This time they installed an isolated circuit in our garage and some can lighting. Even though it was a smaller job, they treated it just as importantly as the bigger job.They answered all our questions, let us know and talk through our options and didn't do any additional work without letting us know and approve the price difference for our requests, rather than telling us at the end of the job.A+ work!Response from the ownerThanks Mathew. You and your wife were great to work for. I still want to steal your dog! Lynne BaldwinLynne Baldwin ★★★★★ We had a ceiling fixture out.

It is always a pleasure to work with you. Maggie BradyMaggie Brady ★★★★★ Update 9/2020 - Upgraded some thermostat wiring for me with a difficult routing. Professional and quick.Update - Jason and Josh again came through for me. In the midst of a heat wave, they were able to come to the other end of the county and fix an electrical problem at my mother's house. Got the outlets for the portable AC and lift chair back working and made the wiring safer to boot.Original - Could not ask for better. Jason installed a new 40 amp circuit and an EVo charger for our car. (No more slow 110 charging. Yeah!) While working in our breaker panel he noted a dangerous situation left by a previous contractor who upgraded our air conditioning.(Side note kind of disappointing the inspector didn't notice that the other contractor put in a bigger breaker on a wire that was too small. Luckily the wire insulation had just started to bubble and it didn't catch fire.)Within a week they were able to fit us in to replace the faulty circuit as well as rewire our garage lighting to eliminate some creative but scary runs of extension cords and re-purposed outlets. Now I have bright lights and when I look up, I don't see wires draped everywhere.We connected with Jason of Dollens Electric through our equally excellent general contractor Dan Mackey. (Who by the way had nothing to do with the faulty circuit or the creative garage lighting.)Lastly a thank you to Jason's son Josh who got to do the crawling under the house.Response from the ownerWe could not ask for better customers. We are looking forward to their next project!!!Thanks Maggie and Jim!!! Dana AsaroDana Asaro ★★★★★ Response from the ownerThank you Dana, we appreciate you and your feed back.

Matt DobilasMatt Dobilas ★★★★★ I had Dollens come out to bid on installing a standby generator and they were friendly, on time, and professional. They walked me through options, explained what they were looking out and why and asked lots of follow up questions to make sure i was getting a bid for everything i wanted and needed.Public BradyPublic Brady ★★★★★ These guys are the best. Very knowledgeable when troubleshooting old problems from less capable electricians who were here for prior owners. Installed a new outlet in my hardwood floor that looks beautiful along with solving our "where to put the lamp" problem. Lastly wired up a cat6 network allowing us to move our router/hub into a closet off my desk.Call/use them; you won't be sorry.Hide/GayleHide/Gayle ★★★★★ Lee WongLee Wong ★★★★★ On time, explains the work so you will understand what was done and why.Amy TamuraAmy Tamura ★★★★★ Jason, Josh, and Elijah were prompt, considerate, professional, trustworthy, and kind.

I would definitely use them again.
