We were exceedingly pleased with Brian. He showed up on time, was extremely efficient, knowledgeable and always concerned with keeping our home clean. We are pleased to give Parks Electrical our highest endorsement.

Parks has ALWAYS performed top-notch work for us with the highest level of professional standards; always done competently, respectfully, and courteously. The work has always been at very reasonable pricing with absolutely NO surprises. Also, it seems that we always find one or two additional things we'd like them to do while at our home; no problem--they just adjust and get the additional work completed with a smile. We trust them to quickly respond to our calls for help and they have never, ever disappointed us. For this recent service call, they had to come back three time and we were NEVER billed for a trip charge.

Description of Work
We have called on Parks Electric for all kinds of related needs for more than 15 years; most recently, to assist us with a installation of a home security system.

Parks Electrical has worked on many projects for me since 2016. The latest was adding electrical for a bathroom remodel and installing a chandelier in our hallway and lights over bookshelves in the family room. They have also done electrical for a master bath remodel and a kitchen remodel. Steve Parks runs a small company and often is busy with more work than he can sometimes handle (a good sign) , but I have always found him to be very conscientious about returning calls and working to provide the best service he can on my schedule. During the latest project his crew had installed a new light outlet in our shower and the tile contractor didn't want install the tile because he was unsure about clearance for the light. I called Steve and he came over in 15 minutes to explain to the tile installer which light was being installed. Work continued immediately. We moved here from Washington DC in 2013. I learned in DC that once I find a professional and trustworthy contractor I working with them, just as I would a good doctor. As I said above, I have been using Parks Electrical since 2016.

Andrea C.

They sent out a bunch of younger guys, which is fine, they did the work correctly. I didn't feel like I had good communication with the owner of the business and consequently they double billed us. That was annoying, to get a double bill. We had to call and say we already paid it. Luckily we had all the paperwork that we had paid and had to send it back and say no, this is what we had done and here is your bill that we paid. They were like, oh we sent you the bill and you paid it already ok great, never mind then. It was a weird thing to have happen. They were "fine". The work was ok, but the billing could have been more precise.

We apologize for any issues you are having but this is the first time we are aware of any issue. We are more then happy to fix or correct any issues. When this was completed everything was checked and confirmed by both the home owner and the installer that both parties are satisfied. We encourage you to adjust your review as its a bold statement to say that we took your money and ran. We are a company that takes pride in all our projects and to see a happy customer at the end of the project. Customer referrals are how we obtain 95% of all our business. Thank you for a review good or bad as it helps us develop our company for the future but at the same time incorrect info only hurts.

Everything went great on a multitude of issues that Parks Electric handled for us recently. We have always been very happy with their expertise and friendliness. Steve runs a great business and Dave has really developed an expertise in home theater systems. We have done business with Parks Electric since 1993 . We also have several other family members that have been long time customers of Parks Electric. This family business is a class act. After living in other cities where finding trustworthy, quality professionals that offer top service was often a challenge, we are thrilled to be back in Madison working with the friendly, knowledgeable professionals at Parks Electric

Description of Work
Worked on troubleshooting issues we were having with our surround sound AV system. They checked wiring, replaced an AV system component, mounted a new tv, installed an antenna for the other t.v.s in the house. They also checked on issues we were having with our Wifi and moved a wall mounted space heater for us.

I called Parks Electric to install an electric car charger in my garage. They had to run the wiring from the panel in the basement out to the garage. They used high quality materials and the job was top notch. They cleaned up after themselves and were accommodating to my schedule. Speaking of schedule, they were very prompt and got the job done quickly.

In addition to diagnosing the reason one of our recessed lights was turning itself on and off and teaching me about the correct bulbs to use in the fixture, the provider adjusted the grips on the fixtures so that it will be easier for me to change the bulbs in the future. With all of the many light bulb options available to the consumer today it is easy to purchase a bulb that is not intended for the fixture you have. The provider took the time to give me a mini-lesson on what to purchase and why for the various fixtures in my home.
