The Mr. Electric team replaced badly chewed electrical work in my attic with ease. The tight space did not deter them from completing the job. They are extremely professional and very knowledgeable. Communication is above and beyond what you could ask for as they consistently kept me appraised of the work they intended to do and any alternative methods to correct the issues.

We are so glad that we found Thumbtack – and electrician Bill Guinazzo (Bill’s 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 Guinazzo’s looked the best to us – 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 ‘circuits’ installed and wired to the ‘box’ – 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 ‘great expectations’ – and he did not disappoint. Bill is a very pleasant, calm, and low-key person (which we liked). And, he didn’t mind explaining a lot of stuff (not just electrical) to my brother and me (age 68 and 70), who had never owned a ‘real’ house before. (We had both always lived in apartments while pursuing separate careers in Maryland and New York. Now retired and both ‘single,’ we have returned to the area of Virginia where we were born and raised: Norfolk – and now our new-‘old’ house in Virginia Beach). Bill completed our project in two days (starting the day of his first visit) – buying the materials at Lowe’s 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 ‘leak’ 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 – 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 Lowe’s that had not been needed. All in all, I don’t think we could have had a better experience than hiring Bill Guinazzo for this project. Lucky us – to have found Thumbtack and Bill.

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. Powell came out the same day that we hired him, and fixed our voltage issue very quickly. He is extremely polite and professional, and made sure to show us exactly what cause the issue and how to fix in the future should we have any other issues. In addition, he was able to quote some other electrical work we are interested in getting done, and his advice and pricing was fantastic. We will definitely be calling him to come back and do the rest of the work on our new home!

I needed electrical work done urgently and I could not be happier with my decision to use Tristan's Electrical. His team came out in literally a foot of snow to fix an electrical switch in my bathroom. He provided the best service I have had from any technician before.

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!

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.

Yesterday an electrician from K & P came to our home to complete several jobs to include installing recessed lighting, fixing and installing exterior lighting, replacing TV cable, and identifying and fixing a problem we had with our jet bathtub,also installed new chandelier & ceiling fan. First he arrived on time. Then he proceeded to review each item he was going to work on and discussed any issues with each installation/repair with us. Then he just went to work. He is well-prepared, professional and completed all the work in a reasonable amount of time and most importantly his work was excellent. This is the 2nd time we have used K& P and have been very satisfied with their work. I would add for the amount of work they completed, the price he quoted and charged was more than reasonable. I highly recommend K& P for any residential electrical work you may need. A.wright

Mr. Riddick was very professional. He completed all work in a timely manner saving us time and money. He took the time to diagnose the problems he saw in my home and explained what I could do versus what was recommended by a licensed electrician. I highly recommend Mr. Riddick and will use him again as my electrician of choice in the future.
