    Common Sense Tips for Maintaining Your Driveway

    Driveways are one of the most used locations of your home, often overlooked up until they stain or split. Give them the attention they should have by making repairs quickly. Not just can you extend your driveway’s life and appealing look well into the future, you can save cash in the long term.
    Consider these seven ideas to help you care for your driveway:

    1. Avoid fractures

    For driveways, prevention means sealing concrete yearly and sealing asphalt every couple of years to prevent water from penetrating, freezing and splitting. Tree and shrub roots can trigger fractures by pushing up from below. The solution is to remove trees near drives or have their roots cut away.

    2. Fill cracks

    If cracks or holes do appear, patch them instantly. Use a masonry chisel to remove loose materials and brush out the debris before using a crack filler and patching compound. After the compound dries, seal the entire driveway Guaranteeing your driveway is smooth and level may also help in reducing tripping accidents when visitors visit your house.

    3. Decrease water on the driveway.

    Clear a two to three-inch strip around the edges of the driveway to supply a runoff location for snow and water to minimize its opportunities of penetrating the surface. Likewise, guarantee that downspouts empty into the yard instead of onto the driveway.

    4. Do not salt cement

    Cement salt and chemical de-icers can permeate surfaces, triggering fractures. Both should be repaired. Rather of salting, use a snowblower or shovel to eliminate snow and use options like sand, coffee grounds, alfalfa meal or kitty litter to make surfaces less slippery. To melt ice, consider spraying the surface with sugar beet juice, which lowers the melting point of ice and is considered efficient in temperatures as low at -20 ° F.

    5. Plow carefully

    Raise the blade of your snow plow enough to guarantee it doesn’t scrape and damage the driveway surface area. If shoveling, utilize a plastic shovel for uneven surface areas to decrease its threat of catching on the driveway. Then, either push snow to the side and shovel that off or get rid of snow a couple of inches at a time while working your way earthward.

    6. Secure the edges

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

    7. Clean your driveway

    Removing spots triggered by motor oil, radiator fluid and comparable compounds impacts more than your drive’s appearance. Motor fluids can penetrate as much as 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 discolorations, try scrubbing the stain consistently with grease-cutting, naturally degradable cleaners. Be sure to use 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 just improves curb appeal, however just lasts longer than drives that are neglected. A little upkeep now can bring big returns later. Learn more about how home insurance can assist you secure your investment.
