I reached out to Ben after going back and forth with another electrician over a period of almost two months.
I emailed him on Monday evening, he responded on Tuesday and we connected via phone shortly thereafter. I was pleasantly surprised to learn that he could fit me that Saturday.
He and his apprentice Craig showed up on time (10 minutes early actually). Although the job was fairly straight-forward, i.e. swapping up 4 cheap, builder-grade light fixtures with much nice options, one of the fixtures was above a stairwell (10+ feet above the staircase in that particular spot).
Ben and Craig completed the work very quickly, which equated to below budget. Workmanship and professionalism were both excellent.
