Avoid Roof Damage Caused by Fireworks with These Tips! πŸŽ†

 It's already that time of year again where we are seeing firework stands pop up everywhere! Fireworks are a lot of fun and a great way to celebrate! However, it's important to take necessary precautions when setting off fireworks at home. Roof damage can easily occur if you aren't being carful. Read on to get a few tips for keeping your roof free of firework damage this summer!  


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.

Trim Back Any Overhanging Trees 

Not only can dry debris on your roof catch fire but so can tree branches. If there is a branch hanging over your house when it catches fire, it can break off causing it to fall on your home and catch your roof on fire. Avoid that possibility by trimming back your trees away from your home. This is a good roofing maintenance tip even if you aren't shooting off fireworks, as summer storms can cause tree branches to fall on your roof and cause damage.

Set Off Fireworks in a Clear Open Area 

It's important to remain a safe distance from your home and the audience when setting off fireworks. You should remain a minimum distance of 35 feet from fountains and ground fireworks and 150 feet for aerial fireworks.
