I found this company based on google reviews, and they did not let me down. I had Kent wire my entire security system in my new home. He and his crew were not only a pleasure to be around (which is such a bonus), but cared about the quality of their work and that everything was done properly in a timely manner. Quotes were all accurate and fair. I would 100% use Skyline Electric again for further electrical needs.

Skyline Electric was incredibly responsive and got us an appointment the morning after I called which was amazing. Tom who came and did the work was friendly, professional, thorough and had the can-do attitude we needed after a series of failed attempts getting our internet hooked up. Tom helped us get a cord through the wall into our apartment that finally equipped us to connect to the Wifi. He was extremely skilled and knowledgeable about what to look for and where to insert/pull through the cord. He did it all seamlessly without even a scratch on any of the walls and was in and out within an hour. I would call Skyline and ask for Tom in a heartbeat if I needed anything else!

Kent showed up quickly and was very thorough, going through all the steps to narrow down the issue at hand. He was easy-going and explained every step he took to figure out our mysteryissue and voila! Found the problem in a nearby light switch... one that could have been very unpleasant if not discovered. Will gladly use again in the future!!!

I called this electrician from a recommendation from my realtor and Im glad I did. Before hiring Skyline, I had another electrician over to figure out why my microwave wasn't working and for 1 hour the OTHER electrician just put the test in and out of the plug, and after an hour they didn't fix anything but charged me. I called Skyline and they came over, understood what the issue was in a matter of minutes and came back the next day with all the supplies to fix my electrical box. Before they did that, I got an estimate from another company and they said it would be 3x more since they would replace the whole unit. Skyline said that was not needed, and helped me find a more adorable solution that fixed my problem! My microwave works now, my electrical box is compliant (before it was breaking all sorts of regulations) and Ive hired them again to work on some light fixtures. It's hard finding a trustworthy electrician and I'm glad I found one in Chicago. Will 100% recommend them to family and friends

Being an experienced and thoughtful consumer, I have a quite clear understanding of what I need, and what to expect.Given that, I needed a really good and smart electrician to put up a ceiling fan in my bedroom. It was a difficult job.. THEY DID IT PERFECTLY... It was installed perfectly, they are BRILLIANT in that they didn't have to rip up my ceiling, which the other electricians insisted had to be done, to snake wires and conduit thru the ceiling and walls.. AMAZING.. THE PRICE WAS RIGHT & THEY ARE KIND, LOVELY PEOPLE. THEY ALSO WORKED QUICKLY AND EXCEEDED ALL EXPECTATIONS... THE ENTIRE EXPERIENCE WAS TERRIFIC ❗

The wires on my hot water tank burned out. I called and spoke with Ken. He told me they would be here within the hour, and he'd come himself if everyone else was tied up. About 50 minutes later, he was here. About 40 minutes or so later, he not only repaired the wires, he also did on my other hot water tank (I'm in a multiunit). Needless to say, I hope I don't have any other electrical issues, but if I do, I told him I'd be reaching out to them. Thanks Ken!!!

20:44 13 Dec 19
Skyline Electric was AWESOME to work with! They showed up exactly around when they said they would and completed all the work quickly. They also went above and beyond by recommending that I not change all of the outlets that I originally was going to since they checked each one and tightened everything and they looked good! I appreciated the honesty and that they still checked them and tightened everything up. Great company & I will definitely be using them for all my future electrical needs!

If you are looking for a reliable, efficient, fantastic, and reasonably-priced electrician in Chicago, check out Skyline Electric. As homeowners, this was our first time dealing with electrical issues and it was hard to know who to trust. Jeanette promptly responded to our inquiry and Kent stopped by that weekend to fix our lighting when it was convenient for us. This company is a gem and we will be using them for all electrical issues that come our way in the future. Thanks, Skyline!
19:18 22 Nov 19
Skyline did a great job installing nest thermostats in my condo. We ran into some problems with the thermostat but Kent figured out a solution and didn’t leave until the job was done! I appreciate the quality work and would highly recommend Skyline Electric! Jeanette was great at coordinating the job with the building management at 400 N LaSalle and made it much easier on me...thanks Jeanette!
17:58 09 Nov 19
I had a superior experience with Skyline Electric. They are great electricians, handle the administrative details accurately and efficiently and they take the time to make sure the customer is happy with the outcome!When I called (after reading YELP reviews) I gave info on what problems I had (along with what I thought needed to be done). I was surprised to receive a call from the owner. He wanted to work with me over the phone to possibly resolve the issue (for free!) and eliminate the need for a service call. Who does that?? We weren't able to fix it, so his guys came out. Very professional and friendly. We still had problems with an old fixture. The owner came to work with his crew, but didn't charge me for this extra time. My bill was very reasonable and all matters were fixed. Skyline is now "my" electrician. They are a real find
15:09 04 Nov 19
I cannot say enough great things about Skyline Electric - Kent and Nic did an amazing job installing several light fixtures in my new condo. They were extremely knowledgeable, quick and professional, leaving the place spotless when they left. Jeanette in the office was also really great to work with - very communicative and responsive, even managing to get all of the necessary approval forms to my building's management office within 24 hours (which they hand delivered). I have already recommended them to friends and will definitely be using them for all of my future electrical needs!
01:20 13 Oct 19
I called several electrical companies on a Saturday night, many of which claimed to be "24/7." I quickly found out that they all take a message and call you back to you in the indefinite future.Luckily, I kept trying until I found Skyline. I was quickly connected to Kent. I explained my situation to Kent and he immediately diagnosed, explained, and solved the issue over the phone.It is rare to find someone so knowledgeable, efficient, and honest. If I have any other issues in the future, Skyline/Kent will be my first call.
22:10 21 Sep 19
My experience with Skyline electric has been nothing short of amazing. I needed help with fixing my thermostat for a line voltage HVAC system. It was a challenging job that not many could do and most of the people I reached out to were reluctant since the task involved was complex. Kent from Skyline electric was brilliant – he was knowledgeable and understood my need from our initial conversation. He even went the extra mile to ensure I was confident and comfortable with this installation by showing examples of successful installations at various other condos. He was prompt and very professional. He even recommended we install a four-position switch that would help set fan speed as required. I am completely satisfied with his quality of service and cost. I definitely would recommend him for any future electrical jobs.

Had a great first experience with Skyline Electric today installing my NEST thermostat in my apartment. Jeanette was great and explained what I needed to provide, Kent was very friendly and knowledgeable, and quickly installed a converter and the NEST, leaving it ready to go in less than two hours. Would highly recommend Skyline and will continue to use them!
03:14 25 Jul 19
These guys are great. I hired Skyline to fix the front and back lights for our 3 story building in Lincoln Park a couple of years ago, and had them work on multiple things for my own condo today. They are all very professional and knowledgeable! Both Kent from a couple of years ago, and Tom with his "buddy boy" helper 🙂 who were here today, did a great job. And when Tom did not have a tool he needed to cut the kitchen island cabinet, so that it would not crack, he called the office and had the right tools delivered very quickly. Jeanette, who is the owner (i think) and handles appointments, is awesome too. Highly recommend this company!
11:58 12 Jul 19
Full satisfied with these guys!! Great Services!!

I'm not one to go out of my way to write reviews, but I feel compelled to do so for Skyline Electric. I truly cannot say enough good things about my experience. They were incredibly easy to work with and even managed to accommodate our urgent needs on a Sunday. Kent was very friendly and knowledgeable, and solved our problem within minutes. I will absolutely be calling them again whenever I have electrical needs.
01:43 08 Jul 19
I called on a Sunday, and Kent was able to come to the house ASAP (within 30 minutes). Over the phone, Kent immediately diagnosed the problem we had been dealing with for over a week. He was able to thoroughly explain the cause of the problem, the fix, as well as how to prevent a recurrence of the issue. He was extremely professional, and we will absolutely be using Skyline for future electrical work in our home. I would recommend the company to anyone looking for an experienced electrician.
21:00 22 Jun 19
100% endorse.Excellent service. A++. Quick. Friendly. Knowledgable. Fairly Priced.Kent is an expert electrician. Janette is really helpful with troubleshooting, scheduling, and responsiveness.My job involved diagnosing a dead track light section and repairing it.Will call Skyline Electric for my next electrical issue. High quality, professional operation,
12:31 19 Jun 19
I heard what sounded like fireworks going off in both my bathrooms at 4:30 AM. I called Skyline Electric and a sweet woman named Jeanette answered the phone sent Kent over to fix what could have eventually started a small fire if I had waited longer to call. Kent was SO nice and fixed it quickly. I probably woke them both up but they couldn’t have been nicer and more helpful. Would recommend to anyone!! Thank you!!
20:07 23 May 19
Kent and his team did an incredible job! We had recessed lights, pendants, and new light-switches installed by Skyline. - We had a great initial consult by Kent over the placement and size of the lights. This helped us a lot.- We used Halo Home recessed lights, its a new technology where the color warmth is changeable and dimmable from your phone. We had them installed and everything works perfectly.- The lights are perfectly alligned. - Gloves were used to avoid marks on the glass pendants.- Kent's team left the house in a clean state, great people, it was a pleasure having them over.- We received a call 2 weeks later if everything was still working. Great after care service as well!Overall exceptional work and service for a fair price! 200% recommended!
15:56 09 May 19
Thomas came over and fixed a hack electrical job. He walked me through it and made sure I was happy with everything before leaving. I'd recommend 100%
21:23 18 Apr 19
They were very prompt in getting back to me for a small job, explain the pricing, and was able to get someone to fix it on the same day. I will definitely use again!
14:34 31 Mar 19
He was fantastic and did a great job of explaining everything that he was doing. He was also patient enough to show me what he was doing and answering all my questions so that I could learn about the things he was doing.Totally professional!
13:44 28 Mar 19
Very professional and very transparent. They charge extremely fair prices for parts. I highly recommend.
15:45 05 Mar 19
The team at Skyline electric is definitely the best I’ve seen. Kent is the most intelligent, creative and passionate electrician I’ve ever met. Very honest, clean and never shys away from a challenge. I would recommend Skyline to anyone in the city of Chicago.

Don't look further for an electrician! Skyline is busy but more than worth the wait. We have a baby on the way and debated whether it was the right time financially to update the lighting in our dark home and when Kent, Alex, and Chris showed us the finished product, we were speechless! From start to finish they were on time, professional, kind, and, coming from someone who cleans the house after the cleaning woman leaves, they were immaculate! They even worked around my 120 lb dog who wanted to be one of the guys, saving us from having to take him to daycare. Can't say enough!
02:30 28 Nov 18
Kent is awesome. He’s polite, professional and knowledgeable about anything with wires. Highly recommended.
20:44 25 Nov 18
Long-story short, I was replacing an outlet and blew out the circuit breaker in the basement of my apartment building (who knew there were two). After calling 5 electricians on Sunday to no avail, Skyline walked me through the process over the phone to see if they could save me a $250 emergency visit and it worked, all fixed! Friendly and helpful, I will go nowhere else in Chicago now!
15:21 12 Sep 18
Kent was a wonderful electrician that went out of his way to come fix an issue on off-hours. He not only fixed the issue, but also installed three new smart-switches within an hour. He was friendly, helpful, and most importantly, I trust the work that he completed is done right and safely! Thanks Kent!
22:18 15 Jul 18
The AC wasn't working on a hot summer Sunday due to the AC switch in our home breaker unit having connection issues (some sparks and tiny fire). Called Skyline (Kent) on the same day and he stopped by within 45 minutes to fix the issue. He knew what the issue was immediately and was very efficient with his time. He even under charged us. Will definitely be calling him for all other electrical issues or upgrades in the future. We highly recommend Skyline Electic.
16:06 29 Jun 18
Kent was great to work with. We recently bought a home that needed extensive electrical work (replacing and moving an electrical panel) in order to install a new electric hot water heater and Kent and Aldo got it done quickly and at a reasonable price. Scheduling was very flexible - the job was done over the weekend which worked best with my schedule. Kent does quality work and doesn't cut any corners - it is rare to find a tradesman you can trust. We 100% plan to work with Skyline again in the future.
16:17 02 Jun 18
Kent and the Skyline team are awesome - hardworking, dependable and do great work.
01:03 29 May 18
Called on Memorial Day at 8:00 pm and they answered at home and walked me through fixing my problem. Very patient and helpful.
01:49 05 Mar 18
A good electrician is hard to find and I'm thrilled I was referred to these guys. Great work and ALWAYS finish at the low end of their estimates. True professionals who know their business. I'd give Kent and his team 10 stars if possible!
15:26 19 Feb 18
I needed somebody to figure out whether a problem I was having with some LEDs was serious or minor, and what I should do about it, if anything. Skyline returned my call within a couple of hours and communicated well about scheduling, and even though Kent's previous job ran a little long, he extended his workday to come check out the situation a couple of days later. After examining the equipment, talking things through, and following up the next morning, he gave me good, straight advice about my options, didn't try to push me toward expensive work that might not be necessary (I decided to wait), and, in the end, didn't even charge me for the visit. So, I can't testify to the quality of his electrical work, but I sure appreciated the integrity and the generosity. Very positive experience.
14:43 17 Feb 18
Kent updated my bathroom outlet. While it was a small job, he completed it with professionalism and at a reasonable price. I'll call him again when the need arises.
02:27 12 Feb 18
skyline did a fabulous adding lighting to our living room and master bedroom. If you need recess lighting and and WiFi switches this is the company to call. I will continue and would recommend skyline to anyone in need of quality electrical work!
23:03 08 Feb 18
Skyline in stalled a Ecobee thermostat in our condo. We have a 220 volt four pipe system. When other electric companies said it cant be done skyline did ir in 4 hours. Thank you skyline
01:31 07 Feb 18
I am very happy that I chose Skyline Electric. I had an issue with the wiring in my condo and needed a fan installed. Kent took care of it no problem- very professional and efficient and best of all, had a very reasonable price. If you have any electrical needs, Kent is your guy. Highly recommend!
17:53 17 Jan 18
I'm so glad that I called Skyline Electric. I had been having a problem with my track light fixture as the lightbulbs that I put in would never stay lit. I reached out to Skyline and they were really fast and responsive. Two days later they came out and fixed it quickly. The service was fast and friendly. I would call them for any other electrical needs I have. Easy breezy!
14:52 16 Jan 18
Kent was great! He was knowledgeable, professional, on time and the final result paid was well below the estimate. This is my new go-to electrician. I am recommending this company to everyone I know.
22:25 18 Dec 17
Excellent experience working with Skyline Electric.Electrician, Kent, is a strait shooter and will tell you like it is. NO BS. Straight to work and completed everything like he said he would. Originally my appointment was forgotten about, but as soon as I called them they rearranged Kent's schedule. Not many places will do that, especially around the holidays. Very commendable work ethic with good pricing. Couldn't ask for a better electrician. Would recommend 10 out of 10 times.
19:26 26 Nov 17
Kent is an all-star electrician. You can tell electricity is second nature to him. He figured out a wicked problem that was happening to many of our lights. It wasn't easy and tested our patience, however, Kent was cool, calm, and collected and figured out the issue with precision and care - a lost neutral. I must also add, we had a number of laughs while he was here. A great electrician and a wonderful person.
13:36 01 Nov 17
Skyline electrical is a great company to work with. Kent made sure that our service revision was taken care of. The budget was very reasonable and fixed other issues that anyone else would’ve charged extra for. He is very knowledgeable, efficient, and professional. I appreciate companies that go the extra mile to take care of their clients, I will continue to use their great service in the future.
15:58 27 Sep 17
Kent did a great job with some electrical issues in our apartment, making sure everything was 100% fixed and helping with a last minute problem that wasn't originally in the scope of work. Wonderful service!
21:55 16 Sep 17
Kent is amazing! He gets the job done quickly and inexpensively. He was able to work through some issues we had with our wiring. He definitely went the extra mile and make sure we were satisfied after the job was completed. I would highly recommend him for any electrical work whatsoever.
00:44 05 Sep 17
Amazing service and very knowledgeable. They even came out on a holiday and fixed some wiring in my apartment. I am very grateful to Skyline Electric for giving me peace of mind.
23:09 26 Aug 17
Kent from Skyline Electric just did a remarkable job for me. I first asked him in to solve an electrical problem with my furnace which two other tradesmen had failed to correct. He figured it out immediately. So I asked him to walk through my house with me to evaluate seven or eight other electrical problems. The house owner before me had done a lot of amateur rewiring, which turned out to be much worse than I imagined. In his walk-through Kent did a very professional, detailed analysis of each of the problems along with his proposed solutions. His fee , which seemed reasonable to me, covered eight hours of his labor plus an assistant. The job itself was a nightmare and uncovered more, seriously dangerous wiring problems (like bare wires touching old dry wood). He and his assistant worked nonstop from 10 AM to 8:30 PM. He did not ask for greater pay than his original bid. I would say his work was exceptional. He really knows what he's doing! His work is top-of-the-line and I have no doubt that he saved our house from burning to the ground.
02:05 01 Aug 17
Skyline was great and quickly solved a problem that we thought would be a huge hassle. They accommodated our crazy and moving schedule and we so appreciated their service. We will definitely call them for our next electrical need!
20:02 07 Jul 17
Kent installed a pendant light for our office recently and did a great job. I was impressed with his professionalism, advice and price. I would absolutely recommend him for any electrical project.
14:07 05 Jul 17
When you buy a new house, there's nothing better than finding your guys. (Or gals. No sexism here.) Now we've got our electrical guy! Kent's the best. He's super fast to respond to texts and calls. And he's really efficient in diagnosing issues. He installed a complicated chandelier for us, then figured out why we seemingly had no power running to our smoke & carbon monoxide detectors. He's a Nest installer, too, which is harder to find than you'd think. We've had several contractors in who obviously didn't know a thing about it. After everything Kent did for us, he charged us a ridiculously reasonable amount and was on his way. I'll absolutely use him for all electrical everything in the future. Just keep in mind, he may not be able to get to you right away, but he will get to you, and it'll be well worth it. Pro tip: Make the guy some coffee. He likes coffee.
02:03 01 Jul 17
Kent is a lifesaver. We couldn't figure out how to stop a beeping noise coming from one of our fire security alarms - after 2 hrs of trying (replacing batteries, cutting off the power, even getting a new alarm) we finally called Kent who was able to solve the problem in under an hour. we cannot thank him enough!
17:39 22 Jun 17
This is the best electrician in Chicago
02:51 21 Jun 17
What a find! I'd been saving up a bunch of little and big-ish electrical jobs in my house for a while and finally decided to bite the bullet. Kent and Jeannette (his scheduler) were SO attentive and communicative with me from the get-go. He was slammed with some huge emergency kind of jobs for bigger clients, but he and Jeannette made sure to schedule time for my non-emergency stuff, and even offered to come to my place on an evening or weekend for no extra charge.He really considers every job equally important. His pricing was very competitive, and my jobs (from switching out some hanging lamps, putting in a new halogen bulb, to bigger jobs like bringing an electrical outlet to my outdoor deck) were not going to make him a millionaire, but he treated me like they would. He's a perfectionist and wouldn't allow my lamp to hang from the ceiling any way but the exact length and direction I wanted. Plus he's so much fun to work with. He's hilarious, down to earth, and has stories that will blow your mind. At the same time, he's extremely professional, knowledgable and meticulous about his work. He comes from a long line of electricians in his family and takes his work and your safety very seriously.And i haven't even mentioned Bob yet. Bob came with Kent the second time out, and he was just as warm, friendly and professional as Kent. My house presented loads of century-old challenges to them, but they did NOT charge me extra for the extra work. They stayed true to their quote. I love these guys and feel like I have electricians in the family now. I'll definitely be calling Kent for my next job.

I called Kent after 5pm and he was very approachable...not knowing me he answered a question for a part which multiple people could not figure out today...I am happy to place this review...Thanks!!!!!!
15:45 17 Jun 17
My experience with Skyline Electric was incredible. Kent was very knowledgeable, efficient, and detail oriented. Additionally, Kent went out of his way to accomodate our schedule. We will definitely use Skyline again in the future and recommend the team to our friends.
19:23 22 May 17
I had a great experience with Kent and Skyline Electric today. Needed help with a wiring issue related to installing a next smoke detector. Everyone else I called needed to send someone out, but he was able to help me over the phone with what needed to be done at no cost. I will definitely use Skyline in the future.
02:10 11 May 17
Very knowledgeable about a very old electrical system in our three-flat. We had three other electricians come out who were unable to figure out the source of a problem occurring throughout the building. Kent was able to figure out the issue within 20 minutes and fixed it on the spot.
14:06 04 May 17
Called late night and they responded immediately. The work was very well done and completed materially BELOW the quoted price. Overall exceptionally pleased and now have a go to electrician.
00:03 04 May 17
Kent was very knowledgable and solved the problem efficiently. We couldn't have asked for a better electrician. He even went out to get additional supplies as needed to make sure the job was done correctly! I would highly recommend him for any job due to his extensive experience and commitment to excellent service.
19:26 29 Apr 17
Just moved into my new condo and wanted a Nest thermostat to replace my old setup. I purchased the device from Best Buy and asked them to install it but the Geek Squad dropped the ball in scheduling my appointment and I grew very frustrated. Skyline came to the rescue and took on the project. What I didn't realize was that my heat/ac setup was unique and complex. Knowing this I realized that I picked the right company to do this. What I found reassuring was that Kent, who completed the project, was a certified Nest installer. Kent was very helpful in walking me through each step of his installation process. Through no fault of his own he found that the first device I purchased was defective. We exchanged the bad Nest for a new one and the installation was finally completed. Overall I think anyone else would have given up due to how complex the setup of my heating/cooling unit. But Kent kept at it and found a solution to my needs. I highly recommend Skyline. I plan on calling Kent again in a few months as I need a ceiling fan installed in my 2nd bedroom. Thanks so much Kent and Skyline for all your help and hard work!!!
12:31 26 Apr 17
Kent is the best to work with. He arrived dot on time, very professional to work with, explained a few things on why we are experiencing the issue and fixed it. His prices are far more reasonable than other shops I called. I highly recommend Skyline Electric.
03:47 16 Apr 17
Excellent service - called Good Friday in the late morning with problems with 2 electrical outlets, by 8pm the same day everything was fixed! Amazingly they are open 24 hours! Kent was a pleasure to interact and communicate with, and got things done quickly. Was a pleasure to do business with them, and will definitely use them again!
22:20 13 Mar 17
Great service definitely will be my go to company!
20:02 02 Mar 17
Perfect. On time and reasonable prices. Evrything done as stated
03:36 26 Feb 17
We are new to the area and Kent was recommended to us by a decorator. He installed lights in multiple rooms very professionally. He went above and beyond by helping to repair and reinstall and antique crystal chandelier that I had brought from Boston. I can say that it looks better than it ever has. I would highly recommend him and will definitely use him again.
16:21 28 Jan 17
Ken and his staff were incredibly professional and were able to do things other electricians said could not be done. His services were very reasonably priced and he did not cut corners. He went above and beyond to make sure we had exactly what we wanted and more. If you are considering an electrician in Chicago start with Skyline.

I have been in the Real Estate Industry for 23 years including starting out in the early 90's as a Mortgage Broker, then went on to hold a Residential Certified Appraiser's License and currently hold a Managing Broker's License. My point being, is that I have dealt with countless trade contractors throughout the years. Yet, when it came to needing and finding a reliable electrician for my own personal use at my home condo, I was unable to find one. Several came by and, after several frustrating hours, and unsuccessful at finding or correcting my problems, left scratching their heads. I was very frustrated until I was referred to Kent with Skyline Electric. He arrived at my condo precisely as scheduled and was very professional and friendly. We had somewhat discussed my needs on the phone previously so Kent went straight to work. I was amazed as I watched Kent work his electrical skills and succeeded where all the others have failed in half the time! Needless to say, I have finally found the one vacant slot in my long list of contractors to fill. If you need honest and professional electrical work, I highly recommend calling Skyline Electric.
01:02 17 Jan 17
Kent is incredibly responsive and was able to make a service call for a ceiling fan repair the same day that I contacted him. He is extremely fast, efficient, and fairly priced. I will definitely use him again, and will be sure to recommend him.
17:13 08 Jan 17
Great Service. Kent installed a 220v outlet for me on New Year's Eve morning. He charged me the low end of his quoted range and completed the work efficiently. I would contract him again; happy to know a good electrician serving Chicago proper, not just the burbs. Thank you!
19:28 20 Dec 16
Responsive, quick, knowledgeable, and friendly - Kent is the way to go. I was looking to replace a couple of thermostats in my unit. Unlike a couple other electricians I had contacted, he called me back right away, scheduled an appointment the next morning and was able to come and go in a couple hours. I will definitely call him again if I need any work done.

After installing our Holiday lighting the circuit tripped repeatedly. Skyline sent over one of there team . Kent pulled a new 20 amp circuit just for the exterior outlets and solved the problem. This took place at 7 PM Saturday night and was all completed by 9 PM. Very fast response time , Clean , Fast and respectful of our home. The price was more than fair!!!!

I called Skyline at 12:30 am. We lost power in the middle of one of our late night parties I called Com-Ed and they told us it had nothing to do with there equipment. Skyline sent Kent and in 20 minutes the party was back on. The price was totally FAIR for that time of night. Vary professional quick response time. If you want a great electrician call Skyline and tell them you want KENT!!!!!!!

Kent did a great job fixing some minor electrical issues for us. He's fast and efficient and also shares fascinating stories. I definitely recommend Kent for electrical work and plan on using him again!

Kenton was great. He was very helpful on the phone and offered to walk me through how to repair my light fixture myself. I opted to have him come over and do it which he did professionally, quickly, and for a reasonable price. I'd be happy to use him again!

Kenton installed new overhead lighting throughout my entire condo - recessed cans and a chandelier. He helped me come up with the best design for my space, had great execution, and was able to make it work despite some tricky elements found in the ceiling. Additionally, he gave me several options at different price points to help me make the best decision and was flexible with scheduling. Thanks, my condo looks fantastic!

Kenton is a very knowledgable electrician and very fair in terms of pricing. He's done numerous electrical jobs for me: some small like putting in a ceiling fan and some large including rewiring my entire 70 year old house. Everything was done professionally to completion with safety mindedness always present. I HIGHLY recommend him.

I wanted my track lighting removed and recessed cans installed in their place. There was a small 4 x 4 hole that had to be cut in the ceiling. He did the removal, installation then patched and sanded the hole. You cannot even tell. He found a few issues along the way that were incorrect and corrected them as well.
