Our Work Comes With a Warranty

Any time Brubaker Inc. electricians perform work on your home, all materials we provide, along with all work we perform, is covered by a 2-year warranty. That means that if anything doesn’t work as intended, we will repair or replace it promptly, at no cost to you.

We extend our 2-year warranty into a 3-year warranty for two of our popular services:

  • When we upgrade your home’s service (i.e., from 100 amps to 200 amps)
  • When we replace your home’s circuit breaker panel

Because Brubaker Inc. has been in business for 70 years and running strong, you’ll know we will be here to honor our warranties.

Warranty on residential electrical services

Our electricians work around your schedule.

If your appointment is first thing in the morning, we will call you the day before to confirm the time of our arrival. If you appointment is later in the day, we will call you as your electrician is wrapping up his prior appointment. We never make you wait around.

When you need help right away, Brubaker Inc. will be there. When you prefer to schedule days or weeks in advance, we make sure we’re there when it works best for you.

Work that shouldn’t wait

Owning a home means having two lists — a list of things you’d like to do with your home some day, and a list of maintenance and fixes that should be performed as soon as possible. Here’s our top list of electrical issues that shouldn’t wait.

  • A circuit breaker trips often – It’s a sign that you have too much on one circuit. We can break up the circuit differently or run a new one based on your situation.
  • Too many extension cords – Extension cords and power strips can be dangerous. We can install additional electrical receptacles where you need them.
  • Lots of valuable electronics – The best way to protect your computers, TVs, and other electronic devices is with a whole-house surge protector.
  • Not enough outdoor lighting – We install outdoor lighting fixtures, including ones with motion detectors and timers. They’re a great way to dress up your property while also dramatically increasing your security.
  • Knob-and-tube wiring – Older homes were first wired with a method called knob and tube. If you’re just moving into a home or looking to sell, it’s a great time to rewire your home to bring it up to current safety standards.

Service upgrades and panel replacements

We update dangerous old electrical panels and also give you more room for more circuits, including by upgrading your home from 100 amp service to 200 amp.

When you have circuit breakers tripping too often or want to add more electrical outlets to your home, if you’re out of space in your electrical panel, you’re out of luck… until you upgrade. Many of today’s homes have electricial needs that exceed their original 100 amp service. And many others have old, dangerous circuit breaker panels that should be replaced for safety reasons.

We make it easy to find out if upgrading your service or replacing your panel is right for you. Give us a call, and if you do need it, we’ll give you a total quote for the project. No pressure and no obligation.

 

Certified generator installation

Our electricians are factory-certified to install Generac and Honeywell generators. Many municipalities require not only building permits, but also zoning permits for these installations, and we take care of it all.

Never go without power again. These home backup generators run on natural gas or LP from your existing service. Lots of fly-by-night and single-man operations say they can install generators, but we have repaired enough of their work to know it isn’t true. Only rely on an experienced company like Brubaker Inc. that is certified by the manufacturer to complete the installation correctly and in keeping with the requirements of the manufacturer warranties.
