We at Outdoor Lighting Perspectives have been in the exterior lighting industry for over 20 years. Whether it’s the latest lighting technology, the hippest fixtures or new installation techniques, we pride ourselves on staying abreast of everything happening in the industry. That’s why we’re the experts.
As lighting has become more and more popular, we’ve noticed some companies, like landscapers, and deck and pool companies, adding it to their service offerings. While it may seem right to work with a company that is already on your property for another reason, that’s not the case when it comes to lighting. We suggest homeowners work with professional outdoor lighting companies, here’s why:
Design. The goal of any architectural and landscape lighting system is to accentuate the property and its architecture, colors and textures. The system’s design is incredibly important to ensure that everything is properly illuminated without dark spots. You see this house (after picture below) has dark spots all over the home. Certain peaks have no light or it’s uneven. A trained outdoor lighting designer will know just which fixtures to use and where to place them for the perfect final result.
Fixtures. Not all outdoor lighting fixtures are created equal. Some are too bright, others don’t provide enough output, and others aren’t made to last for years outside in sometimes harsh elements. At Outdoor Lighting Perspectives, we use only the highest-quality low-voltage and LED fixtures, ensuring our design continues to look great for years. LED lighting offers a longer bulb life, a pleasing color, and uses no toxic materials.
Service and Maintenance. Just like heating and cooling systems, irrigation systems and other household systems, outdoor lighting requires proactive maintenance to keep it looking and performing its best. From growing landscaping and lawn mower damage to wires being disrupted, normal outdoor activities can impact any lighting system. Professional outdoor lighting companies include maintenance in their service because they take pride in the overall performance of the system. Other types of companies may not understand the importance of proactive maintenance the way we do. That’s why we offer our clients and Annual Maintenance Plan on all of our systems.
