Snow and Ice Removal
It’s November, which means some of us are just a few weeks away from that dreaded four letter word…snow. While we all hate the extra winter chore of shoveling and deicing our driveways, walkways, and parking lots, this is an important task you do not want to avoid. Besides the safety aspect of it, snow and ice can be brutal on concrete and asphalt, making sure you maintain these surfaces during the winter can extend the life of your concrete and asphalt.
Before the snow starts to fall, you will want to make sure that all of the leafs from fall have been cleared from your driveway and sidewalk. This will help make snow and ice removal much easier for you. As soon as the first snow falls, start clearing. Not only will this make things easier in the long run, but it will also prevent ice buildup. You’ll want to keep this up all winter long. What if you don’t have to use part of your driveway during the winter months? It is still important to keep it clear. Both the weight of accumulated ice and snow, as well as melting ice and snow can cause cracks in concrete and asphalt. Just following this relatively simple step of keeping it clear during the winter can help you avoid the cost of maintenance or replacement for years to come.
