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.

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.
