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!

Christine is very lovely to deal with! She answers my questions very promptly. Staff are very punctual - I like it when they send me a photo of snow removals.

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

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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
It's a long winter season here in Calgary, 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.
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.
For sure! Please give us a call at 403-239-1269 or email at service@propertywerks.ca so we can add special notes to your booking. Please note some requests may incur an additional fee.
​We will come remove your snow once every 24 hours.
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.
Snow is removed within 24 hours of the snowfall stopping, aligning with the city of Calgary bylaw for removal. If it's quite a long and heavy snowfall, we start mid-snow and come back multiple times.
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.
We offer residential snow clearing for all Calgary communities, NW, SW, NE and SE.
Ice melt is pretty much salt, sometimes with sand mixed in. Salt lowers the freezing point of water, preventing ice from forming and sand provides traction. 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!
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.
Oops! Please send us a quick note at service@propertywerks.ca so we can come fix it.

Snow Bylaws FAQ

Section 67 of the Street Bylaw requires Calgary property owners/occupants to:Remove a minimum 1.5 meter width of snow and ice down to bare pavement from all public sidewalks bordering their private property within 24 hours of a snowfall ending. Snow or ice removed from a public sidewalk may be placed on public property such as the road or boulevard, provided that its placement does not create an obstruction. All snow and ice removed from private sidewalks must be placed within private property.If not acted on, The City will clear the sidewalk and invoice the property owner for the cost; a minimum $150 and maximum of $750 plus GST and administration fees. If not paid, the invoice amount will be added to the property owner's property tax bill.
The City of Calgary noise restriction generally applies from 10 pm to 7 am Monday to Saturday and 10pm to 9am on Sunday and holidays. However, snow clearing devices powered by an engine of any kind are exempt during the 48 hour period following a snowfall.
You can call 311 and submit a request for the city to come back and remove it. If you have our Premium service, we will also clear any snow that has drifted onto your path since our last service during our routine check-ins.

Pricing FAQ

Residential snow removal from a reputable company in Calgary 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 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.
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!
Yes, we can help service multiple properties. Please get in touch with the office to discuss volume pricing.

What to expect for winter 2020

When is it NOT snowing in Calgary would be a shorter answer! In its history, Calgary has had snow in every month of the year. The snow clearing season in Calgary usually runs from October until the end of April, with the busiest months from November to March. We often receive the heaviest, wettest snowfalls late in the year, the kind that not every snow removal service can handle. Good thing our team has seen it all.
Calgary gets an average of 7-10 days of snowfall per month during the winter. We're not called the great white north for nothing! Our clients average 15 service visits per month.
Check out this handy chart from Environment and Climate Change Canada. Winter 2019 was a big one, nearly breaking the last record set in 1996! With more than 2 meters of snow that season, our clients certainly saw their money's worth.
Last year we had a record amount of snow at the beginning and end of the season. We're still bouncing between the warmer El Nino and the La Nina cycle which can cause unpredictable snowfalls. La Nina is a general cooling of the Pacific Ocean and moves the flow of the jet stream to give us winters with higher snowfall and cooler conditions. This year the El Nino cycle is supposed to strengthen compared to last year (warmer than normal Pacific Ocean temperatures) which can give us warmer than normal conditions but can also cause higher precipitation due to increased evaporation off the coast.
