We bought a fan that was too big, and had to exchange the fan for a different, smaller span size. This required him to return a second time to install the fan. He was very accommodating to us. The installation went well and the fan looks and works great.

When Our previous electrical contractor got too busy with commercial work, we found Eric on Angies List. What a find! Eric is now our go-to guy for all things electrical. He is honest, knowledgeable, shows up on time, prices are reasonable, stands by his work- everything that you could ask. Look no further!
