Installation of plugs in island and basement upgrades/repairs

The Watson team helped us (newer homeowners) out with an older house that has seen a lot of amateur renovation work done by previous owners. In addition to installing new outlets into our kitchen island and running a new connection for our dishwasher, they cleaned up a slew of electrical issues that they found in our basement.

All of the members of the Watson team took the time to explain what needed to be done. They were professional and timely, and replied to emails promptly. Great service and solid work. We look forward to contacting them again for our next job.

Basement reno

Over 2 winters we finished our basement. The first winter Watson electrical did the lower wiring (switches, plugs, etc). The 2nd winter we finished the ceiling and called Watson back to wire the potlights. They did a great job both times and we can absolutely recommend their work. Professional, neat and fair pricing.

Install two security lights and check wiring on dryer plug

Very happy with Watson electrical for the tasks completed for us. Their price estimate was fair and straight forward. David communicated with me through home stars to answer my questions.

They were on time for the appointment and completed the tasks efficiently to our satisfaction. We will be calling on Watson electrical for future electrical work with confidence.

Thank you.

Trust. End of Story

This was a very small stop for Jim. But it's only the most recent in thousands of dollars of jobs we had him and the Watson Electrical team do over the years. It was a "look see" stop. Half an hour later it was a job done.

We call Watson Electrical first, every time because, frankly we trust Jim, Brad, and the whole team implicitly. (And you really want to trust that the electrical work is right, don't you?)

Install electrical panel and reconnect all existing circuits

Both electricians were professional, polite. Looking at the work, I can see it is very well done, very neat and together. Although a big job which took a whole 8 hours and more, at the end they took the time to make sure that everything on the request was addressed. Before leaving, they cleared and cleaned up after themselves leaving no waste behind. I will recommend Watson Electrical to everyone asking for a referral for electrical services. Thank you so much.

Electrical work in preparation for a kitchen install

Had three electricians I found on Homestar to quote on a day's work and they all were within $100 of each other so I picked Watson's as Jim Watson was very personable and straightforward when he came to provide the quote. Who doesn't like the owner of a 30 year company still working with clients? No attitude about how far we lived out of the city core (which another contractor did) and fast quote. They arrived on time, worked very organized, cleaned up the debris as they worked and answered a query I had after the job within the same day. Would recommend to anyone.
