In midst of renovation, we are adding some light fixtures, outlets and switches. Wondering what people think a reasonable price per point is (I"m not sure I even understand what constitutes a point, so clarification on that welcome too). We are being quoted $500 per point, whch seems high to me.
am a General contractor & my electrician normally charge around 150 to about 200 per point, but 500 per point sounds a little high to me, I would get a few more quotes from other mompanies. Heres my electricians E-mail Ricpowerman@gmail.com If you need someone to give you some insight on pricing. He can answer any question you may have. Good luck

I agree with Green. My electricians charge the same 150-200. Try this company: Munetz Electrical Contracting Corp. Thomas Munetz. Licensed & Insured. 718-416-2686. Munetz is on a job for one of my customers now and all of my customers like him.

$500 per point is ridiculous. A "point" is generally where the wiring meets the outside world, like outlets, switches, overhead lights.

You should get an overall price for your entire scope of work rather than on a point by point basis which may be appropriate for work of limited scope and change orders. Running 10 lights in a row in a single room is a lot different than running 10 lights in 10 different rooms. Point by point is a crude pricing method for a comprehensive electrical project. Also, keep in mind that electrical work often requires drywall work and painting at a minimum.
