With temperatures reaching to the 90's this week, our team has to be extremely careful with heat exhaustion.
To ensure we are being safe on your roof, we do various things to help with the heat.
- Our crews start very early in the summertime. They get to our office at 6:00 AM, so depending on traffic and loading the materials, we typically start working at 6:30 - 7:30 AM. When we are tearing off a roof or multiple roof layers, we are able to do this before the temperatures get too extreme.
- Our crews drink lots of water! We do provide water to try to encourage them to drink throughout the day.
- To avoid sunburn, our journeymen wear long sleeve shirts, long pants, hard hats, neck covers, and sunglasses.
When choosing a roofing company be sure to ask about safety precautions for heat exhaustion. You want to make sure you choose a company with insurance that will be careful in the heat this summer!
