    Common Sense Tips for Maintaining Your Driveway

    Driveways are one of the most used areas of your house, frequently ignored up until they stain or crack. 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 save money in the long term.
    Consider these 7 pointers to help you care for your driveway:

    1. Prevent fractures

    For driveways, prevention means sealing concrete each year and sealing asphalt every few years to avoid water from penetrating, freezing and splitting. Tree and shrub roots can trigger cracks 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, spot them instantly. Utilize a masonry chisel to eliminate loose materials and brush out the particles before using a fracture filler and patching compound. After the compound dries, seal the whole driveway Ensuring your driveway is smooth and level may also help reduce tripping mishaps when visitors visit your house.

    3. Decrease water on the driveway.

    Clear a 2 to three-inch strip around the edges of the driveway to provide a runoff location for snow and water to lower its possibilities of penetrating the surface. Likewise, make sure that downspouts empty into the yard instead of onto the driveway.

    4. Do not salt cement

    Cement salt and chemical de-icers can penetrate surfaces, causing cracks. Both must 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 efficient in temperature levels as low at -20 ° F.

    5. Rake carefully

    Raise the blade of your snow plow enough to guarantee it doesn’t scrape and harm the driveway surface area. If shoveling, utilize a plastic shovel for irregular surfaces to decrease its risk 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 method earthward.

    6. Secure the edges

    Believe it or not, driveways aren’t designed for heavy trucks. Edges are particularly susceptible, cracking under excessive weight. So make sure that your car is parked far from the edges which construction vehicles never ever park there during home remodeling tasks.

    7. Clean your driveway

    Eliminating spots brought on by motor oil, radiator fluid and similar substances affects more than your drive’s look. Motor fluids can penetrate as much as a quarter inch in concrete and can soften asphalt. Usage non-clumping cat litter to absorb fresh oil, followed by grease-cutting dishwashing cleaning agent and warm water. For older spots, attempt scrubbing the stain consistently with grease-cutting, biodegradable cleaners. Be sure to utilize a routine scrub brush. A wire brush can damage the driveway’s surface.

    Make the most of your home with a clean, properly maintained driveway. It not only boosts curb appeal, however simply lasts longer than drives that are neglected. A little maintenance now can bring huge returns later. Learn more about how house insurance coverage can help you safeguard your financial investment.
