Happy Holidays from JW Roofing

JW Roofing Wishes You a Happy, Safe Holiday Season!

JW Roofing would like to wish you happy holidays and a healthy new year! Thank you for choosing us as your trusted roofing company in Dayton, Ohio. We are thankful for you and your support, and look forward to seeing where the new year brings us! In the meantime, ‘tis the season to be festive! Many have already begun decorating for the holidays. As you string the lights and spend time with friends and family, the JW Roofing team hopes you’ll keep these important roof safety tips in mind:

With Decor, Less Is More

While you may be tempted to add loads of decorations to your home and your roof, you might consider opting for less. Not only will doing so risk blowing a fuse and save on your electric bill, it will also reduce the risk of damaging your roof. This year, consider a more minimalist look.

Safe Installation Is Key

When hanging holiday decor, please be mindful of your safety. Inspect your lights and decoration for signs of damage before installing when. It’s also important to use the right tools for installation. For instance, your ladder is a key element in roof decorating. If you’re getting up to hang lights on your roof, you’ll want to be sure it’s sturdy. There are quite a few common holiday decorating mistakes that may cause damage to your roof.

Removal Process

Much like taking down the Christmas tree, taking down outdoor lights and decorations is a chore that many dread – especially when temperatures in Dayton are below freezing! However, safe removal of holiday lights is critical to your roof’s health.

  • If you’re using a ladder to remove lights, we encourage you to wait until the weather warms up. Climbing on a roof that is covered in snow is a major risk! 
  • While it may sound easier, never pull the lights down from your roof or gutters. Pulling off light strings can damage your shingles, gutters, or siding.
  • Professional help is a possibility! If you aren’t confident in your ability to remove lights and decorations on your own, hire a professional to come out and do it for you.

Have You Noticed Signs of Damage on Your Roof This Winter?

If so, the team at JW Roofing encourages you to address roofing issues before the next big winter storm. Ignoring a compromised roofing system is an even bigger risk during the winter months! One common issue customers face in winter is ice damming. Ice dams can form when snow buildup melts during the day and refreezes as soon as temperatures drop. If left untreated, ice dams can tear off shingles and gutters or cause water damage.

If you’ve noticed common signs of damage such as ice dams, cracked or missing shingles, or leaks in your home it is time to give your go-to roofing company a call. If you’re in the Dayton area, we suggest scheduling a free inspection of your roof before the next storm rolls through. An expert roofer will be able to look for any signs of damage.

Contact JW Roofing for your roofing needs now and in the future. We would be happy to come out to inspect your roof for damage. Give us a call now before it’s too late!

From Our Homes to Yours, Happy Holidays! 

We want to thank all of our loyal customers for trusting in us this past year for all of your roofing needs. We encourage you to take the well-deserved time to sit back, relax, and enjoy the holiday season with family and friends. JW Roofing looks forward to being your go-to Dayton, Ohio roofing company in the new year and many years to come!
