    Common Sense Tips for Maintaining Your Driveway

    Driveways are one of the most used areas of your home, frequently overlooked up until they stain or crack. Give them the attention they deserve 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 tips to help you care for your driveway:

    1. Prevent fractures

    For driveways, prevention indicates sealing concrete each year and sealing asphalt every few years to avoid water from penetrating, freezing and breaking. Tree and shrub roots can cause cracks by pushing up from below. The service is to get rid of trees near drives or have their roots cut away.

    2. Fill fractures

    If fractures or holes do appear, patch them instantly. Utilize a masonry chisel to eliminate loose materials and brush out the debris before using a crack filler and patching compound. After the compound dries, seal the whole driveway Guaranteeing your driveway is smooth and level may also help reduce tripping accidents when visitors visit your house.

    3. Lessen water on the driveway.

    Clear a 2 to three-inch strip around the edges of the driveway to offer a runoff location for snow and water to lower its chances of penetrating the surface area. Also, ensure that downspouts empty into the yard rather than onto the driveway.

    4. Don’t salt cement

    Cement salt and chemical de-icers can permeate surface areas, causing cracks. Both need to be fixed. Instead of salting, use a snowblower or shovel to eliminate snow and utilize alternatives like sand, coffee grounds, alfalfa meal or kitty litter to make surfaces less slippery. To melt ice, consider spraying the surface with sugar beet juice, which reduces the melting point of ice and is thought about 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, use a plastic shovel for irregular surface areas to decrease its threat of capturing on the driveway. Then, either push snow to the side and shovel that off or remove snow a few inches at a time while working your method earthward.

    6. Protect the edges

    Think it or not, driveways aren’t created for heavy trucks. Edges are particularly vulnerable, cracking under excessive weight. So make sure 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 discolorations caused by motor oil, radiator fluid and similar compounds impacts more than your drive’s appearance. Motor fluids can penetrate up to a quarter inch in concrete and can soften asphalt. Use non-clumping cat litter to soak up fresh oil, followed by grease-cutting dishwashing detergent and warm water. For older stains, attempt scrubbing the stain repeatedly with grease-cutting, biodegradable cleaners. Make sure to use a regular scrub brush. A wire brush can damage the driveway’s surface area.

    Take advantage of your house with a clean, well-maintained driveway. It not only boosts curb appeal, but merely lasts longer than drives that are overlooked. A little upkeep now can bring big returns later. Learn more about how house insurance coverage can help you protect your financial investment.
