Electrician reviews in Arcata

    An Electrician Inc
    The electrician showed up with his trainee, and he handled the outlet and had his assistant install the fixture - which worked out very well, because it let them finish in a much shorter time. They cleared up some oddities in the wiring that had caused my outlet problem and made suggestions for potential future work based on my description of other electrical issues. Professional and prompt. I'll be having them come back next month to work on replacement of my breaker box, which is going to be a major project.

    Goodman Electric
    The service went well and I liked Mike, who was here with an apprentice for about 2 hours.  I let him know I'd definitely be requesting his services again, intermittently, as I made gradual renovations to my new home, to which he agreed.  However, when I rang him about a month or so later in attempt to arrange for him to install another new lamp, as well as to repair some wiring in the attic which had been damaged by pests, he never rang me back.  I found this non-response perplexing.  I hadn't been given the impression that he wasn't interested in small jobs.  In fact I rang twice, never to receive a call back.  Disappointing; I would at least have hoped for a courtesy call to be informed that he wasn't available.

    J&M Electric & Cozspa
    I have used J&M before.  They have always proved, professional, reliable and at a reasonable price.  This was no exception.  Great work.  I would never consider using anyone else!

    R&R Electric
    The only glitch was that the dispatcher forgot to tell the tech about our appointment for the work.  We had to reschedule.  They were appropriately apologetic about it, and set the make-up appt very quickly, so it really wasn't a problem.  I'll use them again, and recommend them to others.

    Simple-Visions Home Remodeling
    We had been planning this project for several years.   Once we decided to move forward, we contacted a number of contractors for estimates.  We met with Lou to go over the project, and appreciated his ability to offer solutions to some of the obstacles to our project and to answer all of our questions.
    Jann, the business manager, also met with us to offer design ideas and to review the contract and answer our questions.  We provided her with the product information we had researched for our project and she ordered the cabinets, countertop, backsplash tiles, range hood, sinks, faucets, garbage disposal, and windows.
    Throughout the project Lou and Jann were mindful of our budget and helped keep us on track. Any changes from the original scope of the project were handled by work orders.
    We were impressed that both Lou and his helper were on time every day, took a short lunch break and got right back to work.   When necessary, Lou worked over the weekend (the backsplash installation required 3 days for the grout to set and dry). When the counter and floor were being installed, Lou checked in with the installers, and then worked at another jobsite, being available by phone if needed.  He then inspected the work when it was completed.
    Before starting work each morning, Lou checked in with us and addressed any questions/concerns we had.  If we were not satisfied with something, he re-did it to our satisfaction (for example, the paint that was initially used on the trim needed to be changed to semi-gloss)
    Lou made sure that the project stayed on schedule so that the floors and counters could be installed on schedule.
    As long time do-it-yourselfers, we were a little nervous hiring someone we did not know to be in our home every day for the duration of the project.  We found Lou is trustworthy with good people skills. He handled everything concerning the project thereby minimizing our worries and concerns. He was the perfect contractor for us.
    Lou is knowledgeable, skilled and focused.  He is detail oriented and addressed all our concerns with his great attitude.  During the time he worked for us we developed a good relationship and plan other projects in the future.

    I had a situation between my refrigerator and my TV. Every time the refrigerator started up it blacked out the picture and sound on the TV. The first electrician came out from a different company and he couldn't figure it out and charged me $50.00 anyway.
    Brian from Colburn Electric came out:, figured it out and he fixed it in 20 min.!! I would definitely call Colburn again.

    R&R Electric
    They came in and they walked through the job and he submitted the bid by email and I just thought he was very high. It took several times to contact him to finally get him to come out. I made several phone calls and there were several miscommunications through him.

    Myrtletown Lumber
    It is a new building center. I just went there for some specs on a project I am working on. They just expanded, they just refurbished an older building and expanded their previous building. They are fantastic.
    Their selection of what they stock is phenomenal. It was just amazing. This is a rather complex electrical project and they have everything I needed or will need in stock.
    It is more of a contractors center so I can go in as a sub-contractor. It is different than Home Depot in that Home Depot is more for the home owner. They do have a section that is home owner oriented but I have not been over there.
    They were extremely helpful, responsive and had good pricing.
