5 Biggest Mistakes Customers Make When Purchasing a Lighthouse

Hey there lighthouse enthusiasts. I’m here to guide you through the common pitfalls people often make when buying their lawn lighthouse. Will help you make the right choice that will elevate your outdoor space. Trust me, avoiding these blunders will save you time, money, and headaches in the long run.

So let’s get started with the 5 Biggest Mistakes Customers Make When Purchasing a Lighthouse.

Mistake #5: The Lowest Price Trap

Don’t fall into the trap of buying the cheapest lighthouse option out there. Remember, you truly get what you pay for. The Lighthouse Man is your go to for superior quality in lighthouse craftsmanship. With over 25 years of experience, we offer a diverse range of lighthouses catering to every budget and design preference. You can be confident that you’ll find something that aligns perfectly with your desires, and fits your pocket book.

Mistake #4: Big Box Store Blues

Beware of big-box stores and their mass-produced lighthouses imported from China. These products are only seasonal, available for a mere 4-6 months before vanishing, leaving you stranded and helpless if you need replacement parts or service. Don’t let a broken lighthouse ruin your outdoor oasis weeks after installation. Invest in a reputable manufacturer like The Lighthouse Man who values after-sales support and has you covered.

Mistake #3: Roadside Crafter Conundrum

Curbside lighthouses may catch your eye, but proceed with caution. While charming, these lighthouses often lack the support of established manufacturers. In case of issues or repairs, you’ll struggle to find replacement parts or services.  Thus, think about this practically. If something goes wrong or if you need help, who will you turn to?  It’s crucial to choose a well-established manufacturer that values customer satisfaction and provides ongoing support

Mistake #2: DIY Dilemma

Sure, building your own lighthouse can be a fun project if you’re handy and enjoy crafting. However, if your primary goal is to save money, please think twice. I must warn you that taking the DIY route may end up costing you a lot more. The Lighthouse Man offers budget-friendly lighthouses made of durable materials like wood and poly, saving you the hassle of sourcing materials and the time spent on construction.  Plus, the cost of materials like high-quality plywood and marine paint can quickly add up.

And Now for the Number 1# Mistake

Undersized Lighthouses

Size Mismatch Mishap or Undersized Lighthouses is by far the most common blunder that many buyers make. The proportions matter when choosing a lighthouse. Don’t underestimate the visual impact of a lighthouse in your outdoor space. It shouldn’t get lost or overshadowed by your plants or shrubs.  For example, a 3’ lighthouse in a flower bed or rose garden can get lost amidst towering plants and shrubs, creating a disproportionate look.  Always select a lighthouse taller than your plants or surrounding items, to ensure it stands out as a focal point in your space.  A lighthouse should stand tall and proud, adding a majestic touch to your lawn or garden.

Simply put, size absolutely matters!

So, there you have it, folks! These are the five common pitfalls to avoid when purchasing your dream lighthouse.
