Company is the BEST--absolutely the most honest and efficient company I've ever dealt with!
I had multiple dead ceiling lights and my microwave kept flipping the breaker. I was worried that my 1970 condo building (Village of Kings Creek) had the dreaded aluminum wiring and anticipated having to replace the old circuit box and possibly rewire my entire condo. Yes, I always go to the worst case, apocalyptic scenario.
could have taken me to the cleaners and said I needed everything re-wired. But they are so honest that
, the electrician who handled my call, calmed my panic and worries about safety. He methodically checked out the situation and inspected my electrical system. He tested lines (since my circuit box wasn't labeled correctly) and pulled the circuit box to check its condition. He was able to reassure me that I did not have aluminum wiring, the box was in good condition and the previous owner had maintained it well, and that the ceiling light's transformer was blown. So it ended up that we simply installed a new kitchen light--hooray!
I had been thinking about under cabinet lighting for quite a while and asked
's advice. He explained different types and brought up some
lights from his truck for me to see. He had the components on his truck (I love companies that stock their trucks well so you don't need to schedule a separate service call). So I had
install the under cabinet
plug-in lights. This was completely my idea,
did not push this sale on me at all. He did an excellent job--had me sit in the living room to make sure the wiring & hardware wasn't visible, drilled through my kitchen cabinet to hide wires in the cabinets, etc.
I chose
because of their glowing reports on AngiesList and I am wowed by the wonderful service --kudos to all their employees that I came in contact with. My initial call was answered by
who was friendly and thorough in assessing my problem; she said their scheduler would call me soon.
(I hope I'm getting these names right) called me back within 10 minutes and scheduled me for the very next day. These women ensure a fabulous first impression of the company. The next day,
was the electrician who came to my apartment. He was right on time, attired in a crisp
uniform, and patiently went through my condo office's process of presenting his license, insurance, etc. and getting a parking permit.
was friendly but completely professional. He was knowledgeable and his work was expertly done. I would not hesitate to request him for future jobs. He even put up with my cat who hissed at him every time she walked by :-)
I will most certainly be recommending
to all my family, friends and neighbors. And I had a Angie's List coupon for 10% off labor for this job---thank you Angie!

"The work was done well. The two employees were very good, timely, explained things, etc.
Two items in the in the fine print escaped. (My bad. I did read the fine print and highlighted two items but these two escaped me.) a) $99 extra for a flush-to-the-wall panel. I never imagined there was any other kind. b)"Deal does not include drywall repair." I now have an above panel, a below panel and a slight side panel hole in the wall to repair myself.
The contractor was honest. But should these be "fine print" items? Caveat emptor.
When I made my online order I requested an upgrade from a 100 amp service to 150 amp service. When the estimator came by I repeated this. When the installers came they said they only had a 100 amp panel in the van. (On the plus side I don't have to pay $2k for an outside upgrade.
A new surge protector was part of the deal. It was not installed. I forget why - it was explained to me - perhaps because of the outside service.
My water heater was not correctly connected. As soon as I called they fixed it, and explained the reason. No complaint here. Then my washing machine didn't work. I missed a weekend wash. Turned out it was just unplugged. I should have caught that myself. But the point is: contractors should return things back to how they found them. (I think that speaks to the drywall issue.)
Price: Good but not great. Because:
$99 for a flush panel that should be automatic.
$??? for drywall repair.

"I held off doing this rating in the hopes of finally getting the deal done. That seems unlikely.
This saga began on 9/1/2013 with the purchase of an Angie's list offer for $345 for an electrician for a day. After telling Nick Porretto, the electrician that I wanted a fuse box switched to a circuit breaker box, he told me I could pay the difference directly to him (not thru Angie's list) for that service, and on 9/10/13, I paid an additional $783.00 (total of $1128). He changed the box on 10/5 and 10/6, both days coming much later than agreed to, which is why it took two days. After he left I realized he had not installed the whole house surge protector that was part of the deal. I called him that evening and he agreed he'd forgotten to install it and would come back. I have copies of emails sent on: 10/17, 12/12, 12/31, 1/27/2014, 2/24, 3/25, 4/21, 5/19/ and 5/30. Sometimes there was no response. Other times there were excuses: out of town, didn't have the equipment, working another big job, etc. I called on 5/30. Although the person who answered sounded like Nick, after I explained the reason for the call, the person on the other end said it was his son and he'd call to schedule an appointment. I offered contact information but he said he didn't need it. I've heard nothing since.

The representatitve arrived promptly at 7:30 am and identified himself as the person who had called on Friday to identify himself and confirm the appointment. The electrician doing the work was

. He was courteous, professional and went to work right away. The whole job was performed in about and hour and a half. He was eficient and neat, The work was performed satrisfactorily. I was pleased with the work and the price for the job. I asked them to give me an estimate to install some recessed lighting, and I will definitely consider them for the additional work.

"These guys are great! They showed up on-time (actually about 15 minutes early), and promptly got to work. There were a few things that were not covered (extra breakers, re-routing of a conduit, and replacing a faulty GFCI), and each time they made sure I was aware of what the issue was and what the charge for it would be. On those items, they were very fair with the pricing. I highly recommend them, and when I buy a new home in the next year, I fully intend on using them again.

were installers. Covered their feet, protected the furniture, and cleaned up after them. Work took a while because they wanted to ensure the right materials and had to obtain them. Work was done perfectly, as far as we can tell. Excellent work all around. Will definitely use them again for future electric work.

"I suspected we were in good hands when Erza introduced himself & his assistant, shook hands and they proceeded to put coverings over their shoes before entering our house. The reason I had called
Miami Electricians Provider Name Locked
was to take down a heavy dining room chandelier from a 16 ft high ceiling. When I asked for an approximate cost, I was advised that they'd need to look at the job first to determine a rate. Upon inspection Erza advised they would charge an hourly rate. Because they were so professional, it did not take them long to remove the chandelier. Since I was paying by the hour, I asked if they could take a look a two outlets that were not working. They pleasantly agreed, quickly determined the problem, fixed them as well and asked if there were any other problems. What a pleasant experience.

"Electrician did a very professional job, explained everything, did the work, made recommendations and seemed genuinely concerned with getting it right and keeping me informed. Although more expensive than an average electrician it was definitely worth the extra money to know the work was done right and was going to be stood behind.

"Unfortunately provider did not provide service. I had bought the $99 Big Deal for 2 hours of electrical services. Provider and I exchanged emails and phone calls - he was very concerned with the requirements from my condo board - need his Trade Licence to be faxed to the Property Manager's office. Provider thought that he has to leave his car keys with some one when he comes for his serivce call. I confirmed that he can keeps his car keys and just need to park in the service parking area vs. the visitors parking area. Provider just stopped responding to my emails and telephone calls. So I had to ask for a refund. Waste of time and effort.
