Berkeley Electric Inc
Electricians in Oakland, CA
"We hired Berkeley Electric to make our home in Berkeley safe as it had the original knob and tube wiring from the 1930's. Berkeley Electric did a re-wire of our home as well as replaced our Main Panel Unit which was unsafe. They are a highly qualified organization with decades of experience and a close attention to detail. They did an excellent job as well of keeping the job site in order and cleaning up each day.
