Bringing wiring in house up to code

I was impressed from the begining with this company. The electrician was punctual, courteous,professional, knowledgeable and approachable. He was able to design a solution that fit our timeline, budget and safety needs. Our home was kept neat and tidy throughout the job and I felt well informed of progress. The finished job is wonderful. I would definitely recommend WireChief.

Wiring and electrical advice

I needed a 220v outlet for a welder in my workshop and they came to the rescue. It was a pretty small job but I think they made time to fit it in between some bigger jobs already on the go. Super friendly, down to earth, patient and helpful with my questions. Easy to get a hold of and quick to come by. I have no reservations recommending them.

restaurant equipment hook-up

WireChief did a great job hooking up various pieces of restaurant equipment for our pizza shop. The quote they gave us was accurate. They worked quickly and efficiently in completing the project. Friendly and knowledgeable electricians made working with them a pleasure.

Rewired a bathroom light

Octavio came and rewired a bathroom light in our master suite. We phoned late Saturday and he was there first thing Monday morning. He was polite, efficient and explained the cost and procedure to us before he started the job. I would absolutely phone him first whenever we need any electrical work done and would strongly recommend him to anyone.

installing ceiling fan with scaffolding (16 ft ceilings)

Octavio and his assistant were punctual, personable, used drop cloths on the floor, tested the installation and cleaned up afterwards. A relief to have the installation done before any real heat arrives this summer.

Safety Inspection on Knob & Tube Wiring

My home insurance company required a safety inspection on knob & tube wiring in my home before they would renew the policy. I had the same insurance policy for more than 30 years, had done a major house addition & renovation in 1984 (which was inspected by the city electrical inspector at the time) and there were no previous problems but the insurance company decided to do a detailed survey about the construction of my home for some reason. I told them there was still some K&T wiring left that we could not replace in 1984 without tearing several walls apart and I was given 30 days to submit a report by a licensed electrical contractor. I was leaving for a 3 week vacation in a few days so I needed something done in a hurry. I read the Homestars reviews on electrician, found that Octavio had done a similar report for a customer who gave him a good recommendation so I e-mailed him on a Saturday (not a working day for him), explained the problem and the timeline, and he replied within two hours to tell me he could fit in an inspection visit on Monday. He showed up right on time, knew exactly what was needed, did a thorough job of looking at all parts of the K&T wiring and completed the report immediately before he left. By 11AM Monday I emailed his report to the insurance company and started packing my suitcase. The price was fair, the work was excellent, and I really appreciated the timely response by Octavio. For all those reasons I am pleased recommend him to anyone who needs the same type of inspection done.

inspection of knob and tube wiring for fire insurance

After 26 years of insuring with the same company with no complications, I was informed because of the age of my house, an electical inspection was reqired to rate risk factors. Thie had never happened before. A "specialist" was recommended-at $370, almost the cost of the policy!I contacted Octavio's company instead. He is personable, prompt, efficient and highly professional.After his inspection and report which cost considerably less than the other compant, he went through what he had found, step by step, and even showed me pictures he had taken along the way. He even pointed out visually errors another electrician had made on an earlier and costly job. I wish I had discovered him earlier and would recommend his services unconditionally.
