Service Calls & Repairs FAQ

What kind of electrical problems can Gubruds diagnose?

Gubruds has been providing quality Electrical Services and Repairs throughout the greater Sacramento and surrounding areas since 1995, and the owner has been performing electrical work in this same area since the late 1980s, which is several decades of honing our skills to better serve the community. Therefore you can rest assured that if you have an electrical malfunction problem with your main electrical panel, lighting system, plug system, phone/data system, generator back-up system, spa electrical, circuit breakers, smoke/CO2 detectors, and everything electrical related for your home, you can rest assured that we have the experience to diagnose and repair your electrical problem.

What Factors Affect the Cost of a Diagnostic Service Call?

We understand the concerns of not knowing the cost of unexpected repairs. This is exactly why we have developed a straight forward price system allowing our trained electricians to provide you with an upfront price before we get started with any diagnostics. This method allows you to know the cost of the diagnostic, and approve any work before we get started. This pricing method is possible due to the extensive ongoing training that we provide, and the decades of experience throughout our team of electricians.

So, how much does an electrician cost? Although there are a few things that can affect the cost of diagnosing an electrical problem, such as failed electrical splices in areas that are not accessible, the average cost of most residential diagnostics with minor repairs can vary. 

Call us today for straight forward pricing with no surprises.

How Quickly Can an Electrical Contractor Get to My House?

We understand that getting your electrical system back up and operating safely is very important to you, so we do our best to prioritize service requests in levels of urgency. We prioritize safety concerns with what we call a level-5, these calls are scheduled immediately or same day and usually mean there is no power, electrical smoke smell, sparking from a device or electrical panel, smoke detectors are malfunctioning and keeping you up all night (just to name a few).

The next level of urgency is our Level-3, these calls may be a home with partial power out, and might be an  inconvenience to the home or business owner. These calls are usually scheduled the next day. The third level of urgency is our Level-1, these are standard requests that are scheduled within our normal schedule and usually get on the schedule within two to four days. Our office staff is great at communicating with you the scheduled dates and times, they keep you informed every step of the way.

How Long Do Most Electrical Repairs and Service Calls Take?

There is no straightforward answer as to how long most electrical repairs and services take. The process of diagnosing an electrical problem is the first step of the process in a repair scenario and can take anywhere from one to four hours. The second step of the process is the repair after the problem has been diagnosed. Minor repairs can usually be repaired during the diagnosis and findings of the problem, and major repairs that might require a more extensive approach and may require obtaining non-stock material can take several hours to properly repair and make safe. Although this is a little bit of an open-ended answer, you can rest assured that Gubruds will keep you informed along the way.

What Is the Average Cost Per Electrical Project?

The average cost for an electrical project varies quite a bit depending on the amount of work and the difficulty of the project, as well as the equipment used. Electrical projects can range from a couple of hundred dollars to several thousand dollars. 

This is why Gubruds does not give phone ballpark prices and require our electricians to meet onsite to evaluate each and every project that we work on. This process allows us to visually see anything that can affect the overall price, being onsite also allows us to ask questions and get to know you better allowing us to provide different options that work best for you and your family. 

Feel free to contact us today for your upcoming projects, we will be happy to come out and spend some time with you learning more about your wants and needs in order to provide you with the best choices.

How Can I Reduce the Cost of Service Calls and Repairs?

Here are a few things that you as the home or business owner can do to help reduce the cost of  a project or service request:

  • Make sure the area that the electrician is working is clear of furniture or obstructions that can be moved out of the way to make the work safer and more efficient. 
  • The more work that you approve to get done at the time of service, the more cost efficient it is for us to have an electrician on site rather than making several trips.
  • Be sure to have any customer provided fixtures or customer provided material on site at the time of service.
  • Schedule work during normal business hours.
  • Ask for a discount in return for allowing us to post a yard sign for an agreed amount of time (usually sixty days) along with referrals to friends and honest reviews.

Are Any Coupons or Discounts Available for My Service Call?

Gubruds offers 5% discounts for senior citizens, active military, and veterans.

We also have coupons posted regularly, so if you don’t see anything on our site, please don’t forget to ask when you call.

We also have great financing options available for those unplanned repairs we’re never prepared for.
