DRS Electrical rewired the whole of my house for me. Since then, I have also worked with them on other smaller jobs. I can honestly recommend them without hesitation. They are professional, friendly and extremely reliable. Nolan was great when the house was being rewired, helping me to plan where all of the sockets would be and the specifications of all of the installation, so that we ended up with exactly what we wanted. Nolan gave great advice and came up with solutions to all obstacles. I have since been working with Sam on smaller jobs. He is very quick to respond and easy to work with. Both Nolan and Sam are great to have working in your home. They are respectful and professional and actually pretty good fun. I would trust them with any electrical work I have in the future.
