Tyler and Joel were efficient but it was big job.  I was very impressed with how little damage they had to make to our walls in order to fish new wires to every light switch, lightbox, and outlet throughout the approximately 3000 square feet we had to do.  They rewired 14 rooms in total over those 3 levels. I would highly recommend Vetter's for any work in old houses."

Mary A.


"Very Nice people to work with"

Dawud W.


"Tyler and Joel rewired 2/3 of our old Minneapolis house and did a great job considering the challenge our house presented!"

Daniel R


"Great company! I use them for both personal and Business. Service is great and they are very knowledgeable and reliable! Highly recommend!"

Jake G.


"From the time I called until the service was completed everyone at Vetters was wonderful. Jenny was so nice on the phone trying to work my little job in. Jason my electrician was so nice and efficient. I would highly recommend Vetters to anyone needing electrical service no matter how small. Thank you."

Chris S.


"We aren't sure of the cost because we paid through a contractor. They did electrical work and in-floor heating for a bathroom remodel in our 1911 home. We were very impressed with the work and the professionalism of the workers we met, including the owner, who did some of the work himself. Passed inspection with flying colors and will use this firm again."

John R.


"They installed fluorescent lights in the basement, added fluorescent lights and plug ins in the pantry area and rewired the kitchen ad basement. Great husband and wife team. Obviously they enjoy their work. We would hire again in a flash."

Sam G.


"Vetter's Electric installed a ceiling fan for us where there was not electrical outlet. They had to run wire across the ceiling and down to the wall outlet.  They also made a second trip at no charge to re-adjust the remote control which was not working properly."

Mark S.


"They installed underground electrical to the garage and installed 100 amp panel in garage. They have their own trencher which is one of the reasons I chose them. They are very courteous."

Phil B.


"Joel repaired several outlets that were either not working or were ungrounded. He also installed several GFCI outlets, fixed a few light fixtures, and replaced a few circuits in the main panel. I also had him replace my neighbors ceiling fan. Joel was very pleasant to work with and was extremely flexible with both my schedule and with the work I needed him to perform. His rates were also very reasonable."
