Robert was easy to communicate with and responded to every email efficiently. He was able to give us a quote and complete all the work within a weeks time. He pointed out some hazards that he found when replacing the receptacles and improved the safety while explaining the costs before he completed the work. I had many questions that he was more than willing to answer and we will definately be asking Robert back to continue the upgrades in our house in the near future.
Thank you for the business Julie and glad I was able to remove those "multi-pass-painted-over" receptacles (could hardly tell they were outlets there was so much paint in them) from 1970 to the new tamper resistant decora, modern touch and safe, who would have known??
One thing about electrical, you never know what lurks behind the walls from years of renovation and DIY'ers.
We know now what outlets are 100% safe!
We needed our unfinished basement wired and took a chance on Robert after reading previous reviews on this website. We were very satisfied with his quality of work, attention to detail, advice and reliability. We would definitely hire him again and recommend him to our family and friends.
Pleasure helping you and your family during your renovation. Enjoy your space and feel free to send my info to others as you see fit.
I do offer referral bonuses as well.
Your ESA certificate that I provided you will remain with your address on file if you ever sell your home, showing that the work was done by a licensed electrical contractor above CEC requirements.
Rob installed pot-lights in our house. The quality of service has surpassed our expectation.
Rob is highly knowledgeable on products available and he took time to educate us on available options.
We enjoy the results!
After getting several quotes for a basement renovation from other electricians, I finally came across Electrilight Ltd. Robert got back to me within a couple of hours to set up an appointment for a quote. His quote was thorough, and overall better than the previous quotes and more in line with my budget for the work I wanted to do. He was always punctual, polite, very knowledgeable and very professional. He ran all the wiring throughout the basement, cleaned up the existing wiring from the builder lights, and installed all the boxes, dimmers and switches and was extremely tidy with the whole process. He is now my preferred electrician/recommendation for any future electrical work that I or anyone I know may need.
It is always great to receive comments from clients whether good or bad to help companies "tune" their businesses.
Travis, your work space was an absolute contractors dream which certainly made it easy to get the job organized and finished for you, on-time and complete with ESA inspection.
If you ever decide to get into the "construction" industry, I could certainly recommend your handy skills with framing.
Recommendations = Rebates for family and friends. 24 hour emergency service is also part of the company profile for clients.
I hope you enjoy your new space.
I contacted Electrilight to quote my basement renovation. The house is an original 1950â€™s bungalow and the electrical was in need of updating as well as old wiring to be made safe. His quotation was very accurate, with no surprise costs or extras. He addressed the old wiring and made safe, tidied up the panel as needed and installed new electrical services to the rec room. He was punctual, courteous and extremely professional. Workmanship was very professional and super tidy! He met all the timelines he promised, showing up with all the right tools and equipment to complete the job in a timely manner. Very easy to communicate with, whether phone or email and always answers his calls.
I highly recommend Rob/Electrilight and look forward to using his services again!
Hey there Mary-Anne,
With you being right in the area of contracting yourself, you know how important many operations and trades need to follow through in order to maintain timelines and get a complete project done to move on to the next. I enjoyed working with you and your crew and look forward to the next project.
Too bad ESA messed up their inspection date, and sorry for their ignorance.
Best wishes for 2013!! Hope to see you soon.
As a contractor in the industry for some 20 years I have seen many trades come and go, recently are electrian retired leaving us to find a new one which was difficult after working with the same guy for many years. We came across Rob and many others and asked them to submit a detailed estimate on a pending job. Robs price was not the lowest or highest but right around the number I had budgeted. Rob came when he said he would, which is extremly important to us as contractors he was easy to work with and did a professional job on time and on BUDGET. CMJ Renovations was very pleased overall as was my client and we will use Rob as our preferred Electrian in the future
Thank you Mark for your positve comments and look forward to working with you guys again on the next project.
till next time ;)
I have hired Robbert for a number of jobs around the home. Installing Ethernet drops, installing 2 cieling fans. He is a very fast and courteous person. I was very happy with his work and his punctuality. He will be working on another job for me this fall wshen the weather cools down.
Glad to have worked for you, I couldn't ask for a more easy client to discuss openly various options of your 18 ETHERNET cables!! Wow, sure were long runs. I am glad you are happy and look forward to climbing in your attic this fall to finish the job for you.
Robert McKinnon (Master Electrician/Owner) of Electrilight Ltd. was an easy choice for my basement renovation. He was very professional and courteous. He was also very flexible with my changing work schedule. The finished product is perfect and exactly what I had asked for. I will definately have him back in my home for any future electrical work.
Thank you Tracy for the kind comments, I am glad to have had the opportunity to update and install some of the basement wiring. I certainly wish my job could always be as easy as that ESA inspector though!! 5 minutes and get paid for an hour! Lol.
Please feel free to pass my name along to your family and friends and with this, I'll add a 10% discount on their, or your, next service call.
Pleasure doing business and wish you well in your newly, near completed, renovation.
Very customer friendly - clear communication, great follow-up to questions, and overall a very effortless experience. If you want an electrician who does great work and who will get back to you immediately via email, Robert is your guy.
Will be using him in the future for any additional needs.
Thank you for your kind remarks. Customers like you make our job easier.
Was a pleasure doing your small project.
Hope to see you again, pass the word to your family and friends. Good business comes from great contacts.
Robert arrived on time to finish my basement wiring job. He came to my home not knowing if I was hiring him or not. The quote was very accurate, work was professional, clean up done and inspection services provided as well.
Thanks Sarah for the kind remarks, Glad to be of service. Look forward to finishing the other projects as you require.

Robert and I have worked on many projects together over the years. His philosophy is the same as mine, if it is done right the first time you should never see us again about failures or shortcomings on that particular job. If your going to be a bear, it is best to be a grizzly bear. No half-assed, half-hearted attempts in any of Roberts jobs. Robert may not be the cheapest guy on the block, but then again you are not paying for the cheapest guy on the block. I truly believe that any project Robert takes on for his clients will be done not only to the best his ability, but will be done to ensure the safety of those he does work for. Roberts customers will not find him working on any project that he is not 100% sure of. The end result of using Robert at Electrilight Ltd. for all your wiring/cabling projects will always be at the very minimum up electrical code and above Canada's safety standards. No short-cuts, No cheap-outs on materials, No cutting corners to save himself a few dollars. Roberts first priority will always be to ensure that every electrical project he does is done correctly, because, there are few second chances once an electrical fire starts.
Outdoor hot tubs must have a LEC (licensed electrical contractor) install the wiring for these and we provide the ESA inspection as well, the only thing we don't do is supply the tub and dig trenches.
Electrical wiring for basement renovations must be completed only by a licensed electrical contractor. we walk through the entire process and address what you require plus add what must be there to meet code
Everything electrical, we supply it, install it, make it safe and guarantee it. We are not wholesale though.
Older electrical systems should be checked and repaired for peace of mind. If you have aluminum wiring it is definitely time to review all connections. If you see flickering lights or snapping switches or outlets, the danger could already be started.
Electrical full home inspection with or without ESA final inspection. 2-6 hour inspections will tell you what is good, what is bad, and what your home (selling or buying) is all about and what condition it is in.

Century homes, knob and tube, and aluminum wiring needs attention for any home restoration. after floods, wiring and devices must be inspected and possibly replaced.
All kitchen renos will require an electrical permit and some relocations. Appliance garages are illegal to install unless done by a licensed electrical contractor.
In-floor electric heating installed to code and with ESA permit, we don't lay the floor tiles, but we pre-wire for the feed and conduits to power it.
Basic data wiring needs from Cat 5 and Cat 6 systems to get your home or building networked together. Residential, Commercial and Industrial installations.
From renovated, updated or new, we install what must be done to meet codes and safety. DIY wiring is all too often found and more than often hazardous.
Designing electrical systems that are safe and will allow for future expansion. We pride ourselves in quality of materials and workmanship.
We provide new installation of wired alarm systems, from motions, to panels, to wireless modules. We do not offer monitoring.
Full electrical services with ESA permits and inspections, which are mandatory/ 2 year warranty on all electrical we install.
