Whether you prefer Halloween, Thanksgiving, or Christmas, holiday inflatable decorations are one of the best things about the holidays. For most people, this includes lights and some inflatables. Here's what you need to know about roof holiday inflatable decorations safety!
Don't Lock Your Lights: Clip Them
Avoid using staples, even with your most ambitious Christmas plans. Staples:
will damage your roof and siding
Doesn't work well - especially on fiber cement
Requires annual rebinding
Increase the chance of injury
Instead of using old-fashioned staples, try modern solutions like Christmas light clips. There are a variety of light clips for different types of lighting: most attach to your sink and elsewhere around the house, and can be easily removed at the end of the season. However, when using light clips, you need to be careful not to press the sink too hard and damage them. A string of regular icicle Christmas lights will do. Do not hang large objects over the sink.
Don't nail your tiles, protect them
Your shingles already have a lot of work to do in the winter (endure low temperatures, storms, etc.). ). Don't nail anything to your roof slab, it will just make perfect little holes in your roof.
Avoid placing any statues, statues, or plank cuts on the roof as the weight can damage the shingles. Save these for your lawn.

Tie or weigh inflatable items
If you look at successful roof holiday inflatable decorations projects, you will notice that they tend to use light frame lights or inflatable objects. Inflatables are usually light enough to fit on your roof and need to be positioned properly to avoid damage. Here are a few points to keep in mind:
Do not place objects on roofs with steep slopes. You want a slope that is significantly less than 45 degrees.
You can tie the inflatable toy with clips, string, and objects around the roof. If those aren't enough to withstand winter storms in your area, then you need to keep your roof clean.
Some of the best inflatables use wooden frames that can be placed on the roof to lighten holiday inflatable decorations.
Some people suggest using sandbags to hold down the items for holiday inflatable decorations on the roof. However, sandbags are difficult to drag to your roof, and they are so heavy that they can easily damage the roofing material.
Keep all holiday inflatable decorations away from other objects
Do not place your holiday inflatables or other products near any other objects. This includes chimneys (burn hazard), electrical wiring (shock and fire), tree branches (pierced and damaged), and vents (blocked).
