Testimonials

 

Bob:

Our Generac generator was installed Friday, 07/11/14.  The installation team consisted of Josh, Brian, and Dane.  We are totally satisfied with the installation and with our interaction with the team.

We received a call, in advance of their arrival, they arrived on time, and worked in a very efficient and professional manner.  Josh provided an overview of the installation and estimates of timing, including the time that we would be without power to the house.  Everyone answered any questions in a personable manner.  Before their departure, the yard and basement was cleaned up, with no clutter left behind.

We would recommend Oak Electric to our friends.  Bill & Marilyn

 


Imagine the best contractor you've ever had in your house:  He's on time, respectful of your property, works diligently, is very polite, knows what he's doing, and doesn't make you crazy -- even though YOU may make HIM crazy!  This is a description of Russ, who did a variety of electrical jobs at our home on May 1-2, 2014.  Thank you.

 Sincerely, Dick and Kate E.  Bloomfield Hills

 Dear Michelle,
I am sending you this short note of appreciation of Oak Electric's services. From the time that Gary came to the property to review the work to be performed and gave me an estimate of the cost of the installed generator, to yesterday's install, the entire team was exemplary in their professionalism and courtesy!

I will be very pleased to recommend your company to any prospective customers.

Have a great day!  James, Fort Gratiot,      20kW Generac Generator Installation

"Well, we finally have the pleasure of expressing our sincere satisfaction with selecting Oak Electric for the installation of an Air Vent 24” whole house fan at our personal residence. And, so we just want to take a moment to share with you what an awesome job everyone did. We’re so thrilled with your install work that we’re copying in some key people: The person who introduced us in the first place, Minesh Baxi, the leaders of our referral organization, Chuck Gifford and Al Crawford, and we’re also including the e-mail for the manufacturer. This is because we’re pleased with their product, as well, and we believe they should be made aware of what terrific work your firm does.

From Lisa who handled the scheduling, to Bob Mayes who took Mark’s initial call, to Russell Toth completing the install,  they all really are an asset to your organization, and everybody represented you very well. Russell, as your on-site representation, is a true professional. Everything looks really, really good, and functions perfectly: Mark is writing to you enjoying a significant breeze in his home office now (4500 CFM will do that). The project cost was very reasonable in itself, and the added kindness of an LBN discount was “the frosting”. Thank you very much for that.

So, Gary, we want you to know that we will recommend Oak Electric without reservation to any of our clients, and will proactively seek ways of finding additional projects. Any suggestions you have in that regard, we’re happy to hear.

All my best congratulations to your entire team."  Mark & Tricia R. TMI Realty LLCevi

Member Comments: They were terrific. Called ahead that they were on their way. Arrived on time. And installed the generator in the period of time they said it would take. They cleared the snow away from the house and put down a pad for the generator. Their work was impeccable. Josh and his crew were very professional and efficient. I cannot say enough positive things about their workmanship.

Description Of Work:   Oak Electric installed a 20 kW Generac whole home natural gas back-up generator.  The crew arrived on time and completed the job quicker than estimated.  They were professional and thorough.  When installation was complete they went over all the aspects of operation which included features and service.  We had a power outage a few weeks later and the generator worked flawlessly for (4)days.  (1) small issue arose, a minor oil leak for which they returned out a couple of weeks later diagnosed, repaired and completed an oil change free of charge.  The total cost was higher than we wanted to spend but, after the experience of the install and after service, we realized that is was money well spent.  We would recommend and use Oak Electric in the future.

Oak Electric sold me the generator and has performed warranty and annual service since purchase.  The installation was done on time.  Installers were efficient and helpful.  Upon completion, clean up was excellent.  Annual service has been scheduled to meet my schedule.  Their review of generator performance and fine tuning was thorough and not rushed.  I am pleased with generator performance and I would highly recommend this company.

Description Of Work: 

Oak Electric furnished and installed a complete Photovoltaic Solar power system with battery backup.   This included 18 solar panels, a grid tie inverter, battery inverter, 8 batteries, battery housing, and monitoring package.   They handled all required paperwork and coordination with Detroit Edison for connecting my system to the grid.  They also arranged for the required inspections and made sure that my system satisfied the inspector.

Member Comments: 

The sales representative was very knowledgeable, answered all my questions, and provided all the advice I needed.   He was able to tell me the pros and cons of the different brands of solar panels etc and to explain the available the tax rebates and how I can get money by selling excess electricity when I have it and also renewable energy credits.  The guys from Oak Electric always came when they said they would and took care of everything. They were always very polite and considerate while working at my house.     With a house as old as mine (103 yrs) and technology as new as solar which is still evolving,  there are bound to be some surprises along the way but the Oak people dealt with everything that came up in a very professional manor and made sure the job was done right.   The whole project was totally painless for me.

Description Of Work: Installed a whole house generator and hooked it up

Member Comments: 

After deciding it was time to purchase a backup generator for our house which had lost power at least a couple of days twice a year for many years, I researched online and checked Angieslist to see who did this kind of work. Oak Electric was one of three I decided to call for an estimate.  They responded efficiently and set up an appointment after making sure that I really wanted a generator because they are expensive.
During the estimate Jeremy toured the house and I was asked many questions to determine the right size for my house and supplied all the info I needed.  After talking to two other companies I chose Oak Electric.  One other company was  just as helpful and knowledgeable but gave a higher estimate.  The third company which has been in business for many years and has a good reputation and is highly rated on Angieslist, acted as if they couldn't care less about doing the job.
Oak Electric estimated a six week order time (as did the other company) and the generator arrived and was ready to install in six weeks.  We set up an appointment and they were here on time.  It took about five hours to install. They did stop for a bite of lunch.  They cleaned up afterward and explained what I needed to do.  They also had to give in to my pesty German shepherd and play toss the Kong with her in between hooking up the generator duties.
Jeremy the salesman and manager came by later to inspect everything and did some adjusting also explained the upkeep on the generator.
I decided to use the no-interest payment plan thru Generac and Jeremy helped me set up the application.
There was a bit of a mixup because I had decided to have my propane dealer add the extra fuel pipe from my tank, but Jeremy talked with the installer and they worked out the final hookup.

All the people I dealt with from this company were more than helpful, cheerful, efficient, friendly, and easy to contact.  MIchelle the telephone contact, the installers, and Jeremy.ort Da
