Did you know there are such things as heated driveways? You can have a heated driveway system built to prevent snow and ice from building up and what’s even better, is you turn the system on from the comfort of your own home! Thank you technology. But, it’s pricey and not everyone can afford it. They can cost anywhere from $12-$21 per square foot.
The cheaper solution?
Snow melting mats! They range in size, so pricing can range anywhere from $79-$200. They can be plugged into each other and create a comfortable, ice-free walkway from your car to your front door. They can melt up to 2” of snow an hour even in harsher conditions. These are gaining popularity with small business owners too to increase the safety of their customers. Pet owners also love them to save their companion’s paws from the salt and cold!
If you’re looking for other ways to melt the ice in your driveway and walkways, there are plenty of options that either increase friction like using sand, kitty litter, and even garden fertilizer. Snow melting mats work great too and create a comfortable path from your car to your front door to your home, or small business. Alternatively you can use a snow removal company like CF Landscaping.
