Sometimes our family members can drive us crazy. Maybe the kids ran into the house, directly from the garden, and tracked globs of mud all over the kitchen. Maybe our spouse who just fixed our car, but wiped poorly-washed hands on our new towels. We are quick to reassure our clumsy guest who spilled a glass of red wine because they are, after all, our friend.
We teach our children to be thoughtful and do better in the future. Our spouse was just keeping us safe by maintaining our car. And, of course, guests have accidents.
Those excuses don’t fly for workers and contractors in your home. Being asked to work in someone’s home is a great honor; it demonstrates trust that we’ll safeguard their property with the same level of care we would take for our own possessions. And we will!
Mark Langston was kind enough to drop us a note which said:
Tom, your guys were great! They were on time, they covered everything up very carefully and they consulted with us all the way through the process.
You bet we did, and we were happy to do it. If you have to drill a hole in the ceiling, and there is going to be some plaster dust as a result, you certainly don’t put a tall ladder over the beautiful grand piano and start drilling away! Good grief! Do you know what plaster dust could do to the inner workings of a fine piano?
Of course, it is more than just that. Sometimes you have to cut a hole in a wall to gain access to a hidden component. Naturally we can make that hole vanish as if it were never there (you’ll never find it!) but the consequent mess would be nasty to clean up. It’s so much better to protect everything first, and then we can clean up much more easily with a vacuum cleaner when we’re done, right?
It was pristine when we got here. It will be the same when we leave!
Mr. Langston also added:
Our art has never looked better and your design was spot on. My wife says you have a beautiful team!
Well, thank you so much for saying so, though we have to admit, as a team, we are unusually attractive. Of course, the truth of the matter is that we are incredibly experienced with artistic design. Our consultants travel all over the country, lighting some of the finest art collections in the entire world.
You are obviously not hiring a company that added art as an afterthought. Our founders, Jim Stephens and Tom Kretzschmar, deliberately set out to bring electrical engineering and artistic design to the public, all wrapped up in one neat package.
Our team is always respectful of your belongings and property; we treat these things as if they were our very own, deserving of complete and thoughtful care. We are familiar with all residential construction techniques to facilitate wiring with minimal or no damage to ceiling and walls. In the end you’ll find no muddy footprints; no plaster dust; and everything neat and tidy when the job is done.
We know all the lighting techniques for all forms of art whether media on canvas, sculptures, furniture, displays, or collections. We consult regularly, and test before installing, to make sure there are no unsightly shadows or glare. Just look at the fine things we have achieved in our gallery.
