Description

PLEASE READ!!! Im sorry Angies List has wasted your time and mine. We dont service outside of Concord, Pleasant Hill, Martinez, Walnut Creek. If you are outside of these areas here is why it still shows up in service area map. When they called me I told them we didnt need more service call type of work we have plenty of work with out Angie's List in our own local area. The rep who signed us up said we can customize the leads to be very specific and only go after the type of calls he was telling me about. He said the average size job sold for Angies List was over 28k and they sold over 5.8million in electrical alone last year. So I bit and signed up thinking I just need one job and that would pay for the advertising for the entire year, why not. Well those statements he made were not true, Angie's List locks you into 1 year contract and I can not cancel. To shrink my coverage it will cost me an extra $50 a month on top of the $500 they are charging me already and i would have to buy out the remainder of the contract to do that. So im stuck leaving a service area too large for my company, and my account manager says, "thats what you signed up for" so he cant help me. Also, The day i signed up they took my credit card and said they would not run the card until i was verified and they checked my references which i didnt give them yet they ran my card anyway and signed me up. How are you taking money before checking company references like they advertise? Desperate to sign contractors up it seems? Right now I am trying to get a hold of the recorded conversation I had with the salesman who signed me up and will be posting my conversation on social media sites to vent my frustration with this corrupt company who use misleading dishonest tactics to sign companies up. All of this is my opinion and my personal experience and I FEEL TRAPPED. Sorry for my rant...

The 2 technicians came to my house and immediately figured out what the problem was - a loose wire in the wall. They fixed it and replaced several outlets that weren't working too. They were very professional and knowlegeable - unlike another company I had come in. I highly recommend their services. I also had them come in to rewire my electrical panel in the garage.

The panel GFCI breaker to our spa was tripping, which we needed fixed. They sent out an electrician who was working in the area to shut off the power at the spa. He found the breaker and feed to the spa was n...

SERVICE PROVIDER RESPONSE

We are sorry to hear that your experience with us was not what you expected. As far as our diagnostic fee goes, we always communicate this fee to our potential clients and how part of that fee can be applied if more work is needed. Before we dispatch our technicians to a call we will first recommend that the homeowner try a few steps of troubleshooting like (reset breakers and GFCI). We have multi...

He came on a Sunday. He fixed everything and let me know about a couple of other potential problems, which saved me money from having to make another call. He even had to run down to the hardware store to buy the right part. He showed me what was wrong before he performed the work. He cleaned up after himself and he never spoke down to me. He was polite, courteous and efficient.

DESCRIPTION OF WORK
He came to repair electric circuits in a control box.

Excellent work.

DESCRIPTION OF WORK
We hired Stewart to install our fixture in our diningroom a couple of years ago so of course when we had a short downstairs in our electrical wiring we called him again. He was prompt on getting here and found the plug that was causing the short. He is very professional and clearly knowledgable in his trade. I have referred this company to many other friends, he just recently wired up our friends new jacuzzi and installed new lights into all their bedrooms. They were too happy.
