As you drive around to admire Christmas decorations this season, you’ll probably see lots of rooftop decorations in addition to decorations on lawns and in trees. You might even have some of those decorations on your own roof as well! First Out Roofing is here to help outline some of the festive things to look for as you’re out on your holiday drives around your neighborhood.

String Lights

Stringing lights along the edges of a home’s rooftop is one of the most classic seasonal rooftop decorations that you see around this time of year. Lights are the most popular decoration around the holidays, and you’ll probably see more of this kind of ornament than you will any other. Lights are a great option for rooftop decorations because they are (usually) pretty easy to put up, but they make a huge impact! 

As you’re driving around at night, you’ll probably see a wide variety of lights on the roofs that you pass. Some houses prefer a string of classic white bulbs, while other houses hang bright multicolored lights. There are also special systems that can link a house’s lights to music so that they blink and dance along to Christmas carols. No matter what look your home is going for, there is definitely a choice of string lights that matches your vision!

Flood Lights

Flood lights are a fun variation of the classic string lights, and are a great option if your roof doesn’t have the best structural shape to be hanging lights in the traditional way. Floodlights generate a large area of colored light that can color the side of your house as well as your roof. There are even certain filters you can use to project shapes and patterns onto your house as well. Like the string lights, flood lights can also be linked to music if that’s something you want to utilize. Flood lights can be used on their own or alongside traditional string lights if you want to layer the two techniques for the highest level of festivities.


Installing shapes and figures from iconic holiday movies is easy when those rooftop decorations are so lightweight. It’s a great way to include Santa Claus or his reindeer up on your roof without lugging heavy solid decorations all the way up there. The only downside to this is that any windy days that blow in over the holidays can put those decorations in danger of blowing away. Installing those inflatable rooftop decorations with sturdy and reliable cables is incredibly important if you don’t want your inflatable reindeer taking flight for real!

Call First Out Roofing For Holiday Help

Rooftop decorations can be complicated to get right. If not installed correctly, any kind of decoration can increase your roof’s susceptibility to damage. The attention to your roof that the holidays can bring can sometimes also alert you of existing damage up there. If you’re noticing any damage done to your roof this holiday season, call First Out Roofing for expert help and quick repairs.
