Seemed like they underestimate the time compared to what it is taking.... hope the estimate is a guaranteed price

New Life Contracting
I hired New Life Contracting (Ron Dupree) to work on two houses. He started a week late. He was unresponsive when I would contract him. He was paid half upfront. He didn't finish. Not even half the work. The work he did was horrible.

They never return calls. Waiting months for my ice machine to be repaired. Multiple calls with no luck. Take your buisness to someone who cares, not these guys.

Service took longer than expected, but they stayed on bid! I am really pleased with the lighting results and thrilled with the 220 outlet in my garage :)

Set up an appointment with this company and they didn't show up. They didn't call either. I don't think this is good business

Built Wright Construction Electric
Mike Derickson owner of Built Wright Construction has not honored his stated one year warranty on his work. I have not heard from him in regards to any of the complaints and requests I have made. The subcontractor he commissioned to install my plumbing pulled the permit before finalizing the work and Mike D. Paid an unlicensed contractor to finish the job but never contacted the city to reinstate the permit. He over charged for his services. Caused my project to take over three months when it should have never taken more then a month and I have been told by another plumbing contractor that some of the new plumbing Built Wright Construction installed does not meet code. At this time I just want other people to be aware of the horrible work ethics, unprofessional poor quality issues I experienced. So that they are not deceived and taken advantage of like I was.

Tips & Advices
Keep the following tips in mind:
  • Do not operate any electrical equipment while sitting or standing in water.
  • Don't overload extension cords or surge protectors.
  • Put caps on your electrical outlets if you have small children.
  • Call an electrician if you notice your sockets or switches are warm to the touch, discolored or if they make noise.
  • Keep electrical cords away from stoves, ovens and other sources of heat.
  • Do not use an appliance that has a frayed cord.
  • Do not staple extension cords into place or cover them with carpets or furniture.
  • When using extension cords, make sure to unwrap them before plugging them in.
  • Don't overuse extension cords. Have an electrician install extra outlets if you need a power source closer to you.
  • Only use light bulbs with the correct wattage for your lamps and light fixtures.
  • Contact a licensed electrician if you frequently blow fuses, since this can be a sign of an electrical wiring problem.
  • Have an electrician look at your fuse box to ensure you have the right size fuses and circuit breakers. The wrong size fuse or breaker can be a fire hazard.
  • If you have fault circuit interrupters installed in your electrical panel, make sure you test them at least once a month by turning them on and off.
It can cost from $40-$100 an hour depending on the job. This does not include additional costs for parts or trip fees. Make sure to ask in advance what they charge for or if they will provide a free quote.
In order to become a full-fledged professional, a person must undergo an apprenticeship with master and journeyman electricians. An apprentice needs 8,000 hours of practical work before graduating to the journeyman level. If an apprentice reaches journeyman status, he or she can complete most electrical work, but cannot design it until completing more testing along with 2,000 more on-the-job hours.
Yes. While all electricians need a license, not all of them do the same types of jobs.
  • Outside: These types of electricians work outdoors on electrical lines that connect to power plants.
  • Inside: Inside experts typically focus on commercial and industrial buildings that require a lot of power.
  • Residential: Residential electricians work with low-voltage systems and wiring to install fuse boxes and light fixtures.
Watch out for contractors that greatly underbid other electricians. If the price seems too good to be true, it probably is. Also, always remember to get the estimate in writing before settling on a company.
