RC Electrical Services is an excellent contractor for performing many different kinds of home improvement projects. I have used RC Electrical’s services on 3 separate projects, and I have been a customer for over 2 years. Each project was bigger and more complex than the other project. In ALL instances RC Electrical showed advanced expertise and great innovation. They are also very through, clean and organized after the completion of the project. Here is what they have done for us:
1) Improvement of the electrical structured cabling of our electrical outlets.
2) Installation of Closed Circuit TV Security Camera system.
3) Rewiring of the Kitchen Lights and kitchen cabinet lights.

I am also going to use their services to do entire wiring for the basement of our house including power, data and multimedia (sound system wiring).

Thank you so much for your professionalism RC Electrical.

Rene was a great electrical contractor. His work, and the way he conducted himself on the job site, and in public, was nothing but polite and professional.

We hired Rene to wire our basement. He installed 5 circuits worth of recessed lights, outlets, GFI outlets and 3-way switches.

He also cleaned up the sloppiness the home builder had left in the mechanical room.

He was always on time, and the inspector even complemented on the quality of his work. He said, “You can tell when someone knows what they are doing, the work is very clean and makes my job as an inspector very easy.” As a home owner, that is the kind of thing you want to hear when you are having people do work in the biggest investment of your life.

I will be recommending RC Electrical Service to all of my friends and use him for all future work.

RE: Electrical Services by Rene Cartagena


I am writing this letter to highly recommend Rene Cartagena to provide electrical services.

During the past few weeks my family has employed Rene to do two separate large electrical jobs.

First, Rene completely redid the entire electrical system on an old (60 years or older) 1400 square foot cottage on our property.

The work involved redoing the entire electrical system — which had to be brought up to the International Code, including grounding, outside outlets, inside outlets, wiring for all appliances, furnace, well, air conditioning, telephone, internet and cable services, and installing a new breaker panel. In addition Rene hung light fixtures and installed recessed lights.

Second, we asked Rene to update the communications wiring in our primary residence….which did not have cable wiring or high speed internet wiring.

Rene did an excellent job on the work in both places.

First, since there was no general contractor or architect involved, Rene, after asking us about what we needed, figured out what had to be done to accomplish our goals, drew sketches to show us, and fully, carefully, and patiently explained to us his recommendations. Then he gave us fixed price proposals which were very reasonable.

Rene came when he said he would, did excellent work, kept the workplace as neat as he could (given that in both cases he was fishing wires behind walls), and was polite, courteous, and always pleasant on the job site. In the cottage where there were other tradesmen at work, Rene got along well and was able to get his work done efficiently.

The wiring for our primary residence was very complicated because we were trying to integrate old lines with new lines and to do as little damage to the drywall as possible. Rene had to do some complex wiring to make it all work…but he would not quit until he had it completely figured out.

Rene is well-organized, always brings the materials he needs to the job site, and is logical and careful. He clearly takes great pride in his work and wants it to be perfect. After he was done, with the assistance of his brother, the drywall was patched nicely and matching paint was placed on the walls so that none could see where the work had been done. Then Rene cleaned up the areas where they had done work, replaced all the furniture, and helped rehang pictures–all with patience and a cheerful disposition.

I have really enjoyed having Rene do this work for us and we look forward to calling him in the future to help us with our electrical needs.

I highly recommend him. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to telephone me at 202 994-3958 or 703 759-2951 or send me an e-mail at lzubrow@law.gwu.edu.
