“I did not use Mister Sparky for this project. They did a very good review of the premise. They gave me a lot of paperwork, and I knew immediately that it was way too expensive. It was twice as expensive as the other electrical contractors. They were professional and pleasant. Me, being in a business, they weren't going to sell me anything.”

Review by
03/23/2018

“When I called, they could give me no information about the cost until he came here on site. The cost was three times the amount of what I paid another electrician to do the same job for. He was very rude; I have two two-year olds, and he looked straight at me and said, ‘I'm going to need your full attention.’”

Review by
03/23/2018

“I thought the guy was unprofessional. He seemed like a putz. He talked a lot out loud to himself, and he had to borrow my brother’s saw, and he broke it. $800 to put a plug in the floor was ridiculous.”

Review by
03/23/2018

“The electrician was nice and professional. He did a good job. The payment was taken care of, with no issues, and was a reasonable price. I like their tiered pricing system, and that it's upfront.”

Review by

“We have had people to the house three times and always have been satisfied with the work and the professionalism of the technicians.”

Review by
02/01/2017

“They did good. They installed a new plug for our washing machine. We moved to a new house, and it was gas, but there wasn't an electric plug-in for our dryer. They were quick—A+.”

Review by
02/01/2017

“He gave us a fair price and explained what he was doing and did the work apparently well. I'd give them an A. It's hard for me to judge their expertise, because I'm not an electrician.”

Review by
02/01/2017

“I did ok with the first guy that came and did some work, but I found that the pricing model was pretty ridiculous. So, I had actually gotten them on a contract, for those little plans that Mr.Sparky uses, but in the end I wish I never called them because I thought that it was kind of a scam. I'd say a C-.”

Review by
02/01/2017

“We had one of their people come about a week ago to check on the safety of our system. He was very effective and found some things. We were pleased that he did. I would say it was a very positive experience. It was definitely A+. I would recommend them.”

Review by
02/01/2017

“It was about a year ago. They get the job done. I'd give them a B. They had to come back because it didn't work after he installed the lights. They didn't work right the first time. Customer service and cleanliness was fine.”

Review by
02/01/2017

“He was exceptionally professional. He put his little booties on. He was very explanative; he explained everything thoroughly. The work was wonderful, but it was just expensive. I'd say an A. They're expensive.”

Review by
02/01/2017

“I had some work done. I had a very good experience with them. He graduated from the school, I used to teach him. When I was teaching, he was the same years I was there. I'd give them an A+. They were great.”

Review by
02/01/2017

“They're actually good. I think they're excellent. They're very responsive, the guy that showed up was pretty courteous, and they got the job done. No complaints from me. I'd recommend them to other people.”

Review by
02/01/2017

“I planned to call him back sometime this summer to fix a couple of things. Everything was done to my satisfaction. He did what he needed to, and I'm satisfied with that. They were A+. Everything was fine.”

Review by
02/01/2017

“That was the Electrician. I mean, they're super expensive, but they came out on a Sunday so I'm thankful for that. I'd only use them in the case of an emergency. Otherwise, their price doesn't make any sense. I'd say they’re B+. In case of an emergency, I'd highly recommend them. For regular stuff, I wouldn't use them.”

Review by
02/01/2017

“The experience was definitely positive. Just, there's been a couple of issues with the lighting. But I know they've been really good about contacting me, and they want to make an appointment to come back out. So, overall it's positive, definitely positive. They were really great, they were there on time, they did everything they were supposed to do, but we've been having issues with lighting, so I don't know how to properly grade them on the overall experience. I'd be most likely to recommend them, definitely.”

Review by
02/29/2016

“I hired them a year ago, and they were good. They were very professional. I don't have anything bad to say. They replied to my calls very quickly, they were on time, and they didn't charge an exorbitant amount. They were working with the interior of the home. I would rank them as an A because I haven't had any problems. They did their work.”

Review by
02/29/2016

“The actual gentleman who came to work was very nice, professional and prompt. We had to have him come back because one of the lights wasn't working again. That happened pretty quickly afterward. When we called the company back, it was a little bit cumbersome to give my neighbors the permission to call in because I had set up the initial appointment. We're in a condo unit where there are three of us that each own our unit but we're in the same building. So that was the only thing that I would say maybe was not as convenient. Other than that, the service is good and Jay was our electrician. He is very polite and professional. One of the jobs was just to look at whether a light in the back hallway wasn't working. I'm not exactly sure what needed to be fixed if it was just the wire or the bulb. He installed motion-sensor lights on the driveway on the outside on the exterior. I would say they're a B grade.”

Review by
02/29/2016

“They put in a new breaker box for me. They did some work outside on the main wire—the big thick cable that comes from the electric line down the house to the meter. They put a plug in next to the breaker box. I would give them an A+. I was more than happy with what they did, but I was also happy with the electrician because he explained everything he was going to do. Instead of just doing it and saying, ‘Well, this is what we did; sign the bill and pay me,’ whenever he got ready to do something that he saw needed to be done, he came in, called me, and said, ‘Do you want to come look at this?’ He told me why he had to replace it or why he should replace it. He was very, very good. I felt like this man knew what he was doing.”

Review by
02/29/2016

“They did a superb job. There was a really bad storm a few months back, and one of our trees out in front took out our electric service from the street. They restored our power by putting it all back. They're top-of-the-line. I like them so much I had them come back and do more work for my house. I actually have friends in the business, but because the kid was so professional, I had him come back to do more work inside of the house. It's unbelievable. They're a very good company. I would give them an A. Honestly and truthfully, they really hooked us up the first time, and I didn't expect it would be over as quick as it was. I had them come back again, so I'm very happy.”

Review by
02/29/2016

“It was very expensive for what was done. It was finished. I had a plug and it did work when he finished and then I had something else done for the bathrooms. It was another plug and that was incomplete but he did work with it. He did some work down in the basement too. I wouldn't use them again but I'm quite sure that he knows his work. I think he owns his own construction business so I'm sure he's very capable. I would give him a B grade. For what he did, it was very expensive and I found out that it should have been less than that but that was my fault for not inquiring at the beginning of how much the work was going to be so I did learn something.”

Review by
02/29/2016

“Mister Sparky is really good. We renovated our home, and the outdoor light had never been properly connected to one of the entrances into my house, so they rewired everything and put in a new light fixture. I would give them the highest rating—A+.”

Review by
02/29/2016

“I use Mister Sparky all the time. They’re fantastic, super knowledgeable, and super friendly. They moved light fixtures, installed new light fixtures, and installed electricity for some audio-visual installations. I would grade them as an A.”

Review by
02/29/2016

“Mister Sparky goes above and beyond in all their services. I had them do quite significant and very major electrical work. I had a new electrical service running through my house; I needed a new meter and everything. They’re an A++ company.”

Review by
02/29/2016

“They installed some lights, and I would give them an A rating. They were very attentive to making sure that everything was done properly.”

Review by
02/29/2016

“They just did a general installation of a light fixture. The owner of the company had done some plumbing work for me in the past. I would give them an A.”

Review by
02/29/2016

“I had a garage opener that was out. They deserve an A. The workers and customer service was great. I like the overall price tag.”

Review by

Review by

“I'm very satisfied. I will use them again. The work they did had to do with Christmas lights. I would give them an A because I had no complaints.”

Review by
02/23/2016

“It was fine. They did it in a timely manner, and I had it done the same day. I chose them because they were an emergency service. They put in a whole new electrical panel. I would rate them as an A.”

Review by
02/23/2016

“They were on time. They asked me before they did anything and told me what it was going to cost. That was much appreciated. I chose them because they’re one of the best companies. I would give them an A.”

Review by
02/23/2016

“They did a plug for a timer. I'm sure it's going to be fine, and everything looks good. The customer service was fine. Everybody was fine, and they were polite, so everything went well. I’d grade them A.”

Review by
02/23/2016

“I thought it was quite expensive. $400 just for that? There wasn't that much to do. I believe it was the main switch and a panel. The work was done properly. It was done right. They're an A.”

Review by
02/23/2016

“They were just very thorough, pleasant, and prompt. They replaced a breaker. I thought they had a good estimate, which is why I chose them. I would rate them an A.”

Review by
02/23/2016

“I had some difficulty with my pool pump, and they were able to fix it with very little difficulty. The customer service was flawless. Anything that I asked them to help me with, they were able to do it. They didn't slow down at all, and they just went through it. They get an A.”

Review by
02/23/2016

“It was fine and satisfactory. The work was great. They were polite, they knew what they were doing, and I got exactly what I wanted. They put on a better connector than I thought they would, so I was quite satisfied with the work. They cleaned up afterward. Overall, it was all very good. They put a small terminal junction box off the main power box, they drilled a small hole through the side of the house, and then they installed a 50-amp connector. I needed some way of hooking up my power cable to the house, so that's how they did it. It was a relatively easy installation, and everything went well. I'm quite happy. They’re definitely an A.”

Review by
02/23/2016

“Mister Sparky did what they said they were going to do, and I had no problems. It was all good, and you can't say that about just anybody who walks into our house. They put in one of those cooling and heating systems. I thought they were excellent, so I would give them an A for excellent. They did a good job.”

Review by
02/23/2016

“It was a very good experience—good people. I'm very pleased with Mister Sparky. They did a good job. I think one thing I liked was that they explained to us what needed to be done, and then they came back and fixed it. It was very clear, they were prompt, and they were professional. We have had no issues since then. They’re an A company.”

Review by
02/23/2016

“He's the electrician that I had come to the house. I've been calling everybody about Mister Sparky and how quickly they come to the house and how respectful the technician was that came. It was a great experience. I really couldn't ask for a better experience. They're reliable and inexpensive. He was great. I would give them an A.”

Review by
02/16/2016

“They came to do some work for us and it was alright. I think I would call them again when I need it. There were two or three things that he did. Changing a bulb or something like that. It was nothing very special. He didn't do a very tough or professional job so I cannot give him a grade for something like that. I would say it was good work.”

Review by
02/16/2016

“They came in a timely manner. The whole entire electricity in my building was out, so I had to call the electrician. They basically just came in, waited for my landlord's approval, and then once he got it, he fixed the issue. He was real nice to me by letting me use his phone to call my landlord. My phone was dead. It was just really good. He had to change the whole breaker because when I’d flipped the switch after my electricity went out, the entire breaker just snapped. It wouldn't move. I would give them an A.”

Review by
02/16/2016

“I thought it was extremely expensive. They came that day that I needed them. He did what he needed to do. Of course, he looked for more to do that I don't really think was necessary. By the time he was done, it was like $1,000 which I thought was excessive. What he did do, he did correctly I assume. He corrected a bathroom exhaust fan. I guess he put a new one in, ultimately. He also took care of some other little things. I would give them a B rating.”

Review by
02/16/2016

“I liked the fellow, Josh. He was very polite. He was very matter of fact, and he was efficient. They were there on time, and they were there a very short period of time to get all the work done. He was very helpful. He gave me some very good advice, and I appreciated it. They put in some new switches, they put in a new electrical box, and they changed a lightbulb for me that I couldn't reach. I would absolutely grade them an A.”

Review by
02/16/2016

“They worked very hard to resolve the issue. When the first electrician came to our house and spent hours, probably much longer than expected, they came back with a second person and were able to resolve the issue at that point. They still only charged the flat rate that we had agreed upon. We’d lost power to two of our rooms, so they were trying to figure out what happened. They’d get an A.”

Review by
02/16/2016

“The person that we had was very helpful and straightforward. He put in new wiring. He told us what was needed and gave us a quote, so it was good. He did a very good job. I would give him the best grade.”

Review by
02/16/2016

“I used them about six months ago. It was an emergency. I’d lost power, and they were here within an hour. I was just very pleased with them. They reattached the mesh that was torn from my house. I hadn't used them before. They were just the first people that picked up the phone. I would give them an A.”

Review by
02/16/2016

“That was probably over a year and a half ago. I liked their hours. They come out late at night. They changed our electrical panel. I would give them an A rating.”

Review by
02/16/2016

“It was great. We talked. He gave me a price on the scope of work. He did exactly what I asked and did it when he told me he would do it. He repaired an electric service. They're an A grade.”

Review by

“They installed the electrical work for my ceiling fans. They were very nice. They did what they had to do and I'm pleased with the work. They ran it through the ceiling. I would grade them as an A.”

Review by

“They were awesome, and they did a great job. They were neat, clean, and professional. I love them, and I highly recommend them. They upgraded my electrical system. I’d give them an A.”

Review by

“The guy who comes is the same guy who has come a couple of times. He's very informative, explains everything to me, and is always on time. We had a broken light fixture the last time. I would give him an A grade.”

Review by
02/16/2016

“They were on time and did what they needed to do. It was not bad. I think we just had a couple of outlets that were not working. I would rate them an A.”
