Governor's from Virginia and Maryland have issued executive stay-at-home orders.  In an effort to help our customer's  answer the question "is it ok to work",   you can read the Virginia Executive Order here, and the Maryland Executive Order here.  If you are performing projects in Accomack County, those projects remain active at this time.  (March 31, 2020)

PLEASE NOTE:  During this time there may be a delay in electrical inspections, due to all electrical inspections being done by a third party inspector.  We appreciate your patience.
