1. Will my concrete crack?
Yes. Most concrete will crack. Tool cuts and saw cutting of the concrete help control cracking.
2. Should I seal my concrete?
Yes. Sealing helps prevent winter salt damage & makes the surface easier to clean. Sealer should be redone yearly or bi-yearly depending on traffic.
3. Is stamping a driveway a good idea?
This is not a good idea in my opinion. The uneven surface can trap moisture & it’s difficult to maintain in winter. High traffic areas of driveways shouldn’t be stamped.
4. Can I use safety salt on my concrete?
No. Even safety salt type products caution against use on concrete less than a year old. The best defense is to keep the concrete clean & shoveled.
