There were two separate projects, but it was all electrical work. They fixed a short circuit in my basement, and they repaired a broken circuit to an outside light fixture. They were able to solve both problems, and in both cases, I think they came in a little bit under their estimate, which was good. I was particularly impressed with the short circuit in basement that the technician was determined to find the problem. He had to check a number of different things in order to find it. He located it, and as for the other one, the guy had a suspicion of where the problem was, so he checked it out. It turned out it was there, and in doing that, he was able to save some work and save us some money. I would give them an A-. I do want to mention two other things about them—one, for the second job, I had called made an appointment with one of their service people, but they failed to record it. When the day came, I called when he didn't come, and they said 'oh we never recorded it,' so we had to reschedule. The second thing, in both cases the people came at the very end of their time slot, and they're not terribly good at telling me when they were going to be coming, so it's a little bit of an annoyance. The people, when they come, do a good job, but I wouldn't say they're the most punctual.
I don't have any complaints about Parrish. They put in a generator.
They usually come out and fix the problem, whether it's something we can handle or not, and they explain things to us—they're very prompt and quick about it. It's not their fault, but the only thing I don't like is that you have to wait for a window of opportunity for them to come out. So, you can't predict when you need to be at the house, especially if you're on a work schedule. Most recently, we've had them do electrical work. Their customer service is very good. We pulled them out of Best Pick Reports, and we've been happy with them ever since. I'd rate them as an A.
They put in a generator. They were timely and took care of everything. Everything I asked, they answered.
They were good. The gentleman and did my smoke detectors, and he was very thorough. I had heard of them through word of mouth. I would give them an A—they are pretty good.
They are very informative and friendly, and they answered all of our questions. We have never had any problems.
They installed a propane-powered standby generator and rewired certain electrical circuits in the house. They kept us informed, answered questions accurately and promptly, and the personnel were knowledgeable.?
They sold us and installed a generator for our home. Our experience was positive. Everyone at Parrish was courteous and helpful. They very patiently explained everything to us and answered questions. Their behavior engendered trust.?
They did an installation of a Generac whole-house generator. They gave all the required information prior to installation and completed the work within the time frame they established.?
They do air conditioning checks and electrical. They provide very professional service.
