Excellent Troubleshooting, Very Efficient

Real Canadian Electric is a family owned company.
Terin was outstanding at finding the issue with no power in one of my rooms. He then provided recommendations for additional preventative maintenance in the wiring of my condo - all of which I agree with.
I will not hesitate to contact Terin for the follow up work required.
I highly recommend this company

Change wall switches to dimmer switches

Terin arrived same day of request and he was extremely knowledgeable and careful with the installation. The job was not as straightforward as we had thought and he accommodated the changes necessary. He also gave us several recommendations for some future ideas for both safety and efficiency. We would definitely hire him again.

Flickering Lights and Switch Replacement

We noticed two different fixtures in our home flickering recently despite replacing the lightbulbs. We also noticed one of the light switches was making a "crackling" sound. We called up Terin and he was able to come out the same day and have a look. Fortunately he was able to identify some loose wiring in the light boxes that was causing the flickering and he quickly repaired the connections. He also replaced the light switch for us. Overall, he did a very through job and clearly explained what the problem was and how he was addressing it. He was very upfront with the cost and we knew exactly what to expect. Very pleased with his service and will definitely be calling again for any future needs!

Basement Electrical

Very quick turnaround, was able to complete the work the same day as the estimate, and even cleaned up some older wiring for us. Will definitely use them for future work.

Breaker Switch

Our breaker tripped today and didn't seem to be able to reset it. I phoned Real Canadian Electric and Terin took to time and walked me through troubleshooting the breaker. I thought we were going to have to replace breaker, but it just needed some extra force to turn it to off to reset. He also went further to teach me how to prevent it from happening in the future, that the top and bottom parts of the switches are on different circuits and we shouldn't plug in appliances that draw a lot of power on the same level. He saved us time and money (had to input $10 for cost or else homestars wouldn't let me proceed, but I didn't actually have to pay anything). It's rare to find companies that are so honest and helpful! Very grateful to have called them first before trying anything else.

Older Bungalow Evaluation & Aluminum Remediation

We'd known from our home inspection that our new-to-us bungalow's electrical was in pretty poor condition. Partial aluminum wiring, janky homeowner additions, an utter lack of maintenance, you name it. We hired Terin to perform a full inspection and circuit assessment to get a better idea of the work required, as well as to complete the required repairs and maintenance.

Not only did he perform an extremely thorough inspection (nearly 8 hours in a ~1300 sq ft bungalow) and do excellent quality work, he did an great job of answering questions and making sure we understood the reasoning behind his recommendations. He comes across as knowledgeable and honest, and at no point did we feel like he was trying to upsell us on more work or unnecessary upgrades.

We'll absolutely be having him do more work for us in the future.

Replaced outside outlets

Terin came on the same day and replaced and upgraded my 2 outside outlets. Did an excellent job as well as fixing an unrelated job for me. He is very helpful and pleasant to deal with. I would recommend his work to my friends and family.

Fantastic Electrician

Teren installed a new outlet for our water closet. He was confident in his ability to run wire from the attic with just 1 person while others were double in price due to 2 laborers. He did a fantastic job and stayed within the time and money that was estimated. He also was extremely generous with his time in explaining what he was doing and why. I asked him additional questions about our electrical issues in my house and he took the time to explain and offer options. I'm so glad that we now have a fantastic Electrician to rely on.

Electrical inspection

I requested a full inspection of all the electrical in my house. Not only was Terin professional and punctual but he took the time to explain what he was finding, whether it was an immediate concern that should be addressed right away or something that could wait and then walked me through my options. He also fixed a couple of issues that needed to be addressed immediately. He went above and beyond my expectations (he even fixed a piece of my roof that blew off the house the night before in a wind storm). I would not hesitate to recommend him for any electrical issues.
