Lighting Installation Reviews in Chapel Hill


My wife was running a carpet cleaner in our bedroom when we lost power to all the electrical outlets in the room. We tried to reset the circuit breaker but still had no power. We began searching for trouble shooting tips on the internet which said the next step should be to replace the individual circuit breaker. I went to the store and bought a new circuit breaker for about $6 and replaced the old one but still had now power to the outlets in our room. The next morning I began searching Angie's List for electrical service. After narrowing my choices down to about three providers I began making
calls. The first one wanted to be paid just for an estimate so they were ruled out. The second one said he could come out the following day so I made an appointment. I then called
to see if by
they could come out the same day.
was very nice and said that she would call
and see if he could squeeze me in that afternoon. She called right back and said that he could come by late that afternoon and look it over so I canceled the appointment with the other service provider.
called a few hours later and said that he was on his way over which allowed me time to put my dogs in their pens to avoid their interruption.
was very personable and got right to work. After I explained what had happened, and what I had already done, he said that sometimes a high powered appliance can cause a disruption to a circuit that was loosely connected but otherwise worked fine. After asking a few questions about where things had been plugged in and looking at how the circuit was laid out he focused on an outlet behind the dresser that had a large AC adapter plugged into it. He noted that sometimes when furniture is pushed up against the large AC adapters they force the outlet back into the box and cause the wiring (when it is pushed in to the back of the outlet rather than screwed onto the side) to come loose. The wiring in that particular outlet was indeed loose and
quickly repaired it and the circuit worked fine. He cleaned up and told me to give him a call if there were any further problems. I went around and plugged in all the lamps, computer, and reset the alarm clocks. A short time later, I came back into the room and found that the power was again out. I reset the circuit breaker and again had no power to that circuit. I called
back (he had just arrived back at home) and he said he would come right back out but I told him I would be fine waiting until the next morning. He suggested that I check each of the other outlets on the circuit (6 outlets) and if I felt comfortable doing so to re-wire each of the other outlets the same way he had done the one behind the dresser ( he emphasized the obvious precaution of making sure that there was no power to the each outlet before beginning any work on that outlet to avoid electrocution). The following morning I went ahead and pulled all the other outlets from the wall and re-wired each one by screwing wires onto the side posts (as he had done) instead of having them inserted into the back as the builder had them. That, however, did not fix the problem.
arrived shortly thereafter, and upon seeing what I had done, rechecked each outlet to make sure they were wired properly, then focused on the wall switches for the room. The wall switches in the bedroom controlled the ceiling lights and ceiling fan as well as the outlets, and the circuit breaker controlled all of them, but the lights and ceiling fan worked fine while the outlets did not.
took apart and re-wired the wall switches and the problem was solved. He refused to accept further payment for the return trip and promised to return again if there were any further problems, which has not been necessary. I was extremely happy with the cheerful eagerness and professionalism exhibited by both
and will certainly not hesitate to call on them again in the future.

The owner of Accipiter, Sandy, is a gem. He has the mind of an engineer as well as a wonderful eye for design. He is very precise and his recommendations to us were just outstanding. Better than I could have imagined. Our living room never had overhead lighting and he immdiately knew exactly what type of lighting we needed and where to locate the lights. When our electrician had questions, Sandy would get on the phone with them and patiently explain what needed to be done. In order to save us money, he gave my husband explicit instructions (and showed him in the store exactly what to do), so that we could hang our own pendant lights. Although the store is in
, he was willing to come out to our house in Chapel Hill in the evening (twice) as well as correspond via email and by phone. He walked into our newly remodeled kitchen, and immediately knew what pendants would look perfect. He is such a careful and precise person that he went through 8 different lights before he found three pendants which matched my specifications (they are hand made and each one is slightly different).His store is such a fun place too. It is part art gallery and gift shop as well as a lighting store. I will only use Sandy for my lighting needs in the future. What a find!

Lighting Installation reviews in Chapel Hill


I can't say enough great things about Bill Camp and TDK. He spent several hours with us on the first day looking at our kitchen and listening to our ideas. don't be concerned about spending a lot of time with him that first visit. His ideas unfold, so give it time. Then he

up a floor plan at no charge--the only kitchen designer of the four I contacted who were willing to do that. (Others charged as much as $3000 just to see their floor plan!) As we worked with him and discussed various ideas, he would go back to his computer and re-work various design features to meet our needs. He is very creative and the computer drawings gave us a perfect idea of how things would look. Bill is the most patient man. He worked with my husband and I (who are obsessive about decisions) for almost a year while we went through endless cabinet choices. He never became impatient and met with us on many Saturdays both at our house and his studio to fit our work schedule. He was willing to meet us at the tile store, come look at our floor color choices and advise us about every minute detail. We could call him at any time or email him and he would reply promptly and patiently. We had many, many questions and he was always happy to help and never said something could not be done. His cabinet and tile guys did the most outstanding job.

, the cabinet installer, is a perfectionist so everything is even and well done. If you have a problem with a cabinet swelling in the humidity, Bill or

will come back and fix it. A few of our original doors came with some

on them, and Bill took pictures and sent for replacements. You never have to ask him twice to do anything. He is efficient and responsive. In addition to the cabinets, tile and granite installation, Bill helps you design the interior of your cabinets and drawers, including dividers and inserts. He asked me to go get my largest appliances and pots to see if any drawers or shelves needed to be adjusted.In terms of price, Bill is very precise and will tell you if any of your choices will add a premium to your original estimate. There are no surprises. We live in Chapel Hill and although his office is in

, he was always willing to come to our house if he needed to look at something. Our kitchen is unbelievable. Stunning. We are thrilled beyond description. I would hire Bill Camp again without any reservations. The things that distinguished him from the other designers in my mind are:1)Willingness to show you the design before you hire him2)Willingness to meet on the weekends for working clients3)Infinite patience 4)Creativity5)Ability to work with a range of homeowners. The three houses we looked at before hiring him were all modest homes. That reassured us, as some other local designers seem to only work with very high end houses. Bill would be great at that as well, but we never felt pushed to order anything more expensive than we wanted. I am already thinking about what other projects he might help us with!

They came exactly when they said they would come. They did exactly what they said they would do and charged me exactly what they said they would charge. They cleaned up after themselves. They completed the job with great skill. I would use them again in the future.

I made the appointment and was told that they would call as soon as the technician left for my home. When I was called, they said it would take about 30 minutes to get there.

arrived 32 minutes later! He introduced himself at the door, put on booties to protect our carpet, and walked in to assess the job. He immediately said that will be no trouble. The package in the new fixture had the wrong screws for the junction box, but he had the correct ones in his truck. After installing the fixture successfully, he advised me about another electrical problem that has been troubling me. After looking at the problem for a minute or two, he told me that my worry was invalid. I'll fix this in a few minutes. He then removed all of the waste from the fixture installation.

did an absolutely excellent job. I wouldn't consider having anyone else do electrical work for me. Use them and you will be very pleased.

Excellent work. Very conscientious about safety and doing the job right. Cleaned up after working. He even put on protective covers on his shoes to not dirty the carpet. I've never seen that before.

It was a great experience. It was the second time I've used them. Mr.

called in advance to get the details of the job to ensure he understood its scope. The person who did the work was punctual, professional, and worked efficiently. I am very happy with them and will use them again with no reservations.

was easy to work with, lots of good ideas and created a kitchen that was exactly what I wanted. All subs were professional, responsible and reliable. Very responsive to any problems or changes.
- Gail C.

They were amazing to work with. We called them based on reviews on Angie's List and got an immediate response that they would call later in the day to go over details of the job.

worked with me on the phone for more than 30 minutes, looking at digital photographs I sent over to figure out what kind of work could be done. He was able to schedule the appointment within days of the call, but I asked for an appointment a week and a half later so that we could have time to think it through, etc. He scheduled us with his partner. As soon as we made a decision about the kitchen, I contacted to cancel and she was incredibly nice. All in all, I'd highly recommend them based on their professionalism and responsiveness alone!
- Marge L.

They were very professional. They installed everything with great precision, and offered to help in the future if we have trouble with any lights or balancing the fans. They also gave great advice about which lights/fans would fit in each space. Plus, their prices seemed appropriate.
