5.0 Jori B. Norfolk, VA

My husband found James about two years ago and he and his team are reliable, professional, and a joy to work with. Many electricians are difficult to get in touch with, but James is always responsive and friendly. No matter the size of the job, he is willing to support and his prices are reasonable and his work is excellent. We're so glad we found TriUs Electric and we plan to continue working with James and his team for a long time.

I call and set an appointment for TriUS Electric and they never showed up and have yet to return my call to explain why or to reschedule. I will not call them again for any electric support. Very poor experience.


Excellent work. Traced down a mis-wiring that others couldn't find. Never gave up. Fixed to code a Safety issue on my pool equipment.


They were very professional,knowledgeable and courteous, and no job was too small for them like some contractors which is what I appreciated. I will definitely recommend them to family and friends. Thank you.

Electrician wired one outlet box with an on/off switch (he provided) into an outdoor outlet box (I provided) that I had already mounted. I had already put the input and output wires into the box. It took him about 10 minutes to connect the switch to the writes and screw in the outdoor weather proof cover I provided. He charged me $125.. You decide!

HomeAdvisor allows Service Professionals to post information about themselves and their business on their profile. HomeAdvisor does not review or verify the information representations set forth in those profiles as they are self-reported by the Service Professional.

HomeAdvisor verifies state-level licensing where applicable - note: some states require local or county level licensing and you should verify whether or not your pro is properly licensed.
To find more licensing information for your state, visit our Licensing Requirements page.

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.
