Step 2: Account for Fixtures and Wiring

Existing ceiling fixtures need to be removed by a licensed electrician before starting and reinstalled at completion. Be sure to consult an electrician on items such as recessed lighting and fans that may require relocation or retrofit mounting. Also ask the electrician to relocate unprotected attic wiring that could be hit with an over-driven fastener. Running wiring on top of existing ceiling joists instead of on the side will help keep it out of harm’s way.
