    Common Sense Tips for Maintaining Your Driveway

    Driveways are among the most utilized areas of your home, typically ignored up until they stain or break. Provide the attention they deserve by making repair work rapidly. Not only can you extend your driveway’s life and attractive appearance well into the future, you can save money in the long term.
    Think about these 7 ideas to assist you look after your driveway:

    1. Avoid cracks

    For driveways, avoidance suggests sealing concrete annually and sealing asphalt every couple of years to prevent water from permeating, freezing and splitting. Tree and shrub roots can trigger fractures by rising from below. The solution is to eliminate trees near drives or have their roots cut away.

    2. Fill cracks

    If cracks or holes do appear, patch them immediately. Utilize a masonry chisel to get rid of loose materials and brush out the particles prior to applying a crack filler and patching substance. After the compound dries, seal the entire driveway Guaranteeing your driveway is smooth and level may also help reduce tripping accidents 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 permeating the surface. Likewise, ensure that downspouts empty into the backyard instead of onto the driveway.

    4. Don’t salt cement

    Cement salt and chemical de-icers can permeate surfaces, triggering cracks. Both must be repaired. Instead of salting, use a snowblower or shovel to remove snow and utilize options like sand, coffee grounds, alfalfa meal or kitty litter to make surfaces less slippery. To melt ice, think about spraying the surface with sugar beet juice, which decreases the melting point of ice and is considered effective in temperature levels as low at -20 ° F.

    5. Rake carefully

    Raise the blade of your snow rake enough to ensure it does not scrape and harm the driveway surface area. If shoveling, use a plastic shovel for uneven surfaces to minimize its danger of catching 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 method earthward.

    6. Secure the edges

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

    7. Clean your driveway

    Eliminating spots triggered by motor oil, radiator fluid and similar substances impacts more than your drive’s appearance. Motor fluids can permeate as much as a quarter inch in concrete and can soften asphalt. Usage non-clumping cat litter to absorb fresh oil, followed by grease-cutting dishwashing detergent and warm water. For older spots, try scrubbing the stain repeatedly with grease-cutting, biodegradable cleaners. Make certain to utilize a regular scrub brush. A wire brush can damage the driveway’s surface.

    Make the most of your house with a clean, properly maintained driveway. It not just enhances curb appeal, but simply lasts longer than drives that are overlooked.
