They could have fleeced me because I Live 60 miles from the project. They went in and fixed my problem for the minimum. I had the same work done 18 months ago and it cost 3 times more. Thank you, TJ.

Just two things that didn't happen as exactly planned - 1. they were running late so they arrived later than expected 2. the outlet color in white was unable - would have required more time

Review by in Hopatcong, NJ
Here's the quick version: They did a fantastic job on my 100 amp to 200 amp electric service upgrade. Great price. Quality work. Passed inspection. Easy to work with. They were available to work immediately. Showed up promptly. I seriously couldn't ask for more. Give TJ Electric your business. You won't regret it. Now the long version: I got in touch with TJ Electric this past March to upgrade my electrical service from 100 amps to 200 amps. They did a great job for a really great price. TJ Electric did it for 500 less than my "previous electrician" would do it for. (My previous electrician also never showed up in person to any jobs... he just sent his technicians who wired my 240V pool heater backwards and fried the circuit board. Needless to say, I will be using TJ Electric from now on, instead of the "previous" guy.) I did a lot of research on the technical details of my service upgrade before searching for an electrician. I had a spreadsheet with all the material costs of every component that was needed for the upgrade. Based on the number of hours worked, I can tell you that their labor rates are VERY competitive. The guy who came out was Joe Howard. Very nice guy. Seems really knowledgeable. When I initially emailed TJ electric, Joe called me back on the same day to discuss the project. I was able to text him some photos of the work site which helped him to write up his work proposal. Joe was also really good at texting me to coordinate what day and time to come over. I think an electrician who can use texts is very convenient. He came over in person to check out the work site, to take measurements, and to verify all the details of the job. On the day before the upgrade, he and two technicians came over for a couple hours to do some prep work. (Upgrading your electric service is a big deal.) When the big day finally came, he and his technicians arrived promptly in the morning and worked all day, only stopping for a lunch break. They were very grateful for some ice tea I brought out to them. At the end of the day, my new 200 amp service was up and running. Everything passed inspection and It's been 3 months and there has been no problems whatsoever. I am super happy with everything from start to finish. Anyway in summary, TJ Electric is great and if you need a job done, you should call them up or send them an email.

We appreciated their prompt response time. Joseph Howard, co-owner of TJ Electric, was polite and very helpful in finding where the problem was, then making the necessary repairs. I would recommend him, and plan to call him again for additional work.

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.
