4 Tips for Safely Decorating Your Roof For the Holidays

The holiday season is fast approaching and you ought to be ready with some classic holiday decoration plans. If you are considering making some roof decorations for the first time this season, it’s important to learn of the following few tips on how to do it safely.

1. Draw up a plan

You need to have a plan before you start decorating your roof, particularly if you are doing it for the first time. There are so many decoration options available to choose from including clear and colored lights, shaped lights, twinkling lights, inflatables, dolls, and more. Search for classic decorations and determine if they would work well on your roof or not.

2. Install your decorations with caution

Working on the roof is a risky endeavor that requires you to proceed with caution. Get proper gear such as a ladder and safety harness to protect yourself when hanging your decorations. Also ensure that your decoration lights are not tangled or twisted before climbing up the roof. Tangled wires can pose a safety risk to you if they get caught in cracks and crevices. It's also advisable that you always have help on the job.

3. Don't hang your decorative lights on the shingles

This is a common mistake that many homeowners make. Do not make holes on your shingles in order to hang lights as this may let moisture and other elements in. Instead, consider using clips to hang your lights from the gutters.

4. Get your roof decorations down carefully

When the holiday season is over, some people tend to be in a rush to pull down their roof decorations and hence end up damaging their roof shingles or gutters. Instead of doing this, take your time to get the decorations down carefully and patiently.
