When should I schedule my lighting installation?

Depending on the season, we recommend getting on our schedule sooner rather than later. Most of our clients book their service in September.

When can I expect the lights to be removed?

We typically tackle lighting removals in early January. If you want to keep your lights up longer than that, no problem. You can keep your lights up with no additional fee. However, lights must be removed by March.

Can you help if the lights are malfunctioning?

Yes, let us know, and we'll get the problem solved within 48 hours, so long as the weather permits.

Will my installation cost go down after the first year?

We use a three-year locked price for our installations as opposed to a higher cost the first year you have lights installed.

What if my tree grows within the first three years?

If you have a tree that needs more lights due to growth, we can accommodate and install additional lights at no extra cost.

Where can I explore my color and design options?

We can provide you with some examples of our previous projects, or you can show us some inspirational photos you've found online.

Why should I hire S&K Holiday Lighting for lighting installations?

We've been providing all-inclusive holiday lighting installation services in the Buffalo and Amherst, NY areas since 2009. We serve residential and commercial clients, create the largest displays in the area and we're Christmas Light Installations Professionals Association (CLIP) certified.

What accessories are included with light installations?

All materials are included with your installation package, including clips, extension cords, timers and more.

How are the lights turned on and off?

We connect your light display to timers that will automatically turn them on and off.

What are the benefits of leasing lights rather than purchasing lights?

Lights and displays often get damaged and worn down by the weather. Offering lights for lease rather than purchase works out better for our clients in the long run. We'll make sure your property is decked out with beautiful lights every year. Plus, you can change up your light colors at no additional cost.

How do I schedule a design consultation?

Call us, and we'll make getting a design consultation easy and stress-free. We'll schedule a time to meet at your property and go over all the details. We can provide estimates over the phone if a photo of your property is provided.

What is the difference between commercial lighting and big-box lighting?

We use higher quality lights for our commercial lighting installations than what you can get at a big-box store. Our lights are custom-made to look brighter while using less power.

What is a GFCI?

GFCI stands for a ground-fault circuit interrupter. This is a type of outlet used for outdoor use. If any moisture gets into the outlet, the circuit will trip and protect electrical equipment from damage. If your lights stop working unexpectedly, we can determine whether the outlet or the lights are to blame.
