When Should You Take Down Your Holiday Lights?

Although we are in the prime time of the year for holiday lights, the season will end soon, leaving thousands of families questioning when they should take down their lights. For many, the lights are a fun, festive, and attractive way to get through the winter’s cold and dark aspects. For others, they are eyesores that should be taken down on Dec. 26. We at A. Brooks Construction Kanga Roof, Bristol’s residential roof replacement professionals, enjoy the holiday lights as much as the ones who put them up. Still, we also know that there are some serious concerns for leaving them up too long.

How Long is Too Long? 

Sadly, there is no definitive answer to this question, but the three arguments that make the most sense to us are as follows: 

 

We appreciate those holiday lights, but there comes a time when they must come down, and you have to ensure that you are safe and have help! Prolonging the removal will leave wires exposed to the elements for too long and increase the risk of fire and electrical hazards. We know that the blustering, bitter winds of winter can discourage you from touching that ladder, but the sooner you get them down, the safer you and your family will be, and the longer your lights and decorations will last!

From all of us at A. Brooks Construction Kanga Roof, we hope you have a safe and happy holiday season! And remember, if you need any residential roofing services in Bristol, PA, give us a call today!
