I have had Silver Fern (David) complete a few projects on our acreage over the past few years. He has always be very courteous, professional, and very meticulous in his performance and completion of these various projects. It is not often you run across tradesmen that take this much pride in their work and are very diligent in completing the work correctly and efficiently. I can honestly say he treated each project as if it were his own, making comments and suggestions that make sense and add class to the overall finished project. I am very confident in recommending Silver Fern to complete any project (from start to finish) you may have. I will have David back to do any of our future electrical projects.
Make sure when he gives you a quote, he writes down what you want done. He did not take any notes and he did 60% of what i asked of him. Gave me a quote that was 10% cheaper than someone else but that’s because the job he had in mind was 40% less than what i want.
His employee did a good job but both of them did not do a good job on the electrical panel. They rushed the job in the end because he had book to go to an other site at 6pm even after a whole day of work. Good thing i pitched during the day and told them no need to clean up anything, and i’d do it. Otherwise they’ll be late for the next job.
So basically, they installed less outlets than i asked for, ran 120v instead of 220v in some places when i specified what the intention was. Did a rushed job and the electrical panel instal and made it look ugly.
If you want to hire this company. Make sure he does a drawing and you agree to it. His employee was very friendly and it’s not his fault how disappointing the result was.

We required a relocation of our meter to our garage for the main panel, including an entirely new 200A service/panel. A feed was trenched to house and then routed through a crawl space to supply the house panel from the garage.
David is an exceptional electrician. He was very reliable and easy to work with and incredibly efficient. He provided detailed estimates that made sense since the work had to be broken down into phases. He arranged all the permits/inspections and was easy to communicate through to completion. I highly recommend David for any type of residential electrical project, big or small.
Please note: I was not asked to provide a reference on behalf of David and his company Silver Fern. That said, I wanted to share my experience.
As a current owner of a couple businesses and having worked in both the professional and service industry, I can share with you that without question or reservation David and his team were fantastic. From being on time, responsive, friendly and professional, I can not provide enough quality traits and values Silver Fern provides to families.
David was aware of my lack of experience dealing with trades, permits and specifically electrical issues and he guided me through the process always offering ideas and suggestions. He was fair, honest, trustworthy and overall a great person to work with. I would be more than happy to be a reference for David anytime.
It was great from the moment of meeting David to the completion of the install and inspection. David set clear timelines and estimates and came in under on both. Very clean workmanship and thoughtful answers to all of my questions. I would not hesitate in recommending Silver Fern for your electrical needs. I recommended David to my parents who had some electrical issues that we all thought would cost a lot of money and time to repair and require some drywall renovations. David solved the electrical issues, brought everything up to code and all of this without making a single hole in the ceiling or walls.
David was wonderful to work with. He was professional, offered a good price and went above and beyond. He was always on time and ready to help. We would hire him again in a second.
Dave communicated clearly, stayed on budget and got the work done when he had promised. He cleans up after himself and his work is tidy.
I would recommend Silver Fern to anyone.
We contacted David to give us a quote to upgrade our service in the garage from a 100 amp service to a 200 amp service. We also wanted him to take down the existing overhead line and conduit off the house as it was a real eye sore. Unlike some of the other contractors we contacted, none of them were willing to travel to Lake Isle. David provided a FREE quote and was right on time for our scheduled appointment. He was well under everyone else's quotes and LISTENED to what WE, the CUSTOMER wanted to achieve.
Once we chose David to do the work, he provided a detailed work scope and stayed right on schedule. On his first day He was here at 8am and didn't leave until 6:30pm. He kept me informed with permits, Fortis Alberta (who was also a pleasure to work with) and the inspection process. I was always kept " in the loop" of how the project was going and it's progress and we could call or text him any time we had questions or concerns. However, because he was so thorough in his communication with us we never felt the need to call or text him! The worksite was left spotless (which was important to us because we have small children) and David also came in under his initial quote. I also want to add that He did NOT charge us extra for travelling either.
Do yourself a favour and hire David for your next project. You won't be sorry. It's comforting to know there's still honest, hardworking, trustworthy contractors like David still around. We would be happy to provide a reference for you David.

Breaker kept blowing when dryer was on. David conducted circuit diagnosis to find the problem. Then old breaker has been replaced. No issues since.
Very professionally and quickly done job. The report was provided with the invoice. The job was a fair price. I will definitely use this company in the future and will recommend to it to others.
Silver Fern Electrical Ltd. was very professional and meticulous in the details of the installation of the generator. He was prompt, he was courteous and executed the job in a timely matter.
I would highly recommend and would not hesitate to use their services again.
