Chandelier Installations

Chandelier Installations Services Glenview

Current Electrical Contractors can arrange to hang any chandelier as long as we have the information we need and to make this happen.

Before Each Chandelier Installation

Each chandelier is made differently are requires different planning. Here are the questions our electrician near Lake Forest will need to answer before each installation:

  • How high is the ceiling?
  • How heavy is the chandelier?
  • How complex is the chandelier and how long it will take to dress?
  • Is special equipment needed to get to the ceiling? Scaffolding? Extra tall ladder? Man lift?
  • Are we moving the chandelier from one location to another?
  • If the chandelier is heavy does the ceiling electrical box have enough backing to hold the weight of the chandelier?

Simple Chandelier Installations

Some chandelier installations are quite simple and can be done by one or two electricians in a very short amount of time. Our electricians near Lake Forest will first hang the chandelier from the ceiling and then dress the fixture. Dressing the chandelier includes hanging all of the crystal or metal items that make chandelier attractive. Dressing a chandelier can take many hours if it is intricate.

Heavy Chandelier Installations

Heavier chandeliers require proper backing to hold the weight of the fixture. In a situation where Current Electrical Contractors has wired the home in consideration of the chandelier, we would ensure the appropriate backing was installed to support the weight. If our electricians near Lake Forest did not install the existing electrical connection, we will inspect and upgrade if needed.

Chandelier Relocation

If we are taking a chandelier down to take it to another location and install it our electricians near Lake Forest need to know:

  • The chandelier weight
  • The chandelier height and circumference
  • How long it will take to undress the chandelier if it is complex

Smaller chandeliers will fit in a wardrobe box that movers use to transport hanging clothes. Wardrobe boxes come in a variety of sizes. They also have a metal bar that rests on the sides of the box that we can safely wire the chandelier to in order to transport. We will either carry or wheel the box to the new location.

Larger chandeliers require more planning. Our electricians near Lake Forest will partner with a moving company that will build a wooden box the appropriate size. We will disconnect the electrical connections and anchors from the ceiling and hand it off to the movers. They then are responsible for transportation. We meet them at the new location and take it from them there.
