“Outstanding service each time. Lee was great.”
“High quality and professional service that you can trust.”
“Very professional, communicated very well before, during, and after their visit. Explained everything very well with recommendations and options.”
“We were so pleased with our experience from beginning to end with Mister Sparky. There have been no follow-up problems. Great job!”
“Great prompt service.”
“First time to use 'Sparky'. Exceeded my expectation in every way.”
“Outstanding service each time. Lee was great.”
“High quality and professional service that you can trust.”
“The electrician who came out was on time, courteous, knowledgeable and efficient. I scheduled a return trip to install a switch, and the performance was excellent, again.”
“I give Mister Sparky all excellent grades—A+.”
“Mister Sparky was very good, and it was a very positive experience. He was very friendly, and he did the job very proactively and in a timely manner—it was perfect. They did a couple of light installations as well as a couple of light switches. They get an A.”
“Everything's perfect.”
“They came out right away to solve our air conditioning problem after the electricity went out. He rewired the fuse box and got it up and running. They'd done some work for us before, and I'd had a good experience. I'd give him an A, easy.”
“I liked their professionalism. They were on time, and I was very pleased with the work they did. I just felt very comfortable with the whole situation. They replaced the entire electrical box outside my house because it wasn't up to code, and I didn't know that. They also replaced outlets in my garage I didn't know weren't up to code, and I had them replace a few other outlets and two switches in the hallway that weren't working properly. They were out several times. I dealt with two different technicians, who were both very professional and knew what they were doing. You could just tell by talking to them. I felt very comfortable in that I didn't feel like they were trying to sell me something I didn't need, so I was very pleased with the whole experience. As a matter of fact, the next time I need something done electrically, I'll be calling them. They were a recommendation from a very good friend who'd had had them out to install a light fixture in a kitchen area. I would definitely give them an A.”
“They did some electrical work for us, and I think they did fine. They were prompt, and they did what they said they were going to do. I'd rate them as an A.”
“I had a plug that didn't work, and Mister Sparky fixed the problem. They like to upsell, but their work was grade-A work.”
“They were on time, they were very professional, they dressed professionally, and they knew what they were doing. They did electrical work—light replacement. They were also very prompt. A neighbor recommended them to us. They deserve an A.”
“They were punctual, but better than that, they were very friendly. They discussed what was going on. We had a real nice relationship—no problems at all with them. There were two light fixtures we wanted changed. Then, they changed the ground wire for the house, and we also wanted to put some sort of protective device on the entire house. The guy did his job and explained what he was doing, and everything worked fine. We haven't had any problems, and it was about three to four months ago. I'd definitely give them an A. The technician was very nice.”
“They went through everything, checked everything out, and made any kind of changes they had to make right away. They were in and out—good and efficient. They changed all my outlets and switches. They happened to be the only ones that could come out when I needed them.”
“Mister Sparky did a good job.”
“Mister Sparky was satisfactory. They straightened up a lot of stuff that needed to be straightened up. I live in a house that was built in 1938, and we had just finished replacing some things so the house wouldn't burn down. After doing that, we had some further trouble, and that's when I called them in. The fella who came out stands out most to me. He was very clear about what he thought needed to be done, and he showed me through what he proposed. When it was said and done, I felt good about the work he had done, and we haven't really had trouble with the electrical in the house since then. They changed some things in the main circuit box, and then they reran some connectors and wires up through the attic, also. They earned an A.”
“Mister Sparky did what they came to do.”
“They were on time, they did the work, and I didn't have any trouble afterward. They did some work on my breaker box and replaced some breakers. I would recommend them.”
“They showed up when they were supposed to, they gave us an estimate, and they followed the estimate. They were here a lot longer than I think they expected, but they didn't charge us any more. They did a good job, and the electrician that was here was very good. They installed a fan, put in a new switch for the hot tub, and did some work on the electrical box in the backyard and a fire panel. I'd give them an A.”
“I have the same person come out each time, so he has a history of the work we've done. We have some things that we're going to do in the future. I like the continuity, and he's very personable. I even had a question later, and I just called him. He answered it over the phone, and we were good to go. The last thing he did was install a surge protector for the house.”
“They were efficient and on time. They're a good company. We've been using them a number of years now.”
“Mister Sparky did good.”
“They were responsive and got the job done quickly. They repaired a fault in a fuse box. They were friendly and helpful. They're an A.”
“They installed a piece of equipment, and I have recommended them.”
“Mister Sparky was great.”
“The customer service was all good. He knew what he was doing with communicating and covering all the bases, and he made sure things were done the right way. He actually caught a few safety issues, too, and he informed me of them. He put in a bunch of outdoor power plugs in various positions throughout the house and also looked at some stuff in our main breaker box.”
“Mister Sparky did electrical work, and they were real good. I'd even recommend them to friends, no problem.”
“They were very polite. They did what they said they were going to do, and they worked fast. We had all of the electrical in the house—all the plugs and fans—switched out, because some of it was proper and some of it wasn't. Then, the lines to the house and the electrical box had to be replaced, and we had motion detector lights put outside.”
“Mister Sparky gets an A grade.”
“We did some outside work, and we had to call up Mister Sparky to disconnect the box. It was coming loose from the head at the outside of the house, so they fixed that. They did a really good job. I would recommend them, and I'd give them an A—they're a really good company.”
“They did a good job. They were very clean, and they took care of business. They put up some lights around the home, and they did an A-level job.”
“They came when they said they were going to, and they did the job. They were replacing some switches, and this was the second or third time I've used them. I like the fact that they call before they come and tell you who the person is that's going to come out. They come looking like a professional. I'd grade them an A.”
“Mister Sparky does good work. I would recommend the company.”
“Everything got resolved, so that was the main thing I liked about them. The electrical problems that we had at the house were fixed, and that was all we wanted done. We'd had problems with the power and some of the electrical circuits in the house, and we got new smoke alarms as well. Everything was explained to us correctly, and it was easy to understand what was needed and what work was to be done. They have to get an A because we didn't have any problems with the service we got.”
“The people who work at Mister Sparky did a good job installing my new breaker box. They let you know they're coming and all that.”
“Mister Sparky was fine. They seemed to know what they were doing, and they were very professional in getting everything done that I asked them to. They put in some light fixtures and changed out some plugs from two prongs to three.”
“They were really professional. They told us exactly what we needed, and they gave us different options. They laid out everything and tiered it for us. They were bringing up the house to current electrical standards.”
“They did good work, and they were in and out. The price was agreed on ahead of time, and they were good. They installed backyard lights, and the customer service seemed OK. Overall, they deserve an A.”
“I liked the young man that did the service. There was a noise coming from my transformer box, and they fixed that. My home had just finished its two-year, new homeowner warranty, and he sent me an email that showed what it should've been. The builder had installed something wrong, and he told me what to say to them when I called them—to tell them they should be the ones to pay for it. I got my money back from the builder because of what he did for me.”
“Mister Sparky changed the electrical panel for us. The person who did the work was very professional and did really good work. Nothing has happened since then. I would give them an A+ because I don't have any complaints.”
“Mister Sparky is thorough and very good at explaining what needs to be done. The work is done well, so it lasts. Regardless of what electrician you have, they're all very, very informative and courteous, they clean up after themselves, and they're respectful of your belongings. I've used them for several years because I've continued to have such good service from them; I've been so pleased I've never looked for anyone else.”
“Mister Sparky did quite a bit of electrical work. They did the work on time and on budget, but the main positive factor was the guy who did the work—he was exceptional. They get an A.”
“He was brilliant. We had him come back to do a second job for us as well because he was brilliant. I asked a number of people for some recommendations, but nobody could come up with someone, so I took a chance on Mister Sparky. It looked like a company that had local opportunities, and I liked the work on their website, so I kind of went for it. In fact, I've now recommended Dennis to six people because he was brilliant. The whole setup was very impressive and professional, but the electrician who actually came was incredibly competent and very friendly. He was very caring in his approach to the job. They deserve an A+.”
“They installed an internal light fixture. He was on time—which is important—and he explained everything that needed to be done. He did the inspection where they go around and see if you have any other issues, and he explained it. He did an awesome job explaining everything. I'd give them an A+ grade.”
“Mister Sparky Electrical Services did a great job. They did everything they said they would do. I'd highly recommend them, and I would give them an A+ rating.”
“The technicians were wonderful. They were very friendly and very respectful, and they did a very good job. They exchanged a hanging lamp in my front room. I would recommend them. They were punctual, and they called beforehand, which I really appreciated. I would definitely give them an A+.”
“I was completely satisfied with Mister Sparky's work. The young man who does our work is excellent. I would grade them as an A.”
“I got my work done. I have a light in my closet, and they had to rework it to get it to work. He checked it out, reworked it, and now it's working fine. I chose them because I saw the truck and called to see what the price would be to do it. His work was excellent.”
“Mister Sparky installed some lights and upgraded the electrical system. I think their customer service is top-notch. I would give them an A.”
“The guy from Mister Sparky was on time, and he explained the stuff that needed to be done. I'd called them before. They get an A+.”
“They ended up installing some surge protectors. They were very professional, and they took care to not make any kind of mess. They were very transparent about what their pricing was going to be. They were on time, and the quality of their work was very good. They're an A+ company.”
“Mister Sparky Electrical Services did a good job. That was the second time I've used them. We knew about them because we had them work on the air conditioning units. I'd give them an A+ rating.”
“The person who came out and gave me a quote gave me some options. I was selling my home, and I was able to make a decision about what I wanted to do. They were on time, and they carried it out for the same price they said they were going to. It was all good. I'd give them an A+.”
“He was really good, and he explained everything that was going on. He even replaced my light bulbs, which he didn't have to do. It was good. He was courteous, and he went above and beyond. I'd rate them as an A+.”
“We had a couple of breakers in the main box go out, so they had to replace those. They were at the house late on a Saturday, within the hour. When they didn't finish the job, they came back and finished on Monday. I would give Mister Sparky an A+ grade.”
“I liked the courtesy and friendliness of the electrician. They were very helpful, and they were explicit in their explanation of everything they did. They did a good job, and they cleaned up when they left. They replaced the whole-house electrical panel in the garage and a whole-house surge protector. They also moved a light fixture and installed two ceiling fans. I chose them because I liked their commercials and their people. I would give them an A+.”
“I was very satisfied with their work. I liked their professionalism, and they were very tidy in their work. They explained the job that was to be done in great detail. They were cleanly dressed, well-groomed technicians, and everything was very much in good order. They showed up in a timely fashion. We installed surge protection for the entire home, and he also replaced the smoke alarms in four different places around the house. They made a small light switch repair, too. I think we found them in the Best Pick Reports, and they happened to be the first company we called. They're an A+.”
“I would give Mister Sparky Electrical Services an A+ grade.”
“Mister Sparky did some electrical work, and it was fine. They worked with a breaker. Everything went well, and I didn't have to call them back for any issues. I would rate them as an A+ because it's all good.”
“He did a great job. He came in, did exactly what we needed him to do, and then was gone. We were selling our house, and we had to have a neutral bar put in the electrical panel. I called Mister Sparky to do the work. I'd give them an A+.”
“It got done, and I didn't have to do it. Scheduling them and getting them out there was pretty good. I've had them out one or two times. This time, they fixed all the cords in my house. I would give them an A+.”
“They were prompt, they got the job done, and they were pleasant to deal with. I heard about them through my A/C people. I would give them an A+ grade.”
“They did some kind of electrical work. The guy was really nice. The second guy wasn't quite as nice, but they both knew what they were doing. They were knowledgeable. I'd give them an A.”
“I like that Mister Sparky sends the same guy every time. He's really nice, and they do a good job. They solve my problem every time I call.”
“It worked out well. They figured out ways to make improvements to my electrical wiring, and I think that makes my house work better. They unloaded some circuits that were overloaded and rerouted some of the wiring. I'm not much of an electrician, but at least we haven't had our air conditioning go out. I would grade them as an A.”
“Mister Sparky Electrical Services was very positive. I'd give them an A.”
“Mister Sparky fixed the problem. We had some loose connections in some outlets. We'd used the company before, which is why we chose them. I would give them an A grade.”
“I liked the attention of detail and the pleasant and cooperative attitude of the serviceman. I've had several repairs here at the house over the past year. An exterior light had been damaged during the ice storm when branches fell, so he secured a new one for me. I think I chose them because they were close. I would use them again, and I would give them an A.”
“The first time, they fixed my dishwasher, and I called them the second time because the dishwasher was making a weird sound. It actually didn't make the weird sound when he was here, so they didn't have to fix anything. He gave me advice; he said maybe there was some buildup in there, and he gave me some cleaner. They came pretty quickly. They deserve an A.”
“I liked scheduling the appointment; it was really easy. The technician was very friendly and very helpful, and he explained everything really well. He made himself available and was able to answer questions for me. It was a good experience for me, during and after. They did a couple of different things for me. They went through and kind of rewired my whole electric box, since I had a couple of outlets that weren't working, and they replaced all the GFCI outlets in my house. Then, they came back out, and I had them put in a whole-house surge protector. It's been a bunch of cleanup stuff. I'd give them an A.”
“We were satisfied. Mister Sparky fixed the problem. They had to rewire part of the house, and they actually had to ground the house. We had used them before when they were called something else. I would grade them as an A.”
“They were on time, quick, and to the point. They fixed some things. I had some issues with my A/C unit, a doorbell, and also a couple other items. I found them to be available 24 hours. The company I used the first year I purchased my house didn't want to do the work under the one-year warranty, so they ended up paying for it. I would give them an A rating.”
“Mister Sparky found and isolated an issue we had with the wire in our wall, and then they replaced it. I would recommend the company, and I would give them an A.”
“They arrived on time. They explained their work, explained the charges, and gave recommendations about the problems they were addressing. We were having problems with some electrical circuits. I would rate them as an A.”
“I've always gotten great service from them. They're always on time; they show up exactly when they say they will. They're neat and professional, they explain what they're doing and what needs to be done and why, and they're careful to clean their workspace. They pick up after themselves, and they're respectful of your time and of your house. They've earned an A.”
“Mister Sparky did a good job. I think there was quite a bit of electrical work to be done with light fixtures. He was very pleasant and very presentable, and he did it within the right time frame. I would give them an A.”
“I liked how the technician explained what he was doing and what he was finding as he went through. He came out because I was having issues because of a lightning strike. They were seeing what was wrong, what needs to be replaced, and stuff like that. I'd probably give them an A.”
“Mister Sparky Electrical Services did some work a few months ago, but I've used them three or four times. The last time, they solved the problem I had. I would give them an A.”
“They were very fast and efficient. I liked the worker who came very much, and I would have them back in my home to do other work. I would rate them as an A.”
“Mister Sparky was punctual. They arrived on time, and they did a thorough inspection and informed me of what they found. I would give them an A rating.”
“I don't have any complaints at all. The person who actually came was young and a new employee, I believe, but he did a good job, and I was confident in what he was telling me. I chose them because I was having problems with my air conditioner, and they are attached to the air conditioning company I was using. I would give them an A grade. If I had a complaint, I would have called somebody already, so I didn't have any complaints at all.”
“They called ahead with the arrival time, and they gave me an estimate up front of what it was going to cost. They did the work, and they were in and out of here in about 20 minutes. Mitch has been here before, and I would always give him an A because he is always very punctual, very courteous, and everything else. When I call, I generally try to ask for Mitch.”
“We called Mister Sparky out for some things that weren't working right when we moved into the house. I liked the technician; he was very competent, and he detailed and talked us through everything he was doing. He was thorough and made us feel comfortable. Everything has held up perfectly, and I would absolutely use them again. They deserve an A+.”
“They came out to install some floodlights, and they also installed electrical switches and inserted very high electrical bulbs. The technician was very friendly, cordial, honest, and direct. I would give them an A+.”
“Mister Sparky did some grounding work around my electrical box and ran a new cable to an outdoor light switch. The technician was outstanding. He did a good job, he was conscientious—all that good stuff. They're an A+.”
“I originally called them because I was having a problem with one of my switches. They came out, and I asked them while they were here if they would give me some estimates on some other stuff. They did, and then they completed the work on the same day. That was pretty amazing. The electrician was very professional, and he did a great job. I was having him do some lights upstairs, and he ended up making a trip back to their office twice to get what he needed to get it done. The switch on the garbage disposal was messed up, and so they came to fix that. There really wasn't any cleanup to do, but they did a great job. He was very professional from beginning to end. I would give them an A+.”
“The guy that came out from Mister Sparky was very outgoing, knowledgeable, and friendly. They installed a couple of lights. The quality of the work they did was top notch. I would use the company again. I would give them an A+.”
“They were very good. They fixed all my problems with my electrical box and also replaced the grounding wire. I would grade them the highest, A+. I'm very satisfied. The guys were very professional. I liked the whole experience from not only what they did, but also how they approached the whole thing.”
“Everything's fine. They replaced some switches, traced one electrical issue, and replaced two outside fixtures. They did not have to tear any walls up. The worker was great—really professional. The job took two days—one day was an hour or so troubleshooting and figuring out exactly what the problem was. I had to go get the new fixtures, and they came back the next day. It took him probably another hour or two from there. It was A+. Everything was perfect.”
“He was very thorough, and I appreciated that he actually evaluated most of the wiring in the house. The house is pretty new, but we just put in a pool, so he kind of showed me how everything works and educated me on that, and I appreciated that. They looked at our ceiling fan and some high hats in the bathroom. He was very informative and explained everything to us. Everything was fine. We would use them again. This was my first occasion using them. It was A+.”
“I had a triple positive experience. I wanted to have an outlet put in here that I could run a generator to power the house in case the power went down. I didn't even know the lingo. I knew what I ultimately wanted to do but when I called them, they showed up, said, 'OK we get it, where do you want the outlet,' and they came in and took care of it. They didn't make a mess, showed me how to use it, and left me some written instructions. They are good—I'll call them again forever. They were clean with jeans, boots, and dress shirts and incredibly professional. There's no downside to these fellows. I would give them an A+.”
“They were professional and quick. They seemed to know what they were doing, came in, fixed it, and took off. They had to fix the circuit breaker switch. This was my first time using them. I would use them again. They were respectful of their surroundings in my home and very professional. I give them an A+. They're good.”
“It was fantastic. They seemed like they knew what they were doing. They were right on it. They moved around some plug-ins for me. The homebuilder recommended them. I would give them an A+.”
“The guy was very good. I had negative grounds and he came in, found and fixed it, and was done. The quality of work was excellent. He did a good job. He was here for about an hour. This was my first time using them. He did a great job—A+.”
“Mister Sparky Electrical Services did a good job. I liked the way they handled everything, very professional. They did a fantastic job for us.”
