Outdoor Lighting Fixtures: Not All Are Created Equal

At Outdoor Lighting Perspectives, our goal is to provide the best outdoor lighting systems to our clients. The fixtures themselves are key to having an outdoor lighting system that not only looks great, but is reliable and long lasting.

My husband and I moved last year. In making one of the “this is who I am and this is what I do” conversations, one new acquaintance started asking me questions about outdoor lighting. He told me that he had purchased lights, but the effect on the home just didn’t look right. When I asked him where he got his lights, he said the nearest big box store. There was his problem.

When investing in outdoor lighting, you want to ensure that you are using the best quality fixtures. What makes the best fixtures? Their durability and their technology.

Outdoor lights have to endure a lot being outdoors. Rain, snow, sleet, heat, cold, salty air in some parts of the country, they have to be durable to last! At Outdoor Lighting Perspectives, we use solid copper and brass fixtures. They are strong and corrosion-proof, that’s why they carry a 10-year warranty on them!

Not only to the copper and brass fixtures stand the test of time, but they also look great year after year. Over time the fixtures take on a rich patina, blending seamlessly into their surroundings.

Lighting technology, like everything, changes and evolves. At OLP, we want the technology that provides the best and most consistent performance. Those cheap lights you by at the local home improvement store may look good for a few months, but we only use lights that will last for years!

LED technology has continued to improve over the last 5 years. The bulb life is longer, it provides a consistent life output and reduces your carbon footprint and energy bill!
