Best in Cobb County and beyond, 8/06/2015

August 5, I had Leo and Jaison out to the house for some electrical work. They were fantastic, neat and clean, cleaned as they went from task to task, no do-overs, answered all my wife's questions... (and I am sure there were many). Recommend them for all jobs, large or small.

Polite/Courteous and job well done!

During holiday weekend, we had issues with smokes detectors going off nonstop in our house even after batteries were changed. Larry from Lightning Bug Electric came out and replaced all the detectors ( they were over 10 year old)in a timely manner and all is finally quiet again.

DO NOT USE!!

Worst customer service ever!!! Do not use Lightning Bug Electric! The electrician lied, oversold and didn't actually solve the problem. Completely dishonest, and refused to solve or even attempt to fix a problem after the issue was "fixed" the day before. The management, call center and electrician do not communicate because when I called about the problem, they dismissed it to the duty of the electrician. Definitely unprofessional. In addition, after our electrical issue was 'fixed' and the next day we had issues, we called the management, where they told us that everyone was 'booked solid' for a week. After being oversold and under-delivered on the first trip, and finally got them back out to fix the issue as discussed, we told them that we would not be paying them as they have already ate into our pockets. After previously "fixing" our fixture by rewiring and finding wiring issues, the electrician said that the company does not rewire of any sort. So what's the beef? When he came out and discussed the issue with us, he said that he even gave us a "deal" of not putting the labor on the receipt after selling us more BS. We didn't want the other add ons, we wanted our fixture fixed! After they came out and told us they'd be charging us...we told them to leave and that we'd probably do a better job ourselves. Guess what we did?!

fantastic service quick and no surprises

Lightning Bug Electric and specifically Bobby and Jaison did a fantastic job on a number of problems I had. They were informative, keeping me in the loop. They did what they said they would do and faster than I thought possible. I give them a 10 out of 10 and will certainly use them again.

Professional and saved the day

I am selling my house and the inspection was same day as the panel upgrade. I was so stressed about having to leave for inspection and the electricians did a great job of working around this. Top notch techs, so glad I went with this company, will recommend and use again

Customer Satisfaction is #1

Everyone within the company is committed to customer satisfaction. This is my third experience with LBE and both Leo and Cody reflected the values that I come to expect. I will continue to recommend them to neighbors and friends. Ken H.

good work, professional & honest

This was the first time we used an electrician since moving to Atlanta. We wanted a surge protector installed in my parents' townhome. Very easy transaction. I used Kudzu to find Lightning Bug Electric through reviews (thanks, again, fellow reviewers)--this was again a great call. Liked the emphasis on a team lead being a master electrician. I called and found out that they did do work in my parents' neck of the woods. They made it an easy call. I got a reminder call a couple of days ahead. We got Bobby--who arrived right on time. My parents really liked him alot. He was patient with them: took the time that was needed to diagnose and fix the electrical issues that needed to be addressed. In addition to the work we requested (the installation of a surge protector), he also found 2 circuit breakers needed to be replaced and showed my parents that you could tell this was the case from the fact that they were warm to the touch. He wasn't in a hurry to get out of there--Bobby took his time. And my parents felt he was an honest person and wasn't trying to find any additional (unneeded) work to pad the bill. He explained everything that was needed and didn't lobby for anything else to be done. I would definitely call upon Lightning Bug Electric again (and hope to get Bobby)! They also offer senior/military discounts, which is really appreciated.

Got what I paid for

Had a bedroom with no electric, trouble shot as far as I could then called Lightning Bug. Two technicians arrived and I informed them of the problem. They let me know the price to fix the problem and then proceeded to troubleshoot. With in just over 20 minutes they concluded a loose wire in the adjoining bedroom was the issue. There were no high tech tools used just a circuit tester and experience.They traced the issue to a ceiling fan wire and sure enough there it was, a wire that had come loose from the wire nut. Once connected the dead bedroom came on. I was impressed with both technicians ability to find something that I would not have found otherwise. The price was a little more than I was hoping to spend but they had a coupon available which helped.They also provided information of other items that may need attention in the future and the price of those services.I will use Lightning Bug in the future for any electrical needs.

Professional and great service

Tim came out quickly to diagnose a problem with our power cutting out and found a bad main house breaker that needed replaced. They ordered the part right away and even bumped up our appointment a day early because the bad breaker was tripping. James did the install and had it replaced with minimal down time. He also ran an extra outlet in our basement and did a pro job on that too, cleaned up like there was never any work done, just the new dedicated outlet. Would definitely recommend these guys.

Superb Customer Service

Tim's industry knowledge is exceptional. He did a superb job figuring out and coordinating a complicated project. His patience was greatly appreciated. I should mention that we bid this job out to several vendors. Surprisingly, all bids were within a few dollars of each other. We made our decision not based on price but on the value that Tim's experience brought to the project. He undoubtedly saved us future headaches because of his foresight. Leo led the install team and did a FANTASTIC job! He motivated his team to work hard and fast to meet our city inspector's deadline. I highly recommend Lightning Bug. Tim, Leo, Jaison and Cody, much thanks for a job very well done!

If you're reading this, call now and ask for James

I've had many contractors at my properties and this firm is professional from start to finish. The experience started with James giving a warm smile and a handshake, putting booties on and wasting no time getting to diagnostics. He was very professional and courteous and informed me of the process along the way. I had a somewhat complex problem and he had no problem identifying and fixing, making sure everything was done right and up to code. They will be my go to electricians in Atlanta from now on.

Quick and Courteous

Michael and Steven came right on time to the house and were very well presented. They were nice and clear and straightforward with how they did their job and what the costs were. They fully understand how to do their work and did it much faster than I was expecting them to so I was able to go on with my plans the rest of the day. Will always come back to use this company 5/5!

Very detailed in their service.

Every attention to detail was given to the issues we had. Much care was taken to protect the hardwood floor. The technician explained all about what he found and the option to repair or replace. He verified with me that everything we had called about was taken care of.
