Circuit breaker panel or fuse box,
Re:initially an electric problem in my kitchen involving a bad wall receptacle. Called the building's recommended electrician who gave me pricing on a visit and cost to upgrade my fuse box to breakers. Unfortunately, he never called back to make appointment despite messages left. Eventually my stove only worked intermittently so I needed to act fearing a loose wire behind the wall. Found Skyline electric on the Yelp pages. The electrician was in my kitchen within 24 hours. Nice guy who ironically tied the problem to my tired fuse box. I had the option to get it repaired or upgrade to breakers. Skyline's price was almost half that was quoted by the first electrician. So done deal, nice company, prompt service, explanations every step of the way, clean up...all good... And my stove heats up faster than it ever did before.Nov 17, 2016
Switch and Outlet Repair
I hired Kent to run a new outlet over to my laundry area, as I recently purchased a stacked washer/dryer to replace my combo unit. Kent was very responsive and came out to take care of my request the same day. Based on the other quotes I received, his price was fair and I am confident that he did the job professionally. He even took the time to clearly explain what he had done so that I could relay that information to the appliance installers. If you need someone who you can trust at a reasonable cost, I'd definitely recommend Skyline Electric.Nov 17, 2016Verified
Needed electrical work in my house and Skyline returned my call and came in the same day. I live in Hyde Park, and some other companies did not want to go "that far south". Fixed my mysterious electrical problem right away and then installed a light fixture. Timely work, good job, fair price.May 9, 2016
I had 2 electrical outlets that would not work. I called Skyline Electric. They were busy all day so they came out in the early evening. They quickly diagnosed and fixed the problem for a fair price. I am very happy,Mar 6, 2016
Very knowledgable and prices fairly. Kent is a true professional and I have had him do numerous electrical projects at my house. I highly recommend him.May 10, 2016
