showed up promptly everyday as promised. Worked hard and worked with me to ensure that everything would meet my needs. He made suggestions, listened to my questions, and more importantly provided solutions to any of my concerns. He was straight forward, with no surprises during the project.
It is clear he knew what he was doing, what the codes required, and what will work to ensure the best possible result.

"Provided a free onsite estimate. Came in on time and on budget. Cleaned up all of the work area prior to leaving. Very friendly and easy to work with. Even offered to change some other light bulbs and match a few of our old cans to the new ones without increasing the quoted amount of time to do the additional work. Honest, easy and fair. You can hardly ever put those 3 words together anymore. Well done!

"It went great, it was a lot of "minor items" that in no way did i know how to fix. They were great people to work with, and fixed everything perfectly. They also advised me on future inprovements that may be needed (my electrical breaker box is full and will need to be replaced if I make additions to it). They also pointed out issues that were done by the previous homeowner that I can look into fixing in the future (they didnt wire the sump pump to its own breaker--it had a few other items on it--not up to code). They explained everything they did, what was wrong with it, and how they were going to fix it. I will definately use them in the future for any type of minor or major project."

"We met with
Elgin Electricians Provider Name Locked
and went through the basement for his initial assessment. Our next meeting was with
Elgin Electricians Provider Name Locked
, the framer, and the electrician to review how we wanted everything laid out and configured. Our next meeting was with
Elgin Electricians Provider Name Locked
and the plumber to discuss the bathroom layout and review the roughed in plumber. We met
Elgin Electricians Provider Name Locked
one more time to finalize what work would be done by us during the remodeling since we had free labor available (ie. son without a job at the time). Our next meeting with
Elgin Electricians Provider Name Locked
we discussed more options about the finished basement including flooring, ceilings, bath, and additional work to be performed elsewhere in the house. We met with the electrician one more time to review the upstairs work with the light fixtures and ceiling fan replacement. With this initial agreement
Elgin Electricians Provider Name Locked
developed an estimate and price breakout with a payment plan. We took about a week to review everything and then we signed the contract to allow the work to proceed.

Elgin Electricians Provider Name Locked
handled the building permit with
Elgin Electricians Provider Name Locked
County. Since the house is a geodesic dome, it took additional time with the county to explain the plans and get final approval.

We had to clear the basement of all items and
Elgin Electricians Provider Name Locked
provided several suggestions for storage locations. We completed the removal of the items from the basement.
Elgin Electricians Provider Name Locked
arranged for the framing material to be delivered and work began around Jul 11. The framing was completed in less than a week. The family decided to change the wall to the laundry room and the closet on the end of the hall, which was handled nicely by
Elgin Electricians Provider Name Locked
and the framer.

Once the framing was complete, the electrician and plumber came in to do their initial portions of the work. We asked for 3 additional electrical outlets be added in the laundry room, which was planned in without issue.

During this period we started to work with
Elgin Electricians Provider Name Locked
on the flooring and fireplace location. We changed our minds several times before settling on a split arrangement of carpet and tile.
Elgin Electricians Provider Name Locked
coordinated a meeting with the flooring company and we started the decision process of which tile, what type of carpet and finally colors. We settled on a fireplace location and met with the fireplace company to determine how it would be installed.
Elgin Electricians Provider Name Locked
and that team had several ideas and we settled on a configuration that made the most sense for the venting and desired look. Since we had previously purchased a basement door replacement, we had asked
Elgin Electricians Provider Name Locked
to install the new door since the existing steel door had rotted out.
Elgin Electricians Provider Name Locked
arranged the installation which took a portion of a day as additional cement wall tear down was required to get the frame to fit correctly. They installed the door and installed new locks which we provided. The electrician was brought in next and completed his work within 1 day working around limitations from the ceiling and optimal light placement.

Once the framing,electrical,and plumbing was complete,
Elgin Electricians Provider Name Locked
County completed their inspection. The insulation team came in and completed the full basement insulation in about 1 day. They insulated areas in the laundry room as well to make sure there was good insulation everywhere in the basement. The bathroom shower and tile work were completed during this time as well. We had to work out the final tile color and arrangement prior to work starting and
Elgin Electricians Provider Name Locked
was accommodating to our last minute adjustments.

With this complete, the drywall work began. The team worked very efficiently and were done in less than a week. The tapers and mud team were also efficient and timely and it took just over another week to complete this work. We started the painting and completed 2 primer coats as well as 2 color coats in about 2 weeks with delays for summer trips and work interruptions.

With the painting complete, the next items were bathroom fixtures, which
Elgin Electricians Provider Name Locked
and our family worked through with suggestions, fit checks, and finally a decision with some of the purchases being handled by us and the remainder by
Elgin Electricians Provider Name Locked
and team. We worked with
Elgin Electricians Provider Name Locked
on the ceiling tile selection, final tile and carpet selections.
Elgin Electricians Provider Name Locked
arranged the installations around our schedules. We also scheduled the replacement of the kitchen sliding glass doors which took less than a day with a very good team. They also replaced some of the aluminum siding (finish pieces) with the excess material from the kitchen door to clear up a few dings, nicks, and scratches. We handled the cleanup of the material from the window installation taking the scrap material to
Elgin Electricians Provider Name Locked
Recycling.

Next came the installation of the carpet and tile. While cleaning up the floor in preparation for the upcoming installation, we had a heavy rain which resulted in a leak through the basement wall. Having already completed the painting, we had to try to seal the wall from the outside. We made the first attempt by digging out the area on the outside and finding the crack. We used a product from the local home repair. We thought we had it, but the rain the following day showed a slight leak yet.
Elgin Electricians Provider Name Locked
called a local basement crack sealant expert and he came out the next day. The sealant expert used a injection method that filled the crack from within the exterior seal we had installed. It turns out our seal would have worked had we gone another 3 inches underground. With the newly injection sealed crack completed, we proceeded to do the tile and carpet installation. The tile installation had to be done in 2 shifts since the tile order was not completed on the first delivery.
Elgin Electricians Provider Name Locked
coordinated the shipment and delivery to allow the floor tile installation to complete in less than 3 days. Again an expert job getting the tile cut to the corners and walls. The tile work was matched to the walls almost exactly. The carpet went quickly in the family area and they moved to stairway to the upstairs area of the house. The carpet was installed expertly around the corners and tile pattern that had been altered slightly to work around the fireplace tile work that was required by code (
Elgin Electricians Provider Name Locked
talked to
Elgin Electricians Provider Name Locked
County to get the exact requirements).

The trim work as delivered next and we started the painting and prep work for installation. This took about another week, while the actual installation took only about 2 days. We did the final touch up after installation as we miscalculated the amount of colored versus white lengths.

The ceiling tile was delivered next along with the framing material. This portion also went very quickly despite having to work all the odd
Elgin Electricians Provider Name Locked
and trying to maximize the floor to ceiling spacing. The fitting work turned out very nicely as well as having the desired effect of a noise reducer. The effort took about 3 days overall.

The electricians came in and completed the electrical work including the phone line, antenna cable, and light fixtures. The electrician took care of all the light fixtures upstairs as well including installing a new light fixture on the exterior of the house for the basement entry.

We then completed the bathroom installation with fixtures and vanity. We had to call the plumber back into to move the water lines since the vanity we choose did not allow a straight connection of the water valves. This was accomplished in just over a day and the bathroom. The bathroom shower, sink and toilet installations went as expected. We sealed the shower tile ourselves.

We had a short period of limited activity trying to decide what to do with the closet shelves. We ultimately purchased and installed to closets worth of shelves.
Elgin Electricians Provider Name Locked
and his team installed the remaining bathroom closet shelves that had to be custom fit.
Elgin Electricians Provider Name Locked
worked with us to complete the fireplace installation including floor and wall tile surrounding the fireplace all within a couple of days of our decision on the layout. While this was happening,
Elgin Electricians Provider Name Locked
coordinated with the
Elgin Electricians Provider Name Locked
County Builder Inspector to hold his final inspection allowing full occupancy which went off without any issues.

Overall
Elgin Electricians Provider Name Locked
and his team were very accommodating in the planning, execution, final close-out phases of the project.
Elgin Electricians Provider Name Locked
made sure we got what we wanted. He made sure we met with all the contractors to discuss our desires and concerns. He made sure the work flowed smoothly while also working on other projects.
Elgin Electricians Provider Name Locked
's and his teams suggestions on products to be utilized during the project were very useful and saved us extended periods of research. The entire team was professional in the work and the final product quality is very good. I have likely left out some details of the project, but overall a job very well done. Even my granddaughter made a new friend in

"It went very well. I had
Elgin Electricians Provider Name Locked
. recently install new wiring, a switch, outlet, and a light in my 1895
Elgin Electricians Provider Name Locked
style house. He had to open up the plaster wall to complete the work and then install sheetrock and prime the wall. I was very pleased with all the work. It was a relatively small job that provided a major improvement for my tenants and me. Thank you again. The new lighting system is great. I will have future work that I would certainly consider having
Elgin Electricians Provider Name Locked
complete. His prices are fair and his work is excellent!

"The kitchen cabinets- we moved into an older home that had only a few cabinets so he helped tear out the old ones and then put in all the new ones. He also helped us order new countertops and installed that for us.

The plumbing- he put in a new sink for us. We also had our sewage back up and he helped rotor it and cleaned it all up for us. And even gave me a few helpful tips on how to help prevent it from happening and on how to keep the smell out.

Drywall repair- our house is old, so some of the plaster has chipped. He helped by patching and painting it for us. He does it all!

, came in and reviewed specs the company gave us to wire and install the in-floor heating. He gave us a few different options on where we could install the programmable thermostat and where he felt would work the best. He also simplified the electrical that was needed to connect to the power. Every step of the way, he told us what he was doing an why.
Elgin Electricians Provider Name Locked
was very professional and we are very pleased with his work. He gave us an estimate up front and the price and time came in where he estimated the job to cost. We have used
Elgin Electricians Provider Name Locked
for a couple of other electrical projects, one which included removing drywall to do the wiring. He gave us great directions on how we can finish off the drywall ourselves (he was willing to do it, but we were confident we could do the job). He recommendations left us with a wall that doesn't look like anything was done to it.

Elgin Electricians Provider Name Locked
was punctual when he came out for the estimate. He walked me through all the work that would need to be done as well as any possible problems that my job may entail due to the structure of our home. The estimate was provided in a timely manner.
The men that came to do the work were polite and friendly. They covered furniture to keep it from getting drywall dust on it. In one room there was no access to the attic, the installer worked to find a solution without having to cut into ceilings or walls that would need to be repaired. The work was completed as was promised. The installers cleaned up after they were finished. I would definitely hire
Elgin Electricians Provider Name Locked
again.

"The work performed by
Elgin Electricians Provider Name Locked
was no less than stellar.
Elgin Electricians Provider Name Locked
was exceptionally responsive to my e-mails, after my initial contact with
Elgin Electricians Provider Name Locked
on Angie's List he rearranged his schedule to come out to my home to perform a quote very quickly. He was honest and straight forward with cost, equipment, time requirements, and what the work involved. Following the quote at my home he had a proposal prepared and e-mailed to me in less than 24hrs. In addition
Elgin Electricians Provider Name Locked
recommended retailers for the equipment that I needed to purchase, this store was also a pleasure to work with. The install was performed on 11/24/09, the electricians arrived at my home right on time, and they began working immediately. They were extremely knowledgeable, and polite, they were also very easy to communicate with. The work was done quite quickly. All the installations were done in less than 6 hours, and the guys cleaned up very nicely after themselves. The quality of the work was excellent, and they were very respectful of my home. Just a few side notes of how
Elgin Electricians Provider Name Locked
went above and beyond, they made a point of trying to find a way to run the electrical wiring without damaging drywall in visible areas, this was excellent. Also, they are very LGBT friendly. I will most definitely hire
Elgin Electricians Provider Name Locked
and his crew to do work in my home again. Thanks Guys!!
