All of the work being done was fully explained and, in many cases, options were offered. The work was done efficiently, in less time than we expected and in one case quite creatively : a dedicated line was needed for our sump pump and ElecTriLight managed to find a way with a minimum of disruption to our finished basement.
Appreciate your kind remarks and it was a pleasure helping you with the repairs and the full home inspection.
Robert of "ElecTriLight" was a consumate professional : informing me beforehand what to expect and when, arriving exactly when he said he would, performing all the work efficiently and fully, and tidying up afterwards. Furthermore, he advised me as to certain issues he discovered during the course of his inspection and installation. And he replaced an outlet near my laundry sink with a GFI plug at no extra charge. I was extremely pleased and he receives my utmost highest recommendation ! You can hire ElecTriLight confident in the certainty that you will receive professional service at a reasonable price.
Glad to help!
We were very happy with Robert's work. He fit us into his schedule last-minute since we were worried about possible electrical problems. He found the problem and fixed it as quickly as possible. He was knowledgeable, friendly and professional. Would definitely recommend him for any of your electrical needs!
Thank you for the great review. It has been a pleasure removing the original fuse panel and those DIY hazards are gone forever. Replacing the melted meter socket wasn't even part of the original overview, but certainly needed to be gone.
I sent an email to Robert over the Christmas holidays with a brief overview of the electrical work I needed him to do.
I received a response from Robert fairly quickly. He wanted to understand the urgency of the problem and how quickly I wanted the issues addressed so he could schedule the service.
The other two companies I approached let me know what my options were based on their schedules. Neither one asked how quickly I needed the job taken care of.
The issue wasn’t urgent but I went with Robert because he was conscientious and professional enough to consider my needs and wants. Things that start well end well. Robert did a great job. He arrived on time, worked quickly and cleaned up before he left. I highly recommend his services.
Thank you Mark,
Older homes require maintenance. Paint, doors, windows, flooring, roof, but even electrical needs some TLC to inspect and repair old joints, plugs, switches. Happy to help keep your home safe.
Working with Robert was a very positive experience. He reviewed the situation, provided recommendations and a written quote for the work. He answered all my questions.
The work was performed according to schedule and on budget.
I would recommend Robert to anyone who needs any electrical work done in their home.
Thank you for the review. Please note that any concerns on quality will be addressed. We use top quality products which are covered for 12 months or longer based on the product. In the event products fail, we will do whatever we possibly can to have the manufacturer of that product assist with an on-site repair or follow-up if needed. We are installers, not manufacturers so can only assist best possible for any issues. The "quality" you refer to seems to pertain to running cables under floor joists instead of drilling through them, which is code to install in either method. Drilling through any support structures is avoided if possible to keep maximum strength in all materials as long as electrical code is followed.
Great service. Fast response. Professional advice. Clean work. Signed sealed delivered as promised.
Installation of a fantastic cable light system.
Thank you for your confidence in Electrilight.
We are extremely fortunate to have found a professional, courteous and responsive Licensed Electrician to complete a large job on time and on budget. Robert works from the customer back, does a great job of outlining expectations, time lines and is very punctual.
If you need an Electrician, give ElecTriLight a call. You won't be disappointed.
Always a pleasure ensuring people get what they pay for in work ethics and after sales warranty. Corners are never cut.
Robert is fantastic, we initially met him through a contractor finishing our basement, we now call him for all electrical work. He is meticulous in his work and happy to explain anything you have questions about.
Such a great review. Thank you for that and it has been a pleasure working for you since day one. A great client indeed!
Robert upgraded my electrical panel. He did a great job, easily reachable, was clean and fast.
I would definitely recommend Robert in the future.
Robert was great to work with from the beginning of my project to the end. He completed the electrical work for our basement renovation. He was quick to respond to any questions as well as when doing the work. He also came back a few times to fix a few pesky pot lights. I would highly recommend Robert to any one needing any form of electrical work done in their home.

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.

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.

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.
