If your home was built in the 1960’s to the late 1970’s, there is a good chance that electrical wiring in your home might be aluminum wire instead of copper wiring. Since the mid-1970’s, only copper wiring has been used in homes, due to aluminum wiring was found to pose a fire hazard. You might need to have aluminum wiring replacement done in your Portland home. Aluminum wiring is can be a fire hazard wherever it is spliced or makes a connection with an outlet, switch, circuit breaker or other component of an electrical system. One reason aluminum wiring is such a fire hazard is because it shrinks and expands depending on the temperature. These changes to the aluminum wires can result in overheating, sparks and fires. Due to such safety risks, only copper wiring has been used for electrical systems since the late 1970s. Unfortunately, many homes in the Portland area still have this old, unsafe aluminum wiring installed. Our Portland electricians can replace your house’s aluminum wiring with copper wiring and upgrade it for safety. At Star Electrical Service, Inc, our goals is to keep your home safe, provide quality work, excellent customer service and finish your project on time and within budget.

Robert (Buzz) C.
Called for service late in the morning, electrician replied would check in with me in the afternoon, 100 degree day! Afternoon electrician called said was on the way. The electrician was very friendly when he arrived, diagnosed the problem in no time and repaired. Was very pleased at the speed of service, the quality and the electrician. Will keep this company name on file to use again!
Description of Work
Wall plug ins not working
Rich H.
It was a puzzle. Half of our house had electricity and half did not. It was not the electric company's line, and though they tried, they could not force trip our line to indicate where the problem might lie. We contacted Star Electrical Services Inc. Gholam quoted his prices and said he could be out that afternoon. He said he would text when he finished the job he was on. He texted right when he said he might, to let us know when he was on the way and arrived earlier than estimated, which was awesome. When he arrived he did a check of several possible problems, discovered many and realized the job would take longer than any of us wanted to spend on a Friday night. After making sure the house was safe (and we did still have power in the kitchen, so we had some light and food options), we agreed he would return first thing in the morning. He arrived well within the time frame he had given us, and promptly got to work fixing what needed to be fixed and making sure the offending outlets were now well above the standard of accepted code, (as I had suspected shortcuts may have been previously taken with the code, it put my mind at ease to hear Gholam say he was fixing to a higher standard... it didn't take any more time and the outlets are now much more secure.) His professionalism, ethics and wealth of knowledge about how the electrical system should work was greatly appreciated. He definitely treated us (the customers), with the utmost of respect and kindness. He charged a fair rate (there was no extra fee for coming back the next day), and completed the job in a very timely and efficient manner, checking to make sure all the issues we had had been addressed before any paperwork was done.. We feel very secure in the job he did ( and feel much safer with the state of our outlets now!). We would not hesitate to recommend or use his services in the future.
Description of Work
With our lights out, Gholam located the faulty outlets and repaired them.

Alix L.
It went very well. Gholam appears to be extremely knowledgeable about his trade and was willing to take the time to explain the job. He was very neat and tidy (something not true of some other trades people) which we really appreciated. We are having a remodel soon and hope to hire him again to install lighting.
Description of Work
Because we are changing our plumbing service, we needed to have new ground rods installed. Gholam came out and gave an estimate, performed the work and it all went easily and well.
Jereme C.
I was not home during the time of install, but the work done was very professional. All inspections were passed with ease and no mess was left behind. I'd be happy to work with Star Electrical Service again in the future as the need arises.
Description of Work
Installed dedicated electrical circuits for heat pump and furnace as well as a GFCI outlet.
Brian M.
It went great. Star came out for my estimate, and we right on time. They looked everything over gave me prices for various options I wanted to explore. They were very easy to talk to as we went over pros and cons of my options. When they came out to do the work they were very efficient and did a great job. Everything was exactly as discussed. I'm looking forward to having them back out add some security lighting as well.
Description of Work
I had star out to install a new breaker box, and GFCI outlets, and other misc needed electrical work.
