Estimate to install a wall switch and ceiling fixture was quick and competitive. He included me in the decision-making process of how he was going to approach unforeseen circumstances. No extra charges. Would definitely recommend his electrical work.

I had them remove electrical outlets that were on the backside out our old patio for a hot tub that a previous owner had. We have no use for them since we don't have a hot tub and there are already electrical outlets on the side of the house. We specifically needed these remove because we were having our patio replaced. They did a fast and quality job. Would use them again for other electrical needs.

Eddie showed up on time, did the work efficiently, and charged a fair rate. I would definitely use him again and recommend him to family and friends. Friendly guy, very knowledgeable. He explained everything that was wrong with my electrical system and how he was going to fix it.

Eddie is absolutely amazing, as a worker and person. He came to remove and install a dishwasher and ended up fixing messed up wiring and plumbing. He was so kind and honest and did a fantastic job. I will hire him again and again and would recommend that everyone do the same.

Review by in Elgin, IL
Eddie was punctual, professional, and his fees were very reasonable. He removed an old garbage disposal and installed a new one, added an electrical outlet for the outlet plug for the Waste King Disposal and replaced metal pipe with PVC pipe. I would definitely hire Eddie again and would highly recommend him. I plan to share his business cards with all my neighbors. Our past experiences with contractors has not been positive so we will call Eddie against when we have other home projects. Eddie told me that Home Advisor did a thorough background check on him including providing his electrician license & proof of insurance before he was listed as a contractor on their website.

Review by in Rolling Meadows, IL
Project: Install Electrical Switches, Outlets, and Fixtures
We hired Eddie to install lights in our TV room, and discovered we had old cloth covered wires. After doing a great job on the lights, we hired Eddie back to take care of the wiring. The wiring issue was much more extensive than first thought, but Eddie was very upfront about every step in the process - both in time and dollar estimates. We were very happy at the end of the project when the final bill came in spot on with what we were expecting. If we need any electrical work done in the future, Eddie will be the first we call.

Seal of Approval

What is the screening process that Service Professionals go through in order to become members of the HomeAdvisor network?

  1. Verify Trade License
    HomeAdvisor checks to see if the business carries the appropriate state-level license.
  2. Verify Insurance
    As a part of our screening process, we encourage professionals to carry general liability insurance. We require coverage for hundreds of services.
  3. Verification of State Business Filings
    For business types that require a Secretary of State filing, we confirm that the business is in good standing in the state in which it is located.
  4. Criminal Records Search
    HomeAdvisor uses 3rd party data sources to conduct a criminal search for any relevant criminal activity associated with the owner/principal of the business.
  5. Sex Offender Search
    We confirm that the owner/principal is not listed on the official state Sex Offender web site in the state in which the owner/principal of the company is located.
  6. Bankruptcy Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the history of the principal/owner of the business for bankruptcy filings by or against them.
  7. Legal Search for Civil Judgments
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for state level civil legal judgments entered against them.
  8. Liens Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for liens placed against them.
  9. Identity Verification (SSN)
    HomeAdvisor verifies the social security number(s) of the owner/principal for identity check purposes. This check applies primarily to smaller business entities.
  10. Identity Verification (Reverse Phone Lookup)
    We conduct a reverse business phone lookup to identify records matching the phone number information provided by the business.

NOTE: Member service professional information confirmed as described above may change or expire over time; while HomeAdvisor attempts to maintain accurate and up-to-date information, and confirms changes when notified, we cannot guarantee that profile and screening information is accurate. Therefore, we recommend that before working with a service professional you verify that information presented is still current and/or acceptable to you.
