    One new contract for this year has a concrete parking lot which is less than a year old.

    What can I use to de-ice this parking lot?

    Ideally you don't want to put anything on new concrete but you can use calcium chloride flake or pellet - just not a large amout, use just enough to melt the ice or snow. You can also try a product called combo therm, we've used it the past couple years and it works great with little to no concrete damage.

    Be sure to put a disclaimer in your agreement. Something like "Not responsible for any damage to new concrete caused by deicing chemicals."

    Does it matter if the concrete is cured or not?

    Thanks for your time.
