    Electric by Miller, Inc.
    Electric by Miller professionally and quickly provided a detailed estimate (which came in as best price among 3 estimates recieved) for the following work performed: Trenched and backfilled ditch, eliminating existing underground dock electrical service. Pulled new wire in conduit from garage to dock walkway and throughout renovated boat dock. Installed new 8-circuit disconnect/breaker panel (with required signage). Installed GFCI recepticle with weather proof panel at pole light. Installed 3 vapor lights fixtures (one with motion sensor), light switch and 4 GFCI receptacles w/ in-use covers. They provided all required paperwork/plans to the GRDA (approving authority for all things dock related), to include inspections which eliminated all administrative burden on me. Only days prior to work biginning, I requested a change order for extending the dock service lines around future site of a pool and outdoor kitchen/bar and to lay in and stub up additional 220 and 110V services at this projected location. They accomodated this 11th hour request and quickly turned a reasonable (cost) change order to the original estimate and began work shortly after this request. Upon job completion, they went the extra mile(s) in retrieving operating manuals from their purchase source, scanning and e-mailing me the operating manuals for the light and motion detection systems so I had details on max bulb sizes, optimal settings, etc.--very helpful! The proprietor (Kathy Miller) personnally inspected the completed job and determined that the light fixture/motion sensor combination was not as good as it should be (safety wise) for lighting the walkway approach to the dock (at night). She ordered a change to a flood light from the vapor light the company's expense. I'm VERY impressed and pleased with the work done, competitive pricing and overall customer service and care! Electric by Miller is my Electrical Contractor of choice...and in this area they should be yours too!

    Built Rite Restoration And Repair
    In the original bid the contractor promised to replace the upper swivel pin of the dock walkway with a grade 8 (hard steel) bolt at least 1" in diameter.  The existing pin was smaller, of softer steel, and assumed to be worn.  The threads of the bolt would allow adjustment of a grade 8 nut so the walkway is firmly attached to shore, but free to move laterally.  The work as described by the contractor entailed building a structure to lift the walkway while the work was being done. The old pin would be removed.  A hole would be cut in the steel frame of the walkway. The grade 8 bold would be inserted in the hole and welded in place by filet welds on the top and bottom of the walkway frame.  The hole for the bolt on the shore-side frame would be increased to approximately 1" to accommodate the bolt.  When the walkway was set in place, a nut and washer would hold the walkway in place.  The nut could be adjusted to minimize dock movement. The contractor said this is the same work he did for my neighbor.  My mistake was not looking at the neighbors dock because no work as described above was done for the neighbor. The contractor's bid was $1200 for the work described above.  The work actually done was weld in a washer to take out the gap that allows the existing pin to move excessively with wave action on the dock.  No structure was built to lift the walkway for the work.  The actual work was approximately three men three hours to accomplish. The contractor said I should have noticed the change in the scope of work and brought to his attention before the work was done.  This was impossible since I was not present when the work was done and I had no supervisory authority over his people in his absence.   The contractor said the work was a lump sum bid and I had to pay the bid price of $1200.  I paid in fear of some sort of retribution such as a property lien, if I did not.
