Lightbulb How much does it cost to install a chandelier?

Hi all,

I am planning to install a large, crystal chandelier in my new home. Would you happen to know how much it will cost to hire an electrician to install it? What is the going rate in Edmonton? Any warranties on their work?

If you have installed one before and can refer an electrician, it would be great!

Merry X'mas!

Are you replacing one chandelier with another?

No, i'm not replacing the chandelier. It will be for the new house and we will not be using the standard lights from the builder. We will buy the chandelier seperately and just need an electrician to install it.

You may need to have some other work done to reinforce the ceiling if the chandelier is large enough.

Good point. I know someone who had their chandelier crash down and damage their hardwood floor. (In a new house so the builder took care of all the repairs.)

Discuss this with your builder first. Generally speaking, the builder will install any type of light fixture, although he may well charge a 'change order' for deviating from 'spec'. Etownboarder is correct, extra reinforcement in the ceiling will be required if the proposed chandelier is of a substantial weight.
