It's Holiday Lights time. How much do I pay to have them installed?

On average, across the country, annual Christmas light installations cost between $1400 and $2100 per year. The location where you want the lights hung, the size of your property, whether you require the installer to supply the lights, and whether you also want the lights taken down all affect the cost (which can all be extra).

Anyone looking to brighten their home for the holidays (and guarantee that Santa doesn't miss their house) can greatly benefit from the installation and removal of Christmas lights. At the start of the holiday season, professional installers will handle the tiresome and frequently dangerous process of installing holiday lights, and they will come to take everything down once the celebrations are done. With a one-time installation of Trimlight Permanent lights that are made specifically for your property, this may be avoided year after year. Learn how Trimlight works.

On average, installers charge twice as much to hang lights on a home's second floor as on its first. Due to the special equipment required for the job, your roof may cost 30% more if it is difficult to access without any reindeer.

The cost of a string of Christmas lights is not inexpensive!

Depending on the quality and style of lights, you should prepare to spend, on average, between $15 and $45 per strand if you don't already have Christmas lights.

Most typical residences between 1,000 and 2,000 square feet in size require between 15 and 25 total strands. You should anticipate paying between $1.25 and $3 per linear foot for the strands of lights alone if you want the firm that installs your Christmas lights to also supply the lights.

There are numerous types of lighting available, which will also impact the price. For instance, LED lights are more expensive than incandescent lights, but they last longer and use less energy, which can result in long-term cost savings. Once installed, the LED lights in the Trimlight system ensure that you never have to bother about lights again. Trimlight lights will also enable you to reduce your annual installation search effort and electrical cost. Learn how Trimlight works.

Removal of Christmas lights costs extra.

When the holiday season is over, having the lights taken down usually costs roughly half of what you paid to have them installed. Ask upfront because some installers include the cost of removal in the overall pricing. You won't have to worry about hanging or taking down lights again thanks to Trimlight. Get a FREE ESTIMATE.
