“Not Recommended”

D & D Electric Enterprises, Inc.
When my whole-house attic fan died, a friend recommended D&D. Initially I was very pleased with their work. Gary, the owner, discovered defective wiring in a number of locations, as well as signs of past electrical fires in breaker boxes, all of which he and his assistants, Scott & Mic, fixed to my satisfaction. He also suggested rewiring the house to bring it up to code. I had the impression that this is something I would have to do should I wish to sell my house in the future (which I later learned isn't true). I asked him about how much this would cost and he said he had recently rewired a house for $30,000, implying mine would cost something similar. As things turned out just to have 2/3 of my basement done was $29,000.

I spent more than I could afford because when he rewired a room I would lose power in another part of the house, necessitating an additional cost to retrieve that power. I'm still missing the function of some lights and outlets. As to our replacement fan, Gary installed one that was vastly overpowered, inappropriate for the size of the opening through which the fan exhausted, a mistake a master electrician should not have made. We had to do our own research to convince Gary of this. After considerable push-back, Gary realized we were right and replaced it (at an additional cost) with a fan with which we are pleased.

I went out of town, leaving my daughter with a check to pay them when the last job (the basement) was finished. Upon my return I discovered that their work in the basement was incomplete. Old fixtures and ceiling wires had not been removed. Wood chips and debris were still on the floor. In addition, two "new" ceiling fixtures had chipped housing while another ceiling fixture was obviously second hand. How could they have in good conscience told my daughter they'd finished the job and collected the pay check when my basement looked like this?

Scott did return (after I complained) to address these problems, but these defective fixtures should never have been installed in the first place, nor should the job have been declared finished when it wasn't. Additionally, I received an e-mail from Gary attempting to intimidate me into having my daughter remove reviews of our experience, claiming he had hired a forensic internet attorney and would take the "next legal step needed" if I did not have her do this by day's end. Upon reading other reviews, it has become clear that the majority of 5 star reviews have been written by the business owner or employees under the names of Gary D, Richard Crabby, Robert Beardsley, Scott S, Ed Peach, and others. I will not hire these electricians again.
