    Common Sense Tips for Maintaining Your Driveway

    Driveways are one of the most used areas of your house, frequently overlooked up until they stain or crack. Provide the attention they should have by making repairs quickly. Not just can you extend your driveway’s life and attractive appearance well into the future, you can conserve cash in the long term.
    Think about these 7 suggestions to help you take care of your driveway:

    1. Avoid cracks

    For driveways, prevention suggests sealing concrete annually and sealing asphalt every couple of years to prevent water from permeating, freezing and breaking. Tree and shrub roots can trigger fractures by pushing up from underneath. The option is to eliminate trees near drives or have their roots trimmed away.

    2. Fill fractures

    If fractures or holes do appear, patch them right away. Utilize a masonry chisel to eliminate loose materials and brush out the particles before applying a fracture filler and patching substance. After the compound dries, seal the whole driveway Ensuring your driveway is smooth and level might likewise help in reducing tripping accidents when guests visit your house.

    3. Decrease water on the driveway.

    Clear a two to three-inch strip around the edges of the driveway to provide a runoff area for snow and water to lower its possibilities of penetrating the surface. Likewise, ensure that downspouts empty into the lawn rather than onto the driveway.

    4. Do not salt cement

    Cement salt and chemical de-icers can penetrate surface areas, causing fractures. Both should be repaired. Instead of salting, use a snowblower or shovel to get rid of snow and utilize options like sand, coffee premises, alfalfa meal or cat litter to make surfaces less slippery. To melt ice, think about spraying the surface area with sugar beet juice, which lowers the melting point of ice and is considered reliable in temperature levels 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, utilize 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 eliminate snow a few inches at a time while working your way earthward.

    6. Secure the edges

    Think it or not, driveways aren’t created for heavy trucks. Edges are particularly susceptible, cracking under excessive weight. So make sure that your car is parked away from the edges which construction vehicles never park there during house improvement projects.

    7. Clean your driveway

    Removing spots caused by motor oil, radiator fluid and similar substances affects more than your drive’s appearance. Motor fluids can penetrate approximately 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 discolorations, try scrubbing the stain consistently with grease-cutting, eco-friendly cleaners. Make sure to use a regular scrub brush. A wire brush can damage the driveway’s surface.
