Stay Away, 10/17/2013

In 2010 we had them replace our circuit breaker unit and they never pulled permits, never got it inspected up to code, and never labeled anything. I was under the assumption they would make sure... everything was up to code and correct after the job. I was very wrong. We had home inspectors come this year when our house was getting ready to be sold and they brought it to our attention it did not look to be up to code. We were never told that we had to pay for permits, which we would have done if Murphy Family Electric pulled them in the first place. I called Sean at Murphy Family Electric and asked if he could come out and fix his work which he should have done correctly. Sean played cat and mouse with me over a couple days and even went so far as to change his mind several times about being there when the inspector from the Town of Herndon would be at my house (wonder why?). He finally responded but not until I told him I would resort to legal action. So in the past 3+ years my family and I have been living with our electrical box not up to code. You know what would happen if a fire or something catastrophic were to happen in that situation? I do. I would not be able to be have insurance pay for anything because it was not up to code. No reimbursement or legal recourse because the work was not up to code. That my friends is Murp

Great Service!, 5/31/2012

Called Murphy Family Electric to come out on a Sat and had someone there within a couple hours. The tech. arrived, assessed the issue and after some testing; advised that the panel needed replaced. ... The tech. escorted me to three different home improvement centers to obtain all the parts needed to do a panel replacement. He worked about ten hours, up until it was too dark to safely work anymore. He showed up early the next morning and worked all day until we had power. The tech. and office staff was qualified, professional and friendly. I would call on them again if I need electrical work done. Thank you for the great service.

Impressed!

After being stood up by various other contractors, Murphys electrician showed up as scheduled and ON TIME, 7am! I couldn't believe it. Work was done quickly and professionally, and at a fair rate. Highly recommended!

Stop searching - Murphy Electricians are fantastic

After selling our home and in need of various electrical repairs and replacements, we decided on Murphy's based on their 5-star reviews - excellent work and reasonable. Living in another part of the country and not able to be there, we wanted someone to coordinate by phone with my husband while doing the variety of work required. Sean and his staff were terrific to deal with. Courteous, on-time, perfect communication and an excellent electritian with Dave. They were a dream team all around - plus fairly priced. Even though we're no longer in Va, I'm letting our neighbors know of the Murphy Family Electritians. In this day and age, they are a real discovery!

The Best!

David the electrician was excellent. He expertly installed 4 bathroom ceiling ventilation fans and 2 dimmers on light switches. Not only was the price less than other quotes but the job was completed on the same day I called for service. Murphy Family Electric is in my data base for all future electric service needs. My neighbors now know about the excellent job Murphy's did.

Great Company

Great service and fair prices! There are other companies that I have used that charge way too much!!! Not Murphy Family Electric. We feel very fortunate to have such a great company to call on for our rental properties. We know that the job will be done promptly and professionally, which gives us peace of mind since we live far away.

Murphy Family Saved My Home!

I had known for a long while that if I didn't do something about my home's failing electrical problems then I just may end up with a major catastrophe on my hands. So when I called Murphy Family Electric to come out and look at it, I was astounded to find out that the job wasn't going to be that much of a financial burden after all. I actually hired them on the spot! The service and quality of work ended up being one of the easiest and cost friendly projects I had ever hired out. This company is truly a family oriented, honest and hard-working company and I will always call on them in the future. I even recommend them to everyone who mentions wanting an Electrician to do the Right Job the First time!

No job is too complicated

Murphy Family Electric was a great find! They have compentant employees who were professional & courteous. And most importantly, they were able to complete a complicated job in an old commerical building meeting all of our special needs, and completing the job accurately and timely. 2 other contractors said 'no' to the job, and 1 other contractor wanted 3x the cost. Glad we went with Murphy's group.
