    Common Sense Tips for Maintaining Your Driveway

    Driveways are among the most used areas of your house, often overlooked up 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 attractive appearance well into the future, you can conserve cash in the long term.
    Consider these 7 tips to help you look after your driveway:

    1. Prevent cracks

    For driveways, avoidance suggests sealing concrete every year and sealing asphalt every couple of years to prevent water from permeating, freezing and splitting. Tree and shrub roots can cause fractures by rising from underneath. The service is to get rid of trees near drives or have their roots trimmed away.

    2. Fill cracks

    If fractures or holes do appear, patch them immediately. Use a masonry sculpt to remove loose materials and brush out the particles prior to applying a crack filler and patching substance. After the compound dries, seal the entire driveway Guaranteeing your driveway is smooth and level might also help reduce tripping mishaps when guests visit your home.

    3. Decrease 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 opportunities of penetrating the surface. Also, make sure that downspouts empty into the lawn rather than onto the driveway.

    4. Do not salt cement

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

    5. Plow carefully

    Raise the blade of your snow rake enough to guarantee it does not scrape and damage the driveway surface area. If shoveling, utilize a plastic shovel for unequal surface areas to lower its threat 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 way earthward.

    6. Protect the edges

    Believe it or not, driveways aren’t created for heavy trucks. Edges are particularly vulnerable, chipping under excessive weight. So make sure that your car is parked away from the edges and that construction vehicles never park there throughout house improvement jobs.

    7. Clean your driveway

    Eliminating spots brought on by motor oil, radiator fluid and similar substances affects more than your drive’s appearance. Motor fluids can permeate up to a quarter inch in concrete and can soften asphalt. Usage non-clumping kitty litter to absorb fresh oil, followed by grease-cutting dishwashing cleaning agent and warm water. For older stains, try scrubbing the stain consistently with grease-cutting, naturally degradable cleaners. Make sure to utilize a routine scrub brush. A wire brush can harm the driveway’s surface area.
