Another great job.

Once again Ali came through. He replaced my panel and fished wire down four floors of an old Victorian home in order to install ductless air conditioning. And it wasnt easy!

Washing machine circuit

We needed a dedicated circuit wired in for a new washing machine. Ali was available in short notice and did a great job to get the circuit set up without having to do a lot of wall cuts in our older house. We have hired Ali before and would do so again.

Wall Outlets and Switch Updates

I am very happy with the services that Ali provided for my family’s home. We had serval wall outlets that had burnt out, and we could not replace the outlets on our own. Ali came over promptly after I called him. I did not do a good job of explaining the issue, but Ali was patient and repaired 4 outlets and 2 switches.

Assorted small electrical jobs handled with care and professionalism

Ali from Direct Electric was very easy to deal with and to set up a date for the work. He showed up on time and was great about letting us know he was on his way, which was very reassuring.
He wired in a bath fan in a tricky location, quickly replaced a ceiling light fixture, and moved and installed several switches for us. All the work was handled very professionally and with care, and explained thoroughly.
Direct Electric did great work and was great to deal with.

1-fix outdoor electrical socket 2- install new bathroom fan 3- fix electrical switch in bathroom, repairing defective wiring 4-install new bathroom potlight

Ali came promptly -2 days aftrer I contacted him. We had gotten a recommendation for Ali from two of our neighbours. He got down to business right away. He was an absolute pleasure to deal with, told us exactly what he was doing and why, and tidied up after the work was done. He identified a significant problem with the wiring in our bathroom and fixed it. We felt his fee was entirely appropriate f or the time involved and the work done. I will be calling him again.
I highly recommend this company. The level of professionalism displayed by the owner was impressive.

Emergency service call

I called Ali for a problem I had in my kitchen, my range hood fan an one outlet stopped working after I connected the microwave and the fan at the same time. He came the next day.
He found the problem (which was an incorrect installation done by previous kitchen renovation) and was able to find a solution until I can do a whole kitchen renovation and rewiring.
Ali was very friendly, responsible, respectful and you can tell he is an expert in the matter. His rate is fair.
I will call him for any future electric work I totally trust him and recommend his work.

Regards,
Fanny D.
