t know the best way.. We wanted a fan installed with a light fixture in a shower stall of a
small bathroom off our master suite in a 1956 ranch style house.
Also we was going to fix the leak in the shower.
He...more /> installed the fan and hooked up the fan /light to the same switch as
the vanity light. He presented me with a bill for $340. But in the
middle of the night if you turned on the light, you got blasted with a
bright light from the shower stall and a fan since he had put it on the
same switch as the vanity light. We asked that he put it on a separate
switch ( which in my sense is normal .... a separate switch for a fan ) .
He did this. But the new switch he installed in the wall in an odd
way. It was sticking out from the wall about 1/4 inch and their was
calking around it that was already separating from the wall.
We
found this odd so before he came the next day to pick up a check we went
into the attic to see what he had done and read the instructions for installation for the fan. We found he had not vented the
fan to the outside.. but just into the attic. The instruction in the box
for the fan clearly said the fan MUST be vented outside usually through
a soffit if possible and that the fan/light Must be on a GFI protected
circuit.
-The fan/light was NOT on a GFI protected circuit
-The fan/light was NOT vented outside
-The shower still leaked.
- The switch was not installed flush with the wall and was already separating from the wall.
The wiring wss a bit odd. It was now attached to another circuit that controlled the fan in the attik . So if that switch was off.. the fan in the bathroom would not work and ...most people would not have a clue why.
We have lots of extra circuits. There is no reason he coudl not just use one of those. I am not sure. I am not an elecrician so I don't know the best way.
I asked why the switch was installed like that and he said there are
tabs on the box that made it impossible to install flush with the wall. . I asked a carpenter of 35 years
about that and he said - "Yes, I know those tabs. you break them off
and install the fixture flush with the wall. " I asked him if he was
"finished the job. He said "yes.. is there a problem". I said... the fan is not vented outside. He said "oh.. i was going to get a part for that". But the fact is he had already 2 days ealier presented me with a bill and it is just by
we checked and found what he had done. And he was asking to be paid. He only
this about the "extra part" when i questioned what he had done. In anycase.. his new scheme was to use an existing roof vent. But when i read about this... it is NOT recommended.
We cannot use the shower since we believe it is not
safe. We now need to call a plumber for the leak in the shower and an
electrician to install the fan/light fixture properly and safely.
We feel this person does not try to do things properly. Either he doesn't know or doesn't care. It is not clear to me which. Though he could simply have read the instuctions on the box.

Contacted "
" via Angie's List,....he came out soon afterwards to give estimate. However, I did have to wait couple of weeks to have the work done. He did awesome, work very quickly and professionally. I am very pleased overall and certainly plan to use his services in the future. I highly recommend his work,
I felt bad that I changed the paint color mid-job, but
was very nice and extremely helpful in assisting me with the choice of a new color. He didn't seem frustrated with me or anything, just went out of his way to help. Paint job looks wonderful !
His helper,
, is great too and very nice and professional,.......he's just a little difficult to communicate with,.(the experience encourages me to brush up on my spanish speaking, which I should be doing anyway)!!

What I didn't like was that he ran almost an hour late. When he did show up he was very clean and efficient. He did the work in two and a half hours and was very nice to work with.

It went very well - I was recovering from surgery and knew I could depend on them. We have used them a number of times and always been very pleased and they always find the best way to do something and offer money saving suggestions.

The price and the amount of time to complete the job was excellent and the attitude was professional and friendly. They came out on Monday for an estimate and scheduled me for Tuesday. Before they left, the made sure that all tasks were completed to my satisfaction and asked if there was anything else I wanted them to look at or do before they left. The estimate was exactly the amount that I paid. They even tried to fix my attic door, which doesn't close all the way, just because they noticed it. I would recommend this company 10 times over!

sent two electricians to our house the day after I called for an appointment. I had already purchased the 3 ceiling fans. They were very punctual, calling to let me know they were on their way. All the work was completed in about 90 minutes. Everything was cleaned up afterward.

had no problem when I asked him to do a new antenna outlet in the family room even though it wasn't part of the original scope of work. They had to move my heavy TV cabinet and run the cable from the basement to the wall on the first floor. That was a lot of extra work and he only charged me a few dollars extra. They were fast and thorough, the ceiling fans look great and we're very happy.
