One of the most important parts of the facility that needs to be checked by the epoxy coating contractor before the winter weather sets in are the roofing systems. Facility managers should not procrastinate in winter-proofing roofs, decks and all other parts of the facility that will be exposed to snow and the winter winds, because come wintertime, any amount of snow will make detection and repair of any roof leaks and damages impossible.

The epoxy coating contractor should perform a close inspection of roofs, decks, and copings when it is still possible to access these areas of the facility, and provide necessary repairs. Extremely cold weather conditions can cause materials to contract, and roofing systems are not exempted from reacting to the weather. Any loose materials or deteriorating metalwork in the roofing system should be fixed by the epoxy coating contractor, or else risk having them fall apart totally in the middle of winter.

During winter, an accumulation of heavy snowfall on roofs can lead to eventual damage. Damage that will be hard to rectify when a pileup of snow makes it hazardous to navigate the roof tops. Roofing systems, like exterior walls, act as a protective enclosure that prevents cold weather in entering the facility during the winter months, that is why it is important that they are fortified enough to withstand the onslaught of the cold season.
