Question Concrete Resurface Materials

The concrete area of our walkways and small "patio" have degraded and are pock marked due to the previous home owner using salt to remove ice buildup. Rather than completely removing/replacing the entire concrete walks and "slab", I am considering using a concrete resurface material I heard about ("Quikcrete" I believe is the product name). I am open to any other products as well that would do the job.

Since I know very little about concrete work, would a product like this work to apply a new surface onto the existing concrete?

Quikrete Resurfacer is about the most readily available product you're likely to find. Just make sure you follow directions to a "T". Especially directions for surface prep! An improperly applied overlay is about worthless, while a good job should last a while.
From what I've read about the quikrete product, you just mix it up and apply it (to a properly prepped slab) with a squeegee or gauge rake. After it sets a bit you can broom texture it if desired. It's fairly simple. Good luck.
