    Gault Electric LLC
    I had met with a few contractors seeking bids to install a generator. Gault Electric gave me an estimate I could not refuse. Working with Mike Gault we talked about my options and what type of generator I should look into. He was very knowledgeable and friendly as we worked to set up a scheduling schedule. The part we could not schedule was getting a gas hookup for the house. He assured me all would be taken care of. I said ok and we agreed on pricing and scheduling. I was impressed on how fast things started to happen then. Kaylyn from the office contacted me to make sure of information for permits and inspections. Julie, also in the office, contacted me about the gas hookup. As per schedule, the generator was installed by Mike, James and his helper (I forgot his name) . They worked quietly but fast and cleaned up when leaving so except for times when interaction was necessary they did not disturb anyone. The worked stopped for a few days while waiting for the gas installation. Once that was completed they promptly returned and completed the generator install. I would recommend Gault Electric for any electric task that needs to be done. I have already talked to Mike about my next project.

    American Mechanical Inc

      Home office sent annual maintenance reminder by USPS.  We scheduled an appointment on a convenient day and time.  Mechanic arrived on time and immediately began work after inquiring if we we had any problems or questions about the genterator's performance.   Even though this is a Virginia Beach company, they have service personnel and maintenance trucks in the Newport-Hampton-Williamsburg area on constant stand-by.

    Gault Electric LLC
    The estimator arrived on time, assessed my power needs and provided me with a very good price for the generator required. Moreover,Gault met the cost of a competitors bid and I was able to bargain with the company for a free first year's maintenance service.  Any questions I had concerning other bids, the Gault estimator was able to answer and provide me with questions to ask them.
    The date of the installation had to be moved once, but I was informed and the change actually worked to my advantage as we had our daughter and family visiting during the scheduled installation date.
    I was surprised the day before the installation to have the main electrician assigned to my job show up to assess the situation and begin the actual preparation.  The pad area was selected, leveled and the pad installed that afternoon.
    The day of the installation, they arrived early (~8 a.m.) and commenced work.  There must have been 5 or 6 people working together all at the same time but in harmony.  Even the co-owner of the company came to keep his hand in the electrical work by using his tools, primarily with the transfer switch.  It was go, go, go for about four hours for this team.  The electrical inspector came and gave final approval around 11 a.m. and the crew left before 1 p.m. to get lunch and go to another job site. That afternoon, the generator was plumbed and the line was set up for pressure testing.
    The next morning, the gas line was inspector-approved and in the afternoon the gas line was connected to the meter by a very experienced person.  She told me the things to look out for with the engine/generator, the sequencing of events and we ran through two transfers of power.  She was very good and thorough, documenting all important items for my quick referral.
    All in all, the Gault team was VERY PROFESSIONAL, quick, well-trained and easy to work with.  I highly recommend them to anyone who needs a generator to provide them with the right-sized unit and to have it installed in a prompt and correct manner.

    Eastwood Electrical & Generators
    When doing my original research, I was calling around to make appointments for bids. I called Eastwood Electric and call went to voice mail. I was not in the mood to leave a message, but to my surprise Mike Eastwood called me back within 20 minutes. That impressed me. We scheduled an appointment for the next day. Mike showed up within 15 minutes of our set time. We talked a few minutes and I explained what I wanted. He then started figuring and calculating and provided me with a bid that day on the spot. This also impressed me because I had 4 other contractors come by and not one of them provided me with a bid the same day. One still has not provided a bid and the job has been completed.
    I gave the job to Mr. Eastwood and he performed the installation exactly as he stated he would. His people were very professional and extremely good at their craft. His electrician and helper stayed on the job until the task was completed despite the fact that the temperature that day was in the upper 90's. They both worked constantly throughout the day until all electrical connections were hooked up and they left without leaving any mess behind.
    The gas company had to install their equipment next and even they completed the job quickly which allowed Eastwood's gas man to complete his work. There was a slight 2 day delay with him, however, he did finally come on a Sunday and installed his piping. The only real delay was with the city inspector and even that was only a few days.
    I recommend Eastwood Electric to everyone who needs a standby generator installed. I believe them to be a very reputable and honest company and I will DEFINITELY be calling them for any of my electrical needs. I have NO don'ts to report.

    Gault Electric LLC
    Mr. Gault came to our house nearly on time. He was courteous and professional. He assessed the situation at our home and after some explanation and some literature, he stated he would email a quote to me in 2-3 days which he did. However, because of the size of his company, (22 employees) which drives up the overhead to operate, his cost to install generator was approximately 16% higher than the company I finally hired to perform the task. He stated his company had the Lowe's Home Improvement contract for the state. Also, his after install yearly maintenance was double the cost.
    However, I do believe he would have performed an adequate job installing this equipment. He stated his company installs approximately 1 generator a day and that much repetition does create alot of experience

    WEST ELECTRIC INC
    I liked the price and his approach to solving my problem, so i agreed to move forward. He ordered the equipment, and began installation a couple of weeks later. Although his crew encountered many surprises during the rewiring process, they were able to overcome each and every challenge, and a week or so later, I was fully powered in case of emergency.
    The installation crew was friendly, professional, and clean. They came in the first day and poured the concrete pad and trenched for the gas line and conduit for the electrical feeds. While there was sometimes messy things going on, our house was respected, as was our privacy, and they cleaned up every evening during the installation. The outdoor work was very neat and unobtrusive, and the indoor work (panels, wiring, etc) was neat and workmanlike. David took care of all permits, inspections, and interaction with the city and the gas company. His plumbing subcontractor also did an excellent job. He and David were there for all inspections and testing, and David was very involved daily to make sure everything went as planned. He did and excellent job of project management.
    I found West Electric to be an excellent company to do residential work, and will call them any time I have a need for an electrician.

    I have entered this before. I think they did a great job and the generator has saved me some downtime a few times already. The company, service, and generator are all great.
