The technician came punctually and worked efficiently to diagnose, repair and reprogram the Lutron system. The quality of the work and attention to detail were excellent. His knowledge of the Lutron technology was thorough and he was able to diagnose all the problems and repair most of them (one controller was bad and needed to be replaced; he could not locate a replacement nearby, so he showed me how to replace the controller and offered to talk me through reprogramming over the phone).
My first criticism is that he was only available from early morning to early afternoon and had to leave at a specific time so I felt a little rushed getting everything done in the time allotted. This meant that he was supposed to follow up via email about programming the system - which never happened.
My second criticism is that the price seemed outrageous, but the supply of Lutron-savvy technicians is too small.
Overall, I would recommend H&L highly for the quality of the service and knowledge of the Lutron Grafik Eye technology but found them to be expensive.

A & S was a lifesaver for me. I had used another company to do some work for me earlier in the season but I was not completely satisfied with their work so our architect suggested A & S. I'm so glad he did. They were prompt, knowledgeable and efficient. The work they did allowed us to do the work we needed to do. The new breakers allow us to have a clean power source for our video projections and the installation of the emergency lights allowed us to receive a Temporary Permit of Assembly for the production we were doing in our theatre.

installed 11
New York Electricians Provider Name Locked
recessed retrofit lights in my NYC apartment. They were on time, super-professional and very competent. The crew went out of their way to be sure I was happy with the result and left the apartment clean and in good order. They even finished the job a half a day early. I inquired about getting a discount b/c the job was finished early but to no avail. Although I felt the cost was high fir the job, they did a fantastic job and I would definitely use them again.

I had a laundry list of small jobs to be done in prep for putting my apartment up for sale. My overhead kitchen light had stopped working, a kitchen outlet had shorted out and had to be replaced- the outlet was in a cutout of granite so I was concerned if he could reach behind to work. No problem! Replaced the outlet and built out the outlet box so that the plate would lie flat. Went out and bought a new ballast for the overhead light and repaired that. Then I asked to have the bathroom light switch converted to switch with plug. Awesome! Charged me $375! Awesome!!

I later received email from
New York Electricians Provider Name Locked
(4/9), "I understand that you are on a schedule, but it really is difficult to steal
New York Electricians Provider Name Locked
away from his project. They are building a new school and it takes a lot of effort to set up the workers. Can we compromise and schedule for this week Friday 12PM so that we can complete your job this week with some buffer for any potential problems?" It appears as if they are meeting the customer halfway with a "compromise" when the better choice of word would be "impose on your schedule"
Answering why the cellar ceiling fixtures were installed and then uninstalled
New York Electricians Provider Name Locked
’s email 3/12 says, "
New York Electricians Provider Name Locked
decided to rewire your basement receptacles so that they could be placed on a GFCI breaker. I had not included that work in my proposal but
New York Electricians Provider Name Locked
recommended we do it, so I agreed that he add that new wiring." This work actually is included on the proposal.
New York Electricians Provider Name Locked
is not an electrician. The NYS licensed building inspector said not only do ceiling receptacles in a cellar not need to be GFCI protected, but
New York Electricians Provider Name Locked
didn’t install GFCI circuits anywhere in my cellar including where they are supposed to be. I twice found the ceramic lighting fixtures lying on the cellar floor instead of being put back in the empty carton where they were found. The colored screws that came with them as well as wing mounting parts are missing.
4/15 12:57 I called
New York Electricians Provider Name Locked
for no hot water because the boiler had no power a day after the boiler shut off switch was installed.
New York Electricians Provider Name Locked
came promptly under the impression that he was fixing work done by another company. He didn’t know that
New York Electricians Provider Name Locked
works for
New York Electricians Provider Name Locked
until I told him to call
New York Electricians Provider Name Locked
to contact
New York Electricians Provider Name Locked
about the work.
New York Electricians Provider Name Locked
said “
New York Electricians Provider Name Locked
works for Leader?” It took more time to find the problem of no power in the new switch than to fix it. They
New York Electricians Provider Name Locked
’t check work. I don't know if the wiring was done by
New York Electricians Provider Name Locked
or
New York Electricians Provider Name Locked
. The day after
New York Electricians Provider Name Locked
was assigned to work on a junction box for a 4 way switch,
New York Electricians Provider Name Locked
said, "He didn't do what I told him to," and then
New York Electricians Provider Name Locked
redid it.
New York Electricians Provider Name Locked
, an appliance repair man, was on his first job with
New York Electricians Provider Name Locked
.
New York Electricians Provider Name Locked
’s contract says "broom clean," but they never sent a broom or dust
New York Electricians Provider Name Locked
. They used my broom and dust
New York Electricians Provider Name Locked
.
New York Electricians Provider Name Locked
sent a shop vac only after I requested it. It was never used after the first time when it blew out dust. The
New York Electricians Provider Name Locked
employees used my shop and home vacuum, my drill, my #8 sheet metal screws, my drywall screws, by and simply helped themselves to wood from my cellar that they thought was scrap to use as a straight
New York Electricians Provider Name Locked
and as blocking inside walls. I reminded
New York Electricians Provider Name Locked
to send clean up equipment (email 3/6).
Clean up is different than consequences drop it wherever. It’s about lost parts, damaging floors and feet with screws and sharp ends of steel armored cable. I found screws in house plant.
New York Electricians Provider Name Locked
's team lost a junction box cover in my cellar for 6wks.
New York Electricians Provider Name Locked
removed a pigtail fixture which I found 4wks later in my rag towels.
New York Electricians Provider Name Locked
's crew lost colored special screws and wing attachments to my light fixtures (email
New York Electricians Provider Name Locked
3/12). Some were found on cellar floor.
New York Electricians Provider Name Locked
removed the side screw on a push button switch and the nut inside dropped inside rendering it unusable. Every single panel or junction box that
New York Electricians Provider Name Locked
opened has fewer screws than before Leader's employees opened them.
Wall patching repair work was done as soon as an access hole was no longer needed bringing up safety concerns for how to handle old wiring. There were discrepancies between
New York Electricians Provider Name Locked
who isn’t an electrician and
New York Electricians Provider Name Locked
who is an electrician about "burying live wires in the wall" by patching over them.
New York Electricians Provider Name Locked
didn’t appreciate that his employees gave conflicting instructions on when to close up walls over old wires which were live at the time, but would be later disconnected from power. (email
New York Electricians Provider Name Locked
2/27).
New York Electricians Provider Name Locked
spent hours redoing a section of
New York Electricians Provider Name Locked
's wiring (email
New York Electricians Provider Name Locked
3/26) "I am extremely surprised.....I hope
New York Electricians Provider Name Locked
is communicating with
New York Electricians Provider Name Locked
to confirm how he wired thing before assuming it is incorrect......"
New York Electricians Provider Name Locked
told me that he told
New York Electricians Provider Name Locked
this section of work was not done properly when he arrived on site on 2/25. One of these outlets is not working at the time of this review.
Apparently it takes
New York Electricians Provider Name Locked
minutes to file an on-line permit. On 3/26 Department of Buildings website listed no permit for my address. On 3/27 a supervisor verified that
New York Electricians Provider Name Locked
hadn’t filed a permit and advised me to “hire a licensed electrician.” I take it that Dept of Buildings assume licensed electricians do what they are supposed to.
New York Electricians Provider Name Locked
didn’t respond on 3/27 to a request for delivery of permits for work started on 2/17. I asked
New York Electricians Provider Name Locked
for the permit in response to email 3/27 that
New York Electricians Provider Name Locked
was "available to come back and complete the balance.” I received the permit minutes later with a filing date of 3/27 and filing fee of $54. The work to be done was “general electric” omitting a new breaker panel and boiler switch. I sent a copy of the contract to
New York Electricians Provider Name Locked
with a request to align the permit and work specified in the contract (email to
New York Electricians Provider Name Locked
3/28). The 2nd permit has a face value of $77.50. I was charged $500 filing fee for the boiler shut off switch. The
New York Electricians Provider Name Locked
up for filing 6wks after starting work is at least 400%.
New York Electricians Provider Name Locked
said in email on 3/28, “I just hope you have not opened a can of worms by calling the BEC. You could have just called me to remind me to file [the permit]” and on 4/28, “PS. I have no idea why you would think that any credit is due regarding the BEC permit fee: the BEC fee has little relevance to the fee that we charge to file. Time (labor) is involved in filing and in the inspection(s) and labor is certainly not free.” It must be a big can of worms rather than a forgot.
New York Electricians Provider Name Locked
's standard contract footnotes say "this pricing has been discounted" When I asked about why I saw no discount,
New York Electricians Provider Name Locked
said, "all of our contracts say that." I had this removed from mine so that my contract says "intentionally omitted"
In June I have a punch list and a month old promise for a finish date for work started on 2/17. I found 2 more problems after the 5/7 walk thru. This large electrical company whose website claims they stock common supplies (4/18 email
New York Electricians Provider Name Locked
) "ordered afci breakers which will take a few days to come in after that I assume we are 100% done." The circuit breakers are replacements for used ones installed (email
New York Electricians Provider Name Locked
4/14). After I noticed the boiler switch cover was soiled and scratched, I found circuit breakers in the main panel including the double breaker which feeds the upstairs panel are scratched and appear to be used. I never saw circuit breakers in boxes. The building inspector found installed circuit breakers which would void the warranty on the panel box because they aren’t of the same brand as the panel. He found no GFCI circuits where they should be and where
New York Electricians Provider Name Locked
claims they are. I have kitchen, bathroom and cellar circuits which aren’t GFCI protected. I have circuit breakers which aren’t labeled and circuits for which I can’t identify the breaker. We are at an impasse because the customer isn’t entitled to monetary credit for contracted work not done or compensation for damages. My requests for written change orders and credit have been denied (email
New York Electricians Provider Name Locked
3/19, 3/31) "Can we please consider those credits as being a wash against the extra time we have spent on the present contract, or as included within this new proposal? IE. Let’s consider it even." My requests to be compensated for damages to my floor were met with offers for an electrical worker do wood restoration work. "We will arrange to have someone come over and give your floors a good wash and a second clean with wood polish, which will take out all minor scratches" (email
New York Electricians Provider Name Locked
3/26). I declined the offer because my pine floors which have a water based finish can’t be restored by applying "wood polish. “
New York Electricians Provider Name Locked
's workers have demonstrated no aptitude to work with wood and because all wood polishes clearly state
New York Electricians Provider Name Locked
’t use on floors.
New York Electricians Provider Name Locked
’s response to change order and credit for not installing a ground rod was "It turns out you already have a ground rod" (email
New York Electricians Provider Name Locked
3/26).
New York Electricians Provider Name Locked
, who stood in front of my ground rod twice before giving me a written proposal, discovered my ground rod more than a month after the work started. I knew I had a ground rod, who installed it and when. I didn’t request a new one. When I asked
New York Electricians Provider Name Locked
why I need a new one, he said "Just because you do.” This is now hearsay. The proposal states "existing fuse panel in closet to be removed and given to owner and existing wiring relocated into new panel.
New York Electricians Provider Name Locked
(email 3/26) contradicted this, “The proposal didn’t include moving the wiring from the 3rd floor fuse box to the new breaker panel. I had suggested doing that by
New York Electricians Provider Name Locked
said it was inadvisable as the wiring was too old to touch." The NYS licensed building inspector said there were no safety issues splicing the wires in the fuse box to the new panel.
New York Electricians Provider Name Locked
and
New York Electricians Provider Name Locked
explained the technical difficulties in doing this on 5/7. Why did
New York Electricians Provider Name Locked
, who is apparently an electrician, and saw this fuse box twice before the bid, propose doing the work if it was not advisable? The fuse box and the ability to see it didn’t change. It’s a good thing the contract is written.
New York Electricians Provider Name Locked
has a lot of A ratings. If you choose to get a bid from them for anything beyond screwing in a light bulb, my advice is: get a line item cost for labor and materials; write your own specs for protection of your property and cleanup including materials; get the qualifications of the team doing the work in writing: if time matters then get a guarantee finish date and add a week so they don't do a shotty job working too fast and arriving late; specify a midpoint walk through with a senior electrician; be present in your home while they are working; and if the work requires a permit remind
New York Electricians Provider Name Locked
to file it.

was the perfect workman - thorough, quiet, tidy, and professional. His hours are flexible, so evening appointments were not a problem for him. I have a functional ceiling fan and real lights in my kitchen! I also feel safer knowing that the outlets and fixtures are up to code. I have recommended

to several people, all of whom thanked me. He has also done other work for me in other venues.

I'd say this work went very well. The electrician,
New York Electricians Provider Name Locked
, showed up as promised between 9 - 10 am to start. He did a great job. It took the entire day because I needed a long, complicated wire run from a ceiling with no fixture down to an electrical connection at the far end of a room. My only complaint is the main office sent him out without fully preparing him or briefing him on the work. About an hour or more was lost as he had to wait for a co-worker to bring out the right electrical conduit. That was a delay that could have been avoided by better planning on
New York Electricians Provider Name Locked
's part, but in no way diminishes the quality work they did for me. They are pricy, but this is one of those you get what you pay for situations. When it comes to electrical work, don't be cheap. I am extremely pleased and happy with the results. I wholeheartedly recommend these guys and will call them again for future work (only this time I'll make sure they have the right parts are available when they show up to do the work, not after).

I had no electricity in my apartment, and moved out until it was fixed. I called Leader and made an appointment for 9 am. I called to see where the person was and was told he was on his way on the subway. I waited and called several more times and was told they could not reach the person. I told them I had been waiting for an hour and then had to leave to go to a meeting at work.
I joined Angie's list specifically to find an electrician for this job. I left work to meet him and it was a waste of my time.
