    Check this out www.profitsareus.com

    Rates are based on a lot of variables. Day or night, wet or dry snow, packed down or fresh snow, temperature, etc. We have a snow & ice guide that explains this in detail. You can also feel free to give us a call at 495-1351 and I we can answer any questions. Generally 12 - 20lbs per thousand for sodium chloride will do very well. More or less for variables. You can also check out a website called peters chemical company to see rates of applications for many different ice melting materials.

    I know we are in the same market, but there is enough work for everyone. Being in this business since 1979 I can help you get through the school of hard knocks. We offer a great snow & ice management package that has a comprehensive manual and two CDs for calculating time and material. One Cd is also full of templates that are in Microsoft word format and are completely customizable by you for your business.
