Raul S. says, "I am writing to recommend Stive Tobias and his company Tobias Costruction for additional construction services with future prospective clients. I have had the pleasure of working directly with Mr. Tobias on a number of projects in the past and most recently at plum creek project located in Buda tx The scope of work for this project No. 1 for future occupancy of the Tobias Costruction scope of work involves miscellaneous metals works, carpentry and general labor. Tobias Costruction has illustrated their attention to detail, quality and safety on a number of occasions. It is the policy of this company to strive for the highest safety standards. Working safely requires a serious commitment by everyone within the organization including our subcontractors. Mr. Tobias has met and exceeded our safety program. Scheduling within the construction industry is typically an art form in itself and Mr. Tobias has been able to effectively meet project schedule requirements. He and his crew have been able to quickly adapt to schedule changes from other subcontractors in order to keep his schedule on time and aligned with the overall project schedule. In addition, Tobias Costruction has been exceptionally accommodating when dealing with unforeseen conditions and potential change orders. Please consider Tobias Construction for your construction service needs. I recommend them and look forward to working with them again."See more

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

How much does it cost to have someone hang your Christmas lights?

It will likely cost between $200 and $400 to hire someone to hang your Christmas lights and holiday decorations. For an accurate cost estimate, ask installers near you to give you a price quote. Let them know if you need them to supply the lights, how many you want to hang and other details about this project.

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. 

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.

What is the best way to hang Christmas lights on your house?

The best way to hang Christmas lights on your house is to use some type of light clip (sometimes called gutter clips). To help ensure your safety, however, consider hiring a professional installer who has experience with hanging Christmas lights, handling electrical cords and using ladders.

How many feet of Christmas lights do you need for a house?

You’ll need to measure your house to figure out how many Christmas lights you need. Some homeowners may want to start with 60 feet of lights — or 200 feet. You can take the guesswork out of it by hiring a professional installer or handy person to help you measure and install your lights.

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.
