Very good and high quality

4.0 George L. Summit, NJ

Responds immediately, good follow up. He kept us apprised of what he was doing with work that needed to be done.


He did not follow up with an invoice for the work completed. I will send him 1099 at end of the year.

5.0 Linda M. Florham Park, NJ

he came and did the work a little on the high side for price but for the work he did it was great

5.0 Edward A. Plainfield, NJ

I needed a Transfer Switch for a portable generator installed, and Mike responded immediately! As a first time homeowner, finding an honest expert you can trust is difficult, but Mike has the proven experience and excellent communication skills to make any customer feel at ease. He kept to his word and did the job cleanly within the same day. For me, his price was absolutely fair. Mike will be my go-to for any electrical needs going forward. Thanks, Mike! -Eddie

4.0 David U. Bedminster, NJ

Mike did a good job . He was quick in doing the install. Had good ideas on fixture removal and fan replacement . Mike showed up on date of install and had to move it out 2 days as he had forgot he promised the install when he originally showed up . Also forgot his ladder after visiting the day before . Not to worry he used mine . He also was very good in explaining his work and allowing me to help him in any way.

5.0 Loy W. Livingston, NJ

Mike did a good job in installing the switch. Nice and clean.

5.0 Tom C. Chatham, NJ

First Wave was great. They installed recessed lighting in 6 rooms in my house and completely made it feel like new. Mike was professional, upfront, did clean work and was a pleasure to work with. Will be using them again in the near future.

5.0 Prasanna J. Basking Ridge, NJ

Michael was great and very responsive. We moved into a new house and needed a 240 volt dryer line installed. I called 5 electricians and none responded except Michael. He came and gave a reasonable estimate and a date in earnest to meet our needs. He finished the job as planned on time and with no hidden charges. Overall great experience.

5.0 John B. Short Hills, NJ

Hired First Wave to repair some low voltage outdoor lighting. Called them late Thursday and they returned my call right away. Mike showed up Friday morning and diagnosed the problem and completed the repair that day. Very professional and excellent quality. I would recommend them anytime.

HomeAdvisor allows Service Professionals to post information about themselves and their business on their profile. HomeAdvisor does not review or verify the information representations set forth in those profiles as they are self-reported by the Service Professional.

HomeAdvisor verifies state-level licensing where applicable - note: some states require local or county level licensing and you should verify whether or not your pro is properly licensed.

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.
