Reviews of Robert S Benson, Jr

September 17, 2013

You just never can tell who to trust in the construction arena. I had a few minor electrical glitches that I needed to have corrected but instead I just dealt with flickering lights and bad outlets. A friend recommended Mr. Benson. I was worried but Mr. Benson was fair and the work was great! No more flickering lights and faulty outlets for me!
