Great experience with Barney. He's on the smaller side company wise which i prefer as it affords you access directly to the owner. Quality work and even provides estimates with out requiring a service fee. Which i think is a no brainer. Why would i pay a company to come and tell me how much im going to pay them. Estimates should be free. Looking forward to doing more work in the future with Barney.

This is Tonya writing this on my husband phone...
Wow!!! Amazing is all I can say!! After 3 electricians who gave huge quotes and set up times to rip out everything and start anew. Mr Barney and his assistant went into my garage and fixed it all in five minutes. My husband and I are in shock thinking there is no way that just happened. So happy. And the laidback funny attitudes put us at ease. Highly recommend these guys!!!

Two circuits from the house out to a new gate, some 149 feet, and then wired new lights, power outlets, and a photo couple at the pole. One of the circuits was to feed the gate opener and another was for lights and outlets.

After securing several bids, Barney's was the most reasonable. Of the three bids, another electrician was about 600 dollars higher than Barney, and Rockwall Electric gave me an estimate for four thousand six hundred dollars for exactly the same work. Barney's quote was less than half that!

Well, any fool alive can make the decision to go with the lower bid, but it was more than that to me. Barney is just a down to earth guy, and his sidekick completes the pair - two dedicated guys serious about what they do and doing it right.

They made arrangements for the trenching and ensured it took place the same day they laid the conduit and ran the lines, and the trench was filled in before the end of the day. Given the rains here lately, that took coordination.

And the best part? It all worked the first time. Not many of the providers perform as expected the first time around. This one did. Hire HIM, you will not be sorry.
