Welcome to Nelson Electric

I've been providing homeowners in Oakland, Berkeley, Piedmont, Alameda, Lafayette, Moraga, Walnut Creek and nearby communities with the highest possible level of personalized service available -- I do all of the work myself.  I've lived in Rockridge and Temescal for the past 21 years.  During that time my local customers have come to expect top quality workmanship, courteous, dependable service, fair prices and complete satisfaction when I've finished a job. They appreciate the security and comfort of dealing directly with the actual craftsman who will be working in their home or business.

I do all kinds of residential electrical repairs and installations as well as small commercial projects. No job is too small any very few are too big. Whether it’s simply installing a lighting fixture or completely wiring a new house I have the experience to do the job right.

Many of my customers are particularly concerned about the dust, dirt, damage and disruption that go along with having work done in their home. It can't be avoided but the extra care I take goes a long way toward minimizing the inconvenience. For work in the most sensitive areas of your home, I am an expert at concealed retrofit work. Adding additional wall plugs, switches, and new lighting fixtures can sometimes be done without any damage to walls or woodwork. Even when major work does require cutting holes in ceilings or walls, I minimize the damage.
I don't advertise the lowest price or any phony 10-20-40% off deals. Think about it: 20% off of what? I just give you the best, professional service at a reasonable price. For service calls and small jobs under 4 hours long I charge $80 per hour plus a $40 service charge to cover travel time. My minimum charge is $120.  Free estimates are gladly given for larger projects. I can do the whole job or will work with the do-it-yourselfers on your remodeling project.
