Went very well; electrician worked with the plumber to get the electrical work done when plumber needed; he explained the issues to me and gave me options; cleaned up after himself; I have had no problems with the water heater since the install

John Smith

The work went well and i appreciate the prompt response considering the potential safety hazard with faulty wiring in my kitchen. John was prompt, professional, and his prices were reasonable. A good honest electrician who was able to provide excellent service. I will use his services again.

Tyler Marshall

We have a crawl space and the electrician worked diligently figuring out our issues. We were very thankful that when John left all outlets and outside lighting were in good working order. Overall very courteous and in layman’s terms explained why we were having complications.

Jenny Cane

It was a wonderful experience! John provided excellent customer service from his first response via email, to his final exit from our home. We rarely experience such excellence in customer service and highly recommend John to others in need of electrical work!
