Our first time using Oakwood. They responded same day which was helpful given that the circuit that was no longer working was the one our refrigerator was on. Raul came out to investigate. He explained everything as he was going along and what work would need to be done to fix it and was patient with our questions. Work was scheduled for following morning. Raul and Ken came the next day and did a ...

The particular breaker was the one which controlled the furnace. Our house temp was down to 61 degrees. I called Oakwood because they said they provide emergency service. I was told I would have to wait until 4 PM but they would definitely come that day. The guys were actually early and they called to make sure I was home. Raul and Ed were very friendly and fast. I did have a coupon, but my servic...

Great job done! It was a more complicated job than I'd initially thought, which made it even better to know I'd hired a pro. All went well, and everything is working - and looking - great. I have a couple other similar lights needing replacement in an awkward spot by a stairwell, and I won't hesitate to call them back when I'm ready.

DESCRIPTION OF WORK
Had two ceiling lights swapped out for new ones, along with a dimmer switch.

Tech found no problem with function of outlet except there was reverse polarity in the wiring and he corrected that. I asked if he could install the microwave but explained he could not do that. Tech explain the reason why 2 of the 4 ceiling fan bulbs were not turning on when I pulled the chain only once. This type of fan has a 4-way function string that allows you to choose how many bulbs you wan...

Outstanding experience from first call/visit through the final county inspection. We purchased a 22kw generator. The Oakwood team performed exactly as promised. Always arrived on time, explained each step in the process, e.g., permitting, installation, etc. Responded to each email or phone call promptly. I wish all contractors we've used were as good as Oakwood Electric. We highly recommend them t...

We are very pleased with every aspect of the purchase of a Generac whole house generator from Oakwood Electric. Rob gave an excellent sales presentation. They beat the competition in price, provided us with the latest model, and included the base pad, for which the competition would have charged extra. The installers did an excellent job and gave me an orientation before leaving. Today the City in...

They did a great job installing the generator, on time and on budget. Since installation the generator has worked very well and Oakwood has provided ongoing maintenance. They have been available to answer whatever questions we have had. Terrific service that I would recommend to anyone

The Oakwood team did an excellent job of everything. Arvy carefully adapted the larger service panel into the already decorated paneled wall, so that it looks great. All interior work was done with care toward interior furnishing so no damage occurred to basement rec room. Couldn't be happier with job.
