    Common Sense Tips for Maintaining Your Driveway

    Driveways are one of the most used areas of your home, often overlooked till they stain or break. Give them the attention they are worthy of by making repairs quickly. Not only can you extend your driveway’s life and appealing look well into the future, you can conserve cash in the long term.
    Think about these 7 tips to assist you take care of your driveway:

    1. Avoid cracks

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

    2. Fill fractures

    If cracks or holes do appear, spot them right away. Utilize a masonry chisel to remove loose materials and brush out the debris prior to using 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 visitors visit your house.

    3. Reduce 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 reduce its opportunities of penetrating the surface area. Likewise, guarantee that downspouts empty into the yard instead of onto the driveway.

    4. Do not salt cement

    Cement salt and chemical de-icers can penetrate surfaces, causing cracks. Both must be repaired. Instead of salting, utilize a snowblower or shovel to get rid of snow and use alternatives like sand, coffee premises, alfalfa meal or kitty litter to make surface areas less slippery. To melt ice, consider spraying the surface with sugar beet juice, which reduces the melting point of ice and is considered efficient in temperatures as low at -20 ° F.

    5. Plow carefully

    Raise the blade of your snow rake enough to guarantee it doesn’t scrape and damage the driveway surface area. If shoveling, use a plastic shovel for uneven surface areas to lower its danger of capturing on the driveway. Then, either push snow to the side and shovel that off or eliminate snow a couple of inches at a time while working your way earthward.

    6. Secure the edges

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

    7. Clean your driveway

    Eliminating spots brought on by motor oil, radiator fluid and comparable substances affects more than your drive’s look. 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, try scrubbing the stain consistently with grease-cutting, biodegradable cleaners. Make sure to utilize a routine scrub brush. A wire brush can damage the driveway’s surface.

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