Yes, minor chipping (sometimes called spalling or scaling) is normal. It is caused by routine use and exposure to the environment.
If you’re having difficulty with concrete chipping, some of these items may be the cause:
- Power washing (we recommend using a broom or blower instead)
- Drips from vehicles
- Snow and ice
- Chemicals and ice melts
While chipping is expected, it is not normal for concrete to disintegrate to the point where aggregate is exposed and loose. If you are having this issue and within the warranty period (1 year), please contact us.
