How not to set up your Christmas lights – festive roofing tips from Absolute!
It’s the most wonderful time of the year! Or is it? Where roofing is concerned it can be one of the more annoying times of the year! What with the wind and rain – not to mention snow and hail! Add to that trying to decorate your home with lights and goodness knows what for Christmas, it can make for a stressful time!
Not to worry, your favourite roofers are here to take the stress out of decorating your roof – and to show you how NOT to do things. You have been warned!
- Have a reliable ladder, and know how to set it up safely – The ladder is the best tool in your arsenal for any form of home decoration or renovation, but it’s vital that you have one in great condition and you don’t take any silly risks. Make sure it’s stable, and you have someone holding the bottom for maximum safety.
- Do NOT get on the roof – leave that to the professionals! Our roofers in Burnley and Clitheroe are used to getting up on roofs safely, but for the untrained layperson it’s a bad idea. The amount of damage you can do to your roof is substantial when you don’t know your way around – not to mention that you could hurt yourself!
- Make sure you don’t go it alone – It’s vital to have a partner in crime when you’re doing anything large scale like this to your home. What can start out as seeming like a small job can quickly snowball once you get started, and it’s important to have someone to help you out if things get tricky.
- Work in the daylight – no wind, no rain – The lights may look nicer at night, but believe us, you want to do the actual work in the daylight! Being perched on top of a ladder in the rain and the dark isn’t something you’d catch our roofers in Burnley up to – and we’re getting paid for the trouble!
