Winter Storms

Snow on your roof can cause a multitude of issues, be sure to check regularly to ensure it's not accumulating.

No one wants to think about inches upon inches of snow falling, but winter is fast approaching so your facility should have a comprehensive plan for winter storms. From corrosion caused by deicing agents that can destroy building integrity and the documented damage heavy snow can cause to roofs, your plan should include actionable steps to take to keep snow from accumulating on the roof. Another threat during winter weather season is the danger posed to occupants by snow-covered parking lots. Be sure your snow-clearing contracts allow for emergency service, and most importantly, be prepared – know when the next storm is scheduled to hit so you can protect critical areas as soon as possible.
