Tips for Hanging Christmas Lights

Exterior Remodeling in Denver, COChristmas time is here! Before you start hanging lights on your home, here a few tips to help you get started:

  • Use Outdoor Lights – You may not realize it, but some Christmas lights are meant for outdoor use, while other lights can only be used indoors. Take a look at the packaging before you purchase new lights to ensure that you are buying the right options for your needs.
  • Be Careful with Extension Cords – While you are hanging your lights, you should be mindful of any extension cords you use. First of all, make sure that any cords you use are out of the way. You do not want someone tripping, hurting themselves, and pulling down the entire display. Additionally, only use cords that are rated for outdoor use.
  • Put Safety First – A simple way to be safe while hanging lights is to use a good ladder and make sure that you have someone with you to help you with things that you drop. Additionally, you should consider using insulated holders to hang your lights instead of tacks or nails.
