Concrete driveway ruined from De-icing. Solutions?


I have ~600-700 sq feet of concrete that is completely ruined from De-icing. First winter in a new house and I should have checked to see if it was sealed or not, but why would somebody spend a couple hundred bucks to protect 5,000$+ worth of concrete in north Idaho. Anyways, the entire thing is flaking right off the top, just a very thin layer. Probably 1/4 inch or less. I'm wondering if I have any options at all as far as repair goes, or if Im just gonna have to get it cut out and replaced. Also goes about a foot into the garage.

Concrete probably was not air entrained, you can likely save it with an overlay, google polymer modified overlays, and get a couple of quotes on the cost.

Bush hammer the rest of the driveway and you will have a no-slip surface.

Otherwise, topping as suggested.
