Home Generator

The only way in which weather is predictable is that it isn’t always going to be comfortable. Storms will come; sometimes just little thunderstorms, but sometimes ice storms or tornadoes. The next time a big storm hits and your home loses electricity for days or even weeks, where are you going to be left?

This gentleman decided to answer that question with: “Not hot in the summer, not cold in the winter, and I’m not going to be throwing away a year’s worth of spoiled food out of my refrigerator and freezers, either.”

We helped him guard against those losses by installing a natural gas generator with the capability of generating enough power for his entire home when that electricity-stealing storm comes.

First we poured the concrete pad to set the generator on:

Time to deliver the generator to its new home:

Here it comes:

And the new 45 KW Generac® natural gas generator is in place, ready to power the home whenever its needed:

What do you think? You can’t stop the storms from coming; the question is: do you want to set your teeth and try to survive a sweltering home in summer or a freezing one in winter? Or would you rather get a step ahead of Mother Nature this time and take measures to protect your home? We’re here to help at (870) 845-1121.

Here the dirt work is done and the concrete pad is in place:IMG_20170131_073302431

We poured a cement walkway from the driveway to the walk-in door on the side of the shop, as well as a slanted approach from the driveway to the Amarr® garage door on the front of the building:IMG_20170215_132727360

We installed Acme® bricks 3 feet up from the ground, with the rest of the exterior walls covered in CertainTeed® vinyl Dutch lap siding in the Desert Tan color:IMG_20170228_104714351IMG_20170228_105003268
