Don't Let Kris Kringle Slip On Your Roof Shingles

Depending on the types of shingles, the pitch of the roof and how overgrown with moss and lichen they are, your roof shingles can be an accident waiting to happen for anyone up on the roof. Experienced roofers as well as the novice handyman can end up sliding off the roof if not careful.

Weather plays its part and that old saw about “Slippery when wet” applies just as much to slate roof tiles or mossy cedar shingles as to any freshly washed floor. Accessing and running around on a snowy roof trying to do roof repair, especially if that roof has buried snow guards, can send the unwary on a trip, stumble and major fall.

Starting with Hallowe’en, the later part of the year has the enticing but dangerous combination of doing exterior home decorations sandwiched in between inclement weather. Not too many people go whole hog with haunted mansions in October although there’s always one home in the neighborhood that has second story ghosts fluttering between the roof and the closest tree.

The truly dangerous decorating time is late November and early December when homes across the nation suddenly look like Santa Claus, Frosty the Snowman and sugar plum fairy dancing lights decide to take up residence on every street on nearly every home. News articles abound with pictures of homes that put real strain on the power grid system and some homes, like in Sunnyvale, CA, even have their own mini-radio broadcast systems so that cars can park, tune in and watch the lights “dance” to favorite holiday songs. With homes displays like these, Santa Claus will have to really watch out for slippery roof shingles and spaghetti strands of electric lights to boot.

Roof Repair
I placed a request for a roof repair on Roofer911.com I got a call back in ten minutes and they get out there that same day. I had a quote with pictures and detailed description of the repair and it was fixed in the same day. Roofer911 was an absolute pleasure to deal with. They fixed my roof in an extremely timely and professional manner for a fair price. Other roofing companies were more interested in trying to sell me a new roof over the phone and not interested in a my small repair job. I highly recommend Roofer911.
