Post lights are a common feature on the properties of many Coastal Carolina homes. From the historic houses in downtown Wilmington and Southport to the farmhouses out in Pender County and the beach homes in Wrightsville Beach – post lights have long been a common way to illuminate a property.
Outdoor post lights not only create a nice wash of light over the surrounding driveway, sidewalk, and landscape, but they add a design element that can be enjoyed during the day as well as at night. Many post lights are beginning to show their age, are not very energy efficient, or simply have quit functioning. The team at Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Wilmington is here to help!
Outdoor Post Light Installation
Our team has access to a variety of decorative outdoor post lights to fit your property’s unique style and theme. With our exclusive complimentary design consultation, we are sure we can find the right outdoor light post for your property.
If you’re not sure where the best place to use these lights, we have a few ideas you might consider:
- Near your parking area, between the driveway and the house.
- At the street, to clearly mark your driveway or walkway leading to the house.
- Multiple post lights along a lengthy driveway offer beautiful guidance on a dark night.
- As a decorative light in the center of your front lawn.
Outdoor Post Light Replacement
As post lights age, time, and weather take a toll. Common issues we’ve seen include rusted out bases, corroded wires, rotted bases, bad connections, and unsightly weathering on the finish of the post itself. So even if your post light is still functioning, it might be time to replace it for aesthetic purposes.
Many existing outdoor post lights are 120 volts and require a licensed electrician to repair or update. Our team is licensed for low-voltage and are happy to install new LED outdoor post lights that will not only allow outdoor lighting professionals to work on them but will also significantly lower your cost of running and maintaining them.
LED post lights that emit the same light are generally 14 volts or less, and the bulbs last up to ten times longer. If you’re ready to replace your post light, we are happy to help.
If you’d love the classic look of an outdoor post light on your property or need to upgrade your existing post light, call our dedicated team today. At Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Wilmington, we look forward to working with you.
