Jay Maya started doing landscape lighting in Boca Raton, FL in Jan 1998. At first he did his home as a hobby and soon family members & neighbors wanted lighting too and their neighbors and so on… Jay got properly trained by a real pro in Tallahassee, Fl. Jay’s college roomate engineer Carlos Galavis. Jay’s friend Carlos has his own lighting company for over 20 yrs. Jay feels that if it’s done right the first time then it won’t need a second time re-do. A+ Illuminations (was Jay’s company name in Boca Raton, Florida years ago) it was fun but Jay left for North Carolina due to the intense heat of mid-summer. The business in Boca Raton rocketed for years but then came the recession of 2008 🙁
It was time to make the move to Asheville. Jay left all his clients with his older son Chris and do all helper friend Phil.
Jay is college educated with a bachelors in business marketing BA 🙂 worked with big banks and graduated to VP in his last banking job. Coat & tie got old after some years. Outdoor lighting seemed so much nicer after just a couple weekend jobs. Ended the banking business. Jay has also built every home he has lived in, including 2 in Asheville. A1+Illuminations is the legal self proprietor name of the business in Asheville, NC.
A1+ Illuminations services a 50 mile radius from Asheville. A special large job request somewhere else might be possible. LED technology has transformed the landscape lighting business radically by ease of installation. Fixtures just last for many years without changing any LED bulbs.
A1 doesn’t profit on light fixtures. Our hard earned profit comes from Great Designs and Installations. Jay is friendly and easy to get along with, not pushy.
WE don’t push more fixtures than need it ones , we don’t feel that by adding more fixtures to a good design will make it any better, in fact it can spoil it.
