Need To Cut Into Drywall For A New Overhead Light? Call A Drywall Expert And Painter First

If you have a room in your home that doesn't have any overhead lighting, and you want to put in a chandelier or an overhead lighting option, there are some professionals you want to call. You want it to look like the lighting fixture was always there, and not like you had some work done to the house. Here are the three professionals you want to get quotes from before you start the project, and so you know what to expect.

Get an Electrician

The electrician will look at where the current outlets are and figure out what is the easiest way to get a wire and electricity up to the ceiling. You will want to have them show you where they will have to cut into the drywall, so you can get an accurate estimate from the drywall professional, and schedule them to come in after.

Dry Wall Repair Expert

You have to find someone that specializes in patching drywall. Since you had to cut into the wall to make the changes, you want to be sure that you can't see where the cuts were made. If the room doesn't currently have knock down or another textured type of drywall, it could be very hard to do the patch job. Talk about transitioning to knock down or ask about other options.

Professional Painter

Not only does the drywall have to be done perfectly, but also the painting. Have a professional painter come in to make sure they do the best to paint over the drywall effectively so that you can't tell there was work done. The painter will recommend a specific type of high-quality paint, along with having the right tools to do the job properly.

This is the best way to get the best results if you don't want to see where the work was done. Plan on having the entire room painted so it all looks the same shade. 

There are a lot of advantages to having overhead lighting in a room, especially if you don't like to mess with lamps and cords. Make sure that you find a drywall expert and a professional painter to help you make the room look like it did before you had to cut into the wall and ceiling, or even better. This way you can improve your home value when you are finished with the project and the house will look great.
