Electrical Work

I have had Silverback at my house for 3 projects. Install pot lights in the den, repair electrical issues I had and install a security camera. I am very happy and confident with their service. Knowledgeable and very friendly. Will always hire them for any project I have.

prompt professional service. Excellent value!

Installed a tesla wall charger including running a new cable through the garage and setting up the new breaker.
Lowest bid of the three I got. 75% cheaper than the highest.
Highly recommended.

ceiling fan repair

Aaron replaced the electronic parts in our ceiling fan. We were pleased that he was willing to do this small job because other electricians in our area weren't interested. He was friendly, communicated well, and arrived when he said he would. We'll hire him again in the future for electrical repairs.

Great Service and Price

We had them run 2 new lines and put in two new outlets. The work was done efficiently and they cleaned up really well after. Very impressed with the work and quality. Will definitely use again when needed.

Installation of multiple fixtures and dimmer

We had issues with new light fixtures not fitting with the existing junction boxes (due to previous shoddy workmanship).

Aaron at Silverback provided excellent service and economical solutions. Thoroughly pleased with the service and will definitely be using Silverback for any future electrical needs.

Electrical Inspection for House Insurance Renewal

We recently discovered that our old timer home had more knob and tube than we thought. Soon after sharing this information with our insurance broker, we were told our insurance company wanted us to get an electrical inspection to determine the condition of the knob and tube and report the percentage of old wiring in our home.

Since we did not have a regular electrician, we checked HomeStars.com as we had good results for other trades through this website. We sent an email to Silverback Electric based on a 98% rating and Best of 2020 status with several recent positive reviews. Aaron responded to our email within a half hour (even though we had sent it on a Saturday), explaining what he would do to investigate our electrical situation, the cost for the first two hours, the hourly rate if the work took more than two hours and what was needed for a low risk rating for our knob and tube. After a few more emails, we felt Aaron’s up-front information and quick replies made him the right electrician for our inspection.

Aaron was available to do the inspection on the day we wanted it done. He arrived on time and removed his shoes without being asked. He was polite and explained what he saw during the inspection. Within two hours, Aaron determined our remaining old wiring was only 26% of our total wiring and was in excellent condition, making our risk level low. We shared his report with our insurance broker and now we will be able to renew our insurance. Thanks Aaron.

Amp upgrade and special plug install for indoor sauna

Fantastic service, couldn’t been more happy.
New to tow its already a bit of a challenge and then trying to find a company its even more frustrating.
I got lots of promises but it seemed no one had time to come out and get the job done or even give me an update when is someone available.
Within an hour of my email got a response from Aaron which led to arranging an appointment.
Electrician was super punctual, did a great job in a very timely manner and to top it off it was done on Sunday!!
Im very happy with their services and will recommend them to anyone in need of any electrical services.
Great job guys!!

Replacement of motion detection light

We hired Silverback Electric to replace our motion detection light. Aaron responded quickly, with useful details (including cost) about the project. The appointment was scheduled within a week. Aaron was able to pick up the light to install for us, which we really appreciated. He completed the work in approx. 10 minutes and was more than happy to look into another electrical issue, since he was already there.
We'd definitely hire Silverback Electric for future electrical work and highly recommend them.

Data network cable installation, bathroom timer switch installation, smoke/CO detectors replacement, power outlet move

We hired Silverback Electric to do the work enumerated in the title, and I can report that everything was done well and on schedule. I know some of the wiring in our 40-year old house is a bit odd so I was expecting complications, but they either never manifested or these professionals just knew how to handle them. :) They're now who I'll call for any future electrical work.

Move switches & Installed Electrical Socket

I needed several pieces of work because of previous renovation work in the kitchen. I needed three sets of switches combined to two 2 gang switches and moved about four feet. I also needed a wall socket added above counter. Excellent work - fast and efficient. Aaron kept dry wall work I would need to do to minimum and he even called in someone he knew to cut through the tile. Highly recommended - I would use his services again.
