New Construction

If you are planning on constructing a building, no matter the size, we can provide the electrical services you need. From the initial planning, right on through to the finishing touches, we will be there for your project.

Our most common residential buildings are houses, additions, and garages. We can work with you to design, plan, and construct an up to date electrical system, which will be suited to your specific needs.

Upgrades & Improvements

Whether you are installing a new circuit for your computers, entertainment center, appliances, or machinery, we can help. Would you like to change an existing light to a fan? We can help. We also can provide newer devices, and keep your investment up to the latest electrical code.

We also handle larger upgrades, such as service entrance and main panel upgrades, along with adding or upgrading sub-panels, and also upgrading devices and wiring.

Code Upgrades

Along with our regular upgrades, we provide an important service to keep your home up to National Electrical Code (NEC). This is a standard code, required nationally, for the safety of you, your family, and future residents in your home.

Most common are GFCI (Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter), and AFCI (Arc Fault Circuit Interrupter), which provide a safe environment in your home. Proper grounding and wiring methods are also covered by the NEC, and safety is the #1 concern.

Troubleshooting & Repair

If a device, circuit, or complete electrical system fails, or functions improperly, we can troubleshoot it, and inform you on the cause and provide you with solutions.

We provide these services 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Please click here for more information.


Whether your situation calls for more interior lighting, or lighting outdoors, we can give you recommendations for proper and efficient lighting, and help you plan the layout.

Security lighting, such as motion sensors, can provide the added comfort of knowing you and your family are safe, while giving you the convenience of adequate lighting while you are outside at night.

We also provide convenience lighting, when you need to light a specific area that isn’t lit well, or you would like to light an area without turning on the lights in the entire room.

Fire, Smoke, and Life Safety Systems

Fire alarms, smoke alarms, and life safety systems are essential in homes. This is so much of a concern, we have dedicated an entire section to safety systems. Please click here to go to our smoke alarm, fire alarm, and life safety systems page.
