"Installed new service from PGE to new panel. Added generator plug adapter, RV 50amp service and new outlet in garage for welder and compressors. Updated breakers to current codes. And for any future electrical work, remodels and additions Thomas at Classic Electric will be our only call. We passed inspections without any issues. In addition he listened to our needs and provided great options. We highly recommend!!"
Ed P., Tualatin, OR
"Thomas did an amazing job on our remodel job. The quote seemed high, but he guaranteed that it wouldn't change no matter what was discovered mid job. Our couple day job turned into a two week job, but the final result was better than we could have imagined. He worked effectively, communicated well, and worked around our crazy remodel schedule (we were our own general contractor). No matter the size of the project, I will definitely use Thomas and Classic Electric again."
Tyler S., Beaverton, OR
"We got a bid to add some 220V outlets to our garage for some shop equipment. I know the fundamentals of electrical stuff but that's about it. He came out and we were out of space on our panel and had a sub panel already, we were just out of room in our 1976 house with a 125AMP line. We ended up replacing the panel, line, meter adding the 220V outlets (2) and 4 canned lights. Tons of work, not a ton of money. The old panel looked like a birds nest from hell with wire leading now where and aluminum and copper lines wire nutted together. We got a new panel with 200AMP, cleaned up the lines, and he added the breakers at the meter. The panel is sweet, tons of room to grow. He was very good at explaining things, follow-up, customer service and reasonable prices. I would hire him again in a heartbeat."
Kathryn E., Portland, OR
"Thomas is incredibly knowledgeable and easily the best electrician we've ever worked with. He goes above and beyond in his work. We had him do about 20 can lights in a current remodel and he didn't make one extra hole in the ceiling. It looks like the lighting was all original to the house. He also completely updated the kitchen electrical all to code and was able to explain all details to us. He is timely, organized, has great communication and great ideas. We will be using him for all further electrical needs."
McKayla H., Wilsonville, OR
"Thomas is THE EXPERT!!! He provides exceptional work and service in everything he does!!! We have now had him do alot of work on our old house and every time he exceeds our expectations!! Our first job with Thomas was an urgent new plug for air conditioning during a crazy summer heat wave. He squeezed us into his busy schedule and had us cooled off in no time! Since then we have had him fix all kinds of odds and ends old house issues we had ignored and accumulated for years, gave us new dedicated plugs for space heaters/refrigerators etc, added outdoor lights/fans and switches to transform our back patio space and put in a beautiful new panel. Our house is old and tried to throw him alot of wrenches, no problem for Thomas. He is the guy for retrofitting old houses!! He has decades of experience and amazing patience that guides him through whatever surprises your house may try to toss his way. Thomas' work is meticulously planned out and executed to perfection! I have never worked with a contractor that had better communication or pride in his work!! Thanks Thomas, we love what you have done for our home!!"
Tiffany B., Sherwood, OR
"We had an outlet issue in my garage/outdoor outlets that took much of my time, and I called Classic Electric. Tom called back promptly and helped trouble-shoot the issue. His expertise and instructions quickly resulted in the solution! You can tell that he really is dedicated to his profession, provides honest advice, and has a genuine willingness to help others. I will definitely choose Classic Electric for all my future electrical needs!"
Lorne Y., Dundee, OR
"He was great, calling me early and arriving early. He was so fast too! I tried to find an electrician, but being close to Christmas it was hard to find someone available less than two weeks out. He promptly got back to me, coming out the very next day. I will definitely use Classic Electric again!"
Mark B., Sherwood, OR
"Needed assistance with moving an outlet to hide cords behind a wall mounted television. Thomas was quick to respond to my email inquiry on his website. Setup an appointment for an evaluation of the job and estimate within a week. Notified me when he thought he might run a bit late and still ended up arriving on time. Quote was competitive. Polite and friendly and did not mind a bit of an affection assault from my exhuberant pups who were excited to see a new face. After sending me the estimate I had a few clarifying questions that he promptly answered and helped me come up with solutions that not only met my needs but helped to keep my costs down. Once work was agreed on, he worked with my schedule to find a time to complete the service and within a week the job was complete. Again was pleasant and professional on the day of installation. There were a few “curveballs” that the construction of my home apparently through his way, but he simply adapted his plan and methodically went about is work. The job was completed in a timely manner. Left the work space clean like he was never there. Very happy with the result! Will definitely reach out to Thomas again if additional electrical work comes up!"
Braidon F., Wilsonville, OR
"I called as I couldn’t determine if we needed to replace a breaker. He asked me a few questions about the issue, told me what he thought was wrong. He was right!! He saved me $300!! He knows what he’s doing, and he’s honest!"
James T., Sherwood, OR
"Thomas responded quickly, was friendly and helpful. He diagnosed our problem within minutes of arrival. Very professional. Thanks!"
Jon M., Sherwood, OR
"I've used Thomas before. He did good work then, and did good work this time too. He took care of my house, and the work turned out looking great! He's very knowledgeable and offered me some guidance on some additional projects I will take on myself later."
Peter R., Tigard, OR
"Thomas came by to help with new light fixtures and installation of a new one. Great work. Very professional. Will work with him again and would recommend."
Alex V., Tualatin, OR
"Called in hoping to get a service call due to a shorted GFCI outlet. They were unable to fit me in, however Thomas helped me trouble shoot my electrical issue over the phone offered up his opinion on how to remedy my situation and recommended another electrical service. Helpful and friendly, they will have my future business."
Jeff B., Sherwood, OR
"When searching for an electrician to complete a few jobs at my house, I found great reviews of Classic Electric on Nextdoor. I called and spoke with Thomas. He was professional and provided an estimate for the work (installing a new ceiling fan/light and switch). His bid was fair and competitive to other companies I had called that day. I hired Classic Electric and Thomas showed up on time and completed the work efficiently. We were so pleased with the work that we hired him again (this time to install outdoor video cameras). Thomas (Classic Electric) is a reliable, honest, and competent electrician. I appreciate the great communication prior to the appointment via phone and e-mail as well as the explanation at the job site. I would recommend Thomas without hesitation to anyone looking for a great electrician who prices his jobs fairly, is friendly, clean and competent. Thank you Classic Electric!"
Kristin B., Beaverton, OR
"One of the BEST! Thomas was professional and did an incredible job. He is honest, one time and has some of the best quality work I have even seen. He takes pride in doing the job right. He cleans up after a job and ensured that I I knew all I needed to know about the work before he left."
Diana C., Wilsonville, OR
"We had an electrical issue (non-emergency) that we wanted repaired so we sent an email on Sunday night. They called us first thing in the morning! Because of COVID19, we were concerned about having someone in the house. They were so understanding and helpful and walked us through some troubleshooting which corrected the problem. They wouldn't take any money for their time and expertise. I couldn't recommend them more highly--responsive, knowledgeable and outstanding customer service!"
Dana B., Portland, OR
"Thomas installed a few new circuits for my garage and outside. He was on time for both the estimate and the day of work. He even went to extra effort to hide the conduit and make it look very clean. Overall he did a great job. Thanks!"
Bryan P., Sherwood, OR
"Thomas was great! We built a covered outdoor area and wanted to get lighting and a ceiling fan installed. He promptly responded to a request to come out for a quote, took care of all the permits needed, cleaned up some wiring incorrectly installed by the previous DIY homeowner, and installed everything we asked for. He was very professional and knowledgeable, explained the process clearly, and cleaned up after all the work he completed. I highly recommend him!"
Angela J., Sherwood, OR
"This is an owner operated company that we have utilized twice now at our home in Washington County. I work in the construction industry and it is always a pleasure when sub-contractors are prompt, courteous and get right to the task at hand. Thomas definitely deserves 5 Stars Plus, and comes highly recommended."
Doug T., Tualatin, OR
"When we learned very quickly that electricity was something best left to the experts, Thomas was our first call--and our only call. We had planned to get bids from several electricians, but once we met Thomas at Classic Electric, we stopped searching. Not only was he prompt, honest, and very courteous, he was also extremely professional. Thomas was very upfront with project costs and time, and had everything done well ahead of what was promised. Thomas even sent us a thank you note in appreciation for our business. It's really rare to find his level of work ethic (and commitment to a job well done) these days. Thank you for your help, Classic Electric!"
Laura S., Sherwood, OR
"So happy I found Classic Electric!! Thomas recently installed 14 LED canned lights in my home, with dimmer switch, as well as center lighting in two bedrooms. Almost all required brand new wiring and Thomas did a fantastic job! Very impressed! I appreciated his consistent communication throughout the entire process and was very happy that my work was able to be completed within days after receiving the detailed quote! Will definitely use Classic Electric for all my future electrical work! Thanks again Thomas!!"
Janae W., King City, OR
"Thomas Adams of Classic Electric recently completed lighting work at our new home in the Villebois Subdivision in Wilsonville. Our home is a Polygon home and thus came with substandard builder grade lighting in all four of the bedrooms. The one small LED pendant placed center to the closet doors in each room did not come close to providing adequate lighting in the rooms. Thomas installed new flush mount lighting in the center of the secondary bedrooms and canned lighting and a dimmer switch in the master bedroom. He also came to the rescue to fix a substandard installation of a fireplace blower by another well known firm that installed the blower without permit, broke the bracket that was provided with the kit and did not mount the control switch on the wall as we had requested. And they did not pull a permit as was required by code. If you are looking for a professional that will be on time, communicate clearly, compete the work exactly as you desire and provide a level of service rarely found these days, we highly recommend Thomas for your home needs. We were very happy with his work and glad to see that there are professionals like him still making homes brighter for us. Thanks Thomas. Awesome job!"
Doug P., Wilsonville, OR
"I'm a residential contractor and worked with Thomas of Classic Electric for the first time. We did a master bath remodel. Had a wonderful experience. He was a timely and clear communicator which has been my #1 problem with other electricians in the past. He's very knowledgeable about his craft and I can tell he cares. His prices are also very fair. Would highly recommend him and would work with him again."
Kimiya J., Portland, OR
"Thomas is extremely professional and communicative. I work with a lot of contractors and small businesses in my line of work and went out on a limb to hire someone I didn't know. Hands down, best experience with a contractor ever! I will absolutely refer him to anyone needed electrical work in the future."
Brina S., Sherwood, OR
"Thomas installed a ceiling fan 18' up. The original electricians made some odd decisions. As well as installing our fan, he fixed the issue with the previous electrician's work. We are very pleased. We are really enjoying the improved air movement."
Barbara B., Beaverton, OR
"Thomas installed two ceiling fans for us and he did an amazing job! He made sure all of the details were squared away before we started and also explained the job to me. He charged us the price he quoted (which was significantly lower than another local company we called) and kept the work areas clean. He also made sure our new smoke alarm was plugged in and working. I appreciated the extra customer service. A huge thank you to Thomas!"
Charae G., Portland, OR
"Awesome!! I called Classic Electric since they were local and had great reviews on here. They did not disappoint. I talked to Thomas on the phone to schedule an appointment. I needed a sump pump wired in under my house and also was having trouble with a GFI outlet. Thomas knew exactly what the problem was with the GFI when I told him what was wrong and explained how to fix it. Who does that?! I had called a few other electricians and gave them the same information. They were all two months out for an appointment and none of them gave any suggestions as to how I could fix the problem myself. Thomas saved me a couple hundred bucks over the phone! So I had him come out to wire up my sump pump. Thomas was punctual, professional, and extremely knowledgeable. He even cut me some slack when the job went from a single circuit to two due to him finding instructions that were mistakenly left under the house by the company that installed the pump. Thomas did an outstanding job and charged me a fair price. It's nice to know there are still guys out there who take pride in what they do and aren't just there for a "trash and dash" to make a quick buck. I will definitely be calling Classic Electric for any future electrical needs, and you should, as well!!"
Paul C., Tigard, OR
"Thomas is great. He gets back to you, he is willing to work with your schedule, and he does quick, clean, quality work."
Charles C., Tigard, OR
"Thomas takes great pride in his work & craftsmanship. Thomas just completed a lengthy project for me (about 5 weeks off and on) and never once did I have to babysit him (call him day before or day of to make sure he would be there or to remind him of work that needed to be completed by a certain date). He is definitely not the "typical" contractor that tries to rush through the job just to finish & get paid. I always knew everything was getting done the way it should be and he truly cares how everything looks too, which is a big plus. This is only the start of a very large remodel for us and we will certainly work with Thomas again when we are ready for the next phase of electrical work. I will say, he does like to complain a little bit, which he admits to, but no one is perfect and if that's his one vice, so be it. I would without hesitation refer him to clients, family & friends and I will."
Hayley S., Tualatin, OR
"Only 5 stars?! if I could give Thomas 10 stars I would. My new home had some real issues, and Thomas went above-and-beyond to resolve them all. He was generous with his time and knowledge, and went out of his way to finish my complex project on schedule. I found him to be honest and trustworthy, and I'm very pleased with his work. Will definitely use him again if needed."
Kate W., Tigard, OR
"Same day service and they worked to my schedule...plus plus."
Monique V., Tualatin, OR
"Thomas was more than what I expected. Very professional and knowledgeable. We had a panel change and a new circuit ran and it was picture perfect. Thank you very much."
Warren K., Tigard, OR
"Thomas was great. He was very professional and does a very clean job. I had roughly 8 recess lighting put up and he did an excellent job and highly recommend him."
Brijesh P., Portland, OR
"Thomas took on an electrical job I can only describe as one of biblical proportions! Adnara Equestrian Center is a boarding facility in Aurora that had previously been owned by a do-it-your- self kind of guy using duct tape and bailing twine. The wiring in the main boarding barn was a hodge podge of disaster waiting to happen. After meeting with several electricians to assess the scope of the job I chose to work with Classic Electric because Thomas had a can-do attitude and assured me the end product would be both up to code and permitted. It was obvious in the walk through he knew what he was talking about and the size and complexity of the job did not scare him off.I truly say working with Thomas was a pleasure due to his professionalism and work ethic. He gave us many suggestions for functionality and cost savings which were much appreciated on a project of this size. Now our barn is well lit, plugs are in good places, switches make sense and most importantly I feel safe knowing Thomas brought everything up to standard. His experience with old houses and barns certainly showed as he unraveled the years of do-it-yourself wiring we inherited. Thanks Thomas!"
Theresa A., Aurora, OR
"I chose Classic Electric for a small-but-important job based on positive reviews here, and I am certainly glad -- Thomas was quick, responsive, reasonable and professional. Definitely shouldn't be the exception, but it was SO great to have such an easy, painless and quick response. Thomas came by the day after I first called him and he delivered the quote that evening, as promised. Our schedules worked out and he was able to come by the next morning and was finished well before noon -- Everything installed, working and cleaned up less than a day after I called him(!).I know I'll be calling him again for my next project!"
Mark K., Portland, OR
"Thomas is Fantastic!!! On time, on budget, extremely professional, absolutely fair and honest! And as a bonus he is a perfectionist in his trade!"
Rachel P., Dundee, OR
"Thomas gets 5 stars from everyone because he is the best electrician we have ever used!!! We do a couple of projects a year & and we are thankful we found him. He is punctual & professional and his prices are excellent. Above all he is neat and tidy and cleans up after himself, he never leaves a mess like other tradespeople."
Suzie B., Portland, OR
"Thomas was the greatest. He is very intelligent, professional, fast, and I felt he was reasonably priced. He shared information with anything he did. He saved our lives, literally. We had a plug behind our couch we never used and it had not been installed right by builder. It was about to start a fire, it had already turned brown. Thank you Thomas. I highly recommend him."
Sue B., Portland, OR
"We had Classic Electric come out last week to switch out a 50amp plug with a 30amp plug for a new dryer. Thomas did a terrific job and the price was perfect. I will call Classic Electric again for any future electrical work I need on my home."
Jason C., Beaverton, OR
"We did a remodel of our 1970's home, and Thomas was by far our FAVORITE professional. He had vision for our home with light placement, outlet functionality, panel adjustments, and laying ground work for electrical projects we would like to do in the future. He was reliable, thorough, knowledgeable, and friendly. With the exception of a couple add-on projects that we initiated, Thomas's initial estimate was the amount of the final bill, regardless of hiccups encountered along the way. Hiring Thomas was the best choice we made in our remodel, and I couldn't recommend him any more highly!"
Alison S., Beaverton, OR
"You will not find a better electrician than Thomas with Classic Electric.
We had our 1928 home updated to 200 amp service, as well as numerous other upgrades throughout our home. On his initial walkthrough, Thomas suggested several things we should do to receive a more accurate (and justifiable) estimate and he would come back to re-evaluate. So we labeled some problem outlets, created an opening for the attic, etc… No other electrician had bothered to suggest this approach which resulted in their vague and over-estimated numbers. But Thomas’ estimate was detailed, competitive and left us knowing exactly what to expect. The work was started the exact time and day that was promised. He started and finished each day like clockwork. Before leaving, he would clean up, remove all trash and walk through the progress for the day. The level of professionalism and courtesy was always at 10.
Aside from the stellar day-to-day experience, I would consider Thomas a sage and an artist when it comes to wiring. Knowing a bit about electrical myself, I had plenty of questions to ask and he was eager to share his 20 years of knowledge and experience. He would also explain where certain changes were being made, and that extra work was being added to ensure the job was not only finished as spec’d but that it met his high aesthetic and quality standards — quickly following with “I’m not charging extra, I just want this to be right.” Needless to say, everything was completed to our satisfaction and beyond. Thanks Thomas!"
Matt W., Portland, OR
"Thomas is the only electrician I will ever use for my current and future electrical projects. Not only did he provide prompt and efficient service but he always went the extra mile to ensure I was completely satisfied with the final result. I had numerous new switches and boxes installed with not a single piece of sheetrock damaged either upstairs or down. Thomas was the only electrician that guaranteed me he could do this and then delivered! I am an extremely satisfied customer."
