I highly recamend Property Werks. I used them this past winter for snow removal.They were out in all kinds of terribly cold weather. The few times I had some small complaints, I called Chistine, and she addressed these issues right away. Thanks for sending your photo. I have tried to put a face to one of the kindest, sweetest people I have ever worked with. You have the voice of a very young person but the maturity to deal with any problem in a timely matter.I like the idea of sending photos as soon as the work in finished and have booked their lawn care for this summer.

We highly recommend Property Werks for snow removal as it makes winter so much more enjoyable! We have been extremely pleased with Cristine's prompt & courteous reply to emails and the exceptional quality of snow clearing by Brandon M. After each visit, we receive an email with photos of our property. Many neighbours have been commenting on what a fantastic job Property Werks does. This company really cares about its customers!

I used these guys for snow removal at a vacant property. They had excellent communication. Each service was reported in advance, then verified with a photo. I live in the US, so having the service confirmed was awesome. Thanks guys!

I needed help with snow removal while away last winter. Property Werks was easy to book at competitive rates. The service was excellent and I really liked receiving photos of the completed work. I did not expect that! Great Work, promptly done and piece of mind too!

We've hired Property Werks for one time clean up, annual maintenance, weekly mows, spring/autumn clean ups and snow removal. We have been extremely pleased with the work, and attention to our concerns. Not only is the office friendly, all staff are very courteous who have been to our house over the years.

Amazing service. We have the Premium Service and it is worth every cent! They come out very promptly even at the lightest snowfall and do a great job. It has taken so much stress out of winter for me!

Property Werks has done my snow removal for a number of years I have also had them do my spring and fall clean up. Their quality of work is excellent and their customer service is exceptional. Customers are kept well informed about service by email through their app. Cristine has been a pleasure to work with to meet all my needs. Unconditionally recommend

The Property Werks team did a fantastic job when I hired them to spring-clean my yard. I could never have done all that myself. The yard is neat, tidy and totally free of all the debris of fall and winter. Very pleased with the quality of the work and I would recommend Property Werks to anyone needing yard work.
Robbo “IronInk” Ironink
Awesome job on my new fence! I would recommend Propertywerks to anyone who is looking for a very reliable company not only for fencing, but lawn care and snow removal too. My thanks to the crews who did a fantastic job maintaining my lawn and building my new fence.
Frances M Gentile
Hello Cristine,We just wanted to say thank you for the amazing service. Our clean-up was phenomenal and the Snow Vikings, Jesse and Henry, were fantastic so good we’d be glad to have them back for the fall season. We have 5 trees and they make for a large clean-up no way could we work on it with the same results.Thanks again and take care.

Service details FAQ

I only need vacation coverage. Can you do that?
You can sign up for as little as one month of service. We usually recommend booking the service to overlap your vacation with a bit of time on each side. That way you get a little break from shovelling as you're preparing to go and when you're settling back in.
I'm on vacation or at work, how will I know you're coming and when the work is done?
An email notification is sent as the crew is dispatched! You will receive a notification once the work is completed as well, with pictures of your freshly cleared paths, sidewalks and driveway.
What is the difference between Standard, Premium and Express service levels?
Standard snow removal sites are cleared once the snow stops falling and are at the end of the route. Premium customers get included ice melt, are cleared daily during continuous snow, and are cleared earlier in the route. Express clients get everything Premium clients do but space is limited so they're cleared even earlier in the day.
Do you come out a limited number of times per month and charge extra for the additional times?
We come out as much as needed. Historically the average is about 15 visits per month. There is no extra charge beyond a certain number of visits, just your flat monthly rate.
When will my snow be cleared?
It depends on the service level you select. With Standard service you'll be cleared within 24hr of the snow ending. For Premium clients we aim to have you cleared no later than 5pm and Express clients before 11am. We cannot guarantee an exact time of day that snow will be cleared, but we always start as early in the day as possible.

In the event of snowfalls over 10cm time windows may be suspended as the roads often impede our crews. However sites will still be cleared in order of priority: Express, Premium, then Standard.
Do you have a surcharge for heavy snowfalls?
No, we don't charge more when it snows more, just your flat monthly rate. If you're signed up for our service before a heavy snowfall, it's service as usual. If you're joining our routes after some accumulation has built up, there may be a one-time surcharge to "reset" your property before starting regular service.

Please note that snowfalls in excess of 10cm are exempt from our time guarantees. Try as we might, these days always take longer than expected, as moving through the city is considerably slower with these events.
Am I locked into a snow removal contract?
It's a long winter season across Canada, usually we see five months of heavy snow, but that doesn't mean you have to be locked into a snow removal contract for the whole time. For our snow removal services there is a 1-month minimum commitment, and no penalty for cancelling.
What's your cancellation policy?
There's no penalty for cancelling your service. Come and go as you wish, we're not trying to force you into anything. Of course some heads up is always appreciated.
There are a couple extra areas I would like cleared, can you do them?
For sure! Please give us a call at (647) 695-0892 or email at service@propertywerks.ca so we can add special notes to your booking. Please note some requests may incur an additional fee.
If it snows for several days in a row, how often do you come out?
If you book Premium or Express service we will remove your snow once per day. For Standard sites we'll be out once the snow has stopped.
How early in the day do you come out?
We start as early as 5am and stay out as late as required. On heavy days our team can be going for 15 hours straight.
Is snow removed within 24 hours after it starts snowing? After it stops snowing?
For Standard sites snow is removed within 24 hours of the snowfall stopping. For Premium and Express clients we start mid-snow and come back each day until the snow is over.
What equipment do you use?
Everything to get the job done! For snow clearing we use classic shovels, backpack blowers, snow-throwing machines and ice chippers. We use commercial-grade equipment made by TORO that have poly blades so they won't cause any damage. We also use a proprietary software to make the most efficient routes and send you timely notifications.
What communities do you serve?
We offer residential snow clearing for all communities within the city limits of Hamilton
What is ice melt and how does it work?
Ice melt is a variation of salt. Salt lowers the freezing point of water, preventing ice from forming. A sprinkle of salt on your sidewalk melts light snowfall and slows down or prevents slippery patches from forming. If you have pets, keep an eye on their paws and wipe them off as the salt can be irritating!
What if I don't want ice melt?
No problem. Let us know so we can add a note to your booking. We only use it sparingly, in spots where ice tends to form, since it can be hard on the concrete.
You missed a spot!
Oops! Please send us a quick note at service@propertywerks.ca so we can come fix it.

Pricing FAQ

What is the cost of residential snow removal?
Residential snow removal from a reputable company in Canada will be between $170-$250+ per month for a standard size lot, depending on how many areas need clearing.

Among similar businesses, our rates are very competitive. For our elderly and mobility impaired clients, snow removal isn't a luxury but necessary service. We endeavor to keep our prices as fair as possible.

While there are some great deals to be had browsing the classifieds, if you need a reliable service that can be accountable and prove the work is being done, even while you’re not at home, you may want to hire an established business.
Do you have any deals on snow removal?
If you sign up for our services year-round you will save about 10% on our rates. Also, if you book with a neighbor or friend, you can both take $20 off your first month of snow removal service!
I have a few properties I would like service for, do you have a volume discount?
Yes, we can help service multiple properties. Please get in touch with the office to discuss volume pricing.
