Putting our Customers First

The harsh Canadian winter can be tough, so when you’re clearing snow please keep the following in mind:

  • Shovelling with a plastic shovel is fine
  • Snow blowers are fine as long as their blades never touch the concrete, and as long as the guides are not sharp, as that can scratch your driveway
  • Snow ploughs (a truck with a blade) must have a plastic guard otherwise the metal can scratch the driveway

Ice Melting Products

Manually removing snow is much safer than using chemicals!

If you do need to use a deicing product, we suggest brick sand as this will absorb water and won’t harm the surface like products containing ammonium nitrate or ammonium sulfate. Repeated use of chemicals can cause a slow but damaging erosion of your concrete surfaces. If you do need to use a chemical product, we strongly urge you to wait until your driveway is at least one year old.

If the weather is warm enough, just spraying water can remove/reduce salt and other chemicals that have collected on your driveway.

If you have any questions, please ask us – let’s make sure your driveway stays in great shape!
