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
07/28/2017

“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

Review by
