North Suburban Electric is first-rate. They're responsive, they did what they said they would do, and they just did the job well. They did some wiring and the replacing of a pan. They get an A grade overall.
They did a great job. They installed six can lights. They were clean and quick, and they did a really good job. I heard about them through the Best Pick Reports. I'd give them an A.
There was a quick response time and pretty direct, quick service. They changed out our back electrical outlet. Some relatives had also used them, so that's how we found out about them. They're an A-grade company.
They placed sixteen can lights in my house. They were on time and professional, and they completed the job within the time that they promised. I heard about the company through a neighbor. North Suburban Electric gets an A grade from me.
They put in a new circuit breaker. It worked. They were very professional, and it was a positive experience. I would give them an A rating.
