They did a great job installing my smart thermostat in my high rise condo, one of the few to be able to do it in the city at a fair price. Thank you skyline

These guys are absolute PROS!! It’s almost impossible to find reliable, knowledgeable, and courteous electricians that go above and beyond in the city let alone in river north.Jeanette very quickly scheduled for me to have all of my track lighting replaced, a fixture replaced, several switches swapped, and a swag chandelier installed. Kent & Steve were rock stars! This was not an easy job, I have tall concrete lofted ceilings (almost 11 feet), to which they came prepared, had all of the tools/hardware they needed handy, measured so diligently and went above and beyond to notice the little details (that I certainly don’t notice) like installing my new track fixture to compliment the curvature of my wall- great eye those two have!When the job was finished, everything was installed to my satisfaction (and theirs), they did a final inspection, they cleaned up, and even took the trash with them on their way out(which I SO appreciated as our trash room here fills so quickly)I cannot recommend these folks enough 10/10 will be calling them for my next project! Thanks Skyline ☺️

Kent recently completed electrical work at our home, and we were thoroughly impressed with his expertise. He meticulously addressed our concerns. Kent's technical skills and dedication to excellence are commendable. He communicated effectively throughout the project, making the experience seamless. We highly recommend Kent for any electrical needs – he truly delivers outstanding service.

We had a fantastic experience with Kent! He was on time, professional, answered all our questions, and with his experience and knowledge; he helped us make the most logical decisions. This is the second time we have used Skyline Electric, and it definitely won’t be our last!

Kent installed two light fixtures for us. He came a few days before to patch up the hole in the ceiling so my painter could paint over it, then came back to finish the job. He was on time, very knowledgable, and extremely helpful and easygoing. I’ll definitely be using his services again for all other electrical needs that arise. Cost and time efficient. Thanks, Kent!
02:03 26 Aug 23
Kent was personable, professional, and attentive. Our kitchen lights have never looked better. I highly recommend! Thanks Kent!

Honestly I cannot say enough good things about Skyline Electric. This is a little embarrassing admitting this publicly, but I’d called Skyline today, to see if they could help repair a ceiling fan that no longer worked, after less than a year after they’d installed a brand new ceiling fan. Kent was EXTREMELY responsive and came out to help remediate it the same evening… at 9:30pm. It turned out to be a dead 9 volt battery in the remote. WOW… so embarrassing… but yet soooo grateful that I’m dealing with a professional company that cares that much about the work that they do. I will always go back to Skyline! Thanks Kent!!!

He took the time to listen to my concerns and preferences, patiently explaining the entire process and the advantages of upgrading to a circuit breaker system. His knowledge and willingness to communicate were invaluable.During the installation, Kent's skill and attention to detail were truly impressive. He meticulously handled each component, ensuring that everything was properly installed and in compliance with safety regulations. It was clear that he possessed a deep understanding of electrical systems and took great pride in his work.What truly stood out to me was Kent's commitment to cleanliness and organization. He made sure to minimize any disruption to my home, keeping the work area tidy and leaving no mess behind. It was refreshing to see someone who not only excelled in their technical skills but also valued the overall customer experience.The results of Kent's work exceeded my expectations. The new circuit breaker system has greatly enhanced the safety and efficiency of my home's electrical setup.

Kent is by far the most professional and welcoming electrician I've ever worked with. Needed two switches replaced, not only was the work completed the same day, but the quality was incredible. I highly recommend Skyline Electric.
20:10 07 Feb 23
Kent and Dave were excellent. On top of what we called for, we had some problems with appliances installed by Abt that we didn’t even realize. They were quick, professional, and we really appreciated their help!

I needed an electrical panel to be replaced to bring it up to code. An extremely knowledgeable and friendly electrician, Kent, showed up on time and installed the unit. He was careful as far as protecting the floor of course with a dropcloth. He was extremely efficient. When he opened the panel for the first time, I was amazed that anyone could possibly know which wire goes where. Kent assured me that this was an easy task. He did a great job. Thank you, Kent. You rock!

Ken and his team are outstanding! We have hired them for a variety of small and large projects and each task is completed perfectly, promptly, and at a very fair price.

There is no better electrician in Chicagoland. Nothing but quality and professionalism took place during a complicated installation of several light fixtures and several switches (with a quick turnaround). Very impressed.

Kent and Jeanette are AMAZING!!!! They are A+++. Kent and his team are extremely knowledgeable. Jeanette from the beginning helped me in understanding the electrician world and getting prepared for our appointment. Kent came prepared and there is no task that Kent can't do. They are extremely nice individuals and very helpful and patient. Kent went out of his way to help us with issues. Jeanette was responsive and understanding. I recommend them 100%.
16:48 11 Apr 22
Kent was knowledgeable and wasted no time in fixing a panel with poor wiring, and fixed my motion-sensor switch issues. He also explained simple how-tos so that I can manage on my own. No fuss, fixed my problem and left me with good information. Pricing was upfront, transparent and honest, no hidden fees.
22:44 04 Apr 22
Who knew an electrician appointment could be such a good, satisfying experience?! Jeanette and Kent are amazing- great communication, friendly, knowledgable, and trustworthy. Kent knew exactly what was wrong and got to work replacing the breaker in my electric panel as well as the outlet on our patio. He was done in 30 minutes but did a thorough inspection, efficient without feeling rushed. I highly recommend them and they will definitely be my go-to referral. Thanks!

Kent and Alex were very responsive, personable, and did an outstanding job with all the work I needed completed in a timely manner. They took the time to always be sure and ask if I was satisfied with the job they were doing before they completed their work, and were also very careful to clean up their work area each day before leaving my house. I would highly, highly, highly recommend Skyline Electric for any electrical work you need.
23:07 31 Aug 21
Wow! Just had one of the best experience with electrician company! They were so responsive and super quick about booking and getting the job done. The electricians were very polite and professional in every way. I would definitely recommend working with this company, and now I know who to reach out anytime I have electrical issues. Thank you everyone at the Skyline Electric!
22:07 16 Aug 21
Beyond happy with skyline electric. After calling 2 HVAC companies as well as my building maintenance, everyone was clueless on the power trouble I was having with my thermostat. I heard 3 times that installing a low-voltage system in my unit would be impossible.Kent came out and within an hour the job was done. Now I can enjoy having a Google nest without issue! Couldn’t recommend enough!
17:03 29 Jul 21
Amazing job. The office was very response and kept us up to date about scheduling the two jobs we needed done. Tomasz and Alex were extremely competent, professional, and fast. I will definitely turn to Skyline for all future electrical work.
22:29 22 Jul 21
I have used Skyline several times. Highly recommend. Kent is very knowledgeable and works quickly.
17:08 12 Jun 21
Beyond helpful. Came home to all power in just my condo unit being out with no obvious problem at the circuit breaker. They were able to troubleshoot the problem immediately over the phone tracking the issue down to my building’s main breaker and walked me through how to reset it in minutes which solved my problem. Professional and were genuinely interested in solving my issue without scheduling unnecessary appointments, sketchy quotes, etc. They will be my go to electricians from now on.
20:43 10 Mar 21
Skyline Electric installed the electrical wiring and GFCI panel needed for our hot tub. They were quick to provide a quote and do the initial wiring prior to the winter weather. They were able to reschedule multiple times due to delays in the hot tub delivery, but when it finally arrived they were right on time to finish the install. Skyline Electric is great! The inspector arrived today and said they did an excellent job! Thanks Skyline Electric!

Top tier worksmanship and customer service at a fair price! Called on Christmas day and had someone at the unit in well under 24 hours. Kent completed the work perfectly.
20:25 16 Dec 20
Very professional and quick. My originally scheduled electrician from another company was a no show so I called Skyline, they were able to come a couple hours later. The job was finished in such a short amount of time and the customer service was impeccable. Would recommend!
07:50 17 Nov 20
very responsive and the person they sent (Bart) was wonderful. Accepts payment by Zelle, which is convenient.
04:13 29 Oct 20
Let me first say, that I have not officially retained Skyline for their services, but I wanted to give them a shout out for helping me when I was in a bind. I have been trying to close on my condo for 3 months now and have experienced several delays (none Skyline related) along the way. We were finally in the home stretch when my lender flagged the electrical panel as possibly needing repairs. This would yet again delay our closing which was particularly bad timing as our lease is running out and winter is quickly approaching. Due to me talking to Skyline over a month ago to inquire about an initial quote, I knew that the panel was working fine. So on short notice I reached out to them to craft a statement to send to my lender stating as such. I called them at 8:50 in the morning and by 9:50 I had not one but two statements from them that I could send to my lender to help me close on time.I will definitely give Skyline a call when I am ready to do an upgrade. Based on the reviews it sounds like their actual work is as phenomenal as their customer service. Thank you Skyline Electric!!
21:25 04 Oct 20
I can not say enough good things about this company. We had them install 26 lights, install a chandelier/fan box, replace 4 lights, move a light switch, add 2 outlets, move another outlet, and remove 2 different outlets. it was 3 full days worth of work, the guys were here right on time everyday, very friendly, and more importantly, trustworthy. They were responsive with all the questions, and flexible with changes we made after the quote. All the guys really know their stuff and double, if not triple check their work. Kent, the supervising electrician is like a magician when it comes to making things happen that most electricians would have to spend a lot of time figuring out how to make it work. It seemed like Kent researches the latest and greatest technology because he was able to comfortably explain all our options when it came to the different housings and light switches. We are extremely satisfied with the quality of their work and will be hiring them again in the future.
20:44 24 Sep 20
Perfessional and detailed on job.
17:49 20 Sep 20
Awesome job. Came on a Sunday morning to squeeze in a small job. Precisely the work I needed done.
18:29 19 Aug 20
I have used Kent and his team a number of times at a couple different properties and they always do an EXCELLENT job. They really know their stuff, the work is precise and professional, the team is fun, and they're efficient in getting things done quickly! VERY HIGHLY RECOMMEND you go with Skyline Electric!!
14:43 03 Jun 20
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.
22:36 01 Jun 20
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!
16:42 21 Mar 20
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 ❗
03:40 08 Feb 20
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!!!

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!

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!
