How to take care of your concrete sidewalks and driveways this winter

posted by Admin User at 2023-02-03 13:31:00

Its the time of the year when we are faced with slick, icy concrete sidewalks driveways and walkways. Chemical de-icers and salt treatments while effective at making your stairs, walkways, sidewalk and drives less slippery, can contain ingredients that can be harmful to your concrete. Many of the most popular deicing products contain calcium chloride, ammonium sulfates, magnesium chloride, sodium chloride and Urea.  Not only will de-icing agents damage your concrete, they can cause problems with landscaping, pets, children, yourself and the environment.

But who wants to spend the winter slipping on icy sidewalks and stairs?

What does Middle VIllage Construction, Inc. recommend for the winter snow and ice?

We suggest shoveling any snow accumulation before it starts to melt and freezes again, leaving a slippery layer of ice. Then cover the area with sand. While sand does not melt ice or snow, a heavy layer of it should provide a good measure of traction.
