Review by

“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.”

Review by
08/09/2017

“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.”

Review by
08/09/2017

“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.”

Review by
07/28/2017

“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.”

Review by
07/28/2017

“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.”

Review by

“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.”

Review by
07/28/2017

“It was a good experience. I just remember they did a good job. It was overall electric work, just general stuff. It was positive.”

Review by
07/28/2017

“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.”

Review by
07/28/2017

“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.”

Review by
07/07/2017

“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.”

Review by
07/07/2017

“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.”

Review by
07/07/2017

“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.”

Review by
07/07/2017

“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
07/07/2017

“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
07/07/2017

“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.”

Review by
07/07/2017

“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.”

Review by
07/07/2017

“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.”

Review by
07/07/2017

“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
07/07/2017

“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.”

Review by
07/07/2017

“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.”

Review by
07/07/2017

“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.”

Review by
07/21/2016

“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

“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.”

Review by
07/21/2016

“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.”

Review by
07/21/2016

“I had them replace my electrical panel and install some outlets and some other general wiring. I would grade them an A. I've got no issues at all. They had to reschedule and then they were a little late.”

Review by
07/21/2016

“They are great. They did a circuit breaker, installed a line, and installed an outlet. I would grade them an A. I would be extremely likely to recommend them to others.”

Review by

“I had an attic fan that needed some work. It needed a new motor or whatever. I would grade them an A. Their customer service was fine. They showed up on time.”

Review by

“We had all our smoke detectors replaced. I would grade them an A. It was very good. Their quality of work was fine. They were timely when they came out.”

Review by

“They did electric work for me. I think the last time they were here they installed an attic fan. I would grade them an A+.”

“They replaced an exhaust fan. I would grade them a B.”

Review by
07/21/2016

“They helped with changing lights and installing new light switches. I would grade them an B.”

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
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.”

Review by
07/20/2016

“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
07/20/2016

“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
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

“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.”

Review by

“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

“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
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.”
