Three Reasons to Hire a Contractor for Your Holiday Lighting

The holidays are fast approaching, and it’s past time to think about your holiday lighting. Many homeowners choose to put up their holiday lights on their own, but there are several good reasons why you should hire a contractor instead.

Safety First

While it is sometimes tough to admit, some people really shouldn’t be on ladders or roofs. If you have bad knees, arthritis, or other health conditions, you probably shouldn’t be putting up holiday lights. Even if you are very healthy, you put your safety at risk when you install holiday lighting, especially if you do it with the wrong equipment. Hiring a contractor will keep you safely on the ground, while the contractor will use the appropriate tools, equipment, and safety measures.

Protect Yourself

If you have an accident while installing holiday lighting, you will likely have to file a claim with your homeowner’s insurance in order to pay the resulting medical bills. Likewise, if you have someone helping you put up the holiday lighting and they get hurt, it is a definite claim on your homeowner’s insurance. Such claims can raise your rates. A contractor carries their own insurance so that anyone working on your home in their capacity is covered in case of injury.

Faster and Cleaner

A contractor that installs holiday lighting professionally is much more likely to complete the job much faster than you could. In addition, your holiday lighting will look cleaner and neater than if you were to do it yourself.
