Recent Review: Kent fit me into his busy schedule quickly for what was supposed to be some routine fixes. As he went through the house, he found things that hadn't been done properly and were potential dangers to my kids and I. He let me know of these issues and didn't leave until they were corrected. He went above and beyond to make sure we were safe in our home. I can guarantee he would do this for anyone. He's a wonderful person leading a wonderful company.

Recent Review: They are very good and very thorough. I haven't had any problems with them. They have always been on time. If it is a big job they send the appraisal guy out here and do an inspection. I've used them 3 times and I would definitely use them again.

Recent Review: After I e-mailed Good's Electric through Angie's list I received a call the same day. They asked what service I wanted and how soon I needed the work done. I explained that it was not an emergency and I could wait a few weeks. They called me back in two weeks and set up a date to come out. The hall switch was repaired that day. David Savon the Service specialist was prompt with his arrival and was very pleasant and professional. He explained what he was going to do to evaluate what was causing my electrical problem and explained the repair. He looked at the additional two jobs I wanted done and said I would be contacted to schedule the other two jobs. I received a call two days later and the job was completed the next afternoon. The same service specialist David came out to complete the electrical work and once again he was prompt and professional. There were no surprises with the cost of the work and it included the equipment (wired smoke detector, new light fixture, bulb and pull string). The fee was based on the job not the amount of time it took to do the job. I was very happy with service provided by Good's Electric. I will use them again and would recommend them to others.

Recent Review: He arrived right on time and we walked through the problem/situation.  After checking several things, it was determined that the wiring at the time that my home was built (1974) had used two wires instead of three wires in those two switches.  Without tearing apart the wall, etc. ( a large expense too), there was really nothing else that could be done at this time.  I told him that it was really okay because I've lived with this situation for all these years and was used to it.  It had been a comment that someone else had recently made that prompted me to have an electrician look at it and advise. Michael was very professional and kind.  He charged me nothing for the consultation.  I would readily recommend him to anyone needing trustworthy electrical work done.  He will be my "go-to" person for any future electrical work that I may need.

Recent Review: Overall, it was a positive experience. However, I was a little uneasy that the paint they chose was not the quality I would have chosen. Lesson learned. The navy blue paint marks very easily around light switches, etc. , or if you brush against it. Also, I almost had the feeling that the main painter was telling me he was done after only one coat, so I had to inquire as to when they were going to do the second coat. I didn't see any painter's tape being used, and now I can see touches of paint on the oak molding. Also, a few nail "pops" we're ignored and just painted over. The other repairs were fine, except the front door shows sunlight in a small spot on the bottom corner if you're not careful about how you close it. They played around with it quite a bit, and assumed it was fixed.

Placed a call to get a quote on having ceiling fans installed and a light switch fixed over 2 weeks ago. Never even received a return phone call from my original message. Didn't bother calling them again.

We had three outlets that had no power. Repairman had to trace the wiring to find where the power didn't flow. It was discovered in a light fixture in the neighboring room. The garage circuit was always tripping when powering up multiple tools. Additional we had a number of extension cords and adapters to power all our items. Aey ran a new line to the breaker box and then added new outlets. Additionally added a light switch to the overhead lights so we no longer have to use individual pull chains to power the lights.

I called two dasys in a row axplained my problem. I think I have a short in some wiring attached to a light switch. It is a dining room light and I am unable to use the light because of the possible short. I called a left a message at the office and called the next day to the cell phone number given on the voice mail or answering machine. I asked if they could handle an inside electrical problem and to please return my call. Nobody ever returned my call.

If you don't feel like reading the whole report, here is the main point: When you need an electrician, call an electrician. When I first talked to Gary, I listed the things I wanted done and asked if he would be able to do the exhaust fan - mentioning that it would need to be wired into an existing light switch. He said he definitely could do everything else on my list, and if the electrical work was beyond his capability, he would give me the name of an electrician who could do it cheaply. On his first visit he replaced the toilet mechanism and noticed that the toilet was rocking and fixed that too. He also installed a robe hook, two towel racks, and a toilet paper holder. I thought it was taking him a bit long to do these things, but apparently one of the towel racks was giving him trouble. It fell off the first time I hung a towel on it a couple of hours after he left. He had installed one of the brackets in a crevice of the shower surround, and it was too recessed for the screw on the towel rack to catch and hold. I fixed it later, and it has held ever since. Since he did a lot of different things - some well, and some not so well -  I'll grade him individually on each part below: Replaced toilet mechanism and handle: A Fixed rocking toilet: A+ (He did this without me mentioning that it needed to be done.) Installed robe hook: B (My written list specified to put it 2 inches away, but he put it on top of the spackle from my failed attempt to install the hook. This will make repainting my mistaken effort a bit tricky - a minor annoyance.) Installed small towel rack: B (a tiny bit crooked) Installed toilet paper holder: C (more than a tiny bit crooked) Installed large towel rack: D (fell down immediately and I had to figure out how to fix it and get it to hold.) On his second visit he was about 10 minutes late, but did call to tell me that - hence the B in punctuality. On this visit he replaced the ballasts in some overhead lights, anchored the bathroom sink, attached the bathroom baseboard, and attempted to install the ceiling exhaust fan. Again - these items need individual comments, so see below. Replaced ballasts: A Anchored bathroom sink (and tightened a screw to stop a leak): A Attached bathroom baseboard: C (In several places the top of this isn't snug against the wall.) Attempted to install ceiling exhaust fan: F After Gary had been working on the ceiling fan about two hours, I peeked in to see how it was going. I was surprised to see the main light switch cover off since I had asked him to hook the fan to the light switch controlling the shower light, not the main light switch. I also noticed the hallway lights flickering on and off, so when Gary came down from the attic, I asked him if he was sure he was going to be able to do this. He said that the wiring in the attic wasn't labeled and he almost had it figured out. After about another hour, I checked again. This time, when he turned the power on, the main light in the bathroom didn't work, the shower light didn't work, and the fan didn't work. I told him that I needed to use the bathroom. He said he was going back up to the attic to switch wires anyway. When I saw him through the hole in the bathroom ceiling, I yelled up - "I'm still in here" and he yelled down - "I'm not looking" - hence the grade of C in professionalism. When he came down from the attic, I told him that I had lost confidence that he could do the job and that he should re-hook up the lights the way they were and give me a bill for what he had done. At this point the shower light worked, but the main bathroom lights didn't work. He went back up to the attic and switched the wires again. When he came down and turned on the power, the bathroom light switch controlled the hallway lights, the shower light still worked, and the fan didn't work. At that point, he was going to try to switch them again, but I had had enough and asked him to leave. To his credit, he didn't charge me for the time he spent working on the ceiling fan - hence the A for the grade in price. It was 2 weeks before I could get an electrician to come out and fix everything. So for 2 weeks, I had no main light in the bathroom, no fan in the bathroom, and the hallway lights worked off of the bathroom light switch. The electrician who fixed it had to switch all the wiring in the attic, so I ended up paying another person $140 to fix the wiring issues + $200 to install the fan. Moral of the story - don't hire a handyman when you need an electrician.

Tough review to write. Since I was billed directly by Dickey for all and quot;add-onand quot; work outside of what my contractor had completed, I'll start there. Our experience was such that even though they were working for us directly since we were paying for this and quot;extraand quot; work, these guys continued to perform as if they were still under direction from my contractor. To cite an example, I was invoiced for an outlet for my dual fuel range - obviously something that both them and my contractor knew (and agreed to) was going in from day one. During the payment process, I was double-billed on two occasions, which I caught and explained by e-mail, although never acknowledged by them either way. Now that we are in the house, we find that there are a few major inconveniences as far as where we had placed some of the light switches - at the direction of Justin the supervisor. I believe this mostly our fault however, as I would not have went through and quot;rushedand quot; again, regardless of what my contractor or Dickey Electric's schedule was. The basement work was done nicely just as we had agreed to.
