There is no “set” answer to this question. The cost of our service depends on several things, including the number of light strings you’d like to hang, level of danger and how long it will take to put your display together. Generally, our prices range from as little as $100 to as high as $500 or more for larger homes. (Commercial, Large estates, and groundwork are not included in that range)
Thanks to modern mapping/Internet technology we can often times find a picture (or street view) of your home. We will then consult with you on what type of display you desire, providing the “best bang for your buck” display, and allow for additional input. We communicate mostly via email to document what is requested including what type of lights, and the cost of installation. An important fact to remember is that we’ll work within most any budget, as our success is based solely on the happiness of our customers. If the cost is acceptable, we’ll schedule a time to take care of the work.
After years of experience, we've learned that there are the right lights to buy that meet and exceed home owner's expectations, and they are the wrong light that causes home owners to have buyer remorse with feelings of regret and frustration. We've developed a preferred list of lights that we now carry in stock to make your holiday light experience most pleasurable, these lights are on our preferred list because they look the best, are energy conscious, most reliable, and are the most all around cost effective choice. If you buy new lights other than our preferred list, installation rates may increase. Visit our Commercial vs Box Sets page for more info.
We know that the Holiday season for most people starts on Thanksgiving. It’s common for most of our customers to turn their lights on black Friday. Unfortunately there are only so many hours in a day, so we try to get a head start. We begin installing November 1st (or earlier), and schedule based on proximity (to keep our cost low we try to maximize our install time and minimize our drive time). Our services will generally cost less if we’re able to perform the work outside the holiday rush.
Yes. Taking down the displays is part of our service, and it’s included in the quote we provide for you before we start work. We begin taking lights down on January 2nd and strive to have them all removed by mid January. We do not “lease” lights, they are yours to keep. Store them in a dry location ready for installation next year.
100%. We are interested in building long-lasting customer relationships, and will gladly provide references per your request. There are things that can happen to lights for a variety of reasons, including wind, rain and other unforeseen circumstances. If this occurs, our professional staff will return to troubleshoot whatever problem exists quickly and efficiently. Unfortunately light bulbs are designed to burn out, we guarantee that all light bulbs are operational before we leave. To maintain lower prices burnt out bulbs (fewer than 5 bulbs) are not included in the guarantee.
You likely found us by referral, which to us means we did a good enough job that someone would stake their reputation to refer us. We pride ourselves on our customer service, quality work and affordable pricing. Our professional team will make sure that your display is tasteful, decorative and properly maintained.
With the advancements of technology LED lights, the production cost have come down on Christmas LED lights. While they use much less energy than traditional Christmas lights, the cost of each bulb is still almost 10 times as expensive. One reason customers choose to use LED bulbs is because they are rated to last 50,000 hours, however they are still subject to corrosion and may need to be replaced even after only one season of being installed.
LED bulbs come in three temperatures, cool, warm, and pure. Many people don't chose LED because they don't like the "blue" look. That's ok, there's two other options that are less blue. Although LED can come close to emulating the look of incandescent, we feel it is missing the glow that comes with incandescent. We have been told by customers that LED's looks more like lasers and less like lights.
Balancing the addition up-front cost and energy costs between LED and Incandescent we believe they equalize each other. (Except for commercial building where the lights run for much longer). We will continue to watch as the technology improve and continue to consult with you on your preference.
Ultimately, we believe what you chose is simply a matter of choice. What look do you prefer?
