Exterior Lighting - LGI Homes

The area lights around your new LGI home are for safety and aesthetics.  They may be controlled by photo cells mounted on the side of your house or on the light unit itself.  Your lighting may also be controlled by wall switches located in your home.

It is important to always use the correct bulbs.  Do not exceed the bulb wattage recommended for the fixture.  Use exterior light bulbs for exterior fixtures and wet location light bulbs appropriately.

Recommended Maintenance


  • Look for and replace burned out bulbs.


  • Clean the encasement so light can shine at full illumination.
  • Ensure that mounting screws and plates are tight and wall plate is fully against the exterior wall or soffit.  Inspect sealant at joints between light fixtures and walls.  Repair or replace the sealant as needed.

Effects of deferred maintenance such as water and lack of cleaning will diminish the attractiveness and function of exterior light fixtures.

Categories: Canyon Crossing, Creekside Village, Deer Creek, Fort Worth, Houston, LGI Homes, San Antonio, Sunrise Meadow No Comments »

Incase you missed out on the $8,000 tax credit that ended at the beginning of November, we have great news for you.  The $8,000 First-Time Homebuyer Tax Credit has been extended for an additional six months.  This is a great deal for those looking to buy their first home.  With the new additions to the tax credit extension, existing homeowners and repeat buyers may be eligible for a tax credit up to $6,500. 

This Tax Credit applies to homes contracted for sale between November 7, 2009 and April 30, 2010 and close by June 30, 2010.

They call it a tax credit, but it is really cash to you. When you submit your tax return you simply fill out a form to show you qualify for the credit and attach proof of purchase for the home. Then you get to take up to $8,000 right off your taxes.  Say you only owe $2,000 in taxes then you get the balance back from the government.  If you are already receiving a refund this credit will be added to the refund amount you receive.  Best of all this tax credit does not have to be paid back.

With today’s historic low interest rates hundreds of families are finding they can own a brand new home for less than they are paying in rent.  At LGI Homes we have new homes starting as low as $599 per month.

LGI Homes is the leader in affordable housing for First-Time Homebuyers.  With communities in Houston, San Antonio, and Fort Worth, LGI Homes has the perfect home for you and your family available for immediate move in.

“I would like to take a brief moment of your time to tell you thank you so much for all the hard work you and LGI Homes have done for us.  My family and I will be forever indebted to you for making our dream become a possibility.  When nobody else took the extra setp for us, you did.  When nobody would make that extra call, you did.  When we were tired and didn’t think we could even buy a home you helped us be strong and stick it through.  Now we are enjoying our beautiful new home and starting a whole new chapter in our family.  Thank you so much for continuing to be there even after we closed. You are a true definition of complete customer service and satisfaction.”
