Updating electricity and changing panel.

If you are looking for a professional that will be on time and compete the work exactly as you desire, I highly recommend Charles. Very nice to communicate with and very respectful. Im happy with all the work his team and him did at my bungalow house from the 60s. He suggested appropriate lighting in the living room and dining room. He even did couple of requests that we didnt mention originally in the contract. Thank you so much. Awesome job.

Panel Replacement, Installation of Ligth Fixtures, Plugs, Ceiling Fans

Charles and Joey have done an exceptional job. From beginning to the end, they have been quick to respond, friendly, clear in their communication, and extremely knowledgeable and professional. They listened to our needs, provided advice, and executed the work timely and with quality. Whenever we had any hiccups in our renovations, they were flexible to accommodate our schedule and whenever they encountered anything unexpected (which happens in an old house), they were quick to let us know and find a solution.

For this job, they replaced our old panel and all exterior plugs, added several new plugs to the house, six new lighting fixtures, and two new ceiling fans, which was challenging as we have no crawl space, but was done beautifully. They also installed new lighting fixtures across the whole house.

Charles and Joey clearly care about their customers, which shows from their attention to details and dedication to the work.

We highly recommend them and would not hesitate to work with them again in the future.

Upgrade from 100 to 200 amps

Quick and Professional. Charles was supposed to come in on a Saturday but he was around the area the day before and chose to come over and check the problem. He set foot in the door, checked the issue and called it "we could do it now". He gave us our options, I chose one, and he got to work. I assumed that these upgrades took some time—like a day or two. I was just surprised to see the Ottawa Hydro guys outside informing us that they will be cutting the power—so Charles and Dave could work on the electrical panel. They got to work with their PPE on and got the job done without haste. Gentlemen who get the job done! Many Thanks!

Hi Joel, thank you very much for this nice review.
We had to address the problem right away as an emergency because it could have become a fire hazard.
After a few phone calls with Hydro, the inspector of the Electrical Safety Authorities and my supplier we where able to get the work done right away.
I want to thank you for your patience as you were out of power for approximately 5 hours.
You and Mary-Ann were terrific to work for, you were also very nice by asking us if we needed anything to drink.
I hope I will have the chance to help you again if you ever consider any electrical projects in the future.
Many thanks!
Charles
