About The Illuminators

We, The Illuminators, strive to set the outdoor lighting industry standard when it comes to quality and professionalism. How can we do this? It’s simple. Outdoor lighting is all we do – it’s our passion! We have chosen outdoor lighting as our niche market. That gives us a competitive edge over the many companies such as landscapers, pavers, brick-layers, seal-coaters, power-washers, gutter-cleaners, deck-builders, electricians, irrigators and anyone one else that just offers outdoor or landscape lighting as an afterthought or add-on of their main business. We use many techniques in our lighting design plans that are not used, studied or understood by many of our competitors. The Illuminators also specialize in repairing and maintaining all types of outdoor lighting whether we originally installed it or not.


The Illuminators have over 50 years of combined design and installation experience in the outdoor and landscape lighting industry. Our vast experience gives us an edge over the many competing companies that come and go each year in our industry. Our unique experience, knowledge, tools and skills gained from many successful years in the outdoor lighting industry allow us to continue to thrive and grow year to year. The Illuminators has grown to be the premier top-rated outdoor and landscape lighting company in the greater Chicagoland and Northern Illinois area.


The Illuminators philosophy is simple: provide complete customer satisfaction from start to finish! We accomplish this by working closely with you throughout the whole design and installation process as well as offering the highest quality lighting products and systems on the market today. All of the lighting fixtures and transformers represented and installed by The Illuminators are backed by industry leading manufacturer warranties (most fixtures carry a lifetime warranty). Also, all installations performed by The Illuminators come with our own complete comprehensive warranty on materials and workmanship. We want you to be absolutely happy with your new outdoor lighting. Our goal is to make you a valued customer for life!

Good Ideas

  1. It is a good idea to have your existing outdoor landscape lighting system professionally maintained 1 - 2 times a year to protect your original investment and to prevent service issues over time.

  2. Save green by going green. LED landscape lighting systems dramatically reduce the impact on the environment due to the big savings in energy and installation costs. LED outdoor lighting systems use much less copper wire, smaller transformers and basically no lamp replacments.

  3. LED bulb replacement is almost non-existent. LED landscape lighting bulbs are rated to last 25,000 - 70,000 hours depending on the manufacturer. Normal 12V halogen bulbs are usually rated between 1,000 - 10,000 hours.

We Retrofit Halogen Bulbs

The Illuminators installed LED retrofit bulbs into a customer's existing deck (puck) lights because their halogen bulbs were causing too much heat and caused the fixtures to be hot to the touch. After installing the LED bulbs the customer was happy to report that the heat problem had been solved.
