Christmas Lights

We also offer light removal and will package your holiday decorations for you to store until next year.

The details:

  • This is a 1X service (Installation: October – December & Takedown: January)

Thank you for the opportunity to provide you with an estimate for your Christmas Lights! If you have received quotes from other installers We are sure you noticed that there are several different options with the quality of materials used, installation method and ongoing maintenance once your lights are installed. We have highlighted our installation process and materials below to help you understand all aspects that should go into the installation process. Because the materials are custom fit to your home, everything used during the installation is yours to keep! No need to pay for materials again next season. The only cost will be for the labor to install and remove your lights.

We Use Commercial Grade Materials

Christmaslights Thumb1

1.
We use only high quality, commercial-grade materials for all our installations. Trained installers will measure your home and cut the exact amount of socket wire from a 1000ft roll so each section fits your home perfectly!

2.
Also, we use solid wire between the light section so you only have bulbs (and sockets) exactly where you want them. Some companies don’t do this. Instead, they simply remove the bulbs and place tape over the sockets. Not only does this look very sloppy but it’s very unsafe and when it rains could very easily spark and start a fire.

3.
All connections between socket wire and solid wire are made with manufacturer recommended plugs to ensure safe and durable operation each season.

4.
We use plastic clips to safely secure the lights to your roofline and gutters.

Please note: These clips work for nearly all installations. However, if you have leaf screens over your gutters, heavy-duty shingles, or clay tile roof, another installation process may be needed.

5.
Hot glue is the best way to install your lights around the front porch and windows where plastic clips cannot be used. The glue will hold the lights securely throughout the holiday season but allows for easy removal in January.

6.
Commercial grade lawn stakes are used along walkways and flowerbeds. These special stakes hold the socket securely in place so the bulb is pointed straight up creating a very neat, professional appearance all season long.

7.
Your installation also includes a timer with a photo-cell. This unit will allow you to easily set your lights to come on from dusk to dawn or come on at dusk then turn off after 2, 4, 6, or 8 hours.

The most critical part (and the only part you and your holiday guest will notice) of the overall job is the selection of actual bulb size and type. We only use commercial grade C9 LED bulbs during new installations. LEDs last longer and use less energy than traditional incandescent lights (LED bulbs only use .45 watts versus 7-10 watts for incandescent bulbs. 1 regular incandescent bulb uses the same power as 18 LED bulbs). This, most importantly, allows you to enjoy your lights all season long with minimal impact on your electric bill. The lower power consumption also means more Christmas lights can be connected on a single circuit without overloading the outlet. This allows us to typically only need a single power supply wire resulting in a much cleaner overall installation appearance. Our LED bulbs are made of shatter-resistant plastic instead of glass like the incandescent bulbs, making them less prone to breakage during installation and storage.

LED bulbs have come a long way! They use to only be available in a blue-ish white color. However, they are now also available in a Kelvin rating of 3000 which is very close to the traditional incandescent Christmas light bulb. So, if you're looking for a traditional lighting design this Christmas and want to save on energy, LED bulbs are the way to go.

After installation, should your lights come unclipped, a bulb goes out, etc; we are available to stop by and do the needed repairs at no additional cost.

Box

10.
We begin taking down the lights, the second week of January (billed separately from your installation cost). During the takedown, we will use a ladder to remove your lights by hand (some companies stand on the ground and pull on the socket wire to rip your lights off your home, resulting in broken clips, bulbs, and damaged socket wire). Each section is labeled during removal to help installation go as quickly as possible the following season. We then package all the wire, clips, timer, etc in a box with our label on top and leave on your front porch for you to store until next season. Reminder, all the materials are yours to keep since they are custom fit to your home. You will only need to pay for installation and takedown labor next year.
