We searched on the Homestars website for a company to do our electrical work. Not sure how the female slacker poster on my team decided to pick these guys but no complaints! We decided to go with Defender Electric (seems to be tied to Lopinski Electric who have good knob and tube reviews) and so far the work to get us the estimate has been good. The price came in a little higher than we had hoped (as always!) at $3.6k. They better find a way to get us to give them a good review on the site under the new brand name.
So tomorrow we probably book a time to get them in to fix up the electrical work and install the hardwired fire alarms on all 4 levels. I will feel much safer with the kids around after that is done.
