Benefits of Hiring Professional Snow Removal

3 Tips For Hiring Professional Snow Removal

Getting rid of snow on your property is no fun, but it’s something that’s got to get done one way or another. There are many reasons you cannot leave snow on your property, from damage to your home to liability laws and more. The good news is that there are professional services that will take care of your snow fast and easily, and you won’t even have to lift a finger. Let’s take a look at three benefits of hiring a professional snow removal service.

1. Complying with Liability Laws

If you’re thinking you can’t be sued by someone who slips on the sidewalk in front of your home or business, guess again. Some cities even have strict laws stating that you must keep the sidewalk in front of your property safe at all times. Prevent getting sued or fined; hiring the pros is the best way to get rid of the snow without worrying.

2. Avoid Property Damage

One of the biggest problems with snow is the fact that it can damage concrete on your property very easily. This is because the tiny particles get into the cracks and pores in the concrete, melt, then refreeze when the temperature drops again. This causes the ice to expand and create even bigger cracks and pits in your concrete. Ignore this for long enough, and you’ll need to repave. Our professional home care experts at Landmark Exteriors can get rid of the snow, and save you the trouble.

3. Seasonal Service

Have you ever shoveled your driveway only to find that you need to do it again a week later? Frustrating doesn’t even begin to describe this. Instead of stressing yourself out, you should be thinking about getting seasonal snow removal services. As the name implies, when you hire a snow removal company on a seasonal basis, they will get rid of the snow on a scheduled basis. This will keep you worry-free all winter.

Additional Services

How to Cut Your Heating Bills this Winter

Heating bills can be expensive, but there are many affordable ways to keep your home warm during the winter. Here are a few tips to keep you comfortable all season:

Keeping the Heat Circulating During Winter Months

Trapping the warmth your heating system generates is vital to keep your family cozy and warm. You may also want to monitor your thermostat to ensure the heater isn’t running when the house is empty. Some ways to fix these problems include:

Using a Programmable Thermostat

Programmable thermostats are extremely useful. You can design them to automatically turn off while your family is at work or school. You can set it up to turn on an hour before you come home. This will ensure you don’t have to feel cold when you enter the house later in the day.

Installing Storm Windows

Many people like storm windows because they improve the value of a house. They’re also very good at trapping heat. Storm windows keep air from escaping the living space. The hot air continues to circulate within the home, so the heater turns off sooner. This reduces the total amount of energy needed to keep the house warm.

Securing Your Roof

You should consider finding a similar solution for your roof. Securing your roofing is extremely important because heat rises. Warm air eventually rises toward the home’s attic. Securing your roofing can stop the heat from slowly leeching out of cracks. 

If your roof is old, then you may want to have it replaced to seal the heat in. The heat will eventually dissipate, but this process is much slower if it’s harder for it to escape into the atmosphere. You may want to replace your roof’s insulation. The insulation is designed to stop heat from escaping during winter months, but the insulation wears away over time. 

Heat can also escape through small holes in the roof. Professionals may be able to seal these holes using caulk. Replacing the roof is also an option. Roofs made from composition or wood should ideally be replaced every few decades.

Landmark Exteriors can assess your roofing issue. Our qualified professionals will be able to examine the roof and determine the best course of action. Contact us today to schedule an appointment.
