Thanks again for sending a great team over to us to handle our new wiring. As promised, please see below our review..I know it is long but I feel these are important issue to all who are shopping around for an electrician:
Naturally when we discovered we had knob and tube wiring running through our recently purchased home we were rather distressed considering we understood from the seller that the wiring was all upgraded, not to mention the hard fast deadline our insurance gave us to ensure it was all disconnected an replaced with new wiring. After to reading numerous reviews, I took a chance and called Tesla. Understanding my urgency to have this resolved Nedd came over later that evening to give me an estimate. He not only helped clarify the concerns with having k & t but was able to assure us that our situation was not as bad as we first feared and that he would guarantee the work was done in time to satisfy our insurers. Not for a moment did I feel that he was trying to push or recommend fixes/upgrades that really didn't need to be done. It was evident that to me that he was a professional who was all about getting the job done that was actually necessary/required rather than someone looking to seize the opportunity to milk us for unnecessary work.
Now, on to the team he sent me…these guys were FANTASTIC!! It was honestly like a military operation. They arrived on time (everyday) and were so systematic and efficient. They meticulously covered every inch of my hardwood with high grade construction paper but also cover every piece of furniture with plastic. They were so careful to ensure anything that seemed at risk of getting knocked over was put in a safe place. They were also very careful to ensure our sneaky Siamese didn't try and make a dash out the front door. When Joe and Sean thoroughly assessed everything again to confirm all lights and outlets that needed to be addressed they also pointed out some other serious safety issues and took the time to patiently explain things. When all was assessed it did come in at the higher end of the quote but in fairness the extra was to address removing some old aluminum wiring found along the way that wasn't anticipated. And quite frankly they also added in some 'extras' that needed addressing after they quoted for which I was not charged.
One of my biggest concerns going into this k & t removal was the damage to the plaster walls of our old home. However, I was so impressed with their technique that only resulted in few carefully made holes in necessary spots. They are very skilled at fishing the wires where needed and didn't need to tear open my walls like a pack of gorillas (like my gas fitter guy did). They also saved the pucks for me so I could colour match the paint. When Sean patched the walls I was most impressed, he did an incredible job. Now that I have repainted one can't even tell where there were once holes. He even went above and beyond by patching up cracks and holes along the way that he saw which were not even a result of damage they had caused. Not only was he super smart on every topic but a real perfectionist!
I have very high standards and it is not easy to impress me but I have to say, not only did every member of the team I was sent posses a great work ethic (wow, they work hard and long hours) they truly did a stellar job. I would recommend them to everyone I know and I find a great deal of comfort knowing I can rely on them moving forward for all my electrical needs.
"We were originally referred to Nedd Velagic, President, Tesla Electric Limited ("Tesla") when we were researching electricians to rewire our older home and replace any remaining "knob and tube" components. This proved to be a sound recommendation.
Our job was quoted at a competitive and reasonable price. It was estimated to be a two week project. In addition to replacement wiring, our contract was to include inspection of any upgrades that had been installed by prior owners to ensure current standards were met. During work we made modifications for additional installations and, although this added approximately 3-4 days to timing, it was easily accommodated by Tesla. All work was completed in a professional manner. As work progressed, we were impressed by the team's initiative to suggest and undertake minor technical changes that they considered necessary or that would be helpful. If larger issues were identified, they made reasonable recommendations as to how to prioritize.
In our research we had learned that Tesla was unique in that they also provided a complete drywall repair service for rewiring projects. Notwithstanding that they make every effort to limit and isolate intrusions, this feature was truly appreciated once we saw the number of holes required to guide the wires! Tesla did outstanding electrical work but it was certainly value added that they could efficiently and effectively co-ordinate the drywall repair component as well. They did such a great job that, in many rooms, we were able to simply do touch up painting until a later date.
Only months after completing the rewiring we upgraded the kitchen and required that the electrical work be subcontracted to Tesla. Tesla seamlessly joined the team to co-ordinate.
On both occasions, Tesla co-ordinated all necessary inspections and we are now confident that the wiring in our home is safe and meets all standards. We highly recommend the Tesla team. We lived in our home through these projects and the Tesla team were terrific "house guests" as well as a pleasure to work with- they were conscientious and respectful. We will continue to rely on Tesla Electric Limited for our electrical needs and have no hesitation in recommending them to family, friends and neighbours.
We value the trust that we have in the work they do and with Tesla Electric Limited continued success in years to come.

Many thanks for the excellent work done by Tesla Electric Ltd. Your crew took good care of our home over the last seven days while completing an extensive job removing the knob and tube and completing addittional work as
requested. Coverings were used in all areas where work was done. Keeping dust to a minimum was a definate priority . Thank-you!
Your team was hardworking and courteous at all times. The time to finish the job as estimated by Joe was right on. The drywall repairs done by Sean are excellant. Mike and Adriano as young apprentices are keen and well
supervised. They are very fortunate to have landed this oppportunity provided by your company.
We would not hesitate to recommend Tesla Electric to our friends.

"Just to give you a bit of a back ground, my father's insurance company refused to insurance his house because of the knob and tube system. They classified the house as high risk as this system could cause fires.
Since Tesla Electric specialized in knob and tube replacement and electrical service upgrades and had 39 years of experience, they were the 1st company I called.
Nedd Velagic did the estimate. The estimate was accurate. There were only 2 additional items added to the final billing based on what was found.
When the insurance company failed to continue to ensure the property on condition of the ESA certificate, Nedd Velagic was kind enough to recommend his insurance broker, who insured the property based on Nedd's referral.
My father is elderly and not fluent in English. However, the crew made him understand what was going on at all times and were extremely pleasant. My family was comfortable with having them in the house. A good group of professional young men that knew exactly what they were doing! They were excellent!
The job was completed as scheduled. My father and my family were very satisfied with the work and we would recommend Tesla Electric to everyone!"

"I highly recommend Tesla Electric. The Company has recently completed major work in my house, first correcting bad and incomplete work by another firm, and then replacing most of the knob and tube wiring in my three story house.
They were well organized, careful to cover workspaces, computer, etc., with dust sheets. One day they worked long hours to complete main floor work for a large "surprise" party, that had not been scheduled when they started the job.
They responded to additional requests promptly, did follow up and stayed within their original estimate. The have my unqualified confidence and support."
Tesla Electric assisted us with our kitchen renovation. They were responsive to our time lines, reliable and the work was of a high standard. I would have no hesitation working with them on future projects.
"We would like to thank you for the rewiring work Tesla recently completed at our house.
It took us some time to finalize the scope of the job; we appreciated your patience and help as we worked through that process. The extra time was worthwhile since it led to some great additions, such as our whole home surge protection and terrific soffit lighting.
Once we got rolling, your team worked quickly and treated our home very well. They cleaned up after themselves every day and did everything they could to keep the inconvenience of a very disruptive process to a minimum. Joe and Rico were extremely friendly and easy to work with. While there were some scheduling challenges at the end of the process (as everyone tried to get everything done before the holidays), the service was excellent. We would gladly recommend Tesla to our friends and family."

"I would like to take a moment and thank both you and your team for the outstanding work Tesla Electric completed at my house last month. Replacing the entire electrical service can be challenging - both as a home owner and I'm sure as a licensed electrician. Nonetheless, the work was completed on time, within budget and with minimal disturbance to the house.
As with any renovation project, communication is the key and this is really where Tesla excelled. You enabled us to work effectively with our other contractors.
From the first day when your team carefully covered the hardwood floors to the very end when the cleanup was done, the job was completed in a very professional manner. Please feel free to use me as a reference if needed in the future.
All the best and thank you again."
"We recently had our house rewired (knob & tube removed) by Tesla Electric and were happy with the work that was done.
They did the work in the time they had estimated and they were clear about the costs all along. We were always informed about the work that was being done at any given time and any changes were clearly presented. They cleaned up every day and removed all the garbage at the end.
We will happily hire Tesla again if we have any further need for electrical work and have already recommended them to friends."
Sigrid Blohm Blohm & Peter Bruer
"Recently I had Tesla Electric Ltd. rewire the entire house, install a bathroom vent and a new front doorbell. The explanation of the necessary work was exceptionally clear and professional, and the documents were the same. Any possible increase of cost was mentioned in advance and was within suggested limits.
The work was done in a very accommodating fashion, the patching of walls in preparation for painting was particularly skillful, and the clean-up after the job was excellent.
I certainly plan to have Tesla and Nedd Velagic's crew back for any further electrical work.
