HOMEOWNER REVIEWS SELECTED FROM SURVEYS COLLECTED:

“They did what I contracted with them to do. They just came in and did an air conditioning job. I'd give them an A+. I thought it was great. They found a problem that I didn't even know I had, so I'd say it was very good.”

“I'd rate it excellent. If there was anything wrong, I would remember it.”

“They came in pretty quickly after we asked, and they finished the whole job in less than a day, and it was a pretty big job. It was very positive. Both of the people who came to the house were good people, so we had a good experience. We also recommended them to our neighbor who had some electrical issues herself, so they went and took care of her deal. It was a hot tub. They wired a hot tub for us, but they had to run the cable all the way from one side of the house to the other through the attic, so it was a pretty big job. I'd give them an A+.”

“He did the job, and he seems to have done the job well. What created the problem was not positive, but his work in helping to resolve the issue was. I found no problem with that. I bought a piece of property, and it wasn't disclosed that there was a problem with the air conditioner. I did my due diligence and found that she had been aware there was a problem with the air conditioner. She tried to just fudge over it to try and make the sale and stick the new owner with it. I found out about it. She didn't disclose it, and she was responsible, so she had to pay this person, and I accepted her choice of people to do the repair. I just wanted to make sure it was done on her dime, and it was done well. It was OK. I didn't have any problems with the work or the tradesmen.”

“I didn't have any issues with the electrical or the garage issue that they fixed. There were no issues afterward. No complaints at all. I would say no issues at all. Good work.”

“I don't remember specifically what type of work they did for me, but not remembering means that they did a good job. As far as I can remember, no complaints.”

“I think they did their jobs well from what I understand. We didn't have any issues. I think we had a breaker out, and they really couldn't find it. We have a separate box. They showed up on time, took care of business, left, and had it done right. I was happy with that. They get an A.”

“The only people that we've had do electrical work for us a year ago had to do with lights, and they did a very good job. We had some lights removed and installed, new lights installed. They were very easy to work with. They were on time. They got here when they said they would. They cleaned up after themselves, they explained what was going on, and they were good. I would give them an A.”

“Their service made it positive.”

“We had a ceiling fan installed, and that's the only recent electrical work we did. We were very satisfied with them. I would give them an A.”

“When I built my house they're the ones that the builder contracted with to do the electrical, alarm system, whatever. I haven't had any problems, and I still have my alarm system with them. I guess it's an A experience.”

“It was awesome—C & B Electric was great. I called because I had an alarm going off. They were able to come out the same day. That's the second time they've done that for me. The guy that installed it was very helpful, and the woman who answered the phone was awesome. I love that company. The whole company is great. Everything is definitely an A.”

“C & B Electrical did a great job. They replaced a light fixture in a bathroom and made some modifications to the fixture because of the bulbs that we used. I wanted to put in regular LED bulbs, and the guy figured out what needed to be done on the spot. He rigged it up, and it worked. I'd give them an A+.”

“They worked on some wiring at an older house. He was very prompt, on time, personable, easy to deal with, and did a great job. They earned an A+ on everything.”

“C & B installed a smoke detector, and they did a quality job. I'd give them an A+ across the board.”

“They were great, and he was a real nice guy. He was just very kind—A+.”

“They just installed smoke detectors for me. It's a good company. I appreciated their professionalism. I'd say A+ for them.”

“I had a bunch of outlets that were out. It was a really tricky process, but they figured it out and got my outlets working again. They were very prompt, very knowledgeable, and very determined to figure the problem out. I'd give them an A.”

“I had a lightbulb go out in the utility room. We hadn't used the utility room very much. We'd been here 10 years, but we never had a light bulb go out. I was going to go in and just replace the light bulb, but I couldn't, because the way that they had the bulb was deep inside the wall or ceiling. So I called C & B, because they were the ones who installed it. He did a great job. I'd give him an A. I would recommend them.”

“They put some LED lights in my living room. I would give them an A rating.”

“They showed up when they said they would. They ran some wire for a gas line outside the wall.”

“C & B are professional. They installed another capability for microwave service. I'd give them an A.”

“It was a completely positive experience.”

“They were fine.”

“They were able to come out in a good amount of time. They were polite and nice. They came out and put in a couple of electrical outlets in a room that we were remodeling. I'd rate them an A.”

“Everything is fine. They did it correctly. Clean and professional, all that good stuff. They did new electric service. I'd give them an A.”

“C & B Electric made it a positive experience.”

“I'd give them an A.”

“They are reliable. I would rate C & B an A.”

“They were very prompt. I needed some florescent lights to be repaired. He ended up switching them to LCD bulbs. I would rate them an A.”

“It was fine.”

“I like just the way they work and explain things. They worked with me, and they're very easy to work with. They're professional and on time—all of those things. I had a light fixture that needed to be changed out on a super high ceiling, so they came in and changed it out for me. I'd give them an A+.”

“I believe I had them put in fluorescent tubes. They were very helpful and very knowledgeable, and they did a good job. I'd give them an A+.”

“They're on time. They did exactly what they were supposed to do and did a good job. I think they were working on my breaker box. I chose them because I was familiar with them. They had worked for our company. I'd give C & B Electric an A+.”

“I liked their customer service and everything they've done. They did the whole house. They were chosen by the builder. They deserve an A+.”

“I didn't have anything I particularly liked about them, and I didn't have any complaints about them. Right when I moved in, I had a company install my Internet, and they disconnected my doorbell. C & B Electric came back and connected my doorbell for me. I'd give them an A+. They're the ones that installed the electrical work in my house, and their number was posted in my home, so I called it.”

“They were just repairing something. We had an outlet that wasn't working in the laundry room, and there's something else they did. The circuit breaker had flipped on in the upstairs bathroom, and it kind of blew out everything, so they had to redo that. That was a while ago. I'd give them an A+ rating.”

“They did what they said they were going to do. We had a remodel, so they did an external room and a kitchen area. I think I chose them through a contractor. They're an A.”

“I'm sure it was a positive experience. The builder was already contracting them out, and they just sent C & B over for the electrical work. We haven't really had any problems where we had to pick an electrical company. The builder had already worked with them, and they just kind of sent them over in case we had issues to correct. I don't recall a negative experience with them. I guess I'd give them an A..”

“They give prompt, friendly service. They checked an outlet out for me—it was having a problem. I chose them because they're the guys that wired my house. I'd give them an A grade. They were good.”

“They did our house. It's been good so far. They did electricity for our house. I didn't have any direct experience with them; the contractor chose them for me. It's been good. I'd say they're an A.”

“I believe they just replaced a breaker in the breaker box. I don't think I was there for that—my fiance would've been at the house, but it hasn't acted up since, so that's a positive. I wasn't there, so I can't really recall anything. Our realtor at the time helped us do that, so I didn't really participate in that either. They came out under short notice, which was a good thing because we needed it done quickly, and I think they were the only ones able to do so, so that was a good thing. Since I didn't have any issues, I'd just say they're an A.”

“He was really nice and did everything quickly. They installed some new lights. It was for a rental that I owned—it wasn't for my personal home. He did a great job. He was very courteous. Once again, they were just very nice. It's been a while since I've had anyone out here. I'd definitely give them an A; no complaints—very good work.”

“C & B Electric did the work that was requested, and they were nice, courteous, and professional. They installed some exterior lighting and a doorbell for me, and then I asked for some information on some other things that I may have done in the future. Their company earned an A.”

“They were very prompt and efficient. They put in a new electrical box. I chose them because they were recommended by a friend. I'd probably say they're an A-.”

“I liked the fact that he was telling me something about an outlet in the kitchen next to the sink, where there was water. I had that outlet worked on—the aluminum replaced with copper. The people who'd done that didn't fix it right. They didn't finish it out like they were supposed to because it was electrical—it was right next to the water line. I was really very satisfied with the way he fixed everything. He made sure everything was done properly. I really appreciate him, his knowledge, and that he knew how to do things right. This other company that I had out here previously tried to overcharge and get paid for things that he didn't do. That person left a lot of things undone and didn't do things right. I was very dissatisfied with that company, but it didn't have anything to do with C & B Electric. C & B was very satisfactory, and I would like to make an appointment for him to come back because I'm having problems with my ceiling light in the kitchen. It went out. I'd rate them an A, the top grade, because of his expertise, his knowledge, his advice, and just that he was able to fix things and knew what he was doing.”

“C & B was very responsive, and the technician who showed up to make the repair was very knowledgeable and very friendly. It was a great experience. I would definitely call them again. He fixed the dryer issue I had. They're definitely a ten—A+.”

“They are great. They are prompt and responsive, they do the work they promise, and they explain everything when they're done. They've done a variety of things. They moved some outlets, installed some new plugs, and changed some very high lightbulbs for us. They also took a look at some outlets outside that weren't working, and they got those to work. I'd give them an A.”

“The technicians were really great, and their scheduling department was really easy to work with. I had a couple of plugs that were located high up on the wall, and they moved them closer to the floor and then added an outlet in a closet. They get an A+.”

“I intend to use C & B Electric again. I'd certainly not give them less than an excellent grade—they get an A+.”

“I had them do some cam lights and a chandelier, and they were able to do it without adding any holes in the wall or anything. They were on time. I chose them after I saw them on the road in their truck. I'd give them an A+ for their excellent work.”

“I used them when we were selling our house. They replaced some panel switches for us, and they put in a junction box. I couldn't be more thrilled. They did a great job. They were easy to work with, they showed up on time, and it was great. They earned an A+ grade.”

“C & B installed ceiling fans and outdoor security lighting. I got everything done that I needed to have done, and the guy did exactly what we asked and gave us good advice on everything. I would give them an A+.”

“They hung a ceiling fan and changed out several lighting fixtures. The technician who came out was very easy to work with, and he made sure it was done right. He met my expectations. I'd give them an A+ rating.”

“They replaced an exhaust fan in one of my bathrooms. I also had a pot light in the living room, and when we tried to replace the light bulb in it, the unit would spin. I had them come in and fix that so it wouldn't spin, and I could put a light bulb back into it. Their technician was efficient. In fact, he asked me if I had anything else that could be finished in the time he was required to be at my house. They completed the work to my satisfaction, and I have no qualms about recommending them. C & B Electric is an A+ company.”

“They put in an outlet for an exterior motion sensor light. I was going to have some more work done, but they said that everything was already to code, that it was done better than how I asked them to do it, and that I shouldn't waste money trying to do something I didn't need. They get an A+ in my book.”

“C & B Electric installed a ceiling fan and helped with some other things; I think they did some safety code stuff. They were timely, professional, and courteous. I would give them A+ rating.”

“C & B did the wiring in my home. Everything works, so I have no complaints. I chose them because they were the company that the homebuilder used. They should get an A+.”

“They changed out some light switches at home. They came on time, and they got the job done. I think he was knowledgeable and thorough with the work. I'd grade them as an A+.”

“They showed up on time and fixed my problem; they repaired a ceiling fan. They did what they were supposed to do, and it was very nice. I would use them again. C & B Electric is A+.”

“C & B did great. Everything was fine. We didn't have any trouble, so I'd give them an A+ rating.”

“They came in and changed out the smoke alarms. One smoke alarm had kept buzzing and buzzing for no apparent reason, and he told us that we have to replace them every so many years. The guy was knowledgeable and very nice. He wore booties for our carpeting and everything, and it went very, very smoothly. They deserve an A+.”

“The gentleman that C & B Electric sent out was very nice and courteous, and he did his job very quickly and efficiently. I would give the company an A+.”

“I have no problem with C & B at all—they're a great company. I've known them for years, and I use them every chance I get. They should get an A+ grade.”

“Everything was really great. I liked that what was done was what I expected, and my questions were well answered. It was a good experience, overall. I'd give them an A.”

“They put in a secondary grounding rod. It seemed like a simple thing—they came one day, and they came back the next week and did it. They gave us an estimate and stuck to the estimate. They're an A.”

“C & B Electric did some work at our old house, and the experience was positive.”

“He took care of the problem efficiently and quickly, and they were very professional. They came on time and did everything, and we had absolutely no complaints. They did a great job. I would give them an A.”

“The technician from C & B was pleasant, and he fixed the things that needed to be fixed. I chose them because I think they were in the Best Pick Reports. I'd rate them as an A.”

“There was a switch being flipped, which was causing a problem, and he made sure it wouldn't do it again. He knew exactly what he was doing, and I think he actually went a little beyond what he had to do. I would give them an A.”

“C & B Electric answered our questions. We would give them an A grade.”

“We had an electrical issue with our stove. It ended up being something minor. The guy who came out was really nice and courteous, and he answered all of our questions. They deserve an A.”

“C & B Electric was wonderful. They installed a back porch light and checked the breaker on one of my switches out in the backyard—in, out, fixed, and gone. I'd give them an A+.”

“My experience with C & B was great. They replaced some pendant lighting, repaired some track lighting that wasn't functioning, and fixed a breaker box. The workman was friendly, courteous, and enjoyable. They deserve an A+ rating.”

“The guy who came out from C & B Electric was extremely knowledgeable. He knew his profession very well, and I appreciate having someone with experience coming out. They did some electrical outlet work for me—changed some switches and things—and fixed things that weren't done by the original people who built the house. I'm glad he did that and made my house safer. I would give them an A+ for what they did.”

“I built a new house. They contracted C & B Electric to do the full electrical work, but then I had them come back to move some lights for me. The quality of work was fantastic, the time frame was fast, and their cleanup was good. I've been using their services for a month. It was good work. I would give them an A+.”

“We had some ceiling fans and a light fixture installed by C & B Electric. Everything turned out well. Only one person came out, and he was awesome. We would give them an A+.”

“They did all the work I requested, and they did it very professionally. Everything was done as I wanted it to be done. Everything has held up fine—no problem. The technicians were excellent, polite, and knew what they were doing. I heard about them because they did work for the development that I live in. They finished the work within a reasonable amount of time. I would grade them an A+.”

“C & B Electric did some work for me. There were two guys on the last project. One was doing work in the garage and the hallway, and the other guy came to install a plug and fix a pantry light. I think one was low voltage and the other was high voltage. I'd give this company an A+.”

“They added an extra outlet for us. I ended up using them for my project because they were the electrical contractor that built the original house. That was my best bet to make sure somebody else didn't void the original contractor's warranty. I would use them again if the need arose. They get an A grade.”

“C & B Electric did some work for me in the past. It was a good experience. They've always done a good job. They've come to change some lights out for us and put in some ceiling fans—things like that. The quality of the work was excellent. The workers were good people. We enjoyed having them out. The work that they do is good. You don't mind having the people at your house when they come out. They're always courteous, and they wear booties on their shoes and on the ladders. They're careful with your house. I'd give them an A+ on service, and I'd give them an A overall.”

“They showed up on time and got the work done. They ran a 220 line for me. The quality of the work was good. I would use the company again, and I would give them an A+. They show up on time and get their work done.”

“It was a good experience with C & B Electric. Everything was good. They installed some outlets and some dimmers. I would give them an A+.”

“C & B Electric put in a backup generator. Everything's working well. They were courteous. I would rate them an A+.”

“I believe C & B Electric put in some light switches that were timed so that they'd go on when the sun went down and go off when the sun comes up. The quality of the work was good as far as I can tell—it's still working. I would use them again. I'd say they get an A+. They're responsive and on time—it was a good experience.”

“They were the people who put the electrical in the house when it was built. The experience was positive because they were friendly and courteous, and they did a good job. I had them install a paddle fan, take down a light, and put up a paddle fan on a 12-foot ceiling. This was my first time using them. If I have additional needs for other services in the future, I think I might use them. I would give them an A+.”

“I had a good experience with the C & B Electric guy. He was very nice, actually, and he did the job properly. They did the security system installation. The technician was knowledgeable. We had the security system already installed in our house when we built the house. They deserve an A+.”

“They hung ceiling fans for us back in October. They showed up on time, and the technician waited until I went to the hardware store to get some more fans. He just made it convenient. I'd give them an A+.”

“When we bought our home, C & B Electric did the electric work. We've only been there a year—so far, so good. There were no complaints, and the job was done well. I would give them an A+ grade. I would tell friends and neighbors that C & B will do what they say they'll do.”

“It's been a good experience with C & B Electric. They worked on both the interior and exterior of my home. They have done more than one project for me. They helped with the build of our house, and then they've done some repairs. They have worked hard to earn my repeat business. Their technicians are always friendly, and they come within the time frame that they set up. I'd rate them them an A+.”

“They installed ceiling fans. The guy came in, he put some booties on so he didn't dirty my floors, and he was very friendly. I've probably been using their services off and on for the last year. The time frame the work was finished in was fine, and the cleanup was very good. They get an A+.”

“I thought C & B Electric was very good. They did electrical work. I'd give them an A+.”

“C & B Electric did a good job. They did electric work throughout my whole house. I don't have any problems with them. I am using them because my security system and everything is through them. I would give them A+.”

“I was satisfied with their work. I was comfortable with the technicians' expertise and their quality of work. If the need arose, this is the company I'd use in the future. I'd grade them an A+.”

“I had a great experience—C & B Electric did a good job. They wired our house. This was my first time using them. Some friends of mine use them when building homes, and that's how I heard about them. I'd use them again for future work. They're an A+ company.”

“I think C & B Electric put in an electrical outlet in one of our houses. The technician cleaned up after himself, and we had no issues whatsoever. They were very good to work with. I would use them again. I give them an A+.”

“They installed some recessed lights and some outdoor lighting for me. That was my first time using them. I would use them again. They get an A+.”

“C & B Electric did some work for me. They came out and did what I had asked them to do, and it was fine—there wasn't any problem. I remember the incident because we had talked about some more electrical work—some plugs and stuff—that I was going to be hopefully adding in the future, but I don't remember what the technician did. It was a good job, and I was pleased with it. They're the contractors that actually wired the house when I built it. I would give them an A+.”

“It was a good experience because the guy came on time, did the work well, and everything worked. He was very polite, and he cleaned up after himself. Everything was good. They get an A+.”

“C & B Electric wired our entire house, and everything went fine. When I had an issue, they came back out and fixed it. They were very easy to work with. This was my first time using the company, and I'd use them again. I would give them an A+, and I would recommend them.”
