Remove and replace ceiling mounted light fixtures

This is an amazing company. We got same day service. The two electricians, Jackson and Curtis, where so professional, efficiant and kind.
The receptionist that we spoke to, Elise, was our first contact, and she to was extremely polite and professional. My wife and I could not have found a better company than this. We would highly recommend them to anyone that needs electrical work.

I know we have said this before, but it's true... having great people makes for a great company. We couldn't do what we do without Ellice, Diane and Kiera in the office arranging everything. Thank you for the review Robert , we were happy to be of service.

Not cheap but arrived on time, very professional and did good work.

Charge 165 for the call replaced and outlet, changed a fixture, and brought in a new 20amp circuit from a panel to a new outlet.

Would be nice if the 165 fee would go towards work being done.. as the total cost was perhaps a bit high. But two guys were here working for over 3 hours to complete the work they wore booties on the house and were very professional. They cleaned up behind themselves and did nice clean professional work.

Thank you Matthew. The last year has been an extreme challenge to provide a high level of quality and service, and maintain a correct price structure. Unfortunately, our costs continue to rise dramatically, and we hope that soon they will stabilize. Thank you for choosing Captain Electric.

Fix Outlet Issue in multiple rooms

Had a few outlets go out in two rooms. Nothing wrong with the breaker or any wobbly outlets. They identified the issue after thoroughly investigating and solved it. Very helpful and provided great insights. Also looked into another issue and provided the next steps and quote with no pressure. Great service!

Troubleshooting circuits takes a certain skill and experience. Sometimes the problem is hidden or unexpected, or in multiple locations at the same time. Thanks so much for the review. :)

Basement electrical

Have dealt with Capital Electric and would highly recommend. They put in a generator for us and our most recent project was doing the electrical for our large basement. They are super to deal with and very professional. They keep you informed and follow through as planned. The electrical inspector also spoke highly of them.

Kevin in particular was great with giving advice and not rushing a decision.

Electrical Switches & fixtures

The staff arrived promptly on time, solved all the problems in an efficient manner. They explained the work to be done ahead of time in detail and provided a quote that I agreed with. Should I have any further electrical maintenance needs in the future I will not hesitate to contact Captain Electric and recommend them to family and friends.
