6 potlights in kitchen

John's crew of two men arrived at my door on a Friday afternoon, installed 6 potlights in my kitchen. We discussed placement of potlight. Let me tell you, I was amazed at the work the two of them did. They finished the job quick with no mess. Amazing job, quick, clean and very good workers. John I will have you back soon and will recommend you to my friends. (I already did) Thanks once again, you did such a good job for me. Anyone looking for good workers with quality work, Mr. Potlight is your man!

Interior potlights

Outstanding service and quality work. On-time and a great company to work with. And after the job was finished, you wouldn't have even known that they were in the house. 'What more can you say about Mr. Potlight?

exterior potlights

Mr. Potlight installed approx. 24 exterior potlights in very cold temperatures in 2008. The electricians arrived on the scheduled day, worked very quickly and did not leave until the job was done that day. They were all very professional and did an excellent job.

Installation of 16 potlights on the main floor of the house

This guy is in popular demand. It's him and 2 other guys that do the installation. You tell them where you want lighting and they will suggest the placement and quantity of lights. I was weary of increasing the number of lights (because i originally thought i was being upsold); however the number was correct for the area i wanted lit. You buy the dimmer swtiches and he will install. There were a couple places where they had to drill to fish wire, but they patched it without any mess. With any contractor, i fell you have to tell them what you want and don't be afraid to ask questions. They will always try to get the job done in the quickest time possible and least amount of effort. For example, if you want the light switch to be in a certain spot and they say it's tough to get it there....well !@#% it; you're paying for the job so let them sweat it out and get it done to your satisfaction. They have long drill bits to fish wire, it just takes some effort. Overall i was satisfied with the service. Look at your bill and add it up yourself because he doesn't walk with a calculator. He charged me $79/light for the main floor.

Potlights in 3 rooms

Mr. Potlight was not only an unbeatable price, but he was efficient, clean and very polite in our home. He has the right tools to do the best job with VERY little mess. I was impressed with his professional layout of the ceiling lights and how he finished the job as he said. We've referred him to many friends and family and everyone is completely satisfied. Great company to hire and feel confident that the job is done right.

Potlights and Valance Lighting

John was fabulous! He told me ahead of time what valance lights he would need and told me he could have 30 potlights installed in 1 day. He was so nice as to do a layout of the number and placements of lights he would recommend as we had never done potlights before. Not only was he finished on time, but his team was efficient and polite. They cleaned up all the drywall debris and wiring and at the end of the project, took me through the house and showed me which lights were on which switched. I like that he is a licensed electrician and that he "highly recommended" an inspection so as not to void the warranty on our home. He even scheduled the inspector for us (this upcoming Wednesday). I would highly recommend John and Mr Potlight. The lights look wonderful and everything was done as promised and for a price that is very reasonable.

Installed 12 potlights

Mr. Potlight installed 8 potlights in my living room with 2 dimmers plug another 4 potlights else where in the house. They were trying their best not to leave even a single hole in the drywall, after trying to fish a wire for 40 minutes they had to open up a small hole in the drywall. Mr. Potlight told me ahead of time that they need to open up a small hole in the drywall, but what impresses me is that they try for 40 minutes before putting a hole in the drywall. Their effort is commendable. Overall, they delivered as promised, no mess, reasonable price, on-time performance. One of their guys even vacuum the area before leaving. I would recommend their to my friends.

Potlight

Upon searching the market to find a contractor for installing few pot lights in my living room, I ran into “Mr. Potlight” advertisement almost a month ago. John, the owner and technician, answered the phone himself. Although I realized that he was busy working for some other customers at the time, nonetheless he patiently answered my questions. He scheduled a visit to give me an estimate of project thereafter. Knowing that I had some scheduling conflicts that day, he accommodated me by not only changing the schedule, but showing up on-time. We sealed the deal and scheduled the installation for a Monday afternoon at 5:00 PM. The crew showed up at my driveway at 4:59 PM and finished the job in less than 2 hours (as previously promised). Crew was exceptionally professional and no mess was left behind. Hats off to the team.
Will I recommend this guy? Certainly!

Potlight installation

Couldn't find any reviews on Mr.Potlight (his name is John) here or on the Internet, but decided to call him up and get a estimate anyway. I left a message and John called back promptly. We met on Saturday to discuss my project. I found John to be friendly and very knowledgeable (he's licensed), and the quote I got is very reasonable (in the mid-range compared to several others I got). However, the biggest selling point for us was probably the fact that he can finish the job in just one day (we don't want to live with the mess for several days)! We're talking about 40 potlights here folks. Maybe I didn't talk to the right people, but other electricians/contractors I spoke with all said they'd need at least two days to complete the work.

On the day of the installation John & his crew arrived right on time. They are professional, courteous, hard-working and extremely efficient. They work fast but didn't rush through the job. Everything was done properly & carefully. They got the job done in one day as promised. They even cleaned up for us before leaving!

With John's help, we got what we want on-time and on-budget! Excellent electrician!
