There are several reasons you might consider changing or upgrading your electrical panel. If you live in an older home with a small electrical panel, you may need to update and install a larger electrical panel. The new panel would accommodate more circuits needed for electronics or a remodel you are having done.
Also, if your home has a Federal Pacific or Zinsco electrical panel, you should consider replacing your panel as soon as possible. Those brands have been proven to fail and you and your family would be safer with a new reliable electrical panel. If you have any concerns about your panel, give us a call and we would be happy to come out and take a look at it for you.
One of the best ways to add value to your home is to remodel your kitchen and/or bathroom. We at Classic Electric have completed numerous kitchen and bathroom remodels and we are familiar with a variety of lighting options, receptacle outlet placement, adding or moving appliances, and changing existing layouts to make your home feel comfortable and be more functional for your needs.
There are numerous projects that can be completed in your garage and shop and Classic Electric has the experience and expertise you need to get it done right. Examples of these projects includes: lighting upgrades, circuits for woodworking equipment, welder or kiln circuits, adding more receptacle outlets in general, and more.
Do you have an electric vehicle and need a charging station added to your garage? Classic Electric has installed charging stations for many different types of vehicles, such a Tesla, Nissan Leaf, Chevy Bolt, BMW, Ford Focus, and Kia Soul.
If you are having a sump pump added to your home, Classic Electric can provide the necessary wiring from your electrical panel to the sump pump location. We have installed the wiring for numerous sump pumps in different configurations and always strive to complete these installations within a day. As with all projects Classic Electric completes, we make sure your sump pump wiring install is done nice, pretty, and clean.
Working on beach homes is a true passion for us here at Classic Electric, LLC. The owner, Thomas Adams, lived in Seaside, Oregon for a time and gained a genuine respect for beach communities. We have worked on houses in Cannon Beach, Seaside, Astoria, Rockaway Beach, and Coos Bay, Oregon as well as Long Beach and Ocean Park, Washington.
Wiring houses at the beach requires special skills and knowledge because of the effect of the salty air on traditional metal boxes and fixtures. It doesn’t take long for a traditional steel electrical panel or meter to look like it has been there for years due to rust build-up. We use stainless steel electrical meters and panels as well as PVC conduit instead of metal conduit. This keeps your home’s wiring looking new for years down the road and keeps your home safer because there isn’t corrosion on your electrical fixtures.
Because of the years we have spent working on homes at the Oregon Coast, we have earned the respect of and have excellent rapport with the electrical inspectors.
Thomas Adams and Classic Electric, LLC have completed numerous projects in barns and horse arenas throughout the rural countryside surrounding the Portland metropolitan area. We have installed lighting for indoor and outdoor horse arenas, lighting for horse stalls, and general wiring for both types of buildings. We have also completed projects in barns and outbuildings – whether they were a basic barn in need of simple general lighting or a large custom outbuilding.
If you need electrical work done in your outbuilding(s), please do not hesitate to contact us. We would be happy to assist you with everything from upgrading an older structure to wiring a brand new showcase arena!
