Thank you for the kind words. Lighting outside is much different than inside as in our designs we use a lot of reflection as our lighting source. The time to talk to anyone prior to lighting placement is in the planter layout phase or when you are designing the space. Your designer should be able to incorporate the lighting in the design phase. Outlets are important but in this modern day and age...low voltage lighting is the way to go when doing anything outside such as a rooftop or deck. Fyi... an Electrician is not needed to run low voltage lighting. The Lighting abilities are endless, the process is fast and it is the safest way to light up an area such as you see here. Thanks again for the compliment and good luck on your project.

Thank you so much for your time with this detailed response. I'm clueless about the lighting, so it's good to know the low voltage lighting will not require an electrician. That's good news! Thanks again!

that is kind of a loaded question as it is all about the fabric, location and exposure to the sun. The fabric choices are Sunbrella or O'bravia and both have warranties. Both commercial grade material and frame is aluminum.
