Never hire Square One. Initially our only problem was that they got into an argument with the inspector regarding electrical code related to grounding the entire system. Once that was resolved and inspector had signed off, we figured that the minor remaining issues could be fixed by my husband (an electrical engineer). Minor being a couple incorrectly wired light switches. However we found a major...

We have used Square 1 several times and have always had a good experience.

Description of Work
We had an outlet rewired. The tech then discovered some dangerous wiring issues in another outlet and fixed that too.

Fine Square One gave my call to Clackamas Electric. Probably because there was someone who could take the problem quickly. The electrician arrived and checked to be sure there were no other problems than the one circuit. This was not the case, however. He replaced the burned out gfci and so it was all done so efficiently. The reason that I marked them down for price is that there was a $250 emerge...

Description of Work
The gfi circuit in the bathroom started emitting smoke and popping spontaneously. Alarming to say the least.

Our estimate was great, quick and informative. We booked the appointment and got the work done quickly. Very pleased with how well they diagnosed our lighting fixture and were able to fix it, plus discovered the switch also needed fixing. Very pleased, we got estimates for more work that we will definitely hire them again for in the future.

Description of Work
Needed our over the range microwave put on its own breaker. Also had a light fixture in the kitchen not working properly.

They were good. He did a real good job, went straight to it, he explained what he did, he’d shown what he had done and he was great. I wish I could remember his name because he was really good. The guy who came out to do our stuff was really thorough, he was really clean. Everything is working so he obviously did a good job. He was real informative too about what he did and I like that. I think we...

I do not like giving bad reviews so I am going to be honest and not overly critical. We had the free estimate and initially really liked Jay. We sent the home inspection over prior and he reviewed it before arrival. Because he reviewed it, he didn't feel he needed to see a lot in person so did a quick look throughout the home to ensure it didn't need rewire (it didnt). We got the estimate and it w...

Description of Work
We bought a new home that needs a ton of electrical work done. There was a lot of DIY work which is not to code and unsafe. The box was double tapped and unsafe. The attic had a nest of live wires and around the home had live wires exposed to elements.

I was called on 7/28; I missed the call but called back with in 40 minutes in early afternoon and the scheduler was unavailable so they took my name and number again. I called again on 7/29 but since it was a Saturday was told the scheduler wasn't working but would leave a message for her. I called again on 7/31 and was told the s...

It went fine. Beautiful installation. It could have been very difficult. He stuck with it. He was muttering under his mouth, well how the hell am I going to do that. He pulled it off. It was an beautiful installation. The price is a little high. They specialize in old homes. That is why it cost more. The first electrician said they wouldn't even touch it.

Description of Work
He hung an dining room light. The house is 100 years old, and has old nob and tubes in it. He had to go into the attic and remove the nob and tubs, and put correct current wiring to the light.
