Thornton Electric offers a comprehensive list of services. The ‘Services’ tab in the menu bar displays a drop down menu showing just some of what we do. Rest assured that, if it has anything to do with electrical, we work on it.

Reliable, Efficient & Cost Effective Electrical Services

We have been locally owned since 1983 and know Oregon building codes and older wiring systems as well as state of art systems. And we can help you integrate them when adding on to an existing building. There is no substitute for experience and know-how when it comes to electrical work. We can save you time and money by doing it right the first time.

Preventative Maintenance

Because electrical wiring, boxes and circuits exist behind the scenes, most people don’t think about them until there is a problem. The old saying “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure” is especially true when it comes the electrical wiring in your home or business. One of the most common issues we help with is to create dedicated circuits for appliances. Having a freezer full of food go bad is far more costly than installing a dedicated circuit for it.

Perhaps the most important issue is electrical fire safety. According to the U.S. Fire Administration, “During a typical year, home electrical problems account for 28,600 fires and $1.1 billion in property losses. 53% of residential electrical fires involve electrical wiring.” For more information, please see our page dedicated to Fire Safety.
