Installing outdoor lighting is a significant investment, and selecting the right contractor can make or break the experience. Finding a contractor for any project is challenging and essential, but the outdoor electrical work required for landscape lighting makes finding a qualified outdoor lighting contractor particularly critical. Here are a few things to consider when choosing an outdoor lighting contractor for your next project.
Make Sure They Have Experience
Unlike other home electrical projects, outdoor lighting installation requires specialized knowledge of weatherproofing and the impact of the changing seasons on your light fixtures. Landscape lighting systems are exposed to inclement weather, animals, landscaping equipment, and more. Because of this, you must choose an outdoor lighting contractor with extensive experience installing and maintaining outdoor lighting systems. Experienced contractors will know what hazards to avoid when installing landscape lighting that lasts.
Ask as Many Questions as Possible
Meeting with a potential contractor is important. You can learn a lot about the company by meeting and asking questions. You can also see if you can trust this company with this project on your property. Can they connect you with other homeowners who have used their services so you can ask them questions? Do they use quality, long-lasting fixtures? How long have they been installing landscape lights? Is outdoor lighting all they do, or is it just one part of their business? Many landscapers install landscape lighting as part of their list of services, but it isn’t their core business.
Consider Future Service and Maintenance
There are two reasons why your outdoor lighting contractor should have maintenance experience. Firstly, a lighting installation professional who can also offer maintenance services is a valuable asset for the future of your system. Not only will you already have a working relationship with your contractor, but they will know the details of your specific system. Secondly, contractors with repair experience will know how to install your system best to preserve its lifespan and prevent malfunctions and maintenance issues. The professionals at Sposato Irrigation offer lighting design, installation, and maintenance services, so you can rest assured that your outdoor lighting system will look great and be installed and maintained easily.
Will You Need Alterations in the Future?
You may be in love with the way your lighting is configured. However, alterations are unavoidable. Perhaps you want to remodel or add an extension to your home, such as a swimming pool or patio. Adding lights to an existing design comes with many problems. Engineering quality is one incentive to employ professionals instead of performing the installation yourself. Wiring and re-connection to your power supply are important considerations and must be done with precision and care.
