Santa Claus is Coming to Town:
Santa asks for HELP in Nashville and Surrounding areas to prepare for his much anticipated WORLD WIDE Christmas Delivery straight from the North Pole.
Straight from the North Pole (exPRESS)
As you know Santa makes his list, and he checks it twice… And he will find out who has been naughty and nice. Whatever you do, do good for goodness sake. The elves are in the homestretch of building and making the last few toys requested from boys and girls all over the world and he has requested help to ensure that each roof is in the best condition for a safe landing of his sleigh and reindeer.
Santa made a list and wanted to share it with all Nashville residents and surrounding areas to make sure their roof is ready for Santa to arrive and ready for winter. *Be sure to check it twice!
1. Check for Missing Shingles?
Missing shingles are a major hazard for Rudolph and the other reindeer. It could damage their hooves. As you are pulling into your driveway next, take a look, do you see any missing shingles, possibly curled shingles? Why is this a problem? Missing shingles can let moisture and precipitation in, causing damage in your attic and places you can’t see with the naked eye.
If you find any missing shingles, please call My Roofing Crew so they can replace them in the nick of time. Santa would like to remind you that unless you are Santa himself, his reindeer, or a local roofing professional, you should avoid walking on your roof.
2. Trim the Trees
Just like missing shingles, tree branches are a major hazard for Rudolph and the other reindeer. It could damage their hooves. As well as keep them from landing safely and taking off quickly to continue their WorldWide Christmas Delivery to all the boys and girls around the world.
If you have branches or trees hanging on the side of your roof, they need to be trimmed and pulled away from the roof. Why? Snow and ice tend to fall and stick to trees and branches during winter. If one falls, with the weight of ice and snow, it could do major damage to your roof.
Please call a local professional tree trimming service if you have limbs that are close or touching the roof. This will shorten the life of your roof. Please always refer to Better Business Bureau for qualified companies.
3. Clean the Gutters (Regularly)
Santa knows how special FALL is, and knows how quickly we all love to move into the Holidays. Unfortunately, those leaves we love so much, love to fall and stay around on your roof and in your gutters for a long time. It is important to clear out your gutters often, so when it snows, it can melt and flow easily through your gutters and down the downspout. And leaves don’t just gather in gutters, they gather in piles on your roof in valleys and such that trap moisture and precipitation in, causing damage in your attic and places you can’t see with the naked eye. Not to mention old wet leaves can make the reindeer sick.
4. Watch for Ice Dams!
What is an ice dam? Ice dams are a ridge of ice that forms at the edge of your roof and prevents melting snow from properly draining off the roof. They are dangerous, slippery and can cause issues to any roof system. This predominantly takes place on homes that have gutters, if you do not have gutters typically you shouldn’t have ice damming issues. Contact My Roofing Crew, for all your roofing needs.
5. Leave the Snow alone on the roof!
Santa knows you want snow for Christmas, and though he doesn’t control the weather, he did want to say if you are lucky enough to have snow for Christmas, do not worry about too much snow on your roof. Santa knows you are not used to the snow, so please do not rake the snow off your roof, as you can damage your shingles, and cause more harm than good.
Santa actually prefers the snow as it reminds him and his reindeer of their home at the North Pole and it helps cushion their landing.
6. Other Holiday Tips!
Santa knows families all around the world love to decorate and light their houses up. He wants to remind you of a few ways you can protect your roof from damages YOU actually cause yourself during the holidays.
- Please oh please leave walking on the roof to the professionals.
- Please oh please use a ladder to hang lights from your gutters.
- Please oh please do NOT nail lights to your roof, including the fascia. (OR STAPLE)
- Please oh please do NOT lift flashing to install lights.
