Will Recommend To Anyone!

“I would never hesitate to use Zinniel Electric again or to recommend their services to anyone. They were all nice and pleasant. Knob and tube wiring replacement is such a common and expensive job that it makes sense to get 3 quotes. Consider adding Zinniel Electric to the mix and compare their quotes and references.”
