Winter can be a very difficult time of the year for businesses, especially those in the Northeast region of the United States. It's no secret Erie and its surrounding cities get hit hard with harsh elements during the Winter. These elements can have a significant effect on your property, making it vital to “winterize” your business!

Preparing your business for winter and cold weather maintenance throughout these months is critical and just might make the difference in preventing a large loss.

Roofs and Gutters

  • Test the Weight – The weight of snow and ice can cause serious damage to your roofs and gutters. It is a good idea to have a structural engineer test and determine the load your roof can withhold, and even supply you with ways of improving this.
  • Check for Clogs – Clogs can trap snow and ice which will stack additional weight to the gutters. Clogged gutters can escalate to form ice dams. Ice dams will prohibit snow from melting and eventually from draining. The backed-up water can seep into the smallest areas of your building and damage the walls, ceilings, and insulation.

Protecting Pipes

  • Let it Flow – In the winter months, it is smart to let your faucets drip slowly to prevent water from freezing inside at-risk pipes.

Operations

  • Backup Heat – As the outside temperatures drop, inside temperatures often do the same. It’s a good idea to install backup sources of heat. However, be sure these backup heat sources are vented outside to prevent carbon monoxide accumulation.

These tips can minimize; the money your business spends on repairs, inventory (from being lost or damaged) and company-wide downtime. While your competitors are spending their time and money over these months fixing broken pipes or replacing lost products; you and your team will be able to focus on growing your business without losing a step!
