Well it is that time of year – the holiday season which means decorating your home for whatever holiday you celebrate or maybe a little something for everyone. A lot of families have become true melting pots and you would like to represent them in the décor.
The inside of the home should be decorated by the family. You most likely you have decorative items that you have collective over the years and add some new ones.
When it comes to the outside of your home you need someone that really knows what they are doing and the majority of people hire a pro. This of course comes with a price; however it can eliminate a lot of headaches and potential dangers that come with doing it yourself.
Here are a few tips on what questions to ask and what to look for when hiring a light-hanging pro.
Be careful of “fly by night guys”. Make sure the light hangers you use have a business license and insurance before hiring.
Pricing can be tricky. It can be as low as a few hundred dollars for a small home and could be as high as several thousands for a big custom homes with major displays. Installers also have packages in different price ranges. Most people like a lease arrangement where the operator maintains ownership of the lights.
Using the lights that belong to the light hanger means that these lights have been maintained and fixed by the light hanging means that the company can offer a warranty. These people know what power supplies and cords to use.
Ask about LED lights. They are very energy efficient and popular.
