Why Choose Us
We are well trained professionals
Like anything in life, if you put forth effort and you use your mind you will be successful. The same thing can be said for electrical work. Our apprentices work under the supervision of multiple licensed journeyman electricians. They get the benefit of being trained on the job from a qualified individual with years of experience. They also go to school one day a week and learn the math and the electrical theory which teaches us how to safely harness the power of electricity. This process takes five years after which time they take a final exam to get their license and become a Journeyman Electrician. We believe in investing in the future of our employees because we believe that we will be working together for years to come.
We have the experience
Working from a blueprint presents its own set of challenges. The prints need to be studied to catch all of the details and to make sure that any conflicts in the installation are caught before a structure is finished. Working without a blueprint and coming on to a job to troubleshoot or make changes to an existing electrical system is even more challenging. This is where experience pays off. We have studied the National Electrical Code so we know what the rules are and how to apply them. This in conjunction with our knowledge of how buildings are assembled enables us to take the big picture into consideration. We work with our customers to help them understand the process and provide them with the information that they need in order to make decisions. The end result is an installation that functions well and serves the users’ needs.
We have a good reputation
We have worked hard to gain the reputation that we have in the community. We live and work here in Pinellas County and we are an integral part of that community when we are at home or at work. A good reputation takes years to build and we depend upon referrals from our customers to their families and friends. We recognize that the relationships that we build with our customers are a big part of what keeps them coming back to us when they need help. We depend on you and you can depend upon us.
