    Bryan was easy to work with and very helpful. Our ceiling fan kept shorting out, tripping the fuse. After thoroughly checking every potential cause, Bryan uncovered it was the fan itself. He explained all of our options and when we ultimately decided to buy a new phone, he was willing to work around our schedule to get the new one installed. Will definitely use him in the future.

    Bryan was in one word, amazing! He was very responsive, thorough and friendly. Our project included running electricity back to our shed, installing lights on our back porch and installing a ceiling fan inside. It may sound like a simple project, but having an older house came with quite a few problems. Bryan always had a solution and went above and beyond to fix some of our other electrical issues outside. You will not regret hiring Bryan... we definitely didn't and already have more projects we would like to utilize his knowledge and outstanding work on! We would (and have) recommend him to anyone.

    Bryan was very responsive. He not only scheduled me quickly, but kept me informed of exactly when he would arrive. When doing the estimate Bryan was very thorough and considerate of doing the best job at the best price. Now that the job is completed I can say I am very happy with the quality of work, the cost and the work ethic Bryan exhibited. I would definitely recommend him.

    Outstanding service. Bryan came out within a few days of my Thumbtack post. He is a very knowledgeable and well trained electrician. He installed an outdoor motion light, a timer for outdoor lights and fountain as well as put in a new outlet. He took the time to assess the job and also created the best solutions for the project. He even fixed some things that weren't involved in the original bid. He also came back the next day to finish the job and was very flexible due to our schedules. He was also reasonably priced as far as electricians go. All in all, I would highly recommend.

    Bryan was amazing!!! Very helpful and honest. He actually realized that my moms water heater was still under warrantee, which saved us hundreds of dollars. I highly recommend this company to anyone who wants honest good work.

    SuperStar!
    Bryan has done several different jobs for me, all of with which I have been extremely pleased. Bryan approaches the job from a very cerebral approach whether its for wiring a light or for wiring an entire office for IT purposes. I normally don't write reviews, but Bryan is so good at what he does, and so professional that I was compelled to write this. If you need computer work, electrical work or a security system installed, Bryan is your man. He deserves more than a 5 star rating!
  • Paula S. Nov 21, 2016
    Bryan was a pleasure to work with
    I hired Bryan a year ago when I was building my home. Not only is he professional and courteous, he really knows his stuff! All of our inspections passed the first time around. He showed up when he said he was going to show up, and got the job done when he said he would! I would highly recommend anyone looking for electrical work to speak with Bryan and BW Electeic before you make your final decision. - Paula

Q&A

What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
Each and every job is different and its extremely difficult to give a firm price on work without first seeing the work that needs to be done. We provide Free onsite written estimates to our customers and warn those about getting a firm price up front. There are too many variables that could come into play with any general repair and anyone who can give you a firm price without seeing the work is most likely not going to keep the same price in the end. The price we give you is the price you pay!
What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
If possible I like to view the work in person to ensure that my quote is right the first time. I do not believe in "capturing" the customer with a low bid only to hit them on the other side. I will always send a response asking for more information. This ensures me of the quality of the project and allows me to more accurately provide you pricing. I am able to view projects within 60 miles within 24 hours of the request and in emergencies within 2 hour of the request.
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
Growing up with an electrician as a father kinda starts you off at an early age. As I did graduate from college I decided id rather be working on my own then behind a desk. I love what I do and very good at what I do! Years of electrical experience through apprenticeship programs, work programs and other continuing educational programs. I was an active IBEW union member for over 15 years and broke off to work on my own. Beaver County Technical College - Electrician '96 Local IBEW '97-2015' Carcaise Home Builders Pine Street Construction DBT National Construction Group Apex Construction and Home Improvement BW Electric & Home Improvement Dollar General Direct Hollywood Video Walmart Sun Energy
How did you get started doing this type of work?
I got into this field as my father has been an electrician for over 40 years. I spent 18+ years out West fixing and flipping homes which led to a small construction company. Coming out of college, instead of going to corporate America I got my first commercial gig for Hollywood video and was responsible for wiring over 25 independent retail locations. I have worked all over the United States and have seen just about everything. I love working with my hands, always have!
What types of customers have you worked with?
I have tremendous experience in residential new construction, residential remodeling, commercial new builds and store changes as well as installing general appliances, motors and generators.
Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?
Too many projects to list. Feel free to message me for a list of references or pictures.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
If someone gives you a price off the start; be prepared to get sticker shocked when they show up to do the work :/. You can't properly quote out a job without seeing the work with your own eyes.
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
Be wary of a straight forward price from someone who hasn't seen the actual work that needs to be completed. There are many different variables that goes into a project that are most times overlooked by the customer. Low ball estimates or prices that seem to good to be true are usually just that!
