Tips To Search For And Hire A Snow Removal Service

When your HOA-managed property is situated in an area that receives snow and ice during winter's months, you need to make sure that snow and ice removal are some of the community's HOA-provided services. The homeowners in the HOA expect certain care to be taken to the property and common areas, and when winter snow falls and ice builds, you need to make sure they are removed for safety and passability. Here are some recommendations to help you provide the best snow removal service for your HOA community.

Consider the Services Provided

When you are looking into a snow removal company for the HOA community, be sure you find out all of the services that they will provide to you and if they cover every area you need them to. For example, if the HOA property includes separate driveways, walkways, paved common areas, and a central road, will the snow removal company handle the snow plowing and shoveling for each paved area? Some companies only provide the truck plow service, and the driver won't complete any individual shoveling of steps or walkways. 

Another good service to make sure is included with the snow removal is to remove ice. Ice can begin to form immediately when the snow begins to fall. This can build up a dangerous layer of ice below the snow, and if your plow service does not spread ice melt products, the ice will remain a hazard on the property. Applying ice melt during the snow removal will also keep the pavement from refreezing when the temperature falls at night.

Look at Emergency Services

You will also want to check into the snow removal company's emergency or after-hours services and make sure they are available. The snow removal service should provide you with an after-hours number where you can call for snow removal after hours if, for example, a snowstorm dumps twelve inches at night and you need your parking area paved before morning to clear the way for the homeowners. 

However, find out if your snow removal service will immediately dispatch their snowplow after-hours automatically so you don't have to worry about requesting snow removal service. You may also want to find out how much snow must fall before they will automatically dispatch a snow removal service.

Use these tips to help you find the best snow removal service for your HOA property.

About Me

New Landscape Makes a Yard Feel New Again

Hi. My name is Martha. My husband Leo and I are empty nesters. The last of our three kids moved out of the home about eight years ago. Since that time, we have talked a great deal about retirement and what we wanted to do with our house. The house is slightly too large for just the two of us, but we already have two grandchildren and from the way our kids talk, we are in for plenty more. We have decided to stay in our home since it has plenty of room for our family to come and stay with us from time to time. The one thing we really wanted to change is the backyard. Leo retired last year, and I’ll be retiring in about six months. We are already talking with the landscape contractor, and I’m excited to share some of our plans with you!
