    I have a shopping center that is just being built. They have an area of parking and loading/unloading that is all green concrete. I need to come up with a method of ice control on this 40,000 sq ft area. I normally use rock salt but I am concerned over the potential damage that may result. Cost is of some concern because this was not included in the original contract and it would be an additional expense to the client. They have expressed concern over any substantial additional expenses. I'm looking for some suggestions on what I should recommend for this situation. In the mean time I have agreed to salt it lightly only when absolutely necessary. I'm not crazy about doing that but have no better ideas as of yet.

    Well after I posted this I did a search and found multiple other posts on this subject. It doesn't look like there are many good options and my agreement to salt it on a limited basis may not be a wise idea either. I leave this post up in hopes someone will have the magic answer (no pun intended) I'm not sure thats the cure all product either how ever many people seem to swear by it.
