I hired Kevin to install a chandelier. His quote was the most reasonable and he finished the project perfectly! I am thrilled. He stopped by the day prior to the job to take measurements and talk through the plan (where to place the switch, where to run the wires, etc). He showed up on time, got right to work and did not stop until complete. From start to finish (including invoicing/payment), it was less than 4 hrs. I am extremely happy I went with Kevin, who is a licensed electrician, b/c I received quotes from 3 other licensed electricians in the area (on Thumbtack) and they quoted upwards of $1200 for the job and estimated 6-8hrs to complete (this was originally for an in-wall installation). During my selection period, I gave them the same info and videos, that I gave Kevin, but their prices were still so much higher.
For in-wall, Kevin quoted $300 (mine was a very light chandelier under 36 lbs). Kevin later suggested wire-molding where the wires would run along the surface of the wall, which requires no cutting into the walls or ceilings and quoted me about $250. Therefore, I asked for new quotes for wire-molding from the previous electricians, 1 of the other electricians returned with $1000+materials and another electrician came back around $800+materials and this is with NO cutting into walls and no patch work needed!!!!
Kevin explained how the wire-molding would work and I did some research and found that there is no way this method is worth $800. So I hired Kevin and I LOVE the results. Bottom line: Kevin has the most fair prices, works efficiently, and the job was done perfectly. Beware of overinflated quotes from others.
