Here are a few questions we often receive from customers. If you have other questions or would like to request a free estimate, please contact us:

How much does holiday lighting cost?

Packages typically start around $600 and can go up to any amount depending on the size and scope of the project. A budget is very helpful when requesting an estimate to keep options within reason.

What is the value?

It’s priceless.  There are thousands of emergency room visits each holiday season from DIY decorators. Be safe this year and experience a hassle-free Holiday installation. Be sure to spend more time with your family and let us worry about untangling the lights.

What am I paying for?

Design, customization, installation, service, take-down and storage. Products are not sold or owned by the client. We service, replace and update materials as necessary.

  3. INSTALL:
    1. Installations occur in phases beginning as early as October 1st.

    4. When you’re ready to turn your lights off, simply unplug the extension cords from your timer(s), but leave your timer plugged into the outlet.

We have a variety of colors available, including but not limited to: Warm White, Winter White, Red, Green, Pink, Blue, Amber, Purple and Orange.

What can you light or decorate at my home or business?

Structures including roof, fascia, ridges, windows, entrances, poles, posts, etc. Landscaping elements such as trees, shrubs, pathways, etc.

What types of wraps do you offer for trees and shrubs?

Branch, canopy and hybrid wraps are available.

How do my lights turn on?

In most situations, a timer will be set to the times you prefer so you never have to worry about turning your lights on or off. Typical timeframe is 4 p.m. to midnight.

What if I want to make changes next year?

No problem! Just let us know in advance so we can update your package. Color swaps are typically free of charge, but other changes may increase or decrease your pricing.
