Building Prep for Winter: During the Freeze

Building Prep- During the freeze

Last week we covered prepping your building before the freeze and this week we’re going to discuss tips and tricks for building prep for winter and surviving the freeze.  Plummeting temperatures  can interrupt production within your facility and if not properly observed can be costly.

General Tips:
  • Roof collapse doesn’t happen suddenly- monitor the amount of snow that accumulates on your roof and make sure to remove it before it reaches an unsafe level
  • Make sure you have enough roof drains and keep them clear of ice
  • Keep an eye on emergency supplies and make sure to regularly restock when supplies get low

Be In The Know: Winter Weather Preparedness

Building Tips:
  • Regularly check pipes- especially exposed or those that run along outside walls, for corrosion.
  • Inspect for insulation voids and that there is adequate heat source to keep pipes warm enough to avoid freezing
  • Winterize your landscaping sprinkler system by purging the system
  • Check areas that are susceptible cold- these areas should be monitored weekly if not daily for severe changes in temperatures
