    Common Sense Tips for Maintaining Your Driveway

    Driveways are among the most utilized areas of your home, often ignored until they stain or crack. Give them the attention they should have by making repair work rapidly. Not only can you extend your driveway’s life and attractive appearance well into the future, you can save money in the long term.
    Think about these seven pointers to help you care for your driveway:

    1. Avoid cracks

    For driveways, prevention indicates sealing concrete each year and sealing asphalt every couple of years to prevent water from penetrating, freezing and splitting. Tree and shrub roots can cause cracks by rising from underneath. The option is to get rid of trees near drives or have their roots trimmed away.

    2. Fill cracks

    If cracks or holes do appear, spot them immediately. Use a masonry chisel to get rid of loose materials and brush out the debris prior to using a crack filler and patching compound. After the substance dries, seal the whole driveway Ensuring your driveway is smooth and level may also help in reducing tripping accidents when visitors visit your home.

    3. Reduce 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 reduce its chances of permeating the surface. Also, make sure that downspouts empty into the yard rather than onto the driveway.

    4. Do not salt cement

    Cement salt and chemical de-icers can penetrate surfaces, triggering cracks. Both should be repaired. Instead of salting, use a snowblower or shovel to remove snow and use options like sand, coffee grounds, alfalfa meal or cat litter to make surfaces less slippery. To melt ice, think about spraying the surface with sugar beet juice, which decreases the melting point of ice and is considered efficient in temperature levels as low at -20 ° F.

    5. Rake thoroughly

    Raise the blade of your snow rake enough to ensure it does not scrape and harm the driveway surface. If shoveling, use a plastic shovel for uneven surface areas to reduce its risk of catching on the driveway. Then, either push snow to the side and shovel that off or eliminate snow a couple of inches at a time while working your method earthward.

    6. Protect the edges

    Believe it or not, driveways aren’t designed for heavy trucks. Edges are especially susceptible, chipping under extreme weight. So make certain that your car is parked away from the edges and that construction vehicles never ever park there throughout house renovation tasks.

    7. Clean your driveway

    Removing discolorations brought on by motor oil, radiator fluid and comparable compounds impacts more than your drive’s look. Motor fluids can permeate approximately a quarter inch in concrete and can soften asphalt. Usage 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, naturally degradable cleaners. Make certain to utilize a regular scrub brush. A wire brush can harm the driveway’s surface.

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