How Much Does Christmas Light Installation Cost St Michaels MD?
How much does Christmas light installation cost? What are the factors that affect the price of installation? And what should you know before hiring someone to do your installation? This article will answer all those questions and more.
The first question to consider when determining how much your project will cost is the number of strings you want installed. The longer the wire, or string, that runs from one end of your yard to another, the more expensive it will be. If you have an exceptionally long house with lots of windows and doors, this might mean several hundred feet worth of wiring if not more! A typical installer sets up about 100 feet per day so they can charge by foot at $0.05 – $0.15 per linear foot, $50 to $150 for just the wire and bulbs alone.
No matter what your house looks like or how far you want your lights stretched, many companies provide a flat rate of around $4-$8 per running foot installed and up to 5-8 hours on site (depending on number of strings). If this seems too low or high depending on your needs, keep in mind that Christmas light installation is one of those services where it may end up costing more than you expect as additional expenses crop up.
After determining the cost associated with all of this (and doing some quick math), we end up at an estimate of about $10 per running foot worth of lights. This could vary depending on the work you’d like done on your house. This includes the wire and lights, installation, taking down old decorations (if you want), and other small add-ons like extra bulbs.
As for other costs associated with this service, you can usually expect to pay $0.25 per light bulb each if needed; however, we recommend testing out your existing strand before buying replacements as they rarely burn out and may cost more than you’d like.
Before you hire someone to do this for you or if their estimate is too high, consider doing it yourself. Christmas lights are relatively inexpensive and extremely easy to install on your own with a few tools but if you’re looking to put on an extravagant display, a professional might be the way to go!
