FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
How Much Is It Going To Cost?
In our 22 years of experience, we have found that our clients prefer an accurate price based on their exact electrical problem. Most phone quotes are subject to change once the service electrician arrives at your home. We do not believe this is a fair way to do business. By allowing us to diagnose your electrical problem in person, you will know exactly what it will take to get the job done and we will provide you with a guaranteed Straight Forward Price™. There are never any surprises.
When Can Someone Be Here?
We stay well staffed with only the best electricians to meet the needs of our clients. In most cases, we can offer same day service, especially the earlier you call in. Call us and we will find a time that works for you!
Will I Have To Wait Around All Day?
