Electrical Wiring Renovation

We were very satisfied with Al's work at our home. His experience with older homes was obvious and he made great recommendations for additions and convenience. We would highly recommend Brighthouse Electric for electrical services.

Electrical redesign and installation

Albin was initially referred by my local Electric Product store, he is a very knowledge and professional Electrician we ever met. He Is very innovative under adverse conditions, and always seeks most cost efficient solutions for us and still get the job done. He also has his own set of routine in order to accomplish a job in most time-efficient way, he has a very well organized van carrying all job necessaries, in order to save client's time by not running around to get them by the time it was needed. with his experiences and attitude, He can handle both big and small electric projects and assignments, because he is focusing on his job quality and customer satisfactions only. We are very happy to hire him and will hire him again in future if needed.

Electrical upgrades

I saw Albin’s truck parked near our place and because it looked so cool I took a photo of it. Also because I knew we would need electrical work in the near future. When I called Albin with the details of our pretty small job he was happy to do it and was able to come by the following week at a time that suited everyone.
He arrived right on time, the job took exactly what he said it would, and the bill was exactly what he quoted.
We are very pleased with Albin’s work and cheerfully recommend Brighthouse Electric Company.

Installation of Electric Cooktop and down- draft

We had to upgrade wiring to install a new cook-top that we had purchased for our kitchen island. Al is an excellent electrician and he also is accomplished at doing duct work and cabinetry. This facilitated completion of our kitchen renovation as he was able to do all of the jobs needed to be done. I highly recommend Al for your renovation projects.

Lighting and Rewiring

Al was doing some work at our neighbours and came over and introduced himself as he had done the wiring on our house when it was originally built 23 years ago. The home inspector we used when we bought our house said it was the best built house he had ever seen so I knew form that that Al was a star. I had a couple of small jobs that we had been putting off because we could not find someone we trusted. Al gladly took them on, did a swift and fantastic job. I would not hesitate to recommend him. Thanks Al!!

Electrical work

We have an old house, built around 1912, which has been renovated by many people over the years. Not everyone who worked on the house was a competent electrician. Al has done excellent work over the last 15 years, fixing things that were done badly (and in many cases unsafely) in the first place, as well as making changes that we wanted, such as adding extra lines for computers or installing new light fixtures. I recommend him to any friends who need a trustworthy, competent electrician to work on their house.

[I put the cost as $0 as we've asked Al to do so many jobs over the years. The cost varies with the job, of course!]

Upgrade wiring from high risk to low risk in a >100 year old home.

We have a 120 year old house. Most of the original lathe and plaster walls are still intact and we want to keep it that way. Naturally we were a bit nervous about the prospect of having an electrician cut holes in our walls. After Albin’s first day on the job it became clear that he was the right person. This kind of work is his specialty.

Albin is very knowledgeable, showed up when he said he would, worked hard, did what he said he would, paid attention to the details, did beautiful work, and finished on schedule and slightly below his estimate. He is a highly skilled professional and we enjoyed having in our home.

UPDATE June 2017:
Albin also does small jobs! He fit us in to install a hard wired wall lamp for us. Thanks, Albin! Attached, a photo of him showing off his deluxe new kneepads and his awesome truck.
