I wanted to take a minute to say thank you to Blair for all of his hard work on my home. I bought my townhouse in August of 2020 and it needed a lot of updates! Blair was the first contractor that I contacted and I couldn't be happier with the results. He took the time to listen to what I wanted, and offered suggestions when appropriate. Through connections with flooring companies, I was able to get a significant discount on the laminate floors that were laid throughout my home!
Just some of the work Blair did on my home included:
-pulling up carpeting
-changing the lights in my living room
-putting multiple pot lights in my basement
-laying subflooring throughout the basement, main floor and upstairs
-putting laminate flooring in my kitchen, living room, basement and upstairs
-putting wood trim along all flooring listed above
-fixing the plumbing in my downstairs and upstairs bathroom
-gutting the entire master bathroom and upgrading to new tiles, bathtub and toilet
-fixing the plumbing in my basement to the scrub sink
-adding a hose and outlet to my backyard
This spring when I decided I wanted to update my deck and backyard area, Blair was the first person I thought of! He made time for me right away and again listened to the vision I had for my yard. He was flexible with me as I changed my mind multiple times, and again I couldn't be happier!
Some of the outdoor work he completed in March of 2021 included:
-demolition and disposal of my current wood patio
-reconstruction of a new patio
-design and creation of a one of a kind bench seating area as part of the patio
-design and creation of a gated area to enclose the patio space so it's accessible for my dog!
-design and creation of a one of a kind raised garden bed attached to the patio
-design and creation of a privacy screen area including custom frame
-design and creation of a custom recycling/garbage container
Once again I was so happy with Blair's work! He is easy to talk to and is patient and diligent in his work. My bench has a custom geometric design that I wasn't anticipating, and my gate is functional and pretty! Blair is punctual and friendly to work with. My dog absolutely loves him and he's great with her, which is important to me.
I wouldn't hesitate to contact Blair again in the future for any needs or wants I have in my house from electric work to anything related to construction. Thanks again for making my new home a place I love to be!

Blair installed some new deck lights for me. Not only was it a great job, but he also came up with a new style for me. I haven’t seen anyone else’s deck with the same type of lighting that I have now!!! I get a lot of complements on how great it looks!

In the height of panic with an electrical fire, Blair was quick, calming and professional. He arrived at my house within an hour and stayed until every outlet was checked, replaced and peace of mind restored. He took the time to show me each problem and answered all my questions. I highly recommend Blair's expertise. He helped make my house feel safe again.

Blair completed the electrical work for our basement renovation including a brand new electrical panel. He was very efficient, explained everything he was doing in detail and answered all of our questions. He has come back a few times to help us with other electrical work. He responds quickly to requests and is always super helpful!

I have a home that is close to 100 years old that has had numerous renovations and additions during its lifetime, some done professionally and some by a do-it-yourselfer. As the newest owner of this home, I have run into many situations that left me scratching my head. Blair has done a wonderful job of addressing and fixing many electrical issues in my home that were unsafe. He has installed new lights and fixtures, outlets, found hidden knob and tube wiring, and completely rewired a couple of rooms we took to studs. He provides excellent service with consideration to costs but most importantly makes sure it is done right and up to code. I am impressed with his work and would recommend him to others.

Blair installed several light fixtures in my home, and updated all of the outlets and switches. He discovered a couple of wiring issues from previous work or from when the house was built, so it was nice to get those resolved too. He is very knowledgeable, and did quality work. When running the wiring for new fixtures, he always found a way to minimize any cuts that had to be made in the walls or ceiling, and he patched up the holes perfectly.

We called Blair to fix a wire mishap involving our pool. He took the time to figure out the best way to fix the problem so that we wouldn’t have any issues down the road. He was approachable and very knowledgeable. We will call him next time we have electrical needs.

Blair did a fabulous job on our bathroom. We were very pleased with the work and the end result. Would definitely have him do work again!

“Are you looking for someone who does home improvement work and is also an electrician? Blair is the person for you. He is personable, does the work in a timely fashion and at a reasonable cost.
He rescued us from a roof leak that had come through a light in our bathroom. As you can imagine this could have ended in disaster. Blair repaired the attic area that was already becoming moldy and of course cleaned up the wiring and water damage that was in our light.
Thank you for the work you did!"

I am very impressed with Blair's expertise and attention to detail! The previous owner built a "do it yourself" basement with numerous flaws and inferior materials, so Blair took the walls back to the studs, and created a new plan that included an impressive amount of storage space, as well as room to relax. He rewired the electrical system properly, put in new walls, floor and drop ceiling with pot lights, and problem solved some unique areas beautifully! He bult new storage closets, created non-Standard under stairwell storage doors, and put in a recessed ceiling area around an existing window. I would highly recommend Blair at BearWires Electric to handle your electrical and renovation needs.

I highly recommend BearWires Electric! Blair has helped us with electrical work on many occasions. We have an older house which can have its challenges. Blair always responds quickly to even our smallest problems. He installed a new electrical panel and wired our entire basement putting in plugs, ceiling lighting, wiring for the TV. He is very efficient, precise and dependable. I was very impressed with the attention to safety, detail, and getting permits and inspections to make sure everything was done to code.
