We've used Integrated Building Systems several times now and highly recommend them! They're professional, reasonably priced and do great work.Darin and his team have always been on time and easy to work with. They're friendly and come up with great solutions to problems. They've always made it easy for us.

I highly recommend Darren and and his team at Integrated Building Systems! We've worked with Darren for the past year on a variety of projects that required some creative problem solving. Darren and his crew removed our solar array in the fall so we could have our roof replaced, and they recently reinstalled. The array had originally been installed by a different company, so Darren was tasked with the challenge of taking apart and putting back together a system that was not of his own design. He was meticulous and so detailed oriented in tackling this project. He took careful measurements and pictures in the fall and arrived this summer with a large packet of images and data, ready to make sure he got the reinstall done just right.Darren also helped us problem solve a solution for getting enough power to our detached garage so that we could install electric vehicle chargers. Given the age of our home and the location of the garage, we had been having difficulty finding a solution for years. Darren was the first electrician we met with who actually seemed energized and excited by the challenge and by our desire to add EV capabilities to our home. His team installed a second electrical panel in the garage, updated all garage wiring, installed new overhead lights, and added two EV chargers.Throughout our time working with IBS, Darren has been a prompt, thorough communicator. He has been honest, fair, personable, and extremely knowledgable in his profession. Each member of his team who worked on our projects was skilled and professional as well. I recommend IBS for any electrical work, but particularly for green power projects, like EV and solar.

I was brought to Integrated Building Services through HomeAdvisor for an electrical panel replacement and 200 amp service upgrade. Darren had a very fair quote to me within a couple days of my initial contact. I have an older "low voltage switching" setup in my house and he knew exactly how it worked and settled any doubts I had about replacing my electrical panel. His crew was on time and worked efficiently, and left my house looking better than they found it. Very happy with the work done, and highly recommend.

We loved our kitchen, living and dining room area but it had poor lighting since the day we moved in. We talked with a few contractors but Darren really set himself apart from the others with how he thought through our space and helped us come up with the perfect plan. The pricing was good. The communication throughout the process was excellent. The professionals who did the work were highly knowledgeable, efficient and personable. We are very happy with the finished product and would highly recommend this company to anyone!

Darren, Adam, and Mike did a great job installing the electrical panel and charging station. Highly recommended!

Found Darren and his crew on home advisor, got lucky to find a great group of electricians. They came to my house within 3 days of talking to him and that includes the weekend to do a 200 amp upgrade and install a generator panel. Finished in a little over 1 day and did an excellent job I couldn’t be happier. Adam came back the next day for some trouble shooting on 1 circuit that had a broken wire in the wall and his trouble shooting skills are pretty awesome,very efficient. Made the repair and Good to go. These guys are a great group of master electricians highly recommend them for any electrical needs.

I found these guys on the internet last night and they had someone out this morning. We had some outdated/wonky outlets and switches replaced/worked on and were very pleased. Adam was knowledgeable, efficient, and friendly. We'll definitely use this company for our future electrical work needs.

I hired IBS LLC for 2 projects: to correct some electrical problems at a house I was selling and at a house I was buying. I spoke with Darren on the phone to describe the work to be done and he was able to schedule an electrician for the next day to complete the work accurately and quickly. Within 2 days, I had electrical projects I had wanted finished for 5 years. I will certainly use IBS LLC again for home electrical projects.

Darren and his team installed a 4 KW Solar system on our SW facing garage roof using 10-LG370 solar panels with 5-Chilicon Microinverters. Working with Darren was seamless and simple process-he has a straight forward honest approach that is appreciated.The Microinverter from Chilicon Power are manufactured and designed in California-with a technically advanced high performance specifications that made startup and commissioning very simple.I would highly recommend IBS for any Solar array installation.

Integrated has been to my Shorewood home on a couple of occasions and has done terrific work on both challenging situations. Darren is quick to respond and keep in touch and Adam did wonderful work and is very personable and professional. I highly recommend these folks.

They wired my bedrooms for ceiling fans and installed the fans. Follow-up was needed to re-position the light switch, and they came to do this follow-up as well.

Trustworthy! Have had them at the house for a number of fixes and they are always a pleasure to work with. Highly recommend Darren and his team!

We had an odd electrical issue come up on Labor day weekend and called IBS because of the reviews on Google. Even though it was after hours and he was busy, Darren answered and had us try a few things over the phone. When that didn't address the issue, he said he'd reach out to Adam who might be able to help. 20 minutes later Adam was at our house and working to get the issue figured out. We can't say enough about the service and professionalism of Darren and Adam. Extremely fair pricing as well. We'll definitely be using them for any future needs we have. If you're looking for an electrician, you don't need to look any further.

Thanks for helping us out Adam.
23:30 06 Aug 19
Adam took the time to answer our questions and explain everything, Great job, highly recommended. Thank you.

We had Darren and his crew set us up with an upgraded 200Amp panel, 3 - 220v outlets and a 5.4kWh solar system and they did a perfect job! The system runs perfectly and the upgraded outlets help us charge our Tesla with the included travel charger at 32amps, 30 miles per hour. Our solar system is now producing 140% of our daily needs and is exceeding all of our expectations! We plan on adding more panels down the road and we will definitely be calling Darren!

Wow! What a great team of electricians this company has! I had some work done in my home and the quality and service were top notch. Thank you for an outstanding job.

Darren, the owner of Integrated Building Systems, and Adam, who we've worked with consistently over several projects, are both excellent to work with. They have great customer-service and do nice work correctly, quickly and for a decent price.I've always enjoyed working with Darren and Adam to get what I need to done in my house. My projects have ranged from installing new electrical boxes and wiring new light fixtures, to hooking up a dryer outlet - twice because I needed to move it! - and adding dimmer switches). No matter how big or small the project is, I will only be using Integrated Building Systems for my electrical needs. They do it right.

I've used Integrated Building Systems a couples of times for electrical work. The electrician, Adam, has been timely, proficient, and good to work with.

Darren was a wealth of information on the Aqua-Air product. He stepped me through its operation, benefits, etc. even though he would not get the sale as I'm on the other end of the country. He even offered to be a resource for the installer in our area. I wish Darren was in WA state. He'd have my business in a heart beat. Bosses need an Attaboy's too.

Darren and his staff were very responsive. We were very happy with the work and the professionalism of the workers. All in all a good experience and we will use them for any future electrical work.

Timely, honest, reasonably priced, and friendly.

Phoned the owner, Darren, on a Friday night. We had no power in our family room and the wires were broken and not hooked up properly. Just talking to Darren over the phone, I came to the conclusion that he was a really nice guy! Had one of his men, Adam, come to our house at 9 the next morning - on a weekend! Adam was able to find and fix all the wiring problems, the new ones as well as an ongoing problem. Super friendly young man! VERY happy with the whole experience! My new 'go to' electrician!
16:43 06 Dec 18
I had a whole wall of outlets that didn’t work and I didn’t think would be repairable for the right price. I was wrong! Darren was very professional, timely, and reasonably priced. He was also very sweet to our barking dog and excited new puppy. Thank you!!

Used them in May to wire my new kitchen island. For the first time I’ve used an electrician that was competent, honest, and efficient. Will use them again and will definitely refer them in the future.
16:54 01 Oct 18

Adam arrived with a positive attitude and got right after the job. We encountered a few tricky situations, but he was quick to come up with a resolution. He finished the job about an hour ahead of schedule saving me some scratch given what I budgeted from the original time estimate. I will definitely use these guys again!
21:45 08 Aug 18
Adam provided quick, courteous, and professional service. I'm very pleased and I highly recommend them. I won't hesitate to hire them again.
04:31 22 Jun 18
Darren arrived when he said he would. He was very knowledgeable. His prices were very reasonable. He completed the job quickly and cleaned up after. I will definitely use his company again.

Adam did a great job and will be using them again.
18:57 20 Apr 18
Adam just left our house completing a little job that several other companies didn't even answer my inquiries about estimating. Darrin called me back shortly after I contacted them, I sent him pictures of the light receptacle in our basement that needed addressed. Adam was in and out in an hour - job well done and much nicer than what was previously there in our almost 100 year old house. Adam is fantastic and lives in an old house himself so he gets it! I will call them for more work in the future :)
19:52 06 Apr 18
Been trying to find an electrician that is reliable and does good work. I called Integrated Building Systems and the very next day Adam came out to do the work I needed. No need for multiple appointments. Very nice and did a great job. Would definitely recommend!!

Adam came to install a new chandelier. The service we received was fantastic. They fit us into the schedule quickly. They were neat in the area they worked in & gave us their expert advice on the height of our light. Highly recommend them for future projects.

I own a Landscape company, and had called Darren at very short notice to come look at an electrical issue the homeowner needed remedied. Darren was on time when I met him out at the client's home, very professional and went above and beyond when it came to his services. I would highly recommend his business and will be using Integrated Building Systems in the future.Mike H.

Adam installed a ceiling fan and light fixture at my home. He also worked to troubleshoot a new ceiling fan that wasn't working. Figured out the problem! Most impressed. Would definitely hire again!

Darren Kalal and Adam Honadel and the team at Integrated Building Systems are fantastic. I've had him out to my condo to install a 70" ceiling fan in our master bedroom. Darren is very knowledgeable and customer service focused. Adam the electrician that came to install the ceiling fan was very professional and sociable. I enjoyed Adam very much. Adam also provided suggestions for some resessed lighting replacements for our kitchen area which we plan on scheduling with IBS in September/October time frame. All of the work was done in a timely and efficient manner, even if it meant working a little beyond normal hours. Expectations were clearly and concisely presented before work was started so I knew ahead of time what to expect. Darren and Adam also were very good at working around any problems that may have occured, such as studs and concrete being in the way of where wiring or electrical boxes need to go. There's no one else I would trust to do electrical work. Darren and Integrated Building Systems are the best! If your looking for a residential electrician fir any projects I highly reccomend IBS!The Wagner Family

We hired Integrated Building Systems to put in 16 LED recessed lights throughout our kitchen and living room as well as fix some outlets we couldn't get to work, and installing two new lights on the exterior of our home. Darren and his team were polite, professional, and went above and beyond in the work that was done. They cleaned up after themselves and ensured we were completely satisfied before leaving. The cost for all of the work that was done was very reasonable. We highly recommend IBS and will be hiring them again when we get around to refinishing our basement.

We are selling our house, but had a little hiccup. We called Integrated Building Systems, they were out the next morning. Darren was very polite, knowledgeable, and very helpful. The pricing was very fair. We are very pleased and would definitely use IBS again.
