What are Advantages of Built-in Deck Lighting?


Built-in lighting provides you with an easy method of clearly illuminating deck stairs and levels.  Prevent tripping over a single step up or down on your deck by using stair riser lighting along the step.



Built-in lighting uses energy efficient LED lighting to brighten up the areas you need lit.  Deck lighting can be installed to have separate controls for different sections of your deck.  You won’t need to spend unnecessary money on burning flood lights that cover the entire back yard.



Built-in lighting provides the right balance of light for the activity.  Looking for a quiet evening around the firepit? Turn on only the stair riser lights.  Want to encourage more interaction at a company dinner party?  Turn on all the deck lights for higher visibility.
