"How many holes did we have to cut in the wall? 2!!! If that is not a job well-done, I don't know what is. James is great! He went above and beyond to get my project complete over this memorial day weekend. So here are my top 5 greatest reasons to hire James:
1.) Knowledgeable: Out of all 5 electricians to come look at my house and give me a quote (all from Thumbtack), James was the only one to even look in the attic and crawlspace to get the full scope of the job. He told me exactly how hard it would be and what needed to happen. James also carefully explained what he was thinking to get it done so I understood exactly what needed to happen. This guy knows his stuff. James's knowledge extends from the technical mapping of every outlet to which tool is right for each part of the job. He even thought to buy small-tooth saw bits so we could have a cleaner cut on my plaster wall. Knowledge like that is why I could make a quick easy patch and I recommend James for sure. He customizes your whole experience to your house for every piece of equipment, space and timeline.
2.) Care and Quality: James took time to explain everything he was doing for me, and would answer any question I had. At the end of the project I know how to add an extra outlet myself and I know how my whole house works! I know the ins and outs of every wire and where it goes. James is a patient teacher and took time to give me a lesson on everything, which as a homeowner is invaluable for my time and money! You can't pay for these kinds of custom lessons. Additionally, James made sure my pregnant wife was comfortable during this entire process, kept the fridge on and made it as convenient as possible for us to be without some electricity for any span of time. He would often suggest we work one way in order to let my wife use the Air conditioning in a room during 80 degree weather. James was always there for me, no matter how long I wanted to keep going. For two days James stayed until 1am just to help make sure everything got done on my timeline! James also went to the store with me twice to make sure we had the correct materials.
3) NO HOLES IN MY WALLS: Seriously, to only have to drywall two spots after rewiring an entire house is a blessing. Easy clean up afterwards too. I appreciate this to no end. I have had guys in the past cut giant holes with no regard of how much time it would take to fix. James was careful, found the studs and allowed for overlap in the cut. I can cut a piece with a paper overlap easy now.
4) Brought my house to code: James is expert. He brought my house to code, where it was seriously out of compliance with state standards. He organized my breaker box so it is easy to understand and took time to troubleshoot and label everything for future use.
5) Customization and Price: James took time to walk through everything with me and ask where I wanted new fixtures or outlets. He asked where I wanted switches and lights and made it all happen. His price beat everyone's by $2000 dollars minimum, and he was totally fine negotiating. Best of all, James named the price and any customization was included. I added all sorts of fixtures and outlets for NO ADDITIONAL CHARGE. Flat pricing.
I highly recommend James. I can't say enough good about him."
