The work progressed professionally, smoothly, and efficiently from start to finish, and the expertise and professionalism of this company are evident from initial contact with the owner, Tobias Sommer, through the workmanship of all three individuals who performed the work in our home April 22-23, 2010. Efforts were coordinated and maximized; we felt comfortable with the work being done and with whom was performing the work and our pets, home, and surroundings were respected and protected throughout the job. Donovan, Doug, and (I apologize for forgetting his name) the third worker well represented both the company and their trade. They went above and beyond to ensure the work was performed to our expectations, as well as to safety and electrical codes. One example of "above and beyond" occurred as they discovered the light kit we purchased for installation was defective (globe was cracked). We didn't have transportation that day to go to the merchant to exchange it (and they had already done the wiring for installation), so Donovan and Doug took the globe with them on their lunch break and exchanged it with the store's manager on our behalf. It's not often that we call on outside contractors to assist us with home maintenance. We believed, however, that electrical work should be done by professionals, albeit we were concerned in our initial search as to how we could determine the best contractor and - in these economical times - the best price while achieving quality work. Advanced Electrical Services exceeded our expectations in all areas: initial visit, whole-house audit, estimates, actual costs, workmanship, professionalism, and care and respect of our home, and we recommend this company, both owner and staff electricians, to the highest level. We already have future work planned with this company.
