    Common Sense Tips for Maintaining Your Driveway

    Driveways are one of the most used locations of your home, often overlooked till they stain or split. Provide the attention they are worthy of by making repairs 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.
    Think about these 7 ideas to assist you care for your driveway:

    1. Avoid cracks

    For driveways, prevention means sealing concrete each year and sealing asphalt every couple of years to avoid water from penetrating, freezing and cracking. Tree and shrub roots can cause fractures by pushing up from beneath. The solution is to eliminate trees near drives or have their roots cut away.

    2. Fill fractures

    If fractures or holes do appear, patch them right away. Use a masonry sculpt to remove loose materials and brush out the particles before 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 in reducing tripping accidents when guests visit your home.

    3. Lessen 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 possibilities of permeating the surface. Likewise, ensure that downspouts empty into the backyard rather than onto the driveway.

    4. Don’t salt cement

    Cement salt and chemical de-icers can permeate surface areas, causing fractures. Both need to be fixed. Instead of salting, use a snowblower or shovel to eliminate snow and use alternatives like sand, coffee grounds, alfalfa meal or kitty litter to make surfaces less slippery. To melt ice, consider spraying the surface area with sugar beet juice, which lowers the melting point of ice and is thought about 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 damage the driveway surface area. If shoveling, use a plastic shovel for unequal surface areas to decrease its danger 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

    Think it or not, driveways aren’t designed for heavy trucks. Edges are particularly vulnerable, chipping under extreme weight. So make certain that your car is parked far from the edges and that construction vehicles never ever park there throughout home remodeling tasks.

    7. Clean your driveway

    Eliminating discolorations caused by motor oil, radiator fluid and comparable substances affects more than your drive’s look. Motor fluids can permeate approximately a quarter inch in concrete and can soften asphalt. Use non-clumping kitty litter to absorb fresh oil, followed by grease-cutting dishwashing detergent and warm water. For older stains, attempt scrubbing the stain consistently with grease-cutting, eco-friendly cleaners. Be sure to use a routine 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, but just lasts longer than drives that are ignored. A little maintenance now can bring big returns later. Find out more about how house insurance can help you protect your investment.
