Before you quote a price check the price of the components.

I put in $7 Halo boxes and then needed $15 trims. A different brand was the same price for boxes, but the trims were only $6.

$10 difference on $75 charge is a lot.

Thanks for the replies... I mostly use Progress . My cost for can, standard baffle trim and bulb is about$24.00 I have been hearing locally price ranging from $50 to $100 . I was curious what other EC' were getting for this item.

Heatwave,

I have seen prices from tract builders of between 125-150 per fixture. I know that the EC is not getting that price.

PS where are you in MD? email me.
