Takes jobs and then does not call people back, does not complete the work he said he would. Drops f bombs in front of everyone and anyone. Treats his employees like dogs, his generals like crap and his clients like trash. He is one with the snakes

I hired this company to install 4 ceiling fans, I would not recommend this company. Two guy's showed up, installed the fans, and when I asked them to shorten the chains to the fans, huffs and puffs. They left a mess, left the fan boxes in my garage, I had to go to Lowes to buy remotes because installer couldn't figure out how to install without them. Left a hole in my ceiling and screwed the celing piece back up. Would give this company a -5 but the least rating is a 1

Called in twice and entered a street light L15175 - 7 on Monte Rosa Dr. Carson City, NV as being out over a year ago. Other neighbors have also reported it and nothing has been done. I have reported it again today 12/17/2015 This light is the only illumination near the Park Terrace entrance and when lit is a deterrent to people entering the park at night. The neighbors are not happy about the lack of service.

This company is anything but professional! The owner (Mike) came out with his employee and charged us double for a job that was half done! As the home owner, I dug the hole and prepared the top box, all his staff had to do was lift the new box into place and repair the lines in the box. It was a one electrician’s job with a half an hour basic laborer to help if the initial electrician was not strong enough to lift the boxes into place. I told Mike I could help. As the home owner I am 6’5” at 300lbs; I could have done the manual labor. Instead, Mike the owner, charged me for 2 electricians for 3 hours of work! I can see how it MIGHT have taken one worker 3 hours but 2 paid electricians both at 3 hours, that’s 6 labor hours at full electrician’s rate? Rip OFF! I wont even tell you all the details about the lack of professionalism when I tried to simply ask the owner why he did this, but I will tell you he called me and all his 2012 customers “JEWS” for trying to Rip him off, not to mention the F… bomb he dropped on me! Wow… pick someone else! To think I was actually calling him initially to ask him to do more work… no Mike I will take your advice and Never Call you again!
Tips & Advices
Keep the following tips in mind:
  • Do not operate any electrical equipment while sitting or standing in water.
  • Don't overload extension cords or surge protectors.
  • Put caps on your electrical outlets if you have small children.
  • Call an electrician if you notice your sockets or switches are warm to the touch, discolored or if they make noise.
  • Keep electrical cords away from stoves, ovens and other sources of heat.
  • Do not use an appliance that has a frayed cord.
  • Do not staple extension cords into place or cover them with carpets or furniture.
  • When using extension cords, make sure to unwrap them before plugging them in.
  • Don't overuse extension cords. Have an electrician install extra outlets if you need a power source closer to you.
  • Only use light bulbs with the correct wattage for your lamps and light fixtures.
  • Contact a licensed electrician if you frequently blow fuses, since this can be a sign of an electrical wiring problem.
  • Have an electrician look at your fuse box to ensure you have the right size fuses and circuit breakers. The wrong size fuse or breaker can be a fire hazard.
  • If you have fault circuit interrupters installed in your electrical panel, make sure you test them at least once a month by turning them on and off.
It can cost from $40-$100 an hour depending on the job. This does not include additional costs for parts or trip fees. Make sure to ask in advance what they charge for or if they will provide a free quote.
In order to become a full-fledged professional, a person must undergo an apprenticeship with master and journeyman electricians. An apprentice needs 8,000 hours of practical work before graduating to the journeyman level. If an apprentice reaches journeyman status, he or she can complete most electrical work, but cannot design it until completing more testing along with 2,000 more on-the-job hours.
Yes. While all electricians need a license, not all of them do the same types of jobs.
  • Outside: These types of electricians work outdoors on electrical lines that connect to power plants.
  • Inside: Inside experts typically focus on commercial and industrial buildings that require a lot of power.
  • Residential: Residential electricians work with low-voltage systems and wiring to install fuse boxes and light fixtures.
Watch out for contractors that greatly underbid other electricians. If the price seems too good to be true, it probably is. Also, always remember to get the estimate in writing before settling on a company.
