Are you already making plans for your Christmas light installation (or perhaps a more generic holiday light installation)? While many homeowners assume this is a job that they can handle themselves, there are some pitfalls and possible issues that you need to think about before you begin work.
First of all, think about the lights you want to install: what kind of shape are they in? Do you know if all the bulbs will light up? Are they sitting in an old cardboard box, a tangled rat’s nest? Who wants to deal with all of that - and do you really have the time anyway?
