IBS installed a backup generator at our home. Darren the owner/electrician was here as a part of the team. Adam was the electrician installing the box. Mike preparing the site and doing alot of the prep work. They were polite, professional and did a quality job.

I had whole a house Generator installed today! They arrived, installed, had up and running in less than 6 hours. I will not be sitting in the dark without lights and water ever again. Work was done beautifully! I would highly recommend for all your electrical needs.

The employee was polite and explained what was being done so there was no confusion on my part. Excellent job and great representative of the company.

I had a very complicated Heated Driveway project that required a significant amount of alterations to our home and property. Darren and his team was the only contractor with prior experience and they knew exactly what was required. They were on time, professional, and very good at what they did. I would not have trusted such a complex and difficult project with anyone else.
20:42 17 Sep 21
They were on time, cleaned up after themselves and explained what they did. Very professional.

We had a NEMA 14-50 installed our garage for EV charging. When Darren came out to do a quote he was very receptive and had a conversation about the concerns I had in regards to the panel being on the opposite side of the house in a newly finished basement. He came up with what I thought were reasonable solutions and he was able to walkthrough what the exact process would look like step by step. So when the price was a third to half the price of other quotes and they were able to do it the next week, it was an easy choice. Everyone one that was involved in the process was very helpful. Very happy with the work.

I called IBS after reading about them on the internet as it was one of the businesses suggested that deal with generators. I spoke with Darren who informed me that he installs and performs maintenance on them, but is not authorized to repair one that's not working, which is how described mine. But that didn't stop him from asking me a lot of questions and trying to help me problem solve the possible cause. He then had me FaceTime him while at the generator and then the electrical box, and patiently talked me through getting it to operate again. He spent a good 1/2 hour with me and there was no charge!I am very grateful to Darren as this unit is at the home of 2 people with disabilities, and where several power outages have recently occurred without the generator kicking in. He showed a level of interest and concern I wouldn't have expected for a first time caller.I will absolutely call Darren again for any future electrician needs.Thanks again Darren!

I have had a lot of work done for the install of my hot tub the past couple months (landscaping, concrete, the hot tub itself, ect.) and everything that could go wrong did. Except for the electrical work. Adam and Intregated Building Systems were really breath of fresh air and I felt they went out of their way for me.

Adam was our technician for the install of our duct work coming from a bathroom vent fan. He was professional and did an outstanding job. I would definitely recommend this company.

Adam does a fantastic job at a fair price. Great work, highly recommend 10/10

Called this company as I needed a new outlet installed for my recently installed dishwasher. He scheduled me for just a couple of days later. Adam (I think thats his name) was the one who came to my house for the project. I don't have a single negative thing to say about the entire experience. He was very friendly, efficient and did a great job in such a short amount of time. He was fun to talk to, very personable and answered my million questions about different electrical and other house projects while giving advice and what the company would be able to do for the various projects. Price was great. I will definitely be using them again in the future!

These guys are awesome!! I spoke with Derek, to get a quote on installing a Ring doorbell. He was the third contractor I called for a quote, and he gave a similar figure to the previous two. But, Derek took the time to ask me a few more questions. He asked whether I had done any type of electrical work in my home before? I told him the only thing was installing a Nest thermostat. He let me know that was a much more difficult job than this, and I could do it on my own. He assured me that none of the wires I would use would pose any electrical threat to me. Basically, he kindly volunteered advice that saved me $200. During this tough year, when many people seem to have lowered their standard of behavior, Derek steps up to help a total stranger. I will be doing all my electrical business going forward with Integrated Building Systems. Thank you Derek!

We've used Integrated Building Systems for several projects in the past, including ceiling fans, small repair jobs, switches, etc. Most recently we hired them to run electric to our shed 150' behind our house. The entire process from start to finish was seamless. Darren was very kind, professional and helpful in answering all of our questions leading up to the job. And believe me, I had a lot of questions! Adam was personable, detail-oriented and efficient. He was also very pleasant to chat with and you can tell he enjoys his job. They were reasonable with pricing. We plan to hire them again in the future to replace our electrical panel, and anything else we might need. Thanks again guys!

Just a quick note to say how pleased I am with the experience today. Adam was great not only from a technical perspective in terms of finding the best solution given some challenges he faced, but he was extremely personable and didn't mind me talking his ear off about... anything.....while I hovered as he did the work.In today's day and age (especially in 2020), it's refreshing to know there are quality people out there who have not only the knowledge, expertise and a high level of professionalism - but more importantly people who have those qualities AND who hold people & customer service in the highest regard.He's a master of his craft and I absolutely plan on hiring him for some more work in the near future. Thanks again and I look forward to working with you soon!

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.
13:38 19 Jun 20
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!
19:55 08 Jun 20
Darren, Adam, and Mike did a great job installing the electrical panel and charging station. Highly recommended!
23:44 01 Feb 20
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.
00:34 25 Jan 20
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.
22:48 17 Jan 20
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.
15:51 17 Oct 19
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.
18:11 12 Sep 19
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!
15:03 01 Sep 19
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.
23:33 06 Aug 19
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.
11:39 19 Jul 19
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!
04:53 07 Jul 19
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.
19:59 31 May 19
The crew at Integrated Building Systems installed a bathroom fan for me. They showed up on time, were very professional and did a great job!
19:52 25 Mar 19
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.
17:40 22 Mar 19
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.
15:35 01 Feb 19
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.
21:53 17 Dec 18
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.
02:12 10 Dec 18
Timely, honest, reasonably priced, and friendly.
19:14 08 Dec 18
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!!
15:45 21 Nov 18
Fantastic company to work with. Service is great, timely and reasonably priced. Highly recommended.
18:51 17 Nov 18
Adam and Chad did an amazing job on our Kitchen!! I would highly recommend them both!!
21:12 26 Oct 18
02:22 08 Oct 18
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
Darren gave me the prices right up front and arrived in a very timely manner very professional and friendly got the job done very quickly and cleaned up after the job was done I will call them every time from now and I encourage anyone else to call them if you need electrical work done

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!
