Cobble Stone
High
– High density stone resists cracking and salts.

Stamped Concrete
Low
– Subject to deterioration from de-icing salts. Surface sealer may provide some protection from salt attack.

Clay Paver
Moderate-
Salts can attack and deteriorate some clay pavers.

Ordinary Concrete
Low
– Cracks from freeze-thaw, settlement and deteriorates from salts.
