electrical upgrades at my woodshop, new wiring in my home

I originally hired Arauco to add extra lighting and hard wire our new table saw in my woodshop. He stayed on budget and on schedule and was a pleasure to work with. He encountered problems and took the time to explain what needed to be done to meet code and meet our needs.

After that, I built a detached studio in my backyard and hired Arauco to add all the electrical. He again did a wonderful job, made smart suggestions about lighting and placement of outlets, stayed on budget and schedule.

He is one a dying breed of contractors - an older and honourable man who is trustworthy and proud of his work.

First Review


Replacing fuse box with breaker panel. Running new wire for one outlet.

Arauco installed the breaker panel upside down and loaded all the breakers on one side of the box instead of on both sides. Paid $120 extra for new wire to be run to an outlet and later found out he only put new wire at the outlet so that it could go to a different breaker but used the old ungrounded line going to the panel instead of a new one. Instead of pulling the wire properly through the joists in the basement, he left a long loop of wire hanging from the ceiling. Have since hired a new electrician to finish the job who has confirmed that Arauco's work was not up to code. I arrived home one night with half of my house with no power and no note from him to explain. He arrived angry when I called him to restore power to my home and began to pack up his tools, although the job was not done, and insisted I pay his invoice in full. I guess he thought I wouldn't figure out that the job wasn't done so he would get me to pay and then he'd just leave. Later I learned that when he reconnected an outlet so that it would work again, he didn't ground it. To me, that just seems like a standard thing to do for the safety of the customer and ensuring your work is up to code.
