About 15 years ago Richard and his brother Steve installed a back-up generator for our house electrical since our neighborhood was subject to regular outages. They did a great job, but since they are really commercial contractors, I have not used them since. And I forgot about them until today.
We were having some work done around the house and power went out to a portion of the house. We suspected a bad breaker so we replaced it. Wrong answer. I called a residential electrician I have used previously and he said he could come on Monday morning (it's Saturday). I then called Richard because I had his card filed under electricians and did not know why.
He told me I might have lost a neutral somewhere in the circuit and it could be hard to find. He said he would come out and take a look. When he arrived we both realized how we knew each other. He trouble-shot the problem for 90 minutes, found the solution, which turned out to be easy but obscure.
While he doesn't normally do residential, he did me a HUGE favor and at an amazingly fair price.
I HIGHLY recommend this company if you have any need for commercial electrical work. Knowledgeable and VERY high integrity.(3/5/2011)
I have been using Scheidts Electric at The San Jose Museum of Art for close to 20 years. They are always helpful, professional, efficient and reasonably priced. They respond quickly and arrive when they are supposed to. They always do excellent work! Larry has been the electrician that has been coming out most recently. He is smart, a creative problem solver, friendly and willing to go above and beyond to make sure the job is done correctly. I hope to have many more years of being a satisfied customer.(5/30/2014 )
Had them come by for an estimate for some work at my house. They did a good job. Thanks.(3/25/2010)
