Electrical reviews in Gaithersburg
in his work. He walked me through what he was going to do and how the result would differ from the original 1970s electrical work (the NEC code does change in 40 years!).
He and his helper quickly and efficiently removed the old panel and installed a new one with all new breakers, including a main breaker absent in the original installation.
While they worked, I asked about the possibility of adding a new circuit in my utility room. He quoted a very reasonable price for this which I accepted.
After noticing my heavy usage of electronics in my house he suggested the installation of a whole-house surge protector and again quoted a very reasonable price. Given the number of computers I'm running, as well as other electronics, I agreed with his suggestion.
Even with this additional work,
I can unhesitatingly recommend
The technician initially gave me a price that I paid. A few minutes later, there was a knock on the door and the technician stated he discussed the job with the boss and reduced the price. They could have walked off with extra cash, but were honest enough to come back and get a check for a lower price. Honesty, a rare quality nowadays.
He was honest on when he thought he could do the job and I told him I was hoping for something sooner. He said that he would see what he could do and was able to squeeze me in after finishing another job in the afternoon. He kept in constant communication, worked efficiently, and charged a fair price in my opinion.
Highly recommend them.
In not knowing how long the installation would take (I am not an electrician), I asked that if there were additional time on the deal that I also have an outside outlet installed on my front porch. Prior to
He offered me a VERY high priced estimate to return to do the outside outlet - to which I asked about the remaining time on my coupon, and he said it had already been factored into the price. Based upon the angies list deal details and my remaining time on my coupon, he was estimating that it would take him over 3 hours to install an outlet. I have had several installed in my time as a homeowner, and even when things are hairy with wall boards and whatnots, it doesn't take much more than an hour or 90 minutes
The plug for the oven works well - however it should not have cost me $125 in a "great deal" to have had it done. I paid for 2 hours of work and what I received was: cutting my errands short by an hour to race home so he could look at the wall and leave for an hour, 30 minutes of "work" and a high priced estimate for a future job with "credit" for my installation. This was flat out dishonest business dealings.
Spend your money elsewhere!!
Two guys showed up as expected on Monday afternoon. They inspected the job and then came down to say they would need another $100 to do the job because they needed to remove the old existing fan. I needed a new attic fan and the guys were on site I had already paid for the fan and labor so I agreed to the $100 but I was not happy about the request.
There was no additional time required to do the work, the additional labor was equal to the labor required to cut a hole in my roof (probably less labor to remove the old fan). The work was done quickly and seems to be professionally done. The fan looks good from the outside. The whole job took about 1 hour.
Because I signed up for a Big Deal and prepaid for the work the fact they asked for more money was upsetting. I will not do anymore Big Deals as I feel you are caught in a spot where the company can spring
Because of the request for extra money I would be unable to recommend
