Thanks so much for all you did to make this family safer today and the information about light bulbs.
It was good to meet you.
Best Elizabeth and family

I lost partial power to my house immediately following this winter’s blizzard, and that meant that I was without my heat, hot water and clothes dryer, among other inconveniences in the house. I immediately started lining up a few electricians and the power company to come out to my house to assess the cause of the problem so that I could get my heat back on. However, with every call and service appointment I received more and more bad news: that they would have to dig up my entire power line from my meter (two houses down at the end of the townhouse block) to the breaker in my home in order to replace the faulty line and restore my house to full power. That could mean digging up the yards of all three homes, including disrupting or destroying the decks, fences, grass, gardens and even concrete patios along the way. I was told that this would be an extremely complicated, lengthy, expensive, and difficult project (made even more difficult by the frozen ground that was covered in feet of snow at the time). Not only that, but nobody would even come out to start working until the snow had melted. The inside of my house had been frigid cold for days, and I had grown completely frustrated with the lack of customer service from the many folks I’d spoken to about my issue... Until I connected with Eric.
The same day that I first called Eric, he offered to swing by the house to take a look at the outside situation while I was at work. From that moment on, he was extremely communicative and patient with me as we scheduled the next handful of visits for him to come to the house and fully diagnose the problem (indeed, it was a broken line underground), isolate the fault, dig up and replace at the cause of the problem, return everything to its original condition, and even follow up by marking the affected lines. Not only was Eric knowledgeable, punctual, and extremely talented in his craft, but he was also friendly, thoughtful, empathetic, considerate, dedicated, and extremely efficient. He communicated with me every step of the way so I knew where we were in our multi-step process and what I could expect to come next. He was up front with me about the costs of the work and the time that it would take to complete it. And from start to finish I felt completely comfortable knowing that he was going to complete this project and get the heat back on in my house. The best part? He didn’t have to destroy all three yards after all! He dug only where necessary (thankfully in my yard and not either of my neighbors’!) and returned everything just as he found it.
Homeownership comes with its frustrations, unforeseen (and unbudgeted!) expenses and inconveniences – that’s a given. But for ANY future electrical issues or work that I need completed, Eric will be the first and only call. He is simply fantastic.

Truly excellent work, above code. J&G Electric is not your typical
handyman electrician - these are real pros who know how to properly design and install electrical systems. I am a demanding customer and I couldn't be happier with how the job came out. It was a commercial quality installation; not typical residential quality.
I had them run conductors from a main electrical room to a 200 amp sub-panel in a garage. Conductors ran through a crawl space and then through underground conduit that J&G installed in a trench. The job was very challenging and required J&G to dig a 40 foot long trench (by hand), lay 3” conduit in the trench, transplant multiple large bushes that were in the way, and even run a portion of the conduit under a brick patio. They also had to connect the conductors to the live electrical feed from the power company, without turning off the power. Excellent job.

The technician, Mr. Reyes, was well prepared, having brought more than one new fan to make sure he had the right size. The work was done within 2 hr, all debris was removed, I was shown both the elements of the installation when finished, and how to adjust the thermostat if needed. The price was as promoted, no add-ons, representing a nice discount compared to other services I searched. Mr. Reyes was very professional and focused on completing the work.

Mr. Bellosi was very thorough and professional. Hurricane Sandy damaged electric lines on the outside of our house. He gave us several options for repairing the damage. Mr. Bellosi also gave us a list of optional work to provide surge protection (we have frequent brief power outages in our area), lightning surge protection, hard-wired smoke detectors, GFI outlets in kitchen and bath and to remove and re-wire an existing sub-panel that was not “to code”. [...] Mr. Bellosi's attention to detail convinced us their work would be high quality and workmanlike. Our budget does not allow us to do all the work quoted at this time. We are re-thinking the scope of the work that must be done now. When we have a new ‘Work List’ we will give J&G an opportunity to submit another bid.

Imagine my surprise when I got the Lowes gift card in the thank you note sent from your company, wow. I want to thank you so much for your kind show of approval of my rating given to you for your excellent work and kindness to me on the phone. No company has ever been that generous and kind to me before. You know who I will call for all my electrical needs in the future from now on... thank you so much.

On July 5 we closed on the home you inspected for us. At the end we discovered that if we had closed one day later, Mary, the previous owner, would have been put into foreclosure. As it was, the agent and seller had been confirming with the bank on a daily basis that they would not proceed.
Our closing was the last date that they were willing to delay. Mary, a sweet, older lady with few resources and limited income would have lost her credit rating and only asset. However thanks to your quick assistance in helping us close, she is paying off her debts, conserving her new resources and looking for work that she can perform with her physical limitations.
On our behalf and on behalf of Mary, who will finish out her life a much better position. Thank you for your expertise and willingness to fit us into your busy schedule. It made a difference and you've made a difference.

We have been using J&G Electric since 2000 and have found them to be very proficient in property management, along with follow-up and follow through. All we have to do is pick up the phone and call J&G Electric for all of our electrical needs and their response is quick and efficient.

I have been using J&G Electric for over 15 years. They are honest, dependable, and neat. I had them install a new hood over my kitchen range, when I returned home from work the kitchen was spotless. You couldn't even tell there had been workmen in my home. I have referred J&G to many friends, all of whom have been quite satisfied. I hope to continue to enjoy their good service.

We have had the opportunity to work with J&G Electric for over 15 years with 3 different homes. It is so refreshing to have a contractor arrive on time, on the correct day, complete the work as agreed AND be neat, clean, pleasant and trustworthy. In this time of mediocre service, J&G is a real find. We are moving to Florida, I wish J&G would consider moving south. Superior service!
Dr. Mark Sugar
Joe, today was just another example of your expertise, knowledge and professionalism that I have experienced with you and your company for the past 20 years as our exclusive, and only, electrician. I called you yesterday and you were here today. Job done completely and thoroughly (as always) and like a friend was helping me out. I look forward to your continued personal and reliable service. Thank you!

Our Electrician, Eric, was simply wonderful. He was on time, professional, pleasant, helpful and informative. Actual charges for the work were exactly in line with his over the phone estimate. If Angie's List had a rating higher than a
5 we would give it

Eric is absolutely the best!! He is very personable, provides excellent service and has excellent customer-facing skills. After evaluating multiple reviews, I decided to contract J&G Electric. I called for an estimate and Eric was able to provide it over the phone. He also sent a written estimate and was very prompt in making additions and modifications. He was able to answer all my questions and provide solutions. Overall, I found him to be very reliable, honest, competent and without a doubt, would definitely contract him again, and recommend him to anyone in a heartbeat.
