My house was directly hit by lightning at around 3 am this morning.  I'm writing this same day review because CW Electrical exceeded my expectations today.  The lightning caused about half of my breaker box to trip.  I also experienced roof damage and water damage.  I called CW based on  Angie's list reviews and Dave came to my home.  He checked out my breaker box, replaced a GFI outlet that was damaged by the lightning and made me aware that my washer's internal electronics were damaged by the lightning. He advised me to check the other electronic/electrical devices and appliance in my house as there could be more damage.  That was very good advice as I indeed found additional loss.  I was not charged a trip fee, etc. There was no attempt to "upsell", etc.   I appreciate the quick response, politeness, respect for my home, and help.  Thanks again Dave and I will be calling again when I need electrical work done.

Hank came out and gave me a quote and wouldn't take any down payment. He scheduled everything including having the power company coming to pull the power and come back to inspect and reconnect the power. Hank and his 2 assistants came in and started to work... very fast and efficient. Since he was there he talked me into adding whole house lightning protection for $200 which comes with a warantee. They replaced everything from the wires coming in to the breaker box. One of the neatest electrical jobs I've seen. Total cost was $1500 plus the $200 for the lightning protection which was a very reasonable price... Definitely plan to have Hank and his crew back when I need additional electrical work.

The work went extremely well from the estimate to the install. The estimate was thorough and complete. All of the work was performed as expected in a professional manner. We will be sure to use Ferry for any future electrical work.

We thought we needed a new breaker installed, but it turned out that there was simply a short-circuit in a plugged-in appliance and, once it was unplugged, our existing breaker could be reset. We also thought we needed a whole-house surge protector. But PJ (I think that was his name) discovered that we actually already had one installed in the circuit breaker box. (I didn't even notice it was there when we bought the house.) So in both cases, he was very honest in not performing unneeded work. That's something we really appreciate. We also had an improperly-wired light fixture in our attic that he noticed while investigating the short-circuit, and which he fixed while he was up there. He was on time, very polite, and very knowledgeable. I would definitely hire them again.

After a lightning storm, we blew a circuit and couldn't get it to work after flipping the breaker.  I called CW Electric and Chris came out later that morning to evaluate the problem.  He arrived on-time and was very friendly and professional.  He quickly located the problem (a short circuit likely due to a lightning strike) and removed our dishwasher from the circuit so that the other outlet on the circuit would be functional.  I asked him how I could prevent such a problem in the future and he recommened installing a whole-house surge protector.  He returned at the appointed time the next work-day, and installed the surge protector in 15 minutes.  He made sure I had all the paperwork I needed in order to fulfill the warranty on the product.  He was punctual, professional, and friendly.

AHufnagel Electric
Hufnagel Electric was lightning fast in installing a 50 amp breaker in our panel and running electric to our garage to power an Electric Vehicle. We filled out the online form on the Hufnagel website on a Saturday, were contacted the very next day and they were at the house three days later to go over the project. We were then booked for two weeks later for the job. Simple. Easy. Professionally done & Covid-19 approved. Hufnagel uses electronic proposals and signatures for customer ease and accepts major credit cards, and even paper checks for those of us that still use them. We easily & highly recommend Hufnagel Electric to you for your projects.

They did a good job, but they left all the equipment that they removed behind in my garage. It was a lot of very heavy metal and I wasn't happy that I had to dispose of it myself. They didn't tell me that they were leaving it there. I also had them install a surge protector that would protect my appliances from a lightning strike. Ever since they installed this I have noticed that when my refrigerator kicks on my lights flicker very briefly.

Called Bob Pickur on a monday morning, he returned my call that very afternoon. I told him the problems we were having and he said he could come out the next day. Bob and his associate showed up on time, were very friendly and completed the work we needed in lightning fast time. I was totally blown away at the excellent service that we received. I say this because I had to call three other electricians and none returned my call. I guess they didn't need the work or did not care. I have dealt with many contractors over the years and I would hightly reccomend Bob Pickur.

ARenaissance Electric
It was an Angie's List Big Deal that I purchased. It was fine. I ended up purchasing 3 of them because I had 3 panels in the house. They did a good job. All 3 of them still has a green light saying that it's still active and functioning. They were fast but not as neat as I would like because they cut into the wall board in the upstairs place and just kinda left a mess but I think that's the way they work. There was some miscommunication. I originally did not get an e-mail from them and I finally contacted them and we got it all together and they came out and performed the service. They were efficient and had everything they needed. They knew what they were doing, they handled the panels very well. I actually observed their installations. They were here when they said they would be.

AR LINN ELECTRIC
I really appreciated that he was able to do the job with minimal disruption to the walls. Very responsible guy. Nobody's perfect - because of the problem solving the job took about a month, and some people might have wanted the job done faster, but I didn't mind. It's a family owned business and the father and son do the work.
