    Common Sense Tips for Maintaining Your Driveway

    Driveways are one of the most utilized areas of your house, often neglected up until they stain or break. Provide the attention they should have by making repairs rapidly. Not only can you extend your driveway’s life and attractive look well into the future, you can conserve loan in the long term.
    Consider these seven pointers to assist you look after your driveway:

    1. Prevent fractures

    For driveways, prevention implies sealing concrete annually and sealing asphalt every few years to prevent water from penetrating, freezing and cracking. Tree and shrub roots can trigger cracks by rising from below. The option is to eliminate trees near drives or have their roots trimmed away.

    2. Fill fractures

    If cracks or holes do appear, patch them instantly. Utilize a masonry chisel to remove loose materials and brush out the particles before using a fracture filler and patching compound. After the substance dries, seal the entire driveway Ensuring your driveway is smooth and level may also help in reducing tripping mishaps when guests visit your house.

    3. Reduce 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 minimize its possibilities of penetrating the surface. Likewise, guarantee that downspouts empty into the lawn instead of onto the driveway.

    4. Do not salt cement

    Cement salt and chemical de-icers can permeate surfaces, causing fractures. Both should be repaired. Rather 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, consider spraying the surface area 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 plow enough to ensure it does not scrape and damage the driveway surface. If shoveling, utilize a plastic shovel for uneven surface areas to reduce its risk of capturing 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 way earthward.

    6. Protect the edges

    Believe it or not, driveways aren’t designed for heavy trucks. Edges are especially susceptible, cracking under excessive weight. So ensure that your car is parked far from the edges and that construction vehicles never ever park there during house renovation projects.

    7. Clean your driveway

    Removing spots caused 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 kitty litter to soak up fresh oil, followed by grease-cutting dishwashing cleaning agent and warm water. For older spots, try scrubbing the stain consistently with grease-cutting, biodegradable cleaners. Make certain to use a regular scrub brush. A wire brush can harm the driveway’s surface area.

    Take advantage of your house with a clean, well-kept driveway. It not just improves curb appeal, however merely lasts longer than drives that are ignored. A little maintenance now can bring big returns later on. Find out more about how home insurance can help you secure your financial investment.
