About Us

Since 1979

Presto Electric started with a young master electrician and hopes of one day providing a better life for his family. Taking a chance, Richard left his factory job and Presto Electric opened its doors. A true small business at the time, Richard built up a positive reputation with residential customers because of his upfront way of providing service. Since 1979, Presto has been family owned and operated with Richard’s wife, daughter and son becoming integral parts of the business.

Small, Local Business… Big Presence

Presto Electric may be small compared to other companies, but our size allows our electricians to provide fast, efficient and courteous service. We have the ability to provide service to almost anywhere in Maryland including but not limited to: Baltimore County, Anne Arundel County, Baltimore City and Harford county. Unlike larger companies with confusing pricing structures, our electricians and pricing will never leave you being surprised at the end of a job.

Common Sense Pricing

Whatever others want to call it–upfront, flat rate, or guaranteed pricing–rest assured that Presto Electric’s technicians are capable of pricing out nearly all work on-site and, in most cases, performing work on the very same day! There’s no, “$85.00 for the first 30 minutes then $25.00 each additional 15 minutes” type of pricing. Presto Electric is upfront about how we operate, from the time you call until the time our electricians leave. Once on site our electricians will provide you with an accurate upfront price before any work is started.
