Bob the electrician arrived with a fellow electrician and went to work after I explained that we had an open ground outlets in the kitchen and in the bathroom. Both rooms had been newly painted so was expecting the worst but they got ground connections from the bathroom vanity plumbing and from outside water pipe for the kitchen without damaging the painted wall. They showed us what they did and s...

Hi [Member Name Removed], We're so glad you are happy with our work. I've passed your message along to Roger, our electrician who did this job (Bob is our in-office Production Manager, who I'm sure you probably spoke with at some point while setting up this appointment.) Thank you for allowing us to be of service and we hope to work with you again! Danielle

I felt they were rude on the phone, they didn't want to answer my question, I was asking why is it cost so much to move a doorbell that was already installed, all they need to do is to move it a little bit and why does it cost so much at $175.00. They didn't answer my question, I have to keep on drilling them for an answer, its like I was bothering them with question and they don't want to be both...

Hi [Member Name Removed], We communicated with you on more than one occasion to try to explain our price to you and answer all of your questions . It seems to us that you thought this should be a very quick, little job when, due to additional work of having to break and patch stucco and replace your doorbell transformer it would take at least an hour and a half, and probably longer, to do this wor...

Gerardo and his assistant did an amazing job. This is the second time he has done work at my house and I am again totally impressed with his speed, professionalism, and suggestions about how to improve things. Note: if you have special circumstances for your job, ask to talk to an electrician to make sure you're getting an accurate estimate!

I recommend you avoid this provider, who quoted roughly $530 for a job that, as it turns out, an average person can do themselves for only about $20. My Angieslist project description was as follows: "In our kitchen we have two ceiling-mounted fluorescent light fixtures, each holding two bulbs. Both of these seem to have failed and need either repair or replacement." The provider's reply was comme...

We're not sure why this customer claims that we told him our price to replace a ballast would come to $530 - this is not what we would charge to do a job like this. When this customer called, Bob (our Production Manager) explained to him that when we receive calls like this one, we usually need to troubleshoot the light to determine whether or not the ballasts in fact need to be replaced. We charg...

I called the Electric Connection and they were able to send out a technician the next day. Luis arrived on time and quickly determined the problem was caused by loose wiring in the panel. He tightened up the offending wiring and then spent time to make sure all the breaker connections were also clean and secure. Luis also took a look at my main service panel to advise me on any additional issues. ...

The technicians were prompt and friendly, and they did the work in good time. It was a small job: just a few light switches that needed to be replaced with dimmers. They also helped me diagnose a problem with an electrical outlet (but did not fix it, because that was work well outside the scope of what I asked them for, so I requested they leave it alone for now -- but I'll hire them back to fix i...
