The Texas Hill Country offers breathtaking sunsets, natural trees and streams, wildlife, lake views, and wide-open spaces to enjoy the outdoors. It’s easy to see why areas including Lakeway, Bee Cave, Spicewood are growing so rapidly with hundreds of families arriving each year. As busy electricians serving the Lake Travis Hill Country every day, we’ve helped local residents solve many different electrical problems, and after seven years, our electricians have noticed a few electrical concerns that are unique to the Texas Hill Country. Here are some top electrical concerns that Lakeway, Bee Cave, and Spicewood residents deal with.
Unfinished or poorly executed wiring.
Our Lakeway electricians often get called out to address original wiring that was done as a new home was being constructed. Homes are being constructed quickly to meet the demand of new families arriving into the community. Sometimes the speed at which the homes are going up means contractors are in a hurry to complete their jobs, and this frantic pace can lead to corners being cut or unintentional errors.
Home Lighting Customizations.
Many new homeowners are moving into a home that needs a little personalization. For example, families are either moving into a previously owned home or a new spec home, the lighting and fixtures that are in place might not meet your needs for the space or complement your personal taste. Our electricians often replace lights and fixtures as the homeowners are settling in and making their new home their own.
Grill and Appliance Service & Repair.
Texas Hill Country residents like to cook and they like to grill. If your grill has no power on game day, that usually spells trouble. Our electricians in Lakeway, Bee Cave, and Spicewood make a lot of house calls to prepare cooking appliances and grills so they can do their duty producing BBQ and amazing meals they were designed for.
With so many nice days throughout the year, Lake Travis homeowners like to entertain outdoors and enjoy their outdoor space as much as possible. (Powering through the allergies!) Our Bee Cave, Spicewood, and Lakeway electricians come to many homes that are installing outdoor lighting and powering spas or pools. We also assist a lot of homes that need maintenance on these features. Our weather is mostly nice, but storms and wind can beat up the outdoor light fixtures and damage any exposed outdoor wiring.
So there you have our top four Hill Country house calls, and maybe some of them sound familiar. If any of these concerns has been on your to-do list for too long, maybe it’s time to pick up the phone and call StarTech. We are a family-run electrical company serving the Hill Country communities of Lakeway, Bee Cave, and Spicewood with the commitment that only a local electrician could have.
