Roof Safety

Roof Safety during the Pre-Holiday and Holiday Season! 

At Select Roofing Consultants, we truly value roof safety and yours!

With that being said, here are a few important roof safety tips that you should keep in mind, especially as the winter season approaches:

We all remember Chevy Chase and the Christmas disaster … Roof Lights and Roof  Accidents are not uncommon. 

  • When you choose to go onto your roof, make sure your work area is clean, organized, and blocked off from children.
  • Always take notice of potential danger, such as power lines and unsafe roof access areas.
  • Never work when your roof is wet, slippery, or covered in snow.
  • Avoid working on your roof during extreme weather – hot or cold. These temperatures can cause shingles to become damaged. If they aren’t laying properly, you could become seriously injured.
  • Wear soft-soled footwear. This will help you gain optimum traction.
  • You should also take advantage of fall-related safety equipment available to you. This includes a harness and ropes, as well as a roof anchor. Without this equipment, you should seriously consider calling professionals – even for basic roof inspection.
  • When it comes to ladders, made sure that all accessories are used for their intended purposes – and always maintain at least three points of contact on the ladder while climbing.
  • If you happen to be using a nail gun, using basic nail gun safety. Never point the gun at another person, and always ensure the safety mechanism is working properly.

 

Roof Safety

If these tips make you feel nervous – don’t worry! You can always contact Select Roofing Consultants for your roofing needs. As a matter of fact you should always call on a professional with insurance when it comes to home projects such as roofing! After all Roof Safety is as much about your safety as it is about your roof! 

At Select Roofing Consultants, we care about your family, your home, and your safety. We highly suggest having an inspection during the spring and fall of each year. When Atlanta homes undergo the mild or not so mild winter season, they have a tendency to lose shingles. The same is true during the summer rains and storms. 

When winter rain and cold weather make it impossible to work on  your roof, minor damage can become major damage. When you choose to have an inspection, you ensure the quality and lengthen the life of your current roof. Select Roofing Consultants is known as SRC and serves many counties in and around Atlanta, Middle and even South Ga. 

If we find a problem that needs to be addressed, Select Roofing Consultants is prepared to remedy the problem as soon as possible. We specialize in roof repair and roof replacement – in addition to roof inspection. This means not only can we find the inherent issues your roof faces, but we can make them go away.

Keep in mind that roofing professionals are almost always a better choice for your roofing needs than attempting to accomplish a roofing project on your own. Roofing professionals know how to handle specific weather conditions and safety issues – as well as electrical lines and shingle problems.
