Questions and answers
- What do you wish customers knew about your profession or trade?
Just that it's not as easy and simple as it may appear! There is a great deal of mental contribution to rest assured that your design is correct and viable.
- How many projects do you average in a year?
25+ on average. Some big, and some are one-day jobs which mostly encompass doing some trouble-shooting to relieve over worked breakers and fuses. The big ones involve complete from the service head down, mostly residential.
- What areas of your trade do you specialize in?
Any electrical needs from the utility pole in. I am certified through the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers and qualified to perform any home related electrical needs. I also have over thirty years of work related experience too add to that qualification.
- What would you recommend customers looking to save money?
I always estimate a job whereas I find the most cost effective way to do a job, including finding the most inexpensive materials, while still not compromising integrity of the materials.
- What certifications or professional affiliations do you have?
I am a graduate of the Joint Apprenticeship Training Program of the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers union of the AFofL CIO, which awarded me the certificate of being an inside journeyman wire man.Basically a four year program deemed trade school.
- Tell us something customers may not know about you.
Ain't much to tell, I'm just your ordinary electrician who tries to do the best work I can so the customer is satisfied with the first application, and keep my integrity intact.
- What questions should a customer ask before hiring a professional in your trade?
If they can rate their services on a scale of 1 to 10 and if they answer honestly they will be no lower than eight and probably no higher than a nine.
- What services do you provide your customers after the work has finished?
After I have completed a job I am available for any follow up needed and will come back on my time to correct anything relating to my work as I guarantee all work.
- How did you get started?
My father and grandfather were both electricians so I guess I was predestined to be third generation. I enrolled in the Joint Apprenticeship Training program and co-oped for my first 4 years working an 8 hour day, and going to night school 4 nights a week. After being certified I worked out of the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers for about twenty years before putting my union card into an inactive status.
- Tell us about the project or job that you are most proud of (in the last 12 months).
I guess it would be a 2000 sq. ft. barn I started from scratch and worked the whole thing to completion, designing and setting up the whole electrical grid.
- What are the most frequent questions you get from customers? What are the answers?
One of the big ones is , is there any less expensive way to accomplish the job, and my answer is pretty repetitive that I've figured the best price they will see.
- What types of jobs are the most common?
Panel and service upgrades, replace switches and plugs, wire hot tubs, wire additions, finish basement wiring. Troubleshoot lights that aren't functioning as they should.
- What information do you recommend to have readily available before looking for a professional in your trade?
To just know exactly what it is they want to do and explain in a clear dialect so there is no confusion latter on.
- What brands or products do you work with?
I have developed a liking to certain manufacturers products over the years. I prefer Cutler-Hammer service equipment, which is panels and components. I prefer Levi-ton when it comes to switches and receptacles, where most everything else is pretty comparable.
