Question of the Week

Q: My carport casts a shadow over the end of my driveway and the sidewalk in front of it. When the temperature gets cold enough, the driveway freezes and it’s dangerous for me and others to walk on it. What can I do to prevent this from happening?

A: One thing that will help is to create a texture on the surface of the concrete. The easiest way is to stain it! Staining concrete penetrates the pores of the concrete and will make it last longer.

Another way is to use a clear masonry sealer that you apply with a roller. If you use a masonry sealer, put a few handfuls of playground sand in it and mix it throughout the application. The texture will be similar to sandpaper to prevent an unwanted ice rink!
