Should you do outdoor lighting yourself?

Is outdoor lighting really that complicated? Is it one of those things you should do yourself? Well, in deciding what things you should really do yourself, there are a couple scenarios to look at.

1)      Going to a home store to purchase and install yourself

2)      Doing internet research to purchase and install yourself

3)      Having someone do it for you

With option 1, here are the pros and cons. You’ll certainly get a better price. On the flip side, you could be standing in the aisle for a long time reading boxes and still make an uninformed choice. Then, you have to do the installation yourself.

With option 2, here are the pros and cons. The research will likely be easier and you might get better information online. Online, you can see reviews from other real people instead of just reading the marketing literature and getting the opinion or “expertise” from one sales rep who may or may not make a commission on your purchase. Then, you still have to do the installation yourself.

With option 3, you will benefit from the years of experience of the lighting designer and can enjoy a glass of wine while they work. Any way you look at it, you’ll have a better product, someone to call with questions and likely both a warranty and a service plan.

But, there can be one more option. This option is “do it yourself with our help”. In this option, you can do the research and purchase online but have the expert come out and install the product. Or, you can ask the expert what to buy and have them install it for you. This is often an unadvertised option but can really be the best.

Installing outdoor lighting is difficult, requires lots of knowledge, and can be fraught with perils if not done correctly including the risk of fire, the risk of cutting important power and other lines, and many other perils. Call an expert and ask them if they have an option 4. It could be the very best option.

C9’s look good throughout the year

We have this adorable Italian Restaurant in town. It’s in a shopping center with a grocery store so it’s not the normal place you would look for a quaint, delicious little Italian Restaurant. But, they’ve done such a great job decorating the front patio of the store that it seems to greet you and say hello every time you go to the grocery store. They have just 3 simple items that they’ve used to decorate – lattice for a little privacy, greenery wound around, and c9 lighting. They keep this up 52 weeks/year and you’d never think the lights are just for the holidays.

The image you see here is actually from a commercial job we did in another grocery store shopping center but you can see the wonderful romantic and welcoming effect.

What would you say if I told you these 3 things?

  1. Do not go up to your attic for boxes of outdoor Christmas decorations
  2. Burn your ladder
  3. Under no circumstances will you ever again have to buy a replacement bulb

You probably wouldn’t believe me unless you saw a genie bottle in my hand. Well, I can’t promise this for your indoor Christmas decorations but I can absolutely promise it for your Outdoor Christmas decorating.

Our Christmas Lighting package really does cover absolutely everything for your outdoor holiday lighting and decorations.

We order.

We install.

We service.

We take down.

We store.

We bring it back to you next year.

You honestly don’t have to do a thing. Now you’re probably wondering how we can promise that you’ll never again have to purchase a replacement bulb? Where there are 2 reasons. First, all of our outdoor lighting products are LED. LED bulbs are not only energy efficient but the bulbs last 30,000 – 50,000 hours. And if for some strange reason a bulb did go out, you call us and we come out just to fix that bulb.

I just got done celebrating the Thanksgiving holiday with my family. The hostess always spends all her time cooking that she barely gets to enjoy the celebration. Allow us to do your outdoor lighting so you have that time to spend with your family.

Give us a ring right away so we can come out and install your holiday lighting.
