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

The work is yet to be done, but the representative was on time (appointment confirmed the day before by email and phone call). When here he was knowledgeable and I got my written quote within the hour. We will be hiring the company and I'll update my review afterward, however I'm extremely happy so far.

Gordon was respectful, courteous, well mannered and well dressed. He explained things in terms I could understand. He came to work, not much chatter. He was professional and friendly. Cleaned up when the job was finished.

Review by in Marcus Hook, PA
Gary, the service tech was very good and knowledgeable. Seems some of our issues are with Peco and not our interior wiring . He did what we needed and we are very pleased with this company. Office staff very helpful and considerate, too. Wish it was going to be as easy dealing with Peco as it was with Gen 3 Electric

They arrived within the two hour window estimated, didn’t destroy/damage anything in my home, AND fixed the unusual electrical issue in my ancient home all in one visit for what I consider to be a good price.

i inquired about an appointment one day. They came out the next day, gave an estimate, and completed the work. Very timely and professional. Not the lowest cost provider, but excellent work, service, and professionalism.

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.
