“I was not very happy with the service. I felt as though he had really taken advantage of the situation. I just overall wasn't very happy. Suddenly for whatever reason, I was doing a little bit of work around the house. My high hats in my family stopped working and couldn't figure out what it was. I had to make a couple of phone calls and he was able to come down to the house. He played like he had no idea what was going on and he was checking all of these different things.. He spent about ten minutes and then after that he turned around and said, 'I hit a reset button over here and it was fine,' and he had looked at that same spot where the reset was at least three or four times. I felt that he was taking advantage and he charged me $400 for it. Granted it was on a Saturday, but he literally did not take a tool out of his pocket or out of his tool bag. I just felt that that was way overpriced, and I would not use them again. I would give them a Z. If A was the best, I would go way below an F, which is the lowest and go to Z. He did come out on a Saturday. He did come out. He said he was going to be here within the timeframe that he said he would be here. He didn't do anything to get anything dirty. If he was a true expert, he would have found it the first time he looked at the circuit breaker, it was a GFCI switch. There was a weight on it that said it was off. I didn't realize that. He should have seen that right away.”

“I had some questions about the lighting after they were done and I really appreciated the follow-up. My lighting looked like some of them weren't coming on, but he was able to follow-up, gave some really good suggestions and directions, which we followed through and everything worked perfectly right after that. They came out, did that initial job, did an estimate, and then they came back out. It was great. I would use them again. I would give the overall experience an A+. Their customer service was really good. I wasn't there when they arrived. My husband was there. They did everything outside. That was fine. There were no issues outside at all. It was great. I feel like he answered the follow-up question appropriately.”

“They were very good. They were very professional, they did the good job at a fair price, they were on time—the whole bit, and they were good. They had to repair a main feed going into the house, new circuit boxes, grounding the wires stuff like that, it was fairly significant, I would grade them an A. They show up on time and they return phone calls and these things are important. They cleaned up.”

“I would recommend Bruder Electric to anybody. I think just because they said what they were going to do and they did - that resonated with me. They put in a new panel box, upgraded electrical box in my house. They also got rid of the old stuff that was there and they also checked on all the other connections in my house, which I appreciated. I would say A+.”

“The man who came out did good work. I had nothing against them. It was great. He put a four-way plug in my bedroom and fixed the bathroom switch. I would give the overall experience an A+. I've got nothing against it. They all work. I'd recommend them if somebody needs something. I've got nothing against them.”

“Nothing in particular. They put a GFCI in and they changed the wiring and put a new fixture in, and it was tricky because it's an old house and the wiring was put in back in the 50s. I would grade them an A+. I had no complaints, they were fine.”

“They had very personalized service. We were given a lot of options. Everything was very well explained. He took his time diagnosing what was going on and giving us the options and pricing. It was a very positive experience. I'd give them an A+.”

“It took a little bit longer than I expected and it was more expensive than I expected. Just putting in some new outside lines and that was basically it and fixed a light on the inside also. I would grade them a C+.”

Review by

“I liked that they stuck to their estimate and they did the work. They had to diagnose a problem and then repair an electrical switch. I'd say they're an A. He was a little late if I remember correctly. They were late and didn't even call us to let us know.”

Review by

“The friendliness, the honesty, I liked everything about them. We had them out a couple of times earlier, they put in some new light fixtures— stuff like that. We had them put in a whole house surge protector recently. I would grade them an A+. They were very knowledgeable. I would recommend them.”

“Rick Bruder comes over himself, takes special interest in the project, and has extremely high standards. He's very picky and I like that. The latest one was replacing the GFCI and a couple of outlets. But in the past, they've installed a generator for me and have done some good work. I'd say they're an A-. The only thing about Rick is that he's a small company and sometimes because of that, he can't handle emergency matters immediately. He'll always call to find out what's wrong and if he thinks it's safe to let it ride, for example, servicing the generator, he'll let you know. If he can't handle it, which has happened once in a while, he'll tell you that too. The other thing is Rick is kind of at the high end of the scale in terms of cost.”

“I had an old stove that was hardwired into my electrical box in the basement, and we had got an updated stove, so they had to do that. And then we had an over-the-range microwave, and so they had to make an electrical outlet there as well. They came in. They knew what they were talking about. They explained it, and they did it and left. I'd say they’re an A.”

“It was a very good experience. They installed a ceiling fan, and they also did something with our circuit box. I liked their prompt service. The gentleman that came out was very personable and helpful. I'd give them an A.”

Review by

“They did an electrical panel. They just took care of it right away. The gentleman who did it was very nice and friendly and cleaned up after himself. I'd give them a B+. I am very likely to recommend them.”

Review by

“They were here trying to find out where an outage was. The gentleman who was here was very nice and pleasant, and he was here for quite a while trying to figure it out. I'd give them an A+.”

Review by

“I was having problems with the wiring in quite a number of places in my house, so it was mostly all wiring work that they did. They were just professional, and I thought it was a fair price, and the technician was very nice. I'd give them an A+. No complaints.”

Review by

“They put a fan in the roof and did a new electrical box. There was something else that they did; grounded it and all that. They were very nice. They were neat. They were clean. I'd give them an A+, because when I called, they came right away. I would definitely recommend them again.”

Review by

“They were working on our generator. They just seemed like good dudes; they seemed alright. We were happy. I'd give them an A. I won't know about the quality of the work until my generator kicks in. Their customer service was good, too.”

Review by
02/23/2017

“They were replacing receptacles and putting receptacles outside. I believe that's what it was. They were very nice. The gentleman was very nice when he was here. I have no complaints at all. I would go with B I guess. I never found anything wrong with it. The customer service was good. There was nothing they fell short of or could improve.”

Review by
02/23/2017

“They've done several jobs for us. I had a great experience. One was faulty wiring maintenance that encompassed the whole entire house. The other one was, I own rental properties, and one of the properties also had preventative maintenance, and they've come in hanging porch lights. Those were the two major ones. The workers that they always send come. He's nice, knowledgeable, neat, and he cleans in the area. The office staff is wonderful. It's a good, well-rounded company, and even the owner is wonderful. I'd give them an A+. I have no complaints.”

Review by
02/23/2017

“They serviced our generator, and it was like $5, so that wasn't good, but the service was OK. The guy kind of explained things, but we let him do his thing. The generator's outside. I'd probably give them a B. The quality of work was fine. The customer service was good. Everything but the price. I don't remember punctuality. Cleanliness was fine. Expertise was fine. I have recommended them; somebody wanted a generator and I did recommend them.”

“Four years ago they replaced the box for the electric meter outside. It was outside work. They were very to the point and very thorough. They did a good job, and it was a pretty expensive job with the lines coming in from outside and all that to the junction box, but I think it took them like a day and a half and it worked out. It was like four years ago and there hasn't been an ounce of problems with that, so it's holding. I'd give them an A+. The people were good. The quality was good. There was nothing negative about it. I would say they did a very good job. I'd recommend them. I'd use them again myself and I would recommend them to anybody who needed similar work or electrical work of any kind.”

“Two years ago they were working on my kitchen. Their tech did an awesome job, and they put a fan in. I'd give them an A+. I had no problems. I would always call them back.”

“They had to replace a light switch. The gentleman was thorough and friendly and gave some advice. It was just very nice. I'd give them an A.”

Review by

“I think they put in a ceiling fan and a chandelier, and then they fixed some circuits that I had messed up. I don't remember his name, but the guy who was there was very polite and got the job done quickly, and I haven't had any issues with any of the work that they did. The only thing I remember is, he gave me an estimate on a bunch of other things that I was considering doing, and he just told me that it was the best to do that, that way I didn't have to have them come out and give estimates, I could just call and tell them that I wanted to proceed on an estimate. I'd give them an A. I'm very likely to recommend them.”

Review by

“It was a positive experience, except for it being very very expensive, it's very expensive. We had a generator put in, a whole house generator, which was fine and they did a very workman like manor and everything was done to code and all that, but just to have it inspected once a year is $4. And we did not realize that. They're expensive, that's all I'm going to tell you, but very good. We can't complain about the job they did. I'd give them an A+ for quality of work. I would recommend them but I would tell them that they're expensive. I think Mr. Bruder does tell you when he comes out to your house and he gives you the estimate. I don't think he pulls any punches with how expensive he is. But we used him because he's local.”

“The person that we had to come out and do work for us, I remember this like it was yesterday. We had electrical work we needed in two parts. The one part was to install lamps in our backyard. So the lamps were purchased from the store in which they were recommended. So whatever the store, I cannot remember the name of the store, we went with their recommendation. So, two jobs, one to install lamps in our backyard and the second was to perform service so that our interior fans would work. We have like a fan in the living room area and dining room area and they both didn't work. So the person did an excellent job installing the outside lamps, but for the interior, they ran across so many challenges that we were perplexed about the number of challenges and with those challenges, he wasn't able to complete the interior job, but he was able to complete the exterior job. So it's like half and half. If someone were to ask me if I would recommend the company to do work to their homes, I wouldn't be that brutal. I would say if there's exterior work, requiring replacing lamps outside, yes, interior work, I would say get someone else, in respect to that. I do not remember the name of the service person, but respect to that person. I'll be fair, I'll say a B. We really needed the exterior done, so it was B. I'll say good. It's not excellent because they messed up on the inside. I'm likely to recommend them.”

“They fixed a problem with a dead electrical outlet. It seemed to be a really elusive problem, and they kept working on it. They were dedicated to figuring it out, and they were able to solve it. I'd give them an A. I'm very likely to recommend them.”

“I had no problem with Bruder Electric. They were fine. If I wasn't happy, I would've complained already. The quality of work and everything I would grade a B. My biggest issue, obviously, I thought it was a little more expensive than I anticipated, but that's alright. I had no problems. I'm very likely to recommend them.”

“They did some work in the basement. The fellow who came was decent. He explained what he was going to do, and he looked at our system and found the problem, fixed the problem, and looked around and said there were a couple of other things he could do within the service fee, so that was fine. They get an A. He was able to troubleshoot the problem, and the problem hasn't persisted. I'm very likely to recommend them.”

Review by
02/09/2017

“It was a follow-up. Their technician had put the light in sometime before. It was coming on during the day, but I was told that I did not get enough light back there sometime, and it would stay on during the day when it was cloudy. They were able to fix it. They did an excellent job. I would give them some more work. It was A quality. They were very punctual. He was able to answer any question I asked about it.”

“We use them all the time. They're very good. They're prompt, they're fair, their people are friendly, they're knowledgeable, they do what they say they're going to do, and they show up on time. I have nothing but good things to say about them. I think their prices are on the high side of the scale, but I use those kinds of services so infrequently, I'm really not in a position to evaluate it because I can tell you what gas costs, but I can't tell you what a new car costs because I haven't bought one in a number of years. They did the furnace, humidifier, and that kind of stuff. I'd give them an A across the board. They're great guys. Their customer service, it starts with that. The people that answer the phone are well trained, knowledgeable, and polite. They know just when to chit chat and when to get on with business. I'm very likely to recommend them.”

Review by
02/09/2017

“They've been here a couple times. The one time he came, he put in an added switch in the patio and I can't remember what else. The second time he put in a new panel box. They were very polite and they were neat and clean and friendly enough to be nice, but not overly friendly. I would do a B. There was a small issue, but it's not worth complaining about. It's certainly satisfactory. The house hasn't burned down. They were on time as far as I can remember and I had no problems with them at all. I would call them again. He didn't make any mistakes. I usually don't recommend people.”

“They helped with installing and hooking up the ceiling fans. When they came out it was during the day, and my wife was there, so I didn't really spend a lot of time with them, but she was positive about them being out there. I'd give them an A. I'm very likely to recommend them.”
