Here's a trick you can do to protect your flood light sockets.

WARNING THIS TRICK ONLY APPLIES TO LED FLOODS, AS REGULAR FLOOD LAMPS WILL BURN THE TAPE!

TRICK: I use LED flood lights, which are cool to the touch, they never get warm. So I often take blue tape used for painting, and just wrap around the base of the lamp where it meets your socket, sealing out the rain. There are also green colored sockets at Walmart that have the green rubber around the base of the socket, which fits snug against the lamp, and seals out water. I use these too.

ALTERNATE TRICK, safe for all lighting: Also, to light up the huge mural on my garage, I built this enclosure below to house 3 LED flood lights, and it keeps them protected from the rain. You could build something similar for yours too.

These 3 LED floods below are kept safe and dry inside this wood enclosure that sits on my driveway in front of the garage.
