Electrical Repair & Installation
If you’re encountering an electrical problem, it’s likely one of three issues; an electrical short circuit, an open circuit or an electrical overload. Some of these problems are fairly easy to repair. However, if you have no experience repairing electrical problems, now is not the time to start.
When electrical problems are not solved problem, there's a high risk of starting a fire. It may not start immediately, but can spark and smolder within the walls after you think the work is done. That fire can erupt at any time.
You’ve likely been “shocked” before but a real electric shock is much more painful and much more dangerous. Because the muscles that tighten your hand are stronger than the muscles that release your fingers, when you are suffering an electric shock it is virtually impossible to release whatever you are holding that is causing the shock. This just exacerbates the problem. Your lungs constrict and it’s difficult to breathe. Worst of all, your body suffers burns; both internally and at the skin surface.
Don't risk your health or the lives of your family. It isn't worth it.
Instead, give us a call and we'll deploy our experts. You can rely on our professional electricians to use quality materials, provide excellent workmanship, complete the work on time and for a fair price.There's no job too small or too big.
* Child Proof Outlets are one of the greatest safety features to be created in decades.These new outlets were designed to save the 2,400 children who suffer sever shock and burns each year and the six-12 children who die annually from sticking things into the slots of the electrical plug in.

Also known as tamper resistant electrical receptacles, these new electrical outlets have "spring-loaded shutters that close off the contact openings, or slots, of the receptacles. When a plug is inserted into the receptacle, both springs are compressed and the shutters then open, allowing for the metal prongs to make contact to create an electrical circuit. Because both springs must be compressed at the same time, the shutters do not open when a child attempts to insert an object into only one contact opening, and there is no contact with electricity. Tamper- resistant receptacles are an important next step to making the home a safer place for children." Source: National Electrical Code® (NEC®)
