They state the following right on their website, regarding why they need to come to your house and charge you a fee to provide a quote : "There is no way for an electrician to know exactly what type of wiring methods, styles, and materials are in your home without a visit to your home.

They came out and found an underground line down. They called the power company and had it fixed right away. They also lowered the price and fixed an electrical plug. They were very personable and knowledgeable. Kurt was the lead technician. He is great.

DESCRIPTION OF WORK
They had to come out on an emergency visit in the middle of the night. We had a very unusual power outage. The lights dimmed down and didn't go out all at once. Some were on and some were off.

That is never our intentions. I have discussed your co...
