Non-slip steps

from:Rob

This is the easiest and most attractive way to increase traction on your steps. Or you can buy non-slip tape from your local home center. But the I feel that the strips of tape on steps are very commercial looking and unattractive.

Here's what you can do to make your steps safe without anyone being the wiser. Next time you next to seal or paint your steps, just add a little clean sand. You can use regular sandbox sand that is sold at your local home center. Just mix a couple handfuls of sand with your paint and then just brush on. When it is dry ....instant, almost invisible non-slip surface.
