It’s that season again. Holiday fun means caroling, shopping and spending time with friends—but these aren’t the only events that make up the season. When you’re decorating your home, consider roof décor that enhances the holiday aesthetic of your home – and is also safe for your roof.
Avoid putting a lot of weight on your room. Here are some tips:
- Let you shingle do their job. Your shingles are there to play one key role. They’re there to protect your roof. Don’t hang lights from them. Even tiny holes in shingles made to secure lights can let in moisture. This moisture will seep through your shingles. Eventually, that water will damage your roof.
- Take your time. When you’re putting up or taking down decorations, do it with care. One small mishap when tugging on decorations could mean damage to the gutters, shingles, etc.
- Be careful of power lines. Don’t put decorations near or in the way of power lines. In addition, be wary of overloading power circuits and shorting out your home’s power supply.
- Higher a professional roofer and not some amateur If you want to go all out this year, consider getting expert help. Have a contractor evaluate the roof. They’ll assess how much weight it can realistically stand. Then, hire a holiday décor professional to go to town on the roof.
Get into the spirit of things this year when decorating—but do it safely. Contact a Glen Burnie MD Roofer for help with all of your roofing needs.
