I recently had my concrete driveway replaced due to town drainage work. It looks good but is very slippery. I slipped this morning and ended up flat on my back. Any suggestions? I have a call in to the guy that installed it.
It's fine to walk on when it's dry. When it's damp on top it gets slippery.I’d be in contact with whoever installed it. If the water department had it done you might have to go thru them. Contractors may be different and if you signed a release there may not be much you can do. What I don’t understand is why it would be slick in a driveway this time of year. Sounds like it was installed incorrectly. Any pictures of it?
I would agree. They waited too long.Did they broom it? Looks like they attempted it but its not very aggressive.
What kinda shoes were you wearing. Looks broomed but not sure why it cause a slip.It's fine to walk on when it's dry. When it's damp on top it gets slippery.
Flip flops should be illegal on a slip finish like a basement. I don’t know how my kids or wife ain’t busted their heads open sliding around.Know what you mean. Came into the basement with wet flip-flops. Almost sent down. Looked like Ozzie Albies sliding into home.
Please explain on the fiberglass and how it’s wrong.Wrong concrete, they use the one with a lot of fiberglass in it.
Nothing can be done about it that I know of.
Agree. Look at the surface cracks in it. Dried out too fast would be my guess and they didn’t get a broom on it quick enough.Looks like a machine finish to me.
