Winter Is Here. What Now?

Top 3 Winter Snow Removal Tips

One of the most frustrating parts of winter is the need to remove snow. You might just want to wait until springtime and just let it all melt. Unfortunately, the effort must be made. If you are tired of wasting time and effort on removing snow every winter, it is time to use these 3 snow removal tips for your home to get the job done easier, better, and more effectively than ever before.

Use a good shovel

Shoveling snow during the winter is as annoying as it is. If you do not have a quality tool to work with, you are just making it harder on yourself and your back. While it might be tempting to buy a cheap shovel when you are making your decision, it is wiser to not be a penny-pincher. Spend more money on a heavy plastic or aluminum blade shovel that will get the job done a lot easier.

Use tall stakes around driveways & walkways

In Shelton, WA, we are pretty used to the snowfall. So, when we suggest installing large stakes around your driveway and other walkways, you should use that advice. It is helpful whether you hire a snow removal company, shovel yourself or use a snowblower. While you may think you will know exactly where your driveway is, it is not as easy to locate with a couple of feet of snow.

Avoid piling the snow near the foundation

This is a mistake that a lot of homeowners in this area simply do not consider when they are removing snow. Whether they are removing snow from a roof, from a deck, or the driveway, you should avoid piling snow next to the side of your house. This will only lead to problems such as frozen pipes and even potentially cause cracks in your foundation.
