Our Flagstone Rubber Pavers are freeze/thaw stable, so they will be able to handle the seasonal temperatures. These tiles are made from the same material your car tires are made of. If you do need to shovel snow off of the tiles, you can do this, but we recommend using a plastic shovel. If you use a metal shovel, there is potential for you to damage the tiles. Since these tiles are made of rubber, they are very slip resistant and are actually more slip resistant when wet. Now if there is ice on the tiles, you will need to use sand or salt to regain the traction that is lost.
