If you’re like most of our customers throughout the Elgin area, you couldn’t say exactly how to determine whether your home needs to be rewired. Our certified technicians consult with you about your residential electricity requirements and assess the safety of your current electrical system before getting to work, ensuring that your property is as fully and safely equipped as possible.


At Hines Electric, we encourage building owners to err on the side of caution for all commercial electric work.

Got back to me right away, and got the work done the next day. Reasonably priced. Very nice and even friendly with my dogs! I’ll be keeping Hines electric in mind for future work!

Hines Electric was very thorough, always on time and exceeded our expectations all the way through and including gaining city inspection acceptance. Will definitely call Patrick Hines again when I need electrical work done.

Mr Hines was very through in tracking down the issue I was having. He explained everything he was doing and why. I will hire him for any other electrical needs I would have.

He was willing to problem solve a difficult issue with an old house. He was reliable and fair. I will recommend him to friends.
- Sue McCracken

Patrick went above and beyond expectations with troubleshooting support over the phone on a Sunday and then a same day service call Monday. Awesome!

Hines Electric has done an excellent job. They are efficient and the job cost was reasonable. I recommend them to anyone that has a need for electrical work.
- Wallace Panzer

Patrick did a great job transforming my garage from a hodgepodge of old lead wire, fuses, and Romex laid on top of the drywall to be up to code with all the wiring neatly laid in conduit. Highly recommend. The work was fast and correct. I had no issues with the city inspector passing it.
