In life, we tend to do many things we have no business doing. There are trained experts who can help us with everything under the sun, so we might as well leverage them from time to time. When hanging your Christmas lights for the holidays, just because you can do it yourself doesn’t mean you should. Not only could it look a lot nicer, but it could also be a whole lot safer. Here’s what you need to know.
When You Should Call in the Experts
There are tons of holiday light displays that you can handle yourself. For instance, if you’re decorating your smaller-sized Christmas tree or hanging lights around your window or railing. But, there are many instances where it would be a good idea to get support. For example, if you’re hanging lights along the edges of your roof outside your home. It’s super dangerous to climb a ladder, especially in the cold. So, if your house is taller than you, you could probably use some help.
Beyond that, if you’re planning on hanging a complex light display and are unsure what the power and cord requirements might be to do it safely. This can damage your home’s electrical system in a big way if done dangerously. Another reason you might want to hire someone is if you’re hanging lights on outdoor trees. In the Bow Valley, our evergreen trees tend to tower pretty high. So, rather than climbing a ladder (or a tree) in freezing temperatures and risking a slip, call for help.
And, of course, if you’re hanging industrial lights, you should hire a professional.
The Benefits of Professional Light Installation
While the benefits of hiring a light-installation professional are pretty straightforward, you may not know that they do far more than just slapping them up for you. They’ll ensure all lights are functional, help you map out the lights and determine how many you need, position them accordingly with power sources and hide ugly extension cords, and help you out with maintenance if anything happens and removal when the holiday season is over. Doesn’t that sound nice?
