Review by in Auburn, CA
I would recommend him to my friends and family. Chris and his team did a great job. He was professional and did a great job in a timely manner. He gets a 5 star rating from me. I called him and he responded right away and replaced my power pole fast and coordinated with PG&E and the county inspector. He was Amazing and his pricing was fair!

Review by in Auburn, CA
I did not realize that the project would be in two phases. I had the check made out for a complete job in one days' time; however, the owner said that he did not have all the parts
Response by Gilwee Electric Company: Thank you for your review, Janice. As always, we appreciate all customer feedback to help us serve our clients with the utmost professionalism and integrity. Certainly as we have all experienced, hiccups can happen on a job from time to time. I think it's fair to mention that the other estimates you received recommended a TOTAL panel replacement rather than what was actually needed in the way of "updating your breakers" with new UL listed breakers. I'm glad we were able to resolve your flickering lights issue for less than half the cost of a full panel replacement. In all fairness, the specialty breaker we did not have on the service truck was difficult to procure considering it was after hours at the supply house. Which is why I was more than happy to return the next morning on Christmas Eve to resolve the delay in the installation. We will strive to do better next time!

Professional in every aspect of the job. Returned initial call promptly. Came out for estimate and provided written estimate via email the same day. Showed up for job on time. Encountered a few unexpected problems which were solved. Left the work area clean. He is union trained with experience. He answered all my questions as the job progressed. Long wait on qualified electricians so call in advance of your job.

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.
