Did you catch the report from The Farmer’s Almanac last month? If you missed it, here’s what we’re looking at for Winter 2013-2014:
“The Days of Shivery are back! For 2013-2014, we are forecasting a winter that will experience below average temperatures for about two-thirds of the nation.
With a combination of below-normal temperatures and above-normal precipitation, the stage will be set for…New England to receive lots of snow.
Significant snowfalls are forecast…. Over the Northeast, we are “red-flagging” the first ten days of February for possible heavy winter weather. And mid-March could bring a wave of storminess….”
Unless you plan to become a snowbird and head to Florida this winter (which may not be a bad idea!), it’s important to get prepared. The last thing you want to be thinking about when snow drifts are piled up outside your door and your walkway is a sheet of ice is where to get your ice melt. Let us help. When we come out to winterize your irrigation system, we can help you stock up with ice melt to keep your driveways and walkways clear.
As in previous seasons, we’ll once again be offering contractor-grade ice melt this season. Our product is the same quality as that used at banks, colleges, condo units, and corporate businesses. We’ve switched back to Advance High-Tech Commercial Ice Melter, which we’ve used in the past.
WHAT QUANTITY CAN I GET?
We can deliver 50-lb Poly bags or 10-lb Shaker jugs of Advance High-Tech Commercial Ice Melter. You can order as many as you want or need.
WHAT IS THE COST?
We are able to secure a discounted price due to the increased purchasing power that comes with large-quantity orders. The 50-lb Poly bags are $16 and the 10-lb Shaker jugs are $8. (Though the cost of the Poly bags is $1 more than last year, you are getting 10 more pounds of ice melt than last year’s 40-lb bag provided!)
HOW DO I GET IT?
We’ll deliver your order to you when we come to winterize your sprinkler system, saving you the trip to the store later during inclement weather.
WHAT IS THE ICE MELT’S QUALITY?
The bags are homeowner-friendly, but the contents inside are professional-grade (a MUCH higher quality than what you would pick up at a Home Depot or Lowe’s – and at a comparable or even cheaper price)!!
Advance High-Tech Commercial Ice Melter is HOT! It is the safer formulation with corrosion inhibitors and fast-acting, long-lasting ingredients that start melting ice almost immediately upon application.
The product is safe for walkways and patios, with a special orange color coating that helps to ensure it is not over-applied, making your money go further.
Here are a few of its additional benefits:
- Works to -25° F
- Fast-acting time release formula
- Traction control
- Safer to handle
- Safety-coated orange crystals
