How to Care for Rosetta Pavers in Winter
Metal snow shovels and snow blower blades can pose a risk of damaging concrete surfaces. When clearing snow from Rosetta Hardscapes products, it is recommended to use plastic blades or guards on snowplows, snow blowers, and shovels. The use of de-icing salts is discouraged, as it can cause damage to the concrete. Please note that damage resulting from snow removal, de-icing, or improper loading is not covered under the Rosetta Hardscapes warranty.
