Upgrade to code from the dreaded 'knob & tube':

Jose provided a more detailed estimate than anyone else that I consulted, listing every item, in every room, that they would be tackling. He and Angelo made sure I was aware of the larger issues - e.g. where they would have to open up the ceiling in the basement and panel replacement. I gave them the key to my house, and they did the job while I was away on vacation. When I got back, there were no nasty surprises (thanks to that detailed estimate). The job was done on time and on budget and they obtained the ESA certificate of inspection on my behalf. They were also responsive and pleasant to deal with. The people who came in to do the post-upgrade patching/painting were surprised at how little damage had been done to the walls and ceilings. So I would highly recommend High Park Electrical , particularly if you want to get rid of the old knob & tube.

Garage rewiring, minor knob and tube replacement and ceiling fans

I needed what I considered minor electrical work done (because was listed as minor on home inspection report) to replace the interior wiring that had been used to wire the garage (it was not buried, was running between the patio stones and was starting to fray), and install some ceiling fans. Actually, it was a bigger job, and in the process they found some knob and tube that wasn't supposed to be there in one light socket when they were installing one of the ceiling fans. Jose and his team, Angelo and another (whose name I didn't catch, sorry!), were very professional and installed a sub-panel in the garage, buried the wire 2 feet underground, cutting through about a foot or half a foot of concrete slabs (which we all thought were small patio blocks and it was a hot day!) to run the line to my house. Knob and tube was removed and replaced very quickly, with minimal holes in walls. I will be using them again for other electrical work and recommend them. Thanks

Rewiring and Knob & Tube Removal

An electrician upgraded our service and disconnected the knob & tube to get insurance on our new home, leaving half the house without power. We hired High Park Electrical after meeting with Jose, and after a few weeks him and his partner Angelo started and did an amazing job. They were reasonable and flexible with fixture locations and responsive to some changes. They left the site clean every day, left only minimal holes from the wire fishing and were a pleasure to work with. I would (have already) recommend High Park Electrical to my family, friends and anyone else needing electrical work done. Thanks Jose (see you soon for the basement work).

Panel replacement plus

Angelo quickly solved my mysterious intermittent power problem. The work required expanded from replacing some outside wiring, to include replacing the panel, and even some concrete! He and Jose were efficient, professional, consultative, extremely diligent, and dealt with unexpected problems smoothly. I would happily ask them back to deal with any future problems.

Electrical

I needed an electrician to replace the electrical panel in my house, add some pugs, take out baseboard heaters and move some wires around. High park electrical was recommended by a friend and I can honestly say they did not disappoint.

Last summer I had someone renovating my bathroom and I needed a base board heater removed the same day, so not to hold my contractor up. I called Jose Lora from High park electrical on Saturday morning, and he came round the very same day to remove the heater and offer advice for no cost.

When I needed my electrical panel replaced and some general electrical work done to the house, I did not hesitate to call high park electrical for a quote, Jose Lora and his team were quick to come over and provide me with a very good quote, far cheaper than the others I had received. We had a problem with the city of Toronto and permits, High park electrical sorted this all out of us, with no extra costs to me. the day of installation went very smoothly with Jose Lora informing me of progress throughout the day, and all the steps I needed to take. I am very happy with the work that high park has done and would defiantly recommend them

Remove knob & tube

I found Jose from this website and choose Jose because I noticed he had a lot of good reviews. I needed to replace knob & tube wiring in a second floor flat above a 100 year old commercial store front on Bloor Street. I was working on a tight schedule because I just rented out the apartment and the new tenants were due to move in within two weeks. Jose was confident that he would be able to complete the job on time and leave me enough time to patch up and paint. He arrived the next day and brought his team with him. Everyone working on the job was a licensed electrician. They completed the job on time. Jose help me with the electrical inspection and help me get the electrical safety certificate. His workers also took time out and help me re-install a bathroom medicine cabinet jsut in time for the tenants move-in. Jose also installed a new electrical panel on the second floor and updated all the electrical stuff to meet current code. Jose has a pleasant personality - he did what he promised. I thought his price was fair considering the work and hours involved. I would recommend him.

Knob & Tube wiring replacement

I contacted Jose this summer to add an outdoor circuit during patio construction. He found there was no expansion room on my service panel, so he planned where to bury conduit for later connection. When my contractor dug the trench, Jose came immediately to lay the conduit which meant no delays to the yard construction. We agreed to leave the additional work until fall.

Then my insurance company sprang a surprise: without prior warning, they gave 30 days notice of policy cancellation due to having more than 10% knob and tube wiring. Emergency consultation with Jose resulted in a 5 day blitz to replace the K&T wiring, install a new service panel plus complete the backyard work. All inspected, approved and the necessary paperwork sent to the insurer to forestall policy cancellation. With a mostly finished basement restricting access, the K&T replacement was almost all done from the attic so damage was kept to a minimum. Excellent work! Many thanks to Jose and his associates.

Fuse replacement

I needed a fuse to be replaced and the guys came over and replaced it for free. They gave me a couple of suggestions and they were very kind. I was shocked that they did not charge me, but it goes to show how nice people really do exist. Thanks !
