    Common Sense Tips for Maintaining Your Driveway

    Driveways are one of the most used areas of your home, often overlooked until they stain or break. Give them the attention they should have by making repair work quickly. Not only can you extend your driveway’s life and appealing appearance well into the future, you can conserve loan in the long term.
    Consider these 7 ideas to help you care for your driveway:

    1. Prevent cracks

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

    2. Fill cracks

    If fractures or holes do appear, patch them right away. Use a masonry chisel to get rid of loose materials and brush out the debris before applying a crack filler and patching compound. After the compound dries, seal the whole driveway Guaranteeing your driveway is smooth and level may also help in reducing tripping mishaps when visitors visit your house.

    3. Lessen 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 minimize its opportunities of permeating the surface. Also, make sure that downspouts empty into the backyard rather than onto the driveway.

    4. Don’t salt cement

    Cement salt and chemical de-icers can permeate surface areas, causing fractures. Both must be fixed. Instead of salting, utilize a snowblower or shovel to get rid of snow and use alternatives like sand, coffee premises, alfalfa meal or kitty litter to make surface areas less slippery. To melt ice, consider spraying the surface area with sugar beet juice, which decreases the melting point of ice and is considered effective in temperature levels as low at -20 ° F.

    5. Rake thoroughly

    Raise the blade of your snow plow enough to guarantee it does not scrape and damage the driveway surface area. If shoveling, utilize a plastic shovel for unequal surfaces to decrease its risk of catching on the driveway. Then, either push snow to the side and shovel that off or get rid of snow a few inches at a time while working your way earthward.

    6. Protect 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 far from the edges which construction vehicles never ever park there during home improvement projects.

    7. Clean your driveway

    Getting rid of discolorations caused by motor oil, radiator fluid and similar compounds impacts more than your drive’s appearance. Motor fluids can penetrate 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, attempt scrubbing the stain repeatedly with grease-cutting, naturally degradable cleaners. Make sure to utilize a regular scrub brush. A wire brush can damage the driveway’s surface area.

    Maximize your home with a clean, properly maintained driveway. It not only boosts curb appeal, but just lasts longer than drives that are neglected. A little maintenance now can bring huge returns later. Discover more about how home insurance can help you safeguard your investment.
