So John shows up in an absolutely trashed Grand Cherokee smelling of liquor. He closes some breakers that had tripped and reattached the dead front to my panel. When I called, I asked that someone be available to go up in the attic and find a junction box. (There were some wires crossed). John says it is too hot to go in the attic. Then John says he would rather knock out some sheetrock and run a new switch, than try to find out what the problem is. He says he can't do that today, but it will be another appointment so my total bill will be $400.00. I tell him I will pay him for today, but that I'll get a second opinion. He then tells me that today is $200!!! To close some breakers!!! I give him a credit card number, AND HE CHARGES ME FOR THE ENTIRE $400.00. I disputed the charges with AMEX. They have called and threatened me with lawyers, threatened to cut power to my house, etc. I am not sure if I have had a worse experience in my life. Another contractor fixed the whole issue for $160.00 and it was totally painless.

Michael is the landlord of a house in Dunwoody. Not a big jeep fan I take it. Funny how he told me he owned and sold one identical to it days prior. As far as the drinking that's a shot in the dark because I don't drink. This guy, is probably the worse customer of the century. Accused me of having the jeep as my personal vehicle which has company signs all over it. Called up had no power in 4 rooms and no lights in 4 rooms, we fixed that. Needed a panel cover put on, we did that, had some loose wiring in the panel we fixed that. He came out and personally gave us his credit card number for $400.00 Later that night gave us his credit card number again, 4 days after that gave us his credit card number again willingly, 5 days later our bank notifies us that the customer is not paying. We worked in the attic approximately 10 minutes at approx. 11Am ,I told him that the heat level was too hot in the attic and that it would need to be earlier in the morning for attic work, he gladly set up an appt. for 8AM and shook my hand and said everything was fine. We never mentioned tearing up sheetrock, that is not necessary. The $160.00 he claims to have paid another company, he told our manager that his buddy fixed it for free. He also seemed very drunk when speaking with slurred speech. This is what you call buyer's remorse. Unfortunately this customer thinks he is above the law and is not going to have to pay for services rendered he will explain his actions to a judge soon.
John came up bright and early (as scheduled) and gave me a quote that was half what the other "big names" electric companies here quoted me. He is officially my new electrician. Look no further, this guy offers the best relationship quality price. Furthermore, they guarantee their work for a full year.

John came to our house today to rework the wiring to our dryer. He diagnosed the problem quickly (after listening to me and NOT making me feel stupid!!), went to work, and was finished in less than an hour. The job actually cost much less than the initial estimate--I was very pleased with that! I also appreciate that Irish Electric has a one-year warranty on all of their work. I will definitely call John again if we need anything else done.

John of Irish Electric was punctual, professional, pleasant to deal with. I needed GFCI outlets on the kitchen counters and in 3 bathrooms, and had a couple of wiring problems in a 37 year old home that interfered with this. John figured out the wiring problems and corrected them, ran a new line and installed the GFCIs. I would recommend him to anyone. Thanks again, John and Irish Electric.

Electrician came about 40 mins late due to traffic. When he arrived it took him a couple of hours to diagnosis what exactly was the problem, but when he did, fixed it quickly. Basically I had fried some wires that ended up melting together. Once these "spots" were found, they were repaired and everything works fine now. He did also replace some other outlets that were faulty for one reason or another.... so that was a bonus. I was paying by the hour anyway. Overall, I would recommend them to anyone else.
