Business Overview

How We Got Started

I chose to work in this industry because Generation 3 Electric has been servicing the electrical needs of the Philadelphia metro area for three generations. Gen3 is your friendly neighborhood electrician. My Father apprenticed to his Father—and I apprenticed to mine, repeating an invaluable tradition of child labor and a great place to learn a trade. Beginning at the age of 13, I worked with my dad every weekend and summer vacation in homes throughout Philadelphia repairing and rewiring all levels of residential electrical systems. Studying electrical engineering and earning a degree in architecture has given me a solid advantage in solving the myriad of residential electrical problems. Generation 3 Electrical, Inc. takes pride in every job—building confidence by how we do things—by being prompt, thorough and leaving every job site finished and clean..

We started in this industry in 2000.

We describe our business as Family owned and operated

Review by in Philadelphia, PA
I needed a Saturday appointment I was able to go on the website book my appointment that was convenient for me. I received a call the day before to remind of the appointment, any questions I had was answered. Also my time was between 8am-10am & the Techs arrival time was 8:45 am with a call 20 mins before arrival. Osiris was awesome he taught me things that I need to look out for in the future & he was very knowledgeable about the service he was providing for me. Thanks Gen3

Very prompt, and knowledgable about Smart Home technology. Showed up on time and completed a wide range of electrical projects the same day. Had an incident with our carpet but proactively pointed it out and initiated a solution immediately, very trustworthy. I did find their cost on the higher side compared to others, but the service was priced fairly

Gen 3 was a pleasure to work with in every way. Staff in the office were easy to reach and promptly scheduled the appointment and the work. The estimate was reasonable and detailed. Brian and Osiris were professional and gave me confidence that they knew what they were doing. They carefully patched the ceiling after installing recessed lighting and did a thorough cleanup. I'm very happy with their work and would hire them again.

The young man who did the work was extremely polite and helpful. I had prearranged for the color of the outlet being replaced and I did not properly describe the color and he brought the wrong one. He actually drove over to the local Home Depot to get the right color. He also did a light switch replacement for us as well. Showed up on time.

The two gentlemen were very professional,and courteous and worked at a proficient pace,completing the (3) complicated service request by early afternoon, to which I commend them. I will be using Gen3 Electric in the near future,and would most certainly recommend this company to others.

Seal of Approval

What is the screening process that Service Professionals go through in order to become members of the HomeAdvisor network?

  1. Verify Trade License
    HomeAdvisor checks to see if the business carries the appropriate state-level license.
  2. Verify Insurance
    As a part of our screening process, we encourage professionals to carry general liability insurance. We require coverage for hundreds of services.
  3. Verification of State Business Filings
    For business types that require a Secretary of State filing, we confirm that the business is in good standing in the state in which it is located.
  4. Criminal Records Search
    HomeAdvisor uses 3rd party data sources to conduct a criminal search for any relevant criminal activity associated with the owner/principal of the business.
  5. Sex Offender Search
    We confirm that the owner/principal is not listed on the official state Sex Offender web site in the state in which the owner/principal of the company is located.
  6. Bankruptcy Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the history of the principal/owner of the business for bankruptcy filings by or against them.
  7. Legal Search for Civil Judgments
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for state level civil legal judgments entered against them.
  8. Liens Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for liens placed against them.
  9. Identity Verification (SSN)
    HomeAdvisor verifies the social security number(s) of the owner/principal for identity check purposes. This check applies primarily to smaller business entities.
  10. Identity Verification (Reverse Phone Lookup)
    We conduct a reverse business phone lookup to identify records matching the phone number information provided by the business.
