Answering Frequently Asked Questions

Why Does My Revolving Beacon Rotate In Different Directions2024-06-17T03:33:59-04:00

This is totally normal as your revolving beacon is designed with a bi-directional motor so that if it feels tension or binding, it will stop and rotate in the opposite direction. This prevents the motor from burning out and keeps your beacon running smoothly. Therefore, you may notice that one time you turn it on it will rotate clockwise, while the next time it rotates counter-clockwise.

Why is My Rotating Beacon Not Revolving2023-12-29T16:04:40-05:00

More than likely, there are three possible reasons for your rotating beacon not to be revolving. Firstly, it could be that the beacon has been overtightened to the junction box, preventing it from turning freely. Secondly, the nut on the bottom of the beacon could have come loose and the gears are no longer lined up. Lastly, the motor may have burned out and needs to be replaced.

How do I Alter the Revolving Beacon to Fit Inside my Lighthouse Light Kit2023-12-29T16:06:31-05:00

Here is a video explaining how to alter the beacon to fit inside light kit 01:

We also included PDF instructions here: Beacon Alteration Directions

Are your Lighthouses Hollow?2023-11-22T09:58:59-05:00

Our Poly, Hybrid, and Wooden Lighthouses are all hollow.

Our Stucco Lighthouses are not hollow.  However, if you purchase our Rock Base accessory you can cover something with this and then attach the Stucco Lighthouse to the Rock Base.

Do you Have interior Dimensions for your Poly Lighthouses ?2024-06-17T03:33:32-04:00

Yes please follow this size chart for details.

What are the Dimensions of your Poly Lighthouses?2024-06-17T03:32:35-04:00

Yes please follow our dimensional size chart for our Poly Lighthouses.

If we add a Base to our Poly Lighthouse Will the Overall Height Increase?2024-06-17T03:31:30-04:00

Yes If you add an optional Poly Base it will increase the overall height of your lighthouse.  Below is a size chart to help.  So for example if you order a 5′ Lighthouse and then get the optional base the lighthouse will now be 5′ 10″.

Lighthouse Size

Do your Lighthouses Come with a Light?2024-01-26T09:22:07-05:00

Yes, EVERY Lighthouse we sell comes standard with a regular electric light with a 40 watt bulb.   You will also get 8′ of exterior grade wire and plug that you can plug into any standard outlet.

Now you can always upgrade and add additional Lighting Accessories like:  Revolving Beacons, Solar Beacons, Electric Fresnel Lens ,or Low Voltage Lighthing.

What are the Differences Between the Revolving Beacons?2024-06-17T03:31:02-04:00

The difference is the top housing and the revolutions or flashes per minute. 🌟

So this is what I always tell my customers.  If you are going for authenticity and you want a slow revolving beacon then go with the Deluxe Beacon or the Liteman Beacon.  As these beacons have 2 mirror backers and one bullet fresnel lens. 🔥

If you want a faster or brighter light then go with the Beacon 01 as this has more flashes per minute and more light output.   Usually businesses go for this option as they want to draw attention to their store front or booth at a trade show.

Please watch the videos on our Revolving Beacon Page to for more details and watch them in action: 💥

What is the Differences Between the Deluxe and the Liteman Beacon?2023-12-29T16:09:52-05:00

The difference is the Deluxe Beacon is powder coated Black in color and also features a motor on/off switch.  🔥

Thus with the deluxe you have the option of turning off the beacon motor and having just a stationary light and then turn it back on and have a revolving beacon.

You kind of get the best of both worlds with this option.  Or if your not sure you would like a revolving beacon then the Deluxe is perfect because then you can turn it on or off whenever you would like.

Please watch the videos on our Revolving Beacon Page for more details and watch them in action: 💥

How do you pack your Lighthouses?2023-12-05T11:40:27-05:00

We have specially made boxes that were designed specifically for our lighthouses.   📦

We use a double wall 275lbs crush test box and totally encase the lighthouse with foam for shipping safety. 🚐

We take great pride in our shipping, and we over pack everything. 😆

What Style Lighthouse Do You Recommend?2024-01-26T08:33:45-05:00

This is what I always tell my customer: 😃

If you are going for authencity and you want the WOW factor then 100% go for the Deluxe Stucco Lighthouses.  🔥
These lighthouses are by far the BEST quality lighthouses on the market guaranteed.

Now if you do not care so much about authenticity and you are looking for 100% maintenance free our Poly Lighthouses would be a great option.

Now something to note with the Deluxe Stucco lighthouses that really seperate it from all others is that in 10 years from now you can totally refurbish and re-paint your lighthouse and make it look like the day you got it.  💥

Please Note you can NOT do this with the poly lighthouses.  Poly lighthouses are not painted as the color is infused in the product during the manufacturing process, thus once the colors fade over time there is NOTHING you can do to bring it back to the original color.

What Paint do you Use on your Stucco Lighthouses?2023-12-05T11:50:52-05:00

We only use high gloss Marine Paint from Sherwin Williams.   In my opinion this is the best quality marine paint on the market. 🔥

How do I Attach the Plastic Windows and Door to my Lighthouse?2023-12-29T14:50:32-05:00

Hey there lighthouse lovers! Have you just received your new E-Line Stucco Lighthouse? Awesome! Now lets install those plastic windows and doors.

I totally get the temptation to just slap them on randomly, but take it from me, a little prep will make a big difference. Here’s my 3 easy tips:

1. Lightly sand the back of each window and door. This roughs up the surface so the glue can grip better.

2. Warm up the plastic with a hairdryer on hot, and bend to shape over your arm. Get them good and curved before they cool off.

3. Use a clear drying glue like Gorilla Super Glue Gel. Run a bead around each piece and attach to the lighthouse.

Once glued in place, put some painter’s tape strips over the windows and doors while drying. The green frog tape sticks best!

Now stand back and admire those custom placed windows and doors! Let me know if you have any other questions – I love helping fellow lighthouse builders. Your unique creation is going to look awesome!

Do Lawn Ornaments Come With a Warranty?2024-01-26T09:59:08-05:00

The Short Answer is: Unfortunately, No.

To elaborate, the Lighthouse Man stands behind the superior craftsmanship and quality of our products, but warranties in our industry is just unheard of, and no lawn ornament manufacturer has ever or would ever consider providing a warranty due to two primary factors that are totally out of our control:

Number 1) Mother Nature’s Unpredictability.

Unforeseen Acts of Nature: These encompass a wide range of phenomena way beyond our control. From strong winds and hurricanes causing damage to excessive rainfall leading to floods, we have no way to predict or stop these extreme events.

Nature’s Course: Even in the absence of extreme weather events, the natural process of aging and wear is inevitable for ALL products, including our lawn ornaments. Wood, metal, and plastics are susceptible to degradation over time.

Number 2)  Customer Usage and Maintenance:

Modifications and Improper Usage: Some customers modify our products in various ways, altering their intended design and potentially compromising their integrity. This can lead to issues that we cannot foresee or be held responsible for.

Lack of Regular Maintenance: Like any outdoor product, our lawn ornaments require occasional maintenance – repainting, resealing, or tightening screws. Neglecting these basic upkeep tasks can lead to problems that could have been easily prevented.

Misconception about Maintenance-Free:

To clarify, “maintenance-free” does not equate to “no maintenance.” It means our products are designed to withstand outdoor elements and retain their beauty with minimal upkeep. Regular inspections and occasional care are still essential to ensure their longevity.

Dispelling the Lifetime Warranty Myth:

The Lighthouse Man steers clear of misleading customers into believing our products carry a lifetime warranty. “Maintenance-free” DOES NOT equate to Lifetime warranty “indestructible.” Even premium materials like marine wood, marine paint, and poly lumber have their limits against the relentless onslaught of time and elements.

The Lighthouse Man’s Commitment:

We take pride in our craftsmanship and strive to deliver high-quality lawn ornaments that enhance your outdoor spaces. While we cannot offer warranties, we ensure our products are built to last and provide you with the best possible value. Remember, a little care and maintenance go a long way in preserving the charm of your lawn ornaments for years to come.

Please note that this information is provided to ensure transparency and manage customer expectations accurately. Should you have additional questions, our dedicated customer support team is always ready to assist you.

How do I secure or anchor down my lighthouse to the ground?2024-01-26T08:55:49-05:00

All of our lighthouses have a base plate and this is how you can secure it to any surface.
When anchoring it to the ground you can do something as easy as using garden stakes or tent stakes and staking it to the ground.

For a more permanent or theft deterrent solution you can always pour a concrete slab and lag-bolt it to the slab.

When anchoring to a wooden boat dock or deck you can simply just screw it fast.

Alternatively,  some of our customers have purchased a large 24″ patio pavers and have adhered or use tapcons to secure the lighthouse to the paver.

Or if you do not want to be bothered with any of this then you can always upgrade and order one of our rock bases and easily secure it to this.
Click Here to view our Rock Bases.

Again, you will use the lighthouse base plate to anchor to ANY surface.

What is Poly?2024-01-27T13:06:02-05:00

Poly is a material made from recycled plastic products like milk jugs, water bottles, etc.

This is then manufactured to look just like real lumber, but none of the Maintenance. 💥

That’s correct you get the look of real wood without the upkeep.😃

Not only do our poly lighthouses look just as good as our wooden lighthouses, but the choice of a man made poly lighthouse is also environmentally friendly.

Another added feature of our poly lighthouses is never worrying about splinters, cracking, or paint fading

The Color is embedded throughout the poly, resulting in vibrant, lasting colors. 

When you receive a poly lighthouse ornament from the Lighthouse Man, you get the highest quality weather-resistant product to last you a lifetime of enjoyment.

Poly is a 100% maintenance free product, built to last a lifetime! 👍

It will not splinter, crack, or fade and needs NO painting.  The color penetrates deeply throughout the product instead of just a surface coat, so scratches will not even show.

Poly lumber is made from recycled plastic milk jugs otherwise destined for a landfill. Using plastic lumber helps the environment and provides a long lasting, maintenance-free product.  🌏

Our poly is resistant to insects, termites, boring worms, microbe activities, and wet rot found in outdoor environments. 👏

Poly will also never split, splinter, or rot like real wood.  It does not absorb moisture or promote bacterial or barnacle growth. 

This weather proofing resistance is accomplished without any hazardous chemicals like those utilized in the pressure treated wood. Detailed laboratory testing proves there is NO leaching or release of chemicals into the soil or marine environments.
