Welcome to Dexter Electric

Northbrook, Illinois Electrical Contractors

Focusing on attention to detail, project organization, responsiveness, and technical knowledge, we at Dexter Electric Company consistently deliver projects on time by asking the right questions and staying ahead of the construction process. We work with a lot of the most reputable builders, general contractors, designers, and architects in the Chicago area and are continuously building and expanding our client base by providing high-quality electrical services and competitive pricing.

With extensive experience in numerous construction environments, we have never met a project we couldn't tackle. From renovations of historic and landmark homes in Chicago's Lincoln Park and Gold Coast to condominium renovations in numerous mid and high rises on the Gold Coast, we are always at the top of our game.

In Lincoln Park, we have worked on some of the largest and most prestigious homes on Howe, Orchard, Burling, and Dayton Streets, among many others. Our ability to work in concert with other trades, designers, architects, integrators, etc. streamlines the construction process. We do everything we can to help foster a smooth construction process, offering suggestions when appropriate but being cognizant not to undermine the efforts of the architect, designer, or builder.

DEC also offers more than the typical electrical contractor because we are a Lutron Homeworks and QED shades silver dealer. If we are working on a project where lighting control is requested, a third party is not required. We have specified, installed, and programmed fully centralized Lutron Homeworks systems on 10,000-plus square foot homes or hybrid systems where only certain areas or on the system.

We specialize in retrofit installations as well if you would like to convert a home with standard switching to a home with full lighting control. If an integrator or audiovisual contractor is already on the job, no problem - we have outstanding relationships with many of the top integrators in the Chicago area and our knowledge of their systems makes for a much smoother project execution.

On our commercial projects, we have worked on and continue to work on some of the most recognizable establishments are the Chicago area. We have extensive experience working on restaurants, bars, stores, schools, factories, etc. We have recently completed a LEED gold project in River North and are also working towards our LEED certification. We are also looking into becoming a solar panel installer and dealer in the near future. We are constantly working to further our knowledge of new technologies and disciplines, especially in regards to the Green building initiatives being implemented.

No job is too large or too small for Dexter Electric. We know we are only as good as the strength of our relationships. We are family-run business and have been providing an outstanding product for more than 25 years, and plan on being here for a long time to come.
