How Do I Hang Christmas Lights in a Metal Clad Home?
With the holiday season right around the corner, many homeowners want to decorate their homes with festive lights. But, if you own a metal-clad home, there can be some unique challenges to overcome when you try to hang your Christmas lights.
While a metal-clad home may present unique challenges, you can still hang your Christmas lights easily. Follow the tips below to help you get the job done right.
Use Clips, Hooks, or Adhesive Strips
Adding clips, hooks, or adhesive strips is the simplest method for adding lights to your metal-clad home. Clips, hooks, and adhesive strips can be easily attached to your metal siding, allowing you to hang your Christmas lights without any problems. When selecting clips or hooks, ensure they are suitable for metal surfaces. There are magnetic and plastic options, both of which will work well.
Use an Outdoor Projector
Using a laser projector can make the job much easier. Outdoor projectors are easily set up and quickly cover the entire exterior of your home. Most laser projectors are highly customizable and can create hundreds of unique lighting effects throughout the year.
Decorate a Tree or Stairways
If you don’t want to mess with the siding of your metal-clad home, consider decorating a tree or stairways near your house instead. Decorating your property can still give your home a festive appearance without having to worry about hanging lights on your metal siding.
Follow these tips this holiday season to easily hang Christmas lights on your metal-clad home. With a little time and effort, you can create a festive atmosphere that will bring joy to everyone in your neighbourhood.
