The Lighting Geek Experience

We guarantee complete customer satisfaction and welcome your feedback throughout the entire process. We want our customers to feel comfortable, never hesitating to ask questions as they arise.

Initial Consultation & Site Survey

We’ll start with a phone call to discuss your project and then schedule an initial consultation at your property. We listen closely to our clients and enjoy collaborating to create your dream environment. We will conduct a site survey to gather the information necessary to develop a custom proposal.

Demonstration, Plan Development, & Proposal Approval

We’ll introduce you to a wide range of options and we encourage feedback on what fits your own sense of style. Then, based on your needs and budget, we translate your vision into a complete estimate of the work proposed.


We use only the highest quality lighting fixtures and use uncompromised installation procedures. If needed, we will even develop custom installation methods to achieve the best illumination possible. Our end-to-end attention to detail will mold your home and/or landscape into your personal paradise.

Order Completion & On-Going Follow Up

From concept to creation, we have a single goal in mind – your complete satisfaction. We warranty our workmanship for one year and offer a minimum of 10 year warranty on the fixtures we install.
