    Common Sense Tips for Maintaining Your Driveway

    Driveways are one of the most used areas of your house, frequently overlooked up until they stain or break. Provide the attention they deserve by making repairs rapidly. Not only can you extend your driveway’s life and attractive appearance well into the future, you can save cash in the long term.
    Think about these seven tips to help you look after your driveway:

    1. Avoid fractures

    For driveways, avoidance suggests sealing concrete each year and sealing asphalt every few years to avoid water from permeating, freezing and breaking. Tree and shrub roots can trigger fractures by pushing up from beneath. The option is to remove trees near drives or have their roots trimmed away.

    2. Fill fractures

    If fractures or holes do appear, patch them right away. Utilize a masonry chisel to get rid of loose products and brush out the debris prior to applying a crack filler and patching compound. After the substance dries, seal the entire driveway Guaranteeing your driveway is smooth and level may likewise help reduce tripping mishaps when visitors 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 area for snow and water to reduce its opportunities of penetrating the surface area. Likewise, make sure that downspouts empty into the lawn instead of onto the driveway.

    4. Don’t salt cement

    Cement salt and chemical de-icers can permeate surface areas, triggering fractures. Both should be repaired. Instead of salting, use a snowblower or shovel to get rid of snow and use alternatives like sand, coffee grounds, alfalfa meal or kitty litter to make surfaces less slippery. To melt ice, consider 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 plow enough to ensure it doesn’t scrape and damage the driveway surface area. If shoveling, use a plastic shovel for irregular surfaces to reduce its danger of capturing on the driveway. Then, either push snow to the side and shovel that off or get rid of snow a couple of inches at a time while working your method earthward.

    6. Safeguard the edges

    Think it or not, driveways aren’t developed for heavy trucks. Edges are particularly vulnerable, cracking under excessive weight. So make sure that your car is parked far from the edges and that construction vehicles never ever park there throughout house renovation jobs.

    7. Clean your driveway

    Eliminating spots triggered by motor oil, radiator fluid and similar compounds affects more than your drive’s appearance. Motor fluids can penetrate as much as a quarter inch in concrete and can soften asphalt. Use non-clumping cat litter to take in fresh oil, followed by grease-cutting dishwashing cleaning agent and warm water. For older spots, attempt scrubbing the stain consistently with grease-cutting, naturally degradable cleaners. Make sure to utilize a routine scrub brush. A wire brush can damage the driveway’s surface.

    Make the most of your house with a clean, well-maintained driveway. It not only boosts curb appeal, but just lasts longer than drives that are neglected. A little maintenance now can bring huge returns later on. Discover more about how home insurance can help you protect your financial investment.
