Safe Ways to Hang Christmas Lights on Your Garage Door

Christmas is a time of great celebration and cheer. Many homeowners like to celebrate this by decorating their homes and garage with many different beautiful lights and decorations. This can be challenging at times and can be a lot of work, especially if you have a bigger home. Even sometimes, this process can be dangerous to your garage door. Here are a few tips to safely hang your Christmas lights on your garage door.

Avoid nails and staples – nails and staples can sound like a convenient way to put up Christmas lights. They save you time putting up lights but could lead to more damage from your garage door and more money out of your pocket in the future. If you put nails or staples in the trim, you could end up damaging the insulation which would cost you more in heating every month!

Try clips or hooks – clips and hooks are the safest way to hang lights on your garage door. These are easily attached to your garage door with an adhesive and can be placed on the trim with no worries. It also is a very secure way to keep Christmas lights on your garage door, so that is a win-win!

Get some help! – Putting up Christmas lights by yourself can be a dangerous job! It is a good idea to get someone to help you put them up so they can hold the string and keep them untangled and make the whole process safer for you!

Christmas lights are a must in the holiday season, but that does not mean you need to sacrifice your garage door’s integrity. Follow these simple steps and make your garage door shine this holiday season!
