I have a 'mostly' renovated kitchen.. few last bits of work to be done are - install over the stove microwave/fan, install dishwasher, replace ceiling fan with new one(already purchased) and install light over the sink. Not sure what kind of expense I should expect? I'm assuming it's an electrician I need? Is that the case?

You would require a licensed electrical contractor and an electrical permit with ESA for this. You can visit and click on the link "find electrical contractors" and you can see all your local options. Based on the work you listed, it would most likely be a 3-4 hour job for a qualified electrician to complete.

Yes. If you are not familiar with electrical then a licensed electrical contractor is required, not just electrician, along with an ESA notification/permit. Costs depend on a number of factors and would not feel comfortable providing pricing. All the best with your renovation.

Yes, this would need to be done by Electrical contractor and it would require ESA inspection. Since there is always little things that make job harder or easier, I would have to see it before giving you a fair quote. You can contact me if interested.

Hey Robin congratulations to have new kitchen,these are the just last touch up left.

For celling fan, microwave and light yes you do need Electrician to install them

For dishwasher yes you do need Electrician to install them but dish washer also need water for that you need plumber (look might be who have done the renovation he have provide you already)

For Electrician part if the connection are there you looking at $250 for all the electrical work if electrician need to ran new lines that depends how far is your panel, electrician need to be looked at.

I Hope i have answers you question feel free to ask if you have any other questions in your mind

Every job has uniqueness to it and must be assessed in person before pricing, I can only assume at this point it would be under $1,000.
