While owner Greg Klock may have closed his funky Burnet Road retail space, which used to be loaded with a curious and disjunctive mix of mid-last century collectibles and ceiling-fan parts, he still takes ceiling fan drop-off work through neighbor Alamo Alarms, just up the sidewalk. Our experience with Klock Electric, however, is through their terrific in-home electrical repair service. While they cover all the necessary superlative bases to earn this title: fast, efficient, cost-effective, the thing that distinguishes them from other firms is that elusive "extra mile" that you so rarely hear about in home services these days. If you pay Klock for an hour service call, they work that entire hour, not by stretching a 15-minute job, but by asking, "What else do you need? How else may we assist?" They are also mighty helpful and not at all shy about offering recommendations and home maintenance tips to save you dough. That is so cool.
