5 Reasons to Hire a Professional for Christmas Light Install

As the holiday season approaches, home owners are beginning to plan and prepare for the annual tradition of decorating their property. Although the end result is worth the work, the task of installing holiday decor can be strenuous. The activity often entails climbing to the highest points of the home, which is very dangerous and can result in serious injury. Hiring professional decorators who can take care of all the dangerous parts of holiday decorating, leaves you with the fun part – the design. With the help of our team at Christmas Lights by Skedaddle, your only task will be deciding how you want your holiday home to look, leaving all the heavy lifting to the professionals.

Whether you want to be the most decorated home on the block or a simple cozy light display for the holidays, our team at Skedaddle Christmas Lights has developed a system that is customizable to each homeowner’s design needs. From design, to installation, to storage and maintenance, we take care of everything. Aside from avoiding a slippery roof, you may be asking, how can I benefit from hiring professionals to install my holiday decor? Let this blog teach you why hiring a professional decorator is the perfect plan this holiday season.

1. Eliminate Risk of Injury

The most important reason that you should call in the professionals to handle your home decor this year is to ensure your safety. Installing decor can be extremely dangerous, especially once the snow and ice begin to settle on your roof. Even scaling ladders requires professional training to be done safely. Without the knowledge and equipment required to safely get to the top of the roof, you may fall and injure yourself or others. Once on the roof, ice, snow, weak points, and the steep slope can result in a dangerous fall. Our team of professional decorators come to every home with the proper training and experience to safely reach every high point of a home, and neatly install the lights along all of those hard to reach areas.

2. A Beautiful Display Within Your Budget

It can be hard to find nice holiday lights that are designed to last for several winter seasons, and even harder to find them at a reasonable price. The bigger your home, the more lights required to make your home stunning for the holidays. When working with professionals, you are given top of line products that will not diminish from even the coldest winter day. Our team will work with you to create the holiday decor of your dreams within your budget. You decide every detail from the specific colour to the overall aesthetic. Our premium quality lights and decor outshine any light you will find on the shelf, resulting in a professional and polished look without the task of installing or purchasing them yourself.

3. Hassle-free Storage and Maintenance

Installing decor is boring, but taking it down is an even more unbearable task. Placing all those wet cords of lights, decorations and wreaths neatly away in storage boxes takes hours of work, and usually results in a disorganised jumble of decor stuffed in a cardboard box until next year. As a part of our process, Christmas Lights by Skedaddle will remove and store all decor for homeowners. Your custom decor will be safely stored until the following year.

Winter weather can also cause a number of issues with holiday decorations, from fallen wreaths to damaged lights. Our team is only a phone call away all season long to make sure your property is stunning for the entire holiday season.

Top 5 Decorating Tips from Professional Holiday Decorators

1. Balance: The key to a memorable holiday display

When it comes to designing and installing a clean and elegant holiday display one of the most important features is balance. If the lights aren’t evenly spaced or are too concentrated in one area it can throw off the entire look and feel. How can you achieve balanced holiday lighting?

2. Custom Cut

What truly separates professional Christmas lights from those available at the local hardware store is the ability to custom cut the wire to any home’s exact specifications. Custom cut lights give professional installers the ability to put lights exactly where they want them. This means they don’t have to find a place for extra footage or leave other sections of roof line short.

3. Height

When most people think of Christmas lights their thoughts immediately go to roof lighting but it’s important to consider the entire property when decorating. To balance lights that run along the roof line there are a number of lighting options at lower levels that help make the display look more full.

  • Highlight landscaping by lighting trees and shrubs
  • Accentuate windows by lighting their perimeter
  • Ground lighting for garden edges, driveways and walkways
  • Lit wreaths and garland offer day and night time decor


4. Depth

One aspect of a balanced display that is often forgotten is depth of light. This can be achieved in a number of different ways. One of the more stunning ways to add depth to roof lighting is extending the lights beyond the roof line and running them along the ridges. This creates an almost 3D appearance and highlights the unique features of the roof line.

Depth can also be added by lighting elements at both the front and back of the property. Very often this can be done through landscape lighting and selecting trees and shrubs that are both close to the as well as the street. Ground lighting that runs along the edge of a pathway or garden can also create stunning sight lines.

5. Be Selective

When it comes to decorating a property for the holidays less can very often be more. As mentioned, there are many ways to create a balanced look but in most cases it only takes two or three elements to really make it happen. A careful designer will take the time to recognize the unique features of any home and property and be selective when bringing them to life.
