As your skin can tell you, the sun can cause a lot of damage if you are exposed for too long. Think about how much damage could happen to your outdoor lights if they stay exposed to the elements 24/7. These weather resistant outdoor lights are built to withstand extreme weather conditions.
These weather-resistant materials are especially useful for coastal homes due to the salty, humid wind. Father time is the only undefeated champion, but weather-resistant outdoor post lights can at least slow him down for a few more years.
Lighting to fight back against elements! Most outdoor lights are not designed to withstand the demands of coastal areas or extreme weather conditions. Brass or steel lights will rust and humidity and salt get under the finish and corrode the metal. Cast aluminum will not rust, but the finish flakes off due to the humidity and salt. The best options are:
Solid Copper with special weather resistant coating. Stamped Brass with special weather resistant coating. Resin fixtures that cannot rust or corrode.
While nobody guarantees the finish more than 1-3 years, these lights are built to provide many years of solid performance.
