Electrical and Wiring Repair

I have nothing but great things to say about Graefser Electricians. They came to install my outdoor house lights and did an awesome job! I had a few issues with the wiring connected to my old lights; they noticed the issues right away and was able to do the minor repairs. They were on time, demonstrated great communication and were friendly and helpful! I definitely plan to book with them again for my other electrical needs!

I contacted Graefser Electric to provide an estimate on several jobs. Within a week, John not only provided me with a quote but completed the job to my outmost satisfaction. He is punctual, professional, honest, and very helpful. I was so happy with the work he completed for me that I already referred him to a friend. Also, I will be contacting him for my next job. I highly recommend him. You will not be disappointed.

Fan Installation

We could not have been more pleased with the electrical service rendered by John. We had a new install of an exhaust fan. While he was here, we added installs of 2 ceiling fans so needless to say John was very accommodating. Johns work was very well done & made sure to clean up after. Have another appt in the books for work to be done next month. Would highly recommend.

My experience with Graesfer electric was great. The work done was professional, he was on time and didnt rush through the job. All my questions were answered making me feel comfortable that I made the right choice. Their prices are very reasonable for the work that was done. And to top it all off him and his wife were such a pleasure to have in my home.. I will definatly be using them again and highly recommend them to others!!

Electrical and Wiring Repair

I had a difficult situation with the main buried power line coming to my house. Settling caused the line to pull out of the meter and we began the quest for a solution. Graefser Elecetric devised a great solution and carried out the difficult work of splicing more power line to the original buried line and reinstalling the meter at a new location. Throughout the process the communication was excellent and the work was carried out exactly as estimated and on the timeline needed to get the utility company to temporarily shut off power and reconnect once inspected. They also installed a new panel inside the house and made a messy unorganized setup into clean and organized wiring. Great service and work quality means I highly recommend this company and its people.
