Recent Review: Jim (JB) the owner came out to prepare an estimate and spent about an hour of his time (free) to assess what I wanted to have done. He gave me excellent ideas for type, location, and direction of outdoor lights I needed for the activities I was concerned about. For instance, a motion-sensor light so that the light would come on automatically when I took out garbage from either the front door or basement door, but an override switch so that we could enjoy our backyard fire pit without the light blasting us in the eyes. He also spent a lot of time suggesting the best placement for, and type of, bathroom fan for our needs. Very knowledgeable, helpful, and understanding of individual homeowner's needs. He submitted an estimate about one day after the site visit. Jim and his son Rich arrived on time first thing in the morning and got right to work. With the typical older home, wiring is not as simple as newer homes. They worked through any problems that came up and maintained very pleasant,upbeat attitude the whole time they worked through routine work and (I'm guessing) pain-in-the-butt work. This was important, as they had to be all over the house, inside and out, with the various tasks they were doing. They worked nonstop, except for sharing lunch with my son and me for about 15-20 minutes, from 8:30 until 5 p.m. each of two days they were here. They also arranged for the required inspection when they completed the circuit panel conversion. Finally, on their way out after they finished the jobs at 5:30 pm, they noticed a dangerous situation with outside utility wires being rubbed away by overhanging trees. This could have caused a fire, as some of the tree wood showed singe marks, and a potential shock hazard as the insulation wore away. They gave me the correct number of the power company to call, and Duquesne Light came out shortly thereafter to fix the line. I was away from my home when Duquesne came. When I got home, around 10:30 p.m., only half of my lights worked in the house. Not realizing that this was Duquesne's problem (they had tried to jerry-rig the worn-out power line, but it had broken halfway, and half of the power circuits to the home were not working), I called JB right then to tell him of the problem. Even though I was calling him at 10:30 p.m. after a long day working at my home, he was happy to help. He explained that it sounded like Duquesne hadn't completely fixed the incoming power line. So I called Duquesne back, and JB was right. The repair man knew that the line was still broken. So at midnight, Duquesne came to the rescue and repaired the tree-worn line! In summary, JB and Rich were knowledgeable, friendly, hardworking, and professional, and they even saved us from a very dangerous situation of a fire hazard or shock. And despite some friendly political discussion during lunch, I felt that these guys are gems in the electrician field!
