Disclaimer: Salt does not cause asphalt to deteriorate. If professionals correctly installed an asphalt driveway, parking lot, or roadway, the pavement’s integrity won’t be affected by salting. Salt will only affect asphalt that’s in rough condition and already deteriorating at a rapid pace. That’s not the case for concrete surfaces, however.
Winter isn’t due to part ways with us soon, and so neither are its icy and slippery conditions. Odds are, you’ve used salt on your concrete steps, sidewalks, or driveway. But that isn’t a great idea because over-salting can cause concrete to deteriorate quickly.
