Non-skid front stairs & walkway


Our front steps need repainting this summer. They get pretty slippery from rain/condensation. Short of covering all the steps and the entire walkway with a lot of non-skid strips, how can we make them safer? I've heard that contractors sometimes add sand to their paint, too.

Details: The porch is wood, and the 7 steps and 30 foot walkway are both concrete. The walkway is at a slight angle down to the sidewalk.

Any advice is appreciated. Thanks!
