Backup Electric’s bid was almost half of the other contractor. Very professional! I have told them I want them back for other electrical work to be done at s later date.

5 Stars across the board! Albert is prompt, experienced and very professional in every sense of the word. I recommend him without reservation and will not consider hiring anyone else next time I need an electrician. Hire Backup Electric, you won't regret it or find anyone fairer.

Review by in Pasadena, TX
Alberto is a very professional businessman that will take the time to explain every detail required for the work he does. I had a power surge damage my old underground service meter box and breaker panel so it required brand new upgraded panel and underground service meter. After completing work everything works better than before, and everything was done legally with permits. As for price he was the best value out of several estimates I had, and he will guarantee and warranty his work no problem. Highly recommend using Backup Electric for any electrical needs. Looking forward to doing more business with them in the future.

This company gave me an estimate over the phone according to my description. Did not waste time coming out only for me to find out that he was going to be out of my price range. I hired them, they came and installed two chandeliers, a ceiling fan and replace a light switch. They were in and out in short order.

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.

NOTE: Member service professional information confirmed as described above may change or expire over time; while HomeAdvisor attempts to maintain accurate and up-to-date information, and confirms changes when notified, we cannot guarantee that profile and screening information is accurate. Therefore, we recommend that before working with a service professional you verify that information presented is still current and/or acceptable to you.
