LOOK NO FURTHER FOR EXCELLENCE, 3/26/2015

Characters: 69 year old grandmother; Michael and Steven Only many thanks can be said to a company that hires true professionals who love their company. These young men installed damaged receptacle... and replaced my 42 yr old electrical panel making me feel so much safer. Both men were personable and professional and I will not hesitate to call and request them if I need any other electrical work done! (They know I do!)They are a credit to a company who takes professionalism seriously and makes their staff feel like family. I will recommend them to all my friends and neighbors. Again, thank you , Michael, Steven and Lightning Bug Electric!

great quality work, 3/18/2015

So somehow my first review got lost. Last week I called lightening bug electric to install a grounding system, and put wire my house for cable/internet (the main reason for my call). I had comcast... come the day before to try, but they are not the useful company to do work with (being gentle here), and decided I didnt want them touching my house, so had professionals come and do it. Michael C. came the day after I called, discussed with me the best plan of course for the grounding and coaxial for at least half and hour, and then got to work. He worked for almost 6 hours without stopping. He placed both the grounding rods, wire, and coaxial (RG6) through my garage, into the basement, and then ran the cable to the outlets I had specified. He was knowledgable, friendly, professional (put on booties), and did really clean and quality work. I would highly recommend michael and the company again, and will likely be using them again in the future. The price was steep, but I did not get quotes from other companies, and the workmanship seemed to match the price.

Fantastic Service

I called and Michael came out the same day! Was able to diagnose the problem, made sure we were safe, and we scheduled a repair appointment. Michael and Steven came out and did the necessary repairs. Both gentlemen were extremely professional, knowledgeable and courteous. These guys are my new permanent electricians!! They are terrific.

Great customer service

I had a space heater blow out the electricity in one room (including an outlet) late one evening. I found lightning bug on Kudzu and saw all of the great reviews. I called and they said they would call me first thing in the morning to let me know when they could be there. As promised, I received a call early that morning saying they would be there between 8 and 10 and would call 30 minutes before arrival. I got a call at 8:30am saying they were on the way. Jeremy (Reel) and Cody arrived, did an assessment, provided an estimated and had the repairs completed in about 30 minutes. They were honest and courteous and didn't try to pressure me into fixing something that was not necessary. It's nice when a company does what they say their going to do and doesn't try to sell you something you don't need. I would definitely use them again!

Very satisfied customer

The whole experience was great. Becca was courteous and scheduled me right away. Leo and Jaison arrived early. They gave me an estimate and started working. They were done in no time and even mounted the TV mount for me at no additional charge. I do think the pricing is a bit high based on an internet estimate for the area, but I would use them again.

Speedy and reliable

Had Lightening Bug come to house for a problem with our cabinet hockey puck lights (under mount). Luckily, they came to the house within an hour of my call. Michael C was my technician and did nice job explaining some alternatives and gave me the cost estimates for each. I found him very knowledgeable and polite. He was expeditious in his work and did the entire job in about an hour. Honestly, I did think the cost was extremely high, given the task - but in the end I felt they did nice job.

Professional Quality Service

Michael C was our technician for a small wiring job: the addition of six outlets in various rooms, one switched and one GFI'd. Michael was TOTALLY polite and professional and performed his work with dedication (long day!) and commitment. At the end, Michael left our home clean (well, as clean as he found it) and our environment greatly enhanced with the new outlets. Michael also suggested a whole house surge protector for us, explaining the benefits, and so we will likely be using Lightning Bug Electric in the near future for this work as well.

Competent and Polite

Leo and Cody first came to my home and gave me an estimate for some electrical work that needed to be done. An appointment time was set to do the work and they arrived on time. The work was done in a very professional and competent manner. Both men were also very courteous and helpful with any answering the questions I asked. I would definitely use this company again.

Very Good Experience

James and Steven arrived at my home on time. After I explained what I needed done, they told me what they would be doing and gave me a cost estimate. They were very thorough and courteous. After installing an outdoor light fixture, Steven even cleaned the glass for me. Both guys did a good job answering questions I had along the way. I would definitely recommend this company to others in need of a great electrician.

Take pride in their work

Had Lightning Bug Electric come out to take a look at some safety concerns and a few upgrades in my garage. Michael and Steven showed up right on time, listened attentively to my requests and ideas and then came up with a solution that was installed the same day. The best part was the pride Michael and Steven take in doing quality work. They care as much about their products and work that goes behinds the scenes (e.g. behind the walls; in the crawlspace) as they do for their work that is visible to the customer. I loved their attention to detail!

Great team, fantastic to work with!

This entire process couldn't have been any easier. The team at the office was super nice while talking to me about my problem and getting the service expert scheduled. The office called me the morning of my appointment to confirm and let me know Michael was on his way and 30 mins later he was at the door. Michael was knowledgable and very patient as I gave him my explanation of the problem and what I thought the cause was. Of course I was wrong but he figured it out in about 10 minutes. He was great to work with and really fast. He solved our problem and installed a whole house surge protector and was gone in little more than an hour. I highly recommend Lightning Bug Electric, and while I'm sure all the technicians are good be sure to ask for Michael C.

Excellent Service. Leo and Steve were on time, personable, professional and efficient. They did an excellent job and I would use them again for future electrical needs. Leo installed a cable outlet for us not too long ago and did an excellent job. He is our go-to electrician.

This is the second time I have used Lightning Bug. Michael was the service technician both times. He was on time, friendly, very professional, and he did a great job. I will definitely be calling them again.
