Over the past few years the use of string and rope style lights for exterior accent lighting and for holiday displays has been on the increase. The most recent Eldorado Covenants and Guidelines do not address these types of lighting, but such lighting can be very bright and usually is not downward shielded.

While a favorite with roofers, and homeowners alike, this very bright white can be a visual nuisance to any neighbors who have direct visibility of such a roof. (See photo below of an example of such a roof.)
