Spring is an excellent time to hire an outdoor lighting company to illuminate your home or property. Landscape lighting will not only allow you to enjoy your backyard more during these warmer months but also deters potential intruders. However, it is important to do your due diligence before hiring a company to work on your property.
An article recently published mentioned how a homeowner in the Bay Area paid a landscaper to work on her property. The contractor took her money but did not complete the work. The homeowner hired a different contractor only to have it happen again. Unfortunately, this sort of thing happens. Not all contractors are bad. We wanted to share a few tips to keep in mind when hiring a landscape lighting company (or anyone working on your home).
Here are 3 tips for finding a reliable outdoor lighting company:
1. Use Your Network:
Start by asking your friends, family members, and co-workers for recommendations. Word of mouth referrals
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
