  • Acquisition of all required permits
  • Power meter and electrical panel service
  • General residential wiring, including appliance wiring and installation and upgrades or repair for remodels
  • Architectural lighting design and installation, particularly those highlighting décor or landscaping features
  • Data network installations, both wireless or wired computer circuits for home or office
  • Bathroom and spa wiring, with code compliant circuit installation, shock protection and GFI installation
  • Exterior lighting and power supply, including underground electrical circuits, concealed mood lighting & sensors
  • Audio-visual system wiring, such as concealed audiovisual speaker and cable wiring for multi-room systems
