Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
How much does it cost to decorate my house?
Our pricing averages to around $8 per foot for most items. The total cost depends on the size of your house, the amount of lights you want, and what you want decorated. Total cost including installation, lights, labor, and teardown can range from $1000 for an average roofline, up to several thousand dollars for more extravagant displays.
When will you install my lights?
For Halloween, we install anytime up to October 26th. For Christmas, we can install anytime up to December 15th. For all other holidays and events, please contact us for installation dates.
How does an estimate work? Do I have to purchase everything quoted?
When you contact us we will typically request a picture of your home to create a concept drawing of what your house could look like. We quote many options to allow you create your own personalized display. All of our pricing is a la carte so you can pick and choose what works best for you and your budget.
How do I control RGB/Permanent lighting?
We currently offer 2 different permanent RGB lighting options, Inception and Permatrack. Inception is controlled via a smartphone app with preset effects. Permatrack is computer controlled to give you nearly infinite options for controlling the lights, including creating your own dancing light shows!
What does the cost include?
Our typical pricing includes purchasing lights, installation, teardown and boxing up. We specialize in offering a totally hands-off, all inclusive experience. We take care of the hard work so you can enjoy the holidays!
Where do you purchase your lights?
All lights are purchased brand new, LED, and custom cut to match your home. We partner with multiple lighting businesses across the country to ensure you always get the best deal, while still ensuring you receive a high-quality product. We custom cut everything from extension cords to light strings to perfectly fit your home. You will own all of the lights once the season is over so, if you choose, you can decorate on your own with the same lights the next year!
*FOR LIABILITY AND MAINTENANCE REASONS, WE CANNOT UTILIZE LIGHTS YOU CURRENTLY OWN.
Light Show Questions
How many lights do you have in the show?
During the final show in 2019, we had over 40,000 lights!
How did you control all of the lights?
We use two softwares called Light-O-Rama and xLights to run our shows. The software and controllers are basically computerized light switches.
How long did it take to set everything up?
In 2019, we completed installation of the Christmas show in a record 5 days!!! (compared to typically 18 days)
How high was your electric bill for the show?
Though we don't know the actual amount, due to using electricity around the house, as well as the show, we estimated it to be less than $25 to power the show for 45 days. We used 100% LED lights in our show which helped cut down on the power costs enormously.
