Our experience was thoroughly positive.  Mr. McCarthy took time to explain the job in full detail and his execution was perfect.  When the city inspector looked things over, he smiled knowingly and remarked, with a bit of whimsical pleasure: "Peter McCarthy really is the King of Hyde Park."  I understood what he meant.

I highly recommend Peter McCarthy if you are looking for a great electrician and professional business person.  We moved into our (Hyde Park area) home last summer, and I didn't know until fall and winter darkness came how horrible our kitchen lighting was!  I had heard many good things about Peter in the neighborhood, so I decided to check in with him.  After e-mailing him, Peter wrote back with an extremely helpful and detailed response describing what our possible options might be, explaining the basics, and offering to come by to take a look.  We had a few ideas, and Peter created a design for us.  We were very excited to get started!
When his crew came on the day of the job, they were very efficient and had things done quickly.  Everything was neat and you wouldn't even know work had been done.  Peter also directed us to a place to get a decorative piece (per our request-- we were not excited about the selection at Home Depot) and even got us a deal there.  Now that the kitchen is done, it all looks great!  Every time I turn on my lights I am SO happy not to be in a dark, shadowy room anymore. Peter was very good about returning calls and e-mails and keeping on top of things.  I wish all home repairs/work were this smooth!  We will definitely call Peter again should we need anything.

Description Of Work:
Peter McCarthy came to see why some lights and outlets in my condominium unit were not getting any power. He found that I had not realized that one of the single circuit breakers was not in proper position (although I thought that I had inspected carefully). I called him because he has done major work for me in the past at this and another location.
Member Comments:
I put in a distress call to Peter McCarthy regarding electrical malfunctioning of a number of areas in my Hyde Park condominium. This was of special concern to me since it is listed for rental and is being shown to potential clients. This was at the high point of one of our hottest days - 100 degrees at noon! It was also at a very busy time for him. He quickly came to my unit, with ladder and tools in hand to fix the problem. It turned out to be a simple solution that was overlooked by me - I had misread the position of the circuit breaker that must have been tripped by the previous night's storm. Though sweating profusely (since the unit was currently unoccupied and the AC was not on), he never got flustered. Not only did he NOT charge me for the call, but he was very pleasant throughout. He stated that he was happy to put my mind at ease and wished me a good day! NOW THAT IS TRULY GREAT CUSTOMER SERVICE!
