I have a driveway that is just 6 months old and its surface is wearing away and showing the stone-like base. I believe they call it spalling. What is the best way to stop the deterioration? Is there some kind of sealer that will stop this? I've heard of a product called Masonry Saver. Will that work or is that just a short term solution? Is there a better product out there? Does it need to be ripped out? Can we salvage this driveway? The driveway was poured in the summer during the drought, so it did not have excess rain on it. I live in North Carolina where the weather is not so severe, although we did have a week long ice storm in December. In order to protect our driveway, we chose to let the ice melt naturally and did not use any salt or plows to break up the ice, so I doubt weather had anything to do with the problem. I have heard that this problem is often due to too much water in the concrete mix. Is this true? What else could cause this? Where can I go for help if the contractor won't repair this? I need a second opinion on the extent of the damage. How should I go about this? I want to save this driveway if at all possible. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
