"The work was good and the techs were nice but they drilled a hole through the second story floor. We didn't notice the hole till after the provider left. I" am going to contact the provider to repair the damage.

"Contractor showed up as promised. He was here about an hour and did a decent job. Now I purchased his services using an Angie's List "Big Deal"." When he was done, he claimed in addition to the $99 I paid already, there was a $30 trip charge. Now I've purchased using Big Deal's before and I never had a contractor try to hit me up with a trip charge. I can understand a job costing more if some unforeseen serious issue arose. For example, on this job it clearly stated having to install a box for the fixture was extra. That I can understand. But if I purchase an offer through Angie's List and no trip charge is mentioned, I would not expect the contractor to try to collect one. I told him I would not pay it as the offer was silent on a trip charge. He did not push it but said that should have been stated in the offer.

THE Cost of the recessed light is largly determinate on Where ,You purchase the product and the number you buy .Big Box dicount stores have products made oversea's that are less expensive than those found at Custom Bath & Kitchen Stores , but the products are often riddled with problems , missing parts , defects etc,

 

A typical light will run $ 35.00 to $ 85.00

 

However , the true cost of recessed lighting is involved in getting circuits or circuity to the switch and lighting system .In NEW construction , this matter is easily dealt with by installing circuits and   hardware during framing . Whereas , with remodeling , installing new lighting into existing spaces , requires wall & ceiling opening ,closure , repair , repainting & finishing

 

I have been involved in projects where the lighting cost but $500.00 ,,

while the installation & finishing costs exceeded $ 2500.00

?

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 -

They arrived on time and worked very fast. We mostly needed the light fixed but we would have paid more for a service call and we had our electrical system checked too.

While they were helpful and accommodating with repairing the issues that had been caused by them they sent an apprentice with the electrician and needed to come back two times and redo things. I feel they did not sent the most qualified electricians.

we've been using the company for two years, and we always have good experiences. They complete projects quickly and efficiently, and their electricians are knowledgeable as well as professional. We'd definitely recommend them.

They did an excellent job. Two technicians came out and completed the work in about an hour and a half. I told them what I needed and they came prepared with the correct parts. The light was not made for a sloping roof that I have but they were able to make it work. I was very pleased they were able to do so. They were punctual and professional. They even offered to dispose of the old chandelier which I really appreciated. It was very easy to schedule the service. They were pretty booked but my schedule was flexible. I told them to let me know when something came available and they made sure to do just that. I did have to call twice to get the service scheduled, however.

I had a new light fixtures that needed to be installed in 2 different bathrooms. The tech was able to install the light fixture in my mothers bathroom just fine and he did a good job. In my bathroom he wasn't able to fix the light fixture. It needed to be removed from the mirror and he couldn't do it. They charged me $35 extra but couldn't complete the job.

Extremely POOR quality of work, unprofessional personnel who could barely spoke English, poor communication + overcharged by additional $$$. Equipped with the rudimentary equipment and tools. Left the ceiling full of holes, throw away all the sheetrock cutouts!! Unlicensed Electrician!! This outfit sent me another quotation in excess of $500 to fix what should have been done right in the first time!. I now had to hire another contractor to pay $2,000 to fix what they damaged. Please be aware - this company uses low cost sub-contractors and they are just a middle-man... Angie's list does a poor job of qualifying these deals, which have cost me triple or more of the special prices and deals used so far.

The owner did the job and he was very prompt. The price was really good and he did good work. He got the job done in half a day.
