Hiring a contractor or small business to work on your home can bring a great deal of worry and anxiety to many homeowners. How do I know I’m getting a good deal? How do I know they will complete the job? Am I choosing the right company? These are all questions you might ask yourself. We’re here to make a little easier on you when it comes to selecting a landscape lighting company that will leave you satisfied with your experience.
Certification from the AOLP
What is the AOLP? It stands for Association of Outdoor Lighting Professionals. This company certifies and educates landscape lighting professionals. Living in the coastal Carolinas, you are familiar with the dreaded hurricane season that rolls around each year in late summer. If damages are made, the area is swarming with contractors. You don’t know who to trust or who actually has expertise in landscape lighting. If a professional is certified with the AOLP, they specialize in landscape lighting and you can rest assured that your project is in the hands of a real professional landscape lighting designer.
No one wants to feel like they are just a number. Especially not when you are paying someone to complete work for you. Pay attention to your first interaction with a company and the way they complete a consult. It says a lot about whether or not they take the time to take care of their customers. You want a company that understands that every home and every customer needs individual attention. No project is the same! A good landscape lighting company will give you a call or even come out to your property to discuss your goals for your outdoor lighting system and will give you a customized quote with options.
Warranty and Maintenance
Be sure to ask the company if they offer any warranties. A good landscape lighting company has warranties available both on their workmanship and their materials. You should also be sure that the company offers maintenance. Any landscape lighting system will require some degree of maintenance eventually. It’s best to be sure that the same team that installed your system is available to complete repairs or any future additions. They will be the most familiar with your system and it saves you from having to explain things you may not fully understand to another contractor years down the road.
