"Vin installed our Christmas lights on our house. He did a wonderful job. Cost was competitive with other pros, except his job included removal.
The whole job took longer than we both anticipated. About 6-7 hours spread over two days. This was my first time lighting our house. I ended up having to make an urgent trip to buy more lights, power strips, and a bunch of extension cords. If you end up doing a job similar to this, ask Vin to do an initial estimate of the stuff you’ll need so you can run out and get it while he starts work.
Vin sold me extra icicle lights he had, which was super handy. We used them across the gutters at the house. He consulted on what we should do and what would look good. He even suggested that we light the bushes at no extra cost because there were some delays due to lack of availability of renting a ladder tall enough for our roof.
If I had one critique of Vin, it would be that he could be better at communicating his updates and showing up on time. All in all, I would definitely recommend him. I’ll be keeping his number handy for future jobs."
