Remodel and New Construction

Today, there are many options from which to choose when wiring a new custom home or addition, or a remodel of a space in an existing home. Highland Lakes Electric can help with the design of your space, and will provide reliable installation of electrical wiring and lighting inside and outside.

Gary enjoys working with homeowners and general contractors alike to create “the dream home!” He is hands-on, and walks through everything on the construction plans with the homeowner and/or contractor prior to commencing rough-in. Gary listens to what homeowners want to accomplish and may make suggestions based on his knowledge of the business. He explains how everything electrical would work and reviews the designs room by room to confirm the homeowners’ goals will be met.

Not only does Gary address safety and energy efficiency, but he also may suggest ways to make living in the newly designed space more convenient for the homeowners’ lifestyle. Examples of this are considering the placement of light switches so homeowners or their guests do not have to walk through a dark kitchen to turn on its light, or suggesting extra lighting in an area where he sees the homeowner may do much reading, or adding dimmers to switches in various areas of the home.
