Most homeowners place Halloween decorations around their front door, front porch, and walkway leading up to the house. If you really want to go all-out this year, then why not put some spooky decorations up on your roof as well? The Edmonton and Sherwood Park roofing contractors at A. Clark Roofing & Siding LP. love to see homeowners get into the spirit of Halloween with roof decorations. We’ve seen some great roof decoration ideas over the years and our Edmonton roofers have also put together some helpful tips to keep you safe while putting them up.
Halloween Roof Decoration Ideas
One of the easiest ways to add some extra spooky appeal to your home is to simply attach fake spider webs to your roof. Have them hang low so as to brush over the heads of trick-or-treaters, and place some fake spiders throughout the webs as well.
Another fun option for decorating your roof for Halloween is to stuff some shirts and pants to make human-like figures to set up on your roof. Dress them up in scary Halloween costumes and use Halloween masks to cover their heads (which you can make out of a basketball, soccer ball, or just some rolled up fabric).
If you’re not too into DIY, then you can use just about any type of Halloween decoration that you might place on your lawn or porch up on your roof as well. However, it is better for the decorations to be slightly larger in size, as they will need to be clearly seen from the ground. Cauldrons, black cats, tombstones, skeletons – any decoration that you can safely and securely attach to your roof will be a fantastically spooky choice.
Halloween Roof Decorating Tips
Speaking of being safe while decorating your roof, it’s wise to heed the advice of experienced Edmonton roofers. Before placing any props and decorations onto your roof or climbing out onto the roof yourself, you’ll need to make sure that your roof is strong enough to support any extra weight. Perform a visual inspection beforehand for any signs of damage or any areas that are sagging.
If your roof doesn’t look right to you, then save your decorations for next year and get in touch with trusted roofing contractors who offer roof repair in Edmonton. Climbing up onto an unsafe roof isn’t worth having the spookiest house on the block. Take the time to have your roof properly repaired and you can look forward to wowing your neighbours next year.
