Snow removal service was reliable and prompt.

We were away during the winter and hired Property Werks to keep our driveway clear of snow. They were on it, and communicated with me by email every step of the way. I had peace of mind that no one was going to slip on ice on our sidewalk and our driveway would be clear when we got home. I will definitely use Property Werks again. Thanks again!

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!
Christina Hagerty
We have used a number of snow removal companies over the past 20 years and I am most impressed by PropertyWerks! They are timely, communicate through emails and photos and are friendly and efficient! What more could we want? Thank you, Guys, for helping us keep our sidewalks clean!
James Muir
Property Werks has always gone above and beyond to take care of me. I have a very long sidewalk, across from a school no less... This winter season I have noticed that my sidewalks have been cleared every morning before I even wake up! I love the service and so does the parents and students from the school across the street that get freshly cleared sidewalks for their walk to and from school :) Property Werks helps keep my property safe and looking great!

I guess PropertyWerks won my trust for the winter days here... it’s been now more than 3 years in a row to have their snow removal services for us 🙂

Property Werks is the best company for lawn mowing and snow removal. Cristine and her team have been managing my home for almost three years. I appreciate the snow and lawn mowing reports & also value the reports with pics received after they have mowed our lawn or removed snow. I have never had an issue of snow not being removed within 24 hours after it has stopped snowing. I always recommend them to friends, family and coworkers as they have an amazing team. Thank you for such an impeccable service.

Usually a very good, prompt service. Snow is usually prompt and the grass is very good. I will be happy if the lawn clippings are left on the lawn. We will be away all summer so there is no place to put them.
Brian Evert
Snow removal was managed very well this winter, I particularly appreciated the email and pictures each time the driveway was done.
Marie Woron
With medical issues, we are unable to take care of our lawn this year. I emailed Property Werks and Cristine responded almost immediately. I booked them for a yard clean and mowing/shoveling for the year. Tara did an amazing job on the yard cleanup, took photos and Cristine emailed them to me letting me know that it was complete. They were in the yard first thing in the morning, no waiting at all. I have the utmost confidence in them for taking care of our property over the next year.

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.

Service details FAQ

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 and premium service levels?
Premium clients are serviced for any amount of snow. They are seen first on our routes, and mid-snowfall (at our discretion). Standard clients are always serviced within 24 hours of any snowfall above a trace amount.
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?
We start our routes as soon as the snowfall ends. Or, if it seems it will be quite a heavy snowfall, we will begin mid-snowfall and clear your property multiple times. We cannot guarantee a time of day that snow will be cleared, but we always start as early in the day as possible.
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 20cm are exempt from our 24 hour time guarantee. 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 Premium and Standard services there is a 4-week 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 (343) 803-7884 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?
We will come remove your snow once every 24 hours.
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?
Snow is removed within 24 hours of the snowfall stopping. If it's quite a long and heavy snowfall, we start mid-snow and come back multiple times.
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 Ottawa
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 Calgary or Edmonton will be between $170-$220+ 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 MARKET_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.
