Mr. Electric of San Antonio
Free Estimates: Yes
Services: Electric Outlets & Fixtures Install, Electric Wiring Upgrade
On the recommendation of a friend, I called Mr. Electric for installation of a light fixture. My 45+ year-old house required extensive electrical repair and maintenance, and after the superb work he did on the fixture, I requested Tony for the needed major work. I've been dealing with this company for almost a year now and have been overwhelmingly satisfied with everyone representing them. Their rates are fair and competitive, and calling for service is always a pleasure, thanks to Angie's unfailing cheerfulness and willingness to work with my schedule. Throughout the years, I have never encountered anyone with more skill, competence, and professionalism than Tony. He graciously worked with me in making decisions about various fixtures, and I'm thrilled with the results of his suggestions. I have confidence that my house is safe and the satisfaction of knowing that should any electrical need arise, peace of mind is just a phone call away. I wouldn't consider calling anyone else.
Our electrician was Juan. He showed up on time. He looked professional. He diagnosed our problems, proposed a solution, and did the work in a very competent manner. These guys will probably not be the cheapest electricians you could find. But, really, do you want to sleep in a house where maybe someone cut corners or did not really fix the problem? With electricity? I gladly paid the bill and have slept well since.

They are a bait and switch operation. We contracted for a specific wiring job, but the electrician wrote down the wrong specs. The total job was around $4K and we paid him $1,500 ($1,100 for work done that day and $400 to be applied to completing the job). When we called the electrician about the estimate having the wrong wiring, he said that he was going to install what we wanted even though it wasn't on the work order. We cancelled the job and asked for a refund. The owner called us (with the electrician sitting there) and said anyone could make a mistake. We insisted on a refund and all at once the initial invoice changed, we were "magically" charged a service call, and only got a $250 refund of the $400. So I'd tell my best friend to keep looking.
