Illuminating. Twinkling. Festive. Inviting. Outdoor lights can add more magic to the holiday season. And, now is the time to plan for your outdoor holiday lighting display. Hiring a professional to install your lights is a smart investment. It can save you time and will ensure a beautiful, functional display of holiday fun and cheer.
Convenience In A Smart Investment
The emergence of professional holiday light installation has afforded previously limited homeowners the opportunity to enjoy seasonal outdoor lighting. Past limitations may have involved:
- physical ability
- tools, including access to ladders, clips and satisfactory string lights
- or simply patience (See below)
Professional holiday light installers are trained and experienced. They know the equipment and tools, and have knowledge of which string lights will work best where. Many professional holiday light installers offer sourcing and purchasing-direct options for their customers, allowing the owners to keep their lights for use in successive years.
Are you one who likes to change it up from year to year? Professional lighting installation companies generally own various lighting products and displays they can use on your home for just the season, allowing you to opt for something new the next season. These professionals have all the tools – including safe, quality extension cords – needed to complete the job quickly and safely. They have the training, along with the accompanying patience, to get the lights up and glowing, usually within a couple of hours if no Clark Griswold design is at play (though that is an option many can pull off, too, if desired!).
Hiring a Christmas Light Installation Company
When hiring a professional to install holiday lights, take a look at their business ahead of time. Many companies provide holiday lighting installation as a seasonal component of a larger business. They often do landscaping, gutter and window cleaning, pressure washing, or the like, year round. Does your potential pro have recommendations from previous clients? Do they make available pictures of previous holiday lighting work? Are they licensed to conduct work in your area? Have they earned reputable awards or certifications? CLIPA is a national Christmas light installer certification program. Hiring a professional who has earned membership in CLIPA provides the homeowner with greater peace of mind. Attainment of the certification requires testing and training; a proven history of experience; proof of commercial liability insurance; and vetted letters of recommendation.
Holiday Trends and Inspiration
The options available for outdoor holiday lighting have grown exponentially over the years. What we grew up with might have simply involved large, colorful bulbs in primary colors. These types of lights are still around for all of us retro-loving folks; but, today we can also find LED lights in a rainbow of colors and pre-planned color schemes, including blues and silvers, gold and red, color-switching and blinking options and more. A popular modern trend is all-white lighting and, again thanks to LED technology, you can pick the warmth of your white, i.e., warm cozy cream, cool icy white, nearly-blue white, etc.
