So much electricial work!

We've used the shock doctors for nearly three years now for all our electrical needs, but I'll review our first experience with them! We purchased a mid-70s house in Innisfil that needed a LOT of electrical work, including a ton of aluminum wiring pig-tailing. Chad spent a week at our house replacing outlets and fixtures, getting everything up to code, and did so with a smile on his face and occasionally a cat on his shoulder. We've used them multiple times since and have never had a bad experience. Highly, highly recommended.

Outdoor lighting, outdoor plugs and new 200 amp panel

Scott is amazing. From the inspection of the work needing to be done to final install the work he did is all 100% top notch.
Such a professional young man, his workmanship is incredible and overall by far the best electrician we have ever hired. I highly recommend Shock Doctors and this is the only company for our electrician needs we will ever call moving forward!

Installation of new lighting in our home office

Scott arrived at 8:00 a.m. (as quoted) and right away started to cover up the furniture in our office and also the clothing in our closet where the entrance to our attic was. He very quickly took down our old fluorescent lighting and proceeded to install the four pot lights we had requested.
The work was done very efficiently and was finished by 9:30 a.m. Scott ensured that everything was cleaned up and left in good condition.
I have already started to recommend Shock Doctors to my friends should they need any electrical work done.

Ceiling Fan Installation

We had a couple tricky ceiling fan installations that needed an expert touch so we hired the Shock Doctors. They showed up on time (actually showed up early, which was nice) and provided a detailed quote before the work was done. The job was completed quickly and professionally by a courteous individual and I couldn't be happier. They even sent us a hand written thank you note along with some candy a week later. I would definitely recommend this company to anyone who needs work done.

New upgraded electrical panel

Old system was replaced. Work was done professionally, on time, no mess in the house and cleaned up so you would never know they had been there. Surge protection added to protect entire house which is really nifty and provides maximum protection.

Light installation and ceiling fan removed

Great experience. Chadwick was polite and courteous and very professional. He was on time and very efficient with the installation of the fixture. We most certainly would use Shock Doctors again and recommend them highly.

Kitchen and dining room lighting upgrades

We have been using Shock Doctors since we moved to Barrie 4 years ago. Chadwick has installed a fan in our gazebo, installed a new generator, upgraded lighting in our kitchen & dining room as well as performing annual inspections of our electrical systems. His work is top notch. He is dependable and professional. I like the fact that we have a dedicated electrician that we can rely on. Lara, our phone contact person, is friendly and helpful. All in all I would not look elsewhere for electrical work and highly recoomend this company.

Service

Shock Doctors have been our "go to" electricians for the past 20 years. They always go above and beyond expectations. We have an electrically base board heated house and an external back up generator so there is a strong reliance on them. They have never disappointed and I have recommended them to friends and relatives without hesitation and they have experienced the same dependable results.
