This, corners especially. It might be a week or more until strollers can make it around CH easily.

I've often thought that if I would have the means, a massive communal charity would be to have every corner cleared immidiately after a storm.

I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

Nice breakdown. So even partially DIY, we're talking $20/sqft. I'm sure a larger project would have some efficiencies, but I doubt a contractor job start to finish could be any less than that.

Somewhere in the middle of HomeAdvisor's range:
When you build a new house its worth it, take out the 2500 how much would it be per square foot?

I estimate @ExGingiís solution cost him $9-11/sqft not counting the concrete, but ymmv e.g. because of fixed costs (e.g. electrician) which might cost you more/less.

Check your math. Just the NeverFreeze cables were more than that.

Bad math, oops. Revising.
