Dear Rocky,

It is with great pleasure that I am able to give you a recommendation.  Having worked together for at least 15 years I can say with confidence what a good relationship it is. One of the areas that I believe you have done a good job is in the selection of your employees, a group that is knowledgeable, cheerful, and helpful. When something needs to be done they are always ready, willing and able.  With our tight schedule it has been remarkable how few times there has been a conflict to be there on the day set aside for the electrician. As a final note I have been impressed with your willingness to bring new technology to our attention for us to try. I believe that the length of our relationship speaks to how much we value and trust you.

I have worked professionally with Rocky for almost 20 years. I met Rocky when I was working for a large residential home builder in Eugene. Rocky was the Electrical Subcontractor before and during my tenure at the company. I was fortunate to work in conjunction with Rocky in my positions of foreman, estimator, and superintendent. Rocky and his crew’s exceptional knowledge of residential electrical wiring were invaluable to my construction education and to performing my job. I have continued to use Thornton Electric Inc as my Electrical Subcontractor when I became a General Contractor in 2007.

My goal as a contractor is to provide excellent service.  This is why I continue to use Rocky.  Thornton Electric Inc. is a fine example of a company that provides exceptional service, performs according to schedule, and is efficient in their work performance. Rocky and his employees truly care about the service they provide. Rocky is always willing to meet with clients and discuss their electrical needs and options. He continues to educate himself on new products and technologies related to the electrical trade. My relationship with Rocky is based on a history of working together on many construction projects. I trust his experience and will continue to use him for my electrical contracting needs. If you are looking for an excellent electrical contractor, then I highly recommend Thornton Electric Inc. for the job!

Thornton Electric has been doing all my work since they went into business in 1983. Rocky Thornton is a great person to work with and has great integrity. He is honest and forthright.  He has an ability to work well with clients. He gets his bids back promptly and is able to explain costs.  His employees are fast and diligent workers. They are polite and courteous around clients, and are able to do high-end work well. They respect other craftsmen that they work around, and are careful not to damage the work of others. For these reasons I can confidently recommend Thornton Electric to provide courteous and professional service that you can use and recommend yourself.

In the past year we have had two occasions to view the work of Thornton Electric. The first was as a subcontractor during an extensive remodel of our house which involved a new service entrance box and an almost complete re-wiring of the existing structure with two major room additions and installation of a standby generator. The second occasion was the installation of a photovoltaic array connected to EPUD’s grid which has worked efficiently from the first day of hookup to the grid.

We found Rocky Thornton to be knowledgeable and innovative in his work. He and his helper were efficient and pleasant to work with and was accommodating to changes we requested.
We do therefore highly recommend Thornton Electric.
