Full Apartment Renovation
Got the opportunity to fully renovate an apartment. Added 9 pot lights to living room and 7 into the kitchen, with no drywall repair! We replaced all existing fixtures with new pot lights and installed under cabinet lighting for a beautiful aesthetic look.
Just Another Brick in the Wall
Service upgrade with the original panel hiding behind a freestanding brick wall. Had to cut out the brick wall to expose the panel. Was a crazy day but we got it done with quality like always.
Kitchen Lighting Upgrade
Removed some ancient track lighting and replaced it with 4” retrofit pot lights and 2 new pendant locations for a client putting his townhouse on the market.

He worked for a local electrical company during his summer holidays while enrolling in University of the Fraser Valley’s pre-apprenticeship program. Upon graduation from high school, he completed the remainder of his electrical training at University of the Fraser Valley and the British Columbia Institute of Technology. After working in the electrical trade with his Red Seal Ticket for a few years, Chad returned to school at the University of the Fraser Valley and completed his FSR-B training.

“I had the pleasure of hiring Western Summit Electric for the hanging of a very heavy chandelier. He knew that it would need extra support and went about making that happen. He even wore the gloves I supplied (without asking), as to not leave finger prints on the crystal’s! He insisted on sweeping up his own mess as part of his job. I had him come back another time, once again removing his shoes (without being asked), for more ceiling light replacements, he was friendly, doing the job quickly and efficiently. I will hire him again if need be and would strongly recommend him to anyone who asks.”
“When I needed to renovate a rental apartment that I owned, I wanted to upgrade the lighting. I asked Chad to give me suggestions and do the install. He removed the old fluorescent fixtures in the kitchen and installed LED potlights, ensuring that the work areas would be well lit and the lighting was even. He developed an ingenious solution for undercabinet lighting (Ikea) so I didn’t have to spend hundreds of dollars on Ikea’s system. He fished wire through walls and the ceiling to provide living room lighting that is the envy of other tenants. I couldn’t be happier with the final product coming in at a great price with high quality work. I’ll call him again for the next reno!”
“We recently moved out to a rural area where in just a few months we experienced a couple of significant power outages. I connected with Chad at Western Summit and he installed a generator for us that has now given us complete peace of mind. During the last outage it worked like a charm. Because of where our breaker panel is located we had to put the generator close to our front entrance but it has been done so neatly and efficiently, it doesn’t detract from our outdoor esthetics at all. Will definitely call him again for any electrical needs. 5 star rating!!!”
