    Common Sense Tips for Maintaining Your Driveway

    Driveways are one of the most used locations of your home, often overlooked up until they stain or split. Provide the attention they should have by making repairs rapidly. Not just can you extend your driveway’s life and appealing appearance well into the future, you can save loan in the long term.
    Consider these 7 tips to help you take care of your driveway:

    1. Prevent cracks

    For driveways, prevention means sealing concrete annually and sealing asphalt every few years to avoid water from penetrating, freezing and breaking. Tree and shrub roots can cause cracks by rising from below. The solution 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 instantly. Use a masonry sculpt to remove loose materials and brush out the particles prior to using a crack filler and patching compound. After the compound dries, seal the whole driveway Ensuring your driveway is smooth and level may also help in reducing tripping accidents when guests visit your house.

    3. Reduce water on the driveway.

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

    4. Do not salt cement

    Cement salt and chemical de-icers can penetrate surfaces, causing fractures. Both should be fixed. Rather of salting, use a snowblower or shovel to eliminate snow and use alternatives like sand, coffee premises, alfalfa meal or kitty litter to make surfaces less slippery. To melt ice, consider spraying the surface 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 guarantee it does not scrape and harm the driveway surface. If shoveling, utilize a plastic shovel for unequal surface areas to minimize its risk of capturing 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

    Think it or not, driveways aren’t designed for heavy trucks. Edges are especially vulnerable, chipping under excessive weight. So ensure that your car is parked far from the edges which construction vehicles never park there throughout home remodeling jobs.

    7. Clean your driveway

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

    Maximize your home with a clean, well-kept driveway. It not just improves curb appeal, but merely lasts longer than drives that are neglected. A little maintenance now can bring huge returns later. Find out more about how house insurance can assist you safeguard your investment.
