Frequently Asked Questions

Q: How soon can you start a job?
A: "Usually, we can start almost immediately."

A: "It depends on the scope of the job. Our rate is $90 an hour, and we bid the work based on that rate plus the cost of the materials."
Q: Do you ever recommend that customers buy their own materials?
A: "Because there are so many necessary parts, I don’t usually recommend it unless they have some knowledge of electrical work. However, I’ll work with them if they choose to buy the materials themselves."
