Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

What do you use to hang Christmas lights outside?

If you want to hang up Christmas lights (or other holiday light fixtures) outdoors, you’ll need the following: 

  • Christmas and holiday lights
  • Extension cords
  • Gloves
  • Gutter clips
  • Ladder
  • Power stakes
  • Tape measure 

Instead of hanging the Christmas lights yourself, you can hire a professional installer to take care of this project for you.

When should you hang Christmas lights?

There’s no set rule of when you should or shouldn’t hang your Christmas lights. Some homeowners wait until after Halloween or Thanksgiving. Others may choose to hang them a few weeks before Christmas or at the beginning of December. 

How much do I tip Christmas light installers?

How much you tip an installer who hangs your Christmas and holiday lighting is up to your discretion. Some people prefer to tip about 20% for services, while others may choose to tip anywhere from $20-$50. It’s up to you how much you choose to tip.

I highly recommend J and E Shine. They installed our holiday lights this year and we were very impressed. They were professional and prompt, measures and placed the lights with care. When we noticed one light out they came quickly to replace it free of charge.

It was great working with Peter! He was prompt with his responses leading up to the job. He installed Christmas lights on our house and they look great and we are ready for the holidays! He even executed a last-minute idea we had to frame out a window with the lights. Peter was friendly, communicative, professional, and got the job done quickly. Looking forward to seeing him again when he takes down the lights.

All Out Services did an excellent job with my roof maintenance, gutter cleaning and exterior holiday lights installation! They responded to my search quickly and were able to make it out to my house within a few days. They were punctual, friendly, professional and it was a great value! I will absolutely hire All Out Services again.

Mario came out and gave me an estimate promptly. He showed up on time and did excellent work (with a lot of attention to detail) at a reasonable price. He washed my exterior windows, did some roof maintenance, cleaned my gutters and installed holiday lights beautifully. I’m so happy with his work. I will use him again and recommend him highly!

We received multiple bids for gutter cleaning and Christmas light installation, and chose CWAGS, LLC and Josh Burt. They weren't the cheapest. They were the most responsive - initially. Ironically, I hired them for what I thought was their refreshing professionalism. CWAGS installed the lights but "forgot" to clean the gutters. Literally put lights on leave filled gutters. So, Josh promised to come out two days later to complete the job. Didn't show. I called him again and he promised to come out the next day. Didn't show. This happened literally FIVE times. Promise & no-show. They never called, never re-scheduled. Every time I had to follow up and every time Josh made an excuse and every time Josh promised to deliver the next day. He never did. SO UNPROFESSIONAL. Leaves are backed up in the gutter, in some places leaves cover the Christmas lights (not the crisp clean holiday look you pay hundreds for) and leaves are causing rain water to overflow around the house, including above the front door on Thanksgiving! Josh continually lied to me. Took my money without delivering as contracted. This has been going on for weeks and I haven't written a review because I really wanted this to all work out. However, Josh stopped responding altogether so I've given up. My review: Quality is terrible. Timeliness is terrible. Professionalism is terrible. DON'T TRUST CWAGS or JOSH. Save yourself the headache and the rip-off.
