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.

:eek: 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 :whistling2:
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.
