Tips for extending your concrete driveway’s life
Concrete driveways usually last anywhere between 20 to 30 years. If you maintain your driveway really well, you may be able to extend the life of your driveway a little bit. Here are some things you should be doing to properly maintain your concrete driveway and extend it’s life:
- Repair any cracks ASAP: Cracks occasionally occur in concrete driveways, but if left alone, there is the potential for them to become bigger and cause damage. To repair any cracks, you can buy a crack repair product from a home repair store. If the crack is really big, you should hire a professional to repair it.
- Clean your driveway regularly: Dirt and debris will build up on your driveway from time to time and not only makes your driveway look unappealing, but if left there could cause damage.
- Reseal your driveway: Sealing your driveway helps to protect it from oil spills and staining. It’s recommended that you reseal your driveway every 1 to 3 years.
