Your driveway is one of the most important parts of your home. Having a safe way to get on and off your property is crucial to living, working, and having guests over. There are many things that can go wrong with a driveway that may cause it to need repairs.
We’ll go over some of those reasons here.
Even concrete driveways are at the mercy of mother nature. When a concrete driveway is installed, it is coated with a protective sealant to protect it from the elements. The sealant protects from water, wind, general wear, and other forces and should last roughly ten years.
Over time, this sealant will eventually wear out. Wind and rain will gradually eat away at the surface of your driveway, making it rough and even potentially forming cracks and breaks in the structure. That’s why it’s important to look after your driveway and get repair and maintenance done to keep it lasting as long as possible.
Being driven on by vehicles will eventually wear down your driveway as well. Over the long term, repeated driving on a driveway just naturally eats away at the surface. Like with the weather, improper maintenance can wear down the surface of your driveway and cause cracks and other problems.
One way to prevent this is to have your driveway repaired and resealed every ten or so years. Concrete driveways can last up to 50 years or more, but only if you take care of them. Rock, gravel, or asphalt driveways are much less resilient and require much more maintenance and replacement.
Erosion is something that affects any surface that is built over solid ground. Rain can eat away at the soil underneath and cause holes to form, and eventually, the concrete or asphalt on top will break as a result.
When a driveway is installed, we will level the ground and make sure that the dirt underneath is as solid as possible so that you don’t have to worry about erosion for a long time. When erosion finally does start to eat away at your driveway, we’ll come out and relevel the surface and repair your driveway so that it’s like new.
Tree roots are quite possibly the worst type of danger for any kind of driveway. Root systems can travel very far underground and wind up coming out underneath driveways leading to large holes, cracks, and complete breakdowns in your driveway’s surface.
One way to deal with this issue is to remove any trees that are around the area of your driveway to ensure the root systems don’t spread underneath the paved area. You should also watch out for any signs that a tree is sick or dying to prevent limbs and trees from falling on your driveway or vehicles.
If tree roots have damaged your driveway, it’s best to get it repaired immediately and to excise the tree root to prevent further damage. Relocating your driveway is another option as well.
These are just some of the reasons to let Orlando Driveway Repair keep your driveway in great shape no matter what life throws your way. If you live in the Orlando or Kissimmee area, contact us today for a free estimate.
