Reviews in Portland for Installing Outlets

Portland Metro Electric LLC
5.0
Dave's work was high-quality and thorough. I had a small list of small repairs and updates and he clearly described his findings and recommendations for all of them. He took care to install our new outlets exactly where we wanted them placed and he left everything clean.

The electrician went through an outside wall and installed the new outlet directly opposite an indoor outlet. The work went without a hitch and was completed in about an hour. The electrician also cleaned up a small amount of debris created by the drilling.

It took him quite awhile to come out and start the job. He did follow through and I told him that it was okay because I was not in a rush to have the work done. He installed a new electrical outlet in my basement. Previously, I had a sprinkler system wired to an extension cord that was plugged in to an outside electrical outlet. He wired the basement outlet into another wire that was down there, and it is wrapped in black electrical tape, but it does not look like it would be up to code. He nailed the box to a stud and the nails are three times longer than the board itself. The job does not look pretty, but it is functional.

We have used Greenbox several times over the past couple years and have been happy with the results each time. We needed an outlet put in our fireplace for a new insert, and had our old 2-prong outlets updated at the same time. Jeff did a great job with the electrical and Brett did a great job with the drywall patching necessary after that job. We have had Devin out to do plumbing for us twice - first a complete re-do of a bad washer line hookup done by a previous plumber, and then he fixed our slow-running faucets. We were very happy with his work each time. Greenbox was able to fit us in very quickly, especially appreciated for the plumbing jobs. Everyone we have dealt with at Greenbox (technicians and office) has been a pleasure to work with; we would hire again anytime.

I had called this morning to arrange to have someone come to fix the outlet. However, husband said, no. He would do it. We provided the new outlet, but because my husband was stubborn and tried to do it himself, we blew the main and had to call again later to have someone come to fix it. Because the call made the repair after 5:00 p.m., it cost an extra $25.00. The repairman was prompt and courteous. We are pleased with his professionalism and a job well done. There was no discount for being a member of Angie's List nor for being senior citizens. I was fine paying and husband won't hear the end of it any time soon.

In general the job went very well. We appreciated the fact that David has had a lot of experience installing outlets in fireplaces so he knew exactly what to do. He did say, however, that he would have preferred to do the work at the same time as the installation of the gas insert so that placement of electric and gas lines could be better synchronized. Nevertheless, he went about the task confidently and efficiently. We were pleased that he was able to bring a line up directly from the basement. Something that is not always possible in an older house like ours. David is very knowledgeable and extremely pleasant. However, the company should have arranged for his visit to coincide with the installation of the insert. When the insert installers came out 2 weeks later, it was discovered that the line was not positioned in quite the right place. Fortunately, after consulting with David via telephone, they were able to make the necessary adjustments.

I needed wiring and an electrical outlet to be moved to make way for a new exterior door. Adam showed up on time and worked with the door installers to find the most cost effective solution. Instead of installing junction boxes he installed new outlets. His prices were up-front and he worked quickly. The job was completed in about 1h45min including time to consult w/ the door installers, etc. I recommend that you wait on purchasing the $260 for 2hr of labor Angie's List deal. My total cost ended up being less since he charged a flat rate for the new outlet installation and permit (instead of charging an hourly fee). They do charge a travel fee, but the total cost was reasonable for a professional installation. I will definitely call Mr. Sparky and request Adam next time I need electrical work. My only problem was in scheduling the work. I called to schedule and we miscommunicated on the day. It turned out that the appointment was actually scheduled a day later than I had requested. When I tried to call on the originally scheduled day their phone number was disconnected.... This made me very nervous, but when I tried again 4hrs later the call went through. Not sure what happened here... but it turned out okay in the end. Don't bother trying to contact their corporate offices in Florida. They have no additional information about the local offices, but they did offer to send an email about the phone issue.

They responded promptly to messages via Angie's List, and the person who provided an estimate was punctual and an effective communicator. They were scheduled out a couple of months and I found someone who could do the work sooner, but I would contact RK again for work, they gave me confidence in their professionalism.

Recent Review: Couldn't ask for a better experience. We had to cancel our earlier Friday appointment with him less than 24 hours before because we were not able to get our 220V outlet which we needed for the new stove installed. No problem. The following Tuesday he showed up and worked well with our electrician who installed the new outlet. Mike and his helper were professional, efficient. Hauled away the old stove and left everything neat and cleaned up. Price was definitely worth it!

If your home was built in the 1960’s to the late 1970’s, there is a good chance that electrical wiring in your home might be aluminum wire instead of copper wiring. Since the mid-1970’s, only copper wiring has been used in homes, due to aluminum wiring was found to pose a fire hazard. You might need to have aluminum wiring replacement done in your Portland home. Aluminum wiring is can be a fire hazard wherever it is spliced or makes a connection with an outlet, switch, circuit breaker or other component of an electrical system. One reason aluminum wiring is such a fire hazard is because it shrinks and expands depending on the temperature. These changes to the aluminum wires can result in overheating, sparks and fires.

Recent Review: I called because the electrical outlets in the kitchen weren't working, first on one wall and then the other and we hadn't been able to the GFCI outlet so that we could reset. John told me where they could be and walked me through it because he said he'd hate to come out and charge me $90 just to push a button. I still set up an appointment in case but was finally able to find the GFCI outlet (under the sink!). I really appreciate service providers like John who really seem to want to help (and he didn't make me feel like an idiot for not knowing something so basic like what GFCI outlets do).
