I have an outdoor walkway that was freshly painted just before I bought my house two years ago. Two winters have worn down the paint and now it needs another coat or the exposed concrete will crumble.
I have two goals with re-painting the walkway.
Protect the concrete (this is a must)
Add a non-slip texture (this is not necessary, but would be nice to have)
To these ends, what type of paint should I use that is not slippery in cold, wet winter weather?
For point 2, is it possible to mix in gritty sand without compromising the paint? Or should I paint the walkway with some 'concrete safe' paint, then add a non-slip layer on top?
The walkway will need to be shoveled, will adding a layer of non-slip grit make the paint more prone to chipping?
