What are some people thinking?


I was called in recently to replace a couple of large fluorescent ceiling lights. When I took the old fittings down, I found they'd been put up with ordinary screws, just screwed into the plaster of the ceiling. These lights were installed by a "professional". Five-foot fluorescent lights are heavy; how on earth did they think the lights would stay up?

My advice? If you're having ceiling lights put up, ask the installer how they're being secured. A good tradesman will be happy to answer your questions.
