HIGHLY Recommended – I've been through a lot of contractors -- and a handful of electricians -- and I've never come across a more reliable and professional set of guys.
First, they're punctual -- they actually show up when they say they will! This was unprecedented for me.
Second, they're courteous -- they even put on little booties as soon as they step into your house, so as not to drag dirt inside. That's a small thing, for sure, but significant.
And finally, they go above and beyond. Because of some shoddy construction, we had to have these guys back on several occasions to do the same job, and they come without complaint or extra cost.
Top notch. Give them a shot -- I challenge you to find better.
NOT Recommended. – Not recommended,. They are almost 50% higher than the company we used and they were not equipped to do the job needed that day. I needed emergency work and I had no faith in the overpriced technician they sent . Don't waste your time .
Excellent and reliable – I have now used G3 Electric twice, and am extremely happy with the results both times. G3 rewired our entire house before we moved in two years ago. Our 100 year-old house had old knob-and tube wiring which was in a dangerous condition. G3 rewired our entire house from top to bottom - a huge job, including a new circuit breaker box in the basement. They completed this extremely complex job in just one week, knowing we were ready to move in. We hired them because they are the best and they came through for us. Today, G3 came out and put up a custom ceiling fan for us. They arrived on time, were completely pleasant and professional, and finished the whole job in just 1/2 hour. We highly recommend these guys - they do excellent work and are highly professional. They also adhere to their guaranteed work. As far as the other reviews here complaining about the price - it's true G3 is not the cheapest contractor, but you get what you pay for. Personally, I would rather pay a little more for excellent electrical work. Those other "cheap" contractors are generally unlicensed and unreliable - and who wants to take a chance with your home's wiring? You get what you pay for, and I completely recommend G3 electric.
sloppy work very high prices read this before using them – the company came out and put in lines for my big screen tv. they used silver pipes on my brick wall in my living room ..it looks like crap. trhey charged us $1365 . I had another company out to see if it was right because it looked so bad and they laughed at it and said it was like a commercial or restaurant job. They showed me flat pipe and said they could paint it t match , it was beige in color .I was so impressed with them I had them redo the work that generation 3 did for under $400 and it looks great . I would not recommend Generation 3 .
Overpriced , way overpriced – Overpriced and outrageous. I got 4 estimates on rewiring a home , 1 was $ 8000. 1 was 9500. , another was 11,000 ..they wanted to charge me $34,000 !!! Thats TRIPLE what everyone else wanted . I suggest calling a fairly priced company because they are so far out of the ballpark .
Complete Professionals – Generation recently completed a major update to the electrical system in my aged center city house. The work included a new breaker panel, new circuits, and diagnosis and repair of a variety of issues from simple receptacles to a complete tracing of all of the circuits in the house.
Todd was supervisor on the job and did a terrific job. He carefully reviewed all of the work done by the 3 other workers who came to the house (one of whom is a principal of the company).
They showed up when they said they would, worked within the quotes for the various parts of the project and treated my wife and I, as well as each other, with respect and good humor.
When new issue arose, Todd made sure that I understood the issue and the choices of solutions.
They cleaned up after themselves and left us delighted with the quality of their work.
Having spent quite a few years purchasing goods and services as part of my work responsibilities, I am better positioned than many homeowners to judge their work.
I can wholeheartedly recommend Generation 3 to anyone needing their services and their professional approach to their trade.
Real Pros – I needed to have some of the knob and tube wiring in my old house replaced with updated wiring prior to insulating the attic. I got cheaper bids from other electricians, but was really impressed when Mike from Generation 3 showed up. Mike was punctual, professional, confident and informed. His bid wasn't the lowest, but you get what you pay for.
Generation 3 often has coupons in the University City Review.
Great electricians – I've been using Generation 3 for years -- since I bought my house in 2003. They specialize in the small jobs that most electricians sniff at. They generally take care of the project the same day if they can get the parts. While their rates are a tad high, they have always been incredibly reliable, professional, and they get the job done well. On top of that, they're all just genuinely friendly folks, easy to deal with. What puts them over the top is their commitment to making the customer happy. Recently I had a problem with some kitchen fixtures they had installed years ago that were starting to fail. They came and took care of the fixtures and made sure I was happy with the final result. Thank you Bill, Chad, Mike, and all the other good people at G3E!!
Totally professional, reliable & fair – Have used Gen3 for several years now - I've got a 100-yr+ house so something's always going wrong! Anyway, I can always count on Gen3 for showing up when they say they will, doing a great job while they're here and explaining everything in non-technical language so I understand the problems and the solutions. Their rates are good too. I highly recommend them.
No need to look any further. Good,I'm sorry Great electrician found here! – Wow! Generation 3 actually came on time. Most contractors show up way late or not even at all.
We got a call the day before of approximate time and then an hour before they came out
Work was very professional and the help is very courteous and they clean up nicely.
Would recommend to anyone who needs a good electrician!
