“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
09/25/2017

“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.”

Review by

“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.”

Review by

“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
09/21/2017

“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
09/21/2017

“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
09/21/2017

“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
09/21/2017

“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+.”

Review by

“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.”

“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

“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.”
