Residential Snow Removal

Barnes, Inc. provides residential snow removal services to over 300 customers each and every snowfall. We have a wide variety of different snow removal equipment, and we tailor that equipment to each specific site to reduce the likelihood of damage that can occur when oversized equipment is used. For example, plowing small residential driveways on light snows is not often done, and our use of snow blowers instead of larger equipment such as ATVs and skid steer loaders on sidewalks greatly reduces the risk of damage to these properties. Our shovels are plastic, not metal, to avoid damage to the turf and plantings commonly found adjacent to all hard surfaces.

We further ensure your safety by providing de-icing products for any surfaces. This service is provided at an extra cost to the snow removal, and can be done on an on-call or automatically provided basis. We use treated salt on city sidewalks and most driveways. We apply a product called Professional Ice Melter, which contains sodium chloride, magnesium chloride, calcium chloride, and calcium magnesium. We can provide you with a MSDS (Material Safety Data Sheet) if requested on this and/or any product we use throughout the year. We use this product when treating lead up walks to houses where salt can damage carpet, floor, etc, as well as on stamped and colored concrete driveways and sidewalks. The costs are itemized for this service in Section B on our residential snow contracts.

Vacation or Emergency Snow Removal

Is there a blizzard or ice storm in the forecast? Are there 2 feet of snow hanging over your front porch from an ice dam? Having surgery? Are you going somewhere warm for 2 weeks? 2 months?

No problem! We provide snow removal services on a temporary basis to a wide variety of customers. All you have to do is call us for an estimate, decide on the level of service you want provided, and send in your contract with the dates you need service clearly indicated, either on the contract or on an additional sheet. We’ll take it from there. There is no pre-payment due – we’ll bill you at the end of each month, and send the bill to you somewhere else if you will be gone all winter.


At Barnes, we are dedicated to our customers and their needs. By being proactive in seeking your opinions and listening to your concerns, we are confident that your experience with us will turn your dreams into reality.
