Home renovation

Nick contacted me quickly when I put out the request for an electrician. Speaking on the phone with him, I immediately had a good vibe - honest, personable, not pushy.
We met to go over the dwgs, and review the house...again I felt that good vibe about our meeting...so now it was down to price.
I received multiple quotes, and had multiple visits from other electricians. Nick price was in-line with the other quotes, but in terms of personality and "working relationship", I felt most comfortable with Nick, so we decided to proceed with Gibraltar.
It was the RIGHT decision. Nick was always available to take my calls when I had questions. I appreciated the honest feedback, when I was unsure about some things (e.g. pot light choices), and when we needed a quick item completed to move ahead with work (like an electrical disconnect, or to install an outlet in a hard to reach area), Nick was quick to respond and was able to show up the same day - THANK YOU!
Nick also has the most amazing Lead Electrician - Steve. Calm, collected, knowledgeable, and of course very friendly and a pleasure to work with.
I would HIGHLY recommend Gibraltar Electric.
Thank you Nick, Steve, and Nick (apprentice). You guys were all amazing.

Friendly crew, job well done

We moved into a new house built in the 50s which had had the panel updated to a 100 amp panel, but they had never upgraded the service from 60 amps. Our insurance company insisted we upgrade that right away so we decided to do the whole thing to 200 amp. I found Nick through online searching and good reviews. He knew what he was doing and made the job an almost seamless experience for us. He handled the booking and paperwork with Toronto Hydro (easily the hardest part of the job he said!) including them changing the date on us. They came the day before to install the new post and whatnot and prepare the area around the panel - remove some wall board and fish the ground wire to the water intake, etc. On the big day they arrived bright and early and oversaw the hydro shutoff and got to work on the panel. I had some heavy gauge extension cords running to my neighbour's outdoor outlet so I was able to keep my computer (WFH) and fridges going during the outage. Nick and Steve and little Nick (who is over 6' tall) were friendly and efficient and they had everything done and in place for the inspector by like 1 pm and hydro was there and hooking us back up by around 2.
Nick is just overall a very friendly and funny gentleman and a pleasure to engage with. We have more electrical work awaiting us down the road and I will be sure to hire him again for that when the time comes.

These are the guys to hire. They are electrical heroes.

Gibraltar Electric came to our rescue after we ran into problems with a general contractor destroying our electrical during a kitchen renovation by performing unlicensed electrical work. Other electricians were afraid of the job due to the amount of work involved to fix the mistakes made by the general contractor. But not Nick and his team at Gibraltar Electric. They took it as a challenge and were able to start work virtually immediately. They handled taking out the necessary permits, coordinating inspection, etc. Came in on-budget for their initial estimate. Which is amazing since they replaced every piece of wire that the original contractor touched. Steve, who performed the electrical work, was super friendly, explained what he was doing as he went, kept us involved at every step. And cleaned up each day (unlike the general contractor). I can't say enough to praise Gibraltar Electric. If you are going to have electrical work done in your home, hire these guys.

Electrical for backyard gazebo

Nick and his crew did an outstanding job with our backyard gazebo. The crew helped extend and wire through some conduit for some fans and networking equipment to our yard. Nick took the time to understand what I was trying to do and made some great suggestions to improve the design. The caliber of work was excellent and Nick and crew were a pleasure to work with. Would unreservedly recommend.

Subpanel in Garage

Nick and his crew installed a subpanel in my garage so I can power tools, heaters, lights, and in the future potentially a car charger.
- Communication through the sales and delivery phases was excellent.
- Nick was quickly able to understand the project needs, and came with appropriate product and solution recommendations.
- The crew was punctual, skilled, meticulous, and respectful of the home.
- The actual installation of the wiring and panel is clean and tidy.
- Inspection with the ESA was smooth and well organized.

I was very happy to have worked with Gibraltar Electric.
