Oakwood Electric & Generator
Electricians in Chicago, IL
"Normally I wouldn't take the time to post a review like this, however I am so happy with Oakwood Electric & Generator that I wanted to share my experiences. Not only have I personally hired them for a project in my own home, but I have also referred them to many people, and used them through my business. They are the epitome of a family owned and operated company and I truly appreciate that. They go about their business the old fashioned way, and I know when I call their office I will be greeted directly by the owners. This husband and wife team exceeded my expectations, and I would recommend them to anyone!"

"We had a kitchen remodel. We had no lighting before. (Over the sink and table.) They added lighting, new circuits for microwave, dishwasher, disposal, and refrigerator which we moved to a no electric area.Of course, new switches with everything. (As requested by the designer, one of your Houzz winners, Linda Navara.)One of the pendants was not working and they completely rebuilt it.
