Driveways are among the most used areas of your home, often neglected till they stain or crack. Give them the attention they are worthy of by making repairs rapidly. Not only can you extend your driveway’s life and attractive appearance well into the future, you can conserve cash in the long term.
Think about these 7 tips to help you look after your driveway:
1. Prevent fractures
For driveways, avoidance indicates sealing concrete yearly and sealing asphalt every few years to avoid water from permeating, freezing and cracking. Tree and shrub roots can cause fractures by rising from below. The solution is to get rid of trees near drives or have their roots trimmed away.
2. Fill cracks
If fractures or holes do appear, patch them right away. Utilize a masonry chisel to remove loose products and brush out the debris prior to applying a fracture filler and patching compound. After the substance dries, seal the entire driveway Ensuring your driveway is smooth and level might also help in reducing tripping mishaps when visitors visit your house.
3. Decrease water on the driveway.
Clear a two to three-inch strip around the edges of the driveway to offer a runoff area for snow and water to lower its opportunities of permeating the surface. Also, make sure that downspouts empty into the yard rather than onto the driveway.
4. Do not salt cement
Cement salt and chemical de-icers can penetrate surfaces, causing cracks. Both must be repaired. Instead of salting, use a snowblower or shovel to eliminate snow and use options like sand, coffee grounds, alfalfa meal or kitty litter to make surfaces less slippery. To melt ice, think about spraying the surface area with sugar beet juice, which reduces the melting point of ice and is considered effective in temperatures as low at -20 ° F.
5. Rake carefully
Raise the blade of your snow plow enough to guarantee it does not scrape and harm the driveway surface. If shoveling, use a plastic shovel for unequal surface areas to decrease its risk of capturing on the driveway. Then, either push snow to the side and shovel that off or get rid of snow a few inches at a time while working your method earthward.
6. Secure the edges
Think it or not, driveways aren’t designed for heavy trucks. Edges are particularly vulnerable, breaking under extreme weight. So ensure that your car is parked far from the edges and that construction vehicles never ever park there throughout home improvement jobs.
7. Clean your driveway
Removing stains caused by motor oil, radiator fluid and similar compounds affects more than your drive’s look. Motor fluids can penetrate approximately a quarter inch in concrete and can soften asphalt. Use non-clumping cat litter to absorb fresh oil, followed by grease-cutting dishwashing cleaning agent and warm water. For older discolorations, try scrubbing the stain consistently with grease-cutting, biodegradable cleaners. Be sure to utilize a routine scrub brush. A wire brush can damage the driveway’s surface area.
