Absolute is professional, efficient, and gracious. They did an excellent, superb job. They fixed our antique fuse box, and they installed a circuit breaker and some wiring. They also installed four or five ceiling fans and some switches for the fans. We're thrilled. I would absolutely give them an A+, and I would recommend them to anyone. I just totally love them.

I had a fantastic experience with Absolute, and I worked with the best electrician I've ever worked with in my life. He was hardworking and very polite. I had him install a generator, and the quality of the work was excellent. I'd give them an A+.

Absolute Electric is amazing. He's very straightforward and professional. He worked on the electric for our deck, and he did everything to code. He's very customer service oriented. I've recommended him to several people. Absolute is definitely an A+.

They came at the time they said they would, and they finished very quickly. They were clean. I was very, very happy with the work they did. We had a bathroom vent fan that never worked in our home since we moved in. Over the phone, Absolute Electric diagnosed it and said what they thought it was, and it was exactly what they thought it was. They switched it out and fixed it very quickly. They were actually in and out before I had to leave for work, which was great. I would give them an A.

They did an addition of the circuit for multiple circuits. They did wiring, outlets, and lighting, and a ceiling fan as well. They finished the job in a reasonable amount of time. They cleaned up after themselves. They're definitely an A.

They were here a month ago, and they were great. They came out to put in a breaker, to check why the breaker was blowing on the microwave. I think it was fine. I would give them an A.

Absolute Electric came quickly, and they knew what they were talking about. They were knowledgeable about the field. They troubleshot some of the issues and ended up finding the issue—not only replaced that problem, but they located another problem and fixed that as well. I'd give them an A.

Absolute Electric did work for me around November. They were very clean, on time, and it was quality work. I think that would be the main thing that I took away from it. I had very good communication with the crew, and they provided very good customer service. They had excellent cleanliness of the crew. I would use this company again. I would give them an A.

I was moving out of a condo, and in part of the walk-through there were some electrical issues that had to be fixed. They repaired those for me. They did good, quality work. They finished the job in a reasonable amount of time. I'd give them an A.

Absolute Electric installed a ceiling fan and exterior floodlights. The guy was fast, efficient, and clean. It was fine. They finished the work in a reasonable amount of time, and they cleaned up after themselves when they were done. I absolutely would use the company again. I would give them an A.
