Where it all Began...
Cousin Sam would take me on jobs back in 1978 to help him work on older homes in the City.
on..... Splitting the Electric in multiple family homes in the Park Ave. Neighborhood,
Upgrades, Trouble Calls, Basically anything Electrical in a home (within reason).
his Fathers best friend was one of the head Electrical Inspectors in Rochester.
This helped us
learn more and to ensure safer wiring on all jobs.
Later on His Brother Ron took me on to do more
I had to come up with a Business name so they can pay me because work was good.
Being young and a car guy everybody knew my car with the 409 engine ( Beach Boys song).
drove this car home from N. Carolina in 1981 and still have it.
Later on my other Cousin Nick
took me on in 1984 to bigger jobs & homes around the County.
In between working for Family
I was exposed to other Electrical Contractors.
Taking & Giving ideas on how to achieve the
best results for us, other trades & customers.
Went to night school and was tutored
by the two main Electrical Inspectors for the city.
Master License, Respect from Inspectors &
RG&E comes with time and must be earned.
Electric is the most important utility in a Home
and not always respected.....
Most of the wiring in older homes is not something you can
learn in a book.
You have to learn it from the Old Timers, Inspectors and Guys like Me..........
