Salt and Ice
It’s that time of year again when snow and ice cover the ground. This can be a problem for concrete in areas with harsh winters. Salt is often used to melt ice and snow, but it can also cause damage to concrete if not handled properly. Concrete is a hardy material, but salt-soaked concrete can corrode and crumble causing pitting and discoloration. To avoid rock salt damage, you can switch to a different deicer, such as calcium chloride, which works down to -25° F. Not only will you get better performance, but there will be fewer freeze-thaw cycles since it will seldom get that cold outside.
