    Common Sense Tips for Maintaining Your Driveway

    Driveways are one of the most used locations of your home, typically ignored until they stain or split. Provide the attention they should have by making repairs quickly. Not just can you extend your driveway’s life and appealing appearance well into the future, you can save cash in the long term.
    Think about these seven suggestions to help you look after your driveway:

    1. Avoid cracks

    For driveways, avoidance means sealing concrete each year and sealing asphalt every couple of years to prevent water from permeating, freezing and cracking. Tree and shrub roots can trigger fractures by pushing up from below. The solution is to remove trees near drives or have their roots cut away.

    2. Fill cracks

    If cracks or holes do appear, patch them instantly. Use a masonry sculpt to remove loose materials and brush out the particles before applying a fracture filler and patching substance. After the substance dries, seal the whole driveway Guaranteeing your driveway is smooth and level may also help in reducing tripping accidents when guests visit your house.

    3. Lessen 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 minimize its possibilities of permeating the surface. Likewise, make sure that downspouts empty into the yard instead of onto the driveway.

    4. Don’t salt cement

    Cement salt and chemical de-icers can penetrate surface areas, triggering cracks. Both must be fixed. Instead of salting, utilize a snowblower or shovel to eliminate snow and use alternatives like sand, coffee grounds, alfalfa meal or cat litter to make surfaces less slippery. To melt ice, think about spraying the surface area with sugar beet juice, which lowers the melting point of ice and is considered efficient in temperatures as low at -20 ° F.

    5. Rake carefully

    Raise the blade of your snow plow enough to ensure it does not scrape and harm the driveway surface. If shoveling, use a plastic shovel for uneven surfaces to decrease its risk of capturing 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. Protect the edges

    Believe it or not, driveways aren’t designed for heavy trucks. Edges are particularly vulnerable, breaking under extreme weight. So make sure that your car is parked far from the edges which construction vehicles never ever park there throughout home renovation tasks.

    7. Clean your driveway

    Removing stains triggered by motor oil, radiator fluid and similar compounds 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 absorb fresh oil, followed by grease-cutting dishwashing cleaning agent and warm water. For older spots, try scrubbing the stain repeatedly with grease-cutting, biodegradable cleaners. Be sure to utilize a routine scrub brush. A wire brush can harm the driveway’s surface area.

    Maximize your house with a clean, properly maintained driveway. It not just enhances curb appeal, but merely lasts longer than drives that are neglected. A little upkeep now can bring huge returns later. Learn more about how house insurance coverage can help you protect your investment.
