What Our Customers Say
Our favorite part about our job is seeing the look of amazement on our customer’s faces when the work is done. When we turn the lights on, their faces light up too. And that’s what fuels us.
Prompt and Personal
We needed work on a buried electrical line and outlet in the backyard that the previous owner installed. The post supporting the outlet had rusted and fallen over.
Justin came out for the estimate and listened to our concerns about the location of the outlet. He made some suggestions on how to keep the line and protect the outlet from weather by moving it up against a shed.
He gave us a very competitive estimate. A few days later, they moved the outlet and also ran a line inside my shed. The portion of the lawn that was dug up was put back in place; like it was never pulled up. I definitely will go with Hopkins for my next electrical work.
Great working with Justin and his crew.
They took care of all my needs including updating all the plugs to GFI to current standards. He added a grounding rod also to bring my folks house up to new standards.
His crew was professional, worked hard and cleaned up.
I have used them several times and have been pleased with the work and BLESSED that he runs an honest, dependable company.
We have been so pleased with all the work Hopkins Electric has done at our home.
They have wired our outside shed, installed a light fixture on our patio and installed a transfer switch for our generator.
All of the jobs have been well done and the technicians were knowledgeable and polite. They are very dependable and reasonably priced.
Hopkins Electric will be our choice for every job.
