Lighting Installation

The first thing which strikes you when you meet John is he is very friendly and he tells you what to do and what not to do for the project …I had to install close to 20 odd recessed lights and few dimmers John was very responsive and his work was of high quality and affordable when I compared it with other contractors . He did clean up most of the dirt and he did few other things also with the recessed lighting .. anytime any day he would be my go to person for electrical stuff ..

Lighting Installation

I highly recommend John! He has done numerous projects for me including new lighting, new thermostats, a large bathroom mirror and I have numerous other projects I will be using him for in the future as well. He was also kind enough to come by on his day off at the very last minute to help fix an issue left by a previous contractor so that my wallpaper could be installed without delay. HE IS THE BEST and will be go to from here on out!

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    We do discounts for large jobs.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    The client tells me what exactly they are looking for and I listen and then repeat back the results they are looking for. When they agree, then I start my work.

  • How did you get started doing this type of work?

    I started as an apartment maintenance man in Bellevue, then residential and commercial construction, then joined the IBEW Local 46 to do electrical work, then went on my own after I amassed enough tools.

Not what you’re looking for?

No problem: we have pros for every job.
