"We got a bid to add some 220V outlets to our garage for some shop equipment. I know the fundamentals of electrical stuff but that's about it. He came out and we were out of space on our panel and had a sub panel already, we were just out of room in our 1976 house with a 125AMP line. We ended up replacing the panel, line, meter adding the 220V outlets (2) and 4 canned lights. Tons of work, not a ton of money. The old panel looked like a birds nest from hell with wire leading now where and aluminum and copper lines wire nutted together. We got a new panel with 200AMP, cleaned up the lines, and he added the breakers at the meter. The panel is sweet, tons of room to grow. He was very good at explaining things, follow-up, customer service and reasonable prices. I would hire him again in a heartbeat."

"You will not find a better electrician than Thomas with Classic Electric.
We had our 1928 home updated to 200 amp service, as well as numerous other upgrades throughout our home. On his initial walkthrough, Thomas suggested several things we should do to receive a more accurate (and justifiable) estimate and he would come back to re-evaluate. So we labeled some problem outlets, created an opening for the attic, etc… No other electrician had bothered to suggest this approach which resulted in their vague and over-estimated numbers. But Thomas’ estimate was detailed, competitive and left us knowing exactly what to expect. The work was started the exact time and day that was promised. He started and finished each day like clockwork. Before leaving, he would clean up, remove all trash and walk through the progress for the day. The level of professionalism and courtesy was always at 10.
Aside from the stellar day-to-day experience, I would consider Thomas a sage and an artist when it comes to wiring. Knowing a bit about electrical myself, I had plenty of questions to ask and he was eager to share his 20 years of knowledge and experience. He would also explain where certain changes were being made, and that extra work was being added to ensure the job was not only finished as spec’d but that it met his high aesthetic and quality standards — quickly following with “I’m not charging extra, I just want this to be right.” Needless to say, everything was completed to our satisfaction and beyond. Thanks Thomas!"

"Thomas did an amazing job on our remodel job. The quote seemed high, but he guaranteed that it wouldn't change no matter what was discovered mid job. Our couple day job turned into a two week job, but the final result was better than we could have imagined. He worked effectively, communicated well, and worked around our crazy remodel schedule (we were our own general contractor). No matter the size of the project, I will definitely use Thomas and Classic Electric again."

"Thomas is the only electrician I will ever use for my current and future electrical projects. Not only did he provide prompt and efficient service but he always went the extra mile to ensure I was completely satisfied with the final result. I had numerous new switches and boxes installed with not a single piece of sheetrock damaged either upstairs or down. Thomas was the only electrician that guaranteed me he could do this and then delivered! I am an extremely satisfied customer."

"Awesome!! I called Classic Electric since they were local and had great reviews on here. They did not disappoint. I talked to Thomas on the phone to schedule an appointment. I needed a sump pump wired in under my house and also was having trouble with a GFI outlet. Thomas knew exactly what the problem was with the GFI when I told him what was wrong and explained how to fix it. Who does that?! I had called a few other electricians and gave them the same information. They were all two months out for an appointment and none of them gave any suggestions as to how I could fix the problem myself. Thomas saved me a couple hundred bucks over the phone! So I had him come out to wire up my sump pump. Thomas was punctual, professional, and extremely knowledgeable. He even cut me some slack when the job went from a single circuit to two due to him finding instructions that were mistakenly left under the house by the company that installed the pump. Thomas did an outstanding job and charged me a fair price. It's nice to know there are still guys out there who take pride in what they do and aren't just there for a "trash and dash" to make a quick buck. I will definitely be calling Classic Electric for any future electrical needs, and you should, as well!!"
