Our 1925 house had a variety of old and inefficient ceiling lights/fixtures. When I began discussing their replacement with
Portland Lighting Companies Provider Name Locked
he became very enthusiastic. Even though
Portland Lighting Companies Provider Name Locked
had done an amazing job with our attic several years ago, I had no idea how much he knew about lighting.
Portland Lighting Companies Provider Name Locked
has extensive knowledge of state of the art lighting. He has read the literature exhaustively and conducted his own demanding tests.
Portland Lighting Companies Provider Name Locked
has a blog on which he discusses lighting and especially
Portland Lighting Companies Provider Name Locked
lighting, highlighting its economic and environmental benefits. Every light required a custom installation since all the junction boxes were either too small or too recessed for the lights. He did a fantastic job of custom fitting each light and in the case of one doing a great patch job on the ceiling where he had to cut in a new junction box. I have never had a contractor who was so passionate about the benefits these lights offer and who was willing to work for such reasonable rates.

sees the installation of the lights as a public service and to get the word out prices his work accordingly. For example, four of the lights were in the $35-38 price range.

installed each fixture for about $27. If I had used another contractor, just about any electrician would have charged my about $90 hour plus the cost of the light. The total price of $400 included the 5 lights and the installation.

They were great. Mitika (owner of the company) came the day I asked for a bid. He parceled out the portions my neighbors would pay if they chose to share the expense. The drawings and numbers were very easy to share with my neighbors. He even added an option for one neighbor to have a portion of his fence (that took of from my property line) redone to match.
The workers were great, personable and helpful, and creative in designing a special gate for me to honor my three children. They worked through awful March weather, and offered to stop work to spare what little grass was left in the mud. But they finished the job on time, and cleaned up and hauled off debris (twice to minimize the load in my driveway), and made my grass as good as can be until the rains stop!
One neighbor's yard drops off about three feet from mine, and they had concerns about the look on their side. After all the work was done, Matika and Ovi came back on a Saturday, looked and talked it over with both families, and changed a few boards to make the look better for my neighbors. I felt that was above and beyond! They never asked for any additional money for time or mud or rain!
I can not recommend

highly enough! And my fence is simply beautiful - elegant and solid and a joy to look at.

and crew were fabulous. They were extremely responsive to our calls and emails, and the work was done quickly and on time.
Portland Lighting Companies Provider Name Locked
was amazingly friendly, and so helpful in sharing tips and tools for the part of the work we did ourselves. He was accomodating in making the changes we asked for along the way. He was always on time, and constantly communicated with us about what was coming next. The crew was great about cleaning up at the end of each day. It was the best experience we could have hoped for. We appreciated that we were able to find a company that let us do some of the work ourselves, and supported us in doing that, so that we were able to afford the remodel.

We had a complete kitchen remodel with walls taken out. They took an old, dark, cramped, 50's-sized space that had been kind of remodeled sometime in the 80's and turned it into a light, airy and big contemporary kitchen that we are very happy with.
We had planned this remodel for a few years and received bids from several contractors, but Ed
Portland Lighting Companies Provider Name Locked
was the first person we met who gave us the confidence we needed to move forward with the project. He is a cabinet maker which allowed us to get exactly what we wanted because he could manipulate cabinet size to the space that we had to work with.
Ed really understands what can and can't be done to a space, almost at first glance. He was able to look at what we wanted and the space we had and come up with a working solution that gave us what we wanted, something the other contractors were unable to do.
Ed was patient with our questions, he demonstrated subject matter expertise in all areas of construction, he stuck to his original cost proposal, and he completed the project in half the time other contractors had estimated.
Ed and his team operate with the highest degree of personal integrity and pride in workmanship. Overall we had a very positive experience working with Ed and we would not hesitate to work with them again for another remodel project.

Autumn was pleasant, professional and thorough. We walked around both the inside and outside of the house, me asking questions and him offering advice and options. I really appreciated the creativity and frankness of his responses. I look forward to working with him on actual projects.

They're always on time, under or on budget and do great work. The only problem we've had in three jobs is that they didn't bring enough parts for part of one job and it was another few weeks before they could come back. This was a very minor portion of one job.

I highly recommend them.

did a great job. They were very professional, very helpful and very efficient. It was a big job and they were able to complete it all very quickly. I will hire them again for any future electric work.

Amazing! We had some botched work done by another electrician, and one highly rated on Angie's List at that, which needed to be repaired. Also, we had discovered an extensive system of knob-and-tube wiring up in the attic, poorly-spliced and covered with insulation. We had three electricians come out and give an estimate on it; but
Portland Lighting Companies Provider Name Locked
at
Portland Lighting Companies Provider Name Locked
seemed far more knowledgeable and insightful. He also advised that I could move some of the attic floorboards and insulation out of the way of the wiring, to save a good chunk of money on the job.
When the service was performed,

&
Portland Lighting Companies Provider Name Locked
showed up right on time, and got the conduit issues sorted out, and half the k&t wiring replaced in a day. When I got home, I took a quick spin through the attic: I couldn't believe how much wiring they had replaced, and how well they had done it. They also the place very clean, which was a nice surprise from working with other contractors.
Day two: They finished up the k&t on the other side of the house, met with the inspector for a successful inspection, and since we had a bit of spare time scheduled with them, we decided to have them put in a new light fixture box over our (formerly dark) dining room table. At every step they were polite, punctual, and performed exceptional work. We'll be sure to use

in the future for subsequent electrical needs.

Well.
Portland Lighting Companies Provider Name Locked
from
Portland Lighting Companies Provider Name Locked
answered my questions, pointed out some options, and made sure that the lights worked before he left. He checked that the 2nd switch on the circuit was "dummied" out, which is what I asked that he do. He even attempted to reconfigure one of the fixtures to better match the rectangular junction box, but then put the fixture back the way it was when I decided that I wanted it that way.

We had a squirrel and rat problem in our attic/crawl space,
and we hired
Portland Lighting Companies Provider Name Locked
to clean up the mess, find and plug the entrance holes (after
a professional exterminator had completely failed), and redo all the
insulation.
Portland Lighting Companies Provider Name Locked
proposed to install a
drop-down ladder for easier access, put in plywood flooring and
Portland Lighting Companies Provider Name Locked
lighting to
make the space useable, replace a noisy and inefficient bathroom fan, and redo
all the tangled wiring. We are delighted
with the result, even though it turned out to be a bigger project than we
originally planned.
Portland Lighting Companies Provider Name Locked
is a fastidious perfectionist, for whom sloppy
workmanship is not just unprofessional but downright immoral. His flooring is the sturdiest (and certainly
the most level) in our old house. He is
constantly reconsidering the best way to do the job, and is unsatisfied with
anything short of an A+ performance. He
cleans up meticulously at the end of every day.
He is man of scrupulous integrity (he found an 1888 silver
dollar on one of the rafters, apparently left by a superstitious builder; we
told him to keep it, but he absolutely refused). He insists on sticking to his original bid,
even when the job has taken far longer than anyone anticipated.
He loves to explain what he is doing, and I have learned a lot
from him. He has taught me clever
methods for repairing damaged sheet-rock, tricks for installing electrical
boxes when there is no accessible stud for an anchor, wiring
Portland Lighting Companies Provider Name Locked
lighting, and
leveling an uneven floor.

was a pleasure to work with. My only regret is that I feel we exploited
him.
