For Residents & Business Owners
How long do you take to complete a project?
Each project is unique; therefore, the estimated time to complete a project really depends on the scope of the job.
When do you start work in the morning and what time can I expect you to finish work at the end of a day?
Generally, our crews are on the job site from 7:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. However, there may be city/town ordinances that require us to start later and end earlier. Either way, notification is made to all residents and business owners in advance of all non-emergency jobs. These notices, known as Abutter Notices, are sent out by the utility company we are contracted with to perform the service. Additionally, it is our practice to have our supervisors visit with the residents and business owners in the vicinity of the job site.

What is my lawn going to look like if you are working in front of my house?
There may be times that our work requires us to disturb a property in order to install your gas service line. When this happens, we are committed to restoring the property as best we can to maximize your satisfaction with the process.
I’m a business owner. What is going to happen when I have customers or deliveries?
Our goal is to minimize the impact to your business as much as possible. If our work requires us to block normal access to your business, we will attempt to establish visible and alternate means of access for your customers and vendors.
