We are beyond happy using Altap's services and Bahram was an absolute professional. He essentially got everything fixed and running properly within 35 minutes. We will absolutely use Altap's services again. More...

I had to upgrade my electricity panel for additional capacity to support air conditioning install. I reached out to Altap electrical based on Yelp review and I was not disappointed. He was quick to pick up the call and suggested keeping the price low and not ripping out the old panel housing from the wall. Got my electricity panel upgraded by Bahram (owner). He also installed couple of power outlets in the house. He did a solid job with good results. I had some issues with power not returning to the section of the house connected to one particular fuse, and Bahram was quick to come over multiple times to resolve the issue.One minor quirk with him:He always picks up the phone within couple of rings, which has a side effect of being frequently interrupted by others customers while he is explaining you something.

I am very happy with the work that was done with Altap. I needed to put recessed lighting in one bedroom, and troubleshoot a problem with our bathroom fan tripping the GFCI outlets. I contacted them through Yelp, and received a reply the same day. Once I chatted with Bahram about what we needed, he sent an estimate the next day. We set up a time within the week. I was most impressed with how quickly the work was done. They arrived within the window I was given, and were done in under 2 hours.I would absolutely recommend them based on the work they did, how quickly they responded, and how efficient they were when they completed the work. Bahram was also friendly and a pleasure to work with. More...

Bahram was able to solve our electrical problem almost as soon as he got there.  Terrific personality and able to do what he says.  Will be using his service again.

I said I would definitely to use Altap again and I did!A contractor came in to install a new cooktop for me, and after he left I found the wiring looked weird and some parts were not working. So I called Bahram. He came at the earliest possible time, discovered the contractor made mistakes on the wiring, and fixed the issue. It is really a blessing to have a reliable/trustworthy electrician like Bahram More...

Bahram to the rescue again. This was the second time we called Altap, this time to troubleshoot an outdoor electrical panel and not only did he fix that in short order, but also found and fixed a couple other minor issues as well. Bahram is very conscientious, meticulous, and efficient in his work. He is very transparent as to what he will do and how much it will cost - we will definitely call him anytime we need electrical work done in future. More...

I turned on my washer 5 AM. Immediately I saw light bulb flash, fire and flash light along the outlet as well as smell the burn. We tried to call three electrical contractors. Luckily, Bahram is able to come. It took only 10 min he find the problem. Bahram called PG&E immediately to report the emergency. The unstable power supply smash all my kitchen appliances, stereo system and small appliances. Bahram is not only amazing he save our 2 million dollars house, our life as well as bunch of wild birds, trees in my yards. If you have any doubt about your house electricity issue, DON'T WAIT, CALL BAHRAM More...

Bahram was amazing! Our A/C stalled and we have a 5 month old who relied on the cool temperature. Bahram came out late at night and spend several hours working to identify the issue. He even took a look at another electrical issue we had in our living room and was able to solve it! Dependable, honest and responsive, would definitely call him again - thanks, Bahram! More...

Bahram gave me a call to advise on a tankless water heater and costs for electrical. He gave me good advice to hold off that would save me because the ROI is just not there at the moment. Thanks Bahram!!

I called about a faulty security light, and Altap was the first to respond out of all my queries. They came the same day to troubleshoot the issue--turns out I installed the light correctly, but there was a wiring issue within the wall. They fixed it that day, no additional charge. I couldn't be more impressed and happy with the results! More...

Bahram and team installed recessed lighting in our home and we couldn't  be happier with the service overall. Bahram was very responsive to our request for a quote and was very transparent with the cost throughout. He gave us very valuable suggestions throughout the installation process according to his expertise. His team worked quickly and cleanly and were happy to adjust things as they went along. Very honest, very reliable, great work. More...

This review is long overdue. I had Bahram and his team install bunch of led recess lights and replaced some of the old can lights thought out my house. His team was efficient and very thorough on their job.  I didn't like one of the outlet switch replacement they did. Bahram came back and replaced in a timely manner. He responded quickly for other projects as well. More...

Had Altap (Bahram and his team) work on installing kitchen recess lighting and also had my old subpanel replaced.  He mentioned that my old panel might be prone to fire and best to get that replaced.  The cost was very competitive and you can tell they know what they are doing when doing the electrical work.  8 cans of recess lighting done in about 1.5 hours.  Much faster than i thought, but then, as i said, they know what they are doing.  Also patched up the ceiling.  Sub panel took about 4 hours with 2 person working on it.  Bahram is very  pleasant to work with and they are on time and left the place clean.  I would definitely recommend him for your electrical work.

Braham is the Best. Was able to stop by at the same day as requested (urgent request). He was very helpful, friendly, and polite and was able to quickly problem solve the situation. He went above and beyond to help solve the issue. Price was very reasonable compared to other electricians. I strongly recommend Altap Electrical! One of the best company I've ever deal with!11/12/18: Called Braham again for another issue (I live in an old house!), and he stopped by same day and fixed the issue really fast! Braham is such an honest guy and very helpful. Not just some guy fixing stuff and taking your money, charging ridiculous price. Altap Electrical is your go to Electrician! Best in South Bay!!!

I recently had some recessed lights installed by the Altap team and the overall experience was great.  I submitted a quote request on Saturday and heard back in a few hours.  Bahram answered some of my questions on Sunday and was able to squeeze me in for a Monday install.  His team came in and did a great job keeping things clean.  They even found time to take care of a few lingering items I had been planning to do myself but kept putting them off.  After a few hours they were done and everything works and looks great.  Definitely won't hesitate to call them again.

I solicited 3 quotes to install a ChargePoint level 2 Ev charger in my detached garage.  Bahram's quote was the least expensive.  He has excellent Yelp ratings, which I relied on to assure myself that he would do an excellent cost effective job.Bahram put my job on his schedule, and came promptly with an assistant.  He put down protective plastic and paper in my house to a avoid making a mess.   The job entailed working in the crawl space, adding a cable to my interior electrical panel, rearranging the circuit breakers, routing the new cable to my garage in a way that would not be visibly obvious, installing a new panel and outlets in my garage, and installing the charger.Bahram did this work quickly, cleanly, and efficiently.  He caulked the holes he had to make in the exterior wall, and patched the plaster he disturbed near my electrical panel.  I touch-up painted the affected wall and the new conduit using left-over exterior paint. The installation works and looks great.  I recommend Altap without reservation. More...

Bahram is so good.Responsiveness: Immediately responded after I requested a quote.  I let it sit for about a week, got back to him, and then he immediately got back to me again.Scheduling: So we've been in our house for over three years and needed to upgrade our outlets to GFCI.  I figured he'd give me some time a week or two out.  Instead, I spoke with Bahram today and he was out here this evening.  He asked about a 5-7 p.m. time slot but I didn't get home until around 6 p.m. so he gladly gave me a 6-8 p.m. time slot.  A couple other five star Yelp electricians told me it'd be 2-4 weeks (or more).Pricing: Literally half the price of the quote I received from another five star Yelp electrician.Courtesy: Shoes off in the house.  Friendly conversation.Knowledge: He changed out the outlet without shutting off the power.  I assume I'd be lying dead on the ground if I tried to do that myself with the power on.  Also gave me some feedback on the wiring of one of the outlets.It's very clear why he's so highly rated on Yelp.

Bahram and his crew really came through for us. We needed a panel upgrade and 240 volt line ran to the house. He took care of everything including: working with PGE and setting up inspections and helping with permits. He explained the process very well and was easy to get in contact with. If you are looking for an electrician he is the one to go with. I am very pleased with the end result. More...

Behram is a great electrician! I wanted to install 40 amp circuit for car charger. He came the same day at 5 PM. Started the work with prep work to collect dust and dry wall hole material. I was super impressed with his knowledge and workmanship. Finished the work in less than 2 hours including helping me install the ChargePoint plug-in charger. I'd highly recommend him. More...

Having received excellent service in the past, I approached Bahram again early this year for a tremendous task:  To help members of our large condo association upgrade their 48-year-old electrical sub-panels. Bahram arranged a generous discount and worked with each of our participating members through their upgrades. Naturally, you might expect there would be at least a few complaints from among the 70-or-so unit owners participating.  Not. A. Single. Complaint!  Quite the opposite. I heard many compliments about Bahram from our members and reports about how professional his service was and easy he was to work with.  So you could sorta' say this review is from not just one, but seventy satisfied customers!

After another electrician put in LED flood lights in my back yard, he told me that the electrical panel was in bad shape and recommended I look into replacing it.  At that point he gave me a quote that seemed on the high side.I went onto Yelp and found another two electricians and asked for quotes to upgrade the electrical panel and to see if they too recommend I replace the panel.I eventually decided on ALTAP Electrical because of the stellar reviews and their price was very competitive.  I emailed Bahram and he sent me a contract to sign and the process was on it's way.  Bahram took care of the permits, PG&E hookup and the city inspector.  I just watched as everything went smoothly.Bahram arrived on the appointed day with two of his employees.  The power was off at 8:30 AM and back on at 2:30 PM.  They needed to get to the crawl space to run the ground wire and to fix a small problem with the sheetrock, both times they came into my house they wore booties over their shoes and put down tarps on the carpets from the front door to the crawl space door.  I was impressed (and happy) because I have wall-to-wall carpets.Great job all around.

Altap Electrical came to my home to install 8 recess lights. Bahram responded quickly to my request and questions and even moved some appointments around to accommodate my schedule. When the team arrived to do the work they arrived on time and completed the job successfully with no mess behind. There were a couple of minor cuts made into my ceiling so that they could weave the wires and they neatly put back the dry wall and plastered it back. The crew was very professional and friendly. I am very happy with the work they did and will be reaching out to them for future work. More...

Both of my outlets in my bathrooms went out. I tried to trouble shoot it myself but could not get them to work. Bahram responded to my yelp message quickly and he was able to come fix the outlets that day. I was so glad that it was a quick fix and it only cost me the price for him to come out. I would recommend Altap to anyone of my friends for similar.    problems. More...

I reached out to Bahram for an install of a NEMA 14-50 50amp (40 amp continuous) for charging my EV cars. He is very detail oriented as he asked me to take pictures of the garage and took the time with me, over many msgs and calls, to figure out the most cost effective place to install the outlet. He was very flexible with the scheduling as well as I couldn't be around for the appointment until after my work schedule. He showed up on time, made a new square cutout in the garage opposite the outside main panel and promptly installed the new recessed outlet with the parts he'd brought. After the installation, I tested it by plugging in a Benz B-class that draws 40amp current and it has worked flawlessly ever since. Just want to say that Bahram is a very knowledgeable, patient and diligent electrician and pretty humorous. I would definitely use him next time for any future electrical work! More...

Bahram is AMAZING.  One of my tenant's old breaker is broken and my usual electrician is out from the flu.  I called out to a few electricians.  Some did not call back.  Some do not deal with multifamily.  Bahram picked up the phone.  He immediately understood what needs to get fixed and gave me a quote on the phone which I am fine with.  As a property manager, I hate coordinating with tenants and tradesmen.  Bahram said: "Give my number to your tenants so the tenants can contact me directly so we can arrange for a time to get this done.  You don't have to get involved as I know your time is valuable."  I was so amazed.  That afternoon, my tenant told me the problem has been fixed.  My tenant's comment about Bahram, "that guy is great." He actually helped me with other items around the property.  He is my FIRST go to guy for all electrical issues from now on.  I know he is going to be very busy with all these great reviews.  He deserves it.

5 stars - We recently contacted Bahram to install recessed lighting for our house. He asked for room dimensions and gave us a reasonable quote over phone. On the day of installation, his team showed up on time(which doesn't happen much with other contractors). They brought all the lights and other stuff needed with them.  They were all excited for the work being done and were able to finish it 2 hours earlier than expected. They even replaced an old fan for no extra cost and suggested work around options for some major remodeling work. I would definitely recommend them for any electrical needs More...

One word - FANTASTIC !I reached out to Bahram for installing recessed lighting in our bedrooms after a friend recommended him. While he doesn't usually work in this area, he agreed to do it because of the referral. We communicated over email and phone about the specifics and I got a quote which was reasonable.Bahram and his team came over at the agreed upon time - he called me about 45 mins in advance to let me know he was on his way. Once here, the team got going immediately -  The rooms were cleared, the carpet / stairway and the bed etc were covered with plastic sheets to avoid getting dirty. By about 4 in the afternoon they were done, having installed 16 lights in all and 4 switches/dimmers. The quality of work is top notch. A few holes had to be poked in the drywall and they diligently put the pieces back in and spackled it. They removed the plastic, vacuumed the carpet etc and left the rooms extremely clean.Now on to the final invoice. I was expecting to pay slightly more than what was quoted originally since Bahram had given me the quote sight unseen just based on my description of the project. He had to make a trip to Home depot during the day to get a different sized housing for the cans since there wasn't enough clearance for the larger sized cans he had brought with him. I was pleasantly surprised that the final invoice was exactly the same as his estimate.They have excellent worksmanship as well as work ethic and I would happily recommend them to anyone. More...

We hired ALTAP to complete a few different scopes of work at our new home that we purchased in December. They installed recessed lighting in the front half of the house, replaced the existing electrical panel, routed all the electrical needed for our kitchen remodel up to code, and installed outlets along the outside of the house. Bahram was our main point of contact and was very communicative and clear throughout the multiple scopes of work involved. He was always available and recommended when his team should come for each phase. His prices were very reasonable and was happy to come back in case there was any corrective work required. He would call in case an issue came up in the field so you had an opportunity to discuss a resolution. Finally he was more than happy coordinating with another vendor we had since when their scopes of work required a bit of overlap and intersection. Would highly recommend! More...

Very glad I went with Altap! I highly recommend Braham, he fixed our circuit problem quickly at reasonable cost. Braham is very experienced, treated us very professionally and was upfront about the cost and work. Believe me, you will not regret working with him. Our home had a dead circuit but circuit breakers checked out all fine. Called Altap on Saturday morning and got appointment same day. Braham arrived on time and meticulously checked out each circuit box until he found the problem. A bad connection was hidden in the back of one of the circuit boxes. Braham had the experience and skill to solve the puzzle. Along the way he fixing shoddy wiring as he found them. I think he showed a lot integrity in what he does and highly recommend him. I highly recommend Braham. More...

Bahram came to my house to install a new 220V outlet in the laundry room.  He came when he said he would and when unable to complete the work on his initial visit he then scheduled a follow up time soon after.  I also solicited a few quotes and he did the work for a reasonable price.  Lastly, he was not only very professional but also very pleasant to work with.  I highly recommend him.

I was mowing the lawn with our electric mower when all of a sudden it stopped working. Went inside and found out 4 of our outlets stopped working. I called ALTAP and spoke with Bahram. Since it wasn't an emergency I scheduled an appointment for a few days later. Fast forward to yesterday, Bahram came to the house and within a few minutes he figured out we had fried one of the breakers. Everything was fixed within 20-30 minutes and Bahram was kind and professional. I highly recommend ALTAP, they are professionals not looking to rip you off. Thank you Bahram More...

He was on time in all his appointments and he took care of the city permit and the inspection.The work was done within the time slot that he scheduled and the amount I paid was exactly what the quote said.He is efficient, friendly, responsive and gets the job done.

I had an outstanding experience with Bahram and Altap Electrical team in the summer of 2015: by far the best experience I have had with any contractors. We needed to have several ceiling fans and recessed lights installed in the house. Not only his rates were reasonable he went way beyond his initial commitment to deliver the job with highest quality and in a timely manner. He and his team were professional and courteous from start to the end. Even afterwards he was kind enough to answer my other electrical questions and provided me with helpful guidance. More...

Bahram did some work for my daughter and it was so well done, she recommended him and Altap Electrical to me. I had recessed lights placed in my living room, my kitchen, and my rec room. I had all my outlets and switches replaced to white in the new design. I had two lights replaced, one ceiling fan and two bath fans replaced. I am absolutely thrilled with all of it! He took one look at some original fluorescent lighting in my kitchen and suggested I consider changing it. I did and it and the rest of my home looks absolutely amazing. They clean up after themselves, they make it all cosmetically appealing, they show up on time and work until the job is done. I am so glad I found them...Can't say enough about how pleased I am!!!

He was not the cheapest quote I got at $170 to troubleshoot but he did respond quickly my phone call and email.  He also set up the appointment quickly and came out within three hours.  He replaced my AFCI circuit breaker with a regular circuit breaker which he said would be more reliable as the old AFCI breaker kept "tripping".  He had the job done in about 20 minutes so he made good money but I have not complaints.  I would use Bahram again.

I had the pleasure of working with Braham for some electrical trouble over the weekend. I called and made an appointment for a Saturday afternoon. Braham came to my home at 11am within the 10-12pm window as scheduled. I let him know that my downstairs bedroom outlets, dining room lights, and kitchen lights were not working. He checked the circuit breaker and found that there was a circuit trip that happened....I swear I had checked that darn switch multiple times and nothing had worked...He must have some magical electric mind thing going on because I felt like a dummy having him come all the way just to flip a switch. But he did not stop there, Braham checked the rooms again, double, triple checking everything. When he did his last check on the switch he heard a weird buzzing noise. He said that was enough to open the circuit breaker and replace the bad breaker with a new one. So he did and I was so happy that he was concerned about my safety rather than just flipping the switch and charging me. The invoice came out to be a very reasonable price. I highly recommend this business for those who need an honest electrician who isn't coming to just take your money. He accepts cash or check. More...

We remodeled our home couple of months ago. ALTAP Electrical installed recessed led lighting and fans in all rooms of our house. They also installed new led light bars in our bath rooms. They have done a fantastic job.  Bahram first came over for an in-house consultation. He gave us useful tips for lighting throughout the house.  He then scheduled the work just a few days later. The installation guys were experts and also very friendly! In couple of days, they completed all the work as promised. Bahram is a wonderful person to work with.  I would definitely recommend them to my friends and colleagues. They really deserve 5 stars. If there are more stars, I would have given them. Impressed.

We used ALTAP to install recessed lighting in our 1937 house, and was happy with their service and clean work. We had a total of 8 lights installed in our living room and kitchen, and the process took an entire day. Bahram was able to schedule an installation within the week, and the guys who came to do the job were timely and responsive. I do recommend the house being empty of people while the work is going on, as they clear much of the furniture and put down rosin paper and plastic sheeting everywhere. It's not really convenient to hang around or get your usual chores around the house done while they are there. The work and wiring was clean, though I do experience a slight 1-second delay when I turn my living room lights on, which is a minor complaint. They used LEDs and the brightest setting is too bright for us, so we usually have it dimmed slightly. The lighting has made a huge difference in our home and we love it. I appreciated Bahram coming by after the job was done to make sure everything was done right. We will definitely use ALTAP in the future for our lighting needs. More...

Bahram was absolutely fantastic! The power for my 2 outlets that sourced my TV, TiVo, cablemodem, router would not reset from the circuit breaker like usual and I couldn't wait until Monday (it was a Saturday afternoon). He fit me in and came by shortly after calling him. He was able to troubleshoot the issue and replaced a few connectors. I am a DIY person and can usually do basic things myself. So, I felt better that this wasn't anything I could have done on my own due to the age of my home and complex wiring. Job well done! Based on this experience, I will likely call again to install lighting in other rooms and will know that it will be done right. More...

Yes. Altap truly deserves five stars. Bahram was very professional, prompt and is very good at communicating with his customer. He also has very good lighting recommendations. I will admit that when he first made some lighting suggestions, I thought he was trying to upsell me. I WAS TOTALLY WRONG! I went with his suggestions, and he was 100% spot on. The house looked great . So, if he makes a recommendation....and you can afford it....go with it!In addition, of all the contractors I worked with during my remodel, Bahram was the best. Not only did he return my calls quickly and professionally, he was the only one that got the job done on time....in fact, he got the job done early. Plus, his customer service is excellent. One of the jobs we had Altap do was install some recessed lighting. About a week or two after the install, one of lights started to slip out about a 1/4" from the ceiling and wasn't seated flush. I just mentioned it to Baharm and he took care of it immediately. I would not hesitate to recommend Altap to anyone. Thanks Bahram! More...

Before I could get my issues solved (outlets missing in a house we just moved in and defective wiring in the pantry) I had to call at least 7 different companies over 3 days. Of course before to reach out to these companies I inquired a lot to ensure I would deal with reliable people. Unfortunately these companies have not called me back or they did to apologize and share other referral because they were full booked. I ended up going on Yelp and found some good reviews about Altap. I gave them a call early in the morning and talked with Bahram about our needs. I was pleasantly surprised as Bahram said he would be able to stop by the same day to have a look. He came on time (he gave us a call to share an update on his schedule to make sure we would not wait for nothing - and we really appreciated his concern) - had a look and shared his quote (orally). He said he would do his best to send his team the same day and that he would call me later. Bahram did call me back few hours later to apologize as his team could not deal with this the same day but he let me know that they could do the work the following day. The following day Bahram called me back to set a time and his team arrived accordingly. They did a really nice job, fixed the wires issues and installed the outlets as planned. The overall team was extremely polite, professional, very responsive, and did not make me wait forever before they could do the job despite the fact that my project was just a very small one. I am glad I found a reliable electrical company for our future needs. I found that Bahram was extremely responsive, trustworthy. Consequently, I highly recommend Bahram and his team if you need any electrical work to be done. More...

On a Sunday, power went out in a few of my rooms, which included our internet and cable (gasp!). I tried to reset the breaker, but it wasn't working. So I called ALTAP and talked to Bahram and he said he could be there in two hours...yay!! He determined it was a broken breaker so he replaced it and was done in a matter of 5-10 minutes. Since he was so quick, I also asked him to help troubleshoot some under-cabinet kitchen lights which he kindly did at no extra charge. I'd definitely call ALTAP again. Five stars! More...

In a world where people will look you straight in the eye and say, "I will do the job tomorrow" and never be seen or heard from again, Bahram is an honest and conscientious electrician who shows up as promised.  His prices are quiet reasonable and he does the job without cutting corners.   We are very pleased with the work to restore electricity and install two new circuit boxes to our backyard water feature.   We would recommend you call Altap first and not waste your time with some other highly rated but undependable electricians.   We will call him again.

We purchased an old single family and hired Altap for a bunch of electrical work before we moved in. I talked to the owner Bahram on the phone and was able to make a free estimate appointment immediately. On the day of our appointment, Bahram was punctual, professional and easy to talk to. He listened to what we wanted to get done and also made some recommendations about what we could do. The thing I was most happy about is that Bahram was able to schedule two electricians to work on my house within a few days and finished the interior work before my house cleaning appointment and our move-in date. We appreciated it a lot. We ended up doing the following things: upgrade the old fuse-based electrical panel with a new panel, ground a few outlets throughout the house with dedicated lines connected to the panel, install six recessed lights for the living room and fix a bunch of other small electrical issues around the house, such as installing motion sensor light, fixing improper wiring, etc. In fact, the other bids we obtained was cheaper. But Bahram was able to come close to the other bids and offered a bunch of small fix-ups for free. Overall, the quality of their work was great. Bahram has been very responsive with emails and texts about our questions and concerns. We had a great experience overall and would highly recommend Altap for electrical projects. More...

We needed to install recessed lighting in a room with 24 ft vaulted ceiling. Few of the companies said that they will have to rent scaffolding which were expensive. Bahram took up the challenge and came up with the idea to install the lights more closer to lower end of the vault at 20ft, than going all the way high. This way he could work with just ladders. He provided excellent service and was very patient in trying out different light lumens at that height as I was not sure what Kelvin scale will work for the house. He had to do multiple iterations to get the right lighting. He is extremely patient and professional. I have never worked with someone who is so patient and is on your side. You can't go wrong with Altap electrical. More...

During a recent heat spell, I came home from work around 6:30 and found the circuit breaker had tripped to our wall-mounted AC unit.  I tried resetting the breaker, but it wouldn't reset.  I unplugged the AC and tried again, but still could not reset it.  In a bit of a panic, as we were having guests that night and the house was at 87 degrees, I searched for an electrician that was still open (using the "Open Now" filter).  I found Altap Electrical on Yelp, called and spoke directly with Bahram. I explained the situation and he said he could be there within an hour.  Because he knew it was the AC, he said he would do whatever he could to get it repaired that night.  He showed up on time and found the problem was a bad circuit breaker.  He was able to replace it in a few minutes and we were able to cool the house before our guests arrived. He did a great job and we were very pleased. More...

I needed additional circuits in my garage.  Bahram showed up on time and asked a lot of questions about my requirements.  He proposed a practical solution and quickly sent me a bid.  The price was competitive and he was able to schedule the work within a few days.  His communication with me (voice, text and e-mail) was excellent.  He personally arrived on time to do the work.The upgrade is exactly what I wanted.  I'm very pleased to have found a contractor who listens to my needs and does good work.  Bahram personifies my ideal of a professional contractor.I will certainly call Altap first the next time I need more electrical work.

Two very pleasant electricians came to my home and did an excellent job of installing a new, three-pronged (grounded) circuit in my bedroom. It is a dedicated outlet for my treadmill, and they had to run wire under the house and up into the attic to get it to the panel, which is on the opposite end of my house. They put down plastic on all the carpets and cleaned up perfectly after they were done. If I have electrical work in the future, I would call them again without hesitation. More...

Altap has a wonderful and knowledgeable team that is professional, shows up on time and completes on time. We are grateful that they worked with PG&E to get our panel updated and took the stress off of us. Highly recommended! We are using them next to rewire our 100 year old home! More...

I am the first time home owner, and don't know much about things like plumbing, electricity, and such. So I'm very careful with every decision I make in those areas as I want quality without overpaying. I needed more light in my new home, so I talked to several electrician contractors to get their suggestions and quotes. Bahram was the first I talked to, and liked him right away. He certainly knows what he is doing. He suggests what is best for the place and not what is more expensive, he is very responsive and cares for his clients. Bahram's guys worked like a well-oiled machine together - fast, professional, clean. I'm very pleased with my new recessed lighting in the bedroom and living room. I also plan lighting improvement for my kitchen later and I'll certainly call Bahram. More...

I am so happy with the results that I had to write a review as soon as I had a min. I found this place through Yelp, among a few other places. I called everyone leaving a message explaining we had open beam ceiling and needed a quote to put a light fixture up. Bahram from Altap was the only one who returned my call in 30 mon or so and came out within an hour to give an estimate! He suggested we do a few recess lights instead of a light fixture. I wasn't sure but I decided to trust his judgement. He was able to come 2 days later to do the job and it took his crew half a day to finish. They were so nice and cleaned up the place after they left.  The best part, my husband and I LOVE the recess lights. They look great and now we can enjoy a well-lit living room:-))) More...

As a first time home owner, it was very hard to find the right electrician. We interviewed alot of different candidates. I am so glad we found Braham. He is so patient with all of our questions and always returned all of our calls right away. His work is great and he is very time efficient. He rewired our whole house, changed our amp from 100 to 200, put in recessed lights, ceiling fans, and bathroom fans. Braham is great! He really know what he is doing. More...

We wanted to get LED recessed lighting for our living room, family room and kitchen and also have some exhaust fans installed in our bathrooms. After getting quotes from several electricians we decided to go with Bahram because his was the most reasonable and accurate and also because of all the good reviews on yelp. Bahram came across as an honest gentleman. He gave us very good advice on the placement of lights, the quietest exhaust fans, etc. And there was no up-sell or pressure. He is very prompt in answering emails, text or calls. We only had to pay after the whole job was done.His crew of 2 people got the job done quietly and efficiently, They laid plastic on the floor and furniture to protect from the mess. They also moved some of the furniture out of the way while installing the lights. They cleaned up the place after they were done and everything was put back neatly. They had to do some small drywall cutting which they patched up quite well. We are very pleased with our new lighting and fans and would highly recommend Altap Electrical. Will definitely be using them for our future electrical needs. More...

I've been wanting to get some recessed lighting installed in the living room for quite some time.  I had some time off from work and decided it was time to take the plunge and get a quote.  I did my normal trolling on Yelp to find an appropriate contractor that I could contact to do the job and stumbled upon Altap Electrical.  I went to their website left them a short message with my contact information.  Bahram called the next day and offered to stop by that afternoon to provide a quote. Bahram arrived and quoted a reasonable flat cost per light which included materials and installation costs which was beyond reasonable.  We parted ways and he said that he would email me with a quote and when he and his team might be available to come back out.  Within 30 minutes of him leaving, he called me back saying that he had an opening available the next morning due to a cancellation from a different client.  I jumped on the opportunity and agreed for them to come out the next morning. At 8:30, bright and early the next morning, Bahram's crew came out and installed 10 LED recessed lights.  Before starting, they put pink protective paper down on the wood floors, and put up plastic on all the impacted areas to ensure that none of the insulation got all over the place.  It was like a small army descended upon our house!  He had 4 people doing their magic and within 2 hours they were done!   They were careful to clean-up the majority of the mess, and were a pleasure to deal with.  I'm very pleased with Bahram and his team's work and looking forward to installing some additional outdoor lighting in the future.

Bahram agreed to come to our home on a Monday evening to do a free quote when we decided to finally put in some recessed lighting. Not only did he work around our buys work schedule, but he was knowledgeable, and offered what we thought was a very fair price. He had a cancellation the next day and within two days of our initial consult we had a crew of 3 guys come and install lighting in our kitchen, living, and dining room. We are very happy with the results. There were some problems with one of the new dimmer switches and Bahram came himself the next day to install a new switch and fix the problem. After 8 months of cooking by the light of the stove top we can now see. Amazing! More...

Barahm was very helpful in my determining what I needed to bring in more light over my computer desk. He installed an overhead LED light and switch and then came back and installed a brighter/larger light when I called him and told him that I still needed more light. He also did some small jobs. I think his knowledge and experience are excellent. Also, he quickly responded and performed the work soon after I talked to him. More...

Bahram called me immediately upon filing my work request, and was able to come this afternoon to address our issues. He arrived promptly, had his equipment with him, and got to work right away once I outlined our issues. He was professional, and kind, and figured out how to address "older house" issues quickly/competently. He clearly knows what he is doing. Since it took him more time than he anticipated in our original conversation (by less than 30min, I should point out), he offered to lower the originally quoted price. I will call Bahram if I have an electrical concern in the future. More...

Barham was very quick in returning the call and because of the refrigeratorbeing out, he said he would come by in 1.5 hrs on his way back from another visit. He showed up around 1hr 20min and got it all fixed and gave us helpful suggestions to conserve. I would definitely call Barham again for any electrical issues. More...

28 May 2014

I am not a type of person who often leaves reviews/comments on Yelp. I left only a few reviews ONLY when I had complaints, but it's different this time. I am leaving a review with 5 stars. I contacted approx. 10 contractors/electricians who install lights since my new living room light with a fan fixture was not bright enough. After a few consults, our conclusion came to recessed LED lights. I searched lighting installation companies on Yelp, contacted more than 10 companies that have higher than 4 star rating, and got quotes from them. Some of them including Bahram made a visit to my house for a free estimate, and others gave me quotes by email. ($$ per one recessed light and dimmer switch). There are two main reasons I went for  Bahram. 1. Quality of the work was the first concern since we just moved into our new house. He sounded very promising when he told my wife about the work. I was at work, so my wife dealt with Bahram when he visited. According to my wife, Bahram seemed to know exactly what we wanted and what he would do. Bahram said we don't need to move any furniture/stuff in the living room and promised to cover all and clean after work. (See photos) In addition, my home has a crawl space above the living room, but the work still required cutting a small hole on drywall. Bahram's team cut the drywall, patched it, and painted it at no cost after installing the recessed lights. The cutting/patching is not even very visible and was perfectly done by his team. All the companies I got quotes from said they would NOT do the patch and paint job after installing the lights. Instead, they told me to hire another drywall contractor to finish the patch and paint work after they install. That would cost me extra $$, and who knows how badly they would ruin the drywall when they install the lights? I did not want to hire another contractor for some one else has done. 2. Cost was a second concern. Everyone should get all the quotes from all available contractors/electricians, but I bet Bahram would give the best deal. I don't think it would be appropriate to post exact amount here... Like I said above, I got quotes from more than 10 places, and the quote from Bahram was the cheapest. (much cheaper). And, my wife and I are happier with the quality of work at this price. No doubt I would call Bahram for future projects and recommend him to anyone. More...

Got my first home and I wanted to install recessed lights and add a few outlets. I was worried because the bedrooms had a vaulted/slanted ceiling. Bahram said no problem and also suggested to add recessed lights in the kitchen (was fluorescent lights). I was worried about cost, but he kept it to a minimum. I was also worried that I would have to do a lot of patch up work since the place was newly painted.His guys finished everything in 2 days (7 lights in living room, 4 lights in kitchen, 5 lights in 2 bedrooms each, plus some other outlets).  I was amazed because the lights in the bedrooms were nicely placed and needed NO patchwork. Only area that really needed patchwork was the kitchen but that was because the fluorescent lights were replaced.His suggestions were great and I love the lights!  His price was the most reasonable (out of 3 contractors I asked, and the others were not willing to do recessed lights on the slanted ceiling).Bahram ALWAYS answers his phone and he is so nice and professional. He answers all emails late at night...best to get him on the phone.Now I'm thinking to get more light (should have changed the hallway lights)...Bahram, I'll come back to you when I'm ready! More...

I would highly recommend ALTAP Electric.  We had them do extensive work on our new home this month.  This included adding recessed lighting to two rooms, grounding ungrounded wiring in much of the house, updating the box from 100amp to 200amp, adding a dryer outlet with wiring and removal of old knob and tube wiring throughout the house.  Bahram, the owner, is very easy to work with and, as other reviewers have noted, extremely honest, reasonable and friendly.  His team is good to work with as well.  If you want an electrician who is  very reasonably priced, provides quality work and will always be upfront and honest with you about your electrical needs, Bahram and his team are your guys.  I can not stress enough how honest Bahram is.  He will never sell you anything you don't need and will work with you to save money at every turn.  He is also very good about working with the city for any needed permits and will personally make sure there are zero problems before he is done with the job.  Doing extensive work on a new house was stressful, but Bahram made sure the process was as easy as possible.  We were certainly pleased with the work done.I can't recommend him enough.  Don't waste your money elsewhere.

I'm a very nit-picking guy. To give a review of 5 stars would be difficult from me. But if there's a SIX-star rating in YELP. Bahram, the owner, is definitely the one and I don't even need to have a second thought about it.For the record, I hired him to rewire the whole house, install recessed lights everywhere, and upgrade the electrical panel from 100amp to 200 amps. As you can see, it's probably everything you can image about electrician.Why I'm so happy?#1: Honest He will never sell something you don't need. Even you don't need it right away but better to have in the future. He will talk you out of it. He try hard in saving your money unless it's necessary. He is not selling you ANYTHING you don't need.#2: Affordability (High C/P)His quote is often 30-40% lower than other quote. But the quality is really good. You are paying for a Toyota and you got a Lexus. No complaint at all. To give an example, upgrade a 100amp to 200amp panel can easily top 3000 from many electrician. Try to call him and you can save a huge. #3: SatisfactionI just called him after 6pm on Friday. He picked up the phone without any hesitation. He is always there. Text, Email, Phone. He always visit my house per my request to give more consultation, and his guy make sure the house is clean, neat, and safe. If there is a need for permit, he takes care of you without any service charge.The best out of the best, I probably owe him close to few thousands for all the jobs he have completed. He did not charge me for any downpayment. I keep asking him, how much do I owe you? Should I pay jobs that have been done? Guess what. He said not necessary. I can pay when EVERYTHING is complete and I'm happy. He always give you a quote in advance but he trusts his clients. I did not even sign any document (contract) and he just sent his workers to do the job. I can only tell the quality of his work by its appearance. I am not an electrician so I can't vouch for the quality of his work. (Come on, if someone can judge this, he is an electrician and why the hell you need hire another?) But I can tell no difference between his work and other work done in my friend's house. But I save thousands of money and always, the most important, peace of my mind. (No rip-off)By the way, he usually "does NOT work" with a general contractor. He runs business with the home owner directly to save your pocket. Well, you know the catch... the more middle man, the more overheads involved. I'm glad that YELP help me find him. He is definitely the best out of the best. More...

Bahram from Altap is the rare contractor who answers his phone most of the time or calls back really fast. I found him from yelp and was impressed by the reviews. The work was even more impressive. His team completed their job fast, got along with the other contractors who were working on other stuff at the same time. So from not having lights in a house we were moving into, to knowing how much it would cost, and having all the lights up and running within a short duration of 3 days was nothing short of amazing.

EXCELLENT!!!  We found Altap on Yelp and couldn't be happier.  I called mid week for a relatively quick two hour job, they were able to accommodate my request to come out that same Friday.  I asked them to change out a bathroom fan and two light switches, they did so very quickly and reasonably priced.  The best part  When I walked by the bathroom I looked in and he had the whole area taped off with plastic so when he left there was absolutely NO residue, dust, anything you'd expect to see after this kind of job.  Very happy customer!

It was just after break and my lights around the house had been having some issues.  Bahram was able to come out the same day even asking me how much time I'd need to get home so he could call me and let me know when he was going to head over.After working with him to figure out exactly what was wrong he found the place where my wires burned out and fixed them right up.  Unfortunately it was on a light fixture that was a b*tch to put back on.  He didn't leave me hanging and spent the time to put the fixture back after fixing the electrical problem.  He charged what was an extremely fair price and headed out apologizing that normally he would do a better job cleaning the work area (there was some fried pieces of wire that fell on the floor), but that his other guys were waiting on him at another job (they called him twice).So what did we learn?- He values my time because he offered to call me when he was heading over rather than having me wait for him at home.- He stayed to finish the job before taking off and actually fixed it even though he had a bigger job to go to.- He made the effort to come the same day I called- He was extremely fair about pricing for his services- He was a really nice guy- You should write him a check (he doesn't take CCs that I saw) More...

We were in desperate need of lighting in our new home so, I contacted Bahram. His team installed recessed lighting in my parents home, and they were happy with the results so I took their recommendation. Bahram answered the first time I called, we scheduled a consultation, and they were installing 27 recessed lights in our home the following week. It only took 1.5 days for installation, and they did it all while we were at work. The most impressive thing is they moved the furniture out of the way and back where it was, then they cleaned/vacuumed the floors when they were done. I really couldn't even tell work was done, aside from the beautiful new lights we had. The best thing about ALTAP is that their rates are very competitive, my dad was quoted three times as much from another electrician. For the amount of work they do to install these lights, it is definitely a great deal. Our experience with ALTAP was pleasant, painless, and smooth. I highly recommend these guys! More...

I must add more to all these praises for Bahram!  He is so honest and patient with the work. Their motto is if they can't fix it they won't charge you which is pretty cool. We didn't have electricity downstairs in certain parts of the house for over 2 years and couldn't figure out where the problem was. It took a while and by the end of the first visit he couldn't figure it out so he stood by the motto. It took a second visit when he had A bright idea and found the problem and lo and behold we have light! Very fair pricing,  we were not dissappointed =] More...

Very impressed.  We had a portable heater that has been tripping breakers if a computer printer is also in use; usually we just reset the breakers.  A few days ago the portable heater power went out again, but this time the breaker DIDN'T get tripped, so we have a couple rooms having no electricity.  Called Altap today early afternoon and Bahram was able to squeeze in my appointment into his schedule to come by in the evening.  After he arrived, I followed his troubleshooting process and learned that he treats this kind of diagnosis work with high priority, and it makes sense, since the root cause could be some very serious issues with huge safety and $ impact!  Very impressed with his professionalism.His rate is also very reasonable, lowered than three other companies I checked.  it's rare to have high quality professional work comes with most competitive rates.Now we have electricity and feel very relieved that we have a trustworthy electrical company to work with when future problems comes up.  Thanks Bahram.

The problem solvedafter 1 hour. While he was trouble shoot the problem, he also explained for us what he tried to do, it was a great pleasure talking to him. His price is fair, he is the electric  contractor I will call next time if I have electric problem. More...

We had a breaker issue and our garage had no power in which PG&E advised we should get an electrician to take a look at it. I initially called Altap before I received quotes from 3 other electricians and none of them could beat his price. Called Altap back and spoke with Bahram who was able to come by the same day. He did some troubleshooting and found exactly where the problem was. Although my yard and home was a bit difficult to maneuver thru, he was very patient through out the entire process and was able to get everything fixed in a timely manner. Overall, Bahram did an outstanding job and provided me with honest, straight to the point service. I would highly recommend him to anyone in need of electrical services and would definitely go back to him if I ever need anything else done in my home. More...

The Yelp reviews are true. I highly recommend Bahram and his team. They did the electrical for my new hot tub. He always answers his phone and is on time. It was done quickly and for a great price. He even troubleshooted a problem with my pool pump wiring. I will be using Altap for all my electrician needs.  Call them and you won't be disappointed. More...

I don't usually go online to find someone to hire for a project. I depend on my friends' referrals. But this time I decided to go online. I'm so glad I did. Bahram was the first one to call. He was not high pressure at all. When I hired him, he went out of his way to schedule a time that worked more for me than for him. He came after work. What a blessing. I would highly recommend Bahram anytime. In fact, I believe I've found someone I will hire for my next project or when I need repairs or in an emergency. You can count on him to be honest and fair.

I bought an old 1952 home in a state of disrepair.  ALTAP did a service panel upgrade, rewired my entire house to be up to code, and installed sconces, fans and new dimmer switches and outlets.  Also, Bahram gave me a competitive price for installing ~37 new recessed LED lights.  Since my home was undergoing an extensive remodel, the process took months (not Bahram's fault) but Bahram was very patient with me.  Bahram took care of the permits and when I lost the paperwork due to the move he went to the City and got new copies for me.  When the final City electrical inspection took place, Bahram showed up early and made sure everything went smoothly.  He went out of his way to comply with some last-minute requests the inspector made and saved the day.  Later, there was a problem caused by the City's requirements, and Bahram knew the problem and resolved it immediately.Bahram is courteous, responsive, and always willing to help.  Thank you, Bahram!I give an A+ to ALTAP and Bahram!

These guys are the real pros! I just moved into a new house and needed to get some items completed per my home inspection report. These guys seemed expensive due to the many great yelp reviews. But I called Altap anyways to speak to someone about my circuit panel and get expert advice. To my surprise, their price was the best I found. Long story short, I hired them to do all my electrical needs because they have the best prices and I felt confident they were professionals just by speaking to Bahram. I explained to Bahram all my concerns and requests. Then they came and they conquered. The results are fantastic and I'm a happy man. Bahram and his team did a stellar job and I'm every bit satisfied with their work. More...

I found Altap Electrical after searching for an electrician on yelp, because my ceiling fan and light stopped working. Since they had good reviews and are open on the weekends, I decided to call and make an appt. Bahram offered to come that same day, which was a Friday, although I wasnt available on a weekday.  It was Labor Day weekend coming up, and he offered to come over on Labor Day even though  they were supposed to be closed.  When he came over, he found the problem immediately, and he fixed it within minutes. He only charged me for the labor which was very reasonable. I really recommend Bahram. He is a very nice and honest person.  He even suggested some other future remodeling recess lighting which would help the lighting in my livingroom and may even be cheaper in electricity.  I definitely recommend Altap Electrical and will be contacting Bahram in the future for any electrical updates to my place and/or problems that might occur again.

Bahram and Chris are fantastic. They are polite, reliable, helpful.. and were able to totally rewire our newly-bought Willow Glen home. We had outlets moved, put in previously non-existent lights; (we had about 3 dozen LEDs installed, possibly more) the whole house was oddly sectioned, so they fixed that as well and installed our microwave and oven.I struggle to say how many times we've had them over, definitely more than 5, and there's still more work to be done, Altap are now our 'go to guys' for electrical issues!

I called several electricians to do a full install of a ceiling fan (running wires, connecting to switch, etc.) and to rewire an existing fan. Bahram not only gave me the best price, but was able to come just a few days later.  He and his team came in and were done in just a few hours.  We did have one remote receiver that fried the afternoon after they left (manufacturer fault all the way!), but Bahram came by the next day and fixed it for the price of a new remote.Very professional and I would have them come back for more work if needed More...

I was so lucky to have Bahram come over and install my Tesla 240 plug. This is the man to hire (and his team must be as good) for any job. He is perfectionist, philosopher and a great engineer. After he installed the 240 plug with the proper circuit breaker and cleaned everything, he realized I have a loose 110 plug, without me asking him, he went ahead and fixed it, no extra charge!!!I highly recommend Bahram and his team, it is very rare to find passionate people doing great job, Bahram is one of them.I will try to find anything in my house that needs his work!

This man knows his lighting and knows how to create an ambiance. Of course he is ever respectful if you do not like his suggestions and wanted to go with your own choices. We will him and again and again for our our electrical issues and will highly recommend him to our family and friends. Very easy to work with and his prices are reasonable. More...

Turned out, Bahram went to our house an hour after I made the call and the problem was solved half an hour later. We are really satisfied with his service and politeness, a rare quality you can find these days. He also gave me quotes for recessed lightnings on my kitchen. He advised to us what's needed to be done and what's not. Thank you for coming during emergency times (apparently the short circuit could cause a fire if not treated immediately), would definitely recommend this company to our friends and relatives.

Altap Electrical upgraded our electric panel and we were very pleased with the result of the work. The price was competitive and they were able to do the work as we asked (replace the panel in place of the old one instead of moving it to another wall as some other contractor suggested they would do). They were able to even do some extra work to improve some existing fixture without additional charge. Mr. Bahram was very professional and a very kind person. He spent extra time to test the work and to respond to our questions and concerns. Would hire again and would recommend to anyone. Thanks a lot and keep up the good work! More...

Excellent contractor, knows exactly what to do, very reliable! A home inspector pointed out that our circuit breaker box had been wired up wrong -- it was clear that the neutrals and the grounds were mixed up, plus it just looked unprofessionally done. I called Altap Electrical out, they inspected it and agreed with what our inspector had said, but told us more about it: that there were additional risks with how it was installed, and that rewiring it is an urgent safety concern. They rewired our entire circuit breaker panel, installing a new higher quality panel and finished it right. Their cost estimate and time were both correct. More...
