    5.0 Helen E. Carol Stream, IL

    Tom was great to work with, I felt very comfortable with him from the time of the estimate to the end of job completion. I will be hiring REC for all my electrical needs.

    Extremely happy with the work. He was very fast and left virtually no evidence that he had even been there. I would recommend to anyone.

    5.0 Jennifer K. Woodridge, IL

    Very personable, honest and helpful!!! 5 Star all the way! I'll be using them for all of our work.

    0.0 Grant L. Glen Ellyn, IL

    Extremely happy with the work that was done. I did a full demo on my bathroom and am doing most all the work myself. However, I did hire out the electrical. They ran all new lines in my bath and upgraded my service panel to 200 amps. I watched Tom run all the lines in the bath and was impressed with how quick, neat, precise and well thought out everything was done. He was very helpful in explaining everything. I was initially hesitant to hire out any of the work on my bathroom because of all the bad work being done out there. However, I wouldn't hesitate recommending them to anyone.

    the work was done well

    5.0 Brian A. South Elgin, IL

    Tom was extremely helpful. He addressed our needs and provided us with details about what services we would benefit from. We appreciated him coming out on a Friday evening. We will be calling to set up a time for him to come out and complete some much needed electrical work.


    The price is not open before the service (provide a range only). Then increase after the service

    5.0 Omaar N. Willowbrook, IL

    Tom of Reliable Electric has been one of the best subcontractors I have ever employed, responsible and hard worked has done a very good job every time and on time. Had in the past and will recommend to anyone who inquires about his company in the future.


    Very professional and yes, reliable, as the company name implies. Tom was very thorough from start to finish; from explaining how he was going to perform the projects, to getting the appropriate permits, to cleaning up, and coming back when the inspector came in to inspect the electrical work we had done. We plan on calling him again for a few more electrical projects we will need to do in the near future.

    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.
