Snow & Ice Management
C. Caramanico & Sons, Inc. understands that you can’t afford to be closed because of snow and ice.
We leverage our leading-edge technology, industry best practices, and safety procedures to effectively address your snow and ice problems while preserving the landscaped areas of your property. We have serviced over 500 acres of parking and one-half million square feet of pedestrian walkways. Our focus is to keep your property free of snow and ice, so your winter is safe and worry-free.
COMMITMENT TO SUSTAINABILITY: C. Caramanico & Sons, Inc. has been incorporating salt brine into our winter weather management programs since 2018. Salt brine benefits the environment as well as your road surfaces. The biggest reason for C. Caramanico & Sons, Inc. to lower the use of regular rock salt is the negative environmental impact. Traditional salt can make its way into lakes and other waterways, burn the landscape, and have other negative implications.
Salt brine uses only a fraction of salt, it is much less harsh on the environment. In fact, one truckload of brine will cover the area of 4 full truckloads of salt. When you apply brine, the liquid mixture is less likely to contaminate nearby freshwater, thus protecting plant and animal life.

What our clients are saying...
“I am writing to thank the entire Caramanico Team for their hard work and dedication in clearing our driveways, sidewalks and parking lots. The winter has been particularly challenging with the numerous ice storms and extreme cold weather. Your team was responsive and respectful of the challenges that a hospital faces during extreme weather condition.
In particular, I’d like to recognize Matt Tansey who, during the most recent storm, worked 24 hours straight on site, managed the crews and even took the initiative to assist numerous employees in cleaning off their cars. He has been singled out by many of our employees who wanted to know who they should thank for the great service.
Thanks for being a great partner with our organization.”
