First time customer - Had four bids placed for a hot tub installation. Barney's cleanliness and overall respect for his own tools, plus a willingness to work with me helped secure the work for his company. His crew were fantastic. Very professional, quick, clean and explained what/how they were going to accomplish the job. Highly recommend.

We had a problem, but were not sure if the problem was our dryer or the outlet. Barney came out and determined the problem was with our dryer. Since it was not an electrical issue and required no work from him, he did not charge us at all! It’s so good to find an honest repairman and we will definitely call Barney back. In addition, he was timely and personable. Thank you Barney!

Barney's Guys (Jason and Victor) came out for a little fix it and wire pulling at my home. They showed up went to work and completed the job without interruption, which can be rare with some service groups. I was actually impressed with the fact that when their phones rang, they didn't answer them . Very old school customer oriented. Definitely use them again and recommend them. Barney followed up and was completely in touch with us and crew the entire process, from bid to completion.
