An electrician for a small home renovation project?

power outlet in wallC asks:

We're doing some light renovation of a space in our house, taking out an old drop ceiling, and we're looking for an electrician to help with a few things. The biggest thing I think is moving some of lights that had been in the ceiling. Some of the wires will also probably have to be moved.
Does anyone have recommendations for an electrician for a small project like this?

We've had a similar question in the past, but it was years ago and things change.

So, know of a good electrician for C's project? Please share. And bonus points for a sentence or two about why you're recommending that person or company.

No messing around or pricing games - he has a set price list for electrical work. You tell him what you need done and you see upfront what it costs. I've used him numerous times. Always clean work and no shortcuts.

We had a fantastic experience with Mike Skidmore from M&C Electrical Solutions. He was highly skilled, polite, and stuck to his estimate. Can't say enough good things about him.

Jerry Montoya of Grounded Electric Services LLC in Troy is the best. I've known him personally for years and have even helped him out with some minor office work. He is a man of integrity, dedication and true expertise. I can't tell you how many times he's shown me pictures of the shoddy work he encounters in homes and I can tell you from personal experience his bar for excellence in his work is higher than anyone I've encountered. He is booking out a little ways but if you call you can get in for an estimate (518) 237-2363.

He's a 4th generation Albany Master Electrician. I had a great experience with Chris throughout my attic renovation. He does things the right way with great attention to detail. I couldn't recommend him highly enough.

I would second Grounded Electric. Jerry did minor repair work at my home, new electrical (receptacles and rough in for light fixtures) as part of a kitchen renovation and also replaced a damaged electrical service/panel. I found Jerry to be both responsive and reasonably priced.

Affordable Electric. Dave is the owner. Reliable, truly affordable, trust-worthy and does an excellent job. While our job was larger (re-wired our entire house) they do all jobs large and small. Terrific attention to detail and also an all around great guy to work with.

Chris and Don were meticulous in all service work I had for them. My landscape lights look great, and their design work of my recessed lights and ceiling fan are second to none. Will definetly have them back for my future projects.

My grandmother has Alzheimers and sometimes comes to stay with us in Troy. Last week the absolutely highlight of her day was seeing the hundreds of crows that came streaming by the window at our apartment. I watched her go from completely unresponsive to engaged... stringing questions together and returning to her old joyful self for the half hour she watched those birds was enough to endear crows to me forever.

If you see someone running around throwing bird seed in Riverfront Park yelling "COME ON DOWN, BIRD FRIENDS!", it's me.
