This was my first adventure with finding a contractor for any project, and via Thumbtack. I spoke with Mike prior to selecting him for the job, provided him with the problem I was experiencing - destroyed external outlet and cover - and he quoted me a very reasonable and fair price to solve the problem. He was very flexible with scheduling an appointment around my work and personal schedule. Mike arrived early to the house, was well-prepared, professional, and extremely thorough in the job. He also went above and beyond in checking the electrical flow of the fountain pump (determined to be non-functioning and required replacement), several other external outlets, and even took the time to check one of the light sockets in the garage, as I was concerned it was faulty - determined to be safe. In addition to the main contracted project, and all of the extra tasks, Mike was very efficient and timely. I STRONGLY recommend Mike with Powertech for all of your future electrical issues ... and I will definitely call him in the future. Thank you Mike!!See more

***PLEASE READ*** I will begin this review by expressing the genuine feeling of desperation I was experiencing before I came to Thumbtack seeking help. Unfortunately, I had to kick out contractors that had left behind a mess of unfinished and unsatisfactory work. I came to Thumbtack hoping for a miracle and I found that miracle with Julio’s iFix Handyman Services. Let me begin by saying how prompt Julio was in replying to my inquiry about fixing things such as unfinished tile and grouting, drywall repairs, kitchen countertop finishing, etc. Julio informed me that he and his team would be able to assist in my laundry list of items. When Julio’s team arrived at my home (on time) I was wowed by their professionalism and their level of expertise and experience! The work that they performed superbly exceeded my expectations and I want anyone reading this to know that there is no need to look any further for any of your handyman service needs. I have already secured their services for another job and will continue to use them for my home’s handyman and contracting needs. Thank you Julio and team! You all saved the day!See more

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

What’s the best way to set up a consultation or an appointment with an electrician during the COVID-19 pandemic?

To set up an appointment or consultation with an electrician during the COVID-19 pandemic, ensure that you are performing as much of the process digitally as possible. The best way to begin is by conducting an online search for local electricians. Ask if they can perform consultations over a phone or video call to comply with social distancing mandates. You should also discuss a strategy for how to complete the project during social distancing or whether the project should be completed once the pandemic has ended.

How can I find out if an electrician is considered an essential COVID-19 service provider?

Guidelines are available from both local and federal government agencies to clarify which services qualify as essential during the COVID-19 pandemic. To determine whether an electrician is considered an essential service provider in your area, check your city or state’s government websites.

For federal guidelines, consult CISA’s Identifying Critical Infrastructure During COVID-19 page, which outlines 16 critical infrastructure sectors. But not that some, not all, jurisdictions follow CISA’s definitions of critical infrastructure.

Can I use digital payments to pay for electrical and wiring repair?

These days, many electricians will accept digital payments for electrical work and wiring repair instead of traditional cash or check. The COVID-19 pandemic has helped speed up the adoption of platforms like PayPal, Zelle, Square Cash, Venmo, Google Pay and others as a means of complying with social distancing guidelines.

As you search for electricians online, ask whether they’ll accept digital payment and set up a strategy for staying safe. 

Does an electrician need to enter my home?

Whether an electrician needs to enter your home depends on the type of work that needs to be completed. Any work on receptacles, lights and more located on the inside or outside of your house will likely require an electrician to enter your home.

Ask electricians in your area to perform a video consultation instead of a traditional walk-through to assess the project. During the consultation, they should be able to tell you if they’ll need to enter your home or not.
