    Common Sense Tips for Maintaining Your Driveway

    Driveways are among the most utilized areas of your house, often overlooked up until they stain or crack. Give them the attention they are worthy of by making repairs quickly. Not just can you extend your driveway’s life and attractive appearance 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 suggests sealing concrete annually and sealing asphalt every few years to prevent water from penetrating, freezing and splitting. Tree and shrub roots can trigger cracks by pushing up from underneath. The solution 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 instantly. Utilize a masonry sculpt to get rid of loose materials and brush out the particles before applying a fracture filler and patching substance. After the substance dries, seal the whole driveway Ensuring your driveway is smooth and level may also help reduce tripping mishaps when guests visit your home.

    3. Decrease water on the driveway.

    Clear a 2 to three-inch strip around the edges of the driveway to provide a runoff area for snow and water to decrease its possibilities 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, causing cracks. Both must be fixed. Rather of salting, utilize a snowblower or shovel to get rid of 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 area with sugar beet juice, which reduces the melting point of ice and is thought about reliable in temperatures as low at -20 ° F.

    5. Rake carefully

    Raise the blade of your snow plow enough to ensure it doesn’t scrape and damage the driveway surface area. If shoveling, use a plastic shovel for unequal surface areas 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. Safeguard the edges

    Think it or not, driveways aren’t created for heavy trucks. Edges are particularly vulnerable, chipping under excessive weight. So make certain that your car is parked far from the edges and that construction vehicles never park there during house remodeling jobs.

    7. Clean your driveway

    Getting rid of spots brought on by motor oil, radiator fluid and similar substances impacts more than your drive’s appearance. Motor fluids can penetrate approximately a quarter inch in concrete and can soften asphalt. Use non-clumping cat litter to take in fresh oil, followed by grease-cutting dishwashing cleaning agent and warm water. For older spots, attempt scrubbing the stain repeatedly with grease-cutting, biodegradable cleaners. Make sure to use a regular scrub brush. A wire brush can harm the driveway’s surface area.

    Maximize your house with a clean, well-maintained driveway. It not just boosts curb appeal, but just lasts longer than drives that are overlooked. A little maintenance now can bring huge returns later on. Learn more about how house insurance can help you protect your financial investment.
