This was my first time working with the crew at TKG Electric. They did a lighting upgrade and also installation of new fixtures at our new to us (18-year old) home we were renovating. TKG was the company our contractor used frequently and trusted—and we trusted our contractor so were hopeful from the start.
Our hopes were exceeded.
Kitan and the crew walked through our home with us at the very start making suggestions for lighting additions, changes, and improvements, including new types of dimmers and remotes. They gave us their best advice on where we should spend money, and where we could save money. They ensured they met the contractor’s schedule to avoid delays and were very proactive with all their work.
During the job we ran into two challenges that seemed pretty significant at the time, but in looking back at how quickly they developed solutions and told us calmly how the solutions would give us an even better end result, we were thankful. One challenge was that the one-piece quartz granite had a hole cut out for a telephone hook-up which we did not want. TKG suggested we instead add an overhead lighting remote in the hole which suited us perfectly.
The other challenge was a bit more significant. After the electricians wired for undermount lighting, through some of our own communication errors, the cupboard installers routered twice the number of holes we needed for lights. The electricians quickly told us they would simply double the lights and make it all work while still assuring me it would be safe and not break our budget. The result was even better than we could have imagined.
We were thrilled with the care they took hanging our own purchased light fixtures, including one from an 18-foot ceiling and another multi-tear-dropped four-foot-long fixture over a dining room table. These guys even knew when to make cool lights warm in our dressing room, and warm lights cool in our laundry room.
It was an excellent experience working with these folks, and we are so incredibly happy with the results. The fact that they were also polite, respectful, and friendly was simply an added benefit to their skill and their wonderful contribution to how lighting could enhance how we use our home.
