John Mcelligott, a master electrician with over 26 years of experience in the electrical industry, founded Electrika in 2004.
Throughout his career, what John observed was how many electricians specializing in larger residential or commercial construction projects were using residential work as a “fill in” for their schedules. As specialists in construction these electricians often did not have the necessary training or aptitude for residential service work. The residential market was not being properly represented by a dedicated residential only electrical contractor.
It is with this forsight that John opened Electrika, a niche company for a niche market, a team of expert electricians servicing Montreal homeowners.
This is our speciality. Electrika focuses solely on home electrical repairs, installation and renovation in the greater Montreal area: downtown, West Island, South Shore and Laval.
All our electricians are fully licensed and insured to work in your home with all the diligence it requires.
We believe in a personal touch approach to making ourselves known in the market. Referral and repeat business is important to us. We want every customer to be 100% satisfied with our service and work. We are confident that we meet this goal and that is why we offer a 100% customer satisfaction guarantee. If you are not 100% satisfied with the service we have provided, we will refund all of your money.
