J. Campoli & Sons has been plowing snow in Bergen County since the 1960s.  We know what it takes for the proper service of homes and businesses so that they are safe and secure in brutal winter storm conditions.

Too often, we see fly-by-night contractors and landscapers performing last-minute snow plowing and shoveling on homes and businesses in the middle of a snowstorm.  These can lead to dangerous ice conditions and even more threatening slip-and-fall conditions around your home or business!

Here are the reasons you need a qualified snow plowing contractor to perform residential and commercial snow plowing in Bergen County, NJ:

1. Safety

Safety is the most important indicator of a job well done for snow plowing and ice control. An unqualified snow plower is not thorough enough to provide adequate service at your home. They may not entirely clean walking or driving surfaces, and may not have the proper equipment to apply salt or calcium chloride to outdoor surfaces. Their labor will not be properly trained in the application of these chemicals, which can lead to icy conditions, inconsistent application, property damage, and worst of all, physically dangerous site conditions.

Having the proper equipment is a massive step toward performing safe snow plowing and ice control service. Unqualified snow plowers throw a plow on their Jeep and call it good enough. J. Campoli & Sons has a fleet of diesel pickup trucks with a selection of snow plow sizes, three Bobcat skid steers for sidewalk service, as well as two excavators with snow boxes, and two dedicated salt spreaders for the proper service of our clients. This specialized snow equipment is supplemented by the muscle of our regular construction fleet, and makes it so we are able to provide service of any scale for your home or business.

Campoli & Sons is certified by the Accredited Snow Contractor's Association (ASCA) to be current and competent in the best practices of residential and commercial snow plowing and ice control services.

2. Insurance

Your snow plower's insurance is necessary for your peace of mind in the winter months. If an under-insured snow plower or one of their employees experience an injury in the dangerous snow storm conditions while working at your home or business, they will be seeking your insurance as payment for their damages.

If you have a business with walk-in clientele, keeping clean and dry walking surfaces during the winter months is absolutely necessary, otherwise your clients may seek slip-and-fall damages from you. Having regular and prompt snow plowing and ice prevention service will make sure that your walking surfaces are safe for anybody passing through.

3. Long Term Site Maintenance

Your home and business are the largest assets you have in your life. An unqualified snow plowing service can result in damage to your sidewalks, driveways, and structure of your home or business!

Concrete spalling caused by the improper application of rock salt

Unqualified snow plowers apply rock salt to concrete surfaces like sidewalks because it is cheaper than the appropriate ice melt chemicals like calcium chloride. Rock salt permeates concrete and leads to the sidewalk becoming super-saturated with water, meaning it soaks up more water than it can hold. When this super-saturated concrete freezes, it cracks and causes spalling, which is the flaking of your concrete walking surfaces. This means that one bad snow service in the winter can lead to permanent property damage and unsafe walking conditions around your home or business!

Unqualified snow plowers push snow up against the buildings on the lots they plow. Not only does this create a hazardous obstacle to walk around during the storm, it leads to melting and re-freezing conditions close to the building. The building's exterior can soak up this excess water, which will freeze and crack the exterior finish! This is avoidable by using an experienced snow plowing contractor like J. Campoli & Sons.
