    Common Sense Tips for Maintaining Your Driveway

    Driveways are among the most used locations of your house, often neglected until they stain or break. Give them the attention they are worthy of by making repair work quickly. Not only can you extend your driveway’s life and appealing look well into the future, you can save money in the long term.
    Consider these seven tips to assist you take care of your driveway:

    1. Avoid cracks

    For driveways, prevention suggests sealing concrete each year and sealing asphalt every couple of years to avoid water from permeating, freezing and cracking. Tree and shrub roots can trigger cracks by rising from beneath. The solution is to remove trees near drives or have their roots cut away.

    2. Fill cracks

    If fractures or holes do appear, spot them instantly. Utilize 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 accidents when visitors visit your house.

    3. Decrease water on the driveway.

    Clear a 2 to three-inch strip around the edges of the driveway to provide a runoff location for snow and water to lower its opportunities of penetrating the surface. Also, make sure that downspouts empty into the backyard instead of onto the driveway.

    4. Don’t salt cement

    Cement salt and chemical de-icers can permeate surface areas, causing cracks. Both should be repaired. Rather of salting, utilize a snowblower or shovel to get rid of snow and use options like sand, coffee grounds, alfalfa meal or cat litter to make surface areas 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 effective in temperatures 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 risk of capturing on the driveway. Then, either push snow to the side and shovel that off or eliminate snow a few inches at a time while working your way earthward.

    6. Protect the edges

    Think it or not, driveways aren’t developed for heavy trucks. Edges are particularly susceptible, breaking under extreme weight. So ensure that your car is parked away from the edges which construction vehicles never ever park there during house renovation tasks.

    7. Clean your driveway

    Eliminating stains brought on by motor oil, radiator fluid and similar compounds affects more than your drive’s look. Motor fluids can permeate approximately a quarter inch in concrete and can soften asphalt. Use non-clumping kitty litter to absorb fresh oil, followed by grease-cutting dishwashing detergent and warm water. For older discolorations, attempt scrubbing the stain repeatedly with grease-cutting, naturally degradable cleaners. Be sure to utilize a regular scrub brush. A wire brush can harm the driveway’s surface.

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