Testimonial

What customers are saying about Holmes Electric:


These guys go above and beyond to satisfy their customers. I called them, definitely on short notice, and they fit my reno work (2 whole days!) into their busy summer schedule to make sure my house was a safe place for my two small kids. Exposed wires and downed walls were no place for kids! Mike Holmes was extremely pleasant and courteous. The electrician he sent out, Mike, had been doing electrical for many many years and had the experience, knowledge, and efficiency I was hoping for to get the job done right, and FAST! Super friendly and extra sweet were an added bonus. He made sure he explained everything and that I was completely satisfied before he left. Pulling proper permits and arranging all the inspections was also an added bonus, so I didn’t have to worry about doing that either! Like I said, above and beyond. Much appreciated. I will be calling these guys again for any future electrical need for sure. Thanks Mike and Mike!

HOLMES ELECTRIC–Excellent customer service, quality workmanship, a fantastic team, honest, trustworthy and efficient.

We like to say “if you want the job done right then contact Mike Holmes”

… We couldn’t be happier with all the work that has been done.

Now when we have a question or need advice on some project we have [and there are many] we call Mike first– he is always there to help and has the knowledge to direct us to whomever we may need .

If you need electrical work then you MUST call Mike Holmes, you will be glad you did.

Thank you Mike for being there, we are so glad to know you and call you a friend.

 

Sincerely,

Al and Pat Burdick

Dear Mike,

Thank you very much for the inspection report! I was not aware that Mike had not charged me the full amount until I read this note; I have no problem paying for the remainder of the fee so please advise the best way to finish payment as you did quote me $150. I can mail a cheque to you?

Also, thank you for spending time discussing my home and attempting to make me feel better about my situation. It was a very kind gesture on your part which I appreciated. I look forward to meeting you in person!

Enjoy your trip to Maui!!

Sincerely,

Alison Sage

For the past 10 years the District of Lake Country Parks and Recreation Dept. and Municipal Facilities have used Holmes Electric, almost exclusively, for our electrical maintenance and upgrades to our facilities and parks. We have always found Mike and his staff to be very knowledgeable and skilled Electricians who have always given us good advice and have responded to our needs quickly with quality workmanship. This was particularly evident during the boom years when quality contractors were in short supply and often too busy to respond to small projects. It was during those times that Holmes Electric proved to us that customer service was as important to them as it was to us. We are confident when we call Holmes Electric that our projects, big or small, will be dealt with efficiently, professionally and cost effectively.

Mike Holmes has been my electrician for 5 years now at both the house and farm. During that time he has done residential and commercial work and always of excellent quality and completed in a timely fashion. I particularly commend Mike for his kindness last winter during a very cold period. During a power failure he spent almost his entire Sunday doing emergency work so that the numerous horses would still be able to have water in spite of the sub zero temperatures which had caused the water heaters to fail.That is going way above and beyond the call of duty.
Thanks again Mike

In the spring of 2008 we found ourselves in need of a General Contractor and all the trades associated. We called up Mike Holmes for an initial consultation on the scope of work. Right off Mike thought all the quotes coming in were a bit high and the Electrical Engineered design was way too much. He looked into the entire project for us and confronted the Electrical Engineer on our behalf. Mike arranged for a new design and we went from 600 amp service to 400 amp, saving us enormous costs and time. Mike then put in a bid which was $100k less than the other bids received and without all the extras. Mike delivered on his promise. The project got done on budget including extras without any injuries,etc.. His entire Contracting team headed up by Dan Cresswell, delivered a flawless product that we are proud to show all of our customers. Their employees were very professional and polite during the very challenging process and in fact helped us move in and setup our Hospital.They had many good ideas and suggestions and were a delight to work with during the entire renovation. Mike got all the inspections passed and setup a maintenance program for us to follow at the end of it all. I would highly recommend Mike’s business’s, both his Holmes Electric division and his General Contracting team. They steered us in the right direction and we came up smiling. Thanks again Mike for a great job done!!
