sound like the switch is upside down and your electrician was a boob !  It is either the bulbs or the dimmer, you will have to identify which is the problem by experimenting.  Also most cfl bulbs even though dimmable if labeled so do ot have much of a low end.  try LED lamps or incandescent, but do not exceed the rating of the fixture or type of lamp rated for the fixture.
