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.

I was able to have my holiday lights installed within 5 days of initially contacting Cole Family Construction. The team showed up early and had the lights up within a couple of hours. They were both friendly and very helpful. I received pictures once the job was completed. A couple of my lights went out and the they came back the next day with no hesitation to get it fixed. Very satisfied with the job and responsiveness! I would use this company again and recommend to anyone looking for holiday light installation.

If you are looking for professional, punctual and courteous installation service with a great value, Vitality Christmas Lighting is the best. George and his crew were on time for the job and did a comprehensive installation with quality lights that are super bright. This is my first house and first custom light installation. I’m so thankful that I entrusted George and Vitality Christmas Lighting to make my house into a beautiful home for the holidays. Thank you George and crew! 🥰🙏🏽
