With Spring, Electricians Spring into Action

petoskey-spring-electricalFinally, Spring seems to be coming to Petoskey, MI and with warmer temperatures comes more home building and remodeling, which means more work for electricians and electrical contractors in Petoskey, Harbor Springs and Northern MI.

The electrical business was good last year. This electrician was on the go, go , go the whole year. Winter finally slowed things down enough that I could catch my breath and take a little more time with the family.

If you’re thinking of remodeling or building this summer, now is the time to talk to your contractors to get on their calendars. With mortgage rates expected to rise by the end of the year, I think we will see a hot real estate market and I expect all builders, plumbers and electricians to be booked to the max.

Give me a call for all of your electrical contracting needs. –

New & Upgraded Electrical – Harbor Springs & Charlevoix MI


It’s been a busy winter, for which I’m grateful. I helped two homeowners upgrade and add new electrical wiring in homes they were remodeling.

One was a 3500 square foot home on Bay Street in Harbor Springs and the other was a home in Charlevoix MI.

Petoskey Harbor springs Charlevoix electrical wiringIt’s always a good idea to upgrade electrical and plumbing to current standards and code when doing a remodel. Remodeling a home often offer the opportunity to get in behind the existing walls as they are opened up for floor plan changes. I’ve had homeowners who didn’t need to, but went ahead and removed existing sheetrock to upgrade their wiring since the house was already a mess.

I have a big project starting on Sheridan Street in Petoskey. This commercial building has changed hands and the new owner is renting out parts of it, while keeping part for his cabinet shop. I’ll be looking at all the existing wiring to make sure it is up to code, making recommendations on what needs upgrading and doing any new wiring needed for the various businesses.

Looks like it will be a great summer for business – if summer ever gets here!
