Erie Snow Removal
When Snow Hits Erie, Are You Ready?
Snowstorms hitting Erie, Pennsylvania are typical of East Coast storms. They hit heavy and leave behind mountains of snow. This snow is not always easy to remove, nor do many people want the hassle and the back strain that comes with it. Thankfully, Erie Snow Removal can help. We provide a lot of snow removal services to ease your winter burdens.
Record Snowfalls Create Record Necessities for Snow Clearing
Having lived in Erie for at least the past few years, you know that this city has had some record setting snowfalls. In 2017-2018, over 166 inches of snow fell here. Then last year, in 2019, about eighty inches fell before the winter was finally over. Just to give you a better idea of how much snow that really is, sixty inches of snow is five feet high!
Plowing by the city only manages so much of that snow on city streets and public walkways. They do not handle commercial properties or parking lots, nor do they provide clearing services to individual residences. That's where Erie Snow Removal comes in. We provide the services the city doesn't, clearing away snow for both residential and commercial property owners.
Commercial Snow Removal Services
Many of the quality services you would expect from snow removal for residential properties are available to commercial customers as well. There are a few differences, of course, but the quality service and professionalism is the same.
Some of the slightly different services provided for our commercial customers include:
A lot of the big equipment used for removing snow from business properties is similar if not identical to the machinery used by the city for removing snow or big construction projects. Those pieces of machinery typically include:
It helps to get ready for this year's seasonal snowfall by requesting services before you need them, especially if you want some of these services while the storms are in full blizzard mode.
Services Provided to Our Residential Customers
As a residential customer you are expected to clear away snow and ice from your walkways and driveways soon after a winter storm ends. Failure to do so results in fines or the city clearing it for you and charging you. Unfortunately not everyone has the time, tools, equipment, health or ability to clear snow away that quickly.
We come in with our tools and equipment and able-bodied employees and provide these services:
In addition to the above residential snow removal services, we also offer snow and ice removal from roofs. When storms and blizzards have brought especially heavy layers of snow, you want that removed right away so it doesn't create an ice dam and cause water damage or structural integrity damage to your roof. The removal of snow occurs when the storm is at its lightest and crews are able to get to you to begin the job.
Additionally, the product we use to remove ice from your roof is the same product we use on your sidewalk. It is a compound that quickly melts frozen precipitation without creating residue or pitting to roofing materials (or to concrete). It is very safe for the environment too, making it preferable to salt and other unpleasant ice-melt chemicals.
Forming a Local Snow Response Plan
The time to secure your snow services is now, not when you are facing a mountain of snow blocking a driveway or piled up in a parking lot. To make sure you have all of the services you want and need this season, you have to create your snow response plan. The local authorities of Erie have such a plan. It involves accumulating mountains of salt for de-icing the streets and hiring tons of drivers for the plows to be on standby when storms hit.
Your response plan isn't quite as involved as all that. All you need to do is contact Erie Snow Removal, request either business or home services for removing snow and de-icing everything, and arrange a seasonal contract for local services. The contract is part of the response plan in that it secures your services in a committed and timely manner all winter.
As for you, it provides peace of mind and the knowledge that you will NOT have to:
You can stay inside your nice warm house or business while the local crew from Erie Snow Removal does all the work. The crew will let you know via text message, phone call, or knock on the door that your service is complete. If you pay in advance for services, you never have to be home or in the office to receive and pay the bill either. A monthly statement for services rendered can be emailed or mailed to you. It's that easy!
