Besides exterior walls and roofs, there are other important locations or elements in the facility that should be prepared to withstand the winter season. One of them is the HVAC coatings system, which the epoxy coating contractor should check thoroughly for any needed repairs. HVAC systems are crucial for good heating and ventilation within the facility, particularly during the cold months of winter. The epoxy coating contractor should inspect the mechanical components of the HVAC, including its housing, pipings, and supply lines. These components should be clean and functioning well. If any damage exists, such as signs of rusting or rotting, the HVAC system should undergo repairs and maintenance. Furthermore, when the epoxy coating contractor finds any signs of corrosion to the HVAC coating system, this should be fixed as soon as possible.
Aside from the HVAC system, the epoxy coating contractor should also check gutters, downspouts, drains, and other parts of the facility that will be exposed to the winter climate. Drains, for example, need to be unclogged to prevent waterlogged roofs and decks come wintertime. The main thing to consider is that when any deterioration is evident in the coating systems of exterior locations, these should be cleaned up at once by the epoxy coating contractor, resurfaced, and made ready for the oncoming cold season.
