Tips to Help You Hang Your Christmas Lights with Care

Christmas time is right around the corner, which means it is time to start hanging your Christmas lights. Before you start decorating this year, consider the following tips:

  • Upgrade Your Lights – When was the last time you invested in new lights for your home? Before you hang lights on your home, take a look at the selections you have and consider making an upgrade. We also recommend getting rid of broken light strings or any lights that you have been using longer than a decade.
  • Use Proper Extension Cords – While getting your lighting together, you should take a look at the extension cords you have on hand. You should always make sure you are using outdoor cords only. If you are not sure about your extension cords, you can find new ones at your area hardware store.
  • Work with a Friend or Family Member – Christmas is about spending time with the people you love, so why not decorate the exterior of your home with their help? Not only will you be making memories, but you will also have someone there with you to hold the ladder and help with things you may have dropped.
