Outdoor Christmas Light Installation
October 29, 2018
Ah, the joy of the Christmas season is beginning to rise in the air. It’s the time for preparations to begin, such as setting up lights on homes and offices, decorating trees and baking goodies with your family, and even decking out the streets to achieve that essence of Christmas spirit all around. While some people resort to just having a simple Christmas tree in their home, others level up their Christmas set up by putting up decorations both inside and outside their home, putting up lights and decor on garages, yards and roofs, and of course those giant festive lawn ornaments! What's better than driving down the street of your neighborhood during Christmas time and admiring the glow of the beautiful lights on people's homes? From an outside perspective, what gives life to our homes during the cold and snowy Christmas season are the lights.
Christmas lights vary in color and patterns, with some bulbs set up to be blinking and others set up as steady lights, etc. Christmas lights vary in their size, heaviness, wire set up, electricity capacity and more. Who knew it could be so technical?! Simple lights may be easy to install, but some lights (especially those that are intended for outdoor decoration) must be taken more seriously, since these types entail a more complex way of set up and installation. That’s why we have provided some insight for you to remember when setting up your outdoor Christmas light decorations this year.
Test For Equipment & Materials Safety
Yes, before you get too excited reading this and beginning throwing your Christmas lights onto your yard, trees, and roofs, it is important to make sure that your decor will not pose risk to your home or community. A major key that is required in preparation is to have the intended extension cords for outdoor usage.
While you’re at it, you should also check the light bulbs, check for any damaged cords, and do a run through inspection of your Christmas lights. You should know that damaged lights and cords can compromise not only your home's design, but your household’s safety as well. Also, not to undermine the safety part, but who wants to go through the trouble of installing lights just for them to not work and have to be taken back down and replaced?
Check For Surface & Rooflines
While the Christmas season may not be all snowy and cold for some parts of the country, it is still best to check on your rooflines, ceilings, and rooftops in order to make sure that you will be placing your lights on a steady and dependable surface. Remember that your Christmas lights will have electricity flowing through them, and you wouldn’t want to face any trouble regarding unsteady or risky placement after you’ve taken the time to placed your lights on your house. Check if there are any spots you should fix first around the outside of your property, along with any leaks or lost water that might eventually affect the light's performance or bring potential danger.
