It’s the holiday season yet again; time to trim the tree and hang the lights. But not everyone has the time, energy or physical ability to decorate a whole house-- especially those big light displays and roof top decorations. The task of holiday decorating can be daunting, but most people still want to enjoy the spirit of the holidays through seasonal décor. Luckily people can have their decorations professionally installed by home remodeling experts. There are many companies that provide this service, simplifying their customer’s life by providing a hassle-free experience and great results.

What Holiday Display Installers Offer

Each "holiday helper" differs in what they offer, but most will provide some basic services to every client. All decorators will hang lights around your house and help set up power outlets and surge protectors. Attaching lights to the edge of the roofline is one of the most requested decorations, since it can be both physically and mentally frustrating, so it has become a standard service.

Some companies will go above and beyond, meeting numerous times with customers to design intricate layouts that require thousands of lights. They will install wreaths, reindeer lawn displays, Santa Claus rooftop fixtures and shrubbery lighting, all in the effort to make the house as festive as possible and their clients extremely happy.

When having decorations professionally installed, people can choose whether or not to purchase the lights or lease them. This is an important factor to consider, since it can have a big impact on the overall cost of the installation. Buying lights will cost more initially, but once customers have the lights, they can reuse them year after year. For people who are uncertain whether or not they want to make this an annual tradition, leasing lights is probably the smarter way to go.

Safety is a huge concern for both the client and the decorator, so making sure there is plenty of energy available for the lights is essential. Most companies offer a maintenance or repair guarantee; so if a fuse blows or decorations fall over, they will come and fix it for no extra charge. Also, professional decorating services will return after the holidays are over and remove all the lighting and displays, storing them for customers in their facilities until next year.

How Much Will My Professional Holiday Decorating Cost?

The cost of having holiday decorations professionally installed will depend on a number of factors. First, each company will charge different fees, so it’s smart to shop around for the best prices. Second, as mentioned before, the cost will increase depending on if customers buy or lease their lights. Third, the amount of decorating done to a house will significantly affect the overall cost.

Customers also need to consider that their utility bills will go up due to the excess energy needed to power their lights. On average, people see an increase of about $30 a month on their bills, but that number relies on the extent of your decorations. For those who just want a simple display of holiday decorations, it is smarter and cheaper to do it themselves. Many professional decorating companies are so swamped during this time of year that they require a minimum order ranging between $200 and $500.

Depending on the grandeur of the decorations, some holiday displays can cost upwards of $10,000. However, most companies report that, on average, people spend between $1,200 and $1,500 on their decorations.
