I 100% trusted him and we became fast friends and shared our faiths and a bit of our life story briefly -- my fault for wanting to engage him like this - Dale remained singularly focused on completing the job and doing it perfectly. I unhesitatingly intend to ask him to do other tasks in the future and recommend him to others for any task that requires a master technician which i believed he was in these areas and he confirmed it. Just ask him if he feels comfortable doing something and if he has done it before and if he says he has, hire him and don't even blink an eye. Dale, thank you for helping my family and house with the very annoying and difficult problems. You were and remain a Godsend. I appreciate you very much!
