Ice Melt Installation & Warranties
Ice Melt Installation
New England Ice Solutions handles ice melt installation throughout New England, and have flexible warranties to fit any budget. Installation is not as easy as it may look. The first challenge is getting all the materials and the installation crew to the job site and at times that can be daunting … and then we’ve got to coordinate with a local electrician, licensed by state (except our economy solution which the homeowner can plug into an exterior outlet).
The ice melt installation crews are all trained by the owner, Greg Greene. They must have construction experience with an emphasis on exterior work, so they’re comfortable on tall ladders. Every job has it’s unique challenges — for the one pictured above, it wasn’t easy figuring out how to secure the ladders on the deck without leaving any marks. There are quality checks during/after the work is completed to insure we maintain our commitment to each homeowner.
Ice Melt Installation Warranties
We don’t control the weather … although we’d love that if we could. So our warranties focus on labor which is warrantied by New England Ice Solutions, with longer warranty periods based on the solution you purchase.
Once we complete your install, we register your solution with our suppliers to protect both of us. The number of years each material is warranted for is listed in the table above, with the following commitment. Please make sure to continue reading below, to understand what is not covered.
“GSB Services LLC warrants to you, the purchaser, that the products covered by these warranties will be free from defects due to faulty materials or workmanship and that, under normal use and maintenance, the painted finishes will not crack or peel. This material warranty is limited to the exclusions, limitations, conditions, requirements, and legal rights in this warranty.”
