What others say about John's Electric Service

John's Electric did a very thorough,quick and thrifty job! I would absolutely recommend them for your electrical work! Bravo!

Aubrey upgraded our electrical fuse panel, put in an updated outside service panel, replaced the main service line from the outside panel to the inside fuse box, and installed several outlets. His original estimate was complete and accurate. He brought our electrical system up to code and made several recommendations for changes and upgrades that we had not thought of. He worked with our schedule, was on time and very professional, and left our home as clean as when he arrived. He was extremely conscientious and reliable. We very highly recommend John's Electric and will definitely use them again.

Fixed our outside meter box. Less than 2 hours work.

They did wonderful. Alabama Power was a little hard to deal with, but they arranged everything. Pretty good communication. I thought they were a little pricey, even with the coupon. They made the repairs and the power was back on in less than two hours.

Even though I thought the price was a little high the service was fantastic. Aubrey came right away and did a great job. He cleaned up all of the "mess". I can't tell you how much that was appreciated. I have had other contractors that left all of the packaging, etc when they completed their work--as if they just couldn't be bothered. it was greatly appreciated
