KAP Electric

"Easy, called KAP, set up an appointment for a quote, Keith arrived on time as scheduled, reviewed the scope of the work, sat down and in minutes had a quote for me, Quote was reasonable money & timing, (We had two other quotes that were outrageously higher): Keith have his clients on his mind and he doesn’t try to rip you off (even when it’s obvious that the client doesn’t have a clue of what’s need to be done) The Job is finished according to plan, inspection passed with flying colors. I will use KAP Electric (Keith) on our future projects and obviously recommend his company to anyone who wants a Good, Clean, Cost effective and Professional electrical work"
