Roads across the West Midlands are often made impossible to use thanks to flurries of snow. Worse, this surface snow can often melt and refreeze, creating dangerous patches of ice. These pose a serious risk for vehicles and pedestrians alike and need to be carefully removed and controlled. Here at Cookes Contracts Ltd, we deliver essential gritting, snow clearance and ice control services for customers across the county. We deal with public and private roads, car parks, buildings sites, pedestrianised areas, and more.
Based in Solihull
Our fleet of road gritters are available seven days a week, covering a 15-mile radius around our office. This takes in all of the West Midlands and some surrounding areas, including Solihull itself, Birmingham, Leamington Spa, Redditch, Warwick, and beyond.
Reliable Road Gritting & Salt Gritting in Solihull & Birmingham
As your local salt gritting specialists, we have much to offer our customers across the West Midlands, and beyond. Here are a few of our more popular services...
Winter Maintenance Services
Snow clearance, ice control, and salt gritting all fall under the general umbrella term of winter maintenance. Here at Cooke Contracts Ltd, we have years of experience providing these services to customers across the West Midlands. We work with local authorities, commercial businesses, and private customers alike to keep roads and other areas of the county clear.
Salt Gritting Solutions
The most effective way to get rid of snow and ice on the road is to apply a layer of rock salt. This useful material melts the ice by reducing the temperature at which it freezes to well below zero. Our road gritters spread their grit quickly and evenly across the road surface, making it safe for traffic.
Snow Clearance Services
While salt gritting might do the job for public roads and private roads, there are other areas that need clearing where our gritting trucks cannot reach. When it comes to car parks, retail areas, pedestrianised zones, and so on, we perform any necessary snow clearance by hand. We remove the snow, applying grit to prevent ice from forming.
Once the initial layer of ice has been removed from the road surface, any moisture left behind can soon freeze over again. This second layering of ice is often thicker and more hazardous than the original. At Cookes Contracts we use the right salt gritting materials to lower the freezing temperature of the water and prevent this from happening.
There When You Need Us
Being a landlocked county, the West Midlands experiences some level of snowfall most winters and it can appear out of nowhere. This makes it difficult to plan ahead for your salt gritting and snow clearance needs. At Cookes Contracts Ltd, we understand this, which is why we make ourselves available for our customers seven days a week.
