Ivan was both capable and professional. We felt that he not only did what we asked him to do, but went above and beyond to ensure the job was done in the best way. Fine work from Ivan T. :) God Bless!read more

After an aborted attempt by my wife and I to install a wifi-enabled light switch in our new garage apartment in the Brentwood neighborhood, we decided to enlist the assistance of an expert to accomplish this task for us. Turning to the Nextdoor app for electrician suggestions, it appeared that Colvin Electric had many satisfied customers, and we made an appointment with them late on Thursday, September 5 - the earliest that they could accommodate us was between 11:00 and 2:00 on Monday, September 9, which was acceptable to us. After scheduling the appointment, we promptly received a confirmation e-mail.
On Monday at 2:00, we received a call from Michael, an office person, informing us that our service technician, Hayward, was delayed by complications with another customer's job, and he would arrive at my house by 3:30. I was somewhat disappointed, but Michael was very polite and apologetic, and I assured him that a 3:30 arrival would be acceptable. I immediately received a text message from Colvin Electric that introduced the technician that would be arriving, including a photo and a short biography. A Google map was also embedded in the text, showing where the technician was currently in relation to my house.
Hayward Smart, the Colvin technician, pulled into my driveway just after 3:00, introduced himself, listened carefully to what my electric issues were, and gave me a quote for the work. The price seemed fair, and we chatted while he worked - Hayward was neat, clean, intelligent and an engaging professional, and he certainly seemed to know his business well. He explained every step of what he was doing during the switch installation, and then afterward assisted me with setting up the app on my iPhone that controls the light switch functions. Everything worked perfectly. Hayward also rewired another 3-way light switch that had been problematic, and fixed that as well.
We were mightily impressed with Colvin Electric, and I would not hesitate to recommend this fine company to anyone. I intend to use them for any future electrical matters - they have earned a permanent place in my Contacts app.
Thanks Hayward and Colvin Electric!read more
Colvin electric provided a great experience from the estimate through to completing the job without any surprises or additions. I needed to have a 240 volt line and outlet installed to my garage. Hayward arrived on time and was accommodating for my family's morning schedule. He completed the work efficiently and the whole installation looks great. Hayward also left me some extra line to handle any future upgrades I may need neatly tucked up. The new line has been working flawlessly
Colvin provided updates by text message and email when your electrician is on his way with a photo so you know who to expect. The quote I received was reasonable and much better than the first quote I was given from someone else.read more
Outstanding service! The electrician Mr. Hayward was on time and within minutes he hit a reset button on my arc breaker and it fixed my electricity problem, to my bedroom outlets. He said it was no charge as he did not have to replace it. He said as a first time caller I would not be charged for the visit because no real work was performed. Future calls would cost a 49 dollar charge for coming out to inspect the problem. If work needs to be performed the 49 dollars would go towards the job. I will use them for sure in the future. It's been years since someone was that honest with me. He could of easily taken me for big bucks. Thanks!read more
The tech that came out was very nice and knew his stuff. He found that my
outdoor ceiling fan was killing my circuit breakers. He disconnected and took it down. No more thrown breaker. I would recommend Colvin Electric to others.read more
Wednesday morning May 15, 2019 I experienced major uncertainty about the unknown for getting electric power back into my house using all of the proper methods. I called Colvin Electric Company. My call was answered by Michael Galvez. He was going to be able to come over the next morning to look at the situation my electric breakers were in and discern the problem. An opening for Michael happened and he called with a request to come today, before my dental appointment. I agreed if it was in time so I could make the dental appointment on time.
I was in a hurry as I had a dental appointment in about an hour. Michael arrived, very outgoing, confident and friendly. We looked at the breaker junction box as I explained most of the lights in the house were either "blinking" or did work at all. In the matter of 30 minutes or less, Michael had pointed out the process of electricity flow, which components work not working, what was weathered so badly replacement was required.
Summarize of the pressure time due to my upcoming dental appointment, Michael displayed three choices on his handheld digital unit that had sets of numbers with details of key cost components for each choice.
Further summary - I had years of experience in electronics and was very comfortable with Michael's explanation including cost, comfort, and payback.
I felt comfortable then and now, seven hours later, I still feel like I made a great decision and made a great choice.
Thank you Michael for your meaningful way of presentation and understanding. Tomorrow will be an exciting day for my wife and I.
