Learn the secrets of quality outdoor lighting

While it’s important to read reviews before buying quality lights online, there are many things to consider before making your purchase. First, what is the purpose of your new lights? Second, what type of bulbs and/or wattage do I need? And lastly, how do I know if the lights I’m purchasing are good quality? It’s no secret that good lighting is part of a great design, which is why we’ve listed three further considerations for you to look into before proceeding to the checkout. 

Quality lights are made from durable materials 

Your home or businesses’ outdoor lighting should exhibit more than just vibrant illumination, it should also flaunt reliability and durability in its materials. Best Pro Lighting is in line with this statement, as we believe that quality lights aren’t something that should be to be replaced after a few years. All of our light fixtures are contractor grade, which means they’re manufactured from high-quality metal materials. Their study and strong design make it easy to withstand all types of elements, and the tempered and heat-resistant clear glass protects the bulb from immediate exposure. Some even come with a rugged ground stake which also improves the overall quality of the lights, making it easier to position the fixture while also giving it some height to protect it from an influx of water or snow.  

Quality lights are waterproof

There are very few places in the world where you won’t experience a vast change in precipitation and temperature year-round which is why it’s important to purchase waterproof fixtures. Quality lighting that’s both aesthetic and waterproof can be hard to come by, but since most fixtures spend their days exposed to the elements, waterproof resistance is essential to ensure optimum performance and longevity. 

While all of the lights on our website are waterproof, customers often get confused interchanging the words “waterproof” and “water-resistant”. So, let us break the difference down for you. A quality light that’s waterproof means that it can be submerged in a reasonable amount of water and still operate as usual. However, a water-resistant light is only protected against water splashes, meaning that these fixtures still require a degree of coverage from overwhelming elements. 

Quality lights should come with a good warranty 

If you’re purchasing light fixtures that aren’t equipped with a warranty, you’re taking a risk that could have you ending up with a lemon light. High-quality light retailers know the trust that comes when they stamp their products with a good warranty. Not only does it show that you have faith in what you sell but it also reassures your customers that if something happens in a reasonable amount of time after their purchasing, it’s fully covered under warranty. 

Our warranty covers defects in material and workmanship under normal use, with all quality lights including a five-year warranty, and transformers are given a lifetime warranty. If your fixture, bulb, or transformer is defective at this time, we will repair or replace it at no charge. 

*Please note that we do recommend cleaning and grease applications to ensure longevity with your fixtures. Our warranty does not cover erosion or oxidation caused by environmental factors.
