What is the Average Cost for Professional Outdoor Lighting in Raleigh, NC?

This is a question we hear from people that contact us nearly every single day of the week. The truth is, it’s a difficult question to answer without having any context. While most outdoor lighting projects fall between $2,000 and $4,000, there are a variety of factors that can make that number higher or lower. It truly comes down to the type of fixture you select, whether simple LED or color-changing LED, the total number of fixtures, as well as the different types of application and installation. For example, if it’s necessary to drill through brick and/or concrete to feed wiring, then that’s going to be added as an additional cost. Furthermore, if you’re looking for downlighting, where we need to attach a lighting fixture to a tree and then adjust for effect, possibly multiple times, this, too, may increase the price of your system.

The most common type of outdoor lighting design and installation is home uplighting. This most often simply involves the installation of carefully placed, low-voltage LED lighting fixtures to provide illumination to your home’s architectural façade. This is most common due to the fact it’s what neighbors of existing customers often see the most. It’s highly effective at showcasing your home’s best features after dark, as well as providing increased curb appeal and bringing added depth and texture to your home once nightfall arrives. While this is easily the most common type of outdoor lighting system that we install, it’s far from the only type.

Lately, landscape, specifically path lighting, has become increasingly popular. Additionally, this is becoming more common for homeowners that started off with standard architectural uplighting. This is an important thing to note, as you can add onto your system as you see fit. You don’t have to have all the lighting you’d prefer installed all at once. Several of our customers will actually install their outdoor lighting in stages and it’s extremely helpful to do so for a large number of them. In the end, the choice is up to you. We recommend obtaining multiple quotes for your home’s outdoor lighting, as there is no shortage of outdoor lighting providers in Raleigh, NC, and the surrounding areas of the RTP.
