Guidelines help homeowners pick outdoor lighting pros or DIY

November 13, 2023

The holiday season is fast approaching. Now is the time, according to outdoor holiday lighting expert Mike Gray of Christmas Decor by G.M.G. Inc. in Lewes, for homeowners to decide whether to tackle outdoor holiday lighting chores themselves or turn the job over to the professionals.

"There are a lot of factors that should go into this decision," said Gray. "Successful outdoor holiday lighting installations require a variety of skill sets ranging from design expertise and electrical knowledge to ladder safety and safe storage planning. When you consider how diverse these requirements are, it's not surprising that for convenience, safety and reliable, eye-catching results, home and business owners are increasingly turning this annual chore over to professional outdoor holiday lighting experts."

Gray advises property owners who are considering using a professional to look first for a company that offers an end-to-end lighting solution that includes design, installation, maintenance, takedown and storage. Then, confirm that the company's decorators are trained to execute professional-grade lighting displays on high roofs and ladders, and in tricky situations, without damage to moldings, roofing and architectural elements.

As a member of the Christmas Decor franchise network, Christmas Decor by G.M.G. Inc. meets all of these standards and more, said Gray. "Our decorators are scheduling appointments for the 2023 holiday season now. If using a holiday lighting specialist for your home or business makes sense for you, it's important to schedule an appointment soon with the decorator of your choice for the widest options in decor and installation dates."
