Electrical Installation

Whenever you plug in an appliance, flip a switch, or adjust a light, you interact with the electrical system in your home. Colonial Electrical Services works to ensure homeowners can interact with their electrical systems in a safe and user-friendly manner.

Expansion Installations

Adding living space to your home can be a scary experience. However, an expert from Colonial Electrical Services can help you navigate the electrical experience’s logistics for any room needing outlets, lighting, smoke detectors, ceiling fans, and more.

Remodeling Services

Electrical infrastructure can be overlooked during remodeling projects because it’s hidden behind walls, yet it is one of the first things you should consider. Remodeling projects can provide the perfect opportunity to upgrade, improve and inspect your electrical systems.

Wiring & Rewiring

Homes often have many types of wiring, including; power distribution, lighting, phone, permanently installed and portable appliances, and heating and ventilation system controls. For extensive projects, hiring an electrical contractor makes good sense.

Electrical Repairs

As homeowners, we can all relate to power outages and electrical problems. Unfortunately, solutions can be dangerous and expensive in the wrong hands. Colonial Electrical Services will send a qualified electrician to ensure your repairs are done right.

Generator Installation & Repairs

Don’t have a backup generator in place yet? What are your plans for when the lights and power go out next? A generator can save you money and help ensure you have hot water, heating, air conditioning, and other home essentials when needed. In addition, we can assist you with a quick installation.

If you already have a generator but need service or repair, give us a call. We’ve been serving residents of Newport News and the Virginia Peninsula with their generator issues for years and have the experience and tools to get the job done right the first time.

Fixture Replacement

Replacing old or damaged light fixtures can provide many benefits. Since the installation process requires electrical connections, using a qualified electrician for the project can give you confidence that your new fixtures are installed correctly.

AFCI Breakers

Arc-fault circuit breakers shut off the power before an electrical fire can start. More than 2,000 people die or are injured yearly from home electrical fires. While smoke detectors and fire extinguishers provide life-saving help, it’s only after a fire starts. AFCI Breakers help prevents a fire.

Whole Home Surge Protectors

Today’s home is full of electronics, things most people don’t even consider. Computer boards can be found in computers and phones, TVs, appliances, and even some water heaters. Don’t forget your heating and cooling system. Electrical surges are unwanted excesses of energy, and we can help you avoid them.

Thermal Imaging

Thermal Imaging allows us to find and correct costly electrical repairs before they happen. It shows us a panel is about to fail before it fails and heads off home electrical fires, loose connections, and overloaded breakers and wires. It lets us see things a regular electrical check wouldn’t show. For example, it allows us to see inside the breaker thermally and evaluate the contacts inside. Thermal imaging is the most cost-effective method of checking this, taking almost a quarter of the time it usually would complete.

Service Grounding

Your home’s Grounding system is essential to the electrical safety system. Unfortunately, some older homes were grounded with only a piece of iron pipe which can erode, leaving you and your family in danger. Let us evaluate your grounding system and make a recommendation for you today. We installed two new ground rods created for today’s harsh environments and a new copper conductor with our grounding service. These provide long life and protection.
