Install Christmas lights without stress this year

Save time and aggravation by hiring a local decorator to adorn your home this holiday

There’s nothing like the sight of a beautifully-decorated home with dazzling lights to signal the arrival of the holidays. But, nothing can be more aggravating than that annual chore of hanging the lights, wrestling that old ladder and untangling strand after strand of lights.

If you’re like me, it seems holiday stress tends to rise with over-commitments, over-spending, over-eating, and over-indulging – all done with the hopes of making everything perfect and memorable.  That’s why I recommend letting someone else the climb the ladder, negotiate the roof, handle the electrical, and do the lighting and decorating – so you can achieve a happier and safer holiday season.

Tim Scott, lighting manager for Christmas Décor of Reno sums it up this way, “There are two unspoken rules to hanging lights and decorating. One, whenever you decide to put up the decorations, the weather will turn bad. Two, it will always take longer than you thought.”

“That’s where we come in,” says Tim. “When you recruit help for the lighting and decorating, you know it will be done with attention to every detail because the installation is done to your personal specifications. We’re not done until you’re a smiling Christmas Elf yourself!” he chuckles.

Christmas Decor - Caughin RanchWhen hiring a lighting company like Christmas Decor (managed by Signature Landscapes), you should always check to ensure the company is fully insured and expertly trained. And by trained, a friendly uniformed crew should really understand what it takes to get on your roof, not break a tile or damage the delicate wood fascia, and most importantly how to navigate all types of ladders. Safety is king when it comes to hanging Christmas lights.

On the lighter side, Tim says he’s already received calls for lights and overwhelming requests are for the newer LED lights. “These lights are the strongest and most durable lights you can get and their power savings are 1/100th the energy of larger, traditional bulbs. When you consider how long these thousands of bulbs are powered on each night you will quickly notice the effect of the more efficient LEDs in your NV Energy bill. Plus with the newer technology the bulbs now have that warm glow versus that stark bright neon look from earlier LED products.”

In addition to the installation of your décor, you’ll want to make sure you’re to receive proactive drive-by maintenance, and of course, prompt take-down. Some companies, like Christmas Décor, will store your materials during the off season too.

Installation from start to finish usually takes about 6 hours. This includes wrapping the trees and hanging garland. Some of the larger properties can take much longer depending on the depth of their lighting and decor, so plan ahead and get on the install schedule early.

“Our clients want an impeccably-decorated home,” said Tim.  “Whether entertaining guests, lighting the family home, or creating a warm and welcome environment for business customers, people are discovering that using the services of a professional really lowers stress levels for the holidays.”
