Holiday lights make a festive seasonal addition to the exterior of your home. Professional design and installation services take the time, labor and risk out of the project, leaving you free to enjoy the magic of your holiday decorations.

Do I Need Professional Holiday Light Installation?

Your family and neighbors will undoubtedly enjoy your holiday light display, but the process of installing them can be daunting and dangerous. If you have a large scale installation, are struggling with a design scheme for your lights, or have difficulty accessing hanging locations, hiring a professional installer can provide an efficient solution to your lighting issues.

What are the Benefits of Holiday Light Installations?

Holiday light installers are equipped to place various types of lights in areas that are difficult to access, can ensure that electrical connections are made safely, and affix lights and cords with minimal damage to your home. Further, many installers offer additional services and can supply you with commercial-quality lights that are more durable than common residential models.

How Much Holiday Lighting Do I Need Installed?

The scale of your lighting installation depends largely on the size of your home and the scope of the design. You may choose to have the architectural elements of your house outlined with lights or incorporate outdoor structures and trees as well

What Type of Holiday Light Installation Services Exist?

Holiday light installers hang lights in residential, commercial, and public settings, whether on buildings and structures or on trees and landscape features. Many provide design, maintenance, removal, and storage services as well, and may also offer installation of other seasonal decorations.

How Long Does It Take to Install Holiday Lights?

Many residential installations of holiday lights can be completed with a small crew in less than one day. Large or elaborate displays may require a bigger crew or a few days to complete. Your installer can evaluate your site to estimate the time needed for the job.

What Materials are Needed to Install Holiday Lights?

Your installer may use wire, adhesive, hooks, staples, clamps, nails, and plastic ties to hang lights, depending on their location. Ladders or a lift may be needed to access installation sites, with extension cords, timers, and controllers used to power and regulate your lights.

Do Holiday Light Installations Have any Hidden Charges?

Since the features and requirements of most holiday light installations are obvious, the project rarely produces surprise expenses, though weather conditions and difficulty accessing installation sites may cause delays or affect the use of some equipment. Also, be sure to address with your installer whether you must purchase or rent lights from their company, and if your contract includes maintenance and other services or if they are available at additional cost.

How Much Does Holiday Light Installation Cost?

Holiday light installations can be understated or elaborate, ranging in price from $133 to $578 across the country. Your installer and our Holiday Light Installation Price Guide can help you determine how the size, design, accessibility, and location of your display will influence the cost of your project.
