    MICHAEL J CASEY ELECTRIC
    I own a rental building and the tenants reported an electrical problem that involved a switching problem where when one apartment turned on hall light it turned off kitchen lights in other apartment. Mike contacted me for the tenants phone numbers and coordinated access to make necessary repairs. He called me when he arrived and called back later to tell me what he had done. This was my first experience with him and the problem was one that could have easily turned into a major bill. Mike did what was necessary to resolve the tenants issue at a very reasonable cost to me. I fully intent to use him again on any future needs and recommend him to friends in the area.

    Executive Builders, Remodelers
    I was so happy with this company and how beautiful my bathroom turned out. This job was worth every cent we paid. They did everything we asked without complaint or argument. If there were additional charges, we were notified before making a decision. Everyone was responsive by phone or email when contacted. The only opportunity I felt there was for improvement was within the internal office communication between different departments/employees, but any confusion was always worked out timely and communication between company and client was always stellar. Tim, our project manager, was terrific and had a commitment to excellence that was refreshing. I would definitely recommend this company to anyone.

    Makefield Electric
    The service was excellent. Matthew and Mark arrived on time and completed the work in the stated amount of time. They explained and shared with me what they were going to do and did it. They were extremely personable. I was pleased to see them put on slippers over their shoes. It told me that they cared about cleanliness as to not track dirt into the house.

    Riele Houston Electric LLC Heating and AC
    Mr Houston was very professional he explained everything that needed to be done and the cost for labor and materials. After interviewing other recommended providers I chose his company because he was the most comprehensive and thorough in his estimate and explanation of the work that was needed. Once the permits were issued he was fast with the work. He came out one day earlier than we expected him. He communicated well and I look forward using his company again in the future.

    JOLT Electrical Services, LLC
    JOLT has a unique business name...catchy, memorable and professional representation of the service they provide; this can also be said for their service and crew.
    I have had some challenges lately with some Angie's list providers responding or sticking to their commitment to follow up; not so with JOLT. 
    The owner, Steve and his staff that I interacted with, his Office Manger--Lisa, and his Crew, Spencer and Dave, were very polite, and professional.  Steve came out to provide the estimate and outline next steps; following up with Lisa to make the appointment and confirm my deposit proved to be a pleasant experience, and then the crew arrived today, promptly!  They got to work, and they got the job done.
    I did eavesdrop a little while Steve spoke with his team and I was pleased to hear how he instructed and/or followed up on his team on quality assurance checkpoints regarding the work being done.
    I felt totally comfortable having Steve and his crew in my home for the better part of a day; and even my cat got attention!
    I have already asked Steve for an estimate for my next job and plan to reach out to them soon to schedule the job.
    If you want to be jolted by top notch professional, courteous and quality electrical work for your home or business, then consider calling JOLT Electrical   (Okay, I should probably keep my day job as it may sound cheesy--but it's the best way that I can describe my experience with these professionals.)    [[Smile]]

    Brady & Son Electric LLC
    I needed work done quickly before settlement and they were able to schedule me within the same week.  The owner was very pleasant and wanted to know everything I needed to get done so he would have the proper equipment.  They arrived a little late but let me know an estimated arrival time plus it was a Friday so that was somewhat expected.  Once they arrived they were so fast and professional.  Completed the job in no time and had all of the necessary equipment on hand.  They were very friendly and explained everything that was done. I would definitely recommend them.

    T J Kyle Construction LLC.
    I cannot recommend this contractor. There are both positives
    and negatives to my experience with him, and while everything turned out okay
    in the end, it was a process to get there. I?m writing this review so anyone
    considering this contractor can weigh their options carefully.
    The negatives:
    1 - The worst part of my experience with this contractor came when he asked me
    for a large advance on a scheduled payment that was not due until the
    completion of the project. When I denied him the money requested as it was not
    a part of our agreement (the agreement and payment schedule which he created),
    he got angry with me, became aggressive, and argued with me about it. I could
    not believe how unprofessional and inappropriately he behaved! This situation
    caused me much stress and anxiety and when he failed to get what he wanted, he
    told me ?I?ve never had any trouble getting any other customers to give me
    money when I asked.? This tells me that he does this all the time! Buyer
    beware! You should never give a contractor funds before they are due in your
    agreement which I learned the hard way with a different contractor. I feel
    strongly that this contractor owes me an apology for putting me in that
    position and I have yet to hear any apology for any of the negative situations
    that occurred on this job.
    2 ? This contractor has poor organization and management of
    his jobs. We would see workers coming every day for a few days, and then nobody
    for a week because he was putting the workers on other jobs. It was not because
    of weather once they enclosed our addition or any other circumstance outside of
    his control ? it appeared to be just poor management and disorganization with
    multiple jobs going on at once. He would give projected timelines for when
    certain aspects of the project would be completed, but was not able to meet
    them consistently. I believe our project (building an addition onto our home)
    was a little too large for him to organize and complete successfully in the projected
    timeframe and may be one of his largest jobs to date. I?m hopeful that he
    learned something through the process as I?m sure we did.  
    3- As a result of the poor management noted above, the job
    that was supposed to take 45-60 days for completion instead took 8 months to
    complete since they had to stop for the winter. Even if they hadn?t had to stop
    for the winter, it would?ve taken 4 months instead of the 1.5-2 promised in the
    agreement. Anyone who has had their house torn up for any amount of time (particularly
    during holidays!) knows that this is an incredible inconvenience and adds a lot
    of stress to your life.
    4 ? Outside of our agreement (for free), his workers poured
    a small concrete square for our hvac unit to sit on. The problem was that it was
    terrible, crooked, and slanted toward the foundation of the building. When I
    addressed it with him (and it was obviously terrible work), he looked at it as
    if he couldn?t see the problem until my husband got a level out and showed him
    how bad it was. Nobody needs crappy work ? free or otherwise. The positive is
    that he did eventually remove that and provide a proper replacement.
    5 ? If you enter into an agreement, I suggest really looking
    closely at your agreement and having the contractor explain each item in detail
    to be clear on what you are being asked to provide and what they are providing.
    I found that the wording at some places of the agreement was not clear, and we
    wound up having to get items like the insulation we wanted - AT OUR COST. Who
    doesn?t include insulation in a plan for a building addition?
    7 ? In addition to my above mention of the contractor
    requesting money when it was not yet due, he also tried to get me to pay the
    final payment when all of the work was not yet completed. No doubt, he thought
    I might have forgotten what was left to be done after the winter, so he?d try
    to do as little as possible to get the remaining money. When I told him I
    didn?t want him to do the final work and I would not pay him and I?d find
    someone else to do it, he insisted upon doing it claiming that he does not
    leave any job behind. Perhaps not, but he may take forever to complete it at
    your expense and inconvenience.
    8 ? My husband had to install our network connection and do
    some other things himself. The electrician only ran the line up through the
    wall, so my husband actually had to install the jacks and plate. How many other
    customers are going to do that? And, was there an apology, a thank you, or a
    discount we received for having to go get those materials and do that
    ourselves? NO.
    9 - The contractor liked to remind me that he did so much
    work for free (because he offered to!), but never remembered that we also
    installed the network ports which we should not have had to do, and then we had
    to repair and repaint the entire interior wall they broke through to create the
    doorway from one room to the other. My husband had to put trim around the
    alcove leading to that door because the way they did it, it looked a little
    ?Alice In Wonderland? and was not straight from one room to the other nor up
    and down the wall. If they would?ve put a little more care into it, they
    could?ve gotten it right.
    10 ? The contractor?s motto to me throughout the process was
    ?No job is perfect.? Is that what you want to work with?
    11 ? I was slightly concerned by the fact that he had
    different people coming from all different places to do work. The foundation
    was done through a local subcontractor(who took forever) and had to be torn out
    and redone. The hvac was done by a few guys who obviously worked for a company
    in Bucks County, but were doing our work as a side job on a Saturday (which had
    us waiting around from 1pm-9pm that day from the time they were supposed to
    arrive to the time it was completed ? a complete waste of a weekend day). The
    carpet was done by some poor guy who came up from Delaware to do the
    installation after work hours in the evening. These things are just another
    aspect that made me think this was poorly organized and not entirely a
    dependable company. 
    12 ? And, finally, I learned that the agreements this
    contractor puts together are not in compliance with state law. This is a bonus
    for the homeowner as you are not legally obligated to pay him if his contracts
    don?t contain certain required information. I paid him all that was owed, but
    reluctantly as I felt there really should?ve been a penalty for dragging our
    job out for as long as it was. I will be sure to have any future contractors we
    work with include a penalty for such issues.
     
    The Positives:
    1 ? The work did finally get done even though it took
    forever (and he offered no apologies or discount for our inconvenience).
    2 ? The work that was done was acceptable and passed
    inspections (as he felt the need to tell me repeatedly).
    3 ? He did communicate constantly throughout the process
    even when I became difficult and disagreeable after the inappropriate financial
    request he made.
    4 ? When his concrete/cinder block person screwed up the
    foundation work initially, he did have his team tear it out and replace it
    rather than trying to pass it off as acceptable.
    5 ? The subcontractor he used for our outdoor patio paving
    stone installation seemed to work to a different standard and take pride and
    try to do the best he could at any point in time. When I informed the
    contractor about the sub leaving trash on our property prior to the
    Thanksgiving break, they quickly came and cleaned it up.
    6 ? The price was much cheaper than other companies, however
    sometimes you get what you pay for and when an estimate is low, they are likely
    going to try to cut corners on the job if you?re not attentive and
    knowledgeable about what?s happening or you are probably going to be
    responsible for a lot of material purchases that other contractors would
    include in their pricing.
    7 ? The workers were nice and respectful, if a little
    odorous at times.
    Bottom line ? I expect a higher level of professionalism
    from the people I work with and a consideration for the customer. With a little
    humility, care, and professionalism, this contractor could be okay, but he?s
    not there yet.

    Farryn Electric
    He was prompt to contact me when I bought the Big Deal. He contacted my tenant and arrived on time. He assessed the issue and gave me a professional opinion. He could not fix the issue until the Electric company came out and verified it was no on their end.

    Philadelphia Gas & Electric Heating & Air Cond
    Although the service was not provided due to misunderstanding of service address, and no one called to reschedule as they said they would, the company was apologetic. I understood that things happen and people make mistakes. However, because of the no call back, the service was performed through different means.

    Me Hi Electric, Michael Moldoveanu
    He came to put up a ceiling fan. The job only took 1 hour. He was polite, and the work was done quickly, but after the service, he tried to charge me for a part. I explained that he didn't even use the two hours and I asked for a receipt for the part he purchased, but he wouldn't present it. He said that he also charges for the drive and shopping for the part, but it wasn't told to me beforehand. I didn't appreciate that.
