Baton Rouge Roofing Contractors
Here in the south, local roofing contractors are fortunate to be able to roof through the winter. The roofing work here is pretty consistent unlike the northern states that get lots of snow and have to stop roofing during the winter months. However, even though here in the south we do not get snow there are still several factors that play a role in making roofing riskier during the cold winter months. Here are some things to consider and hopefully can help your local roofers roof safe;
1. Slippery Slopes: Even though we do not get snow, the temperatures are still cold enough to freeze. And the winter usually means wet and moisture. This moisture builds up on the shingles of the roof and makes for a much worse slippery surface. It’s important to be conscious of these slippery slopes and
utilize proper safety equipment to avoid accidents and protect your roofing crew.
2. Hydration: Most roofers are very aware to stay hydrated during the hot months. They however do not consider that the exact same circumstances exist in the winter and although it’s not hot they still are perspiring underneath their clothing and need to continue to stay hydrated. make sure there is always plenty of water available for your Baton Rouge Roofing Contractors.
3. Body Temperature: It is very common for roofers to catch hypothermia during the winter months. Hypothermia occurs when the body temperature drops below a safe temperature and the critical organs no longer function properly. This can be caused by the perspiration underneath the clothing and the cold temperatures. Try wearing three layers of clothing when roofing during the winter months. This will allow the first layer to absorb the perspiration while the second and thirs layer become more protective against the cold.
