make tiles non slip


Postby twina » Tue Dec 01, 2009 9:32 am

i am just about to rent my house out to a young couple as i am moving in with my partner. I own a Victorian terraced house which is set back from the road. Between the front door and the road there is a tiled path, which is the original path and is very stunning. The problems is that if it gets icy then the path can become slippery. i don't not want to rip up the path if i can help it, so i was wondering if anyone had any advice as to whether there is a product which can be sprayed on or painted on and that is see through on the market that will last for a good period of time and make the tiles non slippy. #

thanks in advance.
