Tracie M.

Originally spoke with Brett re: whole home standby generator. We chose not to install but he suggested an alternative for allowing a portable generator to power our panels. The quote, at a bit over $1k, was less than other electricians that don't do this as often. Brady and Alex arrived on time, knew what they were doing, and were polite and professional. Literally turn-key service including the admin folks on the phone. Highly recommended.

Everything went so well. He came right on time and assessed the situation. We spoke about several options and he gave me his opinion that I should pursue the one that was least costly (very honest). He completed the work expeditiously and the price was very reasonable. He cleaned up the area well. Then I asked him if he could help me with something else, and he did so with a smile and at a very reasonable cost. Wow. I am awed by this kind of service.

I think the true test of any business is how they respond when the job turns out to be more difficult than expected. I've seen other service professionals take advantage of such situations but Gault did the opposite, worked with the situation until the troubleshooting produced perfect results. What was most remarkable is that they stayed cheerful and polite in what had to be a frustrating situation. Great work by Paul and Robert - Gault Electric is the company I will call whenever I need an electrician. As a bonus, the administrative assistants who answer the phone and handle scheduling are top notch, efficient and very courteous which is unfortunately getting rare these days.

Antares M.

Everyone was very friendly and professional, from making the appointment, to the electricians coming to fix the box. The guys even called and came out hours before my slotted appointment because they had another customer that wasn't available for their time slot. They were great with my 3 year old daughter, and my small dog running around. The job was completed in about 45 minutes and they were very understanding about me getting my daughter out of the bath since they came early. The only complaint I have (it's a minimal one, and the only reason they didn't get "A" ratings across the board) things got a little messy. The screw that held the box to the 2x4 was stripped, so in order for them to get the old box off, they had to saw it off. I hadn't anticipated this so I didn't move any of the items on the sink counter underneath, namely our toothbrushes. They didn't tell me to move them (in their defense I was busy in another room with my daughter), they didn't move them for me either. As a result I have had to switch out my families toothbrushes before we needed to, but it's a small price to pay for a job otherwise well done, in a timely, and friendly manner.

Description of Work
Needed the blue electrical box, that houses the the wires for our bathroom light fixture, and attaches the light fixture to the wall, replaced. Discovered about 5 days before they came to fix it, that the box was broken where the box holds the nut for the light fixture.

My ceiling fan/light fixture stopped working so I called Gault Electric and they set up an appointment for someone to come out and fix it. The were very friendly when I spoke to them on the phone and made me feel welcome so that was a good first impression. The electrician arrived on time, I showed him the problem and he diagnosed and fixed it in less than 5 minutes. The electrician was friendly and professional and I was extremely pleased that he was able to fix the problem so quickly and easily. I will definitely use this company again if I have any electrical issues.

The work took about ten hours and a crew of up to six for various phases. In addition to placing the generator, trenching for the natural gas line was needed plus installation of two panels feeding the electrical supply panels. Cables needed to be snaked through a finished basement chase from one side of the house (generator) to the other side (electrical supply service). There was no damage anywhere and the crew cleaned up perfectly. They were happy to answer any questions I had during the work

The estimator and installer were both professional and responsive. The two outlets look great, the drywall looks perfect. One outlet was wired from an outlet on the side of the wall, and the other outlet had to be run from a switch up to attic and down into another wall. A little expensive, but considering no drywall damage, and the difficulty of threading wire up and down wall cavities, I am happy that I did not try to do it myself!

We’ve only had electrical services once. They were recommended by the service manager from the builder. We might have even met them at the home show. We called for an estimate and they were out the next day to give us an estimate. The gentleman spent a fair amount of time just discussing options, then reviewing everything. He explained what they do and we agreed to the work. They scheduled it for about 2 days later. They came out and did the work quickly. They had to do some wall board cutting to get the surge protectors in under the panels. They cleaned up everything. Everything worked fine. They stayed and balanced the fan blades so it worked, so it didn’t vibrate at all. They were quick, clean and efficient.

They were ~2 hours after the window, but did a super job. He REALLY knew his stuff and fairly quickly isolated a fairly hidden problem behind a light switch cover (I never would have found it had I tried...not sure I knew where to start anyway). Very professional. Would recommend them!

Very professional. Contract was spot on. Albert Cannon, Master HVAC and Gas Fitter, is exceptional and pays attention to detail. Explain all that would be done. Took the extra time and effort to make sure that all was perfect and that we know how the smart thermostats worked. My standards are high and they were met without my having to come behind and check. I have used Gault before for generator installation, which was also excellent. I was not disappointed and strongly recommend Gault. Great company to work with--true professionals.

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.

I had met with a few companies for estimates to have an 24x7 active Generator for the whole house. Gault Electric came in with a price I could not pass up. I sat with Mike Gault and we went over everything about the generator and pricing along with options. When I accepted Mike and I set up a schedule. The only issue we had to the schedule was getting gas supplied to the house. Mike and staff took care of all aspects of getting the generator installed. This included permits, inspections, and helping getting gas to the generator. All schedules were met to the point of waiting for the gas company to complete their task. As soon as the gas was run to the house Gault came out and completed the installation of the generator quickly. Gault electric met their schedules working around the gas company. The day I told Mike I wanted him to do the work Kaylyn contacted me to get the information needed for the permits and Julie contacted me about information concerning the gas installation. I was thoroughly impressed by the fast action of his office staff. They both have helped me promptly when requested. James, who is one of the Gault electricians was fast and thorough on the installation. I didn't get the name of his assistant but between the two of them they worked quietly and fast while keeping the area clean. I would not only recommend Mike, his office staff , and technician with his helper to anyone who wants electrical work completed, I have already talked to Mike about another job I will like to schedule soon.

I met with a few contractors and Gault Electric beat all their prices. I met with Mike Gault and we set up a schedule. I had gas service that had been turned off for over 20 years. Mike and his staff took care of the total installation, including getting gas turned on and a gas meter installed for the generator, permits and inspections. Turning on the gas and getting the meter installed, stalled the completion of getting the generator activated but as soon as the gas was completed Gault technicians were on site to complete the task in a highly acceptable time

They broke our new outdoor light on July 29, 2016 and promised to replace it right away. We have called them at least 6 times now and we get the same excuse. "The part was back ordered, or the part was shipped and lost or the part needs to be picked up at UPS". The light was broken by Gault Electric on July 29, 2016 and it is now September 5, 2016 and, it is STILL broken!!!!

Unfortunately, the light was lost in shipping multiple times. In addition, we had two back-to-back hurricanes that hit the area in which we service. This is not an excuse, but a reality that caused us here at Gault Electric to go from around 100 calls a day to approximately 400 calls. Being in the service and emergency repair business, our services were sought after and stretched to unchartered waters. In an attempt to make everyone happy, our employees were working 6-7 days a week and some of our procedures were not followed as normal. It is my understanding that the light issue has been resolved.

Terrible! I called on Wed (8/31) to request service. I told the lady I spoke with at Gault that I thought the problem was associated with a "potential problem" they had ID'd during a previous service. She told me someone would be at my home today (9/2) between 3:00PM - 5:00PM. I called the Gault office at about 4:15PM to confirm someone was coming and to also confirm they would have the parts to at least fix the issue I described. The lady I spoke with notified me that NO ONE would be coming today and my appointment was rescheduled for 9/9!!! If I had not called, I would have never known nobody would be coming and to make matters worse, my Generator will not be working the weekend we are expecting a severe "Tropical Storm." They are obviously a company that is NOT reliable.

Service Provider Response

As we have stated in a previous response about the tropical storms/ hurricanes, Gault Electric experienced an influx of calls from an average of 100 to approximately 400 calls a day that seemed to go on for weeks. The reality is that there are 3 employees that work in the office for Gault Electric and the phones rang relentlessly and we tried desperately to accommodate and repair as many projects we could. Unfortunately, some customers fell through the cracks. The storms were back to back and overlapped that cause havoc, not only for us, but also for our suppliers, vendors, etc.
