Same-Day Service | Free Estimates | Emergency Repairs


Using fully stocked vans, our commercial and industrial department performs service and repair work, remodeling, and new construction. We have completed many projects over the last 60 years in Rochester, Minnesota, including for industrial plants, hospitals, schools, retail stores, restaurants, churches, fire stations, and hotels. We assist with routine maintenance, additions, remodeling work, and complete wiring of new buildings.

Our estimators work from your plans and provide an accurate cost estimate for the project. We also develop a budget if it's a design-build job. We have several electricians on call 24/7 to respond quickly to electrical emergencies. Whatever your electrical needs are, large or small, please give us a call and we will be happy to meet them. Bigger jobs are completed under a contract.


Residential Electrical Work


Our residential department specializes in residential wiring and repair. We assist with the planning, design, and cost estimates for your new home, town house, or multifamily dwelling. We also assist with remodels, basement finishes, and additions to existing homes. Do you still have a fuse panel in your home? We can upgrade your electric service and replace the old fuse panel with a new circuit breaker panel. We add extra receptacles, switches, lights, ceiling fans, and electric heat, as well telephone, data, and TV jacks.

Our service call electricians are ready to help with any electrical issues, such as a receptacle or switch not working or partial power out. We schedule a time and date to complete simple jobs, like fixing a light, or arrange a walk-through and estimate for large projects, such as wiring an unfinished basement.

Signs & Parking Lot Lighting

WINKELS ELECTRIC, INC. offers fluorescent, neon, and LED sign repair and installation for many national companies and private owners. Using a crane truck, bucket trucks, and aerial lifts, we install and maintain neon and LED channel letter signs, border neon and LED lighting, illuminated wall signs, and pylon signs, as well as replace faces in existing signs. We can also retrofit your existing neon or fluorescent sign with LEDs, which save you money on your electric bill and maintenance costs. As a licensed electrical contractor, we have the ability to install the high-voltage wiring required for neon signs and run power to your wall sign or pylon sign. Minnesota law requires a licensed electrician to perform any work associated with electric signs.
