Recessed lighting over the kitchen sink. AJ was very quick to respond to the request. He came over the same day to give quote. He surveyed the job and determined he needed to do more research to find shallow can that would fit in ceiling because of roof joists. While here, he noticed other wires that were exposed and voluntarily put wire nuts on fire safety. That same night, he sent me a link to lights he found online. After I got the lights and switch in the mail, he came over within a few days and installed them. AJ went the extra mile every step of the way to help me out. I would recommend him to anyone needing a handy electrician. Very satisfied with his professionalism.
I am so pleased with Daniel, I've already scheduled him for another job. He came on short notice to give me a estimate on a job 2 other electricians had done ... and messed up. He spent almost an hour checking the wiring and then climbing around my attic. When he came to give me the diagnosis, he took pictures, used the internet to show me where he had to order the speciality parts from and gave me a reasonable price for the job. He explained things so a layman would understand without talking down to me. He treated me like an equal. When he came back with the parts and did the repairs, he gave me the box the parts came in along with the bill/shipping label so I would know his prices were not inflated. He took the time to tell me what I would probably need in the future and gave me some great suggestions for maintaining my current setup. His prices were more than reasonable, he was incredibly courteous, and truly wants to get his business going. His skill set was amazing but he was willing to admit when he didn't know something and so needed to do some research. I don't know what more anyone could ask for in an electrician. You won't be disappointed if you hire him, I know I wasn't.
Mr. Mina was hired to replace the electrical panel in my home. He was prompt (always called to let me know he was in route and the estimated arrival time), very professional and an excellent electrician. I was very pleased and impressed with his work. So much so, that I hired him to do some additional work for me (installation of ceiling fans, update kitchen outlets, installed several new outlets throughout my house. His rates are the BEST. I will definitely called Mr. Mina again when I finalize my plans for future electrical work.
Sometimes, I am unsure when checking in with a contractor that has the lower bid, but you won't be disappointed with Joe Harrison. He did excellent work, and a very timely manner, and finished in less Time, so actually charged less than what he originally bid. Very honorable and hard-working master electrician. Would use him again in a heartbeat and probably will soon.
Mr. Electric of Chesapeake came to add an outlet and switch under my gas fireplace so we could add a fan to our gas fireplace. Upon checking to give me an estimate the electrician found that there was already an outlet installed. I was not made to feel like I wasted his time. He was very polite made a few suggestions and last. I would absolutely call them for other electrical needs
Jason installed a new fuse box, checked wiring, and installed a light fixture. He was professional, upbeat and responsive. Most of all he did a great job for a reasonable price. If you need an electrician, Jason should be your first call!
Mike's a great guy and did good work.
He did an amazing job on installing my light fixtures!!
We are so glad that we found Thumbtack â and electrician Bill Guinazzo (Billâs Electrical Solutions) -- while web-searching for information about local electricians. We had recently purchased an old 1953 house that still had two-prong (ungrounded) outlets in most of the rooms. We posted our project on Thumbtack for upgrading to grounded outlets -- and got immediate responses from several local electricians. Bill Guinazzoâs looked the best to us â based on his experience, reasonable hourly rate, and his comments about the scope of our project. He said that we would probably need 3-4 âcircuitsâ installed and wired to the âboxâ â and that each circuit could serve multiple receptacles (outlets). Based on the info that he provided, we made a rough estimate of the probable cost of the whole project, which turned out to be significantly less than we had anticipated. So we called Bill to make an appointment for him to visit our house and finalize a quote for us. Bill arrived promptly the next morning. He checked all of the old electrical outlets -- and our crawl space and attic space (one-story house). Best of all, his estimate for the cost of the whole project was in line with what we were expecting from his initial comments. So we hired him with âgreat expectationsâ â and he did not disappoint. Bill is a very pleasant, calm, and low-key person (which we liked). And, he didnât mind explaining a lot of stuff (not just electrical) to my brother and me (age 68 and 70), who had never owned a ârealâ house before. (We had both always lived in apartments while pursuing separate careers in Maryland and New York. Now retired and both âsingle,â we have returned to the area of Virginia where we were born and raised: Norfolk â and now our new-âoldâ house in Virginia Beach). Bill completed our project in two days (starting the day of his first visit) â buying the materials at Loweâs and giving us a copy of the receipt. Most of the wiring was done via our crawl space. On the second day, Bill told us that we had a âleakâ in the bathroom drainage pipes (where newer pvc pipe had been joined to old galvanized pipe). When he saw the leak in the crawl space, he took some photos to show to us â and he emailed me one of the photos so I can show it to plumbers when we ask for estimates to fix the leak. After completing the project, Bill double-checked all of the outlets to make sure that everything was in order. And before submitting his final invoice, he deducted the cost of some extra materials from the purchase at Loweâs that had not been needed. All in all, I donât think we could have had a better experience than hiring Bill Guinazzo for this project. Lucky us â to have found Thumbtack and Bill.
Home addition. Paul was very professional and went above and beyond my needs. Making sure I was informed on every step of the process. And making sure the work was done on time and on budget. Will be calling him for any further work I need and recommending him to anyone who needs works. Top electrician.
Mr. Double was very professional, had sound experience and clean and efficient in all the work that he has done for us. He is the only electrician we most prefer to work with.

Jonathan contacted me very quickly and came to the house within hours of contacting me via the messaging function in Thumbtack. He was able to find the issue quickly and resolved it at a very reasonable price. We have electricians in our family that are out of state; they estimated the cost to be one price and Jonathan did not to try to overcharge us - it was the exact cost we had anticipated!
