How to prepare your roof for Santa's arrival
Updated: Dec 28, 2022
"What's that? Might be the snow, it might be the breeze / The wind might have blown down the old oak tree... That's a lot of racket for a Christmas moon... I think I hear a reindeer on the roof”.
The Christmas song "Reindeer on the Roof" might seem like a fairly standard holiday song, with lyrics about Santa and his reindeer, but it has a deeper meaning for homeowners.
There is never a good time for your roof to start leaking or start experiencing other problems. Damaged roof tiles or a fallen branch might seem like minor issues, but they can have serious consequences if left unchecked. And besides, you want to ensure that old Saint Nick, and his reindeer, can safely land his sleigh on Christmas Eve!
In this blog, we'll discuss the steps you can take to prepare your roof for Santa's arrival. Whether you have a shingle, tile, or metal roof, these tips will help ensure that your home stays not only safe but also festive this holiday season.
Roof maintenance tips for homeowners this Christmas
You've been anticipating his arrival all year, the tree is trimmed, the stockings are hung, and you've got your best holiday cookies ready to share with Santa. But before he makes his big landing on Christmas Eve, there are some essential steps you need to take to prepare your roof for his arrival.
To prepare your roof for Santa's arrival, it is important to conduct regular inspections and take steps to address any issues as soon as they arise. This might include checking gutters and downspouts for blockages, clearing debris from drains, and making sure that there are no holes or cracks in the roofing materials. Additionally, you should ensure that all of your roof flashing is securely attached and functioning properly, as this can prevent water from leaking into your home.
How to prepare your roof for Santa's arrival
Clear any debris or snow from your roof so Santa has a clear landing spot
Keeping your chimney clear and clean is essential to prevent accumulation of creosote, which can result in a serious chimney fire. Christmas might not be the same without Santa coming down the chimney, so make sure he has an unobstructed route to come down with his presents for everyone.
Make sure all your holiday lights are shining brightly so Santa can land safely
Santa comes only once a year, so we want to make sure his stop at your house runs as smoothly as possible. If your holiday lights aren't shining brightly enough, Santa may not be able to land at night! Of course, the poor guy needs all the help he can get after hauling those heavy presents all over the world in one night. Fire up those LED lights and twinkle bulbs now, so you can save him the trouble and make sure his sleigh coasts safely down onto your roof.
Make sure your roof has been checked by a professional roofer this year
Once you know that your roof is in good shape, you can be confident that Santa and his reindeer will have a safe place to land on Christmas Eve. And if you're looking for peace of mind about your roof all year long, consider hiring a professional roofer to conduct regular inspections and maintenance work throughout the year. With their expert knowledge and tools, they can help you ensure that your roof is fully prepared for all the challenges winter weather can bring.
