How do I care for my new concrete step in winter?
You can help maintain concrete by shoveling the snow from your sidewalk and steps. By keeping the snow cleared, there is less chance that it will compact down, freezing into the surface. Use a plastic shovel instead of a metal one. Bent/sharp corners of a worn metal shovel can damage the surface.
Is it okay to use salt as a deicer?
The short answer is NO. Salt or any other deicers should not be used because they can damage your concrete. The best way to keep your concrete safe in the winter is to keep it clean with a plastic shovel and use sand for traction.
Do I need to seal new concrete?
Yes. It is recommended by concrete experts to seal your concrete every year. Choose your sealer carefully to make sure it will protect your investment. There are many sealants available for all surfaces that will protect from effects of salts. There are also sealants with grip additive built into them that can increase traction.
