Chris was very professional, friendly, and most of all confident and reassuring in his job replacing a sensor light for the back yard. A real classy man you can trust. Thanks again Chris!!

I hired Colz Electic in October 2016 to bury the overhead wires (from the service pole to my house) and wire a new garage that was being built in my backyard. The garage was completed mostly smoothly however when it was discovered that he buried only 1 of the 4 overhead lines, trying to get the remaining lines buried became a nightmare. When the error was discovered (Nov 2016) Chris assured me he would ‘make it right’ and get the remaining lines buried. However, by then the ground was frozen and he asked if it was ok to come back in the spring (April 2017) to complete the work. When it came time to actually follow through with his commitment it became a fight.

Chris mentioned he would be out of pocket for costs as he hadn’t quoted all of the lines in his estimate. I was repeatedly referred back to our agreement which simply stated “bury overhead cables”. Although neither Chris nor I could identify a situation where a person would tear up an entire backyard to bury only one of four overhead lines, I decided to accept some responsibility for the ambiguity in the contract and take it as a lesson learned (don’t assume any logic will be applied) and agreed to pay for the additional materials. In the end, I even re-dug the entire trench in an effort to make it easy for him to complete the job as he had told me the trenching was a time consuming and generally unpleasant task. I can confirm that this is true, it’s terribly unpleasant.

Scheduling with Chris was consistently frustrating and it took multiple emails/calls/visits over a span of 4 weeks to coordinate. In our final conversation trying to schedule the remaining work, Chris was uncomfortably aggressive and untruthful (although he later apologized for this). Ultimately, the work was not completed until May 2017 when I hired another electrician to do it.

In short, I found when things went well Chris was fine. Unfortunately if there is any chance of a problem arising, he is not pleasant or effective to deal with. Would not recommend and certainly would never hire again.

Highly recommend!! These guys literally saved our home from a major electrical fire due to a botch job by a previous electrician.

Before finding Colz Electric we had a terrible experience with another electrician who confirmed to our home insurance company that the aluminum wiring in our soon-to-be home was all safe. Not only that, he showed up late and smoked in our drive way both before and after his "supposed" inspection. Shortly after moving in we began having multiple shorts in our home (including our fridge and in our baby's room) -- thinking nothing of it, we assumed it was a cork of having an older home.

We decided to have some additional lights installed and decided to try Colz Electric based on positive reviews (we were definitely not calling back the other guy!). Chris and his partners showed up when promised, were clean cut and very professional. While doing the other work they discovered major electrical problems in our home, which were at the root of the shorts we were experiencing. The aluminum wiring had been incorrectly tampered with and in some areas were beginning to cause damage -- we were very close to having a fire.

Chris and his team made our home a priority to ensure our home & family were safe. We've since had them back to do other work as well, and would most definitely recommend to anyone looking for a reputable electrician.

What a great referral we got from Hearth and Home to find Chris and Derek at Colz ready and willing to give an estimate and get the job done in a matter of weeks. They cared about doing the job well and with safety paramount. Both were easy to communicate with and knew the ins and outs of what was required. The job was done with precision and when we needed another tradesperson of good standard for another job he directed us to another great company. So fantastic to work with Colz and get work done without any hidden costs and with such great efficiency and prowess at even the most complicated tasks. They go the extra mile. Thanks from Lorisa
