About Us

Castle Electric Inc. was formed in 2014 by Gavin Dunn and Michael Haff; experienced electricians with a wealth of trade knowledge, and a healthy enthusiasm for ensuring a job is completed correctly.

Since the creation, Castle Electric’s vision has been to provide the highest degree of quality on all installations, whether it be a single room renovation, new custom home, or a new commercial space. Our team consists of honest dedicated individuals who treat their work as a career, and who leave each day feeling satisfied in the work they have done; a tradition that continues in the footsteps of the company’s history.

We enjoy nothing more than exceeding expectations, and leaving you with the peace of mind that the projected has been completed to the highest standard.

We aren’t satisfied until you are.
