Wish I could put NEGATIVE stars!I’m currently trying to get my heating unit replaced. They were SUPPOSED to be in charge of the process with my home warranty. They have disappeared off the face of the earth! It’s been over 2 weeks! We are freezing.... middle of November and still no heat! These guys are horrible! They take your money and run!

We hired Mark to do floor and ceiling work during a remodel, and while he talked a big game, he disappointed on every single level, especially with just showing up and eventually just disappearing.The only reason we gave him two stars is for his helper, Joel, who ended up doing 90% of the work that did get done. He would stay late into the night, wouldn't even take lunch breaks, and took the time to patiently explain everything to us step by step as well as repeatedly apologizing for his employer's shortcomings. We actually ended up hiring Joel to finish the work after Mark just disappeared, and while he took a little longer than expected, we couldn't be happier with how it turned out.

Truitt Electric
Best customer service, professionalism, and most importantly PRICING around. From the very first call to Charlotte to the gentlemen Jason and Taylor, we couldn't have experienced better service. They came within 24 hours of my first call and were actually ready to do the job when they came to give the quote. I had gotten one quote above $1,200 and simply felt it was ridiculous. Truitt' quote was WAY less than that and I felt it was too good to be true. I wasn't confident they would do the amount of work up to my standard or up to industry standards, so I wanted to get one more quote before deciding on someone to do the job. My last quote was even higher than the first!!I decided to go with Truitt even with the questions I had, and I am so glad I did!!! I can honestly say I have not thought twice since having them the job(s) I needed and would not hesitate to call them again and/ or refer their company to anyone looking for a truly professional company. USE TRUITT ELECTRIC, YOU WILL NOT REGRET IT!!

Took a job and signed a contract for few weeks worth of work walked out/thrown out of job at week 23. Failed to show most weeks to do work, always had reasons. The work that was done needs to be redone by a qualified contractor. Railing for stairs is lose and baluster are falling off (daughter was holding it when it came off), electrical was cut and left hanging in rooms, drywall is a mess, tape is falling off the walls, all painting needs to be redone this is just the tip of the issues. We are significantly over the time line and budget and need to brought in someone else to finish. BEWARE you are dealing with someone that talks a good game and seems nice but can not complete a job to any level of quality

I had a far less satisfying experience with Randy Yates. He was hired to rehab rental property because he was cheap. The work he actually completed reflected that price, but he disappeared before the job was complete, would not return calls or refund my deposit.

Nice guys but service was a bit to be desired. They were assigned thru my home warranty company and after 3 attempts the unit was finally fixed. The first attempt was the wrong blower motor was ordered. The second was a No-Show on their part and them Final at the third attempt it was fixed and this spanned over 10 days without A/C. You will have to do a lot of leg work with them and Follow ups. There is very little communication unless you initiate it. There are better HVAC companies keep looking.

When remodeling homes, I look for unique and well priced items. HIS Warehouse helped with everything from cabinets to lighting to flooring. Couldn't ask for a better place to find great deals on remodeling needs!

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.
