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 and 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 with heat exhaustion. You want to make sure you choose a company with insurance that will be careful in the heat this summer!
