"The staff that was punctual and were very professional. They always maintained and cleaned the site when finished at the end of the day. As long as we're in the Capital District" we'll always feel secure about buying a house that is not quite up to our standards because we know Kitchen & Bath World will make it so.

is very pleasant and prompt, and we were pleased with the electrical part of the job itself. His charges are reasonable, and he actually didn't charge" us for some of his time, when he felt that a job went slower than it should have. I'm sorry to say, though, that in the end we were very unhappy with the work he did for us. When
and his assistant installed the recessed lighting, they caused a great deal of damage to the plaster ceiling, and though they tried to patch it, we needed to get an experienced plasterer to undo their work and start from scratch. Perhaps against our better judgment, we gave
the
to continue, and he then proceeded to create a huge hole in a different ceiling when he changed a fan--a hole we now have to have professionally repaired again. At that point, we asked him to leave. Though he didn't charge us for the last day's work, the damage he did cost far more to repair than what we would have paid him. So my two cents: if you're looking to do non-invasive jobs,
may end up doing them well, but I suggest being very careful if any aspect of the project requires loving attention to the materials around the wiring. In our case,
just wasn't careful with these--and failed to offer even the slightest apology, or take responsibility in any way, when we addressed these issues.

removed the old fixture, filled the hole with insulation and put in a new box over the kitchen table. He was very patient with me while I determined the placement" and height above the table. He also installed a dimmer for the light. He asked for a broom and dust
so he could clean up which wasn't necessary as there was very little mess. A five second sweep with my vacuum was all that was needed. He did a great job and I would indeed hire him again.

Here is about the same question (for 1 fan) a while back, with answer:

http://answers.angieslist.com/how-cost-install-ceiling-fan-ceiling-light-exists-q46721.aspx

Your total cost could be from 1.5-3 times that shown in the answer, depending on how much of the wiring for the three fans he can combine - i.e. can he easily run one power circuit for all 3 fans, then just tap off that for switches and runs to the fans, are they fans only or with lights (double the wiring and switches), etc. Note the costs do NOT include drywall/panelling repair or painting to match. Also, you are going to be near the top end of the estimates, because in all probability your access is poor, and 3 fans are almost certain to require a totally new run from the breaker box.

Unless you have an open exposed-joist attic above where the fans are to go AND the top of the walls the switches will go in, you can expect substantial holes in walls and ceiling to pull the wires and fasten them - by code, you cannot just pull wires between joist and let them lie on the top of the ceiling drywall - you have to staple them to joists every few feet, so you end up with several 1-2 foot holes typically near top of the wall (to drill through top plate), near side of ceiling to grab and bend wire coming up wall, and maybe one mid-ceiling to reach in and fasten wire, then of course the two openings that are ultimately fully concealed by the switch plate and the fan mounting plate or dome.

Before you get into this project I would check with the condo management if you are allowed to do this - there are limits to how much you can modify your condo and how much you can modify or add in the way of electric circuits.

Depends a tremendous amount on access - if accessible from exposed-joist in attic above, then you might get this for about $300-500 or so for the wiring and installation, plus $200-400 for the materials and dimmer switches, plus the cost of the light fixtures themselves. Probably about $100-150 to repair ceiling if single hole for one fixture, to $200-300 if existing trough-type flourescent fixtures. Painting the repair could be $100 - 250 depending on whether he can match the patch, or has to repaint the entire ceiling to get a uniform effect - which is more common in kitchens, which usually have untextured ceilings and gloss paint. Another alternative it is have the hole patched and prime and plain paint it yourself, then cover the area with a decorative emblem or crest to avoid having to repaint the whole ceiling. Personally I would just put a compatible style fixture in its place, which you might or might not choose to use, so you avoid the cost of repairing the hole and painting entirely, as that is "lost" $.

If the kitchen/dining room ceiling is not accessible from above, then the electrician will have to tear into wall and ceilings, so installation labor might go to $400-600, and drywall reapir and painting probably to about $400-600, depending on how many holes the elecrtrician has to put in and assuming entire surface painting to get a uniform paint look on each disturbed wall or ceiling.

One possibility for savings might be low voltage lighting for some of the kithcen fixtures, which might reduce your wiring cost and number of holes if you do not have attic access.

Be careful on the dimmable LED bulbs - be aware that dimmable bulbs generally cost a lot more, and many brands don't perform well in dimming mode because they are designed to run at a constant voltage, and a lot will not dim past about 40% power before they flick out or start flickering. Some will actually fry the electronics and burn up at lower voltage. Also, there are three different types of dimmers and different bulbs need a different type dimmer switch, so you will have to be careful to always buy the right type bulb, and use all the same type bulb in a given circuit. Here is an article on the types of problmes you can have with LED dimming, even with bulbs designed to be dimmed -

was very knowledgeable and thorough. There turned out to be plaster and lathe under the sheetrock of my ceiling, which made formore work and complication when my recessed lights were installed, but this was handled very competently and the lights look great.

I'm always pleased with the result. I don't think they're expensive. They always give an estimate before the work is done and will work with you on what needs to be done first. We bought an older fixer upper (always go for the full inspection) to save(?) $$$ we did not have our house fully inspected when we bought it Surprise! But as I've said,

Mr.
Albany Lighting Companies Provider Name Locked
called before 9:00 a.m., when he was to arrive, to tell me he'd be late because of traffic on 787. He showed up about ten minutes or so after 9:00 a.m. (Just the call makes him worth his wait!) He looked over my list, then looked at each place and at the fans/lights and so on that I had. I had arranged for him to do the fans and to give me an estimate on the rest if I could afford the rest, he'd do it all that day if he could. His helper started on the first fan while Mr.
Albany Lighting Companies Provider Name Locked
went to his truck to write up an estimate. The estimate was definitely within my price range, so he went to work on the other tasks. They worked cleanly, neatly, and efficiently. Took lunch for a reasonable amount of time, and returned to finish up. They were both professional, polite, and respectful of me and my property.

The person who came was punctual, professional, and respectful. He looked over my list and looked at each part of the job (that is, where what would go). He then went to the truck and totaled up the cost, came in, sat down and discussed his prices with me. I was genuinely stunned at what he wanted to charge me! I said there was not a
Albany Lighting Companies Provider Name Locked
that I would pay those prices, at which time he offered me a "Service Partner Agreement Plan" to save thirteen percent. I asked why thirteen percent, why not ten or twenty-five or even twelve and a half! His answer to everything was that he's doing what the book says: prices and thirteen percent service contract. I said the book could say what it wanted, that other companies have other books, and that I'd go with someone else. I said good-bye. He charged me a $50 dispatch fee and left.

is a great all-around handyman. He is very responsive to my questions, always does the job right the first time, and the prices he charges are very fair. I would recommend him to anyone that is really looking for a good overall contractor to help with various tasks around the house.
