Temporary Heat Solutions for Your Job Sites

BrightStar provides propane for direct-fire heaters.

Direct-fired heaters are ideal for contractors due to their rugged design and dependable operation on construction sites and other open-air locations.

The weather can really wreak havoc when your business is working on a construction or renovation project.

In fact, cold weather can create all kinds of problems at a job site.

  • Solvents and water in paint can freeze and make drying and curing time longer. Some paints may become too thick to apply.
  • Plaster can freeze, weakening to the point where it may come off the surface at the slightest touch.
  • Stucco that freezes within the first 48 hours of application will be compromised, because the excess water in it will expand when it freezes, which can negatively affect its durability and strength.
  • Ice crystals can weaken both concrete and bricks.
  • If there’s existing plumbing at a renovation site, cold temperatures can cause pipes to freeze and burst.
  • Joint compound and spackle don’t adhere properly to drywall.
  • Equipment may not run properly.
  • Workers are vulnerable to hypothermia and frostbite. And ice on surfaces may cause slips and falls.
  • Labor costs are driven up by the affects that cold weather can have on your materials and because of the extra time needed to finish jobs.
