Slippery leaves, below-freezing temperatures, ice, and snow can all potentially cause damage to exterior concrete and concrete steps. The most popular explanation for concrete cracking is the freeze-thaw cycle in the winter. Because concrete can be porous, water from rain or snow can seep below the surface, freeze, expand, and then contract when the water thaws. This expansion and contraction over the fall and winter will cause the concrete to flake or even crack. So, if there are already weak spots, their condition will only get worse this fall and winter.
