I first contacted Chris Calkins early in December of 2014 to discuss the scope of work and get an estimate. I received the estimate on the 15th and on the 16th gave him the go-ahead. We decided to include under-cabinet lighting which was not in the original proposal, to be priced out later. Chris arrived on the 16th with another master electrician and an apprentice and they commenced work. They re-wired the dryer, installed overhead light cans, ran the rough wiring for separate outlets and new switches. We provided the light cans which turned out to be the wrong type (we purchased new work cans instead of old work). Chris had the correct type cans and used them, allowing us to replace them after we had exchanged the wrong ones. We scheduled the service upgrade (200 amp) to be done on the 30th of Jan. Unfortunately it snowed and snowed and then snowed some more, preventing the upgrade. The problem was that new ground rods had to be installed and by this time there was at least 3 ft of drifted snow. Not having the new service panel caused the rest of the kitchen wiring work to be delayed. In April the snow melted allowing the service upgrade to be done. The transfer switch and distribution panel were installed the first week of April. It was mid July before other contractors had completed their work (flooring, sheetrock, cabinet installation, etc.) allowing Calkins Electric to continue. On 24 July Chris installed the switches and outlets in the kitchen, and said he?s ready for the appliances to be delivered. The first week of August was very productive. The under-counter lighting was installed along with two 4? ceiling fixtures. Wiring was connected to the power panel and the lights were powered up and the outlet for the refrigerator was installed. We discovered that the pendant lights we ordered were incorrect and had to be re-ordered, another delay. On August 28th the building inspector informed me that an additional outlet was required. On the 1st I called Chris and let him know about new outlet requirement. The 17th of September was the milestone day for the electrical work. Chris with an apprentice and another master electrician were very busy completing the remainder of the work. They connected the double oven, cooktop and range hood. The 30 amp connector was connected to the transfer switch, the two exterior outlets and new counter outlet were installed. Chris installed the two pendant lights and new chandelier. I explained to Chris what we were looking for in under-cabinet lighting and he explained the options and prices. I gave him a price range and was very happy with his selection. I would NOT hesitate to use Calkins Electric for any additional work. He was extremely tolerant and understanding of our scheduling issues. Working with him and his TEAM was a pleasure. He and his crew were very professional and kept the work area clean and tidy. I highly recommend them for any electrical work you may need.
