What is the Remedy for Slick Steps on my Patio?

Answered by Brendan ~ March 30, 2010 ~ Comments

Whenever it rains--and here in Oregon, that's a lot--my wooden patio steps become very slippery. They are made of pressure treated lumber and are only a few years old! What causes this, and how can I fix the problem?

Slippery stairs can be very dangerous and can also open you up to a certain amount of liability. Fortunately, there are products available to cure your slippery steps. There are several manufacturers of self adhesive, non-slip strips that you can stick directly to the steps. These are easily installed and are very effective. There are paint on solutions that also create a non-slip surface. Both types of products are available online. With a little web research you should be able to find the product that will work best for you.
