Palmer Electric sent an estimator to our home on Dec. 4, 2020 who was professional and helpful. He promised to provide a written by estimate Dec. 9. By Dec. 11 we'd heard nothing, so we called and spoke with a receptionist who didn't seem too concerned their estimate was late.

Mr. [Member Name Removed] I am truly sorry that we were not able to respond to your request for a free estimate in the time frame that works for your project.

Shawn did a fantastic job. He also followed up when it was discovered I needed a HVAC person also. He was very nice and expressed concern because after he did the repair requested, It was found that we had an additional HVAC problem that he felt could be better handled by a HAVC person.

They showed up on time, looked over the project, and decided they couldn't safely replace the fan since it required outside access on a steep roof. This was the correct decision. They didn't charge me for travel time. I would hire them again.
