Your home might be the most beautiful home on the block but a worn driveway won’t do much for its curb appeal. While driveway paving can last for many years, eventually there will come a time when you’ll need to replace it. If you’re not sure if repaving is needed, look out for the signs mentioned below.
Small cracks are easy to repair but cracks that are deep and wide suggest serious damage. Since bigger cracks can’t be repaired, it’s best to completely replace the driveway. Repairing them will only last a short while. If you do decide to repair rather than replace, keep in mind that the spots that have been repaired will appear darker and noticeable, thus still affect your home’s appearance.
Large holes in your driveway need to be replaced as soon as possible since they can lead to injury if someone were to step in them or trip on them. They can also cause major damage to your car’s suspension and tyres. It can damage even more of your driveway by loosening the materials if water collects in the holes.
- Drainage issues
Water won’t affect your driveway if it’s in a good condition. If you have drainage problems, however, it can lead to even more serious damage. If your driveway is sloped or uneven, this will cause water to pool in specific areas which will weaken your paving, resulting in more holes and cracks.
