Rich was easy to work with. He came to our home to get an idea of what needed done. He was able to schedule us within the week. Rich and his partner showed up on time and completed the work in a reasonable amount of time including clean-up. I would definitely recommend Rich and will be using him in the future.

On the same day that I entered the work request online, Rich reached out at the end of his work day to schedule the appointment. He would fit me in between other jobs to get an assessment, so the time would be either in the morning or the afternoon. He reached out about an hour before arrival and he and Vince showed up promptly. They spent a good bit of time trying to figure out what was wrong. Th...

Rich got back to me right away after contacting him. He was at my house the next morning. He replaced two GFI's which in turn solved the issue with the outlets in my bathrooms. I would definitely call him again if needed.

As a local Masonry contractor for 25 years it's very refreshing to deal with another contractor who not only shows up when he said he would but went above and beyond to perform the work needed. A wind storm brought down trees, a utility pole and all associated wiring with it...Rich was the first to respond and show up (and that includes the utility companies)..he was a breath of fresh air in an ot...

I’m sorry but I’ve been in the hospital for more than a week, but I called and her told her when I got better I would schedule the project but I guess that wasn’t good enough. I’m still not working.

We had a great experience with Rich! We had our electric updated in our home and he was quick to respond and gave us a quote immediately. He arrived on time a few days later and was very professional. I don’t have much experience with home/electric and rich explained everything that I needed and made me feel very comfortable with the work that needed completed. I will definitely be a returning cus...

Spent a half hour on the phone with him discussing the problem, and set up an appointment for him to come by and give a quote. When the day came, he totally blew me off-- never called to change the day, or tell me he wasn't coming, so I sat around all morning waiting. When I called him finally, he told me he forgot and hadn't gotten out of bed yet.

I spoke to him about his electrical problem and what it would take to repair the issue according to the code but he didn't want it to be done correctly. He wanted me to just make his knob n tube wiring have electric like it did before he screwed it up and it's not legal to do anywhere I also had a family emergency and was at the hospital until 5:30 am with my wife and slept in so I didn't call to ...
