After a call, Mr. Forest immediately came to my house and diagnosed the problem. The issue was a supply issue from Dominion Power, so it was a repair that Mr. Forest was not able to repair. He did give me very specific instructions on how to deal with Dominion, and what to expect from the repair. Mr. Forest is professional, well versed in his trade, and above all, FAIR and HONEST. He is a good man who runs a good company. In a world where skepticism of tradespeople abounds, it is a relief to deal with someone who respects his profession and customers."

So, went to google, and found Gordan Forest, he was close by, so I gave him a call. He and his guys were great! They came right out, took care of the problem and checked the box to make sure that there weren't any other issues. It's nice to see people who care not just about doing a good job, but also about the people they are doing the work for. Will definitely call them with any and all of my electrical concerns."

As most consumers could attest it is hard to read whether you've got yourself a quality contractor/mechanic until the job is done and you reflect on what just happened. Not with Gordan Forest and his team, not only did he have the job done quickly but he unearthed some MAJOR code violations that were missed on my home inspection just a month ago and if shedding light to the potential fire starters weren't enough. He confronted my home inspector about them and got my money back from home inspection!! Its a rarity and a pleasure to meet a master tradesman such as Gordan Forest and his team of experts safety and the customer are his primary concern and will he be my primary contact for electrical work in the future."

I checked all of the breakers, I switched a couple around, couldn’t figure it out. So I searched for an electrician locally, of course, this was 8 am on Saturday. I decided to give Gordon Forest a call because he was close and had two good reviews already. Well after a short chat he told me that is was most likely the power coming in from the street and to call Dominion Power, have them check it then if there was still a problem to call him back and he would send someone out. He called back a few minutes later to check and see how I was doing (WOW) I told him I was having trouble finding the phone number for the power company, he knew it from memory. I called them, put in a trouble ticket, within two hours they came out determined there was something wrong with the line coming to my house, they had it fixed temporarily and will return on Monday for a permanent repair. Most other electricians would have come out looked around, charged me, and then told me to call the power company. Thanks, Gordon, I will be dealing with you again."
