Best Kansas City Contractors of 2009
Mr. Electric of Clay County | Kansas City, Kan.
Billy Muessig, franchise owner of Mr. Electric of Clay County since 2003, is selective about who he hires.
"We focus on their personal attitude," Muessig says of his employees. "We strive to find someone confident in their technical abilities, and who's patient and can communicate effectively."
Angie's List members consistently commend Muessig's employees for great service and attitudes.
"Their personalities are outstanding," says Karen Grossi of Kansas City, adding that a Mr. Electric technician remembered her dog's name several years after his first visit.
The company, which is licensed in Johnson County, sponsors local community festivals and offers its customers energy-efficient products. The two-time Super Service Award winner has four Pages of Happiness nominations this year.
C & C Concrete Construction LLC | Shawnee, Kan.
Quality materials, knowledgeable advice and great value are words Kansas City Angie's List members use to describe C & C Concrete Construction.
"Overall, I was overjoyed with their knowledge, the product quality and the great crew," says Douglas Handley of Shawnee.
C & C owner Chad Prater, who isn't required to be licensed, says it's his practical approach that's earned him rave reviews. "I want my work to last the lifetime of the customer," he says.
That attitude is exuded by Prater's employees, too. "You could just tell they wanted it to be the best they could and not just get by," says Wallace Glanville of Shawnee.
The company's work has earned seven Pages of Happiness nominations this year and Super Service Awards in 2007 and 2008. The company offers earth-friendly concrete sealing products.
