Hey guys, figured I'd checkout what the collective wisdom here does in situations such as this.

Huge apartment complex, and I'm the entryway roofer. Unfortunately the buildings are surrounded in sidewalks/parking lots. All brand new. Showed up to the site this morning and the whole place is one big sheet of ice.

The ice isn't going anywhere anytime soon, and we can't wait til spring to do these things. Don't want to hack at it with a claw hammer because of the obvious risk of damaging the flatwork.

I need to figure something out though so I can set my ladders and get my guys on these things.

Regular ice melt i'm iffy about, don't want to scale the flatwork either.

What do you guys do/what have you done in situations like this. I need to safely get my ladders set for these guys.

Thoughts?
