    Common Sense Tips for Maintaining Your Driveway

    Driveways are one of the most utilized areas of your home, typically neglected till they stain or break. Provide the attention they deserve by making repairs quickly. Not just can you extend your driveway’s life and attractive look well into the future, you can save loan in the long term.
    Think about these 7 pointers to help you look after your driveway:

    1. Avoid cracks

    For driveways, prevention means sealing concrete yearly and sealing asphalt every couple of years to prevent water from permeating, freezing and breaking. Tree and shrub roots can cause cracks by rising from beneath. The service is to eliminate trees near drives or have their roots cut away.

    2. Fill fractures

    If cracks or holes do appear, patch them right away. Use a masonry chisel to get rid of loose materials and brush out the debris prior to using a fracture filler and patching compound. After the compound dries, seal the entire driveway Guaranteeing your driveway is smooth and level might also help in reducing tripping accidents when guests visit your home.

    3. Decrease water on the driveway.

    Clear a 2 to three-inch strip around the edges of the driveway to provide a runoff area for snow and water to lower its chances of penetrating the surface. Also, guarantee that downspouts empty into the lawn instead of onto the driveway.

    4. Don’t salt cement

    Cement salt and chemical de-icers can penetrate surface areas, causing fractures. Both should be repaired. Rather of salting, use a snowblower or shovel to get rid of snow and use alternatives like sand, coffee premises, alfalfa meal or kitty litter to make surface areas 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. Plow thoroughly

    Raise the blade of your snow plow enough to ensure it doesn’t scrape and damage the driveway surface area. If shoveling, use a plastic shovel for unequal surface areas to minimize its danger of catching 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 way earthward.

    6. Safeguard the edges

    Believe it or not, driveways aren’t designed for heavy trucks. Edges are particularly vulnerable, cracking under extreme weight. So ensure that your car is parked far from the edges and that construction vehicles never ever park there during house improvement jobs.

    7. Clean your driveway

    Removing stains brought on by motor oil, radiator fluid and comparable substances affects more than your drive’s look. Motor fluids can penetrate up to a quarter inch in concrete and can soften asphalt. Use non-clumping cat litter to soak up fresh oil, followed by grease-cutting dishwashing detergent and warm water. For older discolorations, try scrubbing the stain repeatedly with grease-cutting, eco-friendly cleaners. Be sure to use a regular scrub brush. A wire brush can damage the driveway’s surface.

    Take advantage of your home with a clean, well-maintained driveway. It not only boosts curb appeal, but merely lasts longer than drives that are neglected. A little maintenance now can bring huge returns later. Discover more about how home insurance can help you safeguard your investment.
