13 potlights, 3 dimmers, new light for future chandelier

I would never choose another electrician. This is the second time using Charles, and he continues to make our design dreams come to light. He didnt leavevholes in our ceiling, which impressed us.

Basement Renovation

I couldn’t have hired a better electrician. Charles and Joey were professional, efficient, friendly, and affordable.

I recommend them to everyone and will always work with them from now on.

Great experience.

Upgrade from 100 to 200 amps

Quick and Professional. Charles was supposed to come in on a Saturday but he was around the area the day before and chose to come over and check the problem. He set foot in the door, checked the issue and called it "we could do it now". He gave us our options, I chose one, and he got to work. I assumed that these upgrades took some time—like a day or two. I was just surprised to see the Ottawa Hydro guys outside informing us that they will be cutting the power—so Charles and Dave could work on the electrical panel. They got to work with their PPE on and got the job done without haste. Gentlemen who get the job done! Many Thanks!

Hi Joel, thank you very much for this nice review.
We had to address the problem right away as an emergency because it could have become a fire hazard.
After a few phone calls with Hydro, the inspector of the Electrical Safety Authorities and my supplier we where able to get the work done right away.
I want to thank you for your patience as you were out of power for approximately 5 hours.
You and Mary-Ann were terrific to work for, you were also very nice by asking us if we needed anything to drink.
I hope I will have the chance to help you again if you ever consider any electrical projects in the future.
Many thanks!

Upgrade to a 200 amp service

Charles came highly recommended by a neighbour. I appreciated that Charles responded promptly to my request for an estimate and thoroughly explained my options and costs. He and his son worked in a calm, quiet and professional manner and their work shows a high level of attention to detail. I am very pleased with the results and would recommend Charles to anyone with high expectations.

Gold standard for customer service excellence

Charles and his son performed an extensive list of work for us to our complete satisfaction on time and on budget. We were impressed with his approach and expertise. He was patient when listening to our needs and offered valuable, practical solutions. The work areas were kept clean and orderly and at all times he was considerate of our home and schedule. It’s great to find a highly competent professional, but it’s bonus when you find one that has exceptional ethics and an outstanding personable manner. Charles and his son are gold standard for customer service excellence.

Basement

Charles and his team provided us expert advice in all aspects of electrical to finishing a basement that included, location and number of lights, pugs and switches. His team were professional and respectful at all times. They cleaned up every day and ensured not to damage any of my personal property. For example, they took their shoes off when going up/down my stairs to the basement that was carpeted (not all contractors did so). They were very knowledgeable and finished their work in a timely manner. I HIGHLY recommend them for any electrical jobs you have.

Excellent Service

Had previously had Charles install 5 ceiling fans, and was extremely pleased with his work.

Needed a new 120V 20A outlet installed for an infrared sauna. Charles came by, answered all my questions (even the technical electrical ones that were more for my own knowledge) and gave an extremely fair quote. He also advised of any possible issues, as well as rough estimates on the costs if required.

The install was fast and extremely professional. I also had a few small odd jobs (changing a few outlets and switches for Smart Home Switches), which he did expertly.

I will be upgrading my electrical panel in a few years, and Charles was happy to walk me through the process, what is required, and cost estimates at current rates.

He is very responsive to emails and phone calls, and was always professional and courteous. I would recommend Charles for any and all electrical work, and am very satisfied.

Replacement of electric panel and addition of ceiling fixture

Charles and his son Joey are an amazing team. They are courteous, professional, efficient and torough. Charles had planned the work with Hydro and helped me with the process. The electric panel was replaced according to schedule and the work on the ceiling fixture was remarkable. We highly recommend them.
Merci beaucoup Charles et Joey pour votre très beau travail votre professionnalisme, votre gentillesse et le service en français très apprécié. Au plaisir de vous engager de nouveau.
