About the Owner

Armand Dahan, owner of the House of Brakes has loved cars all of his life — driving them, working on them and learning how to fix them. After spending 3 years working on fighter jets in the Air Force,  he decided to open his own shop. Armand wanted to create an environment where only the best, most well-trained technicians are employed and customer service is king.


Wanting to finally shoot down the old stereotype that car repair shops are dishonest, Armand created the House of Brakes in 1984 and due to diligence, respect and top-notch know-how, it quickly blossomed into a full-service shop offering Bay Area residents the very best in automotive repair and maintenance.


House of Brakes's staff consists of trained expert technicians, able to competently work on older cars as well as new models. With vehicles becoming increasingly technological, you need to be able to trust that your repair shop doesn't just employ nuts-and-bolts know-how, but also electrical and programming. We specialize in all makes and models of cars.
