How to install exterior flood light on existing house?

Posted by mchaney1 (My Page) on

We just finished our basement and had the electrician run a wire to the outside of our house to use for a floodlight. The wire is currently just sticking out of a hole in the siding just above the basement ceiling height. Do you have any ideas on the best way to run the wire to the top of our 2 story house? Should we just attach conduit to the side of the house and run through there? (That is what one electrician suggested) Or are there any other better solutions that may look better that we have not thought of?

Thanks in advance.

Given the present conditions the conduit is certainly the simplest option. Have you, however, considered low level site lighting instead of flood lighting? Bollards and such can do a very good job with much less glare and no ugly conduit climbing up your wall.
