Quality Christmas light installation products
At St. Nick's, we pride ourselves on using high-quality holiday lighting products. Unlike many of our competitors who purchase the cheapest Christmas lights and installation clips from local hardware stores like Home Depot or Walmart, we use only UL-listed 5mm WAC, M5, T7, C6, C7, and C9 Christmas light bulbs that have been tested for safe consumer use indoors and outdoors.
In America, approximately 150 million sets of lights are sold each year to illuminate millions of homes during the holiday season. Unfortunately, most of these lights have a short lifespan and are not suitable for high-quality holiday displays, which is why professional installers do not favor them. However, St. Nick's uses Professional LED Christmas Lights that are not sold in retail stores but are ideal for both professional and casual home use.
It is worth noting that many retail stores still sell traditional incandescent mini lights, which consume 90% more energy than the newest generation of LED Christmas lights. With a lifespan that is three times longer, you will ultimately save a significant amount of money and have a light set that can endure even the harshest winter conditions we face here in Portland and Vancouver
Custom Cut Christmas Lights
At St. Nick's, we employ commercial-grade products for all of our installations, primarily because they offer unparalleled customization capabilities. Every one of our holiday light displays is custom-tailored to complement the distinctive architecture of each home. You may be wondering what we mean by "custom Christmas lights."
Residential Holiday Lighting Designed with Style
Retail-sold Christmas lights are not considered "Custom Christmas Lights" because they are pre-assembled by manufacturers. However, professional holiday light installers have the luxury of creating any bulb variation, cutting any length of light strand, and retrofitting displays as they see fit. This flexibility results in a seamless roofline installation without the need to conceal additional socket wire that wouldn't otherwise fit. To ensure the safety of our technicians, the installation process begins at the farthest point from the power source so that all female and male socket wire connections are made without any exposure to hot wires. Finally, we include an 18-gauge extension cord and outdoor timer to power the display from an exterior outlet once all the lighting has been cut to fit the home.
The Best Types of Christmas Light Clips
When it comes to installing Christmas light strands on rooflines, we rely on a specific type of clip called a circle clip, also known as a best clip or tuff clip. These clips are inserted before the bulb is screwed into the socket wire. To streamline our work process, we pre-attach tuff clips to the strands we intend to use for roofline installations and screw the bulbs into the socket wire before arriving at the job site. Tuff clips are the industry's top choice for roofline and gutter clips and are known for their ability to withstand harsh weather conditions such as strong winds, heavy rain, and snow.
For metal roofs, we use magnetic clips that wrap around the socket wire and rest on the bottom of the Christmas light socket.
When it comes to the peak of a roof, we utilize ridge cap clips that straddle the peak to ensure the lights are facing in a uniform direction.
For landscape lighting, we use stake clips designed to wrap the lights evenly around your lawn or pathway
We also make use of shingle clips, which are designed to slide underneath the roof shingles and are perfect for areas of the roof without a gutter line.
Residential roofline Christmas light installations can be categorized into different types:
- Basic installation: lights are installed along the gutter lines.
- Classic installation: lights are installed along the gutter lines and up the ridge lines.
- Premier installation: lights are installed along the gutter lines, up the ridge lines, and across the peaks.
- Premium installation: lights are installed along the gutter lines, up the ridge lines, across the peaks, and on dormers
