Hiring a company that specializes in outdoor lighting in Atlanta is the best decision; especially after you have already invested a good deal of money into your home. An outdoor lighting professional is trained to take your lighting dreams and turn them into a reality that you, your friends, and family can enjoy at night.
If you’re planning on installing outdoor lighting or want to include outdoor lighting with your overall landscaping vision, it’s imperative to hire someone who can fully realize the entire scope of the project. In case you need further convincing, here’s a few more reasons why you need an outdoor lighting professional:
Professional Grade Fixtures
Many homeowners are quick to purchase outdoor lighting fixtures from their local hardware store. The appeal is that these are inexpensive, and can be installed by any consumer, no matter their skill level. However, unlike metal or plastic kit lighting, a professional grade lighting system is comprised of architectural grade components that are engineered to be specified and installed by an experienced outdoor lighting professional.
High-end outdoor lighting effects can’t be properly performed with cheap kit lighting. The outdoor lights found at the box store in your neighborhood are notorious for being low output and, as a result, are incapable of properly illuminating most of your yard’s architecture and landscaping. Additionally, they’re only meant to last for (around) 18 months, meaning these fixture would require replacement every couple of years.
The adage ‘you get what you pay for’ is certainly true when it comes to outdoor lighting products. There is a wide variety of products that are exclusively made available to lighting professionals and (unfortunately) not accessible to the average consumer.
This includes specific high-grade bulbs, fixtures, and other products. By utilizing these resources, your lighting professional can give your home a cohesive and unique style, at the highest quality possible.
You run the risk of endangering both your life and the lives of your family when you attempt any electrical installation yourself. Unfortunately, when you’re working with electricity, there is no “do-overs”. If you fail to make sure the electrical current is off or touch the wrong wires together this can lead to fatal results.
It’s also possible that you’ll be creating possible water main breaks and/or severe gas line issues if you’re not sure what you’re doing. The outdoor lighting experts at NightVision Outdoor Lighting have relationships with many of the utility companies in greater Atlanta and go through an extensive process for every project in order to fully ensure all of the utilities on a client’s property are flagged and marked before anything is installed.
