There are three main goals in professional outdoor lighting, regardless if it is for a residential or business application. The first goal is extremely important.
1. Does it look stunning?
– Most homeowners say, “I’m not sure exactly what I want to buy; however, I will know it when I see it.” At first impression, you should know right away, because the outdoor lighting should make you say “wow!”.
2. The light fixtures should be as invisible as possible. Remember, if the main goal is for the lighting to look amazing at night than it should be unseen during the day. If you are not able to hide the light then weighing the look at night against the visibility during the day should be done.
3. Everything works properly and turns on and off when it should. Our customers lead extremely busy lives, so the last thing that one should be worried about is the outdoor lighting working and turning on/off at the right times. The lighting should last for a considerable amount of time now that everything is LED.
Making sure you have the best outdoor landscape lighting company will accomplish all of these goals. When a homeowner or business owner is receiving estimates, insist on receiving a complimentary evening demonstration, that way you will see what the outdoor lighting will look like against your home or commercial property.
When the installation is complete, walk the property with the Foreman, ensuring the yard is not torn up from digging and light fixtures are not an eyesore. Also, look at reviews and warranty information. An established outdoor lighting company will have been in business longer than their warranty. Be wary of a lighting company requiring a deposit; only pay when the job is done and you see the final product.
