Electrician reviews in Claymont

    We recently purchased a Generac generator from Chadds Ford Climate Control. We were dealing with Ken (owners son). When he arrived for the estimate he was polite and didn't try to sell us anything we didn't need. The price was at least $1000.00 less than Home Depot and Lowes. The installers arrived on time. They were very polite, knowledgable and clean. When they left you could hardly tell they were there. I did prepare the generator site myself, but their instillation was excellent. They pointed out and corrected a couple problems without an extra charge. I would definitely recommend them to anyone considering a whole home generator. Ken, Charles and the whole crew were a pleasure to do business with.

    Steve was very communicative during the back and forth answering my questions throughout the estimate process. Although it was a verbal estimate, Steve held true when the work began and completed. At the last minute, my wife and I decided to add an inside on/off kill switch and Steve was able to provide it while on site without having to go back to the shop for supplies. H was prepared.. The additional price for the and quot;killand quot; switch was fair. The completed work had no post install issues and my wife and I were happy with Street Brothers Electric work.

    Jeff is very professional and honest about his work and the needed repairs. He is very clear about everything up front and I appreciated that he fit us in and was able to rewire our two ceiling fans and fix an outlet we had that had been out for some time. He also gave us some useful, professional advice about our electrical panel as well.
    The cost of rewiring and fixing the two improperly installed ceiling fans seemed expensive, but not unreasonable at $250/per fan. They were both in our childrens' rooms so it was very important they were done right. He also brought some issues to light that we were not aware of that could have caused some serious issues in their rooms.
    Overall, I would highly recommend Jeff and would absolutely use him again. Very professional, honest, and reliable.

    We had an appointment for a free estimate one time, he didn't show up. He apologized. He was late the next time. The quote was way higher than the other electrians, almost double. He was talking like he had to rewire my whole circuit breaker box to install a special kind of breaker for the new outlets. There was space for 4 regular breakers. I don't know why a special breaker had to be installed. I went with a company who guaranteed that they wouldn't go over the quoted price and charges less if the job took less time. They installed breakers that were exactly the same as the breakers I have installed in my breaker box.

    They were very responsive to my request. I believe I sent an e-mail through their website. They had an electrician there that week. He gave me a quote within 5-10 mins.
    I was going to go with them, since they had the lowest quote compared to $1125 and $650. I decided to continue looking around for the best service and price. Another company that gave me a free quote explained in the quote proposal that I would not be charged more than the quote and also will not be charged if the work was done sooner. If CMI had specified that on their proposal, I might have gone with them for the price. I didn't want to risk having them say that they were going to need more money to finish the job or have low quality (you get what you pay for).

    Pace gave me a free quote explained in the quote proposalthat I would not be charged more than the quote and also will not be charged if the work was done sooner. The quote was for 5 hours of labor and materials. $55 / hour  and $140 in materials. Other companies didn't call me back or had exorbitant prices.
    Mallie and his partner were at my house a few mins before they were scheduled--awesome. Everything worked out better than expected. The job took 2 hours and change, they charged 3 hours for the overall bill. I was good with that, since they were so quick and the job was done very clean.
    Also, there were cinder blocks about two inches behind each wall. No one knew what was behind the drywall or if it was drywall or plaster. Luckily, they brought some shallow outlet boxes that fit perfectly.
    I would recommend this company to future customers.

    The installation went very well. The workers arrived on time. The old equipment was removed and the new equipment was installed. The workmen were very professional. There was a minor issue with the new thermostat and the heat pump. The necessary specialists were contacted and were sent to my home to resolved the problem. When the installation was complete, the workmen made sure that everything was cleaned up, and anything that was moved to give them room to work was moved back in place.

    They also replaced several electrical outlets and switches.

    Overall, the experience was a good one, with a few hiccups thrown in.
    Before I ordered the big deal for the recessed lighting, I emailed the company to make sure they serviced my area since their website did not mention it.  I received a response in less than an hour, which was a great start to our relationship.
    After purchasing the deal, I waited days to hear back from the company (it said on the deal they would contact me to schedule an appointment).  I ended up reaching out to them to get the ball rolling.  I found this a bit odd considering how well the communication went before I bought the deal.
    The day of the estimate (a Friday)  the workers showed up on time.  The overall process took about half an hour in which they checked my electrical panel for compliance, did a visual inspection of the area for the recessed lighting, talked me through the additional options we were considering, and wrote out an estimate breaking down the price by option.
    The following Monday, I received a call to see what work I wanted  as well as to set up the actual service appointment.  When I told them I wanted to have all the work done, I was thrown off by the fact that  they asked what time they could come THAT DAY.  Now I appreciate quick service, but both my wife and I work full days jobs and there's no way one of us could take off the day of to be home while they work.  When I asked to schedule for a Friday down the road, I was told they'd rather do it ASAP because they "wanted to get their Angie's List deals out of the way", so that the very next day would "work best for them".  Again, I can't complain too much about a business trying to get the work done quickly, but that felt a bit pushy and didn't seem like the company was trying to put me, the customer, first.  I tentatively agreed to have the work done the very next day (Tuesday), and I say tentatively because we hadn't even chosen a chandelier yet so we had to go out that night and make a decision on the spot. (I'm a big research before I buy guy, so this made me feel a bit uncomfortable).
    The day of the scheduled appointment started off on the wrong foot.  I was told that a technician would be arriving between 9-9:30AM.  Just before 9, I receive a phone call from the tech saying they'd be about an hour.  OK, a little late but no big deal...9:45 rolls around and I receive a second call, this time from their secretary: The technician is on his way....OK, maybe they'll be a little later but at least they're communicating.  10:45 comes and I try calling the  technician to see where he is.  No response.  Eventually, a 3rd call from a 3rd individual, (the tech, Bill,  who originally came out for the estimate).  Somehow the first technician got mixed up and now this guy is coming.  Bill arrived just before noon, so over 2, bordering on 3 hours later than I was told to expect to someone.
    Bill was an extremely pleasant guy.  He was jovial, hard-working, paid attention to detail and overall seemed like he wanted to put out a good product.  He spent the better portion of the day/night working to complete the job in one day, which I greatly appreciate considering how late he actually began the work and the fact that I in no way wanted to have this become a 2-day job. 
    In the end, I'm willing to look past the few negatives because everyone has an off-day.  They weren't critical errors and the product I paid for looks great, works great, and will keep us happy (hopefully for years to come).

    Mr. Eichholz has become our electrician for life. He is a very nice person and is excellent in his profession.  He explains everything.  He is very professional. He prices are fair. His work is top quality.  I would recommend to anyone.

    It went well. There was a slight problem with the wiring caused by one of the new GFIs being in conflict with one of the hall light switches but it was quickly corrected after a phone call. I interviewed 5 other electricians before deciding on them because they had the best pricing. There is a good chance I will call them again.
