Basement Apartment Wiring- Mar 23, 2016

Again working with Larry and his team....was a good decision all round. We had done some work in the basement and had it converted into a one bedroom apartment. We needed electrical work done and decided to give Larry a call. Most of the work was done in stages and we had Larry and his team come in a few times. He was accommodating and worked around our schedule. Installing switches, outlets and installing a dedicated line for the washer/dryer and more. Everything looks great!

Removing Knob & Tube Wiring- Apr 23, 2015

We discovered some old wiring in our recently purchased home - and contacted HC Electrical based on positive reviews from Homestars. Given that our insurance required us to change the wiring in a timely fashion - we were anxious to find a company that could complete the job within our 30 day window. HC Electrical were the first to connect with us following our inquiry and Larry was able to schedule a visit to our house to assess the wiring situation and provide a quote. He was very friendly, informative and explained what work would be required and how he and his team would work around our old lath/plaster walls. Larry followed up the visit with an email with detailed quote attached. Larry and his team arrived on time for all scheduled appointments and completed the work with the time frame promised. They took great care with our finicky lath/plaster walls and cleaned up the work areas at the end of each day. When our new AFCI outlet was giving us a hard time - Larry arrived promptly to resolve the issue. Great customer service! We will definitely utilize HC Electrical again in the future.

Knob And Tube- Apr 15, 2015

Larry is HE Electrical! He is upfront about all the work and changes. He doesn't do all the work himself but supervises the workers very closely. He is quick to respond to any unforeseen or unexpected challenges. (Ours is an older house). His workers were very easy to have in the house and cleaned up after the electrical work. They were hard working and arrived every day on time. Reliable and trustworthy.

Exceptional customer service - Jan 24, 2015

I was pleased to see Larry and Ken show up at my house at 8am this morning, on time and punctual. I did a quick walk through with Larry and explained that the 3 way switch in the hallway was acting up. He did the troubleshooting and repaired the 3way switch. He also changed a faulty breaker in the panel - it was a 15 amp breaker. All of this work in less then 2 hours.

Tripped Circuit troubleshooting- Jan 15, 2015

I called Larry after reading about him on homestars to come help with my electrical issue at me house. I had some outlets in my living room that would constantly trip. I called Larry and he was able to diagnose the problem right away. It was an easy fix for him, and a bigger relief for me because it only took him a few minutes to find and solve the issue with the outlets. Thanks Larry and all the best for the New Year!

Complete rewiring of rental units- Nov 04, 2014

10 out of 10 doesn't do Larry justice! He and his crew were beyond amazing. One of his references refered to him as a "fishing genius" and that's truly what he is. There is nothing that he can't do, and not only that, he does everything with as little disruption as possible and always with a smile. He points out all the pros and cons of every decision. He is creative, precise, thorough, knowledgeable, responsive, reliable, friendly, and cost-effective. After completely rewiring my house and creating apartments, he passed the ESA inspection with flying colours. I had a bad experience with a previous electrician, so I was very careful in choosing a new one. After reading all the amazing reviews on HC Electrical on homestars, I also called many of his references directly. They all concurred that Larry and his team are amazing. Thank you Larry for everything you have done for us.

Icestorm rescue by HC Electrical - Jan 10, 2014

On Sunday December 22nd, we woke up with no power after the ice storm. The falling trees had caused damage to the main power line that was connected to the service panel and we needed to get an electrician right away. I research for electrical services and decided to call HC Electrical Service. Larry was able to schedule me in for Monday 8 pm and that was really very nice of him and his crew especially in the cold weather. They showed up at my house on time and worked past midnight to get everything connected. The next day Toronto Hydro came and reconnected the line. I am glad that I was one the first to call Larry and get scheduled in as a lot of my neighbors did not have power until after christmas. HC Electrical Services was prompt, efficient and did a professional job. I was happy because of them, I had a great christmas with my family. Thank you HC Electrical Services !!!!

Knob and Tube Replacement - Nov 30, 2013

We just purchased an old home with knob and tube wiring which needed replacing prior to moving in and we had a very short closing date. Larry we wonderful he provided a quote quickly and was able to start work almost immediately. We choose him over other electricians because he thoughtful about the little things. As opposed to simply adding the minimum requirement he suggested things that would make living in the home far more convenient- whenever I need a plug we have one! He also promised and delivered very few holes, as we have plaster walls it was a huge concern and he filled them in! I would recommend Larry and his team, they were great!

Fantastic work! - Nov 21, 2013

This review is way overdue. I had hc electrical at my home at the start of summer to install potlights in my open plan kitchen, livingroom/dining room and was very pleased with the work. In total he installed 35 potlights, a ceiling fan and moved the washer & dryer outlet. Larry made some excellent suggestions in design and positioning of the potlights that worked well with the flow and layout of the space. Everything looks great and many of my friends compliment the work, that I why I just had to come on homestars and leave a review.

New power line into house- Jan 21, 2016

Called Larry on a recommendation of a friend and I'm glad I did. He diagnosed the problem very quickly and assisted me in dealing with Toronto Hydro, which in the end, was my responsibility anyway. I was not happy I had to replace the power line and meter base but I'm glad I called Larry. A very nice and professional guy and he does great work at competitive rates.

200 Amp Service & Panel Upgrade- Nov 15, 2015

Larry and his team did an amazing job with the service and panel upgrade. From initial contact for estimate to turning the panel on, the whole experience was outstanding. I called couple of electricians based on their good reviews on Homestars and the experience was horrible. One of the contractor with very high rating didn't even return my call, another one said they are too busy to take the job, the third one asked me to send picture to provide an estimate. Larry answered the call right away and agreed to drop by to provide an estimate. He explained what needed to be done and the whole process of getting permit from hydro, getting ESA inspection done and power disconnect/reconnect by hydro. Couple of days prior to the actual work, he called me to give reminder. On the day of the job, Larry and two crews showed up before 8 am. They started prep work prior to hydro disconnecting the power. After the power was disconnected, they started changing old panel, replaced the old power line coming to the house with new mast and meter socket. The ESA inspector came and approved the work in the form of connection authorization (required by hydro to turn the power on). Larry and his crews cleaned up the work area and took away all old panels, pipe, wire and everything. Larry paid attention to very minor details like filling up the void with spray foam created after removal of the old pipe carrying power line. He is the best contractor I have ever come across. He was very humble and courteous. I wish I could find more contractors like him. Thank you very much Larry. I appreciate your sincerity and good work. All the best!!!!

Electrical Work- Aug 26, 2014

We had a power surge, which took out the lights in a number of rooms. We called a number of electricians and Larry called back same day and then was out the same evening. He found the problem (burnt contact), fixed it, and replaced and insulated two light switches as well. Super courteous and explained everything clearly to us. Would definitely use HC again.

Amazing Service ! - Dec 20, 2013

I called HC Electrical Services after reading a few reviews on HomeStars. Larry arrived when he said he would, went over my list of what needed to be fixed, and quickly went to work. Although the work I needed to be done was minor, he spent the time to fix and check everything. What I liked about Larry was that he explained how everything worked and what was wrong with each issue. For example, the wall switch was wired incorrectly by the previous owner - a quick fix. I didn't need two of the GFCIs installed as they were already protected. The other two GFCIs were my option to install due to the wiring on the circuit; I chose to leave them as is. And the dead wall socket was a wiring issue extending from another socket in the room. Larry also rewired a wall switch for me to separate a wall socket and an overhead light. Throughout, Larry could have easily upsold me on repairs I didn't need, but he didn't. Instead, he explained everything so I could better understand the wiring in my home. I'm glad I called HC Electrical. If I have another electrical project in the future, I will certainly call Larry and his team first!

Basement work and renovations - Nov 25, 2013

We were renovating our house in stages and had used hc electrical previously. It was a obvious choice for us to call them again a few months later when we had another project to complete. I called them again because I found Larry and his team of electricians hardworking, reliable and honest. They would communicate and issues they came across and completed the work ontime as I had the drywaller coming in after them. As always they delivered and did the same great work as before.

Furnace emergency - Nov 15, 2013

I needed an electrician that was gonna come in right away after the drop in temperatures of this past week. I called hc electrical and larry was working in the area which was great! He came around 8:30pm and found that the breaker was down and that the line giving power to the furnace was dead. He drove to get supplies and worked on my home until 11pm to run the line and get things going. The job was done right and fast!
Thank you, guys !!!!
