Excellent! What wonderful service! Craig and his team went above and beyond in listening to our needs, making recommendations, and executing - even adding to the actual work done as we discovered other needed improvements. Work was done with minimal disruption (and preserving wallpaper and minimizing wall cuts). Fabulous work - thank you!

Excellent in both estimate process and the workmanship. Could not be more pleased. Very responsive, accurate, and professional in talking through our needs and then delivering quote. Work was scheduled over two days as planned, arrived on time, provided clean-up of work areas afterwards, much appreciated. Will reach out again for additional work we have planned in the near future. Thank you, Craig...

Craig provided a thorough estimate and answered a lot of questions I had with our new house. He inspected out breaker box, and pointed out a few non-code electrical issues as well. He routed our bedroom light switch after we did some construction, removed an old light fixture and installed a canned light. Overall I was very satisfied with Staples and will use them in the future.

Craig was terrific. Appeared quickly after our call for help and solved our problems efficiently. He also advised us on replacing our decades-old circuit board, providing a next-day, professional estimate of costs. His rates were quite fair.

Extremely quick response time to get an estimate! Estimator was company owner, and he established very good rapport. It was easy to approve and schedule the work. The contract clearly stated what was covered and not covered (i.e., I understood that we would have to paint a little after the job, since it required cutting through the drywall). The workers were efficient, pleasant, and the company ow...

We had excellent, punctual, professional service. We had an incident with a spill on the front of our house on the part of one of the crew, and the owner of the company came to check it. He promptly scheduled to repaint the entire front side of our house. This was done with great professional care. I would recommend Staples electric to anyone who needed a prompt, caring, and professional service.

We appreciate your feedback and time to write a review. Spray foam can exploded and orange foam on white wasn’t the best look. While accidents happen and we tried to clean the wall, it just didn’t look right. So we offered to paint the area. We see anywhere between 3-6 clients a day. My expectations are that every job goes seamlessly and without an issue. Life just doesn’t work that way. However, ...

I was mad at myself for changing the dimmer switch and not doing it properly. That left me with no choice but to contact an electrician. I asked Craig Staples for a quote on Saturday. Although he is not listed as working on Sunday, but I guess since there was no football on TV he decided to make some easy money. He said he'd be there at 2 and he was right on time. Very nice man; fixed the switch i...

This is a tough review to write. On the one hand, the owner was very nice when he came out to give a quote. On the flip side, the quality of the work was poor and the technician left a safety hazard unaddressed when he left. When I contacted the company about it, rather than offer to fix it outright, the owner said he would fix it for the standard hourly rate. I will do my best to detail exactly w...

Appreciate the feedback. Always more than willing to address any issues, as we did with this client. We do pride ourselves in customer service. Our reviews speak for themselves. In a recent review we were noted to visit a client for service on a Saturday and I didn’t charge. They were super nice on a previous job and we just appreciated that kindness. It’s not about just charging clients.... Howev...
