Can Santa Land on Your Rooftop?

'Tis the season of joy and wonder, and as we eagerly anticipate the arrival of Santa, let's take a closer look at his annual path—up on the rooftops, reindeer pause and out jumps good old Santa Claus! But just how does Santa manage those impressive landings with his trusty reindeer? 





Let’s talk about all things roofs to ensure Santa makes it down your chimney this Christmas.


Will the Reindeer Leave Their Mark?

Now, you might be wondering if Rudolph’s hooves will cause damage to your beloved roof. Fear not, dear homeowners! Reindeer hooves are specially designed for traversing various terrains, and their magic ensures that they leave no more than a sprinkle of holiday enchantment behind. The only thing you’ll have to be worried about is Santa leaving cookies residue on the roof after he drops off your presents!


Santa's Secret

Santa's iconic boots are more than just a fashion statement—they are an essential part of his rooftop navigation kit. Crafted with the finest North Pole magic, these boots provide the perfect blend of style and functionality. Whether the roofing is wood, slate, or synthetic, Santa's boots are designed to tread lightly and securely on any rooftop, ensuring not a creature will stir, not even a mouse.


Wooden Roofs

Wooden roofs, especially those made of natural cedar, have a timeless charm, but are they reindeer-friendly? The answer is a resounding yes! Wood has a high impact rating and provides a forgiving surface for reindeer hooves, ensuring a smooth landing for a miniature sleigh and eight tiny reindeer.


If you would like to ensure your roof is of top-notch quality for Santa's annual visit, we look forward to applying a specially formulated oil to provide weather protection for your roof’s shingles.


Natural Slate Roofs

Slate roofs exude elegance and durability, making them a popular choice among homeowners. The smooth surface allows for a graceful landing, but the concern arises—will Santa's boots handle the challenge? Fear not! Santa's boots, both stylish and robust, are crafted to triumph over the sleek surfaces of slate, ensuring a slip-free journey through the wintry night.


Synthetic Roofs

In the age of innovation, synthetic roofing materials have gained popularity. Whether it's composite shingles or metal roofing, these options offer durability and longevity. The good news for Santa is that his reindeer can handle these surfaces with ease. And Santa himself? Well, those sturdy boots of his are up for any challenge, providing the grip needed for a seamless ride to get him right down Santa Claus Lane.


EcoStar shakes are a solution that is both aesthetically pleasing and environmentally friendly. Santa can land on a roof made of up to 80% recycled post-industrial rubber and plastic, contributing to the diversion of millions of pounds of scrap from landfills annually.


Asphalt Shingle Roofs

Asphalt shingle roofs are a common sight in neighborhoods far and wide. The good news for Santa is that these shingles provide a stable and secure surface for Vixen, Blitzen, and all his reindeer pulling on the reins to land on your roof. And what about Santa all covered in soot and ash? Well, he can confidently tread on asphalt shingles without causing any harm.
