First and Second floor complete rewiring and electrical, pot lights, CO2/Smoke alarms, plugs, dimmers, switches, heat lamps, shower pot-lights, sconces, GFCI outlets, additional panel work, dimmers, fireplace switch, Plasma TV electrical and sound

A few years back I used electricall to install over 60 potlights during my basement renovation. This time around, we embarked on another of my "honey-do" list..except this one included the entire house..sans the basement. In this construction/reno project we took down walls, floors, doors and of course everything in between. That everything included a major electrical re-work. Oris had to run new wirings from the panel to the entire house since we added over 100 potlights. This included a special designer featured wall with 4 mini-potlights especially designed by our designer. Oris had to move sconces about 5 times (at no fault of his own) because of our designer and he did that all with a smile on his face. If anyone actually is reading this, I can honestly say that I was willing to commit a crime just to end this madness. Anyways, Oris took care to install the lights correctly especially in the 2nd floor using special insulated pot-lights. Dont trust any pot-light installer that tells you to install the same lights in both 1st and 2nd floor. Once pot-lights were in, Oris installed our fireplace switches and run a special plug for my plasma TV and even helped a guy with two left hands to install the plasma mount. He even recommended the cables I needed for Audio/Video (Monster Baby!). That done he replaced all the switches and plugs in my house with the new modern ones, not the old brownish ones I had before. We are talking about 90 plugs throughout the house as its a big 20 year old. In our living room we had no lights at all and he installed 10 pot-lights!, talk about challenging stuff...He than proceeded to co-ordinate with our contractor (a feat in itself as the guy does not really speak much english...) to install the heated floor in our kitchen. The list goes on...bottom line, this was a major reno that I trully hope I only have to do once in my life...however, Electricall and Oris made it much much easier, you cannot beat their prices, but their service, professionalism and unwavering committment to absolute quality is unmatched. They wont sell anything that is of low quality! and that is something you can count on. Also, do not hesitate asking Oris about other suggestions as he has a wealth of information in his brain. Before I conclude...Oris did an amazing job troubleshooting my Microwave...yep, seems like we had a plug that was split and 1/2 of it was defective and after some troubleshooting Oris found the problem and corrected it...this is something that was broken from day one and figured something out that probably has been there for 20 years...anyways, I can honestly recommend these folks to anyone!

over the range microwave installation and outdoor light

I recently hired Electric-All to install an over the range microwave, and an outdoor motion detector light. Oris' service was timely , professional and knowledgeable at a reasonable price.

I only hired contractor who finds "the way" of doing the job rather than "a way" and Oris definitely knows his ways.

thanks Again electric all.

Installed Potlights

We hired Electric-All to install potlights on our main floor and they did a wonderful job. The previous owners of the house were told by their electrician they could not install potlights -- the job was "impossible". As it turns out, there is insulation in the ceiling and a special potlight was required. Oris came back a few days later and installed potlights we are extremely happy with. He was always professional and polite and we would recommend his company to anyone.

Potlight installation in the living/dining room and hallways

I am an extremely satisfied customer who happily discovered that there are still honest and talented trade professionals out there who can get the job done on time and on budget! The team (Hannah & Oris) took the time to answer all my questions, offered practical advice and most impressive of all, they left my house in immaculate condition! I love my new potlights and would definitely recommend this team to friends and family!

potlights and troubleshooting

We hired Oris to install potlights in the basement and master bathroom, as well as troubleshoot our main hallway swtiches. He worked over several weekends and evenings, and delivered an excellent result. He truly has the clients best interests at heart, and cares about his work and results. Our potlights are great, and were installed with little damage to the celings. Oris is a true professional, who takes pride in his work. He treated our home like his own, and cleaned up promptly which was critical with our 2 babies lurking about.

Home electrical work

I too researched for quite a while and got quotes from a number of electricians and am I glad that I got the work done by Electric-All. It was initially hard to get a hold of Hanna/Oris and took a few phone calls and messages before I got to speak to Hanna. But other than that I have only good things to say about them. Oris arrived to do the work very promptly and got everything done in the time that he said that it would take. Very professional, and a very personable, friendly electrician. He also completed all the work at the agreed upon price. Would hire him for additional work without a 2nd thought. Highly recommended!

Potlights Interior & Exterior

As indicated by all the other reviewers, these guys are exceptional! My husband and I opted not to purchase our potlights through our builder and boy are we glad we waited. We did 6 months worth of research asking for quotes by various electricians on having potlights installed throughout our home. Each electrician came to our home and described what they would need to do to install potlights in our existing stipple ceiling. Our ceiling seemed to pose the biggest obstacle for all other companies/electricians. Some said we'd need to replace our whole ceiling because of all the holes they'd have to make. Others said they'd rip up our carpet on the upper level for lower level potlights. We were also told by our builder that exterior potlights over our garage couldn't be done because of the small overhang.
None of this was an issue for Electric-All. All correspondence was done over e-mail as we found them on homestars. Oris and his team assured me none of the items mentioned above would need to be done and he was right! We had 33 interior potlights installed throughout and 2 exterior installed over the garage. Along with the lights we had some switches replaced and some potlights installed with dimmers. Exceptional communication throughout his time at our home. Very respectful of others property. There are a ton of multi-million dollar companies that could learn many lessons about customer service from Electric-All. We also managed to stay within budget!!

Lighting work

Oris was a true gem. We had a number of tasks for him to complete to update our wiring and lighting around our house. He did it efficiently and to a very high standard of quality. We continue to be very impressed with his company and would not hesitate giving him our highest recommendations.
Thanks Oris!

The job was timely and clean!
In addtion, he was very honest and straightforward. If you're anything like me, and don't have the patience for nonsense and poor customer service, then hire this guy!
