In 2010 Ryan, our founder, was tired of hanging lights in the cold just to have to remove them a month later while still buried in ice and snow. He knew there had to be a better way. He researched diligently on how homes are constructed to see where the best place would be to install lights permanently and how best to do it. He knew that compromising the roof or gutters was not the right thing to do so eventually he determined that installing at the fascia line was by far the best option.
After much research, he found that any lights or wires that are heavily exposed to the harmful UV rays from the sun will fail relatively quickly and that directing the lights outward will only work for very few applications. He figured out that in order to keep the lights lasting for decades and to meet the life expectancy stated by manufacturers, pointing the lights down was the best design option. Once he determined the best light positioning, he experimented with several options on building materials and found the right shape, raw material type, and size that would seamlessly blend with the architecture but also give the lights the proper installation and ease of maintenance design.
With neighbors soon lining up to get more information, he realized the amazing potential and brought in some of his best friends to help launch Trimlight as a business. As of today Trimlight has grown exponentially with thousands of homes installed along the Wasatch front alone and over 40 dealerships have been established across the U.S. and Canada.
Although Trimlight has seen several adaptations as technology has improved and LEDs become more and more reliable over time, Trimlight continues to innovate and develop new and improved products every year. Trimlight’s goal is to light up America and eventually the world with our permanent, programmable lighting that can be customized for every holiday and special occasion all year, every year!
