Manuel and his coworker were very good, I would use Java Electric again. We hired them to: install 6 pot lights, add a dimmer, add a dedicated line to a bathroom, add a dedicated line to an electric fireplace, remove outlet, add outlet, install lights. Biggest negative: it took a week to get a response to calls/emails. Small negatives: they did not totally clean up after themselves (drilled wood shavings, pot light lenses, left some wire behind, pieces of cut wire) and scuffed my freshly painted wall/ceiling (but that I guess is expected).
Had an old metal railing and spindles removed for a new wooden one. About 15 feet of railing, 21 spindles, 2 posts. Matt and Ted were punctual and completed on time for the agreed price (no hidden costs). We weren't given any options other than stain colour, we had to investigate ourselves and request things (i.e. post shape, railing shape, spindle pattern). I would have expected closer attention to detail: - main railing had a noticeable machining mistake in it (I had to request it be removed and a new one put in) - one of posts is slightly crooked to naked eye - a nail in one of the spindles had gone through the railing - un-sanded spot on one of the post.
