Plan Now & You’ll Be Prepared For Winter Weather

With winter right around the corner, planning for snow and ice management needs to be a top priority for both commercial business owners as well as residential property owners.  We all know that snow and ice can show up overnight, you’ll need to find a way to manage winter weather. Some questions you might need to consider are:

  • What is your plan for snow and ice management for winter?
  • Have you budgeted for products and/or services to help control snow and ice on your property?
  • Is this a project you want to handle yourself or do you want to hire someone to do it for you?
  • Do you have the right tools and materials to keep your business or home running safely during winter storms?
Snow and ice management can be overwhelming, even for a seasoned New York resident. As snow and ice control experts in Westchester County, Landwork Contractors knows how to handle winter storms of every shape and size. Here are our tips to help you prepare for winter weather:

  1. Choose the Right Products for the Right Job- Many people stockpile ordinary salt rock sold in convenience stores and gas stations thinking it will work for everything. The truth is, rock salt is actually very damaging to certain materials, particularly concrete. An expert, like our ice control management team members, will help you know the difference. We recommend using specific ice-melting materials for the different areas of your home. Use this handy chart to help you know the difference between rock salt and calcium chloride.
  2. Get the Right Tools for the Job- Controlling ice and snow isn’t something you can do with a broom and an ice scraper, not in Westchester County. You have to have the appropriate tools for the job. Otherwise, you could cause damage to your home, create dangerous areas for your family or employees, and even get hurt yourself. If you’re going to try to master the job make sure you include the following tools:
    • Warm Waterproof Gloves
    • Warm Yet Breathable Clothing
    • Waterproof Jackets
    • Sturdy Good Quality Shovels
    • Quality Snow Blowers
  3. Ask Questions of Your Ice Management Crew– If you have decided to hire a professional to handle your ice and snow management, ask questions. Any professional company should be able to answer the following questions:
    • What type of ice melting products do you use?
    • What is your application process?
    • Do you offer emergency services?
    • Do you use snow blowers or shovels?
    • How much equipment do you have?
    • How big is your ice control fleet?
