DIY vs Professional Installation

Custom Lighting Design Installation on Residential House

As a DIY’er myself, I understand the thought process and the reason for questioning. One of the most common questions we get is“Why should we hire a professional light install company instead of doing this myself?”.

The fact of the matter is you can install outdoor lighting yourself and it is not that hard, similar products are readily available online and it will probably only take you an entire day to get it done. That seems reasonable. What you find out later is you end up spending more money in the end to get all the little tools, the multiple trips back and forth to your local Lowes or Home Depot to get the last 4 wire nuts you need or to get the masonry screws you need to fit the transformer onto your brick wall.

Now you have wasted an entire day and your landscape lighting just doesn’t look the same as your neighbors does who spent the same, maybe little more money, to have a professional designer and installer handle their lighting needs. You are not paying just for the lights and the wire when you hire Light TN of Nashville, you are starting relationship that has your property’s visual aesthetic in mind and will be there with you the entire time you are that property to keep the lighting looking like the day it was installed, forever.

What does that all include you ask? In person consultation and design planning with you at your property, a professional, no hassle installation that you will be blown away by how clean and unnoticeable it was that we just buried wiring in your lawn or mulch area. A follow-up of the results of the lighting design when you see it that night or sit with it over the course of a couple days and of course NO payment until you are happy with the results, and we have accomplished your dream vision.

Now a year has gone by, and the lighting is starting to have shadows on your house. No problem, we can set you up on a yearly maintenance plan and we will stop by twice a year to trim back any bushes or move any fixtures to get you the results like you had on day one.

What if a light stops working or a bulb goes bad? No problem, our no hassle warranties make it easy for you to get your system back up and running, just give us a call and we will take care of it right away for you. After all of this, sit down, do the math, and see if you still want to do it yourself. I think you will find that hiring a professional lighting designer and installer like Light TN will have a bigger return on your investment than you ever imagined, whether you are looking for landscape lighting or architectural lighting solutions.
