“It didn't get fixed so it took a lot of back-and-forth. We had an issue with the lights not working, and they said it was the dimmer and we had to replace the dimmer a couple of times. It ended up not being the dimmer and we had to call another electrician. The dimmer was not the problem. I'd give a C overall.”

“I didn't complain. I'd have to look back through what happened. If I used them, and I didn't report anything wrong. It might have been a ceiling fan installation. They did a great job. I'd give them an A.”

“They just got the job done when I wanted. I don't remember exactly what the job was. I think they hung up lines for me to hang my TV. It worked out good. I'd give them an A overall.”

“No particular reason. The electric work was for my outlets. Everything is working up to my expectations. I would grade the overall experience with a B. I would highly recommend them.”

“Kolb Electric’s promptness and ability to fix the problem made it outstanding. They did electric work. I'd give them the highest rating. I assume everything was fine.”

“It was done in no time. It was something really simple that we needed done. They just put in another socket. I'd give them an A grade overall.”

“They did a great job. They fixed the outside light and they fixed the inside light. Everything is great. I'd give them an A on everything.”

“We had a ceiling fan installed a while back. Everything's fine. Customer service was fine. Everything was fine. We were satisfied with the work. I'd give them an A. We would recommend them.”

“I wasn't actually there when they did the work. My husband was. This was quite a while ago. I can't recall what they came in for. I can't remember. I would recommend them, and I did have a positive experience.”

“It was a decent experience. They had to leave and come back and I got charged with it. I got the job done. It just took longer than expected. They were just putting in a line. Everything is working fine now. I'd give them a C grade overall.”

“Any experience I've had with electrical workers has been a positive one. I never had any problems. I don't remember the specifics of what they did, but it was fine. I'd give them an A. I would be very likely to recommend them.”

“The fellow they sent was very nice. He was pretty neat in doing his work. He put in some pot lights and had to cut several holes in the ceiling and he was pretty neat, where the droppings fell. He cleaned up after himself. He was just generally a very admirable guy. I'd give them an A overall, absolutely. I have no complaints about the quality of work and customer service at all; everything looks good.”

“Kolb Electric was very professional. They were very knowledgeable on the subject. I added a bathroom in my basement and they did the lighting. They did the wiring to my bath fan and did the circuiting for it, and it had a light with it as well. And then they added an optional receptacle. Everything is working up to my standards. I would give them an A rating overall. I would definitely recommend them.”

Review by

“They showed up on time. They did the work. They cleaned up. They did a good job. We've used them twice. They were fine. The work they did was put in ceiling fans, connected them up and all through the attic and they also rewired some stuff in the kitchen where we were having a problem. They did a great job at the time. I would grade the overall experience with an A. I would highly recommend them.”

Review by

“They worked for me twice. They actually took care of my kitchen light that was not working and replaced it, and he was in and out and very businesslike. Everything is working up to my standards now. I'd give them an A rating overall because we used the company before when we moved, and they moved a wire for the chandelier, so that's why we stuck with them.”

“The electrician who came was nice, but he couldn't fix the problem. He did whatever he could, and I paid them, but the problem was not repaired. He couldn't diagnosis what the problem was, but he did come in and spend the time, so I paid them. They were nice. He was on time. He was appropriate. Everything. He just couldn't tell why the lights kept going off. The reason why I called them, I don't feel like they were able to do it. I'll give them a D. I didn't feel like he knew what he was doing. I would not recommend them. People call you to resolve their issues. My issue was not resolved, so I'm not going to recommend them.”

“They said they did what they did. I don't know whether they did it or not. All I know is they put a new panel and all that kind of stuff on. It's doing fine. I'd give them a B. I had a little problem at first, but then they took care of it. The guy that was supposed to come by and check, he didn't check when he was supposed to. Some guys compensate there. Other than that, I didn't have any problems. The problem with the people I had coming from there—the guy came, but he didn't knock on the door. I didn't know he had been out there. He never said anything. Don't come onto people's property and don't knock on the door.”

Review by

“He was polite. He was courteous and he got the job done. The neighbor and I share some kind of thing and it fell down and my neighbor wouldn't do anything. It came out of his house, but when it stuck to the wall it was both. Another company wouldn't do it so he reattached it and took down an antennae that fell from someone else's property onto mine and no one else would touch it. I'm satisfied, very much so. Their customer service was good, very good. I'd give them an A rating. They were all excellent. He came when he said and he did the job. I think I would go with them before another company. I'd recommend them.”

“They were the only ones that could put the light out, so, it was a big chandelier. It is still out so it's fine. No, I didn't appreciate the customer service. They took a long time. The estimated time they told me over the phone, it was almost double, actually. It was a big chandelier. I would grade the overall experience with a C, because it was too expensive and they almost doubled their time. I would probably recommend them.”

“The gentleman that came out was professional. He took his time. We had a problem with one of the fixtures, but he did as much as he could and explained what we had to do just to finish up the job. We had purchased a fixture and the covering was cracked, so he installed the electrical part and we just had to go back to the store and exchange the cover. Everything met my expectations and standards. Overall, I'd give them an A.”

“It was very good. They repaired some electrical outlets in the kitchen that did not work or were not working properly. A gentleman came and fixed it. He was very personable, and seemed to do a good and efficient job. I was pleased. I would grade them an A. There has been no problem with the outlets. The work in the kitchen left a mess, I offered myself to clean it up so it was not on him. He was willing to do it. I would be very likely to recommend them.”

Review by
07/21/2016

“I had a couple small electrical things that were done, swapping out a chandelier and repairing a couple of fixtures. For the most part, it was fine. The only remotely negative thing that was repaired did not work a week later. It was a pull chain on a light fixture because I was upstairs and it was down in the basement and it just didn't work. I would grade them a B. The work that was done was fine. I don't remember any issues with the cleanliness.”

Review by
07/21/2016

“The work they did was positive, the work that they should have done that they didn't do was negative. There was a thermostat that I needed installed and they installed it but it didn't work properly. So then, they told me that they really did install thermostats but that was my question before I asked them to do the work. The work that they did was actually B work with an issue. I would say, the work that they actually did was an A, but the issue is not an A. The work they did do was an A, but the work that they didn't do I can't grade. I would grade them a B+. I had to talk to too many people to get things resolved. I think they were very punctual. There was a little bit of clean up that I had to do after they finished but not much. For what they did, I would recommend them. For what they could do, I would recommend them. I wasn't unsatisfied with the guys, I was just unsatisfied with the work.”

Review by

“They've worked for me a couple of times. I believe it was installing some switch plates in the bedroom and dealing with some wiring for a ceiling fan. I would grade them an A. I thought the quality was good and timely. Their customer service was good. I liked the way I was able to answer questions.”

“One guy came, he put my light in, and he put a new socket in. I had them put a light up in my ceiling and the other guy came and changed my air conditioner plug for me. I would grade them both an A from me. I would recommend them. My sister told me to call them. They were very professional and polite.”

“They were fantastic. They installed a ceiling fan. They were fast, they needed very little guidance, I literally let them in the door and they completed the job. I would grade them an A.”

“They were doing wiring in our kitchen. We remodeled our kitchen and needed new, different outlets for refrigerator and stove. I think their estimates were correct, they came out, were on time and courteous. I would grade them an A.”

Review by
07/20/2016

“It was real good, the guy actually came twice. They put a new line in the garage and they fixed one of the circuit breakers, which was constantly being tripped, so they came out and fixed that. It was excellent work and I have already recommended someone.”

Review by

“I've used them multiple times and it's always been good. They helped us install the first generator and we had to run a new line for a fireplace. They did both of those jobs. They seem reputable and provide good service. I would grade them an A.”

Review by

“They were replacing a ceiling fan. The guy was very honest, he found a flaw in the way the original one was hung and he corrected that to us. He pointed it out and made sure that everything was stable in the ceiling. He did his job and didn't leave. He was very courteous. I would grade them an A+.”

Review by

“They did some electrical lighting work for me. They were the first company we called that were reviewed, nothing really special. I would grade them a B+. We had some issues getting a receipt from them at the end point. The electrician came did the work and was thorough, but at the end getting us a copy for our records.”

Review by
07/20/2016

“They had trouble with insulation and had to come out six or seven times. They were installing exterior lighting. All of the lights have not come on, for various reasons. I would grade them a C. The parts that they used were obviously not up to snuff. They were responsive it's just that they had to come out so many times and I had to take off work. They always came out when they said they would.”

Review by
07/20/2016

“We were fine, everything went well. I liked that they were on time, they did the work, and it was a reasonable price. I would grade them an A, I didn't have any real complaints. It's been a while since we had them, there were one or two issues, but it wasn't anything that was real bad. We would use them again, and we actually have used them again. We would recommend them and I have.”

Review by
07/20/2016

“We had a better experience with them than the other electric company. I got an estimate for another job, specifically siding, and the contractor wouldn't touch the wall because the insulation was off the power cables. It's been up since the house was built, which was about forty years ago, I think around 45 or 46. So that was to replace that cable, from the top of the cable on down into the house, which had to installed by a contractor and then has to be inspected by the power company. That's what we are waiting for now to get the word. They will come out again once they get the word from the power company, who takes off the old power cable, which will be disconnected and goes in a hole, they have to put in the ground. But everything was done fine, I would grade them an A+. I would recommend them to someone else.”

“They were coming to trouble shoot a light. I issued a complaint against them. I called them because I was having an issue with one of my lights, it wasn't a big issue I just happened to hear a buzz sound. I just wanted them to come and see what the problem was with the light. The guy failed to diagnose it was actually a defective fixture. He took it down striped wires and caused an electrical outlet in one third of my house. He tried to lie to his boss and say that the power off when he came. I just had an appraisal and he was ready to give me anything that I needed to prove that everything was working. He kept going from this place to that place trying to restore my electricity that he caused and he couldn't do it. And I said, 'I'll just call another electrician to come in and do the work.' In the meantime I called his supervisor and he was very condescending and very nasty, and backed up his employee. Saying, 'No I trust him,' even though the employee was lying on me and the manager was conscending as well. The next day a electrician came and I didn't have any electricity in one third of my house. This is how it was left, the light wasn't even working I had no outside light and the management was very very nasty. I filed with the Better Business Bureau and again told more lies. Management never once called me. A month after this, they never gave me an estimate. They sent me a bill for $57, no details no nothing.”

“I had a kitchen range relocation, same room but from wall to another, and I had a couple of outlets added. I had hotwire run above the range fan. I had routine stuff done. The work has always been professional. I don't see them cutting any corners or doing shabby work. Also, I would say the response time from my initial call. I have used Kolb three or four times, overall for the three or four times, I would grade them a B. A couple of their guys didn't seem happy to be there. Their quality of work was always right on, it was good. The man had to cut into the wall to run a new wire and he left the cinder block and debris in the floor. I thought, wait a minute, you caused the dirt and debris you should have cleaned it up. I didn't argue with them, I just cleaned it. The customer service is always great. I don't think I had to ever wait. I only know what I called and asked for, I can't go beyond that for their expertise.”

Review by
07/20/2016

“It started off frustrating, but I think they are a good electric company. I told Kolb Electric to come in and check my attic fan because it wasn't working properly. They took it out and I didn't hear from them for about four months because they said they had to replace it. I told them that they took it out and they had to check their records and pull records back four months. After several calls, I had to tell them that they had my fan, but it was four months later. Fortunately, it was over the wintertime and I didn't need it, but they put it in and apologized for dropping the ball. I would grade them a B.”

“When it rained, the electricity would go out on one side of the house. I had a guy come two years ago and he couldn't figure it out. Said it wasn't worth going to the wall. And then it happened again two years later. I called and the guy who came said that he knew old wires, it was complicated, but he figured it out. He said that the other guy wasn't bad, it's just that he doesn't know old systems. This guy was very good, that's the key, he knew what he was doing. It was good, it was complicated, the guy was on his way but he got pulled over. Because it was complicated. Setting up the schedule was bad, but the guy here was good. The punctuality was good. I would recommend Kolb. I need to call them to follow up so that he could finish up.”

Review by

“They put in an attic exhaust fan, I had a fan up there already but it died. It was probably more than 3 years old. They also installed a ceiling fan on my porch and there was one more thing they did. There was one thing that I wanted them to do, when they came out and looked at it, it's work under the deck. The deck is so close to the ground that they couldn't really see under it when the guy came out initially. It turned out once that when someone was able to take a look, it was going to take more work and they would need two people. So we postponed that for a little while. They did everything that they said they were going to do. I'm satisfied with them and they cleaned up well. I would grade them an A.”

Review by

“The experience I had them, I had a small job to change light fixtures in a stairwell that's very hard to access. They said they give free estimate, when I called dispatch, they said for a light fixture repair they normally come and do the work. And when the people came to do the work, they were not prepared to get to the height to do the work. And they did one of two fixtures and they botched the job. And I had to come behind them and fix it myself. We ended up negotiating for reduced fees for what they charged us and I plan on not using them again. I would grade them a D. Poor service, they did negotiate with us for the work they botched.”

“I'm a property manager, so I didn't deal with them personally, but they were very nice. They called me up every moment with a new update and told me exactly what was going on with the tenant's problem, and they were able to fix it. The tenant was happy, and that makes me happy. The power was out, and I tried fixing it. We couldn't find the answer, but the electrician was able to come in and get it fixed within five minutes. It was actually a quite embarrassing that I wasn't able to fix it, but he was able to fix it quickly. They were an A+. Luckily, I don't pay the bills, since I'm not the main boss, so I have no problem with how much they charged me, and they got it fixed, so I'll give them an A+.”

“They did some work a while back. The guy that came out was kind, and he worked pretty quickly, so it was good. It was really just being sure things were safe with that particular outlet after an electrical fire. It was an inspection to make sure it was safe to turn the breaker back on. I chose them because I'd seen their trucks around. They'd get a B from me. They felt a little like they were pushing another installation in terms of having an outlet with a higher wattage capacity. It seemed like he was pretty adamant about that. I don't know how their sales structure works or if they're commissioned.”

“They did fine. They did the job. They came out and were very reasonable and fixed all the different issues that needed to happen. I was selling my house, and the person who came in said they had complaints with a couple of things, and they came in and essentially said, 'No, we're not,' and fixed a few things that needed to be fixed. They were reasonable. I wasn't actually there during any of this, but they did the job, and it was reasonable. I just know of them, and it was recommended by the realtor; that's why I chose them. They'd get an A from me.”

“I did not have a positive experience. I asked him to come in to fix a plug which also connected to the one on the other side of the room. There's nothing wrong with the one on the other side of the one. But the one that he worked on, he worked on for about three hours. When he was finished, we found out that the one that really had nothing wrong with it no longer had a dimmer. It had a dimmer in it, which was very important to us. When he finished and left, I accidentally turned it on and there's no dimmer. I called them and I got a lot of nonsense out of the person I spoke to. So we are not going to even think about doing anything with Kolb again. It cost quite a bit of money for several hours he went back and forth between two of these switches as if he never saw one before. I mean, one switch is what we wanted him to fix and he worked on two of them and destroyed one of them, well, its capability. So we have no interest in Kolb anymore. I would grade the overall experience with a D. I am sorry I had that experience. He was a nice guy until I tried to find out what he was doing and he just said well, these are very complicated. Well, I didn't know it was so complicated, to make one that didn't work, work, and then get out of the house, but that didn't happen. I costed me quite a bit of money from the time that he was here and what he did and did not do. We are finished with Kolb, sorry to say, but that's it.”

“I would say it was a positive experience with the exception that the person who was running the cable wire through my attic drilled a hole into my bathroom, and there's still a little piece of drywall that's damaged. I let him know of this, and he said he'd fix it. He never came back and did it. The work itself was tremendous—he did a great job—with the exception that he put that drill through the drywall in my bathroom upstairs. They were fishwiring. They installed several coax cable outlets in my upstairs area of my residence. I think it was four all together; one in the living room, two in the guest bedroom upstairs, and one in my bedroom, and that was pretty much it. I'd honestly give them an A with the exception of the drywall, so I'd have to give them a B. They'd be a B-.”

“We had a technician come out for emergency service a while back, but there was nothing wrong with the house, and we couldn't figure out what was going on. It turned out that the problem was the main feed from the pole to the house, but there was no way he could have known that, because technically, you can't really touch that. He was very professional, he was prompt, and he gave a courtesy call before he showed up. He was honest and a really nice guy. My experience with them was amazing; the only problem was my bonehead decision to call them before I called the electric company. He also told me, after he looked through the house, to call the electric company—he suspected based on what was going on that it was either the meter or the main feed, and it ended up being the main feed. He put me in the right direction. He was prompt and top-notch from beginning to end—A+.”

“The bottom line is, they charged way too much money for the service that was performed. That's how I felt about it. They couldn't really do anything. They were able to get my heat running. A power surge took out part of my electricity, and when I called the electric company to report the power outage, they told me that I needed to call an electrician. This wdas all automated voices telling me what they needed to do. They charged me evening premium because it was 4:30. They said, 'Anything after 4:30 is considered evening, and it's a two-hour minimum, even if he's only there five minutes.' It was positive in that they sent someone out right away, but it was negative in the fact that when he got there, he said it was the electric company and I needed to try to call them back, 'But I'm going to see if I can rig something up to get your heat working for you.' So he did. It wasn't him, it was the company itself, who was outrageous on their service call, as far as I'm concerned. I would not use them again for anything unless I had to. I'd say they deserve an A for their service.”

“They came in, got the work done, and left—that was important to me. I live in a condo, and there was water damage from another unit. A lot of the damage was behind the walls, so my circuit breaker box got wet. He had to go in and do some work in there. Then, all of my smoke detectors, in particular the two closest to where the water came down, emitted a signal all the time. They just didn't stop, so he had to replace them. I'd give them an A.”

“Kolb Electric did work for me. We were remodeling the kitchen, and we needed some wires rerouted, so it was a pretty big job. It took all day. Rodney was very thorough and very professional. He knew what he was doing, and he spent as much time on the work as he could. He also found another electrical issue in the adjoining room that we didn't even know was a problem. He said, ‘This is a fire hazard, and I'm going to fix it right now.’ Rodney was great. I'd give him an A.”

“The electrician was very pleasant, and I didn't feel like I was being ripped off. He was up front and honest with me. I had tried to tackle the electrical issue myself, and he showed me what I did wrong and fixed it. It was very simple, so he was able to clarify all of the questions that I had. He was in and out; he was really professional. I'd go back to them again because of that service. I’d just gotten a circuit breaker in my breaker box, and the breaker I had wasn't the proper voltage, so he installed one with a higher voltage that could properly handle the bathroom fixtures. My choice to use them probably had a lot to do with their scheduling. I'd give them an A+.”

“There was a very quick turnaround. It was a quick installation service. It was a pretty quick, easy job, and it was very prompt. I had a three-way switch where one switch had to be rewired. I think I had used them before. I also had a ceiling fan that I was debating replacing the pull chain on, and the guy was very honest and said, ‘By the time I do that, you could just install a new fan.’ They were very honest about assessing the other issue as well. It was very good. They deserve an A.”

“They were excellent. Everything was perfect. I liked that the person that came to my home called me a few minutes before he arrived. He was very respectful, and everything was OK. I had a problem with the electrical system in my home, and he fixed it. I had no light on the main floor, so I called an electrician that I knew, and he gave me Kolb's number—that's how I found them. I would give them the highest grade—the best grade I could.”

“I've used Kolb Electric three or four times over this past winter, and it's always been a very positive experience. They came on time, they completed the work as asked, and they were very tidy. They installed some lighting for me, and they also moved some electrical outlets. My interior designer looked for someone who was local and who could do work in pretty short time, so that's how we picked them. I’d definitely give them an A.”

“Then it became negative because I had an emergency. The power went back out in the same situation and the way they conducted the business—it was very horrible. And then it was like a back-and-forward thing, and I would never use them ever again. The same situation of the power going out had reoccurred. I had to have someone else come out and fix it. I would grade the overall experience with a D.”

“They fixed a blown fixture that had turned off the electricity for that particular fixture. They went right to it and got it done. It was a lot of fun. I liked that they went right to it immediately, figured out what was wrong, and diagnosed it and fixed it up for me. I would give them an A, particularly the guy who showed up. He was a fun-loving character.”

“Kolb Electric’s work was all right. It was done very well, and I was happy with it. They had to put in an outlet. I used them before, too; I had a rental house, and they did something for me down there a long time ago. They did a good job both times. They're efficient, and they get it over with. I say it’s an A for them—they were very good.”

“They came to change my fire alarm. It was very easy to schedule, and the person taking the call was very efficient. It wasn't an emergency or life-threatening situation, but I needed someone right away, and they came within an hour. I would give them an A, definitely.”

“I liked that they came right out. I've used Kolb Electric before many times, so I've dealt with them for years. They're a good company—I like them, and I’ve had no problems with them. They came and replaced a fuse box that had burned up. It's an A-grade company.”

“Kolb Electric worked on the light in the foyer. It was quality work. They cleaned up after themselves. I'd recommend them to others. I found out about Kolb Electric when I looked up the people that did the electrical work when the house was built. The guy works for the people that did the original work. The technician was familiar with the house. I'd give them an A.”

“We called Kolb Electric for an emergency—they came out right away, and fixed what they had to fix. Everything was good. It was a problem with the panel box. They had to troubleshoot a couple things. They identified what the problem was. It was a piece of equipment related on the furnace. They narrowed it down for us. I'd give them an A.”

“I kept getting a bill that I owed money but I didn't. The quality of the work they did was very good. The service was about 50/50 because I didn't like getting a bill saying I owed money when I didn't. The company took care of it. I had used them before to put some lights in. I would recommend them. I heard about them because a friend of mine used them. They completed the work in a reasonable amount of time. The quality of work was very good.”

“The worker knew what he was doing and did the work in a manner that was pleasing to me. They did a light in the dining room, checked my back door outdoor light, and told me the type of battery I needed. He also replaced a light in the basement that was broken. I would use them again. I would give them an A.”

“They came when they said they would. They were able to work with the gas and electric company, because they had to come and inspect the work. They came to replace the electrical cable, which went down during an ice storm. In general, the work was well done. If I were to refer someone to them, I'd tell them about my experiences. I would give them an A.”

They completed the work in a reasonable amount of time, very reasonable amount of time. This is my first occasion of using the company. If I recommended them to a friend or relative, I would tell them they gave great service. I would grade them an A+”
