10 Pot light installation, hid wires behind TV and relocated plugs and light boxes

Larry made done great suggestions after our first meeting on the site. He completed the job within 1 day and cleaned the workspace very nicely after the job was completed. The end result is beautiful. Larry was very friendly, professional, and easy to work with. I recommend him to anyone looking for these services.

Knob & tube removal, panel upgrade, service relocation, Cat 6

Major electrical work is not something you want to put in the hands of just anyone, although it might feel that way when you are meeting with various companies in hopes of finding that right combination of competence, customer service, and competitive pricing. HC Electrical gets top grades across the board! Our job wasn't easy and we were doing more than just knob & tube removal. We needed to relocate our service line to make way for a future addition to the house, we also wanted to upgrade to a 200 amp service, and run Cat 6 cable through the entire house.

Larry knew his stuff and he was never daunted, whatever the situation. Our home is older and had been through renovations by previous owners and that meant a number of surprises, but Larry was able to identify and deal with those problems.

Overall, I was really impressed with his efficiency and his knowledge. Beyond that, I always felt that he was being straight with us and that sense of trust is invaluable when you embark on such an extensive (and expensive) job. Yes, this type of work doesn't come cheap, but after having received quotes from other companies, we were convinced that HC Electrical was competitively priced.

Even after his job was completed, he still returned my calls when I had questions regarding a subsequent stage of our renovations that involved some electrical work. Larry even sent one of his guys to have a look at the work our general contractor did when we expressed some concerns about it and he was able to identify a problem and fix it on the spot for us.

From now on, when we need electrical work done, we will be calling HC Electrical!

Any advice to offer fellow homeowners facing a similar project?
Keep an eye on things and if you see that a crew member is not being as careful as you would like with either the work or your home, mention it to Larry and he will not ignore your concerns.

Knib and Tube Removal and Service Upgrade

I give HC Electrical Services my highest recommendation for their professionalism, high quality work and timely service. This fall we purchased a 100 year old home converted to a triplex. We bought knowing the house had knob and tube wiring, and had to have it all removed for insurance purposes within one month of possession. After meeting with 8 different electricians, Larry was clearly the most professional and the most reliable. Larry provided a detailed quote outlining exactly what work would be done – his price was competitive and it was a pleasure to interact with him. We had two units full of knob and tube entirely re-wired, and serviced the aluminum wiring in the third unit. Larry upgraded our service from 100 to 200 amps, and also put in sub-panels for each of our three units. They also replaced our electric baseboard heaters in the basement apartment and addition, and ran a 240v line for a dryer. Larry and his crew were 100% reliable and professional – they showed up on time every single day, and put in extra hours to do some pot lights for us (which was not in our original request). They started on the exact date we booked them, and finished the job exactly when predicted. And they did the work with minimal damage to our 100 year old plaster walls. The price included getting an ESA inspection and certificates for our home, exactly what insurance companies want to see. Call HC, you won’t regret it!

Service upgrade and entire house re-wiring (new construction and existing)

Larry and his crew wired our entire ground floor renovation, upgraded our service and re-wired some very dangerous second floor wiring that was clearly done improperly (everything was on one 240V circuit), all with a very minimal impact to the finished walls and ceilings. The process was quick professional and friendly and the cost was very reasonable. I was really pleased with the work performed and the recommendations on lighting and outlet layouts during the process. I will definitely use HC Electrical in the future for any small to large projects.

Removal of Knob-and-Tube

I have a very old home in Toronto and the knob-and-tube needed to be removed with updated wiring to 200 amps. Larry and his team did a fantastic job. I was very pleased with the care, time and detail they took in re-wiring the home. Larry and his team made very few holes (and small ones too) to fish the wire, so as to preserve the gumwood and character of the home. They finished on-time and even came a week later to install light fixtures for me at no cost (which he was not obligated to do so). Thank you Larry! He will not rush a job or take shortcuts and the quality of their workmanship shows. His prices are very reasonable, in fact of all my quotations, he was on the low end. I would highly recommend HC Electrical for all your electrical work.

Removed Knob and Tube

We bought an older home after deciding to downsize once our kids left the nest, that was 2 years ago. We finally decided to do some updates in the house and were shocked to find that there was still knob and tube wires in the house. We turned to homestars after a friend has suggested we search there for an electrician. We called a few companies, had the electricians come in and scope the work. We ended up choosing HC electrical for a few reasons. Their quotes were detailed and covered all the work that the job entailed, we asked questions and he gave answers and explained some more. We found the crew of HC Electrical to be very professional and knowledgeable. I recommend these guys based on the good workmanship and excellent service.

Knob and Tube Removal and Potlight Installation

Larry and his team were incredibly professional and efficient upgrading our entire house from the old knob and tube wiring. On time everyday, and very careful to care for our 100 year old plaster walls. He also installed LED potlights for us and they look great. Highly recommend his services.

Separate Line and Baseboard heater

After the freezing the weather we experienced last week my wife and I decided that it was absolutely time to do something about a few colder rooms in the house. Initially we were only planning on installing heated floors but we just did not have the time or budget for it. After contacting a few electricians on homestars, I was fortunate enough to get hold of Larry. Although it was a very short notice I was able to get a booking with him in the same week. We installed the heaters in the laundry room, basement and our the kids rooms. The work was completed without a hitch the same day. We are now sitting cozy and warm all thanks to great team work at HC Electrical Services.

Exceptional customer service

I was pleased to see Larry and Ken show up at my house at 8am this morning, on time and punctual. I did a quick walk through with Larry and explained that the 3 way switch in the hallway was acting up. He did the troubleshooting and repaired the 3way switch. He also changed a faulty breaker in the panel - it was a 15 amp breaker. All of this work in less then 2 hours.

New power line into house

Called Larry on a recommendation of a friend and I'm glad I did. He diagnosed the problem very quickly and assisted me in dealing with Toronto Hydro, which in the end, was my responsibility anyway. I was not happy I had to replace the power line and meter base but I'm glad I called Larry. A very nice and professional guy and he does great work at competitive rates.
