Frequently Asked Questions
HOW MUCH DO RESIDENTIAL ICE RINKS COST?
Costs vary depending on the size and materials. Brackets, board height, netting, lighting, and padding can contribute to the final costs. Average costs range from $1,250 to $3,200 for starter kits including installation. Size range is 20×40 up to a 40×80 for typical sizes quoted.
DOES MY YARD NEED TO BE PERFECTLY LEVEL FOR ICE RINK INSTALLATION?
No. In fact, most yards we install our backyard ice rinks on are not level. The maximum grade differential is 14” without extra support.
HOW LONG DOES A BACKYARD ICE RINK LAST?
Materials can last for many years of service, and accidental damage can be repaired. Generally, the skating season is from mid-December to the beginning of March.
WHEN IS THE BEST TIME FOR ICE RINK INSTALLATION?
The best time to have a backyard ice rink installed is around Thanksgiving or before the ground freezes!
What kind of maintenance is involved?
Treat it like your sidewalk – shovel when needed. Some additional flooding is needed, depending on usage.
What will this do to my grass?
Grass goes dormant in the fall. The liner actually will protect your grass from being saturated with moisture from the snow. In most cases it will be greener and healthier the following year.
What happens when spring comes?
You will need to store the boards and brackets for the following year. Most customers store these in their shed.
