Planning ahead for your business during the winter months

Winter may seem like an unlikely season for major roofing projects, but at Balmore we want to share some compelling reasons why planning your industrial roof overhaul now, during the colder months can be a wise strategic move for your business.

1. Cost-Effectiveness: Winter Discounts and Reduced Competition

The roofing industry typically experiences a slowdown during winter, making it an advantageous time to negotiate lower rates from contractors. Additionally, the fewer projects competing for contractors’ attention can lead to faster turnaround times, potentially saving your business time and money. Obviously every roof is different, ranging from size to access requirements but beginning the conversation now can be a savvy move to help control costs for your new industrial roof refitting.

2. Improved Workability: Cold, Dry Conditions Favour Roofing

Contrary to popular belief, winter’s cold and dry weather can actually benefit roofing projects. The lack of humidity and extreme heat minimises the risk of warping materials and ensuring precise installations. If the roofing work is timed right and we avoid heavy rain and strong winds, this can minimise the chances of disruptions and delays.

3. Reduced Disruption: Scheduling Around Winter Activities

While outdoor activities are curtailed during winter, an industrial roof overhaul can be seamlessly integrated into your operations without disrupting daily routines. This is particularly beneficial for facilities that operate 24/7.

4. Protection from Early Damage: Winter’s Shielding Effect

The harsh winter elements can actually shield your newly installed roof from early damage. The absence of harsh storms, such as hail, heavy winds, and torrential downpours, minimises the risk of premature wear and tear, extending the lifespan of your roof.

5. Specialized Equipment: Handling Winter Challenges

At Balmore, we utilise specialist access platforms and winterised roofing equipment specifically designed to operate safely and efficiently in icy or snowy conditions. This equipment ensures that our expert team can handle the project without compromising quality or safety.

6. Underlying Issue Identification

Winter presents an ideal opportunity to identify and address any underlying structural issues with your roof, such as water damage, rot, or weakened framing. Early detection and resolution of these issues can extend the overall lifespan of your roof and prevent more costly repairs down the line.
