What Road Salt can do to Concrete

ImagePicture is of a stamped concrete driveway that was damaged by salt that was brought onto this driveway by cars that collected road salt from highways and streets and as the salt drips on the driveway this is the result.

Damage does not show up immediately but will occur over a relatively short period of time. This could have been prevent by using Salt Guard on the new concrete prior to sealing.

Fortunately this can be repaired effectively since it was installed using Color Hardener rather than Integral Color ( Coloring Concrete in the Truck) We will ask to repair this and will show the result of a professional fix.
