Tis’ the season to deck the halls and ditch the stress when it comes to decorating outdoor displays and implementing festive lighting! How many hours have you spent on your living room floor, detangling lights, cursing the holiday spirit, plugging in strands to no avail and replacing bulbs? Probably more than you care to admit. We know. We’ve all been there. By hiring a Christmas lighting and décor contractor, you will save a lot of time and frustration.
There are a few things you should consider before choosing a Christmas lighting and décor contractor. You want to be able to count on them to get the job done right. Right?
Before marking this tedious task off your Christmas to-do list, think about which elements of a contractor are important to you. Is it a high level of service? Professionalism? Probably in part the result of beautiful displays. Here are a couple of reasons why hiring a professional Christmas lighting and décor contractor is worth the investment.
Services & Professionalism:
All I want for Christmas is NO-STRESS!
It’s important to research the services included and choose a company that best fits your needs before signing a contract. A few things to consider are installation processes, professionalism, experience, and reputation. The installation process is important and you’ll be happier choosing a company that walks the property and has the certified training and knowledge. Finding a company that also services your display throughout the season should make them a prime candidate.
A professional contractor that has the experience and knows what works and what doesn’t will ensure your landscape looks festive and bright throughout the season. They will provide high-quality products and on-site service throughout the season in case those pesky squirrels or strong winds create an issue. Make sure to ask what their processes are for install and takedown.
Another good thing to keep in mind is reviews. How did you hear of this company? Finding a contractor that has a good reputation is key. Do your research and ask family and friends who they use, check the company’s website and reviews beforehand, and you’ll likely have a much better experience and a memorable Christmas. A professional contractor is going to take the time to walk you through the process from start to finish and leave you stress free for the holidays!
You better watch out; you better not fall…
Safety plays a big role when it comes to hanging Christmas lights. Living in Colorado, we all know how quickly Mother Nature can change her mind and take a beautiful sunny morning and transform it into a blustery gale of snowy chaos. With strong winds, and slippery and dangerous weather conditions, hire professionals who have been trained and certified installing lights. This way they’ll keep you off the ladders and out of the emergency room.
Choose a company that has liability insurance and follows an industry standard. Professionals should have extensive training on design methods and techniques to understand comprehensive electrical instructions and installation processes. Having a well-educated crew on your property ensures you can trust and rely on your contractor.
Jingle Bill...Jingle Bill...keep it low all holiday
When hiring a lighting expert, you ensure your Christmas light display will outshine the rest. Installing high-quality products that are energy saving and weatherproof provides extra brightness and keeps that electrical bill down.
Your professional contractor will help you choose and install safe, commercial-grade electrical components such as timers. Timers allow the lights to be on a specific amount time at the homeowner’s discretion and prevents the lights from disturbing your neighbors or running up that electrical bill all day long. Leave it to the professionals when it comes to hanging Christmas lights this year!
