We have an electric company that we really like called Absolute Electric. I really like the fact that they are not high-pressure salespeople. They come in, they fix what you wanted fixed, and they answer your questions. I think that it's important that the men who come in and fix things in your home are not making you feel pressured or uncomfortable, and they definitely didn't do that at all, which is why we like them. They communicated to me in a respectful manner, and they were able to explain things to in laymen's terms. I would give them an A+ grade.
They sent Robert, I think, the guy who had done work in my house before. He was very amiable, got the work done fast, and did a good job. So far, I've only used them twice in the last six months. I'm probably going to be seeing them in about another month or so. I'm having a bit more work done in one of my rooms, and naturally, those guys were the first ones I called. I'd give them an A+ grade. Thus far, they've done two jobs for me. I've had no problems at all, it has given me great peace of mind, and it still works perfectly to this day, so they get an A+ from me.
They were in and out pretty quick—they took care of everything. I have no problems. They fixed a broken recess light. The quality of the work was good. It was one light. It was in a 20-foot high ceiling, and I didn't have any way to get to it myself, so they came in, it was two guys with a big ladder, and they got it taken care of. I would use the company again. I'd give them an A+.
They came when they were supposed to, did what they said they would do, and it cost what they said it would. They did bonding of a gas line. I'd give them an A+. They did excellent work.
The technician arrived when he said he would. He was quick, proficient, and friendly, and he gave me advice on some other electrical subjects that I ran by him. This was my first time using them. They replaced a ballast in a kitchen florescent light. I'd give them the highest score possible, an A+.
The technician was professional and got the problem resolved and taken care of. He installed an entire new electrical box for the house. The quality of the work was excellent. I chose this company over others, and I'll give them an A.
The gentleman that came fixed everything and arrived on time. When you ask somebody to help with stuff and they fix it, that's a positive experience. I would recommend them and give them an A+.
The guy was very professional and very clean, and he came up with an innovative solution to a problem we had. He put in some lights. We couldn't go through the ceiling, but he was able to fidget through the wall, so he didn't have to punch holes in the ceiling for us. Everything worked out to my satisfaction. I was very satisfied. I would give them an A+.
They were very professional, and they showed up when they said they would. They explained the work that they were going to do—the work met with what they said they were going to do. It met the inspection without any problems, so I would say they were basically hassle-free. They replaced our electrical panel. We did an upgrade from a 150-amp to a 200-amp. I would give them an A+.
They did exactly what I asked to be done and did a very quality job. They fixed the generator on my house. This was not my first time using their service. I have been using them for six months. They were very respectful of my home when they serviced me. I'd give them an A+. I would recommend them. They're very customer-oriented.
