Bertrand Electric
In all honesty, this is a family friend. He has done work for my family and has done free work for our Congregation. I can say with 100% accuracy that this is a good and honest company and the owner is trustworthy and knowledgeable. You will find no better person.

Horrible company. I have a home wired by them and I'm worried that it's going to burn down. The owner Glenn is more concerned about making a cheap buck than anything else. Highly recommend using any electrical company other than landmark. I'm considering lawsuits.

Hired them to drill a hole through the brick on my house to run a cable. This is the end result. Damaged property, no compensation, and no solution to fix my home. Do not use them.

Great service! They replaced a couple outlets and a ceiling fan in my home. They made sure everything worked properly of course but also made sure it looked good and lined up.

Unprofessional... poor service... does not consider his customer's time/schedule, and he even argued with me on the phone. Because it was through my home warranty company, the bum will probably still get paid for not even touching a thing... zero work completed will be paid in full.Stay away! -- far away -- from John Martinez, Master Electrician.

This is the second time in six months we've needed electrical work and used Landmark Electric. Both times the work has been done expertly, quickly, courteously and at a fair price.

Pokloff Electric
I highly recommend Pokloff Electric. James went above and beyond to take care of my business. He is professional and trustworthy. I was very impressed that he was willing to work with my budget and completed all the work quickly. James was easily accessible and delivered quality work. If you're looking for an electrician, call Pokloff Electric you will be in good hands!!

Front office is polite, and the buck stops there... There is clear miscommunications amongst each other. What seemed like a simple fix has now taken three weeks of phone tag. I do not recommend them go somewhere else.
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.
