Repair broken light fixtures in basement

Steve came in as promised and quickly diagnosed the issue. It was three broken light fixtures. He replaced them all, and rewrote some labels that were incorrect on my fusebox. Great work. Thank you!

Electrical outlets in entire home PLUS basement reno work

We purchased an older home that needed a complete check and replacement of all the electrical outlets in our 2-story home (over 40) as well as putting in new wiring /outlets in a basement apartment and overhaul of our electrical panel (removal of some heavy generator wiring). Steve was amazing and efficient and his workers were the same! He was professional and thorough, giving much-needed advice and saving us money by his suggestions! I would HIGHLY recommend this company to anyone needing any electrical work, large or small!

Bathroom Reno & Pot Lights

Had Steve and his crew do a variety of jobs recently. Provided the electrical for 2 bathroom renos. Then they put pot lights in rooms on the main floor that I never thought could be installed without tearing the roof apart. They were somehow able to easily place as many pot lights as we wanted without as much as a drop of drywall dust left behind. The pot lights immediately modernized the look of our family room and dining room.

Issue with pot light in vanity

An issue with a pot light in our ensuite vanity resulted in a loss of power in our ensuite, master bathroom and main bathroom. We called Steve around 8:00 am and he arranged to be at our, fixed it quickly and even did a couple of additional small jobs.

Steve's engaging yet professional manner made it a pleasure to do business with him and I would not hesitate to recommend him.

30A 240V line addition to basement.

Came on time, and the job was done perfectly. Super friendly service, and even had time to throw in a few extra outlets. I'd recommend these guys to anyone looking for electrical work.

Electrical repairs

We recently had a partial circuit failure in our home and, when we found that the electrician we had used in the past was no longer in business, I called Richard Salter Electric. The service was prompt (next morning) and Steve Salter could not have been nicer. He discovered the problem within minutes and corrected it quickly and professionally. We were very satisfied with the service and, although we hope not to need an electrician again for a long time, we will certainly call them if the need arises.

Electrical Work

I have called upon the services of Mr. Steve Salter several times. Today I called to book an appointment with Mr. Salter and he called back immediately, told me he was just a couple of blocks away and appeared at my door minutes later. He is always able to diagnose and fix the problem immediately. He arrives exactly when he says he will, is very fast and competent and leaves the work site clean and neat. In addition, he is a very friendly and affable gentleman and takes great pride in his work and his family business. I would have no hesitation in recommending Mr. Salter for any job; big or small. My only regret is that I did not meet him years ago.

Spa connection

Salter Electric is absolutely amazing. The owner showed up with one employee, the service was Great, professionnal, job done quickly and efficiently. Steve even went beyond the scope of the job and checked another faulty connection we had. He wanted to know if the previous job was done correctly and up to code. He figured out the issue in no time and everything is working perfectly. I would use them again.
