Murtaugh Electric helped save the day. I purchased a couple of chandeliers from Costco that were oversized and Richard did a visit to see the area and came back on schedule soon after and installed both chandeliers with additional equipment to secure the chandeliers. Richard was fantastic to work with as he is very polite, patient and professional and I am very happy with the outcome of the chandelier installation.

5.0 Kelli S. Antioch, CA

I started with a small list and it turned into a big list because after I thought about what I wanted done I realized what I needed done. He explained clearly what I needed so I was able to go purchase the right fixtures and accessories. He quickly responded to my follow up inquiries. When I started adding to the list he assured me he could get everything done and he did. He s extremely good natured and patient but most importantly 100% knows what he s doing inside and out. In about 6 hours he removed and replaced 3 ceiling fixtures with 20 & 13 vaulted ceilings. Fixed a ceiling fan. Replaced an outdoor light and the related switch/outlet. Consulted on another motion light that saved me from an unnecessary installation. Installed an outdoor outlet with a nice cover that relieves any worries about rain. Everything I could ask for done in less than 7 hours at reasonable rates. I definitely recommend him for anything you need.

5.0 Renee L. Antioch, CA

Richard answered personally the first time I called. When I explained what I needed he made time to come over that same afternoon. He is polite, neat, and very personable. He didnâ  t have the correct part to fix the breaker permanently, but he made a temporary fix so I could use my dryer to prepare for vacation the next day. We made arrangements to complete the job when I returned later in the week. Richard contacted me before I was even back in town to come over the next day. He arrived promptly and completed the repair. I will refer him to anyone who asks and he will be my go to electrician from now on!

5.0 Vernon C. Brentwood, CA

Rick came in, explained the work to be done. I was having all of my light switches changed to auto on/off to save on my huge electric bill. He set right to work, didn t waste any time.. Job was done right, fair price. I will be using him for all my electrical work in the future, I would Personally recommend him to friends, and anyone needing a high quality Electrician.

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.
