Most people utilize their driveway daily (at least twice) to enter and exit their home or garage. After a hard day at work, pulling into your driveway feels great.
But sometimes driving up to your house isn’t as soothing as it should be. Over time, your driveway’s surface becomes damaged. Surface distress is produced by natural elements, drainage issues, and the daily weight and pressure of autos on the pavement.
Some indications that your driveway needs repaving:
Cracks in the Pavement
A driveway crack might cause serious issues. Cracks in your driveway are frequently a symptom of severe surface wear or a failing foundation.
Water can leak through cracks and below the surface of your driveway. This can cause foundation displacement due to seasonal weather expansion and contraction.
Potholes can severely damage tires and suspensions. Unrepaired asphalt fissures often develop deeper and broader, eventually becoming potholes.
Not immediately filling a little pothole might cause major inconvenience. You don’t want to speed up your driveway and smack your head against your car’s roof.
Pooling in the Driveway
If you notice water gathering on your driveway, it’s time for a makeover. This is a sign of inadequate drainage produced by surface depressions in the asphalt.
These puddles are not only an annoyance on rainy days, but they also expedite the deterioration of your driveway.
