The Shock Doctors have been proudly serving our Barrie and area clients for over 30 years! Our Barrie Electricians are licensed Master Electricians who ensure in-home electrical safety and peace of mind.
In Barrie, we still find evidence of old wiring techniques in the older neighbourhoods: In Olde East Barrie you can still find original knob and tube wiring in those beautiful old historic homes of down town close to the waterfront and Kempenfelt Bay. There are many examples of fuse panels and electrical services that are 30 – 60 amps— well below current day’s 100 amp minimum requirements. In-fill homes built between 1950s and 1960s usually have 60 amp electrical services and many have not had their electrical panels replaced with breaker panels.
Much of the building in Letitia Heights and Allendale areas took place in the 1970s. There are many homes in these neighbourhoods wired with aluminum wiring. Our Barrie Electricians have rejuvenated the aluminium wiring in many homes in this area providing a permanent solution for a home wired using aluminium.
If you are considering a major renovation to your recently purchased home, The Shock Doctors recommend beginning with a whole home electrical inspection. Knowing the overall health of your electrical system avoids costly surprises mid-project.
Whether it is replacing an old fuse panel with a modern breaker panel, equipping a home top to bottom with the best smoke and CO detection or installing whole home backup generator power, The Shock Doctors make sure the electrical systems of their clients are installed and maintained for optimum performance and longevity.
Our residential electricians serve Barrie and the surrounding areas of Innisfil, Thornton, Guthrie, Oro Township, Springwater Township, Shanty Bay and Moonstone. We have an excellent working relationship with both the hydro utility providers and the ESA inspection team so when you have lost your power, we can restore it the same day.
When you request a visit from The Shock Doctors, your local Barrie Electrician you can count on us to be on time, prepared and respectful of your home and property. With a focus on being friendly, professional and informative, it is our goal to make your service call the best you have ever experienced.
