Recessed lighting can add a lot to your home, if the job is done well. Here are a few tips to help make the most out of recessed lighting and lighting fixture installation in Chesapeake, VA:
- Choose the right fixture: Know for sure whether you are going with a new construction fixture or a remodeling fixture. New construction fixtures are put in before a ceiling is installed, while remodeling fixtures are put in after. Choosing the wrong fixture could create a fire hazard.
- Prepare for the job: If you are going with a remodeling fixture, make sure it is at least an inch from ceiling joists so it can be securely and safely mounted. Any wire connectors should be installed before the fixture is put in place.
- Cut the hole safely: The best tools to use for cutting a hole for recessed lighting are hole or keyhole saws on power drills. Make sure you are close to the ceiling and standing in a safe position.
