Need a Electrician in Danbury?
I met with Jim, the owner of J&J Clap Electrical Contractors to talk about his company. Jim had been running wires and putting in plugs & switches with his father since an early age. He went to Abbot Tech, and wanted to focus on being an electrical engineer so he went into the Army for the college fund. Jim was in the army for 8 years and served in the Gulf War.
Jim came back home after the war, and worked for a few local businesses. Before long he felt he needed do better by his customers, and opened up J&J Clap Electric with his father Joel Clap who had been working the trade since 1972. Opening up a business didn't intimidate this combat vet even the slightest bit. As Jim says "I knew no matter what that I was going to do the right job by my customers, and that would pay off." Paying off it did - Jim's business grows through his referrals alone.
J&J Clap opened the business in 1997, and it was father & son working side by side until March 2000 when Joel passed away. Jim continues to honor the fine tradition of top quality work with superior customer service which was the hallmark of his father. Nowadays J&J Clap Electric's reputation for outstanding residential and commercial electrical work is known throughout Fairfield, Litchfield, and New Haven counties in CT as well as the Westchester & Putnam counties in NY. He proudly serves the above areas while employing 5 licensed electricians.
Why Choose J&J Clap Electric?
One of the many reasons to choose J&J Clap Electric is because Jim is hands on everyday. He gets a ton of great feedback from customers about how they enjoy seeing him on the job day in and day out. As Jim says "working 80 hours a week keeps me young."
I asked Jim if he was to start over from Day 1, what he would do differently... Jim responded "I wouldn't have waited so long to go into my own business. The electrical trade needs good qualified electricians. I've gotten so much great feedback from our customers because we take care of their homes like its our own. Our electricians show up to your home clean shaven, without the stench of cigarettes and with a pair of booties in hand. Keeping customer's homes tidy while doing the job, and making sure to clean up when the job is done is part of the J&J Clap Electric service standards.
Where will J&J Clap be in the next 6 months?
Jim wants everything done perfect. His daughter has a more unfavorable name for his need for perfection, but after seeing his testimonials its easy to tell his customers love him for it. Jim wants to maintain his Electrical business because he doesn't want to sacrifice quality for quantity.
After interviewing Jim Clap, owner of J & J Clap Electric Contractors I was impressed with his level of customer service. He let me know that he breaks down each bill for his customers so they can see exactly what their being charged. On top of that he handles all paperwork himself, and returns every call each night.
I know where I'll be going if I need a generator or any electrical work done.
