I wasn't sure what I needed, but Absolute knew exactly what to do. I had a receptacle that quit working, and they were on the scene pretty quickly. The whole experience was outstanding.
It was my first time using Absolute Electric, and the technician was excellent—he was happy to do whatever I needed done.
Absolute Electric came on time, they were extremely professional, and they knew their stuff inside and out. They were very careful with safety; a couple of things were discovered that were no longer up to code, and they helped me remedy that.
We started using Absolute a few years back. The main technician I use is really nice. They've done a ceiling fan, an attic fan, and a circuit breaker. We had a bad storm a year ago; they were spot-on and told me exactly what was going on. They're really helpful on the phone, and they're really easy to schedule with.
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.
