“I feel the company exceeded my expectations in terms of the speed of work and the quality of work.”

“I feel the company exceeded my expectations in terms of their professionalism. Also, when they didn't show up due to a death in the family, they gave me a discount and tried to compensate me for the scheduling issue. That was appreciated.”

“They were clean, efficient, came on time, and the price was right. They had a whole bunch of small little jobs they took care of for me. I'd give them an A+. I’d be very likely to recommend them.”

Review by

“They were awesome, Martella Electric. They came out, explained everything, did what they had to do, cleaned up, and left. They cleaned everything up and did good work. If I had to use them again, I would. I've used them twice already so I'd give them an A+. Both times they were awesome, so I got them back. I’d be very likely to recommend them. They know what they're doing and they're a local company. So, if I can support a local business that is doing well, I will.”

“The quality of work made it a positive experience. He installed overhead lights in my basement and fixed a two-way switch in my basement. That was the first time I've ever hired them. I'd give them a B. He was an experienced electrician.”

Review by

“They installed outlets in my garage and basement. The quality of the work was fine, but I think their price was way high. I would give them a B. I did have another issue with them. Customer service was good.”

“The appointment was very convenient, and they scheduled around my availability. They put an additional electrical box in my house for a new heating unit. Just one person had to come out. I'd give them an A.”

Review by

“They were on time and did the job pretty quickly. They installed an outside outlet just in the front. I would say it took them an hour or less. I would say A. It was a little expensive.”

Review by

“Everything was done in one day and the person was pleasant. They were making the kitchen wiring safe, and putting in a new line for the dishwasher. I'd give them an A. I already did refer them and they used them.”

Review by

“They did what I asked. Some of the things I asked for, they told me it wasn't necessary. I sold my home, so they put new switches in since they weren't up to code. It didn't take long. I'd give them an A overall.”

Review by

“They were good. They know what they're doing. Martella Electric installed a doorbell for us. They had come out multiple times for other work for us. We had a light that wasn't working and they fixed that. They redid our electrical panel. They cleaned it up. Everything is working good. I'd give them an A+.”

Review by

“We had a problem with a breaker that they took care of. While they were there, they fixed a light fixture for us and installed a whole house circuit breaker. It was all inside work. It was the first time I've used them. I'd give my guy an A. He was good and quick and took care of everything I needed.”

Review by
09/21/2017

“The technicians were neat, efficient, and asked questions. So, all around they were great and their work was excellent. They installed an electric wall charger for my car, and they installed a new circuit breaker panel in my house. I'd give them an A+.”

“They were very professional. They know to inspect the right place. Professional work was done. They installed a fuse panel. It was inside the home. There was something outside too, an electrical rod. I'd give them an A overall. I would recommend them.”

“The agent that came over was very nice. He came on time and was eager to tell me that he was bonded and drug tested. He had a uniform on and everything else was fine. He seemed to know his business very well. I think their prices are super-duper-duper high. So the quote we got for the business we were going to do, which was a pretty big piece of business, was at least double the price of anybody else we'd had. He did fix something while looking at the box that somebody else had done wrong, and he did fix those right on the spot pretty reasonably. The quality of the service is pretty good but for a large job, the prices were very high. I think that for older clientele, who really take a lot of solace in a uniformed guy, knowing they've been screened, background checked and have a pretty reliable, good service would probably be a very appealing thing. Generally speaking, the thing he did for me, he did very well. I just found their prices to be very high. We had our electrical box upgraded and we had some in the house. The person who upgraded our house had put in some breakers that had GFCI Circuit interrupters. He said, ‘You can't put those on a rod and tube line because there's no ground wire.’ So, he put them down on the box. When Martella was looking at the box, he said, ‘Hey you can't have these here. Specifically rod and tube wires, because they'll kick off all the time and are not safe. They can only be on those things.’ I said, ‘Well, that sucks because the guy had just put them in literally last week.’ He was like, ‘OK, if you want I can replace them with the proper circuits?’ He did it right then, went to his van, got the right ones and fixed it. I appreciated that he saw the problem, pointed it out, and fixed it. He seemed like a very nice, responsible, capable guy. The company seemed like they're trying to put out a quality product. I'd give them an A for the work. The work was done well. The only thing I had a problem with was the price. I probably won't recommend them because I know how expensive they are. Although, their quality I had no complaints about.”

“It just felt like they were family. I liked it because it was family oriented. Both of the technicians were absolutely great. Some people come in your house and are always rushing, but they came in and made themselves comfortable. They did what they had to do, and weren’t rushing because it was getting late. It was awesome. They had to pull a wire through and I told them that I don't want wires sticking out and they fished it through. They did a great job. They upgraded my electric. I had a 100AFI and went up to a 150. It'd be an A+. The quality of work was outstanding. They did the highest of all levels. These people were amazing and excellent. They cleaned up. I have a cleaning service and I told them, ‘Don't worry about it, I'll take care of it.’ They said ‘No, we have to clean up,’ and they cleaned up! They weren't like your average person that cleans up, they did an excellent job. I would be likely to recommend them to anybody who needs electric. I found out at the end that I had a family member at the company, so it felt even better.”

Review by
09/21/2017

“They were absolutely great! The fellows came on time and were able to repair a number of things I asked them to do, in fact, all of the things. They were diverse. They didn't have to send someone back to get something. They had everything in their truck. He explained everything and it was all done. It was kind of big—lights outside, motion sensor lights. I would use them again anytime. They did inside as well—electrical outlets, checked them to make sure they were safe, and repaired the ones that needed it. The overhanging fan needed to be reconnected to the ceiling to be safe. It was the kitchen, dining room, front door outside sensor, and the back door outside sensor. They were A+. I would call them back in a flash.”

“They were very good. He explained everything before he got going, and gave me prices before he got going. They put on socks so they don't get your house all messy, all that I appreciated. They put in new lighting for us and they also put in dimmers in just one room. I'd give them an A, totally. I had a little bit of sticker shock, but I might be totally out of my realm here. I don't really do this often so I don't know what I should pay. So, I was just surprised about the price, but they were awesome. Their service was great, and I would use them again.”

Review by
09/21/2017

“They're a family run business. They were upfront about costs, explained everything in detail, and were able to perform the work right away. They were responsive to my call and everything you'd want in a contractor. They had to fix some broken circuits on the circuit breaker, and disconnect wires. It was nothing major, just random electrical projects. They also installed a motion light outside the house. They get an A. As far as I can tell, it was perfect. I've already recommended them.”

Review by
09/21/2017

“It's very expensive. We had a light in the living room installed, which the electricity had to be added to. Then we had a ceiling fan installed in places where we just had a light. Then we had a bathroom ventilation fan replaced. It was fine. For the light in the living room, they had to make holes in the ceiling in order to get the wires through. They didn't do that great a job at spackling to repair those holes. I wouldn't expect them necessarily to paint, but we would still have to spackle and paint. It’s kind of a lot to do on a ceiling when they're already spackling. It was just a poor job. I didn't contact them about it. I'd give them a B. The person who was here to work for us was good. I mean they weren't on time, but they waived the fee they charge you when they send somebody out because the person was an hour late. I can only speak to the one time they were here, but they were late outside of the four-hour window. Then they were here for several hours. I ended up not being able to go into work because I was supposed to come in for a half day. They ended up not even showing up during the window I stayed home for. So, I had to call out so I could stay home.”

“I could not be more pleased with the work that was performed. I have used Martella Electric a few times and each time I am equally happy with the quality of the work. Each technician I have had has been professional, punctual, and personable. I have recommended them to family and friends and would not hesitate to use them again.”

Review by

“Disappointed for a couple reasons. First the electrician seemed irritated about parking in city as if it were my responsibility. Next, my brother(a former electrician) had to tell electrician how to solve wiring a fixture after they said it couldn't be done that way. Also they left before all work I requested was completed and refused to stay after 3 pm to complete. I expected a full day. The electrician did his job but not as nice and pleasant as the electrician I had previously from that company. Last, when I called to share my experience no one from management followed up with me.”

“The gentleman that came—I think his name was Mark—I sent him a satisfaction card. He did a nice job. He seemed to know what he was doing, was very polite, and took care of what I needed done. It was a dimmer switch, and I needed a new switch up in the combination ceiling fan. They're definitely an A+—they were fine. I was very pleased. I would have them again.”

Review by

“We used Martella Electric to do some work when we sold our last house. They replaced a couple of double tapped circuits and a couple of old wires to the circuit box. We were selling our house, so the buyer wanted to clean it up. They tucked a bunch of wires into the rafters of the basement and all that stuff. I think they were referred to us—maybe by our realtor. I'd rate them as excellent; I had no complaints.”

Review by
04/20/2015

“I believe he was right on time and very helpful, spent a lot of time explaining things to me. He was very courteous and helpful, and thorough—seemed to be. This was a problem with rewiring for a new electric range. The existing conditions didn't work, and he fixed that for us basically. He installed a wall box for us for a wire that was just kind of poking through the floor before. I'd give them an A.”

Review by
04/20/2015

“They did exactly what I asked for. They did it efficiently, it was on time, and all in all it was a very good job. They had to find a shorted out circuit in a basement and an outdoor line. They were able to find it, fix it, and replace what needed to be replaced. They got it all done in the same day, which is really interesting. I would give them an A.”

Review by

“Martella Electric has done work for us. They were very knowledgeable and respectful of our home, they were on time, and they were extremely helpful. They just went over and above. They were actually here twice; they installed a range, and then they came back and installed a new electric panel. I'd recommend them to anybody because they’re A+.”

Review by

“Martella Electric did some work on my church, and they did a real nice job. We had a very narrow time frame to get this job done, and they were more than willing to accommodate that. They did what they said they were going to do, and they did it on our schedule. They had the right idea. We kind of knew what we needed to have done, and we didn't tell them, but they confirmed that while we were there. It made us feel very good about the whole thing. They had to run a new supply for some outlets. We had a problem inside our cinder block walls with some conduits that were in there, so Martella Electric put in some new circuits to replace that old wiring. It really worked out very well. They get an A.”

Review by

“They were on time, they did a great job, they installed perfectly whatever they had to do, and I'm satisfied. They have installed the remote control for my fence, and they also installed all of the fans for me. I would give them an A+.”

“They were prompt, did good work, clean work, and everything else. They put a new service in for me, plus some new receptacles at the kitchen sink. I got them in a local booklet that came around, and I knew that they were fairly local to me. I'd give them an A.”

Review by

“The guy that came out and did the work for us knew what he was doing. He was informative, he was clean, and he fixed the problem. He actually fixed a light that wasn't working correctly and a ceiling fan. I know the company through a group I’m in, and I’d definitely recommend them to friends and family myself. I'll give them an A.”

“They were just here when they said they were and they were very clean and they did the job that they were supposed to do. I had like three or four different things that they did. They installed a fan. They did some electrical outlet work and things like that. Let's just give them an A grade.”

“Martella Electric was very good at explaining what they were going to do before they did it. They had to come out and check a short that was in the wiring in my son’s bedroom. They were very neat and tidy—they didn't make a mess. I'd recommend them—A.”

“The people from Martella Electric were nice, and they did a good job. They were just good. We had some electrical work done and a generator installed, and I’d definitely recommend them to anyone else looking for that kind of work. I'd give them an A.”

Review by
04/20/2015

“I had a very bad experience. He didn't do everything he was supposed to do. He put stuff up on the ceilings before we even fixed them. For the fixtures, you're supposed to buy code-approved boxes, but he just ran a wire and stuck a fixture up. He did it on some of them; he didn't on others. So no, I didn't care for them at all. My cousin got them because they did some work at their house, which at their house, he did some proper work. On my three-story house I'm renovating, they did really lousy work. They tore walls out. Instead of cutting lines, he just tore plaster out and cost me a shitload of money to fix. He did a lot of stuff. I'm not even going to get into it, it'll get me wound up. As a matter of fact, we told him he was done and got him out of there before he was even done. The price was cheap, and we got what we paid for. Everybody else's prices were more expensive; he was less expensive, and he did a lousy, horrible job. I don't ever want to see them again, that's good.”

“Martella Electric did work for me. It was a little expensive. They were very thorough and concerned about safety and things like that. Also the electrician was very competent. I thought they were a little expensive but I guess that's par for the course. I'd have them back again. I feel confident in them. They did what they were supposed to do. They repaired a ceiling fan for me and replaced a couple outlets and did an ITF or IGA– when you have water you have to have a special outlet near the water. In the kitchen, where your sink is, if you have an outlet close to that you have to have a special IGA or IGF or something like that. It's a special outlet for when you're around water. There's a shut-off safety procedure connected with the outlet so that's good. The company was just recommended from a retired electrician that used to do work for me. I'd give them an A.”

“Martella Electric showed up on time. The electrician that came to do the work was friendly and explained everything he was going to do. They did it right—everything they did worked the way it was supposed to—and they didn't leave a mess when they left. Overall, it was a very good experience. I needed to hang ceiling fans in a room, and they put the fixtures in where I could install the ceiling fan where there had been no light fixtures or anything before. They put two of those in and rewired a basement lighting system that was old and not working the way it should have been. I didn't have to call them back after the work was done—they came in once, and it was done. That was that. I'd give them an A.”

Review by

“That was a long time ago. Martella Electric were knowledgeable and friendly. They completed the work in an appropriate period of time and the cost was probably average, what one would expect. They did some rewiring of an electrical outlet. The customer service was fine. I never had to call them back for any issues after the work was done. Give them an A.”

Review by

“Martella Electric was prompt, reasonable in cost, and professional. We had a fire, so they removed some faulty wiring from a garage panel box. They were able to do some troubleshooting, and they were pretty successful with that. I first heard of them through a referral. If a friend or neighbor asked me about them, I'd say they're a very reputable company. They deserve an A+ for sure.”

“Martella Electric showed up when they said they would show up, and the price was what they said it would be. They did electrical work.

“I liked that Martella Electric were the low bid. They installed lights for me just in the kitchen. Their customer service was fine. I never had any issues I had to call them back for. If a friend or neighbor asked about the company I'd say they were fine. I guess they deserve about a B.”

“Martella Electric gave me a good quote. They came on time and finished quickly. It was Christmas time, and they replaced two outside electric outlets for my home. I did not have to call them back for anything. I would absolutely recommend them. I would definitely give them an A.”

“Martella Electric did an A+ job rewiring my sockets and lightbulbs. The guy came and told us what needed to be done, and at the time, we declined what he recommended, but he made things work. He was a professional guy, he did a good job, and then everything was fine.”
