    Rene is efficient and professional. He did a fantastic job putting an outlet in over our fireplace. His quote was fair and he stuck to it. I'd hire him again for any other electrical work we might need in the future.

    Rene did an excellent job installing my two Hunter ceiling fans with lights and two dimmer switches in my condo. They brought my place to life and added value to the property. Thanks Rene!

    Great work. No hassle price which I like. It is always a good sign when a contractor gives you a price for a service instead of an hourly rate. New electrical wiring and fan boxes installed and work great. Thank you.

    RC Electrical Services is an excellent contractor for performing many different kinds of home improvement projects. I have used RC Electrical's services on 3 separate projects, and I have been a customer for over 2 years. Each project was bigger and more complex than the other project. In ALL instances RC Electrical showed advanced expertise and great innovation. They are also very through, clean and organized after the completion of the project. Here is what they have done for us: 1) Improvement of the electrical structured cabling of our electrical outlets. 2) Installation of Closed Circuit TV Security Camera system. 3) Rewiring of the Kitchen Lights and kitchen cabinet lights. I am also going to use their services to do entire wiring for the basement of our house including power, data and multimedia (sound system wiring). Thank you so much for your professionalism RC Electrical.

    Rene was a great electrical contractor. His work, and the way he conducted himself on the job site, and in public, was nothing but polite and professional. We hired Rene to wire our basement. He installed 5 circuits worth of recessed lights, outlets, GFI outlets and 3-way switches. He also cleaned up the sloppiness the home builder had left in the mechanical room. He was always on time, and the inspector even complemented on the quality of his work. He said, "You can tell when someone knows what they are doing, the work is very clean and makes my job as an inspector very easy." As a home owner, that is the kind of thing you want to hear when you are having people do work in the biggest investment of your life. I will be recommending RC Electrical Service to all of my friends and use him for all future work.
