Can I use rock salt or ice melt on a TimberTech deck?

As with any walking surface, TimberTech decking products may become slippery in winter weather. Use caution when walking on your TimberTech deck in these conditions. Most products containing calcium chloride can be used without damage to the deck/porch surface. These products may leave a white residue which can be cleaned using the cleaning guidelines above.

Metal shovels or plastic shovels with a metal leading edge may damage the surface of TimberTech decking and are not recommended for clearing snow from the deck surface. For more information, visit our Care and Cleaning section.

If you need a pet-friendly option, most products containing magnesium chloride can be used without damaging the deck surface.
