We have been using Christmas Decor for 8 years to hang our exterior Christmas lights each holiday season. Although it is very expensive (I don't know what the comparables are), they do a much better job hanging the lights than I've seen other companies do. They frequently monitor their clients' houses to make sure there are no bulb outages and even work on Christmas Eve, Christmas Day and Boxing Day so that if a bulb goes out or there is a problem, they can be there to fix it. The guys that come to the house to do the set up and take down are all pleasant and trustworthy and they take much pride in what they do. The initial quote is very high as you must buy your lights AND pay for the installation but every year thereafter you only pay for the installation (they also store your lights for $60 per year). Our home always looks (dare I say, "the best"!?!) so beautiful every Christmas season and people always slow down or stop to admire our lights.
