“This was a great experience! I have wanted to have this done for several years, but dreaded the mess that I believed would be associated with it. I found System 1 on Angies’s List & went with them because of their great reviews.
Richard, one of the owners of this family business, came out right on time to do a walk-through to give me details on what the process would be, & he made suggestions as to how many recessed lights should be placed & where. Since I’m not a fan of artificial lighting, we discussed how many dimmers should be placed. Richard also advised me as to what items should be removed from each room, but I was so surprised at how much didn’t need to be! That was a huge relief to me, as it was a lot less work than I had assumed there would be.
On the first day, the crew arrived exactly on time. They immediately began covering the house with plastic when I was leaving for work at 8:30. By 4:15, they called to let me know the job was done! The ceiling had been scraped, plastered, & all of the lights had been installed. I left work a little early to check the job & was so thrilled with what I saw! The electrician phoned me 4 times during the day to discuss placement of the lights with relationship to the dimmers. Due to joists in the ceiling where he had planned on running several of the lights, the plan had to be altered a bit, but it came out perfect, if not better than originally planned. I felt so confident with the 2 electricians that I plan to use them in the future for independent work as needed.
The plan was for the painters to come 4 days later in order to give the plaster time to dry, & once again, they arrived exactly on time. It took the whole day for them to paint the ceilings & the 2 walls, but it came out beautiful. We discussed color & they went to a local paint store to have the correct paint color made up.
With respect to the price of the whole job, I’m not sure what I was expecting, but all in all it was worth every penny. I think the painting cost a bit more than my own painter would have cost, and I had the option of using whomever I wanted, but I went with Richard’s painter so that the job would maintain the flow & be completed on time. No regrets there.
The whole job was a lot less messy than I anticipated. Most of the clean up was after the painters finished, as they had a few very small areas that needed to be scraped of the leftover acoustic material in the corners, etc. They even offered to vacuum for me!
Every one of the guys who worked on this job was just wonderful. They were all so friendly & thoughtful.
I can’t recommend System 1 enough! This company was fantastic!”
