DAVIS & GREEN ELECTRICAL
Electricians in Richmond
"I've used Davis & Green many times to help real estate clients who are either buying or selling homes. Davis & Green has enough crews to be able to give timely service, and they can do anything at all that's needed including wiring new construction. The reputation of Davis & Green is important when a seller is making repairs because people know they can trust that a quality repair was made. Reliable, prompt and reasonable service is what I, and my clients, always experience with Davis & Green."

Lightwave services
Electricians in Richmond
"I hired Lightwave for the installation of a chandelier, relocation of light switches which involved moving cables behind walls and installation of light timers for out outdoor lights. They did a great job. They scheduled me right away and worked with my schedule. They also protected all furniture and floor and vacuumed when the job was done. My chandelier looks amazing in the dining room. Jim, who is also the owner was very flexible and stayed longer to relocate wires to another wall. They were also very affordable. Totally recommend them."

What do licensed electricians do?


An electrical contractor plans, installs and repairs wiring in structures. He or she works closely with the home’s general contractor or remodeling contractor to determine the specific electrical needs for the project and to ensure that the wiring will meet Richmond building codes. An electrical contractor’s job also includes installing and repairing fixtures, switches and other visible components of electrical systems.

With today’s technological needs and advances, many electricians in Richmond also are trained to install fiber optic and coaxial cables for electronic equipment. Certain electrical companies may design and install data systems and wire for security features such as alarms too. Some electrical contractors specialize in specific areas, such as HVAC, low-voltage appliances and systems and more, so be sure to ask about their training to see if it fits your project needs.
