Tips for Hiring an Outdoor Lighting Company for Your Home or Property | McKay Landscape Lighting Omaha Nebraska

It's an excellent time to start a project with an outdoor lighting company, just before summer, giving you plenty of time to get more use out of your space while deterring potential intruders. However, it's important to remember to do some research before hiring a company to complete work at your property. 

An article recently published mentioned how a homeowner in the Bay Area paid a landscaper to complete work at her property. The contractor took her money but didn't complete the work. The homeowner hired a different contractor only to have the same thing happen again. It's unfortunate that this sort of thing happens. We wanted to share some general tips to keep in mind when hiring a landscape lighting company. These tips should work for other types of contractors too. 

Here are key tips for finding an outdoor lighting company:  

Selecting the right landscape lighting company might seem like a lot of work. But, it's necessary work, as it ensures you'll get the most for you money and an end result that you're happy with. | McKay Landscape Lighting Omaha Nebraska

1. Use Your Network: 

Start by asking your friends, family members, and co-workers for recommendations. Word of mouth referrals are great because you're talking with people who've had first-hand experience with the outdoor lighting company. 

2. Go Deeper with Research: 

It's time to dig a little deeper. Check your local Better Business Bureau for reports on the companies you're considering. It's also a good idea to look for online reviews from credible sources - do they have Google, Yelp, Houzz, or Angie's List reviews? 

3. Conduct Interviews: 

After you have narrowed down your choices, it's time to schedule in-person interviews or quote meetings with the prospective contractors remaining on your list. You should ask these questions during the meeting to get a better idea of how long they've been in business, if they'd be able to help with future additions or maintenance needs, and the scope of your project.
