Toronto Heated Driveway Installation
Waking up with driveways covered in snow and ice is a reality that most of GTA’s Homeowners have to deal with for about 4 to 5 months every year.
We know that snow and ice buildup on driveways are a nuisance but an ice-covered driveway can be very dangerous too as a recent report by Toronto Public Health shows that about 3,000 people arrive at the emergency room every year in Toronto alone.
There are many reasons why a heated driveway is a great idea but having M.E. Contracting, installing a heated driveway at your home tops them all.

The main benefits of a heated driveway that have made them popular with so many of the GTA’s homeowners include:
- Minimize slip and fall accidents and injuries
- Minimize the need to shovel a large driveway.
- Heated Driveways require no maintenance.
- Increase Property Value
- Keep Your Driveway looking New
Heated Driveway Installation Process
Installing a heated driveway system is not as simple as it sounds as it requires professional pavers, electricians, and careful planning to make sure the system will perform properly in years to come. M.E. Contracting has installed dozens of heated driveways in the past and our crews are very familiar with the step-by-step process required to install a system.
Heated Driveway Anatomy
M.E. Contracting uses heating cable mats, made of cables woven together in a grid pattern.
These mats are embedded beneath the surface of the driveway and when the cables heat up, they transfer heat across the driveway, preventing the snow from hardening and turning into ice.
Where M.E. Contracting’s professionals shine during the installation process with the matriculate work and attention to detail.
Our crew will first prepare the driveway, lay gravel then lay the cable mats, ensuring they are properly set above the layer of gravel, making sure they have proper “padding” and then connect the system to the home’s electrical panel.
Once the system is tested to ensure work was done properly, we will then pour another layer of gravel, then add the interlocking bricks, concrete, or asphalt.
