A selection of 444 homeowner reviews:
“Universal Home Experts was very courteous and professional, and they did a good job. They did electrical work, and the work was excellent. Without a doubt, I'd give them an A.”
“The electrician was extremely knowledgeable. He came out and knew exactly what was needed, ordered the part, and got the thing up and running. I'd give the overall experience an A+.”
“They worked on our power outlet. I was extremely satisfied with everything they've done. They're A across the board. I have already recommended them.”
“Universal was on time and super professional, and I always knew what they were doing. They did electrical work. I would give them an A, overall.”
“The electrician was helpful, honest, and efficient—A+.”
“They had excellent customer service. They did an electrical outlet installation. I'd give them an A overall.”
“They did the lights in the kitchen. I really liked him and it was great. I'd give them the highest score.”
“They did excellent work with no complaints. They did electrical work.”
“They did some electrical work for us. They were awesome. I think they were very professional, and well dressed. They did a quote for me for several large jobs. They kind of broke the quotes down individually, so I understood what each one of them would cost. Then I was able to choose what my budget would allow. They were very polite and very clean. I would say they get an A for the experience.”
“The particular person that came here was very friendly and very thorough. I couldn't say enough good things about him. He was very personable, and he knew what he was doing. I was totally pleased with the whole thing. He told me how to prevent what had happened from happening again. He went out of his way, so I was very pleased and I've never had to contact an electrical person before at all. So I feel like I know who to call next time I need that kind of help. I'd give them an A very definitely. I would recommend them in a heartbeat. If someone said, 'who would you call,' I'd say call Universal. It's what I'd tell 'em because occasionally you get asked that kind of question, 'Do you know anybody?', and I say, 'Sure.' As a matter of fact, while the guy was here, I went across the street to my neighbor, and she said, 'I did that and it was this same company that put mine in too.' They had the same service that I had been getting. I would recommend them to anybody. To be honest, I don't know about whoever their other people are. I'm sure they have more than one electrician that they send out, but the one that they sent to me was just outstanding. If they have that kind of employees working for them throughout their company they're in really good shape.”
“I'd give the experience an A+.”
“They showed up on time, got to the issues that I had, and they resolved the problem. We had a defective circuit on my pool wiring, and they rewired the ground fault and put in a new light over the garage when it failed. They also did a new ground fault line. I'd give them an A overall. It was all electrical work.”
“They did electrical work. I'd give them an A overall.”
“They were really nice guys. They fixed our lights pretty quickly and I would have them back for other repairs if we needed it. I'd give them an A overall.”

“I've already used them before, I liked them, and went back. They put in some electrical lines for me. They get an A from me. I'm very satisfied.”
“The only thing they did was put up a light. They were doing electrical work. I'd give them an A overall.”
“It was very good and very quick too. They fixed my light. It's very great. I didn't have any issues at all. It was quick and everything was done thoroughly.”
“They did a good job. He was pretty efficient; he explained what he was doing the whole time and felt comfortable with it. It was good. He put in an electrical box, a circuit for 240 volts. They deserve an A. We've already recommended them.”
“It was a positive experience.”

“They were on time, professional, and I think we're going to call them again for the maintenance on our central air service. They were pretty good. It was electrical work this past time. I would give them an A in all fairness. We're going to use them again ourselves.”
“Initially, it was to fix my garage door opener that wasn't working. After assessing that issue, they found more issues with electrical in the house. They gave me about three options to fix, understanding the costs. Their honesty and expertise made it a positive experience. Giving us a choice made us feel more comfortable with our decision and their sincerity.”
“They replaced my main electrical panel, service riser, and meter on the main house. They installed a whole-house surge protector on the main house and the garage apartment—positive experience.”
“Universal Home Experts installed three ceiling fans and a security light—positive experience because of the knowledgeable technician.”
“I had two lighting timers installed for outside lights. The tech was very friendly, and the equipment he installed exceeded my expectations.”
“Universal Home Experts installed lights and a switch for my new built-in residential bookcase. Very friendly, and completed the work in timely fashion.”
“We just got LED recessed lights, and we had some installed in our living room, kitchen, and formal living room. They were here for probably a day. They'd get an A.”
“We've used them multiple times for electrical work. They're very quick, and the electricians are all incredibly professional and very friendly. They have a lot of pride in what they do, and they do it right. They take their time and do things the way that they should be done. Overall, they just provide an excellent quality of work and excellent customer service. They rewired every circuit in our house and had to replace our panel. It was a very large scope of work, and they were here for four or five days doing it. We had a very intensive experience with them. All of the work was done on schedule, and we haven't had any issues with it since. I'd definitely give them an A.”
“Whatever they did, they did it well. I don't remember anything bad, and everybody was very nice. We had a lot of electrical work done last year, and then recently, we called them out for some plumbing. I'd give them an A.”
“Universal Home Experts was great. I liked that they were quick getting out there and that they were knowledgeable about what they were doing. We had some electrical work done because our house got struck by lightning. They did an A-worthy job.”
“My experience with them was great, and I meant to send them a letter to let them know. They were great. They were very nice, very cordial, and very informative. I was very pleased with both the electrician and plumbing group, and I would recommend them. If I need some more work done, I will call them back. I needed to take out my gas stove and put in an electric one, so they did the wiring for that. The ceiling fan in the living room would not work with the switch; I had to use the remote, and I didn't want that, so they fixed that. Then, they put up a ceiling fan, that I purchased, in the dining room. The plumber took out the gas water heater and put in an electric one. I'd give them an A. I was very pleased with them. I think it was Michael who also put in something on my breaker box that was some kind of surge protector.”
“Universal Home Experts did good work. They did it quickly, and that was what I wanted. They replaced the electrical heat panel.”
“Universal Home Experts replaced the circuit box. Both men were excellent workers—each knew exactly what to do, and they completed the work in the time period expected.”
“They replaced my breaker box and ran grounding wire for an oven and microwave combo. The electricians did a thorough test of our electrical system and explained each option in detail. Their work was thorough and completed in a timely manner.”
“Universal Home Experts diagnosed the problem when the electricity to our study failed. Then they did the work the same day and got the problem fixed before dark. They were fast and efficient.”
“Universal Home Experts completely replaced and upgraded my circuit breaker panel. The electricians arrived on time and worked quickly and professionally—no need for a callback.”
“Everything was wonderful. I liked pretty much everything about my experience with Universal Home Experts. The people I talked to on the phone were very helpful and very responsive, and the appointment got set up right away. Then, Ruben, the person who came out, went over everything that I wanted done. It had to do with yard lighting, and he was good. He gave me a couple of different options to consider, I talked to my wife, and we made the decision. We actually did it that same day, and two more people came out to help. It was an all-day job, but they got it done that day. They deserve an A+.”
