Types of Heated Driveways We Offer in Newmarket

Electric Driveway Heating

With their reliable operation and straightforward installation process, electric heated driveway systems are perfect for medium-sized to smaller driveways, providing cost-effective solutions for winter maintenance. By using mats or electric cables positioned underneath pavers or asphalt, they melt away snow and ice with ease. They're linked to a thermostat, to ensure precise temperature control and optimal performance throughout the season.

Hydronic Driveway Heating

A hydronic driveway heating system utilizes flexible tubing laid beneath the surface of the driveway. This tubing contains glycol, acting as an antifreeze agent. By circulating this glycol through a boiler or heat pump, heat is transferred to the driveway, effectively melting snow and ice. The system's thermostat can be programmed to activate automatically based on driveway sensors.

Hydronic heated driveway systems offer enhanced power, adaptability, and environmental sustainability, especially compared to electric heated driveway systems. They are typically well-suited for larger or abnormally-shaped driveways, providing substantial savings for more extensive projects. With fixed initial costs that incrementally increase with driveway size, hydronic systems offer a scalable and cost-effective option as the driveway's dimensions grow.

Whatever I thought that I wanted for my backyard, was not even close to what I am now enjoying! You guys are absolutely amazing and my expectations are totally exceeded. Just an excellent job in every sense. From plants to sod to steps. Thank you for the great suggestions and the superb workmanship. Can't wait to see how much higher my property is now valued. I've received compliments and requests for referrals no less than 5 times already in the past week. And we have happily recommended Precision each time. Best regards!

Precision Landscaping is a company I would highly recommend to do business with. Steve is a talented designer when it comes to helping you get everything you can out of your yard space. Both Steve and Martein are super responsive, respectful of your time, and knowledgeable in whatever it is you might ask them. Their crew was fantastic, on time, worked hard, cleaned up every day before leaving. Our project took 10 days to complete and we are completely satisfied love it how it turned out. Precision Landscaping gave is the exact space we were hoping to have.

Steve and his crew are great. Our back yard was a muddy, scrubby weed patch. They cleared it out, levelled it, put in a slab for my new hot tub, and installed an awesome paver patio complete with stone benches and a big fire pit. It turned out way nicer than we were hoping for. What was essentially wasted space is now a great backyard hangout area. And we have to note Steve did a great job of suggesting ideas, since we started out a bit unsure of what we wanted the end result to be. We've already recommended them to a couple friends, and we will continue to do so. And in the meantime we'll be cooling off in the backyard.
