Ice-proofing a walkway


Hey all,

I'm wondering if there is any sort of coating I can apply to my walkways that would melt the snow or ice... like a calcium chloride-based coating or something similar. Do those exist? I suppose I could always run a heat coil under my sidewalk.

there ain't any. unless you install a heating coil under your side walk to melt it as you say. Why not try that out

heating coil goes in the sidewalk when you pour. If you're serious about this you need to look at a recirculating liquid system that is heated. Electric coils will cost you more than the electric bill for the entire house.
