As A Landlord The Process Was Very Seamless. I Will Use Them Again

I own a property out East and I needed someone to take care of an electrical outlet that would short circuit when it was plugged in. I called Captain Electric based on a recommendation from a friend.

The whole entire process was very straight forward and I didn't need to take time off to deal with it. I prepaid for the service call and they came in the following morning to fix the issue. They called me afterwards to give me an update on the issue.

Overall, I was very satisfied.

Replace amp panel and switch. Install new lighting throughout the house and on west wall.

Excellent service from initial contact with the office to end of service. Dan was courteous, knowledgable, and thorough. He estimated everything I asked for, made concrete suggestions and moved ahead to get the work completed. The team of electricians for the project were fantastic. Efficient and professional work. I was consulted along the way for key decisions so I have exactly what I envisioned. Would highly recommend Captain Electric.

Shed Lighting and outdoor outlet

I will be calling Captain Electric on my next electrical project. They come to site with supplies that got the job done right. I even added a couple lights on the outside of the shed that I did not plan on doing and Tim had no problem adding this to the job. My shed now has everything I need. I am very happy with the results.

Install new electrical outlet for StairLift

Tim arrived as promised and evaluated several options for the installation. He settled on the most efficient and gave me a quote which i accepted ( a lot higher than I expected) Main difference with others is the issuance of a permit ($139 + tax) and inspection which guarantees job was done properly if inspected. Job was complete in 2.5 hrs and perfect clean-up.
Tim was very friendly and pleasant to deal with. Would recommend to others. I guess you get what you pay for.

Knob and Tube Removal

Hired Captain Electric after discovering our house had knob and tube wiring. Zac and his team were friendly and professional throughout the job. We felt at ease the entire time. The work was done reliably and our house felt safe in their hands. As we worked from home during this job, the team went above and beyond to accommodate us. We were really impressed with how few holes in the walls were needed despite re-wiring our entire house (and patching after was included in the quote). Highly recommend!

Thank you Ben for posting a review on Homestars. Rewiring an older home can be a challenge. Zac and the team know through experience what to expect, and try to keep any patching to a minimum. We are happy that we could help make your home safer and more secure. Thank you for choosing Captain Electric.

Captain Electric is the best

We absolutely love Captain Electric. Have used them for several years across a variety of projects, including new wiring installation, new outlet installation, installation of new potlights, etc. You get what you pay for - and in this case you're paying for quality work, friendly, prompt and professional crew members, and a very thorough estimate / invoicing process. I love that they tell you everything about what they're doing, will give you advice on future projects, and I've never felt pushed into making a decision or buying anything. For this latest job we had new LED potlights installed in the living room, a new outlet installed behind our living room TV and some professional cable management/routing done, new circuits installed in the laundry room so that our washer and dryer were running on their own dedicated outlets, and some bathroom light fixtures installed. We are 100% satisfied and they've continued to earn our current and future business.

Electrical conundrum solved!

Tim was nothing but professional and friendly as he went around our house identifying an issue with our old aluminum/copper wiring connections. He found the issue, fixed it, and was very up front about any costs. I will absolutely call Captain Electric and ask for Tim the next time I need help with my electrical.

Aluminum wiring can be dangerous if not handled correctly. Proper connectors and compounds are used to make sure things are safe. Thank you for the review, and Tim will be happy to help you next time you call.
