A selection of 300 homeowner reviews:
“My experience with Winstar was fantastic. They installed a ceiling fan for me. They were on time, they cleaned up after themselves, and they did a great job. They get an A+.”
“Their quality of work was A+. Their customer service was great, and their expertise was really good. The tech had a lot of experience and knew what he was doing. He knew what was wrong right away and fixed it quickly.”
“I've used them multiple times, and they've always been on time. They've hung chandeliers, put in new junction boxes, and added some lights. They take care to lay cloth down and clean up after themselves. They're professional. I'd give them an A+.”
“Winstar did a great job. They changed out a couple of plugs and replaced a switch in my garage. They showed up on time, were courteous, and made sure to clean up. They're an A.”
“They did very good, so I'd give them a very high rating. They did electrical outlet work, and it was A+ work.”
“They were prompt and good communicators. They did what I asked and did a great job. They ran new electrical wiring to the garage for a higher amp capability. They're definitely an A.”
“He estimated the work to be done, and made clear the work that had to be done. For the last of the work, he showed me what he did, and I think it was working. I was moving from my house, so they tried to fix the problems they found during the inspection. He came and fixed those. The water pump hadn't been working for a while, so he replaced the pump. The microwave wasn't linked to the breaker, so he fixed that. I'll give them an A+.”
“They did heating and air conditioning and electrical work for me, and they worked on my water pump. They were very good, so everything is A+.”
“They came out, did a thorough assessment, and were very reasonable in their recommendations. They didn't recommend anything we didn't really need, so I thought it was an effective and smart solution. There were two different things they did for us. One had to do with a treadmill and the electric socket where it was going in that was shorting out. The other was adding an additional section to my panel, because I needed another gizmo in my panel. I'd give them an A+.”
“They did our living room lights. We got a quote, they came in, and they got it done pretty quickly. It was nice not to have our house torn up for multiple days. Another small thing was that they fixed an outlet outside that was not properly grounded. They earned an A+.”
