One morning, the electrical circuit connecting all of our major kitchen appliances suddenly stopped working. I attempted to troubleshoot and fix the problem myself, but after several failed attempts, I needed to contact an electrician. I text Derek on a Saturday morning, and he responded within 15 minutes and let me know he could come by later that afternoon. When he arrives, he was able to pinpoi...

I couldn't be more pleased with the level of service or the price. The service provider arrived wearing a mask and gloves, which was much appreciated during this COVID-19 situation. He was very professional and polite. The work totally resolved the problem with the ceiling fan/light. There is other electrical work, which we will want to address and will hire this company to do the work.

This house had an original electrical system with at 16 port circuit breaker. The original wiring had fraying cloth insulation, and the majority of the house circuits were spread just on two circuits (4+ rooms per circuit). Derek and his crew installed a new 30 port breaker, new grounding attachments for the breaker (per code requirements), and several new lines (and associated conduits) for the h...

We thought Derek and his team were excellent to work with. They did quality work, were punctual, professional, and communicated well. We hired Derek to do the electrical side of a kitchen remodel. This encompassed the following: 100A to 200A service upgrade, service panel installation, new home run for kitchen, new outlet installation, wiring of new appliances, new LED Wafer light installation, an...

I'm very glad I contacted Derek Electric Inc. Everything went fine; the repair work was done quickly, professionally, and efficiently. The price was great, and the customer service was excellent.

Absolutely great experience. Quickly quoted, showed up on time, super helpful, very knowledgable, did a completely great job, cleaned up, and went above and beyond what they needed to do. I can not recommend this team enough.

They were great! The price was super reasonable, they were friendly, professional, and the work exceeded my expectations. Derek also went above and beyond. My pregnant wife locked herself out of the house, and I could not help her, because I was out of town. Derek came back, and climbed through one of the windows to unlock the door. I would definitely use them again.

Derek was amazing! Showed up right on time to review the work; offered a quote to do the work right then and there and offered to schedule it; or since it was a quick job to just knock it out right away! The work was professionally done; and I couldn't be happier with the end result. I will definitely be calling him again for my next job!

Derek was very professional. He was out of town when I called and he still called me back to let me know. I was able to wait for him to return. He was friendly and professional. He was able to figure out what the problems were and fix them quickly. I would hire him again and highly recommend him.

I had no power in several outlets. Derek was able to locate the problem quickly. He also was able to fix a fixture in a bedroom and another outlet in the bathroom.

After installing a deck, our town inspector told us we needed to replace our electrical mast so it was at least ten feet above the level of our deck, which involved replacing the existing mast and running the new one through the soffit and roof. WE found three vendors on Angies List, all rated A. Derek Electric (note: the owners name is not 'Derek' - its a long story) was the most responsive, agre...
