Assorted small electrical jobs handled with care and professionalism

Ali from Direct Electric was very easy to deal with and to set up a date for the work. He showed up on time and was great about letting us know he was on his way, which was very reassuring.
He wired in a bath fan in a tricky location, quickly replaced a ceiling light fixture, and moved and installed several switches for us. All the work was handled very professionally and with care, and explained thoroughly.
Direct Electric did great work and was great to deal with.

1-fix outdoor electrical socket 2- install new bathroom fan 3- fix electrical switch in bathroom, repairing defective wiring 4-install new bathroom potlight

Ali came promptly -2 days aftrer I contacted him. We had gotten a recommendation for Ali from two of our neighbours. He got down to business right away. He was an absolute pleasure to deal with, told us exactly what he was doing and why, and tidied up after the work was done. He identified a significant problem with the wiring in our bathroom and fixed it. We felt his fee was entirely appropriate f or the time involved and the work done. I will be calling him again.
I highly recommend this company. The level of professionalism displayed by the owner was impressive.

Roof deck lighting repair

Ali came promptly to fix the switch and the wiring that my handyman had installed on my roofdeck. He brought it up to code and it's now protected from the elements. I will definitely call on his services again.

Emergency service call

I called Ali for a problem I had in my kitchen, my range hood fan an one outlet stopped working after I connected the microwave and the fan at the same time. He came the next day.
He found the problem (which was an incorrect installation done by previous kitchen renovation) and was able to find a solution until I can do a whole kitchen renovation and rewiring.
Ali was very friendly, responsible, respectful and you can tell he is an expert in the matter. His rate is fair.
I will call him for any future electric work I totally trust him and recommend his work.

Regards,
Fanny D.

Trustworthy, honest and knowledgable

Not only did he quickly and efficiently solve my problem, he also took the time to explain every step of the way the issue and the solution. His knowledge and experience shine almost as much as his frank attitude. Job well done.

I highly recommend Direct Electric if you want the job done with care and right the first time.

Electrical outlet and circuit breaker repair

Reached out to Ali one afternoon and he was willing to come by within 3 hours. Ended up messaging and speaking with him so he came early the next morning on time. Was able to repair the issue within an hour by replacing all the affected outlets and circuit breaker, with improved parts.

While not cheap, you get what you pay for. Would definitely recommend Ali to anyone who wants electrical repairs done quickly and right

Add new circuit breaker

Ali came to my house last Saturday to add a new circuit breaker. He was on time and explain everything that needed to be done. This was a very old house and Ali knew exactly how to run the wire through the basement ceiling to the electrical box. Ali did a great job and I would recommend him for any electrical job.

OTR Microwave hookup

I discussed my project with Ali and he came within two days. I had a microwave installed 2 years ago but not hooked up. Ali took great care with making the minimal cuts into my drywall. He is such a professional, extremely knowledgeable and efficient. I was so impressed watching him, I told him that I would have a hard time keeping my rating to 5 stars. I would not hesitate to recommend Ali to my friends and family. I had read the previous Home Star reviews before choosing Direct Electric and Ali did not disappoint. I highly recommend Direct Electric, Ali will be there on time and give your project his full attention. In his words “he treats your home like his own”. Call Ali, you will be very happy with his service!

Kitchen Renovation, Installation of receptacle for EV charging

Ali is prompt and professional. The previous general contractor made a mess of the wiring in the kitchen when we removed a kitchen wall. I cancelled the electrical contract with our previous contractor and called Ali, he showed up in 30 minutes, spent 6 hours redoing the wiring in the kitchen and explained everything and made sure everything was compliant and met the electrical code standard.
I had to call Ali again to do electrical wiring in my garage for my EV and he did the sub-panel wiring for the EV and installed a 240 volt receptacle in the garage.
He also helped us fix a major power outage at home, the main breaker was old and malfunctioned, he arrived the next day, arranged emergency ESA inspection and got the utility company to disconnect and reconnect.
I’ve recommended him to my friends and colleagues and everyone has had a positive experience with his work snd I highly recommend him for any electrical work.

Replace light fixtures

I took a chance by finding an electrician on Google and I was extremely fortunate! Ali is a true professional whose work is outstanding. Some of the fixtures had many parts and he handled it with ease. He worked neatly, tidied up after each installation and offered to throw the garbage away. I would highly recommend him and will be using his services in the future.
