Driveways are among the most utilized areas of your home, frequently neglected until they stain or crack. Provide the attention they deserve by making repairs rapidly. Not only can you extend your driveway’s life and appealing appearance well into the future, you can save money in the long term.
Consider these 7 suggestions to help you care for your driveway:
1. Prevent cracks
For driveways, avoidance means sealing concrete each year and sealing asphalt every few years to prevent water from permeating, freezing and cracking. Tree and shrub roots can cause fractures by pushing up from below. The service is to remove trees near drives or have their roots trimmed away.
2. Fill fractures
If cracks or holes do appear, patch them immediately. Use 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 whole driveway Ensuring your driveway is smooth and level may also help in reducing tripping accidents when visitors visit your house.
3. Minimize water on the driveway.
Clear a 2 to three-inch strip around the edges of the driveway to supply a runoff location for snow and water to decrease its possibilities of penetrating the surface area. Likewise, make sure that downspouts empty into the lawn instead of onto the driveway.
4. Do not salt cement
Cement salt and chemical de-icers can penetrate surface areas, causing fractures. Both need to be fixed. Instead of salting, utilize a snowblower or shovel to eliminate snow and utilize alternatives like sand, coffee grounds, alfalfa meal or kitty litter to make surfaces less slippery. To melt ice, think about spraying the surface with sugar beet juice, which decreases the melting point of ice and is considered reliable in temperatures as low at -20 ° F.
5. Rake thoroughly
Raise the blade of your snow rake enough to guarantee it does not scrape and harm the driveway surface area. If shoveling, utilize a plastic shovel for uneven surface areas to minimize its threat of catching on the driveway. Then, either push snow to the side and shovel that off or eliminate snow a few inches at a time while working your way earthward.
6. Protect the edges
Believe it or not, driveways aren’t developed for heavy trucks. Edges are especially susceptible, chipping under extreme weight. So make sure that your car is parked far from the edges and that construction vehicles never park there during home renovation projects.
7. Clean your driveway
Removing stains brought on 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 soak up fresh oil, followed by grease-cutting dishwashing cleaning agent and warm water. For older discolorations, try scrubbing the stain consistently with grease-cutting, naturally degradable cleaners. Make certain to use a regular scrub brush. A wire brush can damage the driveway’s surface area.
