How many times have you said, “I wish I would have known that when…”? You were probably speaking of something you would have done differently or a decision you would have changed had you known the options or benefits at the important time.
If you’re building a new home in the Columbia SC area, think about whether you are going to add outdoor lighting to your home. You will save time and money to make this decision while you are still building. From a practical standpoint, outdoor lighting system installation requires digging trenches, burying wire, and installing a transformer – all things that are much easier to do while your grounds are already torn up and before you install your landscaping. The same is true when adding an outdoor living space such as a patio, deck or pergola to your home. You will want to have lighting for that area too and you certainly want to install that before the pavers, foundations, and deck boards are laid.
Here’s another example. If you are going to want outdoor lighting across the front façade of your home or across the front hedge row, this requires buried wire from end to end. Before you build that front walk, you want to have your lighting wires buried.
Another benefit of calling us in early is integrating our professional lighting design expertise. There may be areas in your yard that are ideal for focal element lighting. We may recommend keeping a tree for its potential use in accent lighting. Through seeing your home’s outdoor lighting potential prior to its completed construction, we can make use of areas that will possibly be covered up by the time the construction is fully completed.
