I had ranzo came in and install my pod lights tv . I had no light in living room so it took him sometime to get it finish. He was so patient. His work was neat and clean. He didn’t cut any dry wall in the living only in closet which is not visible and he covered it completely so you cant see its visible. He also installed brand new switch for me.. i wound really recommend him. Really happy with his services..

Renzo came by to remove a big chandelier that was very difficult to get down and to install a pot light in it’s place. He made it known that he usually does not deal in these kinds of take downs and repairs but did a wonderful job nevertheless! I would definitely recommend him to friends and family.

Renzo did a amazing job . I had been look to get more ceiling lights for my living room for quite some time now found Renzo contact info online called him and he was here same day for a free quote he explained everything in detail regarding what needs to be done. After I purchased the lights he was there next day for the installation and I was very satisfied with his work. He is friendly and very professional at his work. Will be calling him again soon for my backyard lighting. Highly recommended!!!
