How to Add String Lights On a Deck?

Never Ask “How to Add String Lights On a Deck” Again With Professional Lighting Installation

Thanks to the internet, most people are adamant DIYers. From figuring out their own plumbing to building a fire pit in the backyard, there isn’t anything someone can’t figure out how to do with help from the internet. However, just because the instructions are up there, doesn’t mean you should do it. A quick DIY tutorial is nothing in comparison to hiring someone with decades of experience. The same is true with professional lighting. If you’re thinking of Googling “How to add string lights on a deck?” consider all of your options and what kind of results you will get with yourself versus a professional.

Why You Shouldn’t Ask “How to Hang String Lights on a Deck?”

Before you spend hundreds of dollars on supplies for your deck transformation, take a minute to think about how much work it will actually take to add lighting to your deck. Let’s start with the type of string lighting you choose. Do you know which one lasts the longest or which one will be the most energy-efficient? Do you know where you can plug it in at? Is it going to be on a timer or will you manually turn it on? Next, how will you hang the lights? Are you using nails, screws, or something else? It has to be able to withstand all types of weather. Next, how much time is this going to take you? If something breaks or it stops working are you going to fix it yourself?

These are the types of questions you should ask yourself if you’re going to commit to a DIY project. If the results don’t turn out looking great or you run into trouble, you can only blame yourself.
