Driveways are one of the most used areas of your home, frequently ignored till they stain or crack. Provide the attention they should have by making repairs quickly. Not only can you extend your driveway’s life and attractive look well into the future, you can conserve cash in the long term.
Consider these seven ideas to help you look after your driveway:
1. Avoid cracks
For driveways, prevention means sealing concrete every year and sealing asphalt every couple of years to avoid water from permeating, freezing and splitting. Tree and shrub roots can cause cracks by pushing up from beneath. The option is to eliminate trees near drives or have their roots cut away.
2. Fill fractures
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 entire driveway Ensuring your driveway is smooth and level might also help reduce tripping mishaps when visitors visit your home.
3. Minimize water on the driveway.
Clear a 2 to three-inch strip around the edges of the driveway to offer a runoff area for snow and water to reduce its chances of penetrating the surface. Likewise, make sure that downspouts empty into the backyard rather than onto the driveway.
4. Don’t salt cement
Cement salt and chemical de-icers can permeate surfaces, causing fractures. Both must be repaired. Instead of salting, utilize a snowblower or shovel to eliminate snow and utilize options like sand, coffee grounds, alfalfa meal or cat litter to make surface areas less slippery. To melt ice, think about spraying the surface with sugar beet juice, which reduces the melting point of ice and is considered effective in temperatures as low at -20 ° F.
5. Plow carefully
Raise the blade of your snow rake enough to ensure it doesn’t scrape and harm the driveway surface. If shoveling, utilize a plastic shovel for unequal surfaces to minimize its risk 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 method earthward.
6. Protect the edges
Think it or not, driveways aren’t created for heavy trucks. Edges are especially susceptible, breaking under extreme weight. So ensure that your car is parked away from the edges which construction vehicles never park there throughout house improvement tasks.
7. Clean your driveway
Removing stains caused by motor oil, radiator fluid and comparable compounds impacts more than your drive’s look. Motor fluids can penetrate approximately a quarter inch in concrete and can soften asphalt. Usage 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 certain to utilize a regular scrub brush. A wire brush can harm the driveway’s surface.
