What is the minimum sized (dollar amount) job that you will stay or come back after dark to do a site walk with the client to adjust and make sure they like everything? Thank you.

For every job I sell, I will do a nighttime adjustment. I even state that in my contract. It doesn't matter the size of the job, nor the complexity, the customer deserves the respect and attention of a nighttime viewing. Besides, this is when I pick up my check!

Good points I agree. Hope some others will participate.

When else are you going to adjust your lights if not at night?

Exactly.... we also sometimes make it a point to view the property at night BEFORE the project begins. This gives us a great sence of ambient light and where more light is needed. I can do this during the day as well as the next guy but I really do like to walk the properties at night using all pathways and entrances ect.

how can you install "Night" Lighting and not be there at night to unveil it and educate the customer on. Not to mention you need to be there after dark to tweak your beams.

Well said Chris. I totally agree.

I check every job at least once after all the lights are fired up. Sometimes on larger jobs I come back after everything is done. I try to get the customer to invite neighbors over to meet me if I can.

The most important time of any lighting job is the final hour. I fyou dont want to go back and adjust and change lenses and lamps aropund then you shouldnt do lighting.
