Tom was quick to respond to my inquiry on Home Advisor and provided an estimate a few days later. The work was completed shortly thereafter. The staff reviewed the plan with me and explained the process. Highly recommend Marlin Electrical!

The work they did was fine but they did not supply a requested estimate for the work and he charged me much more than I expected. And when I looked at what the parts cost vs what he charged me it appears that he overcharged me by double. The web site says "free estimate" but he didn't give me one. He said it would not be "just labor and just parts", making me think it would not be much, but I was shocked at the bill. It was much higher than expected. He did upgrades I did NOT ask for or approve. He said they will need to be changed if I sold my house, and I did not tell him to do the upgrade. I said I wanted it to be as inexpensive as possible and the bill was not inexpensive.
Response by Marlin Electric, LLC: I am sorry but nothing here resembles the truth. When the client called, I stated clearly that work of this type is on a time and material basis. I specifically asked which rooms would be worked on, because the State of Connecticut code requires that certain rooms be installed with arc fault devices and breakers. Nothing here is an "UPGRADE", it is state code. When we arrived at the house, her daughter and husband were present and the daughter remained during out entire service stay. All work was to be on the first floor, but the client requested 2 switches be replaced on the second, which we did not even bill for. Inadvertently, we missed an outlet in a non used guest bedroom. The client called on Saturday of the Labor Day weekend, and even though it was not an emergency and could have waited until Tuesday after the holiday, we dispatched a technician and completed the room and charged ONLY for the part, NO labor charge for any inconvenience. As far as parts, for 9 devices and breakers for the electrical panel, parts came to approximately $50 per device. I do not know where the client got a number of "by double" but it definitely not even close to that. Most likely looking at incorrect parts online or omitting the breakers. The client never stated anything as far as "inexpensive as possible" and received quality, safe and up to code work. We wished her well with her next electrician as she stated she would no longer use our company. Somehow I don't think the new one will be her last either!

I had a quick response, came right out and were gone within an hour. I even sent him some photos over the phone and they saw it and everything was fine

He said the cable spliter to my phone was defective, but because he didn't have a replacement I had to go to Home Depot to pick up the $5 item which I don't know how to install. The guy charged me $150 for a worthless visit.

Knowledgeable, dependable and amiable staff. It is a big plus that Tom Sherwood always answers the call. Made a lot of difference! Decent company to deal with.

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.
