Tis the season for holiday décor. Phoenix residents are especially holly and jolly during the holiday season, as we do boast sunny 70-degree days throughout much of the wintertime. Our warm weather doesn’t stop us from adding holiday cheer to our homes. Decking the halls, adding faux snowmen and hanging glistening lights is a favorite amongst many Phoenician families.
This year, a growing trend in holiday décor is becoming even more popular. Did you know that many of your neighbors actually skip the hassle and frustration of hanging outdoor Christmas lights and hire a professional? Yes, there are professional Phoenix holiday light installers that have perfected their craft so Valley homes can shine ever so bright.
Leisure Installation Services
Homes throughout Phoenix are being lit by the professionals at Leisure Installation Services. Formed by husband and wife team, James and Sasha Lewis, they created a family owned company dedicated to bringing quality and integrity back into this world. As parents, they insist that safety and security are paramount.
During the holiday season, they specialize in Phoenix custom holiday lighting services. They install commercial grade c7 lights cut to a home’s specific needs. After the season, they come back to remove the lights, which you get to keep. They will also hang your pre-owned lights.
Their company also provides residential installation of entertainment and premanufactured products such as wooden playsets, trampolines, basketball goals, sheds, and gazebos.
More About James and Sasha
Fa la la la, hanging holiday lights might be one of the most festive jobs of the season, except for the big guy in red, of course. We asked James what his favorite part of the job was. “The best part of hanging Christmas lights is when they turn on and the house lights up,” explains James. “It’s always great to get photos from customers the first time the lights can be seen at night. Everyone remembers driving through neighborhoods as children looking at the lights and it is always great when we can be part of that.”
The least favorite part of hanging phoenix holiday lights? “The ladder work!” says James. “That’s also why I am in business! Each installation requires a unique approach because of the home design and landscape. Being able to maintain safety at all times is my primary concern and Phoenix topography adds an interesting challenge at times.”
As you would expect, James and Sasha’s home is lit up for Christmas. They are a bit traditional in the timing, so they put up their Christmas tree on Thanksgiving and everything begins to come down within a week after New Year’s. Their two story home is complete with the white c7 lights and the front tree wrapped in white mini lights. A Christmas wreath hangs from the front door welcoming family and guests. For fun inside the house, they wrap the banister with multicolored LED lights.
DIY Tips for Phoenix Residents
Be careful to not overload your circuits by plugging too many lines together. Pay close attention to the limit recommendations to avoid fire hazards.
If you are using hot glue on the stucco and do not want to ruin it when taking the lights down, use heat to quickly soften the glue so it releases the string instead of popping it off the wall.
On a tight budget? Place a wreath on the front door and one eye catching decoration inside other than the tree. One or two things can add to the holiday spirit.
