When considering your real estate investment, a reliable electrician is a must-have resource. Electricians are vital for ensuring the safety of your property. A licensed, insured electrical company can protect your home from the dangers of cut corners or fire hazards, providing peace of mind for years to come. Whether you are a first-time homeowner or seasoned investor in Hampton Roads, make sure your electrician comes highly-experienced and highly-recommended.

This month, CGP interviewed Trey Nipper, owner of Nipper Electric, the “Most Recognized Electricians in Hampton Roads” who are dedicated to providing quality work, quick response times, clear communication, and high customer satisfaction.

Here’s what we learned from Nipper Electric:

Q: How long has Nipper Electric been in business?

Q: What kind of work do you do specialize in?

A: We provide a wide range of residential and commercial electrical services in Hampton Roads– from rewiring and repair, to total infrastructural replacements and upgrades. We even offer same-day electrician services!

Q: What special training or certifications does your company have?

A: Nipper Electric is proud to offer many energy efficient and “green” electrical options. We are a Dominion Virginia Power Lighting Rebate Contractor, which means we stay up-to-date with the newest technology and required codes so that we can make your home more energy-efficient through:

- Solar landscape lighting

We are also a member of the National Electrical Contractors Association.

Q: Do you charge a service-call fee to assess and quote work?

A: We are confident enough in our understanding of electrical issues to offer our clients the luxury of receiving an estimate over the phone. When you call we will ask all the right questions about your electrical needs to provide you with an estimate on the spot. There is no fee for estimates given over the phone. If we need to run diagnostic tests to provide an estimate, our service fee is $69 (does not include repair costs).

Q. What makes you different from other contractors?

A: Unlike corporate facility electrical management services, no job is too big or too small for us, and no question is too trivial to be answered with courtesy and respect. Our technicians take the time to explain the situation, propose solutions with clear prices and timelines, and work together with you to find an arrangement that works with your needs and your budget.

Q: What would you like CGP readers to know about your company?
