Halloween is many people’s favorite time of year. Just like at Christmas, they decorate their home to create a more festive and fun-filled environment. Porches, decks, fences and front yards are often decked out. There are even ways a homeowner can decorate their roof to give their creation an added touch. The roof is the perfect vantage point for many types of decorations.
At Applied Roofing Services, our staff has many suggestions to help homeowners add unique roof decorations to their list of ideas:
Lighting Is Everything
Specially placed lighting not only adds an eerie feeling to the home, it can cast shadows that stretch across the front lawn making it look treacherous and forbidden. Lighting can also be used to highlight decorations that are placed on the roof. A few subtle lights placed in just the right spot can increase a home’s level on the fright meter.
Spiders and Webs
Large spiders and pieces of webbing can also be used to decorate a roof. At Applied Roofing Services, our staff members can help you decide on what items that can be used to create the body and legs of a spider so that it looks like it is actually overtaking the home. Add a few spider webs to the mix and you have a recipe for a completely haunting trick or treat night.
Haunts On High
Stuffed zombies that appear to be climbing a drain pipe or crawling across the roof can be accented with a subtle light placed in just the right spot to cast an ominous shadow. Skeletons can also be added to the mix. Placing a skeleton on the edge of the roof so it peers at trick or treaters from the gutter can be quite unnerving.
