Spooky Roofing in Ottawa

Halloween is a wonderful hallmark of autumn, but many people don’t consider the toll it can take on your roof: spook damage.

Broomstick remnants from witches needing a rest mid-flight were barely noticeable back in the days of thatched roofs, but now it’s very noticeable. On their own, a few stray pieces of broomstick would likely be blown away with the next big fall gusts, but there’s a chance that it can get stuck in ghost residue, if you have both witches and ghosts stopping by.

We recently had a meeting with Casper to ask about what to do about this residue (or, as some call it, ectoplasm). While obviously a friendly ghost and happy to help, he was worried that if it had been mixed with broomstick, the extra magic could prove difficult to remove.

Casper suggested we ask Glenda to attend the meeting since, being a good witch of the north, she’s often in Canada at this time of year.

It seems that Halloween is a busy night for the spirits of the underworld, so don’t be surprised if there are a few chew marks on shingles from a hungry zombie or two who couldn’t find a suitable brain to snack on. Since there has been so much education about zombie fighting and zombie protection, they are having a hard time finding some unguarded human brains to harvest.

At the last Monster Mash, even Dracula was lamenting about the lack of popularity of his Transylvanian Twist, planning to bring it back by dancing on people’s roofs on Halloween. Overall, both Glenda and Casper were glad that we called them to deal with the potential fallout.

Fortunately there is a easy fix to all spook damage and Glenda was happy to share it with us. Make sure you put on your favourite pair of shoes and go outside with your best version of a wand. Point the wand at your roof, click your heels together three times and say the phrase we already believe: “there’s no place like home”.

Happy Halloween!
