I want to seal my concrete driveway to reduce winter damage and other things from getting into it.

I used something a bunch of years ago that worked well but no longer available due to VOC concerns. It seems many products are not rated very good. Does someone have a suggestion? Thanks

My suggestion? Don’t bother. Looks nice for a while. Redo every so often. Just another way to spend your bucks.

I am not concerned about looks. Where you are in Mississippi, ice, snow and salt are of no concern. I get them and causes spiralling. I want to protect the concrete. Also, it makes it easier to get snow and ice off

Red, I used some years ago that I got from a commercial concrete store unfortunately I don’t remember the name. IIRC it contains much more solids than what you might find at the borg. It also accepted a gritty additive to provide more traction if your driveway needs in during snow season. It did need to be reapplied periodically depending on how much you shovel. I believe that it worked because I used it on a sandstone walkway and the sandstone didn’t flake off. HTH
