Unknown hazard in your home?

While upgrading breaker panels in your home isn't exciting, it is necessary to replace poor quality breaker panels, such as those made by Federal Pacific, Zinsco, and Sylvania. 

Poor quality breaker panels run the risk of fire and other electrical hazards, so call Bentley Electric for an estimate on a panel change-out.

Jay Bentley

Company History

by Jay Bentley

Bentley Electric was established in 1950 by my Dad, Vernon Bentley.  While in high school in Corvallis Oregon, I started helping out with the family business to make extra money. Working as an electrician’s helper, I began to see the “trades” were a good way to make a living, but was not so sure about doing the same work as my Dad.

Maybe HVAC?

Wanting something different, I proceeded to get my associated degree in HVAC. Well, it turned out heating and cooling work was not for me.


I entered the electrical apprenticeship program, and in 1984, bought Bentley Electric from my father.  I married in 1980 and now have four children, l daughter and 3 sons.

Jon G.Forest Grove, OR

“Great job! Very professional and friendly. I would gladly have Jay and his crew do work for me again. Too bad all contractors don't do business like Bentley Electrical.”

Robert S.Hillsboro, OR

“Jay is great. We met Jay when we had an emergency situation and he made time to come out and fix the problem when no one else would. Since then he has dealt with several issues that we have had and we have always found him to be friendly, prompt and reasonably priced.”
