Since the use of deicing chemicals can potentially cause damage to your concrete, it is important to note that this damage may not be covered by your warranty.
All areas of Northeast Ohio use deicing products on city streets, county roads and state highways. When these de icing agents melt from under your car, they end up on your pavement . When this happens, as conditions permit, hose off accumulations of salt deposited by cars on newly placed driveways and garage slabs. This keeps these chemicals from leaching into the pores of the concrete. Annual application of a high quality sealer will protect the concrete from damage from these chemicals used to de ice roadways. The best reassurance to having a long lasting concrete project, is to hire a reputable contractor specializing in concrete.
