Brightly colored, two car garage and driveway, ornate walkway, and well-manicured lawn, all work together in harmony to create opulent curb appeal. Upon entrance through the lavish front door, one can feel the warmth of this home. Walking up the hardwood stairs, you are greeted with the living room, with hardwood flooring, large bay window, and neutral wall colors, it is the perfect mixture of luxury and intimacy. Attached is the formal dining room, adorned with beautiful half-length tile work, with continuing hardwood flooring, brightly colored, wooden chair rail, and sliding door to a raised deck and bar-b-que area, promises the joy of future dinner parties. The eat-in-kitchen, with stainless steel appliances, granite countertops, and bright, newer cabinets, will appeal to even the smallest chef in you. The bedrooms, three accessed down the hall from the kitchen, are lush with both space and light, enhanced by the cool, calm colors, and hardwood flooring.

10 Tips for Snow Removal Page 1

Metuchen Real Estate

If you are like us in the Northeast, snow, blizzards, and ice are an unavoidable obstacle in our daily lives between the months of late November and April. But every year, we are reminded how difficult its removal can be, short of buying a snow blower for your walkway or a large decommissioned army tank for your commute to work. Aside from the muscle inducing soreness that comes with the hassle of shoveling, there comes another hardship: damage. So here’s 10 tips that will help you remove those heaps of snow, without inflicting destruction on your property.

  1. Protect Your Plants

Metuchen Real Estate

This is one of those tips that you do before it starts snowing. If you have a flower bed or a garden that you want to avoid looking like a treasure hunt come spring, prior to it snowing, place large metal stakes into the ground, so (unless it’s an absurd amount of snow) you are able to know where to stop digging, without disturbing your plants. If you have large amounts of snow on bigger scrubs in front of your home or along your driveway, experts says “leave it.” If they are loaded with snow, leave them alone, you will tend to do more damage removing snow than if you just didn’t touch them.

2. Use a Snow Melter

Metuchen Real Estate

This is another practice to do before a storm begins. Experts say to use a liquid mix, preferably a Liquid Magnesium Chloride Blend. Use a garden sprayer to apply it to your walkway or driveway prior to the snowfall. This can slowly melt snow up to two inches in accumulations. Wondering how much is enough? Use about one gallon for every 1,000 square feet.

3. Buy The Right Shovel

Metuchen Real Estate

We’ve all seen some random shovel or snow pusher on sale at your local “S-Mart” (you know the stores I mean), but keep in mind, just because something is cheap, doesn’t mean it’s a good purchase. “Look for a shovel with a lightweight plastic or aluminum blade coated with a nonstick finish to make loading and unloading a breeze. Avoid a blade so big you’ll be tempted to overload it; an ergonomic, S-shaped shaft will save your back by requiring less bending. Avoid using metal blades on softer materials, such as wooden decking. A pusher—basically a shovel with a C-shaped blade—is handy for clearing lightweight, fluffy snow. ” – via

4. Don’t Procrastinate

Metuchen Real Estate

The right way to shovel, is to shovel and shovel often. EVEN IF IT’S STILL STORMING. The key is to not let the snow to bond with either your properties surface (freezing), also it’s a lot easier to shovel 2 inches 2 or 3 times, than it is to shovel 7 inches, trust me, I know from experience. And don’t leave a layer of snow between the air and the pavement. You want the pavement to show, so the sun can do its natural job and warm it as much as possible, not allowing ice or more snow to form.

5. Do Not Pile Up

The best thing you can do is avoid having snow near the foundation of your home, SO DON’T HELP IT. It may be out of your way for the time being, but if it’s next to the foundation of your home, that snow can melt, turning it to water, which can easily refreeze. And as we all know from elementary school science class, when water freezes it expands, causing cracks that make your home susceptible to future water damages.
