A selection of 137 homeowner reviews:
“I liked Pat Murphy's timeliness, professionalism, and cleanliness. They're amazing—really awesome guys. They installed some exit signs for my new business. I'd give them an A+ all the way. They went out of their way to make sure it was all done right and everything matched. I really, really appreciated them.”
“It was excellent. The gentleman that came out was personable and competent. He explained everything he was going to do and did it as specified. We had a house that had fire damage, so they had to rewire a number of circuits, and they also fixed some damaged cable. I'd give them an A+.”
“They were great with communication, very professional, and they stayed as long as they needed to get the work done. They did a lot of electrical installation. I'd give them an A+.”
“They were fast, honest, and complete. I'm really happy—A+.”
“I had some minor issues with outlets not working and some box issues that needed to be rewired. They're very friendly and prompt. They came in, got the job done, and left. I'd give them an A+ rate.”
“They were prompt and really professional. That was for my light in my closet. It was A+ work.”
“He was very nice. He came out when we called him. They changed an electrical plug. I'd give them an A+. They were real nice and called right back.”
“We had a new circuit put in in the garage. I liked that they were able to do what we asked them in a relatively short period of time. They deserve an A+.”
“They did a couple things around the house. They were on time and professional. They deserve an A.”
“We had the main electrical cable to the house replaced. They did a good job. They did what they said they were going to do and charged what they said they were going to charge. It would be an A.”
“It was very good. My wife did that. They had to upgrade some of the electrical stuff, like a light switch and stuff like that. They did a good job and it worked after he worked on it. I'd say an A grade.”
“They were quick to respond, the worker was nice, seemed upfront with everything, and they did a good job. They had to remount the power pole to the house. They earned an A.”
“They did a good job. I liked the expertise. I had electrical shorts in the house, so they identified them and fixed them. I'd give them an A on everything.”
“They fixed an electric box for us. I'd give them an A.”
“They came quickly; they were courteous and efficient. They rewired a box for me. I'd give them an A.”
“They're very good. My experience has been great with them. They come out quickly, and they keep good records of what they've done in the past, so if it's something that they've worked on and something didn't turn out just right, they'll come and fix it for free. They're very reliable and very quick. I'd rate them as an A+.”
“The last time I used them, they were great. They were on time, came exactly when they said, and had somebody call in advance to confirm the appointment. They had to come back with the part, but they came back exactly when they said they would. I hate to say it, but they did what they said, and these days, a lot of times, people don't, so when people do it, it's like, 'Oh!' It should be like that all the time, but it's not. Pat Murphy Electric gets an A.”
“Everything's been fine.”
“They put in a new switch, and it didn't work, but they came back out immediately and put in another one that did work, so they made it all right. I would absolutely recommend the company to family and friends. I would rate them as an A.”
“They were easy to work with, showed up on time, did the job in a reasonable amount of time, and got out. I had them do some work on a ceiling fan for me. I'd recommend the company and give them an A.”
“I was quite pleased with the service.”
“I remember the guy was real friendly. He was pretty helpful. With the guest bedroom, there was a problem with the connection line, so he found out what it was and reconnected it. I saved the card, because I thought if I have problems again, I'd call him again. I'd give them an A.”
“They did some things for me in the spring. It was good. They did a nice job. They basically came in, did it, and showed up when they needed to. They did what I needed and changed out a panel, so everything's good. They'd get an A.”
“I was pleased with the person that came here. He did the whole job and was very understanding. He explained to me all the things that I'd need. I told him to make a complete check of the house, and he fixed something in the panel in the basement that was not working properly. He told me that when they put it in, they put a wrong item over there, and that was the reason it wasn't working. He also talked to me about some kind of security I didn't have before, and he put that in. I'd give them an A. I will recommend him to anybody I know.”
“They were fast, the quote was exact in regards to the work that had to be done, and there wasn't anything added on at the end. The man was very nice and pleasant to have in our house. He fixed some undermount lighting, installed a couple of electrical outlets, and moved some cable lines. I'd rate them as an A.”
“It was good. It was all fine. I'd give them an A.”
“It's been a while, but I know that I would use them again. I just used them the one time. They'll get an A.”
“They were very personable, good, and not condescending. They were good at bringing it down to the lowest common denominator and letting us know what was wrong without making us feel stupid. They made it understandable. We didn't feel cheated. When our house was hit by lightning, they came out. For our homeowner's insurance, they had proof that our house was actually hit by lightning. With half of our house, all the electricity was burned out—like, everything. The whole system was kaput, but the other half of the house, which was really strange, was fine. They came out and showed us how the lightning hit the house and followed this one path throughout the house. It was really weird. I'll give them an A.”
“Pat Murphy Electric is A+. They did a complete rewire of our wiring receptacles and some circuits, and they put on a power conditioner and a surge suppressor for lightning. They did a lot of work. They were extremely professional and punctual, and they did a great job.”
“I had a perfect experience with Pat Murphy Electric—they were great. They were very clean and very communicative, and their uniforms were professional. We had new appliances put in the kitchen, and apparently the stove was wired on earlier requirements, so we needed some additional wiring installed. They're definitely an A+.”
“The fellow who came out was very helpful and very pleasant, and he explained everything he was going to do. They installed a whole-house surge protector for us, and I'd give them an A+.”
“Pat Murphy Electric did an electrical assessment and some repairs. The individual who came was super professional and knowledgeable. I just had a lot of confidence in that individual. I'd give them an A rating, for sure.”
“They put some light boxes in the ceiling in the kitchen for me and some lights hanging over the island. Then, the bathrooms had some light boxes put in the wall over the sinks. I'm trying to find some lights from some different companies right now so I can put those up—those guys are coming back out again. They were really nice people, and they did a great job for me—A+.”
“I found Pat Murphy Electric in Best Pick Reports, and I would give them an A+. I really liked the man who came out.”
“They were on time. The electrician was very knowledgeable and very respectful. Sometimes, service people treat women as dumb, but he was very sincerely respectful. He gave me estimates for everything, and he went over everything before he did it and made sure we thoroughly agreed. There was not one bit of mess to clean up. They deserve an A+.”
“We wanted to put strobe lights out on our porch and also on our deck, and Pat Murphy did that. While they were there, they looked at everything else we had, and where we were not up to snuff, they went ahead and made the changes. We're very pleased with them. I guess I'm just in a spot where I'm very comfortable knowing that if I had any kind of electric problem, I could give them a call, and they would fix it. They're an A-level company.”
“I've had them come out twice. They've changed electrical sockets, and we had a problem with the ceiling fan and the switch that they took care of for us. I would give them an A grade.”
“Pat Murphy Electric put in an outlet, a light switch, and then a panel extension. They came, they did what they said they would do, and they did it quickly. They get an A.”
“We had him install two lights above our garage. We have conjunction boxes in, and we had them put a timer up there, also. He did a phenomenal job. He was very neat, very clean, and very courteous—I liked everything about him. When we have another job we need done, we're going to call him again, believe me. They definitely earned an A.”
“They installed security lights, grounded my house properly, and installed surge protection. They did the work on time, and they made suggestions about what we needed. I would give them an A.”
“They put in a ceiling fan and fixed a light in my kitchen. They were on time, and they were very friendly, knowledgeable, thorough, and fast. I'd rate Pat Murphy Electric as an A.”
“I think they've been to our house ten times. The last thing they did was install new lighting. They get here really fast, and they do what they say they're going to do. They should get an A.”
“They changed out a main breaker. The guy showed up on time and knew what he was doing. They get an A from me—they were pretty good.”
“The electrician did a great job and didn't spend a long of time doing it. It was very nice—a grade-A job.”
“I had him look at a couple things, and he gave me an estimate. I definitely needed something done, and he took care of it. I'd had a dryer installed, and the cord had to be replaced because the receptacle in the house was 220 volts, and it had a different type of plug. He also had to replace the electrical panel—that was the big thing. The electrician was a really, really nice guy. He was friendly and easy to talk to. I'd give them an A.”
“I've used them for many years, and I've never had any issues with them. They always do a good job, so they get an A in my book.”
“Pat Murphy was excellent. The wires coming to my house were all frayed, and they looked like they were pulling away from the house. Two electricians came, and I was really happy with them. They were polite, efficient, and really quick. They did great work. I'd give them the highest rating.”
“Pat Murphy Electric does excellent work and solved all my problems on multiple occasions. They replaced some three-circuit tracks, solved some strange electrical problems I had, and repaired and replaced a number of different outlets. They completed everything to my satisfaction. They deserve a top grade.”
“Pat Murphy was great. The technician was super friendly; he explained everything. He showed us where the previous guys screwed up, and they fixed it. I'd give them an A.”
“I use Pat Murphy Electric; my experience was wonderful. I would grade them an A+. They're great.”
