Christmas lights are installed on the edge of the rooflines. Plastic clips are used to secure the lights the eavestrough or edge of the shingles. Extension cords are used to connect different rooflines and different storeys together.
C9 LED Lights
The C9 LED lights have a larger bulb which is a strawberry shape and about 2 ½ inches tall. They are installed by clipping each individual bulb, which creates a nice straight clean look. It is sometimes referred to the ‘show home’ look.
C6 LED Lights
The C6 LED lights have a smaller bulb which is a strawberry shape and about 1 inch tall. These lights are installed by clipping at every foot intervals, which gives it a ‘shaggy’ appearance when compared to the traditional ‘show home’ style of light installation.
C6 LED Double Wrap
A C6 LED Double Wrap is when two C6 LED light strands are wrapped together. This provides a fuller and brighter appearance when compared to the standard C6 LED install. It is designed to eliminate the ‘shaggy’ appearance by providing a plethora of light emulating from your roofline.
Icicles LED lights
Icicles LED lights are made with either a C6 or Mini sized bulb. The lights have vertical strands that vary in length, which gives these lights a dripping illumination effect.
Typically, the C6 LED lights are used for installations on trees. There are more bulbs per strand and they twinkle more in the trees, as compared to the larger bulb C9 LED lights.
Deciduous trees with strong branches look amazing wrapped in lights! C6 LED lights are used to wrap the truck and main branches of the tree. The lights can be wrapped closer together to create a very bright full look.
Trees and bushes of all sizes, especially ones that have a uniform shape are great for a globe style install. This is where the lights are hung around the tree on the outside branches.
The crews start the install at the very tip of the tree and works down hanging the lights onto the ends of the branches. Small and large evergreens always a great choice, a wonderful traditional look.
