Concrete Driveway

I have a concrete driveway that a year after installation started to turn a sandy brown around edges. It increasingly got worse and the brown areas are quite large. When it rains (which we average 105 inches a year )the areas turn slimy. No answers form installer or supplier as the both came out to take a look and even brought a Lehigh rep with them. I am about 175 miles from any pro that could do an overlay. Any suggestions on what to do? Thanks, Shane

1st guess is aggregate w/hi iron content but 'slimy' prompts no wag ,,, o'lays aren't difficult IF you find the right product AND have good distributor support,,, we always thought elitecrete was the best across the board (no financial interest),,, as in everything else in life, nothing works IF the underlying strata is sub-par
