Derrick Pedranti and Tips For Christmas Lighting

Derrick Pedranti’s Tips For Christmas Lighting

When the Thanksgiving holiday approaches, it’s time to start thinking about Christmas Wintertime outdoor lighting. A popular time to do a lot of the decorating is the weekend following Thanksgiving. And if you choose to brave the crowds, Black Friday can be a good time to purchase new decorations a great price. Here are a few of Derrick Pedranti’s tips that can help you create an outdoor holiday winter wonderland masterpiece:

  • Look for deals on the decorations. Not only is this good for your budget but it can also help you purchase more lights. Check out your local paper and look for special deals and coupons. Also checkout the hardware stores’ websites for promotions and online coupons.
  • Wander the stores before you buy. Before you buy anything visit your local hardware stores to see what they have to offer. This can help spark some creative ideas. You can also check out the deals and price compare. Once you’ve done your research then go back to the stores with the best deals and make your purchases.
  • Hire a professional to do any risky holiday lighting tasks. If you decide do any risky decorations such as hanging lighting on your roof, there are licensed and bonded professionals that can help.
  • Use hooks instead of a staple gun. Cup hooks can be screwed into wooden lattices and they come in a variety of colors so they blend in. Other hooks can be easily attached to the gutters along your roof. Once you put up hooks you can reuse them each year making lights easier to hang.

These are just a few tips I hope you find helpful during the Christmas holiday season.

Thank you,
