    Common Sense Tips for Maintaining Your Driveway

    Driveways are among the most utilized locations of your home, often ignored up until they stain or break. Give them the attention they are worthy of by making repair work quickly. Not just can you extend your driveway’s life and attractive look well into the future, you can save money in the long term.
    Consider these 7 suggestions to assist you care for your driveway:

    1. Prevent fractures

    For driveways, prevention indicates sealing concrete annually and sealing asphalt every couple of years to avoid water from penetrating, freezing and splitting. Tree and shrub roots can cause fractures by pushing up from below. The solution is to get rid of trees near drives or have their roots cut away.

    2. Fill cracks

    If fractures or holes do appear, spot them immediately. Utilize a masonry chisel to remove loose products and brush out the particles before using a crack filler and patching substance. After the substance dries, seal the entire driveway Ensuring your driveway is smooth and level may also help in reducing tripping mishaps when visitors visit your home.

    3. Reduce water on the driveway.

    Clear a 2 to three-inch strip around the edges of the driveway to provide a runoff location for snow and water to reduce its possibilities of permeating the surface. Also, ensure that downspouts empty into the backyard rather than onto the driveway.

    4. Do not salt cement

    Cement salt and chemical de-icers can penetrate surface areas, causing cracks. Both need to be repaired. Rather of salting, use a snowblower or shovel to get rid of snow and utilize options like sand, coffee grounds, alfalfa meal or kitty litter to make surface areas less slippery. To melt ice, think about spraying the surface 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 rake enough to guarantee it doesn’t scrape and damage the driveway surface. If shoveling, use a plastic shovel for unequal surface areas to reduce its risk of capturing on the driveway. Then, either push snow to the side and shovel that off or remove snow a couple of inches at a time while working your method earthward.

    6. Safeguard the edges

    Believe it or not, driveways aren’t developed for heavy trucks. Edges are particularly vulnerable, chipping under extreme weight. So make sure that your car is parked away from the edges and that construction vehicles never park there during house improvement projects.

    7. Clean your driveway

    Getting rid of stains brought on by motor oil, radiator fluid and similar compounds impacts more than your drive’s look. Motor fluids can penetrate up to a quarter inch in concrete and can soften asphalt. Usage non-clumping cat litter to soak up fresh oil, followed by grease-cutting dishwashing detergent and warm water. For older stains, try scrubbing the stain consistently with grease-cutting, naturally degradable cleaners. Make sure to use a regular scrub brush. A wire brush can damage the driveway’s surface.

    Maximize your home with a clean, properly maintained driveway. It not only enhances curb appeal, however simply lasts longer than drives that are neglected. A little maintenance now can bring big returns later on. Discover more about how house insurance can help you protect your investment.
