Once winter hits, there will inevitably be ice covering driveways, sidewalks and parking lots. Most people resort to using salt for melting ice, and it does a pretty good job. But what most people don’t realize is that salt, in large concentrations, can be harmful to plants and animals. When we pour a lot of salt on the roads and sidewalks, that salt will eventually run-off into the ground and leave harmful and corrosive deposits. If you are considering using regular de-icing salt to prevent icy spots on your sidewalks or parking lots, consider calling Buchheit Construction first. We use only quality de-icing salt that is safe on the environment.
