A rave to the DenMar Electric worker and a man on a blue motorcycle who got out of their vehicles and helped a poor woman in a white car who stalled in the intersection at Terminal Ave around 3 today. What kind guys! (Others just sat in their cars and watched her struggle)

Office is great and happy to have my x-ray back up and running.
Very happy with the house. Your guys did an excellent job of getting me the end result I was looking for.
We are planning on moving some lights around in the near future as well as adding some fixtures so will be in touch once we are clear on what we are looking for.

Thanks again, you guys were excellent to deal with.

We were very impressed with the DenMar crew. Duane took the time to walk through the job beforehand, make suggestions and help with decisions. Jarrod and his crew were very efficient, professional, accommodating and polite. We will definitely recommend DenMar to our friends/family and will always call DenMar for future work.

Please make sure the bosses know that Ryan is a “McGyver”, he fixed up an old fan and put together and installed 2 new fans so quickly (we opened the box and were overwhelmed with all the pieces). Ryan cleaned up and took everything away with him – I’m not used to trades people doing that. We have a lot of renos coming up, we are finishing our basement and we will definitely use DenMar and would like to request Ryan for our future work, he pointed out things I never would have noticed and he knows exactly what I’m looking to have done.

We had a CSA Silver Label inspection, repairs and upgrades done. Lorne and Tristen were a pleasure to have in our home. They are great employees and they represented DenMar in the best way possible. We will recommend us to anyone inquiring about an electrician.

Dave and I want to thank you so much for looking after us in regards to replacing our intermittent pot light. Well actually the TWO lights...one in the kitchen and now one in the bathroom today.

Ryan remembered being here when we had the extensive electrical renovations done by DenMar. We're hoping it's alright but while he was here, we thought it appropriate to ask for his professional opinion on future additional lighting in our living room. He was very helpful and honest.
Now we feel comfortable about what type of lighting to search for and will certainly give you folks a call when we're ready for that installation in the future.

Thanks again.

Recently, when half of my house suddenly and inexplicably lost power on a rainy weekend morning I needed immediate electrical assistance. I called three companies in the Yellow Pages advertising 24 hour emergency services and only one responded – DenMar Electric. Not only was I impressed that they returned my call within 20 minutes, but I was even more impressed when the manager who took the weekend call personally promised to arrive within the hour, and showed up in forty minutes. After a thorough inspection of my electrical service Graham determined that further investigation was required, given my house was a mid century home with mostly old wiring, but first he made sure that was everything was safe for the time being.

A couple of days later DenMar sent two electricians to find and fix my electrical problems and they quickly encountered a wiring nightmare from the 1950s, with no apparent pattern or logic. Together, they worked methodically and competently to trace the source of the problems, fixing issues found and updating plugs along the way. It took longer than expected and they both committed to completing the repairs despite waiting family obligations. I was both impressed and grateful for their dedication and determination to leave me with lights and heat on this dreary winter day. Also very gratifying to my stretched budget, the bill I received in the end was much more manageable I thought it might be. Consequently, DenMar Electric is now my first electrician of choice.

I just wanted to put in writing what I have been meaning to do several times now, I am just blown away by the service and attention to detail that DenMar Electric provides me. With more phone calls than I can remember to your office, I can honestly say you and your staff have never once dropped the ball or let me/Bon Echo homes down.

Your employees are always positive and a pleasure to have on my jobsites. In particular, your foreman for DenMar on 4570 Laguna was awesome to work with and a definite asset to your organization. He is extremely organized, detail orientated, focused, driven and fun to work with, but I cannot overlook the same qualities in Duane and Graham, as well as the numerous apprentices that work on our sites.

I wish I could find this attention to detail and work in the numerous other subtrades I have had the misfortune of working with in Nanaimo.

Thank you,

Good afternoon, last week we had a crew from your business come to our office and replace all of our lighting. I wanted to take the time to let you know how impressed we were with them! We have a full office here of adivsors and clients going in and out all day long. Your staff was not only quick, and efficient but also very friendly and accommodating.

Generally when I have someone in to get some work done in the office during business hours, I will have at least one advisor complain either about noise, mess or inconvenience. I received nothing but positive feedback. Everyone was impressed at how such a large crew could get a big job done and not cause any disruption to our work place.

After all the work was done there was no mess left behind, nothing but nice new bright lights!

Thank you so much - what an awesome company you are - and you have a fantastic crew!!!

You guys rock!! All the best,

They were the team that installed my new furnace and heat pump. I was very impressed with their diligence and their courtesy. They were friendly, focussed, and informative. They ensured that any mess made during the work was cleaned up at the end and checked with me to see that it was done to my expectations. Their professionalism and customer care are a credit to your company and to your reputation in this community. Please convey to them my appreciation for their services and for their performance.

I would like to take this opportunity to extend our thanks to DenMar Electric and particularly to Graham Davies for the excellent work and cooperation exhibited during this project. Early hours as well as working around staff and our schedules wasn't always easy but accomplished successfully and professionally none the less.

Thank you for the quick work you did upgrading my electrical service. I am amazed that someone crawled through my tiny attic space to feed the cables through. And that my guitar amps, PA, and drums were moved to safety before work began - a huge oversight on my part, I'm glad someone was thinking about the welfare of my instruments!

The work was done fast with no inconvenience to me, and was clean and professional looking. I forgot to mention that I had a preference for what brand panel I wanted, but I got what I wanted anyway. Your electricians were friendly and helpful, answering any questions I had and even making sure my cats didn't get out.

I am really happy that I chose DenMar - I had quotes for over $600 less, however the Service Manager impressed me on his visit. He took the time to go over what needed to be done, what changes had to be made to bring it up to code [the old connection wasn't] and even an estimate on what BC Hydro was going to charge me. All in all, I'd say that I made the right choice; in this day and age, you get what you pay for. The best part of it all of course is now I can have my heat pump, recording studio, AND a hot tub without tripping the breakers.

We want to let you know that we were impressed with your employees Graham and his apprentice. They did a great job. They always made sure that they made a minimal impact on our daily lives while they worked. They tidied everything up each day. This is an old house and presented a variety of challenges but, Graham was able to come up with workable solutions.

Thank you, Terry Winters
