If the job for your house or building requires remodeling then you must hand the plan to your electrician from the hands of your designer and architect. The plan that you will give should show the locations of the outlets and switches. It must also have a label of fluorescent or incandescent to them. These are already ready before you have been given the chance to pick the light fixtures, thus, your electrician will need this.


Then, ask your electrician on when he or she will need these fixtures, then you can start buying for the fixtures that you want but do not immediately buy one, you just have to put it on a list and make sure to include the model number and the name of the manufacturer and refer your list to your electrician if he or she approves of it.

The most advantageous part of this is that your electrician will assume the responsibility for the warranty of the product, the defective products, the missing parts and the breakage.

You do not need to worry about this because their work also reflects their name and license and they are doing a really good job to keep it this way.
