  • "Erik helped us upgrade the lighting in our kitchen and breakfast nook. His suggestions to improve and update our lighting were excellent. He is very knowledgeable about his trade; both the design and technical sides of lighting and electrical work. He was very good at keeping us up to date on the progress and always on time when we had an appointment with him."

  • "Erik is one of the good guys. I would highly recommend him for any electrical job!"


  • "Erik is enthusiastic and competent. He is very knowledgeable and easy to work with. Wired an overhead light above our dinner table and on another visit he checked the circuit on our rental. The circuit breaker had not been set right and he noticed it right away. He refused to accept payment for that call. He’s the only electrician I would ever call."


  • "Clean efficient reliable whether it was a little job or a lot of re-wiring and hanging chandiliers… Exceeds my expectations!"
