    Common Sense Tips for Maintaining Your Driveway

    Driveways are among the most used areas of your home, frequently overlooked up until they stain or split. Give them the attention they deserve by making repairs quickly. Not just can you extend your driveway’s life and appealing look well into the future, you can save money in the long term.
    Consider these 7 tips to help you look after your driveway:

    1. Prevent cracks

    For driveways, prevention indicates sealing concrete yearly and sealing asphalt every couple of years to prevent water from permeating, freezing and cracking. Tree and shrub roots can cause cracks by pushing up from below. The service is to remove trees near drives or have their roots trimmed away.

    2. Fill fractures

    If cracks or holes do appear, spot them immediately. Utilize a masonry chisel to remove loose materials and brush out the particles prior to applying a crack filler and patching compound. After the compound dries, seal the entire driveway Ensuring your driveway is smooth and level may also help reduce tripping mishaps when guests visit your house.

    3. Minimize water on the driveway.

    Clear a two to three-inch strip around the edges of the driveway to offer a runoff area for snow and water to lower its possibilities of penetrating the surface area. 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, triggering cracks. Both should be repaired. Instead of salting, use a snowblower or shovel to get rid of snow and use alternatives like sand, coffee grounds, alfalfa meal or kitty litter to make surface areas less slippery. To melt ice, think about spraying the surface with sugar beet juice, which reduces the melting point of ice and is considered effective in temperature levels as low at -20 ° F.

    5. Rake carefully

    Raise the blade of your snow plow enough to ensure it does not scrape and harm the driveway surface. If shoveling, utilize a plastic shovel for unequal surfaces to lower its danger 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

    Believe it or not, driveways aren’t created for heavy trucks. Edges are especially vulnerable, chipping under excessive weight. So make certain that your car is parked far from the edges and that construction vehicles never park there throughout home renovation jobs.

    7. Clean your driveway

    Removing stains brought on by motor oil, radiator fluid and comparable substances affects 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 take in fresh oil, followed by grease-cutting dishwashing cleaning agent and warm water. For older discolorations, try scrubbing the stain consistently with grease-cutting, biodegradable cleaners. Be sure to utilize a regular scrub brush. A wire brush can harm the driveway’s surface.

    Make the most of your house with a clean, well-maintained driveway. It not just enhances curb appeal, however merely lasts longer than drives that are disregarded. A little maintenance now can bring big returns later on. Learn more about how house insurance coverage can help you protect your financial investment.
