    Did you get a quote already?
    Yes, not cheap. About $3000 just for the front. But that's the main level with a big peak over the garage, then the upper level with 2 peaks.

    It's not the size that matters, it's the taste it leaves in your mouth.

    The Gemstones are a couple levels higher-end than the DIY LED strips. each light is 3 4-colour LEDs in a plastic housing, facing down. Great look from the street, plus facing down illuminates the house/ground as well, making them great for other applications than Christmas. Nicely spaced in an aluminum track that matches the soffits, and hides all wiring.
    They are wired with multiple power feeds, so the end sections are just as bright as the sections near the power source.

    Not defending the price, no affiliation to the company, they're still way more expensive than they should be, just saying they're considerably more than the cheap Chinese strips.2019-11-23 13.18.06.jpg

    Soon. Once the install is finished. A section of the roof was not safely accessible with the recent snow. Probably Monday.

    I was getting ads for these on Facebook, was always curious how much they costed. Holy shit, didn’t think it was $21 a foot! I just wrapped my house with c6 LEDs and used 7 boxes * 33 feet... if I went with this it would have cost me over 5 grand.

    That said if I was wealthy I definitely would do it, but seems way out of reach for middle class people.

    Did they give an estimate as to your install date?
    Mine was supposed to be today but I’m guessing the snow will delay that

    I had trimlights installed last year. Love the product. They are much better than the LED strips i had previously. The install was quick but i do have to say the setup and demo was something to be desired. Overall pretty satisfied.

    That said, i am pissed that i am moving this year so basically i tossed money away as it provides almost ZERO resale value.

    Installer came back yesterday with a bucket unit to finish the high spots.
    A couple quick pics last night. I think the long exposure makes the ambient light look a bit brighter than it really is.
