Keep Your Roof Safe this Fourth of July

Image
Fourth of July is right around the corner and one of the best ways to celebrate is with fireworks! Fireworks are generally fun for everyone...except sometimes fireworks aren't so fun for your Lake of the Ozarks Roof! If you don't take the necessary safety precautions, your roof can get damaged. That's why today, our Lake of the Ozarks Roofing company has a few tips for keeping your roof safe this Fourth of July. 

Clear Your Roof of Any Debris. 
Before shooting off any fireworks near your home, be sure there's no debris sitting on your roof. Dry leaves, sticks and other debris tend to gather in roof valleys and gutters. These types of material can quickly turn a small spark from a firework into a blazing fire. By clearing your roof ahead of time, you'll decrease the risk of a house fire if a firework does accidentally land on your roof. Regular cleaning of your gutters, not just around the 4th of July, will help you avoid roof issues throughout all the seasons.

Seemingly minor issues could turn out to be a bigger issue if rain water gets to the roof deck and starts leaking into your home.
