New Driveway This Spring? A Driveway Snow Melt System Sets You Up For Next Winter

Are you planning on getting a new driveway for your home? Whether you’re building a new home or repaving your existing driveway, adding a driveway snow melt system to your plans can help you to more than endure future snowy Massachusetts winters.

How snow melt systems work
A snow melt system will warm your driveway with hydronic technology. Pipes are laid underneath your driveway, and water warmed at a central boiler is brought through the pipes, warming your driveway in the process. As it heats up, snow and ice melt.

Advantages of using a snow melt system
There are several benefits to adding a snow melt system to your driveway:

  • Installing a snow melt system will ensure that your new driveway lasts for a long time, adding to its durability.
  • With a snow melt system, you won’t ever need to worry about shoveling snow or ice off your driveway, or adding corrosive salt and other chemicals that can damage the driveway surface.
  • A snow melt system is automatic, so even if it snows in the middle of the night you won’t wake up with a snowy driveway.

As a bonus, when it’s time to sell your home, a snow melt system can add value. An undamaged driveway is visually appealing to buyers, as well as providing the added feature of a warm driveway during cold Massachusetts winters.

The best time to install a new driveway is in the spring or fall, because warm temperatures are ideal for pouring concrete. And, if you want a snow melt system, it’s more cost-effective to install one when you’re building the driveway rather than adding it later.

Make this winter the last time you’ll ever shovel snow from your driveway by adding a snow melt system to your spring construction plans.
