Change from fuses to breaker panel

From our first meeting with Mark, we knew we had the right man for the job. His credentials are impeccable.
The work (including additional wiring) was done in a timely and very professional manner.
We were happy to have the job done and are confident it was done well.

Main Floor Kitchen, Bath & Entry with new Panel

Mark came over and provided sound advice on the 'minimum' cost and his recommendations for the best overall value over the long term. He correctly identified a shortage circuits with enough amps throughout and provided a plan to get from the panel to the new kitchen by opening the (finished) basement ceiling. On the day of the work, I suggested cutting the upstairs living room floor instead, since I was going to replace it later anyways: he not only had the flexibility to do it but got it done in record time, arranged all inspections, progressed while I was on vacation and ended-up replacing some additional switches and upgrading the bathroom electrical (at my suggestion). Now everything works and I can (safely) enjoy the house for decades to come without compromise. Thanks!

Electrical Work

On May 2018 I asked Burton Electric (Mark Burton) for an estimate to install a chandelier in my dinning room, and repair switch in a bedroom.
He came within days of my call and of all the quotes he was not the lowest but in the middle. He was polite, great demeanor. He inspected the electrical system and the chandelier and inspected the switch in the bedroom. Gave me a written quote. After discussing this with Merna (wife). We had a good feeling about Mark. So we asked him to do the job.
He arrived with his apprentice and immediately started work. They did excellent work. When they left the house was clean, no mess. They had cleaned up with great care.
They are professionals in every sense of the word.
Any future electrical work in our home will be done by Burton Electric.
Thank You Mark and Lee
Regards
Merna and Ted Sluman

Replacement of Knob and Tube Wiring, Upgrade to 200 amp service

We were happy to have someone with Marc's expertise and experience to take on such an extensive job for us. He and his crew exhibited great skill, thoroughness, and an attention to detail. I especially appreciated their focus on safe work practices. They arrived on time every day, and made sure to clean up each day before leaving. While work was underway, Mark patiently explained options and found practical solutions to complete the job efficiently. Mark also made some good suggestions for getting the necessary drywall and plaster repair work done once he and his crew had finished the job.

Electrical Service and Repair

We had some flickering lights in our front hallway. Mark and Kyle came within a few days to repair the problem, and also found some issues with our circuit breaker box that they solved and repaired. They patiently explained everything they did, answered all our questions and they will be returning within a week to do more repairs and upgrading that are sorely needed. We were grateful to find such a good, honest and reliable Electric Company!

Replaced an old electrical box outside

Mark Burton did an amazingly great job for me in a timely cost effective way.
He is the voice of experience and I could see he knew exactly what to do and how to succinctly obtain the permit and do the job. I interviewed one other fellow before I met Mark... the guy was going to fumble getting a permit and charge me double what Mark quoted! There are many inexperienced people out there!
Mark Burton was amazing! Thank you!

Replaced one main breaker and a plug

Over charged.
Toronto Hydro came and advised to replace defective main breaker for odd/part power. When called Mark at Burton Electric Inc., he didn't say need to pay service call or different from estimation.

Service call - $50
Trouble shoot and replace breaker - $100
100 amp breaker - $100
A plug - $80
Small job permit - $75

Sorry but I do not have a record of this work. If you would like to contact me directly, we can discuss your concerns and as well as where and when this job took place.
However, if we responded to a Toronto Hydro safety concern that your main breaker was failing, the minimum charge of $150.00 is quite reasonable given that this includes two hours of labour and travel time for two electricians, along with a fully equipped vehicle delivered to your home to make the repair.
The cost of the main breaker feeding your whole house ($100.00 for a two pole 100 amp breaker) is the cost of the part. This is a reasonable price for this type of part.
Unfortunately, Burton Electric Inc has no control over you having to pay for an electrical permit from the Electrical Safety Authority of Ontario (its the law) as well as the provincial and federal taxes.
If we responded, restored power to your home, made it safe, and provided additional work all for $300, you have received very good service at a very good price. We are not part of Toronto Hydro and do not provide our services for free.
This would definitely not warrant scoring us a 0. You could have easily said no to the work, as well as the additional work requested of an addition plug.
Regards,
Mark Burton.
