    After a small scheduling snafu, the Shore Break guys arrived promptly and efficiently worked on the several small projects I had around the house. The projects were pretty minor, but the quality of the work was good overall.

    Tony was personable and easy to work with. He did a complete electrical safety inspection. He knows his stuff! Will definitely hire him again.

    Excellent team work and supervision by the owner/manager, who paid attention to all details from start to finish. The team who did the removal of the old lighting fixture and installing of the new one plus dimmer switch were meticulous, accurate, and tidy. The resulting look in our dining room looks great. Shore Break gave us a more expensive quote, but we think we made the right selection based on their expertise, experience and the actual result.

    I needed the 100-amp electrical panel of my 49-year-old house replaced and upgraded to a 200-amp model. Tony and his crew did an excellent job. They were on time, on budget, clean, friendly, and thoroughly professional. I highly recommend Shore Break Electric.

    Fantastic Job and People
    I don't usually give reviews until a job is done but Tony and his crew at Shore Break Electric are solid enough to review early. I initially hired them for a simple breaker issue but after seeing Tony work and finding that our main panel was a mess I decided to hire him to clean it up plus, install 3 additional outlets inside the house. They've done a fantastic job, have been straight forward in all explanations of their work and have consulted with me when they need my input or approval. I also like that they're local and we're supporting our local businesses.

    Tony was suppose to take care of my backyard overhead but got "sick" 3-4 weeks ago and I haven't heard back from him since. He basically abandoned a project that I was really excited for.

    Tony and his team from Shore Break did an absolutely outstanding job diagnosing and repairing a huge, dangerous problem that developed in my house. My original request for help was responded to at lightning speed. Within minutes I had received an email and a phone call from Tony, the owner. When Tony came to my house to give me a free estimate, he diagnosed the problem in just a few minutes, even though it was a unique issue that physically encompassed a large portion of my home. His quick diagnosis came about solely as a result of his experience. I have a feeling any other electrician could have putzed around my house for three hours and still wouldn't have been able to diagnose and repair my issue as expediently as Tony did. Tony literally saved my house from burning down. When he completed the work, it was as if no one was even there. Everything was spotless! I have since referred him to a neighbor and to my condominium association. GREAT JOB, SHORE BREAK! Oh, and two other electricians I previously contacted didn't even want to come over when I told them what my problem was. (A.K.A. the "I ain't touching that with a ten foot pole" routine). Another came out and "fixed" the problem, only to literally have the wiring in my house melt down, arc and die just a few days later. Tony wasn't afraid to come out, put some gloves on, and tackle the problem. You gotta respect that.

    If Mr. Nuzzo handles his job as well as how our phone conversation went, his workmanship will score highly as well. We have yet to identify the problem, set a price, and finally complete the work.

    Tony and his crew installed a new fan and did some electrical work for me in the attic to connect an attic fan yesterday. They were very professional, pleasant to deal with, detail oriented in their work, and charge a very fair price. I would highly recommend them and would absolutely use their service again. Highly recommended!

    Verified Review
    April 12, 2016 Sheila P. Torrance, CA I was panicking after dinner after I found out that all our electrical outlets in the kitchen lost its power. I tried playing with the circuit breakers but that didn't help. I immediately went on line and put out a service quote via Thumbtack. Within a few minutes, I simultaneously got an email and a call from Tony at Shore Break Electric. Tony walked through with me over the phone on what to do and within few minutes I got back my outlets power. Not only that I saved time and money, Tony saved my food in the fridge. Thanks Tony. You will be my future electrician 👍🏼

    Tony took care of my job -- updating our outlets to accomodate a tankless water heater -- with lightning speed, from the quote to the finished work. He was present on the job and knew what he was talking about re: permitting and the job requirements. Follow up was stellar too. I was always able to reach him and get a response right away. I plan to hire Tony again for sure.

    We needed to replace outside wiring to use a new AC unit. Shore Break had a good solution to our problem and their price was competitive. Tony and his team were efficient and organized. As he mentioned when I met him for the bid quote - "we do a complete job, start to finish" - he was right. The wiring and new panel were cleanly installed, the conduit was painted to match the house, and old hardware removed. The job looks great.

    I needed my old, small kitchen recessed lighting replaced (and rather quickly, as one light was literally falling out of the ceiling). Tony provided me with an initial quote based upon my description, was available immediately for an estimate and provided a formal quote/bid within hours. His pricing was very competitive and he was very accommodating to my needs and schedule. The job was done quickly and professionally, and I am extremely pleased with the result. I would highly recommend Shore Break for anyone who needs an electrician.

    Shore Break Electric was fantastic with the remodel of our clubhouse! We went from a coffee shop to a sports bar and the Team from Shore Break ensured that no stone was left unturned and that we got the proper power to the proper areas. The Team from Shore Break CARES about our business and would explain in detail a topic when I had questions or if they saw something in the plans that didn't make sense to them (because the other company that made the plans didn't check a code or what not before putting it on paper), they came to us with questions rather than just doing what wouldn't look good or what wouldn't be technically to code. They also follow up really well and want to make sure we, the customer, are taken care of and are happy with the work! I recommend using them for your projects!
  • Randy H. Jan 28, 2016

Q&A

What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
We have a base rate of 72.00 per hour per man. We also have minimum charge on an emergency call of 2 hours at 98.00 per hour. All estimates are free.
What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
We like to visit the site before we bid on work. This also gives us a chance to meet the customer face to face.
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
We are always working on training and safety. This is the only way you can keep up with the change in technology and new products.
How did you get started doing this type of work?
Working for my grandfather 1985
What types of customers have you worked with?
Homeowners, Business owners, State and Federal.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
First, and most importantly, I would say to ensure that the contractor is licensed. One way to ensure that the contractor is in fact licensed, is to check the CSLB website cslb.ca.gov or ask for his contractors card. Secondly I would find reviews based on that contractors past work and/or ask for a reference list from the contractor that will accurately reflect his passed work quality.
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
What is the clear scope of work. Stick to just that project.
