Yes it can if salt and a plastic snow shovel is used. If a snow plow,steel shovel,pick goes over the driveway it will tear it up. I lived up north and I would not put an overlay on a driveway where you get lots of snow and ice. Just my 2 cents.

Along the same line of thought, regardless of the type of sealed/decorative concrete ...

The use of any deicing compound containing ammonium nitrate and/or ammonium sulfate with a winter maintenance program is "strickly prohibited." These chemical deicers rapidly attack and disintergrate many types of sealers and deteriorate concrete or other cementatious based systems. Those containing magnesium chloride can also cause moderate damage.

Suggest that those of you who specialize in decorative concrete "exterior" system placement/applications in the north add this statement to your "proper cleaning and maintenance guildelines" you provide your customers with for C.Y.A. measures!
