Well, if last winter taught us anything, it’s that a bit of snow can really cause some big problems. There was some pretty serious disruption last year. Don’t get us wrong, snow is nice for a little while… about as long as it takes for your local council to run out of grit for the roads.
Snow and ice can make some surfaces treacherous to walk on. That’s why clearing snow and ice off driveways is such an important task in countries where it really, really snows. Hence the famous American snow-shovel.
If you’ve made the sensible choice of investing some of your home improvement budget in having a pattern imprinted concrete driveway installed, there are a few things you should be aware of.
Because your pattern imprinted concrete is protected by a coat of sealant, it shouldn’t be adversely affected by ice. However, if you’re going to attempt to scrape and shovel ice and snow off your pattern imprinted concrete driveway, you may risk scratching away this sealant, so it pays to be gentle. Also, we’d recommend that you take care when it comes to chemical de-icing products. These shouldn’t be left in contact with any surface for an extended period of time, and sometimes aren’t too good for your lawn and any flowers you might have around the driveway area.
