    Disappointed, cancelled the booking
    I liked them a lot in person but the job was simple and fast and quote seemed an hour high. Electrician friend agreed. I asked for details on the cost estimate and I saw told I was welcome to go elsewhere that his rates stand, no breakdown of costs of labor materials and time given. Hired someone else licensed and bonded for half the price that took half the time quoted.

    Houston electric was great! They were efficient, fast and very easy to work with. They did what they said they were going to do and were very reasonable with their estimate. I would highly recommend them to anyone.

    Gahrett and his team were great! Handled everything professionally, cleaned up, and talked to me about what was going on every step of the way. Quoted a fair price as well

    Hi, Garhett came out and installed an electrical outlet in our Garage since our son will be living in there temporarily. He went over all the possible ways to do it and I chose one I was happy with. He did great job and it didn't take him long. Thx Garhett. Will definately drop your name to anyone looking for a good electrician.

    Great job. They did the job neatly and were reasonably priced. Assessed the job before starting to make sure they had the right parts.

    Very impressed with Garhett, the owner of Houston Electric. Very knowledgeable, thorough. Tricky trouble shooting of the short circuit in our garage/back bathroom but all came out fine.

    The electrical outlets in both of our bathrooms suddenly quit working a few days ago for no apparent reason. We tried all the usual things (re-setting the GFI outlet, testing breakers, etc) and finally bought and replaced the one outlet that had a GFI re-set button. That didn't help. We contacted "Thumbtack" yesterday and selected Houston Electric LLC. Terry Houston and another young fellow came today, found out what had caused the problem (an unknown GFI in the garage that had tripped) and had it fixed in under a half hour for only the basic service charge, which was very reasonable. We were very impressed with the guys, as they were professional, polite and competent. We wouldn't hesitate to call them in future for anything electrical. F. Dutton Sun City/Las Vegas, NV

    Moved an outlet in my concrete floor over 3 feet. They had to jackhammer out the concrete, move the wire in conduit. install a floor outlet. They quoted me 300-400. I agreed to this, but when they job was done they increased the cost to $475. Quoting that they needed to user more concrete than they thought. The did good work( 5 star ), but the increasing of the bid after the fact was not cool ( 1 star ). Make sure you get the bid from them in writing from this company. They may have made more money on this job from me by increasing the cost after the job, but they also now have this review that other will see.

    Great job pulling wire for ceiling fans and there installation. I had a situation arise and he was good enough to let me cancel with just a few hours notice and reschedule a couple of days later. Again his work was excellent, cleaned up after finishing his work, in a timely manner also and I will definitely use him in the future.
