Outlets

Charles installed 2 plugs on dedicated fuses in our house. He explained what needed to be done in terms that I could understand. He and his assistant were polite and cleaned up after the work was done.

Charles charged me the price he quoted. I would not hesitate to recommend Charles, and will be keeping his contact information for any future projects.

Kitchen and Bathroom Renovation

Charles and his son came and did all of the electrical work for my kitchen and bathroom renovation (pot lights, moved outlets, created new outlets, installed the electrical for my stove, dishwasher, and bathroom fan). They were very professional, cleaned up every day when they were finished, and completed their work on time. I would definitely use them again.

Pot Lights - Very Satisfied

We had Charles install some pot lights and dimmers in our basement last week and are very satisfied with the work that he completed with his son. We found them both to be very personable, honest, competent, professional and efficient.

All work was done with care and up to code. Charles even completed some additional work at no charge and followed up very quickly with confirmation of ESA sign off.

We would not hesitate to recommend Charles and we will definitely be calling him back when we need further electrical work.

EXCELLENT SERVICE

We hired Charles to rewire our kitchen, install ceiling lights in our bedrooms, and wire in two bathroom fans. Right from the first assessment of our project, it was obvious that his level of knowledge and experience was well above other electricians that we had spoken with. He explained the potential problems (the need to expand the electrical panel) and recommended solutions that not only would save us trouble in the future (surge protection on the house), but didn't break the bank. Some of the points that we loved about him are: 1. He provided a detailed estimate and then stuck to it, even when the work ended up being a little more complicated than originally expected; 2. His work ethic was phenomenal, as was that of his son who helped with the job; 3. He looked after the house like it was his own, cleaning up after himself and limiting the damage that had to be to pull the wiring; and 4. He was able to give good advice on the types of lights to put in and where to put them; and he been fantastic in terms of providing follow-up service in terms of providing follow-up advice and assistance in troubleshooting a dimmer switch that didn't work once the under-counter lighting was installed.
We were thrilled with the final results of Charles, work!. We would not hesitate to recommend him to friends and family looking for an electrician and would hire him again in a heartbeat if needed! Thanks for everything Charles!!

Speedy service, great quality

C Leclair Electrical was recommended to us from a friend who had recently used their service. I called for a rush service and the work was completed the next day. Friendly, professional and good local company.
Very highly recommended.

Copper Pig Tails

My condo's electrical wiring was a mess, some copper wiring but mostly aluminium wiring. C Leclair Electric retrofitted my whole condo with copper pig tails. First he came and did a walk through the condo. He explained in clear detail all the work that was required as well as the following steps. As agreed upon he sent me a quote the following day.

On the day of, they showed up on time. The guys were fast and efficient. They even cleaned up after themselves once they were done, passing a broom where they had worked. They did the work as described in the quote, and they did it on time. Would definitely recommend to anyone looking for an electrician.
