Reviews in Flint for Installing Electrical Switches

ABrydens Electric & Supply
I contact the shop on 7-1-10 and described the electric problem we were experiencing. I was given an appointment for the next morning. The serviceman was on time, corrected the wiring problem, checked all the electrical circuits, and replaced a light switch. He charged me for a basic service call, and replaced the light switch at no cost.

I needed a light switch replaced. At 7 AM I googled electricians and at 7:30 I got a text from dons electric service asking me to give them a call. I called them immediately and they came out about 845 that same morning.

Scheduling the appointment was very easy. The person showed up on time for the estimate, and was very considerate (taking off shoes, etc.) and professional. Provided clear explanations of what he could to for us. We asked them to repair the things we knew we needed to have done (replacing outlets, replacing light switches). This work was done expertly and professionally. I had the sense that I was paying for more expertise than was strictly necessary for an easy job, but that's okay with me. Here's what I did not like, and why I will not be hiring this firm again: I believe they used fear to recommend (even push for) work that we did not need. I am not an electrician so you can take my statement for whatever you think it is worth. But I do not believe this event falls into a grey area; my opinion is that they were pushing the edges of intentional dishonesty. Specifically, the Mr. Sparky electrician insisted on looking at our breaker box "as long as I'm here" even though it was not related to the reason we called. He saw some discoloration on some metal in there (caused by oxidation, definitely not water), and claimed that we were in grave danger of having an electrical fire. He recommended that we immediately have the whole breaker box replaced (for $700). I got a second opinion from an independent licensed electrician who was very experienced and had an assistant (maybe an apprentice?) with him. I didn't tell him what anyone else said. I just had him look at the breaker box. I specifically asked about this discoloration. He said that was normal for a house my age, that a bit of oxidation on the metal parts would not affect the function, and that there was nothing to worry about. Both he and his assistant said that they would never recommend that a breaker box be replaced based on what they saw. (In fact, they were confused about why I was pushing this line of questioning and I fessed up that I was checking out another electrician's recommendation.) So this is what I am providing you: my experience is that one electrician disagreed with another one, and I do not have the expertise to say who is right. But my read of the situation is that the one who did not recommend $700 worth of work on something I didn't call them in to look at is likely the more honest party. I feel strongly about this, but you can take this for what it is worth.

Ken was here right on time, he presented us with options, explaining the differences, pros and cons of each, and didn't push us toward the most expensive. He was very professional, courteous, and finished the job faster than he had expected. He cleaned up at the end and we would definitely call him again for electrical work.

When I called, Curtis was immediately responsive and came the day after. He was super friendly and polite. He is knowledgeable and personable. He fixed our issues and even did a quick tightening of our circuits letting is know that often times loose wiring is the cause of problems/fires. He also fixed a light switch we didn't know controlled anything. He was quick and efficient when working and his prices were very reasonable.

John did a lot of high quality work in quite a short time. Arrived on time, cleaned up after work. The cost of service included the cost of a new water pressure tank. Very impressed with his professionalism. Very easy to deal with. Definitely recommend him !

Recommend!  Phil responded quickly to my initial work request, we made the appt., and he was timely and got the job done in less than 2 hours.  The job required wiring the ceiling for a fan w/light kit, as well as rerouting original light switch from wall outlet, and adding a fan switch.   He then hung the new fan w/light kit that I purchased...and presto, I've now got a ceiling light and great breeze in the room!  He cleaned up afterward, and I'm very happy with the work.

APhase 2 Electric
Returned my call within hours. When delayed next day from coming, he called and asked if he could come the following day. He called on his way over. Explained every step of what he was doing and why. Explained all processes thoroughly. When light fixture needed to be totally replaced, he told me the current charges and asked if I wanted it replaced with additional money or if I wanted to wait. He gave me an accurate estimate to begin with and did not want to vary from it without my permission.  He did a thorough job in a reasonable amount of time and I was very satisfied.

We had recently bought our house. It was made in 1966 and did not have overhead lights in the 4  bedrooms.  We checked on Angie's List and contacted Phil Soma of Soma Electric.  Phil came out that day, assessed the job and then had us a very fair estimate the very next day.  The day of the job, Phil and his helper arrived a few minutes early (something unheard of in this day).  They were very orderly and professional.  During the work Phil noticed that the light switches were connected to the outlets.  He disconnected them from the switch, so that the outlets would always be on (and not rely on the switch being on). Giving that little extra.  That is something again that isn't seen these days.  He completed the work promptly.  The job was professionally done and he cleaned up afterword.  After spending a few hours with Phil, I can tell that he is a professional, honest, hard working, electrician with good a moral character.  His assistant also showed these traits.  I highly recommend Phil Soma and Soma Electric to anyone who needs electrical work done.
