varied electrical work in an old house

I bought an older house (1930s) and the inspector said there might be aluminum wiring that would need to be pigtailed. Richard was able to come give the house a look and give me an estimate right away and within 4 days I had two of his guys in my house. He also told me that some of the things noted by the inspector can wait, so instead of trying to push to sell me more service, he actually tried to make sure I got what I needed.

They worked all day, from 9 to almost 4, no breaks, and confirmed that there was no aluminum wiring but replaced at least 12 ungrounded outlets with gfci, installed a bathroom fan and did the rough in electrical work for a whole bathroom, moved an outlet that was too close to the kitchen counter, fixed some wiring that was coming through the floor and going back on the wall.

We were very happy with the service and will A) recommend their service to our friends B) call them again to finish a couple of things in the next few weeks.

Great service at a great price. 1.6k for two guys includes taxes and materials used. Can't beat that.

Electrical panel

Changed the electrical panel. Found a fault with one of my outlets and fixed it. Made the arrangements with Hydro Ottawa, who also were excellent. Charged very close to the quote. Finished well before the expected time. Panel has more capacity and is functioning perfectly, unlike the one it replaced (he showed me its problems on the first visit).
Excellent service. Received a certificate of Inspection as well. Highly recommended

Awesome Service and Amazing Price!

I had my entire panel changed. Excellent price, no additional fees like some other businesses. Steve came in and installed the panel in a timely manner. I'm sure he could have probably done it with his eyes shut. Excellent service and on time! I will definitely be calling him again to do any of my electrical around the house.

Repair broken light fixtures in basement

Steve came in as promised and quickly diagnosed the issue. It was three broken light fixtures. He replaced them all, and rewrote some labels that were incorrect on my fusebox. Great work. Thank you!

Electrical outlets in entire home PLUS basement reno work

We purchased an older home that needed a complete check and replacement of all the electrical outlets in our 2-story home (over 40) as well as putting in new wiring /outlets in a basement apartment and overhaul of our electrical panel (removal of some heavy generator wiring). Steve was amazing and efficient and his workers were the same! He was professional and thorough, giving much-needed advice and saving us money by his suggestions! I would HIGHLY recommend this company to anyone needing any electrical work, large or small!

Bathroom Reno & Pot Lights

Had Steve and his crew do a variety of jobs recently. Provided the electrical for 2 bathroom renos. Then they put pot lights in rooms on the main floor that I never thought could be installed without tearing the roof apart. They were somehow able to easily place as many pot lights as we wanted without as much as a drop of drywall dust left behind. The pot lights immediately modernized the look of our family room and dining room.

Issue with pot light in vanity

An issue with a pot light in our ensuite vanity resulted in a loss of power in our ensuite, master bathroom and main bathroom. We called Steve around 8:00 am and he arranged to be at our, fixed it quickly and even did a couple of additional small jobs.

Steve's engaging yet professional manner made it a pleasure to do business with him and I would not hesitate to recommend him.
