As we head into the new year, many homeowners will resolve to put home improvement on their resolution list. Exterior lights are not only important for security and safety; they can add equity and beauty to your home. If you need more reasons why now is an excellent time to hire exterior lighting companies, these are just a few!

High Rate of Return

When it comes to home improvement, the key is to make sure that you will get back the money you put into your home. Exterior lighting upgrades have a rate of return of about 50%, so not only will you be making your home prettier and more functional, you will be making improvements that will build equity should you want to sell in the future. It is always a good idea to research whether your costs are worth it; with exterior lighting, the answer is “Yes!”

Enhanced Security

Exterior lighting is a great way to deter would-be wrongdoers from seeing your home as a target. Criminals are more apt to pass on a home that is lit up with the potential that they can be spotted whether you are home or not. At Gleam Electrical, we have many options to choose from, from floodlights to beautiful lanterns, depending on the look you are seeking. Whatever light you choose to light up your dark areas, you will feel safer knowing that you are reducing the risk of becoming a victim!


Now that the days are shorter and the mornings and evenings are dark, lights will help keep you and your family safe. When adding outdoor lights, you have to walk a fine line between being secure and being overpowering. At Gleam Electrical, we offer a variety of types and styles of exterior and security lighting to cover all of your bases, from entryway welcome lights to motion-sensor bright lights for backyard and driveway spaces.

Improve Aesthetics

The first and last impression that you make upon your guests rests on the curb appeal that your home displays. If you want to showcase the best of your home’s appeal and your landscaping, exterior lighting can help to add appeal and beauty to your front view, side areas, and backyard. From dusk to dawn, outdoor lighting can light up your most wonderful outdoor areas.

As we head into the new year, many people will resolve to add equity to their home’s value and upgrade to increase the overall appeal. Adding exterior lighting is a great way to increase your home’s value, keep you and your family safe, and provide a much more welcoming feel for guests throughout the upcoming year.
