Ask the Contractor: De-icer options for your Prescott-area winter season

By far the most risk of damage to your concrete during the winter months is attributed to the freeze/thaw cycle. This is the buildup of water (melted ice) being absorbed into porous concrete, which then freezes and expands. This expansion within the concrete triggers pressure to build up, and eventually over time the pressure becomes too much for the concrete to withstand and scaling generally occurs. It’s important to use a de-icer. (Courier stock photo)
