Baldissera Electric LLC
Electricians in Washington, DC
"Marcos rewired my brother's entire house and did a fantastic job and corrected all the mistakes and brought everything up to code. After hearing about my brother's experience, I hired Marcos to fix the lighting and bring all my electrical issues up to code when i purchased a new property recently. He talked me through all my electrical issues and explained everything to me, which has been tremendously helpful. He was so good that even the seller of my property hired him to fix some electrical issues! He is absolutely fantastic, easy to work with, and always completes the job really fast with no disruptions. He is my go to electrician and I cannot recommend him highly enough."

"There is never a problem with McKay's Electric company's work. This last time we called them to install some lights in our basement. Before that they did the wiring of the whole house. We also had them install an outside receptacle for our camper. They never leave a mess behind and have always had the jobs done when they had quoted us. I highly recommend their work."

He was very professional, was very knowledgeable and helpful in making suggestions on how to do things, and took the time to do put in the Manual Transfer Switch panel in very tight quarters. Liam always completed the work on schedule and within the budget estimate he had provided."

Circuit Doctors® Electric Services, LLC
Electricians in Washington, DC
"4/23/17. Dave successfully researched, diagnosed, and repaired our GFI line issues, which involved 2 trips to find the 3 intermittent issues: Mud behind an outside plug, a too-short wire tap on a basement pull-chain light connection from a previous electrician, and an incorrect wire wrapping together on the GFI reset outlet. Now my wife can run her hair dryer without the GFI popping off and the breaker no longer tripping when I reset it. Dave has given me a Happy Wife, so a Happy Life! While here he also fixed our door bell system, and added a surge protector on the box. Thank you for your competent skill Dave! Bob in Silver Spring Maryland."
