Maine is known for its long, snowy winters. Charlie Dittmar Property Maintenance wants to keep your driveway, walkway, and roof clear of snow all winter long. During the winter, we serve clients on Mount Desert Island only to ensure that snow removal happens promptly. Here are some of the snow removal services we offer.
Maintaining your landscape does not stop in the winter. Snowblowing is less damaging to your driveway or walkway than plowing is. It allows you more flexibility as to where to place snow on your property.
We have both a tractor with a blower and a walk-behind snowblower to clear paths of all sizes. We can come by each time it snows to ensure your driveway or walkway stays clear. We charge between $35 – 70 per driveway or walkway, depending on size, plus $7 – 40 per hour for equipment charges.
Your driveway is not the only part of your property that needs to be cleared of snow. Snow can collect on your roof and cause structural damage to your home. We can prevent this by roof raking or shoveling after every snowstorm. We have a special roof rake that is gentle on your roof’s shingles and structure than traditional shoveling. We charge $300 – 500, depending on the size of your roof, to rake it.
If you’re looking for a faster snow removal solution for your roof, we can shovel it off. We charge $150 – 300, depending on the size of your roof, to shovel it. We provide our own shovels and other equipment. However, we recommend roof raking over shoveling as it is less likely to damage your roof and its shingles.
Other Snow Removal Tasks
Depending on the amount of snow that falls, your snow removal needs may vary. If you are looking to remove or shrink a large snowbank, we can melt it with our Arctic Steamer. This machine can also be used to remove ice dams from gutters. Instead of snowblowing, we can shovel walkways if there is not much snow to remove.
Please note that all work is done by the hour. Our winter and fall rate is $40 an hour, plus a charge for power equipment that ranges from $7-40 per hour. Our spring and summer rate is an additional $10 per hour. Please contact us for an estimate on your specific project.
