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.

Ceiling fan installation - Perfect!

Thank you HomeStars for this customer review service which guided me to hiring Charles to install 3 ceiling fans in my home which were installed on March 5th. I made virtually all arrangements with Charles via email as I was out of town at the time I made the decision to have the work done. He responded promptly and provided detailed advice and suggestions. There were no ceiling light fixtures in any of the 3 bedrooms so Charles dealt with the extra electrical work for that. I have only positive things to say about his level of professionalism, pride of workmanship and the quality of his work (an inspection is arranged for tomorrow). I would hire Charles again in a heartbeat. Thanks Charles!

Great Service!

My wife and I have relocated from the Maritimes. We bought an older home that needed the electric panel replaced and a few circuits upgraded. Not knowing anyone local I searched Kijiji and was lucky enough to come across Charles an C. Leclair Electric. Super fast response, great workmanship and a fair price as per the quote. I would recommend C. Leclair to anyone and have kept his number as I am certain to require his services again and will not hesitate.

Wow, that was quick Wayne!
Thank you for posting this great review. Even being miles apart we were able to communicate quickly and in a very easy way to get the job done.
It was a pleasure for me to install the new panel for you in your new home and hopefully we will get the chance to meet one day.
Your good communication made it easy for me, from providing you the quote to get the work and ESA inspection completed.
Thank you again and I hope your will be enjoying Ottawa.

Change pannel and upgrading from 100 to 200 amp service.

Contacted Charles from Kijiji and Homestars reviews. He was quick to respond and answered all my questions right away. He guided us through dealing with Hydro One and getting a site survey for the job (home owners are the only ones that can do this) once the survey came back he was ready to go. He organized the shut off with Hydro One, pulled the required permits, and completed the job quickly. He and his son we're happy to answer any and all of my questions. Both were extremely polite and respectful. It was nice to see the pride they took in their work and I will definitely be in touch with them if I require any additional work. Highly recommend! You won't be disappointed........

True professional

Charles upgraded electric panel in my house.

I got an estimate and all explanations right next day after I contacted him. All these bureaucratic relations between electrician, Electric Safety and Hydro Ottawa were a mystery to me. Charles patiently explained everything.

He is very responsive. I called and sent messages several times and response time always was within 10 minutes.

Just in case if something is wrong with conduit Charles gave me an estimate for a second solution. So I knew beforehand that price may change. I like it since it did not come up as a surprise on a service day.

I checked couple other contractors and price was much higher compare to Charles offer. This was the first time when I did not feel like I am being robbed. :)

Panel upgrade went smoothly and was followed by careful house inspection. All electric consumers were checked.

I would definitely recommend C. Leclair Electric.

Thank you Charles!

Thank you very much for the amazing review Anton.
So nice from you to write one without me asking.

I'm glad we could do the work as planned and not have to go with plan B which would have cost quite a bit more but we did not know if we could reused 60 feet of the existing underground conduit. I'm very happy we could.

Everything went very well, even better than I thought.

I'm flattered by your nice review and at the end I have another very satisfied customer and that is really important to me.

Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have other projects in the futur, It will be my pleasure to help.

Thanks again Anton.

Installation of ceiling outlet and fixtures

Charles installed multiple ceiling outlets and fixtures. He also put in pot lights. He worked efficiently with his assistant, Joey. The finished product looks great and works well! Both were polite and didn't hesitate to answer our questions. I would recommend them to any new customer.

Phenomenal work ethics and quality of work quality

The main electrical panel was faulty and stopped working. Charles was on site within a few hours only. By the next day he completed the installation of a new panel and breakers. 11/10 work quality. This is for a rental property in Orleans and I live in Montreal but we had no problem coordinating everything over the phone. My tenants and I could not be more satisfied. I cannot recommend him enough. EXTREMELY PROFESSIONAL AND HIGH QUALITY WORK! Thank you Charles, I struck gold by finding you online and will make sure to call you for future electrical work.
