Driveways are one of the most used areas of your house, frequently ignored until they stain or split. Give them the attention they deserve by making repairs quickly. Not only can you extend your driveway’s life and appealing look well into the future, you can conserve loan in the long term.
Consider these 7 suggestions to help you take care of your driveway:
1. Avoid cracks
For driveways, avoidance means sealing concrete each year and sealing asphalt every few years to prevent water from permeating, freezing and breaking. Tree and shrub roots can cause fractures by rising from beneath. The option is to get rid of trees near drives or have their roots trimmed away.
2. Fill fractures
If fractures or holes do appear, patch them right away. Use a masonry chisel to eliminate loose products and brush out the particles prior to applying a fracture filler and patching substance. After the substance dries, seal the entire driveway Ensuring your driveway is smooth and level may also help reduce tripping accidents 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 supply a runoff area for snow and water to lower its chances of permeating the surface. Likewise, ensure that downspouts empty into the yard rather than onto the driveway.
4. Do not salt cement
Cement salt and chemical de-icers can permeate surface areas, causing cracks. Both should be fixed. Rather of salting, use a snowblower or shovel to get rid of snow and use options like sand, coffee grounds, alfalfa meal or kitty litter to make surface areas less slippery. To melt ice, consider spraying the surface with sugar beet juice, which reduces the melting point of ice and is considered efficient in temperature levels as low at -20 ° F.
5. Rake thoroughly
Raise the blade of your snow rake enough to ensure it does not scrape and damage the driveway surface. If shoveling, utilize a plastic shovel for uneven surfaces to reduce its risk of catching on the driveway. Then, either push snow to the side and shovel that off or remove snow a few inches at a time while working your method earthward.
6. Secure the edges
Believe it or not, driveways aren’t designed for heavy trucks. Edges are especially vulnerable, chipping under excessive weight. So make certain that your car is parked away from the edges and that construction vehicles never park there throughout home remodeling tasks.
7. Clean your driveway
Eliminating stains triggered by motor oil, radiator fluid and similar compounds affects more than your drive’s look. Motor fluids can penetrate as much as 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 spots, try scrubbing the stain repeatedly with grease-cutting, biodegradable cleaners. Be sure to use a regular scrub brush. A wire brush can damage the driveway’s surface area.
