    Common Sense Tips for Maintaining Your Driveway

    Driveways are among the most utilized areas of your home, frequently ignored up until they stain or break. Give them the attention they should have by making repair work quickly. Not just can you extend your driveway’s life and attractive appearance well into the future, you can conserve money in the long term.
    Consider these 7 tips to assist you look after your driveway:

    1. Avoid cracks

    For driveways, avoidance means sealing concrete annually and sealing asphalt every couple of years to avoid water from permeating, freezing and breaking. Tree and shrub roots can cause cracks by rising from beneath. The solution is to remove trees near drives or have their roots cut away.

    2. Fill cracks

    If fractures or holes do appear, spot them right away. Use a masonry chisel to eliminate loose materials and brush out the debris before applying a crack filler and patching substance. After the substance dries, seal the entire driveway Ensuring your driveway is smooth and level might also help in reducing tripping mishaps when guests visit your house.

    3. Minimize water on the driveway.

    Clear a 2 to three-inch strip around the edges of the driveway to offer a runoff area for snow and water to minimize its chances of penetrating the surface area. Also, guarantee that downspouts empty into the backyard rather than onto the driveway.

    4. Do not salt cement

    Cement salt and chemical de-icers can permeate surfaces, triggering cracks. Both need to be repaired. Instead of salting, use a snowblower or shovel to get rid of snow and utilize alternatives like sand, coffee grounds, alfalfa meal or cat litter to make surface areas 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 reliable in temperatures as low at -20 ° F.

    5. Rake thoroughly

    Raise the blade of your snow rake enough to guarantee it doesn’t scrape and harm the driveway surface. If shoveling, utilize a plastic shovel for uneven surface areas to decrease its threat 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. Safeguard the edges

    Think it or not, driveways aren’t developed for heavy trucks. Edges are especially vulnerable, breaking under extreme weight. So ensure that your car is parked far from the edges and that construction vehicles never ever park there during house remodeling tasks.

    7. Clean your driveway

    Removing discolorations triggered by motor oil, radiator fluid and comparable compounds impacts more than your drive’s appearance. 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, biodegradable cleaners. Make sure to use a routine scrub brush. A wire brush can damage the driveway’s surface.

    Make the most of your house with a clean, well-kept driveway. It not only boosts curb appeal, but simply lasts longer than drives that are disregarded. A little maintenance now can bring huge returns later on. Discover more about how home insurance can help you safeguard your financial investment.
