Light install

Called Big City Electric to get some lighst installed in my bathroom reno. Paul showed up promptly and gave me some ideas as to how to proceed. I went with potlights which was installed by Paul quickly and professionally under budget. No hesitation to call Big City Electric again for any future electrical work I may need. Great service!

Electrical Job

I called and explained the electrical problem I had, Paul gave me a quote and when he arrived explained that his work might damage the ceiling and do I still want to have it done. I told him to go ahead, he left no damage, did a great job and was under budget. I wouldn't hesitate to use his services again. Thank you

Lack of power to electrical outlet

We have a window air conditioner plugged into an internal outlet which if fed from a power line that runs outside of the building. I called Big City Electric (as well as several other contractors) and Paul was prompt and the first to respond. He showed up on time and already had an idea of the problem and solution before he arrived and wasted no time. Paul diagnosed the problem upon arrival and had it resolved quickly. I would absolutely use Paul again--very ethical and of the highest moral integrity (which is not common amongst independent contractors!!).

Major building reno

Our family did a major reno on our apartment building and we retained Pauls services.He took on the job of rewiring the entire building as it was a major job.It was a pleasure to have his services rendered. He was always on top of everything and the knowledge he brings made the job stay on track.The one thing I like about him is he is always on time and he always calls you to discuss work and keeps you in the loop.I am currently building a new home and after dealing with his company its a easy decision.Thanks Paul for everything.Jeff and Ana.

Need Advice for a Water Leaking Fixture

Our ceiling had a leak cause by missing shingles and water started leaking thru a light fixture Concern about this danger I just called to ask his advice and he gave me a the method to test the breakers to stop any issues from occurring. He said it would cost too much for him to come up and do the same thing. So I did it on my own and it worked well.

This type of customer service is missing in many trades and if I need their services in future would recommend him without question

2 jobs - changing a 220v to 110v, plus installing a new outdoor electrical outlet

Paul answered our request right away, gave us a fair price, and arrived at our house at the arranged time.
We needed a new outdoor outlet and we needed the 220v line to our stove changed to 110v because we were changing to a gas stove.
Paul was friendly, easy to talk to, yet professional in his work. He explained the details of the work to be done as it progressed.
He discussed options with us including where to drill to the outside.
In the end, we are very happy with the 110v stove outlet and with our new outdoor outlet!

Breaker on Panel

I found Paul at Big City Electric on Homestars and was impressed with the reviews. He was very prompt, courteous and professional during all email inquiries, appointment scheduling and completion of work. He explained and diagnosed the issues which I greatly appreciated. I certainly will contact Paul in the future when I have any other electrical problems. Thank you Paul!
