  • Aggressive deicing with salt
  • Low air content in the concrete mix
  • Maturity issues; late fall placement subjected to freezing and thawing before the concrete develops sufficient strength
  • Improper curing

Scaling is the most common winter damage to concrete surfaces. Water is absorbed into the capillary spaces in the concrete and when the temperature drops, this absorbed water freezes and expands. This creates pressure that forces flakes of the top layers of concrete to loosen from the surface. As the temperature fluctuates from below freezing to above freezing, this process is repeated.
