Reviews in Pittsburgh for Installing Lightning Protection Systems

Doran Electric
5.0
Hank came out and gave me a quote and wouldn't take any down payment. He scheduled everything including having the power company coming to pull the power and come back to inspect and reconnect the power. Hank and his 2 assistants came in and started to work... very fast and efficient. Since he was there he talked me into adding whole house lightning protection for $200 which comes with a warantee. They replaced everything from the wires coming in to the breaker box. One of the neatest electrical jobs I've seen. Total cost was $1500 plus the $200 for the lightning protection which was a very reasonable price... Definitely plan to have Hank and his crew back when I need additional electrical work.

This is the second job Renaissance has completed for us. Working with them is a no-brainer. Quick, professional, thorough, and transparent service will keep us coming back in the future. The lightning installation made our basement look like a new space!

We thought we needed a new breaker installed, but it turned out that there was simply a short-circuit in a plugged-in appliance and, once it was unplugged, our existing breaker could be reset. We also thought we needed a whole-house surge protector. But PJ (I think that was his name) discovered that we actually already had one installed in the circuit breaker box. (I didn't even notice it was there when we bought the house.) So in both cases, he was very honest in not performing unneeded work. That's something we really appreciate. We also had an improperly-wired light fixture in our attic that he noticed while investigating the short-circuit, and which he fixed while he was up there. He was on time, very polite, and very knowledgeable. I would definitely hire them again.

After a lightning storm, we blew a circuit and couldn't get it to work after flipping the breaker. I called CW Electric and Chris came out later that morning to evaluate the problem. He arrived on-time and was very friendly and professional. He quickly located the problem (a short circuit likely due to a lightning strike) and removed our dishwasher from the circuit so that the other outlet on the circuit would be functional. I asked him how I could prevent such a problem in the future and he recommened installing a whole-house surge protector. He returned at the appointed time the next work-day, and installed the surge protector in 15 minutes. He made sure I had all the paperwork I needed in order to fulfill the warranty on the product. He was punctual, professional, and friendly.

Hufnagel Electric
5.0
Hufnagel Electric was lightning fast in installing a 50 amp breaker in our panel and running electric to our garage to power an Electric Vehicle. We filled out the online form on the Hufnagel website on a Saturday, were contacted the very next day and they were at the house three days later to go over the project. We were then booked for two weeks later for the job. Simple. Easy. Professionally done & Covid-19 approved. Hufnagel uses electronic proposals and signatures for customer ease and accepts major credit cards, and even paper checks for those of us that still use them. We easily & highly recommend Hufnagel Electric to you for your projects.

They did a good job, but they left all the equipment that they removed behind in my garage. It was a lot of very heavy metal and I wasn't happy that I had to dispose of it myself. They didn't tell me that they were leaving it there. I also had them install a surge protector that would protect my appliances from a lightning strike. Ever since they installed this I have noticed that when my refrigerator kicks on my lights flicker very briefly.

Called Bob Pickur on a monday morning, he returned my call that very afternoon. I told him the problems we were having and he said he could come out the next day. Bob and his associate showed up on time, were very friendly and completed the work we needed in lightning fast time. I was totally blown away at the excellent service that we received. I say this because I had to call three other electricians and none returned my call. I guess they didn't need the work or did not care. I have dealt with many contractors over the years and I would hightly reccomend Bob Pickur.

It was an Angie's List Big Deal that I purchased. It was fine. I ended up purchasing 3 of them because I had 3 panels in the house. They did a good job. All 3 of them still has a green light saying that it's still active and functioning. They were fast but not as neat as I would like because they cut into the wall board in the upstairs place and just kinda left a mess but I think that's the way they work. There was some miscommunication. I originally did not get an e-mail from them and I finally contacted them and we got it all together and they came out and performed the service. They were efficient and had everything they needed. They knew what they were doing, they handled the panels very well. I actually observed their installations. They were here when they said they would be.

We are very happy with our unfinished basement renovation experience, and even happier with the end result. Dave and his team were always professional, punctual and clearly knew how to do basement remodeling work. We felt very comfortable with Dave from the moment he arrived to give us a quote. He has considerable experience, and was able to provide valuable guidance as we discussed our needs for the space. We had several small changes and Dave did an excellent job of setting expectations. The final price of the project was within our budget. While Dave was not on site every day, his team was present every day with only one or two exceptions. I really enjoyed working with Andy and Dan, who were our primary day to day contact. The team was very punctual, usually hard at work by 8:30am, and always cleaned up the work site before they left late afternoon. Everyone was very considerate with our family. We are very impressed with the quality of the work that was completed. The finished product is a large, bright room. Dave and his team made excellent use out of every square inch of space, and we truly appreciate their efforts. We highly recommend DJM Construction.

Hufnagel Electric

The job was installed precisely as expected, on time and correct. Had three estimates, they had the most knowledge and confidence for the job, so I said, Yes the day they came to give me estimate. I have 25 yrs. experience in the construction industry, I know what is good, fair or just down right bad. Dan and Jason came to install, they installed exactly as written in contract. They were professional, courteous, clean and very proficient. Was very pleased when job was complete, 6 hrs later, I was extactic. Most folks investments, especially there homes are the largest and most important investment that they make in a lifetime. I wasn't about to let someone who was inadaquit do the job. I chose this company because of there skill set, were most organized, answered questions correctly in regards to codes in my township. They did it, and I am very excited and pleased that hufnagel did the job. I can sleep at night knowing that my home is protected against lightning strikes with a rod placed outside, whole house surge protection and not least they mapped out every single outlet, recepticles, appliances down to the area were the alarm clock was plugged in. Bravo zulo for a job well done. The real boss is Joyce, Dave's wife, was so nice to speak to on the phone in preparations for the job..Blessings to Hufnagel's, to me they are quite the fun crew. They made me laugh quite a bit, and found out my wife was there favorite. And thats ok, she is my favorite too..Blessings Always!

John E. Sambol & Sons Electric
5.0
I live in Beaver County. Many of the businesses on Angie's List don't come to Beaver County, and if they do, they add on a $50-$100 fee. We called Sambols (whose name I got from the Yellow Pages) when a wire sparked while we were hammering in a nail for a mirror. Sambols came out right away and fixed the problem to our satisfaction. Later, we got numerous estimates to replace our 100 amp service with 200 amp service in our mid-1800's house. Sambols' price was not the most expensive, nor the cheapest, but they could do the job the quickest, so we hired them. I believe with all the extra work they eventually ended up doing, they would have been the least expensive. I liked the way they worked, so I contracted them to do additional work while they were here.

FIRST GENERAL SVC-WESTERN PA
5.0
My insurance claims agent referred me to First General after my house was struck by lightning and caught fire Friday, July 22, 2011. Her exact words were, "They are awesome and will take great care of you." So far, I would have to say she is exactly right. Within hours of the fire and minutes of my insurance claims agent putting a request order for First General to contact me, Ben from First General called me to set up a time to assess the property damage. I wasn't even off the phone with the insurance claims agent when Ben called, so I had to ask Ben if I could call him back. Before I let Ben off the phone, he asked if I needed someone to tarp the damaged portion of the house, and I emphatically said yes. I called Ben back after ending my call with the insurance claims agent about five minutes later and was impressed to learn he had already arranged for roofers to tarp the portion of the house that was damaged as well as a window the firemen busted while trying to gain access to the house. He had only been assigned the case for five minutes! He also thoroughly explained to the restoration, reconstruction, and removal process to me and put my panicked mind at ease. When he said, "I know it's hard to hear, 'Don't worry,' because your house just caught fire, but we're going to take care of everything and make it good as new or better. All you need to worry about is what color paint you want," I totally believed he was sincere and knew I had the right person for the job. Ben and the roofers showed up bright and early at 6:30 a.m. Saturday, July 23, 2011 (less than 12 hours after the fire) ready to work, and they finished the job just as quickly as they arrived. Because the damage was so extensive, I expected it would take weeks for reconstruction to begin, but surprise! Fran, the project manager Ben assigned to oversee the repairs, had an electrician out Wednesday morning (again, bright and early), July 27, 2011, to start rewiring the electrical. The entire project is expected to be complete some time around the end of November/beginning of December, but I have no doubts based on my experience so far that I will be superbly happy with the quality and workmanship. Of course, I will post a full and detailed update once the work is done.

Recent Review: My house was directly hit by lightning at around 3 am this morning. I'm writing this same day review because CW Electrical exceeded my expectations today. The lightning caused about half of my breaker box to trip. I also experienced roof damage and water damage. I called CW based on Angie's list reviews and Dave came to my home. He checked out my breaker box, replaced a GFI outlet that was damaged by the lightning and made me aware that my washer's internal electronics were damaged by the lightning. He advised me to check the other electronic/electrical devices and appliance in my house as there could be more damage. That was very good advice as I indeed found additional loss. I was not charged a trip fee, etc. There was no attempt to "upsell", etc. I appreciate the quick response, politeness, respect for my home, and help. Thanks again Dave and I will be calling again when I need electrical work done.
