6 Questions For Outdoor Lighting Installer

Posted by San Diego Landscaper on Wednesday, 8 November , 2017
outdoor lights

In a recent entry, we talked in-depth about why it makes sense to leverage the skills and talents of a professional when it comes to installing outdoor lighting to accentuate your property.

While there are a variety of cheaper fixtures at your local retail store, the old adage of “you get what you pay for” definitely comes into play.

In this issue, we’ll share tips for what to ask a professional lighting installer to make sure you’re hiring the right provider.

Why should I add outdoor lighting to my property?

There’s little doubt that, when done correctly, outdoor lighting can really boost your property’s curb appeal.

Beyond aesthetics, outdoor lighting also helps to discourage potential home burglaries and makes it easier for family members and guests to move around safely outdoors at night.

What should I ask a professional outdoor lighting installer?

It’s crucial that all electrical work associated with your outdoor lighting be done by a professional to ensure any potential hazards are addressed. It’s also important when considering a design to make sure that entryways, decks, and patios are lighted.

When selecting a professional outdoor lighting provider, be sure to ask about:

  1. Type of fixtures that will be installed and where they got their supply (if their answer is ‘one of the big chain stores’, you probably want to go with another provider);
  2. Type of warranty that comes with the job (remember, this is an investment in your home that should work for years);
  3. Whether or not they’re insured (if they can’t provide you with proof of insurance, move on to the next provider);
  4. The ability to add-onto the system after it’s been installed (the entire project should be able to be completed in stages);
  5. Continued maintenance of the system after it’s been installed; and
  6. Opportunities to conserve energy.

    Juniper Landscape Company has been fantastic. Before them, we ran through three or four other lawn and landscape maintenance companies who did spotty and sometimes outright poor work, were not always reliable and who ended up creating problems for us in a variety of ways. That experience led us to subscribe to Angie's List... Read More
