The holidays are just around the corner, and with them comes a time when you can add light and holiday cheer to your home and yard. If you plan on decking your halls with holiday lights, be sure to make wise decisions before you have them put up. Follow these tips to make sure you, your light installers, and your property are safe this holiday season.
- Do It in Good Weather
Weather is unpredictable most of the time but even more so in the winter months surrounding holidays. Snow, rain, and cold temperatures can make the environment difficult for installing lights around your home’s exterior.
Moisture means the possibility of ice on walkways and surfaces, which can make standing on a ladder to string lights a very dangerous task. Lots of snow can also put pressure on trees and build up on roofs — and you don’t want to be under falling branches or snow.
