Hired Rick Schmitz, the owner of Ricks Advanced Electric, to make an electrical repair in our home. Rick showed up late, was very unprofessional and never finished the job. He left saying he would be back the following day but after 5 days and leaving Rick several messages we have had no reply at all from anyone at Ricks Advanced Electric. We had to hire another electrical contractor to finish what Rick started. Do not is this inconsiderate man or his unreliable company.
Fix outlets and lights that stopped working.

Rick showed up when promised, with 2 other guys to help with the work. They made some suggestions to simplify the job and keep it less expensive. Two hours later everything was working great! I'd be happy to call Rick again the next time I need any electrical work done.

We selected Ricks Advanced Electric for our needs based on on-line reviews written by other clients. Rick was on-time, professional and the quality of service was exceptional. We will ALWAYS call Ricks Advanced Electric for our electrical needs.

I've used Rick for a number of different electrical jobs including new ceiling fan installation and wiring, re-wiring existing lights and switches and installing new lighting within the home. Rick also installed a professional grade landscape lighting system and it turned out absolutely stunning. All his work was performed on time and with utmost care to my home. I will definitely use Rick on my next electrical job: New recessed lights in the kitchen to replace the old 'can lighting' original to the home. Rick has earned my highest recommendation.

Rick and his son did two jobs for us. First they troubleshot and fixed a short circuit in the wall of our kitchen near one of the AC outlets that was preventing our can lights in our kitchen ceiling from working. I think I found their business through Angie's list initially. Because they did such a good job (I was expecting to have to replace all the lights) I asked them to come back a few weeks later and do another job for me, one that was long overdue. They installed a separate circuit for the microwave above our stove, which had been wired wrong by a previous contractor and for years had been causing the lights in the dining room to dim every time we used the microwave. Not any more. They did his job in the middle of summer and it involved running wires through our attic in summer temperatures. In each case that Rick and his son came to our house the work was done quickly and done well. I recommend them highly!

Rick's Advanced Electric was recommended by my son and I am happy he did. They arrived on schedule, after discussing our requirements, gave us an estimate, completed the work as requested and did an A1 job. Would definitely hire again.
I found Ricks Advanced Electric in the yellow pages and I sure am happy I did. He came and found my problem which required nothing more than flipping a switch. He charged me nothing. I called him again for service and he did an excellent job. He does not try to push non-needed work. He is very honest and a does quality work. I feel lucky to have him as my electrician.
I had Rick come out to my daughters home in order to get it ready to sell. Rick had quoted me a price to fix what was on the previous inspection and when he got there he advised me that the inspection was incorrect and that the work didn't need to be done. Instead he spent the morning fixing EVERYTHING electrical in the house that did need to be done. He saved us a lot of money and the new inspection came back 100% clean. Rick is extremely knowledgeable, friendly and fair. If you need an electrician you have to call Rick! Sometimes when I read these reviews I wonder if they are real, well trust me this was the first time I had met Rick. My daughter called him after seeing his excellent reviews online. He is the real deal.
I hired Rick to install some outdoor light fixtures and a dimmer switch, and he and his son not only did excellent work with NO mess, he was very communicative every step of the way and explained some wiring abnormalities in my garage (it had been wired by the previous owner, and done incorrectly... I was so happy to finally have this fixed!) and scheduled a second visit to fix the problems. The price was fair and honest, and I would definitely hire Rick again!

Rick took care of our electrical nightmare quickly, efficiently and expertly. He stayed late and even showed up to complete prep work over the weekend to ensure that we would have our electricity up to par in as short a time as possible. If you're looking for an experienced, reliable electrician, Rick is the man to call. We couldn't have asked for better service or price. Thanks again Rick.

We have found our electrician We had some security issues and wanted a couple of motion detector flood lights to light-up our driveway. I found ricks company through the bbb site. We were pleased with his knowledge and suggestions on the security lighting and where best to install. Rick was a pleasure to meet and we appreciate the extra time he took to explain where the lights would function best with the least accidental motion detection. like if our tree limbs move in the wind and so forth. We have found our electrician

Rick and his son came out on Saturday without any hesitation and on time. They are hard working professionals who are very knowlegeable and honest. Explained everything in details. Big thanks to Doug for referring him to us. Not only we are going to use him for other projects, we will refer his service to everyone we know. We finally met a professional with integrity and honesty whom we can trust completely.
