We did a kitchen remodel earlier this year and that required coordinating five different sets of people, not including deliveries and whatever we had to pick up ourselves. We did take a few quotes for electrical and Mr Strouse's estimate was actually not the cheapest, but it was close to it. More important to us was that he actually listened, looked at what he would be dealing with, was easy to communicate with, and expressed experience with and quot;olderand quot; houses (ours is built in the 50s and has an old addition; the attic is low and weird). We felt more confident that his estimate would be accurate and not have and quot;surprisesand quot; at the end; who knows with the other guys, who just made a list, didn't look at our attic situation, etc. In any case, it turned out to be a great decision. Over a total of four visits, he was always on time, courteous and cheerful, worked tirelessly and quickly, and cleaned up after himself every time (and sometimes after the other workers who were less than thorough). With all the stuff that had to be done, there was only one case where he had to make a small additional hole (that wasn't for a new outlet). Since our kitchen is half original house and half old addition and we were also changing so many things, I had expected at least a few extra holes to patch up, but there was only the one (about the size of a racquetball). Overall, his work is neat and professional, with no corners cut. For example, out of principle (and asking first), he changed out an ancient light switch and moved an outlet about a foot farther away from the sink (it was right by it) for no extra charge. On the last visit, when he was there just to add the attic light and all the trim, I asked him about adding an outdoor outlet (I had put it off in case other costs came up since I knew it would be a bit pricey). He checked it out, gave me an estimate ($300), got the supplies, and added it that same day. At the end of it all, his estimates were exactly what I paid and I was very happy to pay it. I definitely plan on using him in the future for all other electrical work and recommend him to everyone without reservation.
