Valarie Hall ★★★★★ Thank you TopTech for your quick response to my call for a water leak under the kitchen sink. Dillon Ashton was very knowledgeable and completed the repair at a quality standard. He cleaned around the repair and the workspace (cabinet). There was no pressure or manipulation. Dillon provided ALL of the (options) information needed so we could make the best decision. Thank you Dillon and the TopTech family! Would’ve have added a video, but the only option is for photos. Before and after photos.Alexis Overholser ★★★★★ Highly Recommend! Caleb was at our house only a few hours after we called. He was very personable and professional! We will be using their services again.James Lacey ★★★★★ I had an arc-fault breaker in my home office that would trip as soon as I turned on anything in that room. I'm a handy person, and I did some basic troubleshooting myself, and I knew it wasn't the breaker. All indications were it was some kind of neutral-to-ground fault, which is notoriously difficult to find. So, rather than punish me with days of searching for the problem and countless trips to one of the big-box stores, I called TopTech and was not disappointed. They were on time, and the electrician was top-notch. Clean, courteous, experienced, and knowledgeable, he had the root cause found in about an hour. I'm delighted with TopTech and highly recommend them, and I will use them again.valrie ridgeway ★★★★★ Dillon Ashton with Top Tech plumbing fixed my problem fast! He did a thorough inspection of my home and notified me of any concerns. He was very polite and courteous. I would definitely recommend Top Tech.Travis Malone ★★★★★ Caleb was great!

I would recommend to anyone. 🙂 Thanks Tyler for getting my plumbing taken care of!Just had the best experience with TopTech. Found this company via Thumbtack. Very quick to respond and easy to set up the appt. I loved that I received a text ahead of time about my techs arrival. Caleb arrived super friendly and smiling. We had excellent conversation, while he worked on my outlets. I would absolutely recommend them to anyone! Thanks Caleb & Team!Isaac ★★★★★ Great job by Alex, informative and very helpful next electrical project will definitely ask for himDinah Kirkpatrick ★★★★★ Dillon was great. Appreciate his help very much!!Will Taylor ★★★★★ Caleb did a great job at our home. He helped us understand what was going on with our flickering lights and presented us with a few options. Easily the best interaction we’ve had with an electrician.Mr. “Jose” Benz ★★★★★ Very professional. Have a detailed breakdown of what is going on. Gave a very good explanation of the process of getting the results I needed. Great Job Tyler thank you!Kinsey Edge ★★★★★ Caleb Mayes from Top Tech did an amazing job for my electrical needs. He was extremely professional, efficient, & explained everything thoroughly. I highly recommend Top Tech Electric and will be utilizing their services in the future.Becky Forshage ★★★★★ Rey and TopTech were amazing! On time, quick, professional! Rey took the time to explain my options, and I never felt rushed to make a decision. I know who I will call next time I need electrical work!Grayson Tucker ★★★★★ Caleb was on time, very knowledgeable, gave extra advice about some other issues in my home and completed everything in a timely manner. I would absolutely recommend anyone booking Caleb.Alayne Torretta ★★★★★ Quick and professional. Came when they said and it cost what they quoted. Definitely recommendDraper Walkery ★★★★★ Tyler is the man for the job! Thx brother!HJ Rose ★★★★★ Outstanding and professional service done in a timely manner on very short notice.

Answered any and all questions we had for them. Made sure we knew what they were doing every step of the way . Cleaned up when they were finished. It was all day job and they worked the entire time they were here Definitely someone we would recommend and use again in the future.Ashley Ramirez ★★★★★ I had one of their plumbers and one of their electricians come out. PLUMBING: Upgraded my old outdoor water faucet that was leaking and shooting water out everywhere whenever the garden hose was attached. He was very nice and detailed and made sure that I didn’t have any other plumbing issues that needed to be addressed before leaving. I will absolutely continue to use this company for any/all future plumbing/electrical needs. Photos of the old faucet versus the new one 🙂 ELECTRICAL: Rey is “the king” for sure! What I thought would be a simple replacement of two nonworking electrical outlets turned out to be extensive troubleshooting on his end due to what sounds like some “not up to par“ previous electrical work on my home. Turns out it was a GFCI outlet that had actually had some burning on the inside wiring and a couple of wires connected the way they shouldn’t have been. He was beyond determined to troubleshoot and figure out the problem and fix the problem and in the end that is exactly what he did along with explaining everything in detail in “non-electrical person” terms the entire time! I will absolutely continue to use this company for any/all future plumbing/electrical needs. Photos of some of the old outlets versus the new ones 🙂Richard Bienvenu ★★★★☆ Caleb was fantastic! Knowledgeable, well spoken, cordial and thorough! While the price itself was a decent bit higher than many of the other licensed competitor offers I'd received, I decided to go ahead and run with the install since they were here - the no pressure attitude and 'bedside manner' won them the business rather than me waiting another day and getting someone else. If you are going to go with this company, know that when they arrive, you'll very possibly be quoted higher than expected if you shopped around - but if you are getting Caleb the price is a bit easier to swallow and you'll not be let down on the quality of service and presentation.Lucky Randolph ★★★★★ Service was great. Clean up was great. Only two negative comments that one was not their fault and the second is just a company policy that i understand. 1) Took a while to get the service done (storms in the area made demand for service above their ‘ability to keep up - not their fault.) 2) it was very expensive. (They told me the cost beforehand and i agreed to it. Also to get quality people you have to pay more. The quality of the technicians were top shelf. The communications with the company were great as well. Sent photos of technicians before so you had a safety check. Really loved that.Susan Harkins ★★★★★ Yay! I have light in my bathroom!!! Caleb was super nice, on time, thorough and did an amazing job. Top tech is my “go to” for electrician work!Stacy Sorrells ★★★★★ I had TopTech out today. Tyler was my technician and he was fantastic. He cleared a clogged line and found a crack in the pipe. I was so grateful who’s hard work and professionalism. I will be using TopTech for my plumbing issues from now on.Pamela Holt ★★★★★ Tyler was very helpful and knowledgeable. He also arrived on time and was efficient in getting the work done.Jessalynn Medairy ★★★★★ Marco was great! He found our electrical problems, addressed our concerns and fixed the issues on the spot. He left the place vacuumed and tidy!Barbara Greyson ★★★★★ Great customer service from my first phone call with Michelle. Quick scheduling and clean, professional, transparent quotes and service from Rey and Hector.

Caleb came out, assessed the problem and quickly scheduled the electrical work to be done. He answered my questions and I felt assured in the work to be done, as well as with the fair cost.On the day of the scheduled work, Caleb showed up, as well as Hector and Ciri. Hector and Ciri got to work and it was done sooner than I expected - even with bad weather on the horizon. They were prepared. All three were professional, courteous and respectful of my home. Hector did the final run through, went over the electrical work that was done and answered my questions. This is my first experience with Top Tech and I am very impressed and pleased with their work. I highly recommend them. Top Tech is Top Notch.Isaac Park ★★★★★ Dylan was my technician to fix my faucet in backyard. He arrived just in time with his professional look, and that made me trust him. He explained what he's gonna do in detail, and finished the job so fast and the result was also perfect. I do recommend him.Johnny V ★★★★★ TopTech came out the day after I called with a GFCI issue.

I needed electrical work done - nothing too complicated, but I wanted it to be professionally done. I called and got a same-day appointment. My Technician was Rey Vargas.

He didn't try any unnecessary upsell- which was nice. He did what I wanted, and did it well and quickly. I definitely recommend Top Tech.Katie Lane ★★★★★ My husband and I have been fighting the plumbing in our house since we bought it in 2020. On our third round of everyone's favorite game show, "Why is there water coming out of our garage?", I called the first number to show up on Google, which happened to be TopTech Electric. I'm very happy I did, the customer service rep on the phone was very sympathetic and quick to get us scheduled for service the next day. Our technician Tyler was very friendly and knowledgeable. We all feared it was a slab leak until the installer Eric came out to perform diagnostics on the issue. Thankfully our issue ended up being an unused pipe that he was able to add a shut-off valve to and that fixed our problem. The work was done the same day as they arrived, and we were left with a fully functional system.David Hartenbower ★★★★★ Marco was great to deal with and did everything that was expected.Daniel Ocean ★★★★★ Alex, Noah, and Tyler were all fantastically knowledgeable, punctual, exceedingly communicative, fast and provided friendly service.

He was polite and explained everything as many times as needed. He was upfront about pricing and helped us save a lot of money! We definitely recommend!Update: We reached out to TopTech for assistance with a leaking water heater (after the electrical situation previously mentioned). We are VIP customers so Dillon came the same day and quickly. Dillon was thorough, patient and so polite. He explained what needed to be done, showed us pricing options and took care of our water heater. I am so very satisfied with TopTech so far. I hope they continue to offer this level of service.Kim Devlin-Allen ★★★★★ Great work! Much better pricing than Milestone.Onil Diaz ★★★★★ Top Tech was top notch from start to finish. Caleb and the team are true experts of their craft. I’ll be using them from here on out for electrical and plumbing needs.

He showed up early, communicated clearly and honestly, and was patient in advising how best to solve the problem. And best of all, he fixed the problem.

FAQs on Lighting Installation

The difficulty of installing light fixtures can vary widely based on several factors:

  • Experience: For someone with electrical experience and a good understanding of wiring principles, installing light fixtures can be relatively straightforward. However, for beginners, it may be more challenging.
  • Fixture Type: The complexity of the light fixture matters. A simple ceiling-mounted light with basic wiring is easier to install than a multi-bulb chandelier with intricate components.
  • Wiring: If there is existing wiring in the location where you want to install the fixture, it’s generally easier. Installing a fixture in a location with no existing wiring can be more complex, involving running new wires.
  • Ceiling Height: The height of the ceiling can also impact difficulty. Installing a fixture on a low ceiling is generally easier than working on high ceilings or vaulted ceilings.
  • Tools: Having the right tools and equipment is crucial. If you lack the necessary tools, it can make the installation process more challenging.
  • Electrical Code Compliance: Ensuring that the installation complies with local electrical codes is essential for safety and legality. If you’re not familiar with the codes, it can be challenging to navigate.

Installing light fixtures can range from easy to moderately challenging, depending on your experience, the type of fixture, the wiring situation, and other factors. If you’re unsure or uncomfortable with electrical work, it’s always advisable to seek the assistance of a qualified electrician to ensure a safe and proper installation. Safety should be the top priority when working with electrical components.

Yes, you can install a ceiling light without existing wiring, but it involves a more complex process that typically requires the following steps:

  • Assessment: Determine the location for the ceiling light and ensure it’s feasible to run new wiring to that spot. Consider factors like access to attic or crawl spaces, the distance to the nearest power source, and any obstacles in the path.
  • Turn Off Power: Always turn off the power supply to the area where you’ll be working to ensure safety.
  • Run New Wiring: You’ll need to run new electrical cables (usually Romex) from the nearest power source, like an existing outlet or switch. This may involve drilling holes through studs or joists and fishing the wire through.
  • Install Electrical Boxes: Secure electrical boxes at the fixture location and any switch locations. Ensure they are properly supported.
  • Wire Connections: Make the necessary wire connections, including connecting the new wiring to the power source and installing a switch, if needed.
  • Install the Fixture: Attach the ceiling light fixture to the electrical box, following the manufacturer’s instructions.
  • Finishing: Close up any holes made during the installation and mount a cover plate or canopy to conceal the wiring and connections.
  • Testing: Turn the power back on and test the light to ensure it functions correctly.

Installing a ceiling light without existing wiring is possible, but it’s a job best suited for experienced DIYers or professional electricians. Mistakes can lead to safety hazards or code violations, so it’s crucial to follow electrical codes and safety guidelines throughout the process. If you’re uncertain or uncomfortable with this level of electrical work, it’s advisable to consult a licensed electrician for a safe and compliant installation.

Yes, landscape lighting wire should typically be buried for several important reasons:

  • Protection: Burying the wire protects it from exposure to the elements, including sunlight, moisture, and physical damage. Exposed wires are more prone to degradation, which can lead to safety hazards and system malfunctions.
  • Aesthetics: Buried wires are hidden from view, maintaining the visual appeal of your landscape lighting. Above-ground wires can be unsightly and disrupt the overall design.
  • Safety: Keeping wires buried reduces the risk of tripping hazards and accidental damage caused by people or landscaping equipment.
  • Durability: Buried wires are less likely to be damaged by lawnmowers, trimmers, or other outdoor equipment, ensuring the longevity of your lighting system.
  • Compliance: Many local electrical codes and regulations require low-voltage landscape lighting wires to be buried to meet safety standards.

When burying landscape lighting wire, it’s essential to follow these guidelines:

  • Use direct-burial or underground-rated wire specifically designed for outdoor use.
  • Bury the wire at least 6 to 12 inches underground, depending on local code requirements.
  • Use a PVC conduit or protective tubing for added protection in areas where the wire may be vulnerable to damage.
  • Proper installation of buried landscape lighting wire not only ensures safety and compliance but also enhances the aesthetics and longevity of your outdoor lighting system. If you have any doubts or concerns, it’s advisable to consult a qualified electrician or landscaper with experience in outdoor electrical installations.

The easiest type of landscape lighting to install is low-voltage landscape lighting. Here’s why:

  • Low Voltage: Low-voltage landscape lighting operates at 12 volts, which is much safer and simpler to work with than standard household voltage (120 volts). You don’t typically need a licensed electrician to install low-voltage systems, reducing installation costs.
  • DIY-Friendly: Low-voltage landscape lighting kits are readily available at home improvement stores and come with easy-to-follow instructions. They’re designed for homeowners to install without advanced electrical expertise.
  • Plug-and-Play: Many low-voltage fixtures use plug-and-play connectors, making it as simple as connecting components like lights, cables, and transformers. No complex wiring or electrical junction boxes are typically required.
  • Versatility: Low-voltage systems offer a wide range of fixture types, including path lights, spotlights, and deck lights, allowing you to customize your outdoor lighting design.
  • Energy Efficiency: They’re energy-efficient, reducing your electricity costs over time compared to high-voltage systems.
  • Expandability: You can easily expand your low-voltage system by adding more fixtures or changing the layout as your landscaping needs evolve.

While low-voltage landscape lighting is the easiest to install, it still requires careful planning and attention to safety. Make sure to follow manufacturer instructions, use outdoor-rated components, and be aware of local building codes and regulations. If you’re uncertain or have complex lighting needs, consider consulting a professional landscape lighting installer for guidance and assistance.
