    Common Sense Tips for Maintaining Your Driveway

    Driveways are one of the most used locations of your home, often neglected up until they stain or break. Provide the attention they should have by making repairs quickly. Not only can you extend your driveway’s life and appealing look well into the future, you can conserve money in the long term.
    Consider these seven ideas to help you care for your driveway:

    1. Avoid cracks

    For driveways, prevention suggests sealing concrete each year and sealing asphalt every few years to prevent water from penetrating, freezing and breaking. Tree and shrub roots can cause fractures by rising from below. The option is to get rid of trees near drives or have their roots cut away.

    2. Fill fractures

    If cracks or holes do appear, spot them right away. Utilize a masonry chisel to eliminate loose products and brush out the debris prior to using a crack filler and patching substance. After the substance dries, seal the whole driveway Guaranteeing your driveway is smooth and level may also help in reducing tripping mishaps when guests visit your house.

    3. Reduce water on the driveway.

    Clear a two to three-inch strip around the edges of the driveway to supply a runoff area for snow and water to minimize its possibilities of penetrating the surface area. Likewise, make sure that downspouts empty into the lawn instead of onto the driveway.

    4. Don’t salt cement

    Cement salt and chemical de-icers can permeate surfaces, causing cracks. Both need to be repaired. Rather of salting, utilize a snowblower or shovel to eliminate snow and use alternatives like sand, coffee grounds, alfalfa meal or cat 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 reliable in temperature levels as low at -20 ° F.

    5. Rake thoroughly

    Raise the blade of your snow rake enough to guarantee it doesn’t scrape and harm the driveway surface area. If shoveling, utilize a plastic shovel for irregular surface areas to decrease its danger 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 developed for heavy trucks. Edges are particularly vulnerable, breaking under excessive weight. So make certain that your car is parked far from the edges which construction vehicles never park there throughout home improvement tasks.

    7. Clean your driveway

    Getting rid of discolorations brought on by motor oil, radiator fluid and similar compounds impacts more than your drive’s look. Motor fluids can penetrate approximately a quarter inch in concrete and can soften asphalt. Use non-clumping kitty litter to soak up fresh oil, followed by grease-cutting dishwashing detergent and warm water. For older spots, try scrubbing the stain consistently with grease-cutting, naturally degradable cleaners. Make sure to use a regular scrub brush. A wire brush can damage the driveway’s surface area.

    Make the most of your house with a clean, well-kept driveway. It not just boosts curb appeal, but simply lasts longer than drives that are disregarded. A little maintenance now can bring huge returns later on. Find out more about how home insurance can assist you secure your investment.
