Installation of pot lights

Jose installed pot lights in our new drop ceiling along with a dimmer switch. He was very friendly and professional. The job was completed to our satisfaction. Jose also pointed out an issue that needed to be corrected at the old light switch which he did. The room was left spotless when he was finished. I highly recommend Building Ideas and will use them again in the future!!

Entire house re-wire

Outstanding! Jose was very professional right from the start. He took the time to explain what was wrong and how to fix it. Turned out my house was very poorly wired, but I'm happy to say everything was done perfectly. He was able to solve problems created by the contractors. He was always honest and was the one trade during my renovation that I actually fully trusted. I've already referred him twice. From now on any electrical or HVAC issues I have I will know who to call.

Miscellaneous electrical jobs (wiring, ceiling fan installlation, etc.)

Jose and his apprentice were very polite, did very good work, explained everything and cleared up after themselves meticulously.
Not only was the work done to my satisfaction, but Jose pointed out a number of sub-standard aspects of our electrical wiring and installations which need attention. We are now aware of the work necessary to make our house electrically safe.
I would recommend this company without hesitation.

Payne furnace

Jose installed a furnace - he was on time and on his budget. He was very good at pointing out other items he could perform that would assist with the furnace efficiency even though it would add to the time on the project. Knowledgeable and professional. Steve D.

Home Repairs

I have been using José and his team for our HVAC and Electrical needs for several years.
They updated our Electrical panel, relocated our furnace and ductwork for our Basement renovation, as well help us with our kitchen's electrical upgrade, the most recently project they help us was upgrade our Air conditioner getting us ready for summer.
They are very professional, polite,
They really "give me a piece of mind".

I sincerely recommend Jose and his team for any HVAC and Electrical projects

Tank less water heater

This is the third item that Jose installed for me. Air conditioner and furnace 5 years ago and on Monday a water heater. Jose was extremely professional, his workmanship was clean and neat.

AC and Furnace maintenance

Jose and his team fixed the AC for the new house in no time, and he explained exactly what was wrong and what he did in order to fix it (when no other contractor could give me a good explanation of what was the problem). The AC has worked perfectly since then. I really can't think of a better job.

Building Ideas also performed maintenance on the Furnace system and filters and wear extremely satisfied with the job.

Jose is honest, respectful and highly knowledgeable, nothing he or his team can't fix. I highly recommend Jose and Building Ideas for your electrical needs.

If six stars was an option, this would be it. Thorough with a strive for perfection. Knowledgeable and honest. Did I mention extremely clean?! Will not lead you astray. Polite, prompt and pleasant. Will gladly use this crew again.
