Slip no more!

Winter's on it's way, and I don't know about you, but where I live, that means COLD!!!

It also means slippery walkways and stairs. Very dangerous when you're running out of the house to get to work on time in the morning.

This will be our first winter in our new house, and our first experience with Trex decking for our deck, porch and stairs. While it looks great, and is maintenance free.... it's also apparently very slippery when wet/icy. NO GOOD!

Enter Heattrak snow melting mats! They're used often in commercial settings, but they also have residential products, like this door mat, and of course, stair treads!!!

These babies plug in, and heat up, leaving just a warm, dry space for you to walk!!!

How cool is that???

I think they might be a little out of the budget for us, but they're something to look into if you've got a lot of stairs, or a really slippery, uncovered porch even!!!
