I received friendly professional service from Jim, the owner, who scheduled my breaker installation within three days of my call. The electrician was able to come a day earlier than expected and finished the job in record time. Apparently other people are fond of Century as well since the second time I called they were booked up for more than a week and I had to seek out another electrician.

Had an issue with a light fixture and broken wall dimmer.

Century had someone out the same day (within 4 hours). Their technician was funny/friendly and diagnosed/fixed the issue in about 25 minutes.

The bill was pricey given the small time-frame, but that's to be expected I guess.

I got super-efficient and professional service from Steve. A wiring job that I thought would take all afternoon took only like an hour! And since electricians charge us by time, that mean it's also at a great price! So, friendly, professional service, and everything works. Sounds like 5-star to me!
