Initially, it was to fix my garage door opener that wasn't working. After assessing that issue, they found more issues with electrical in the house. They gave me about three options to fix, understanding the costs. Their honesty and expertise made it a positive experience. Giving us a choice made us feel more comfortable with our decision and their sincerity.
They replaced my main electrical panel, service riser, and meter on the main house. They installed a whole-house surge protector on the main house and the garage apartment—positive experience.
Universal Home Experts installed three ceiling fans and a security light—positive experience because of the knowledgeable technician.
I had two lighting timers installed for outside lights. The tech was very friendly, and the equipment he installed exceeded my expectations.
Universal Home Experts installed lights and a switch for my new built-in residential bookcase. Very friendly, and completed the work in timely fashion.
We just got LED recessed lights, and we had some installed in our living room, kitchen, and formal living room. They were here for probably a day. They'd get an A.
We've used them multiple times for electrical work. They're very quick, and the electricians are all incredibly professional and very friendly. They have a lot of pride in what they do, and they do it right. They take their time and do things the way that they should be done. Overall, they just provide an excellent quality of work and excellent customer service. They rewired every circuit in our house and had to replace our panel. It was a very large scope of work, and they were here for four or five days doing it. We had a very intensive experience with them. All of the work was done on schedule, and we haven't had any issues with it since. I'd definitely give them an A.
Whatever they did, they did it well. I don't remember anything bad, and everybody was very nice. We had a lot of electrical work done last year, and then recently, we called them out for some plumbing. I'd give them an A.
Universal Home Experts was great. I liked that they were quick getting out there and that they were knowledgeable about what they were doing. We had some electrical work done because our house got struck by lightning. They did an A-worthy job.
My experience with them was great, and I meant to send them a letter to let them know. They were great. They were very nice, very cordial, and very informative. I was very pleased with both the electrician and plumbing group, and I would recommend them. If I need some more work done, I will call them back. I needed to take out my gas stove and put in an electric one, so they did the wiring for that. The ceiling fan in the living room would not work with the switch; I had to use the remote, and I didn't want that, so they fixed that. Then, they put up a ceiling fan, that I purchased, in the dining room. The plumber took out the gas water heater and put in an electric one. I'd give them an A. I was very pleased with them. I think it was Michael who also put in something on my breaker box that was some kind of surge protector.
