We have now hired Robert for several electrical projects in our home. The latest one was for a bathroom renovation. As always, Robert is professional and friendly and we always feel confident in the quality of his work. We wouldn't hesitate to call on Robert again...and likely will this coming summer :)
looking forward to your call.
Thank you for the kind comments
I would heartily recommend Robert for any and all electrical work. He is friendly, professional, efficient and very respectful of people and property. He installed my under counter lights in an hour, and I love them! They're exactly what I wanted, and I didn't even know what I wanted...he figured that out from my vague description of the job. A neighbour and fellow contractor recommended him to me in the first place, and I've passed along his contact info to others. Don't waste time looking anywhere else!
thank you for the review. comments like this help keep us helping you!
Robert provided excellent support for my wife and I. He is extremely professional and his work and craftsmanship is top notch. I would highly recommend him for any of your electrical needs.
Thank you for the great review it was a pleasure helping your family.
I liked the quality of the work that Robert provided. Robert chose the best place and configuration for all the pot lights (16 interior and 4 exterior) and he installed them with skill and care. All the work was completed on time and very efficiently with zero mess. Robert always checks up with you to make sure you are not just very satisfied with his work but very happy. I liked how Robert took every installation (big or small) he did for us seriously and courteously and always fit us in to his schedule. He very nicely repaired some of our siding that was damaged by somebody else when he installed our exterior pot lights!
Robert is very professional and he always provides all necessary paper work and electrical permits promptly. We are very happy with his work and recommend him without hesitation.
Always a pleasure to help Louise, thank you for your continued confidence and look forward to helping again.
I put together a shortlist of electricians for a few jobs which exceeded my skill-set. Robert turned up on day 1 for the quote and demonstrated his knowledge, professionalism and experience right away. Hired him on the spot.
Installed 9 potlights in the kitchen, repositioned a ceiling light in the dining room and installed 3 smoke / CO alarms. His prices are fair, he is uber-efficient, ruthlessly methodical, punctual, affable, proud of his work and he looks after your home as he would his own.
Robert even educated me on why the ESA exists, when (as a foreigner) I asked why the ESA even exists and aren't they just another sinister and nefarious money-grabbing scheme perpetrated by a monopolistic pseudo governmental entity. Not many trade professionals would take the time to shine the light of knowledge upon a client's profound lack of it.
Suffice to say the subsequent ESA Inspection passed with flying colours and I am putting together my next consignment of electrical jobs for Robert for 2019. Simply cannot countenance using anyone else.
11 out of 10 for me
Rob, it is always tough knowing who to turn to for any type of maintenance or repairs to your home. Luckily this site helps narrow the field and as I am a homeowner myself, I put that thought into my head every day to help others.
I have used ElecTriLight Ltd. before, and I would not have even considered using another company! I have found Robert to be very timely in his communication, very professional, courteous, and respectful of our home environment. He has given great suggestions for electrical efficiency, and has always let me know what he would be doing, prior to proceeding with any work! Very much appreciated, and I will continue to recommend ElecTriLight Ltd.!
Doing great work for customers is what I get up for every day, well and to keep food on our table too, but isn't that what life is about? wake, work, smile, sleep, repeat?
I have used Robert's company three times and highly recommend them. He is professional, thorough, forward thinking and reasonably priced.
I had sudden and unexplainable power loss in my house. Multiple fuses blew and half my "NEW" kitchen wasn't working. His response was very quick (within a few days) and his work was very professional. He found the source of the problem, the cause and the solution. The actual problem was caused by me (red face!) - thinking I could change some covers on outlets to match the new kitchen colours ...duh!!
Robert very patiently and respectfully explained why only a qualified electrician should be working with electricity, even on the small stuff. And I learned my lesson well.
The second time was when the built in fire/smoke alarm went off -with no way to turn it off. He was there the same day, within a few hours. He was concerned that this be done a.s.a.p. because of the safety factor involved. He checked the other battery alarms I had in place, explained which were working and recommended a few options for better protection.
Lastly, as my house is older, we discussed the age and amperage (<100). He returned to do a proper upgrade estimate, which I then scheduled (June/July 2018).
So, basically, from simple to complex jobs, Robert is the only one I would go to and recommend.
Thank you Grace, happy New Year to you and hope all is going well.
Robert did wiring and installed all receptacles, switches, lighting, sound system, cords for phone system, speakers and tv. Robert is on time, efficient, professional, personable, knowledgeable and tidy.
It is always at pleasure work with you Michelle, your team and compassion for others makes my job easier at times.
Robert has done work for me on a few occasions; swapping a small panel for a larger one with more capacity, installing a GFCI breaker, and upgrading a breaker that was overloaded. He is willing to explain what is at the root of a problem and provides options to address. His recommendations always consider ways to provide what is needed quickly, with minimal visits to reduce overall cost, without sacrificing quality.
Have recommended him to others in the past and would not hesitate to do so again in the future.
Thank you Mathew, pleasure helping you and your home in 2018.
Through the selling of my home, I had to commit to having the aluminum wiring in the home pigtailed by the closing date. I searched the internet and found Robert at ElevTrilight. I received exceptional service from the start. All email communications were responded to promptly and with lots of information.
On the day of the work, Robert said he'd be there by 8:00 and he was! Robert and his apprentice worked diligently for 8 hours. They ran into a few hiccups, however, they were able to resolve them all. They cleaned up as they went so I'd never would have known they were there.
He even came in under the amount quoted.
I highly recommend Robert for all your electrical needs.
Thanks for looking after me.
Thanks for the great review, it was our pleasure helping keep your home safe with electrical repairs. An honest days work never killed anyone!. I have to say homeowners and un-handymen should stop trying to do repairs on aluminum wiring themselves, especially when we see this too often! (see pic), antioxidant paste on the screw tops, not even close to the wires or terminals where it is needed. That is like putting lip balm on your armpits (aka - useless)

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.
We provide wiring for all home theatre, we don't provide the equipment (screens, TV, PVR, etc). we can, but recommend you see a local shop for those and best sale prices.
All new wiring for commercial buildings, renovations, new equipment connections, relocations. New lighting, power upgrades, panel changes, service entrances.
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.
All new additions require electrical as per code and heating. don't allow the GC to do your wiring.
