Tis the season for holiday cheer, opening gifts, and spending time with family and friends. When deciding how to decorate your home this holiday season, Christmas lights are likely at the top of your list. In order to do it properly and make your house the talk of the town, you’ll need to keep many things in mind. Be sure to buy the right type of lights, test that they are working, and also decide where and how to hang them.
Our Toronto roofing professionals at Alpine Roofing have some advice for safely hanging lights on your roof this holiday season.
Getting Ready to Hang your Christmas Lights
A little bit of planning will make your job a lot easier this year. Rather than spending hours untangling lights and stapling them to your roof only to find out they don’t work, follow the steps below for flawless installation:
Protect yourself and your home by keeping the following in mind:
Avoid Roof Damage on your Toronto Home
Your roof protects you and your family from the elements, so you don’t want to damage it while hanging your Christmas lights. If you do accidently damage your roof, be sure to call a Toronto roofing company like Alpine Roofing. We provide residential roofing services in Scarborough, Toronto, Markham, Richmond Hill, and surrounding areas.
To avoid damage, do not staple or nail anything to your shingles. As well, use shingle tabs or all-in-one clips to hang your lights and do not walk on a shingled roof to prevent it from breaking under your weight.
