At King Electric we pride ourselves in doing what is right for our clients. Here is a description of how the job took place. On Fri 1/27/17 We arrived at the client's home on and called before our arrival. Upon arrival, the homeowner walked us through 3 separate issues. First, was concerning the range hood. We explained to the homeowner that we do not repair appliances, but we could check the conn...

They price is very expensive, so I don't plan to use them anymore, because as with most plumbers, electricians, they have a basic cost, they charge you before they come and then on top of that is the work and the hours on that, and just to come, it's $225.00 it's ridiculous, so because of that, I won't be using them again. I think the quality was good, and they have a very elaborate disclosure on ...

They just did some rewiring, or something like that.

I would like to clarify the issue with the perceived "trip charge". As stated, it was 225.00 just to come out and then there is an hourly fee for the work after that. That is actually not correct. In fact, we have no "trip charge" to come to your house what so ever. The "225.00" you are referring to is our single circuit diagnostic. That diagnostic includes checking all the connection points on th...

I had contacted several electric service contractors who simply said yeah we can do that without asking a single question about my house. When I called King they asked many questions about not just about the house but our future plans for the house, if we planned to add on to the house or add larger appliances. When they showed up to do the estimate the technician doing it wore booties to cover hi...

The electricians were adaptable, thorough, clean and concerned about the quality and outcome of their work. They kept me informed during the process and made sure I knew exactly what they were doing. I felt confident that the work they were doing was necessary and that I wasn't being oversold or overcharged for services. My house had a lot of hazardous DIY wiring from the previous owner. They clea...

Initially I was quite happy with King Electric. The work was done in late October, early November and the team was polite and did their job quickly. In June I needed to turn off a section of my house for a small electrical repair and the panel was mislabeled. Not a big deal but I called on June 17 at 3:00 pm. Understanding it was the end of the day right before the weekend I was content with the w...

Our range oven had been tripping our breaker the night before over and over, and we could not explain why. After flipping it over and over, we noticed that the breaker was really hot and we smelled something melting. We knew we had a problem and our range is brand new with no issues since we bought it 6 months ago. I called and spoke to the owner. He said they could be at our house within the hour...

Changed the oven breaker and changed the outlet for the oven.

The 2 electricians that came to my Wednesday service call were pleasant enough. That is really all I can say was good. I had given instructions to their scheduler that my address is a townhouse, yet still the electricians stopped at the house before the townhouses and bothered the woman at that house. When they finally made it to my address, they looked at the fan, wrote down a model number, calle...
