Lighting problems

We had a problem with flickering/strobing light fixtures, before I went out and replaced the fixtures I wanted to make sure it wasn't an electrical problem which we have had in the past. I submitted an online query which Derek responded to in a timely manner. He was on time for our appointment and went about investigating the problem to eliminate any possible causes. Turns out it was the fixtures themselves. Very happy with his work and will definitely call upon him again for any electrical work in the future.

Fast and friendly electrical repair and fixture installation

Derek inspected and repaired some issues in my electric panel that came to light when my kitchen outlets and my tenant's kitchen outlets stopped working. He was available to rectify the issue within 2 business days, showed up on time and was friendly and professional. He also replaced an unsafe light in a shower, installed a new bathroom and bedroom light fixture and replaced an old outdoor outlet with a new GFCI model with a watertight cover. Very pleased with his service and price and would recommend to family and friends.

Kitchen Reno and more

Excellent work, phenomenal client service and reasonable!

I found DB electric on Homestars after my kitchen reno became much more complicated after a wall was removed. It turned out that most, if not all, the electrical wires for my condo townhouse were running through this wall.

Initially , a family friend was going to do the electrical work but after realizing how big a job it was going to be, I went to Homestars and found DB Electrical and I'm so glad I did.

Derek, the owner, and Tyler, his employee, rewired my entire kitchen and more! They were courteous, professional, on time, and the provided quality work that passed all inspections.

I highly recommend DB Electric! Thank you Derek and Tyler!

Great communication and professional work

I hired Derek to suggest options for providing electrical service for a hottub. He responded quickly, took the time to provide some options and note the code requirements, and gave me the information I needed to know to make a good decision. At installation he was very professional, did a great job and cleaned up his job site like new. The electrical inspector was very complementary of his work as well, which is always good to hear! I would have no hesitation in recommending Derek to my friends and neighbours and will absolutely look to him again for future projects in my home.

Light Fixture Replacement, Problem light socket

Quick response. Accommodating around my work schedule, Derek was able to problem solve an ongoing issue we’ve had with a light socket for months. He also installed a new light fixture lick-ity split for me. Was done both jobs in less than an hour. Thank you.

Dishwasher Wire

DB Electric helped with installing a dedicated wire for a new dishwasher. The job was done right and quick. Derek came by to assess and provided an estimate. He also gave me an idea how he was going to do it. The job was carried out exactly how he described. On time, reliable and good communication. Recommended!

Troubleshooting repairs and estimates

We have been looking for a reliable electrician to do some minor repairs in our 100yr old home. Derek was knowledgeable, thorough and honest when giving us his estimate and opinion on the jobs which included repairing light fixtures, installing a new ceiling fan and what electrical needs would be required for a hot tub.
He arrived when he said he would, was respectful of our space and efficient with his time to fix 2 non-functioning lights.
I would most definitely recommend DB Electric.
