With all these snowstorms/blizzards hitting us - it is too much to handle to shovel on my own. I need a reliable snow plow service to remove snow from my driveway, and clear snow from my walkway. Would want the plow drivers to come early in the morning so I can get to work on time.

Which type of salt is best? Magnesium Chloride, Calcium Chloride, or Sodium Chloride (Rock salt)? Are there any other alternative de-icers (liquid ice melter)? Are ice melt salts safe for asphalt, cement, or grass, plants, and other vegatation?

Our usually snowfall from a storm is 3-8 inches, so it needs to be able to clear that amount. My neighbor has a Toro, are those any good?

Posted Feb. 5, 2011 by jheyun (49) +
With all this heavy snow accumulating, ice dams forming, I am worried about my roof collapsing. I heard of roofs of schools and office buldings falling in and injuring people inside. The pitch of my roof is not very steep, and I have a flat area over my porch area. Is there some inspection to know if my roof will not cave in, or if the roof can hold the weight of snow and ice.

Want rentals BEFORE going to our local ski mountain. Ski rental packages can be more expensive with questionable quality equipment. Also takes time to rent skis at the mountain. Looking for a local place where I can rent them for a few days beforehand.
