The work was fine. They did the work well and didn't need to be chased; he understood what he needed to do. They adjusted some circuits in the house and ran some new wires. They were competent, did well, and were very professional. It was excellent.
I liked that they did the work. They ran outlets for me. They were on time and professional, and they figured out a solution. I would give Kolb Electric an A+.
They came out and installed a roof fan. They were very good. They did what they said they would do, and they came in on schedule when they said they were going to come. The guy was very courteous; it was just one person that came in, and he did the work very quickly and cleaned up. The price was what they said it would be. It all worked out well, and I'd recommend them. I would use them again. I'd rate them as an A+.
They did what they were supposed to do. I haven't had any problems, and they were on time and nice to deal with. They repaired a light fixture and put in some new switches. I've used Kolb Electric before. They're definitely an A.
We had a good experience with the electricians that helped us with the electrical work. We had a light out. Everything was fine—they were in and out and got the job done. It was an A.
Whatever it was that they did was a fine job, and we didn't have a problem.
We were very pleased. We had a sump pump put in, and somebody had to do some electric work that needed to be done. Kolb Electric gets an A—it was fine.
They were prompt and on time, and they seemed knowledgeable. There was an outlet that was not working, and they troubleshot it, diagnosed it, and fixed it in a very short amount of time.
They were professional. My wife had no problems with their displays and technique. They were quick and expedient, and they even showed up when they said they would. I believe they replaced part of our air conditioning unit. I would give them an A.
Kolb Electric installed a ceiling fan. They kept their appointments. They were courteous, they did a good job, and they accomplished the task I needed them to.
