Robert was referred to me by a neighbour and I couldn't be happier with the work that was completed. In addition to specific things I needed done, Robert also pointed out some safety concerns that he noticed. I appreciated his honesty and won't hesitate to call him again as we update the house. I can't really comment on budget as I had no idea what to expect because of the various jobs I needed done. Electrical work, especially in a house with aluminum wiring, is not something I am willing to cut corners on so I didn't begrudge the cost at all.
Very pleased to help you repair some of the issues you had. Thank you for the great review!
My electrical panel was upgraded and two kilns were installed. The work was complex and difficult, and Robert was very considerate and creative, and he treated the work with confidence and utmost professionalism. He always put himself in the customer's perspective, and did his best to come up with most rational solutions. If I were to do another electrical work, it will be entrusted to Robert again. He is definitely a trust worthy business partner.
Upgrading your home service equipment to 200 amps and installing 2 new pottery kilns is not something done everyday in homes and garages, but everyone loves a challenge with their career and this one worked out fantastic. Hope you are successful in the pottery sales! Evening adding new ductwork for the ventilation wasn't so tough.
We had a badly pitted fuse panel that was arcing. I contacted Electrilight using the web site. Robert Emailed me back the same day, after looking at the pics I sent him he gave me a quote and worked us into his Schedule to have the work done very quickly. Electrilight took care of all the permits, he stuck to the quote he gave us. The work was done at the time he said it would be done, Robert cleaned up and took away all the old stuff.
We are very happy with the job that was done and would recommend Electrilight to anyone.
If we ever need any other electrical work done I wouldn't hesitate to get in touch with Robert again.
Even though your father was an electrician and able to do many updates on your wiring, codes change so frequently that it is always nice to sleep at night knowing your new electrical panel has met code requirements for 2017, it has been a pleasure working for you.
Robert always communicates with me and deals with my electrical requirements in a quick, professional manner. He is very knowledgeable and goes above and beyond to make things right. I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending him and have done so several times.
I am very happy you invited me to be responsible for the electrical on that massive garage you built with all the equipment inside. Hoists, air compressors, LED lighting, security system, sub panels, exterior lights....the list goes on.
So impressed by the professionalism, ease of communication and quality of work that I've already recommended Electrilight to two friends who have subsequently hired you as well and are equally thrilled! :)
Thank you Katherine for a great review, it has been a pleasure helping you with the small jobs you requested.
Rob was fantastic. We had used him before for some electrical work in our last home, and he was the first and only electrician we contacted when we purchased our new home and installed our hot tub. He is organized, tidy, and extremely professional. I would highly recommend him and we will definitely be calling him again when we need more electrical work completed.
All clients have a right to a professional electrical contractor who cares about your home as if it were our own. Thank you for the great review and see you again!
Robert helped us enormously to inspect our house’s electrical safety, investigate and correct wiring problems and replace a bathroom fan. The work done resolved all the issues and exceeded our expectations. Throughout the process, Robert noticed several problems with our electrical configuration which he fixed as part of his service. It is obvious that Robert takes a great deal of pride in his work.
Robert offered several tips on renovation work in general. We appreciate the recommendations to save on our electrical bill, attic insulation requirements, security camera installation, electrical filters and surge protectors.
Robert has been professional and prompt. He was always accurate with his time and cost estimates. We highly recommend Electrilight for your electrical work. Robert will provide service that you can trust.
It has been great working for you and helping you resolve some of those builder faults that are so common in many homes.
Robert came over to my home to install a light fixture and do some odd jobs that I needed done to my home. I found Robert to be such an honest person. He told me what I needed, what was not required and did not try to upsell me or persuade me to have work done that I didn't need. One of the most professional electricians I've ever met. I wouldn't hesitate to have him back nor would I hesitate to recommend him to others.
Thanks Robert :)
A great pleasure to help you. I am not in the business of selling, I am in the business of helping people and make them safe in the place they, and their families, sleep at night.
Rob upgraded the main panel in my home from 100 Amps to 200 Amps. As an Engineer who has seen a lot of electrical work over the years, both good and bad, I would rate his workmanship amongst the best I have seen.
The job was completed the day is was scheduled, at the price quoted, all garbage was taken away and the area was clean up afterwords.
Rob is a professional. He conducts himself accordingly. Since then, he has worked at my mother's home and has become the only electrician I recommend to friends and neighbors.
Thank you for the great review Tom, I do my best to ensure customers get what they pay for. Anyone can do just ok work, but it takes a Trusted Pro to give 100%.
Happy New Year!
This is the second time that I have used Robert to do electrical work at my home.
The work completed was excellent and Robert's advice about the work was very practical.
Robert called in advance to let me know what day and time that he would arrive to do the work. He always showed up on time and the workplace was always left spotless.
Would highly recommend Robert - excellent
There are certain things that set a professional standard to be working in peoples homes, I feel this is one of the most important "to leave someones home in the same condition I arrived there in". Happy New Year!

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.
