area light replacement


I just replaced my area light on our acreage. It's about 20+ feet in the air. We had a friend who is a lineman come out and help us install it. Yesterday we had high winds and the bulb and housing (shade) fell off and shattered. Can I replace just this part or do I need to get a new light and completely rewire the whole thing?

You should be able to, as long as it is not some odd Chinese made unit.

Where could I/should I look for it? I bought it at HD and I think it's a lithonia or something like that.

Go to Home Depot and look to see if they have the glass cover on a shelf. It helps to post a picture of this fixture. It also does not matter where it was made, just that you need to investigate on your own, since it is your fixture, if you can get replacement parts off the shelf, without having to wait for the manufacturer to send you them, 6-8 weeks after you make the request.
